  4. ...unless music freely accompanies your words and then both are carried on the waves that belong only to true song and poetry is born.

  6. Many people have talents, they know they have them, but are unable to put it into practice, for fear, laziness or lack of luck, I guess...
    Nowadays I'm one of these people...

  7. This reminds me of my daughter. She is sixteen and can't ride a bike.
    She says she KNOWS how - she just can't.
    I say if you knew HOW - then you could, so really...you can't!

    or

    We are not friends until our friendship is not time tested.

  9. The best singing comes from the heart. Great post. We need more singing from the heart.

  10. The best singing is an expression that is already a part of you, and comes out as the joys of life leak out.

  11. Knowing how to write is still not writing.

    Glad you write, Marty! All of our lives are enriched.

  12. Right Marty. The best that can be said of any art is that either you can do it or you can't. You never have to tell anyone whether or not you can do it...you show them. See American Idol. Here's a site you might find interesting: www.dreamslaughter.com. Good collection of current and historical quotations.
