Viewing: Simplicity - View All Posts

LIGHTHOUSES 



"Lighthouses are more useful than churches."
—Benjamin Franklin

"Lighthouses don’t go running all over an island
looking for boats to save. They just stand there shining."
—Anne Lamott

"There's a lighthouse in a harbor, shining faithfully
Pouring it's light out across the water
For this sinking soul to see
That someone out there still believes in me."
—Garth Brooks

THREE FROM BRUCE LEE 


"Do not be tense, just be ready, not thinking but not dreaming,
not being set but being flexible. It is being wholly and quietly alive,
aware and alert, ready for whatever may come."

"Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless,
and add what is specifically your own."

"It is merely simplicity; the ability to express the utmost
with the minimum."

THE EXPERTS AGREE 



"Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future. Concentrate the mind on the present moment, and do your work with mastery. Like the moon, come out from behind the clouds, and shine."
~Buddha

"Happiness is not a memory but a reality. Reality is neither past nor future but only now. NOW is the greatest time there ever was."
~Nicholas Payton

"Yesterday I was a dog. Today I'm a dog. Tomorrow I'll probably still be a dog. So why not just be happy?"
~Snoopy

WHAT MUSIC IS FOR ~ Bootsy Collins 



When I was coming up, we weren't trying to get a hit or to get paid, we were just trying to do our thing. Truth is, the only thing we really wanted was to get out there and get recognized for our originality.

After that happened, we said 'OK, all right, so now what? What's it really all about?' Well, at the end of the day, what it all boils down to is this: we're all riding on the same boat. And we have to learn how to deal with each other, to get along.

So that's what music is for — to bring us together.
