Life is a Symphony

I saw this life inspiring message inside a popular gift shop, printed on one of their products...

"Life is a symphony of incredible music. It has its own soprano, tenor and bass. No matter how high or low the notes, keep in tune with God and you'll never go off the key in the beautiful music of life."
