„Music can be all things to all men. It is like a great dynamic sun in the center of a solar system which sends out its rays and inspiration in every direction. … It is as if the heavens open and a divine voice calls. Something in our souls responds and understands. We are speaking here of the most inspired music.“

Music For All Of Us (1943); also quoted as "...Music can be all things to all persons... "
Contexto: I believe that music can be an inspirational force in all our lives — that its eloquence and the depth of its meaning are all-important, and that all personal considerations concerning musicians and the public are relatively unimportant — that music come from the heart and returns to the heart — that music is spontaneous, impulsive expression — that its range is without limit — that music is forever growing — that music can be one element to help us build a new conception of life in which the madness and cruelty of wars will be replaced by a simple understanding of the brotherhood of man.

„Music religious heat inspires,
It wakes the soul, and lifts it high“

—  Joseph Addison politician, writer and playwright 1672 - 1719

Song for St. Cecilia's Day (1692), st. 4.

It wakes the soul, and lifts it high,
And wings it with sublime desires,
And fits it to bespeak the Deity.

„The Soul is like divine music that only God can hear; it is the force of endless resurrection; the soul is like a fire that never goes out.“

—  Caroline Myss author from the United States 1952

Entering the Castle : An Inner Path to God and Your Soul (2007), p. 57
Contexto: The Soul is a fact, but it is not physical. … Survivors of near-death experiences attest that some part of them apparently detaches from their physical bodies following the death of the body, but while that is proof of the soul for them, it does not prove it to us. The Soul is like divine music that only God can hear; it is the force of endless resurrection; the soul is like a fire that never goes out.
