QUOTES OF THE WEEK:
“It is one of the commonest of mistakes to consider that the limit of our power of perception is also the limit of all there is to perceive. ” –C.W. Leadbeater
“Associate with people who are likely to improve you.” –Seneca
“The huge spiritual world that music produces in itself, ends up overcoming material poverty. From the minute a child’s taught how to play an instrument, he’s no longer poor. He becomes a child in progress, heading for a professional level, who’ll later become a citizen.” –Dr. José Antonio Abreu
