Quotes

“Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” -Berthold Auerbach

A man is a critic when he cannot be an artist, in the same way that a man becomes an informer when he cannot be a soldier.
-Gustave Flaubert

Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, an hour, a day, or even a year but, eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit however, it lasts forever. -Lance Armstrong

Do or Die.

FEAR IS THE MINDKILLER. -Jackal & Hyde

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the
dusty recesses of their minds wake up in the day to find that it was vanity..but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act out their dream with open eyes, to make it possible. -Lieutenant Colonel T.E. Lawrence

All things are possible if you believe.
Mark 9:23

“If we communicated with something like music, we would never be misunderstood, because there is nothing in music to understand…… But until we find this new way of speaking, until we can find a nonapproximate vocabulary, nonsense words are the best thing we’ve got.” -Jonathan Safran Foer

“make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty.”
— Jon Krakauer (Into the Wild)

The truth will set you free.

“My passionate sense of social justice and social responsibility has
always contrasted oddly with my pronounced lack of need for direct contact with other human beings and human communities. I am truly a ‘lone traveler’ and have never belonged to my country, my home, my friends, or even my immediate family, with my whole heart; in the face of all these ties, I have never lost a sense of distance and a need for solitude…”
-Albert Einstein
