Wisdom of the Creative Realms: Music #grogz

It's Day 4 of M. Pax's Realms Faire! I'm hosting the Wisdom of the Creative Realms. It has been so much fun---as well as enlightening---to read all of the great quotes you're posting in the comments. I can feel myself getting wiser already. Thank you, thank you!

Through the ages, the arts have spoken truth and wisdom in a way that resonates far deeper than the words from any textbook can. King Arthur's table was round to encourage equality and open sharing of opinions. From November 10-14, consider my blog to be a round table at which I invite you to sit and share wisdom from the creative arts. Today we're finding bits of wisdom from Music.


Either in the comments here or at your own blog, share with the round table a quote or piece of wisdom from a piece of music. Here's mine:

The whole song is rife with practicality and keen observations on the various walks of mankind. If you don't have time to listen to the whole song, here are a few choice lyrices:

It's man devouring man, my dear - then who are we to deny it in here?
A politician so oily it's served with a a doily
The clergy is really too course and too mealy
Try an actor, it's compactor - ah, but always arrives overdone

We're nearing the end of the Realms Faire, so yeah, I might be getting a little punchy...and now you see why I rely on you to up the ante on depth around here.


Enter my givaway simply by sharing a wisdom in the comments below. If you post your wisdom at your blog, let me know in the comments and you'll be awarded 5 EXTRA points! Points accumulate until midnight on Friday and winners will be announced the following Monday.

The prizes:

Aliana Fagan spent her childhood traveling the world, dreaming of legendary heroes and mythical lands. But after the sudden death of her parents, she hides behind the safety of her camera and her art until a vivid recurring dream compels her to dig into her father's research about Avalon and Camelot. When she is hurled into a magical realm by forces she thought were only the stuff of fairy tales, she finds herself thrown into an adventure she could never have imagined. Nearly everything she thought she knew about Arthurian legend was wrong. 

2 random winners of eBooks of Shades of Avalon by Carol Oates.

Ben Pryor grew up as an average kid in Camden, Maine, unaware of the supernatural storm brewing in his Celtic blood. However, at nineteen, as the last born in the royal line of beings that once ruled Atlantis, Ben has eagerly embraced his newfound abilities and birthright. In the sequel to Shades of Atlantis, Ben will delve deeper than he ever imagined into the old, magical ways of the Guardians, the secrets of Excalibur, and the truth behind the legend of King Arthur. What exactly did the Council hide beneath the citadel of Camelot? And can it help get Caleb back without putting the world in danger?

The VelociRaffle for the entire Faire features these books plus lots, lots more.

Words of wisdom from a song... Might have me stumped there. Maybe the song Rose of Sharyn by Killswitch Engage.
Might have to think about it some more...

There was lots of wisdom in those Schoolhouse Rocks songs. Conjunction Function... and that one about how a bill becomes a law.

I love these words from The Impossible Dream:

To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march,
march into hell
For that heavenly cause
And I know
If I'll only be true
To this glorious quest
That my heart
Will lie peaceful and calm
When I'm laid to my rest...
