A favorite quote

I saw this today and liked it so much that I wanted to share it. I'm sure it's true about many things, but I believe it can be well-applied to the writing arena.

Don't only practice your art, 
But force your way into its Secrets,
for it and knowledge can 
raise men to the Divine.

Ludwig van Beethoven

(To watch The Piano Guys' Beethoven's 5 Secrets and enjoy the music they posted with the quote, check out this link.)


  1. That's a beautiful song! and I love how "into" his cello playing he is (what's that WHITE instrument though?--odd cello/base violin thingie he's playing on the hillside). I like the Piano Guys, and have to listen to more of their stuff. :) Thanks!

  2. Hey, Carol. : ) The white instrument is one of his electric cellos. You'll really enjoy their music. Besides being absolutely beautiful, they make it fun. Glad you liked it. : )
