    The Royal Library-Music Collection

    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    CT64,

    Thank you for your super-sleuthing to find that gem of a site.
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    Hey there Corno - yeah it is VAST so if you find something interesting, bookmark it (trust me, I didn't and it took me ages to back trace my e-steps to find it again).

    I particularly love the Manuscripts section, especially the wonderful and sadly neglected "Strauss of the North" Danish composer H.C. Lumbye. His Copenhagen Railway Steam Gallop (Københavns Jernbane Damp Galop) is just marvellous!! (and what a beautiful manuscript hand he had).
