Be Awake

- Jeff Buckley

Precious Time

Choices





You've got a lot of choices.  If getting out of bed in the morning is a chore and you're not smiling on a regular basis, try another choice.

Words


If you ever doubt the power of language, listen more closely.
Witness the magic the first time someone whispers "i love you."
Watch a woman put on head phones, close her eyes, and have her life changed by a lyric.
See a bad moment flipped upside down by a well timed joke.
Words propel us, empower us, make us human and more than human.
We constantly struggle to say what we mean and mean what we say. To "wrestle with words and meanings." that's what t.s. eliot calls it.
But as we whisper and shout, stutter and spin, we create order out of the chaos around us.
We are built of words, and we live by them, too.

One Day...

“You know, one day you look at a person
and see something more than you did the day before,
like a switch has been flickered somewhere,
and the person who was just your friend
is suddenly the only person
you can ever imagine yourself" with.”

Journey


At times the world may seem an unfriendly and sinister place, but believe that there is much more good in it than bad. All you have to do is look hard enough. And what might seem to be a series of unfortunate events may in fact be the first steps of a journey. - Lemony Snicket

Triumph over all


"I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death." 
— Robert Fulghum

The World


The world is a dangerous place. Not because of those who do evil, 
but because of those who look on and do nothing.
- Albert Einstein

Moments



There are moments of such pure, sublime, unparalleled perfection that they will force you to close your eyes and hold on to them as best you can. Life is a series of these moments. Everything else is just waiting for them.
-Iain Thomas

Other Half




"According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate parts, condemning them to spend their lives in search of their other halves."

- Plato, The Symposium
