You really want to get a record deal, then you want to get a gold record, and then the first really big tour, and every time you get to those points, it's empty. You have to be happy with where you are at the exact moment. There's only one time, and it's now. Now is a good time. It always is. The future's really heavy. The past is even heavier. Don't drag it with you. You gotta live.
Jordy Birch, from an interview with the band Pure
There are only four questions of value in life:
What is sacred,
Of what is the spirit made,
What is worth living for,
What is worth dying for.
The answer to each is the same. Only love.
Don Juan DeMarco
Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher than you think.
Those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
George Bernard Shaw
Philosophy lives in words, but truth and fact well up into our lives in ways that exceed verbal formulation. There is in the living act of perception always something that glimmers and twinkles and will not be caught, and for which reflection comes too late.
