"Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest,
whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure,
whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good

"Conclusions arrived at through reasoning have very little or no
influence in altering the course of our lives."

"Intent is not a thought, or an object, or a wish. Intent is what
can make a man succeed when his thoughts tell him that he is
defeated. Intent is what sends a shaman through a wall, through space, to infinity."

"All paths are the same: they lead nowhere. However, a path
without a heart is never enjoyable. On the other hand, a path with heart is easyÚit does not make a warrior work at liking it; it makes for a joyful journey; as long as a man follows it, he is one with it."
-Carlos Castaneda

"Music makes me high on stage, and that's the truth. It's like being almost addicted to music."

"Music makes me high on stage, and that's the truth. It's like being almost addicted to music."

"Music is the most important thing. I'm thinking of my future. There has to be something new, and I want to be part of it. I want to lead an orchestra with excellent musicians. I want to play music which draws pictures of the world and its space. Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music."

"The problem with religion is they killed Jesus off too soon. He was getting things together quite nicely and then they killed him. Then they took the best things that he had to say and twisted and changed them for their own benefit and gain. That's why religion for the most part is so much hogwash."

"If I'm free, it's because I'm always running."

"John was sparked off by rhythms but more and more he tended to set his own poetry, or often simply disconnect thoughts, to music. When he woke up at seven o'clock one morning and couldn't get back to sleep, he found the words "pools of sorrow, waves of joy" going through his head. He got up and wrote them out, writing about ten lines in all which eventually became Across the Universe. I was just sitting, trying to think of a song, and I thought of myself sitting there, doing nothing and going nowhere. Once I'd thought of that, it was easy. It all came out. No, I remember now, I'd actually stopped trying to think of something. Nothing would come. ...and went for a lie down, having given up. Then I thought of myself as Nowhere Man - sitting in his nowhere land."
-John Lennon

"I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may
learn how to do it."
