A Quote From “The Forbidden Kingdom”

I watched The Forbidden Kingdom on DVD recently and it was a good movie. So, there was this quote from the movie that stuck with me. I don’t remember the exact quote, but it went something like this:

Music is a connection between Earth and Heaven…

And in many ways, the quote rings true, though I would modify it a little bit because there are all kinds of music out there… I would say:

Music, in its purest, artistic form, that uplifts the soul to greater heights, and is something which comes straight from the heart, is a true connection between Heaven and Earth.

Does that sound better? I think it’s general enough to refer to all types of music in this world. I feel that if music is pure and true, and has integrity, and uplifts and inspires… then it is truly sublime…

    Nowhere inside your rambling, incoherent submit was there any sign of intelligence. I give you no points and may possibly God have mercy on your soul.
