A Quote About Life


"She played on, finding solace, courage, fortitude, and a kindred spirit in a piece of music written in 1830. A series of notes scrawled on the page that sprang from the imagination of one man, who was reaching out across time, through this violin, to tell her that he knew exactly how she was feeling, how strange and frightening and intoxicating life could be." -City of Dark Magic by Magnus Flyte

Isn't that so incredibly true? Life is a beautiful, sometimes scary, exhilarating ride.

    1. Thank you :)

      I have a huggge collection. Two cabinets. This is one of my sorta cheesy personal favorites. My father loved them when I was growing up so they have a nostalgic value to them as well. It's from a series called Hooked on Classics.

  12. It's so true! My version, though not as lovely as the quote above, is that it's like a roller coaster (ups, downs, and goes by too quickly)
