Thank you Ana P. Rose for tagging me in the 3-Day Quote Challenge. Ana’s a student discovering through research and poetry the importance of emotional intelligence, and deciphering what it means to be genuinely human. Please visit her site. There is much beauty there.
In her honor, my theme is The Rose.

With one last thanks to Ioana, composer, songwriter, and music & piano teacher who writes Music Teacher Lifestyle, I offer my third and final “Musical Quote”. And after that, I hope you’ll give your ears a different adventure by letting them listen to Ioana’s Listening Days.
Sometimes certain lyrics get stuck in your head. The first time I heard this, these words were those lyrics. I’ve linked the official video in the title. Warning: Unless your blood has turned your heart into iron ore, be ready to shed a few tears.
I like to think this is what Gerard Way thought when he broke up the band and crushed my emo soul.

Gracious Ioana, composer, songwriter, and music & piano teacher who writes Music Teacher Lifestyle, challenged me to the 3-Day Quote Challenge. How could I say no? To honor her, my theme is “Musical Quotes”.
My favorite classical composer is Ludwig van Beethoven. Energy charges through his creations like
wild horses stampeding across the plains, or
stormy waves breaking over a ship’s bow, or
new love ravaging a tender heart.
His brilliance will not be denied, and people all over the world listen and interpret for themselves.
The lovely Ioana, who lives in Bucharest, Romania, has challenged me to the 3-Day Quote Challenge. She is the composer, song writer, and music & piano teacher who writes Music Teacher Lifestyle. To honor all Ioana does to make the world more beautiful, my theme is “Musical Quotes”.
Stephen Schwartz has composed many world-famous musicals, captivating our hearts with his ability to touch the Truth in our souls. Wicked, is the real story behind the Witches of Oz, Glinda (soon to become the Good Witch of the North) and Elphaba (destined to become the Wicked Witch of the West). Having been reluctant roommates who became friends, they’ve come to the moment they must go their separate ways.
“For Good” celebrates the power friendship has to make changes in our lives, our hearts, and our selves.
“Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better
But because I knew you…
Because I knew you…
I have been changed for good.” Glinda and Elphaba
With thanks to DailyMusings at A Day in the Life for reminding me of Wicked‘s glorious music.
