Many men are melancholy by hearing music, but it is a pleasing melancholy that it causeth; and therefore, to such as are discontent, in woe, fear, sorrow, or dejected, it is a most present remedy; it expels cares, alters their grieved minds, and easeth in an instant. (from the 1621 edition of 'The Anatomy of Melancholy') - Robert Burton

Let the burden never be so heavy; love makes it light. - Robert Burton
