  • (@CSLCHSnMore) I have no use for cranks who despise music, because it is a gift of God. Music drives away the Devil & makes people joyful; they forget thereby all wrath, arrogance, and the like. Next after theology, I give to music the highest place and the greatest honor. Martin Luther. Tweet.
