If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem.
But I arise in the morning, torn between a desire to improve the world
and a desire to enjoy the world.
This makes it hard to plan the day.
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent.
It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.
Music is a total constant.
That's why we have such a strong visceral connection to it, you know?
Because a song can take you back instantly
to a moment, or a place, or even a person.
No matter what else has changed in you or the world
that one song stays the same, just like that moment.
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it. -Aristotle
This is how it works.
You're young until you're not.
You love until you don't.
You try until you can't.
You laugh until you cry. You cry until you laugh.
and everyone must breathe, until their dying breath.
No matter how upside down it all may temporarily appear,
we will have no fear because we know this secret:
life is crazily in love with us;
wildly and innocently in love with us.
The universe always gives us exactly what we need,
exactly when we need it.
