David Byrne // "I sense the world might be more dreamlike, metaphorical, and poetic than we currently believe... I wouldn't be surprised if poetry...in the sense of a world filled with metaphor, rhyme, and recurring patterns, shapes and designs...is how the world works. The world isn't logical, it's a song."
Edith Sitwell // "My personal hobbies are reading, listening to music, and silence."
Charles Bukowski // "Understand me...I do not have time for things that have no soul."
Bertrand Russell // "Remember your humanity, and forget the rest."
Virginia Woolf // "Habits and customs are a convenience devised for the support of timid natures who dare not allow their souls play free."
Bob Dylan // "And it dawned on me that I might have to change my inner thought patterns...that I would have to start believing in possibilities that I wouldn't have allowed before, that I had been closing my creativity down to a very narrow, controllable scale...that things had become too familiar and I might have to disorient myself."
Waris Ahluwalia // "I don't think men get enough flowers. A deeper pink or red peonies are my favorite. But I'll take anything, really."
Jimi Hendrix // "What’s good or bad doesn’t matter to me; what does matter is feeling and not feeling. If only people would...think in terms of feeling... You’ve got to know much more than just the technicalities of notes; you’ve got to know what goes between the notes."
Joan Didion // "People with self-respect exhibit a certain toughness, a kind of moral nerve; they display what was once called character...character—the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life."
