Additional Information: This quote by Robert Gupta, violinist with the LA Philharmonic, means that music was invented as a way to express our emotions, a way to use our creativity to manifest what is inside of us into something external. This power of music to shape our emotions into a beautiful expression can provide solace even to someone with severe mental illness, according to Gupta. The quote is from Gupta's TED Talk about a lesson he learned from a schizophrenic musician. Watch the full TED Talk here: Robert Gupta - Music Is Medicine, Music Is Sanity
