Music Makes Joy More Joyful

How is it that music can, without words, evoke our laughter, our fears, our highest aspirations?  Joy is more joyful, given a tune.  Jane Swan (1925-2010)  Quoted in Music Lovers Quotations, edited by Helen Exley.

Jane Swan taught history at West Chester University in Pennsylvania and served as Director of the Women’s Center there. She earned her doctorate in Russian history from the University of Pennsylvania.
