Music Toasts

Here's to music, which Henry Wadsworth Longfellow called "the universal language of mankind."

To the soothing influence of music. As William Congreve said, "Music hath charms to soothe the savage breast."

To music, which John Erskine called "the only language in which you cannot say a mean or sarcastic thing."

To music. As Friedrich Nietzsche said, "Without music, life would be a mistake."

Let's lift our glass to the conductor - a person who rarely composes himself.

To mirth, music, and moderation.
Mirth at every board,
Music in all instruments,
Moderation in our desires.
