all that is good

Music is a moral law. It gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, gaiety and life to everything. It is the essence of order, and leads to all that is good, just, and beautiful, of which it is the invisible, but nevertheless dazzling, passionate, and eternal form.

--Plato

How wonderful. Music is such a part of me - I can't imagine life without it. All of those smiling hopeful faces. I love the ribbon/paper birds on the back wall.

It has been proven that if music is played in a vet's office, it helps to calm the animals. It is a universal language. Music comes in through your ears and resonates in your soul. Even those unable to hear can feel it.

I scanned for Little Bit's face, but didn't find it.

"After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music."

Aldous Huxley

Music hath charms to soothe the savage breast,
To soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak.
