Louis Armstrong’s “C’Est Si Bon.”
Does it trouble your mind the way you trouble mine?
The National’s “Exile Vilify.”
"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style."
"Keep a little fire burning; however small, however hidden."
"I will take the sun in my mouth
and leap into the ripe air
with closed eyes
to dash against darkness"
"True love is born from understanding."
"Our own life has to be our message."
"Somewhere behind your smile, was a fire burning me alive."
"When you say to a woman or a man, ‘I love you,’ you are simply saying, ‘I cannot be deceived by your body, I have seen you, the bodiless you. I have seen your inner most core, the core that is Divine.’"
