Words of Another

I find solace in the words and lyrics of other…

 
…Words that simply hit me in a way that I can’t describe.  Song lyrics reach deep within and bring me at ease in the midst of chaos.  Oftentimes the words of another calm me; bringing me back to reality. While I can often put my own words down onto paper; the words of another say exactly what I feel or think… 
 
The power of  written words can be so influential… completely honest and sincere.  Sometimes my own words just don’t suffice in expressing true sentiments in some situations…
 
 
Here my friends, are a ew of my favorites…
 
“You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” — Dr. Seuss
 
 “We dance for laughter, we dance for tears, we dance for madness, we dance for fears, we dance for hopes, we dance for screams, we are the dancers, we create the dreams.”
 

“Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
And you are young and life is long and there is time to kill today. And then one day you find ten years have got behind you.  No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun” ~ Time by Pink Floyd
” Long you live and high you fly
smiles you’ll give and tears you’ll cry
all you touch and all you see
Is all your life will ever be”  ~ Breathe by Pink Floyd

“We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.” — Dr. Seuss

“Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.”  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
  
“Be true to your work, your word, and your friend.”  ~Henry David Thoreau
 
“I am just a raindrop that accelerates without control
Losing bits and pieces in descent ’til I’m no longer whole
I am just another shooting star above that you might see
Until I have your full attention I’ll be anything but me”  ~Anything But Me by Phish

“May the journey always be your reward in life…”  ~ Author unknown 

“All I have seen teaches me to trust the creator for all I have not seen.”  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can’t practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage.”  ~ Maya Angelou
 
“I want to be remembered as the girl who always smiles even when her heart is broken, and the one that could always brighten up your day even if she couldn’t brighten her own.  – author unknown

 “…I am just a satellite, high above the atmosphere; Bouncing every thing you say to someone who was meant to hear…”         ~ Anything But Me, Phish

“Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and cannot remain silent” ~Victor Hugo

“Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.” — Dr. Seuss

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.” — Dr. Seuss

“…I was taught a month ago, to bide my time and take it slow…But then I learned just yesterday, to rush and never waste the day…” ~ Character Zero, Phish

 …Within your heart keep one still, silent spot where dreams may go…

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
— Dr. Seuss
 
You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…”   — Dr. Seuss (Oh, the Places You’ll Go!)

 

“…Turns out not where but who you’re with that really matters…”  ~ Dave Matthews Band

“Life has many doors that can be opened and closed, what you make of your life depends on the doors you choose to close and doors you choose to open…”

We learn about each other and from each other; sharing our words, thoughts and stories.
