Thread Name: Proverb about singing
Subject: RE: Proverb about singing
Nice thread. I'm glad it got revived!

I have a Dutch Delft plate on my wall with a well-known (and very true) Dutch proverb. The English translation of the text, which is in Dutch, is:
"In the concert of life, nobody gets a program."

Another favorite is a Chekov (I think) quote that goes something like:
"Music unlocks the frozen rivers of the heart." (anybody got a Bartlett's to check on the exact words?)
