Sing Books with Emily, the Blog

Posts Tagged ‘Thomas Szasz

I’ve devoted a good portion of my life to sharing song and I believe  the making of music simultaneously nurtures the flowering of the music maker and improves the climate for living in general.  Singing (and the act of making music) is one of the ultimate acts of self expression.

I like these quotes:

*
The self is not something ready-made, but something in continuous formation through choice of action.

(John Dewey, American Philosopher)

*
People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself. But the self is not something one finds, it is something one create
s.
(Thomas Szasz,  American Psychologist)

My husband often says, “Life is choices.”

I’ll choose to sing and to create and express myself that way and believe in my heart that in doing so, the world becomes a better place.

I also like this,

*
We are the music makers, / And we are the dreamers of dreams
(Arthur O’Shaughnessy, British Poet)

When I first heard this said, it was Willy Wonka who said it.
