My piano, my friend


~*~ one of my very favorite pastimes ~*~
{picture by Anna}

"Pianos are such noble instruments - they're either upright or grand."
~ Author Unknown

"A painter paints pictures on canvas. But musicians paint their pictures on silence."
~ Leopold Stokowski

"To play without passion is inexcusable!"
~ Ludwig van Beethoven

"One man gets nothing but discord out of a piano; another gets harmony. No one claims the piano is at fault."
~ Author Unknown

Without a piano I don't know how to stand, don't know what to do with my hands.
~ Norah Jones

"The piano is able to communicate the subtlest universal truths by means of wood, metal and vibrating air."
~ Kenneth Miller

  3. I love this post! Thanks for sharing the quotes... the photo is very nice too. I love my piano too, whenever I walk by my living room I often can't help but start practising! Which is a good thing because I have a piano exam soon!
