Quality music and art is an essential nutrient to a healthy society.  Our creative natures cannot be satisfied when there is a lack of quality music and art.  Indeed, lacking quality music & art is like having a vitamin and mineral deficiency.   

Whoever believes that music and art are important to the health and well being of society is in good company. A variety of historical figures recognized and discussed just this.   Jesus, Plato, Confucius, Shakespeare, Mozart, Beethoven, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Einstein share the belief that music improves life.  In fact, people of all cultures understand that there is a one-of-a-kind benefit from music.  The following quotes affirm the importance of music for a healthy society. 

"You can judge the health of a society by the quality of its music" - Confucius

“Music is the universal language of mankind" - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

"A laugh is just like music.  It lingers in the heart, and where the melody is heard the ills of life depart." - Unknown

“Music is moral law. It gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination; a charm to sadness and a gaiety and life to everything. It is the essence of order and leads to all that is good, true and beautiful.- Plato

"Music produces a kind of pleasure which human nature cannot do without." - Confucius 

Music rightly is the best mind trainer. - Dr. Charles Eloit, former president of Harvard University  

“Art is unquestionably one of the purest and highest elements in human happiness. It trains the mind through the eye, and the eye through the mind. As the sun colors flowers, so does art color life." - Sir John Lubbock, 1834–1913

The history of a people is found in its songs."  - George Jellinek
