life: acoustic & amplified

poetry, quotes & thoughts about life


 You see, I want a lot. 

Perhaps I want everything 

the darkness that comes with every infinite fall 

and the shivering blaze of every step up.

So many live on and want nothing 

And are raised to the rank of prince 

By the slippery ease of their light judgments

But what you love to see are faces 

that do work and feel thirst. 

You love most of all those who need you 

as they need a crowbar or a hoe. 

You have not grown old, and it is not too late 

To dive into your increasing depths 

where life calmly gives out its own secret.


The Book of Hours by Rainer Maria Rilke

  On this day of your life I believe God wants you to know…
…that life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

You won’t find glory at the center of safety, but at its edge. You won’t find love at a place where you are covered, but in the space where you are naked.

You gotta take some risks. You have to not only pick up the dice, but roll ’em. So go ahead, take the gamble.

You have nothing to lose except the chance to win. 

Life is not long enough to spend it on the sidelines. And you will not have to think but a second to know exactly why you received this message today.


    – Neale Donald Walsh
