#1261 Not to be taken too seriously

Life is like music; it must be composed by ear, feeling and instinct, not by rule.

Books are like imprisoned souls till someone takes them down from a shelf and frees them.

Life is like playing the violin in public and learning the instrument as one goes on.

If life must not be taken too seriously, then so neither must death.

Nothing is so cruel as to try and force a man beyond his natural pace.

Quotes by Samuel Butler 

- To what extent do feelings and instinct guide you through life?
- What are you learning about life?
- What is your pace through life?
