Favorite Quote:
“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”
― William W. Purkey

I also like this quote by Gnarls Barkley:
"You are the best. You are the worst. You are average. Your love is a part of you. You try to give it away because you cannot bear its radiance, but you cannot separate it from yourself. To understand your fellow humans, you must understand why you give them your love. You must realize that hate is but a crime-ridden subdivision of love. You must reclaim what you never lost. You must take leave of your sanity, and yet be fully responsible for your actions." -Gnarls Barkley, in a letter to the legendary rock critic Lester Bangs

Who is the man who walks through fertile fields,

with his gun pressed against the brow of the farmer’s son,

 and orders him to make life flow from the dirt? 


What is red? It is the colour of death, which spatters the fields like the poppy blossom for which it was spilt.
Green is the income from the outcome which justifies the means

And white, white is the colour of the stars in their eyes
Who are we? We are the family held to ransom
Who is the man who makes death from a flower?
He is my father




He is blameless
