"Music is innately transcendent because it is intrinsically human. You don't have to seek too hard to find its beauty; simply even a casual listen seems to do the trick more often than not." - Jo-Michael Scheibe
"Everyone loves music. Even people who don't like music still like it. Like it or not, it's everywhere, all the time; birds chirping, the shuffle of people's feet, and the inhale and exhale of your breath. That's a song. That's life. Life is somehow overtly musical, yet so many people aren't aware of it." - Jo-Michael Scheibe
