When the time comes to settle down,
Who's to blame if you're not around?

When I was young it seems that life was so
Wonderful, a miracle, so beautiful, magical
And all the birds in the trees, they be singing so
Happily, whole joyfully,
Oh, playfully watching me

And then they sent me away to teach me how to be
Sensible, logical,
Responsible, practical

And then they showed me a world where I could be so
Dependable, clinical,
Oh intellectual, cynical

There are times when all the world's asleep
The questions runs so deep
For such a simple man

Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned?
I know it sounds absurd,
Please tell me who I am
- Supertramp

The secret to life is learning to enjoy the passage of time
- James Taylor

Life is what happens when you're busy making other plans
- John Lennon

It's easier to try
Than to prove it can't be done
And it's easier to stay
Than to turn around and run
- Moody Blues


To be awake is to be alive. I have never yet met a man who was quite awake. How could I have looked him in the face?
- Henry David Thoreau

It is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue, or so to make a few objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere and medium through which we look, which morally we can do. To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts.
- Henry David Thoreau
