Plato + Music

“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.” -Plato

I love this quote because it exhibits the beauty and purpose of music. The fact that Plato, one of the most brilliant minds, was able to see how powerful music really is makes it that more meaningful. There is something beautiful to music and there is a reason we blast it through our speakers everywhere we go. It isn’t just an unexplained feeling or a coincidence. Nowadays, the common way is to ignore the reason and rhyme that is behind our entire existence. Everything that is is for no reason. But God had and has a plan for everything that is, and to turn a blind eye to that is ignorant. The same goes for music. There are reasons that we enjoy it so much and it has been so prevalent throughout history…..
