Yehudi Menuhin

I can only think of music as something inherent in every human being - a birthright. Music coordinates mind, body and spirit.More Yehudi Menuhin [07/28/2011 05:07:08]
Music creates order out of chaos: for rhythm imposes unanimity upon the divergent, melody imposes continuity upon the disjointed, and harmony imposes compatibility upon the incongruous.More Yehudi Menuhin [07/28/2011 05:07:15]
The violinist is that peculiarly human phenomenon distilled to a rare potency - half tiger, half poet.More Yehudi Menuhin [07/28/2011 05:07:20]
The violinist must possess the poet's gift of piercing the protective hide which grows on propagandists, stockbrokers and slave traders, to penetrate the deeper truth which lies within.More Yehudi Menuhin [07/28/2011 05:07:30]

Homeopathy is the safest and more reliable approach to ailments and has withstood the assaults of established medical practice for over 100 yearsMore Yehudi Menuhin [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I would hate to think I am not an amature. An amateur is one who loves what he is doing. Very often, I'm afraid, the professional hates what he is doing. So, I'd rather be an amateur.More Yehudi Menuhin [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

The art of creation lies in the gift of perceiving the particular and generalizing it, thus creating the particular again. It is therefore a powerful transforming force and a generator of creative solutions in relation to a given problem. It is the currency of human exchanges, which enables the sharing of states of the soul and conscience, and the discovery of new fields of experience.More Yehudi Menuhin [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We embark unhesitatingly on the path, in a direction that is absolutely right and urgent, supported by everyone, in the knowledge that this path is but a learning process... We have to keep on learning, creating, applying, by-passing, touching upon, refining and clarifying a number of notions and details that need to be improvised and applied and which, thank God, we cannot foresee. The only rigidity lies in our will, our conviction that we are on the right road and that our initiatives are most pressing.More Yehudi Menuhin [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Each human being has the eternal duty of turning what is hard and brutal into
a tender and subtle offering, what is crude into an object of refinement, what
is ugly into a thing of beauty, confrontation into collaboration, ignorance into
knowledge, hereby rediscovering the child's dream of a creative reality
incessantly renewed by death, the servant of life, and by life the servant of loveMore Yehudi Menuhin [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

The practice of yoga induces a primary sense of measure and proportion. Reduced to our own body, our first instrument, we learn to play it, drawing from it maximum resonance and harmony.More Yehudi Menuhin [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Music is a therapy.It is a communication far more powerful than words, far more immediate, far more efficient.More Yehudi Menuhin [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We are living in a world where the individual must learn to command the raw materials of expression. He must not be dependent all the time on the ready-made, the finished product. It's the transferring, the changing of the raw into what is the expression of your own self – the whole joy and satisfaction and frustration of life is built into this.More Yehudi Menuhin [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
...Why is compassion not part of our established curriculum, an inherent part of our education? Compassion, awe, wonder, curiosity, exaltation, humility - these are the very foundation of any real civilisation, no longer the prerogatives, the preserves of any one church, but belonging to everyone, every child in every school.More Yehudi Menuhin [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Peace may sound simple - one beautiful word - but it requires everything we have, every quality, every strength, every dream, every high ideal.More Yehudi Menuhin [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I can only think of music as something inherent in every human being - a birthright. Music coordinates mind, body and spirit.More Yehudi Menuhin [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Music lives and breathes to tell us who we are and what we face. It is a path between ourselves and the infinite.More Yehudi Menuhin [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We are full of rhythms . . . our pulse, our gestures, our digestive tracts, the lunar and seasonal cycles.More Yehudi Menuhin [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Improvisation is the expression of the accumulated yearnings, dreams, and wisdom of the soul.More Yehudi Menuhin [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In all teaching there must be a fusion of authority as an adult providing a stable framework for the children in one's care, and humility as another human being ready to educate an equal who may turn out to be a superior.More Yehudi Menuhin [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Our life must have an aim, but we must also ensure that the direction we take is a good one.More Yehudi Menuhin [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Everyone should in some way be creative, irrespective of the quality of that which he creates.More Yehudi Menuhin [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The ultimate aim in life should be to fulfill to the utmost all that within our ability and to share that which is good and beautiful.More Yehudi Menuhin [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
