Statement/Quote

TOPIC 1:

Music

02-83

"Amateur … concerts take place continually and every locality has its own. But sometimes there are grand concerts by the great artists."

02-90

"We had a concert today and instead of going to a hall we fancied to be romantic, so we went by will-power to a beautiful cave that was hung with stalactites. We improvised seats and a stage and hung it full of flowers, and after the company were seated we made a curtain and all the performers went behind and we dressed ourselves in costumes we materialized to represent the gods and goddesses of Greece. I was Apollo, Elsie was Diana… We had fine music and lots of fun."

02-92

"Here, music is the very highest and noblest of the sciences and those who are proficient in it are looked up to and their company is always sought."

02-113

"We have just been to the Hall of Music where there was a grand concert. Mozart played on the piano and Ole Bull and Paganini on the violin, which was certainly the finest music I ever heard."

02-118

"I cannot describe to you what a beautiful little musical sanctum we found. It was built of the purest blue crystal with rare figures of old paintings cut in the glass and on the top was a statue of the Goddess of Music. A splendid piano was in the room and here his wife took her seat and on a table were a dozen of the finest violins. Mason took one, I another, and he a silver cornet. We four played and made the very air ring with melody for more than two hours."

02-123

"The concert was a "grand affair" and the garden was crowded. Their dress was very much like on earth but much finer. We got very close to the stand as I was greatly interested in hearing what sort of music the fine artists of China would make. The leader….said something to the band and all at once they broke out into a sort of overture that made me jump. Of all the hideous groaning and growling and creaking, you never heard the like. And just to show how people's tastes differ, I looked around after the overture was concluded, and the whole crowd was in a broad grin of delight and was applauding for all they were worth."

07-97

"There are vast musical consciousnesses where entire operas, symphonies, and the like are in constant production."

12 - 112

"Heard sounds are sweet, but those unheard are sweeter. So, it is with our music here, for we are aware of rhythms and harmonious blending of notes which transcend any thing heard there in the highest quality."

17-234

"There are places on my sphere where they can listen to beautiful music when they choose. Everybody, even here doesn't care for music, so it's not in my sphere compulsory."

18-48

"There is always plenty of beautiful music to listen to. All kinds of instruments are played, and those who desire to do so can play in this great orchestra."

18-114

"The music of your world is crude, indeed, compared to celestial compositions and songs. Here we have harmonious vibrations, expressed in what is called music. It elevates the soul, and we devote much time to its cultivation and to instruments for its expression."

25-93

"We derive much pleasure from the exercise of our talents in vocal and instrumental music, which far excels the noblest efforts of musical genius on earth."

29-47

"Music is looked upon by many on the earth-plane as merely a pleasant diversion, a pleasant adjunct to the earthly life, but by no means a necessity. Here it is part of our life, not because we make it so, but because it is part of natural existence, as are flowers and trees, grass and water, and hills and dales. It is an element of spiritual nature. Without it a vast deal of the joy would depart out of our lives."

32-81

"The air seems to be full of music. Not everybody has to pick it up, though. You only pick up the music if you want to. You don't need to have it if you don't want it. You can shut it out and be in silence."

TOPIC 2:

Painting

02-83

"We were at the Hall of Painting today….to see a new painting by Rembrandt. It was Christ on the Mount. There is a wonderful cave which was once devoted to Art by Hindu spirits. The walls are a mass of the funniest looking carvings."

29-30

"This hall was of very great size and contained a long gallery, on the walls of which were hanging every great masterpiece known to man. … there were many groups listening to the words of able teachers, who were demonstrating the various phases in the story of art as exemplified upon the walls … What we had seen was an earthly counterpart, which was perishable from the usual causes-for example, from fire or the general disintegration through the passage of time. But here we were viewing the direct results of the thoughts of the painter, created in the etheric before he actually transferred those thoughts to his earthly canvas."

31-49

"I think the happiest people I have met on this side have been the painters. Our matter is so light and subtle, and so easily handled, that it falls readily into the forms of the imagination"

TOPIC 3:

Sculpture

02-118

"I cannot describe to you what a beautiful little musical sanctum we found. It was built of the purest blue crystal with rare figures of old paintings cut in the glass and on the top was a statue of the Goddess of Music."

02-88

"When we reached the statue we found it represented "Free Thought and Religious Liberty" and had been erected hundred of years before by a large band of free-thinkers who had denied the supremacy of the Pope on earth and had been burned at the stake in the time of the Inquisition."

31-254

"There are sculptors in this world who mold for the love of the work more beautiful fountains than your sculptors mold for money."

TOPIC 4:

Literature and Libraries

03-124

"We have books and we can read them."

17-209

"He went into the library…and he says the books there seem to be the same as you read."

18-112

"[No books] are permitted in our libraries that are not founded upon truth. It is interesting to see the vast number of spirit people thronging our libraries, studying the works of the more advanced spirits."

20-158

"We have books, and people who delight in making them very much as do authors on earth. Perhaps we do not read quite so much as you do; because we are now able to converse personally with the authors. … Still, we have the books and there are libraries. In those libraries are many books which have never been published on the earth."

29-32

"The volumes with which the shelves of this section of the great library were filled, would prove illuminating. The reader would be able to gain, for the first time, the truth about the history of his country. Every word contained in these books was the literal truth. Concealment is impossible, because nothing but the truth can enter these realms."

29-33

"The books … are works of art; they are beautiful creations which, apart altogether from their literary contents, are lovely to look upon. … But the books thus produced are not dead things that require a concentration of the whole mind upon them. They live just as much as the paintings we saw were living. To pick up a book and begin reading from it meant also to perceive with the mind, in a way not possible on earth, the whole story as it was being told, whether it be history or science, or the arts. The book, once taken in the hand by the reader, instantly responds."

32-86

"We can study in libraries, which are very much like the libraries we have on earth…The time comes when you no longer want to go around in a regular library…We can then go to memory-bank reference libraries, which contain records of everything that has ever happened."

Miscellaneous Performing Arts

02-90

"We had a concert today and instead of going to a hall we fancied to be romantic, so we went by will-power to a beautiful cave that was hung with stalactites. We improvised seats and a stage and hung it full of flowers, and after the company were seated we made a curtain and all the performers went behind and we dressed ourselves in costumes we materialized to represent the gods and goddesses of Greece. I was Apollo, Elsie was Diana… We had fine music and lots of fun."

19-387

"We have no tickets of admission and no reserved seats, and the plays differ greatly from those enacted upon the earthly plane. Our plays are taken from real life, and there are countless tragedies and comedies enacted around you each day."

20-153

"We have artists and musicians, and in fact we have people following every art and profession which makes for beauty and happiness."

29-100

"The plays themselves are frequently vastly different from those that are customary upon the earth-plane. … We can go to see comedies where, I do assure you, the laughter is invariably much more hearty and voluminous than is ever to be heard in a theatre of the earth-plane. … We have witnessed grand historical pageants showing the greater moments of a nation, and we have seen, too, history as it really was, and not as it is often so fancifully written about in history books! But surely the most impressive, and, at the same time, interesting experience is to be present at one of these pageants where the original participants themselves re-enact the events in which they were concerned,"
