An old soul, something with character – and maybe a bit old school too. Still, it is more than just timeless.
I always tend to say that I love anything that has a character. I need old stuff to “speak“ to me. I learned everything has it’s own story and I enjoy being open for it. Imagine the history of old furniture, for example an antique chair. Where was it made and when? Who owned it before and who sat on it? Imagine the happy and the sad moments the chair has witnessed. Maybe it was broken and got fixed, maybe…
…And after all it reached you! It is not just a chair anymore. It’s a chair with a long story behind it. We should pay attention. Awareness is the key to appreciate life!
Start asking questions again. Look for answers. Meaning: improvement and personal growth. Find out where things are coming from, get an idea on the long way it made to finally reach you.
I love old souls. I love music. I love quotes:
“Music is a moral law. It gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, and life to everything. It is the essence of order, and leads to all that is good, just and beautiful, of which it is the invisible, but nevertheless dazzling, passionate, and eternal form.” (Plato)
(Source: Wordsworth Dictionary of Musical Quotations, 1991, p. 45)
This always has been one of my favorite quotes. It has been with me for ages. I somehow took it for granted, until I made a very small research on it.
It is a quote a lot of people refer to. It is used in so many positive ways just like music itself. It is boundless. It traveled through time and place to reach anyone who is open for it.
Plato already knew all this back in the days, isn’t that simply amazing how far his thoughts traveled to finally reach and to touch us?!
