NUMBER:2427
AUTHOR:Sir Thomas Browne (1605–1682)
QUOTATION:There is music in the beauty, and the silent note which Cupid strikes, far sweeter than the sound of an instrument; for there is music wherever there is harmony, order, or proportion; and thus far we may maintain the music of the spheres. 1

Note 1.
Oh, could you view the melody
Of every grace
And music of her face.
