“Do what you have to, to be happy in this life. There is so much beauty.”

“Do what you have to, to be happy in this life. There is so much beauty.”

“The human heart has a way of making itself large again even after it’s been broken into a million pieces.”

“In a universe of ambiguity, this kind of certainty comes only once, and never again, no matter how many lifetimes you live.”

“It’s clear to me now that I have been moving toward you and you toward me for a long time. Though neither of us was aware of the other before we met, there was a kind of mindless certainty bumming blithely along beneath our ignorance that ensured we would come together. Like two solitary birds flying the great prairies by celestial reckoning, all of these years and lifetimes we have been moving toward one another.”

“The old dreams were good dreams; they didn’t work out but I’m glad I had them.”

“Analysis destroys wholes. Some things, magic things, are meant to stay whole. If you look at their pieces, they go away.”

“The heart never forgets, never gives up, the territory marked off for those who came before.”

“And in that moment, everything I knew to be true about myself up until then was gone. I was acting like another woman, yet I was more myself than ever before.”

“Complex things are easy to do. Simplicity’s the real challenge.”

“There are songs that come free from the blue-eyed grass, from the dust of a thousand country roads. This is one of them.”

“First you must have the images, then come the words.”

“So here I am walking around with another person inside of me. Though I think I put it better the day we parted when I said there is a third person we have created from the two of us. And I am stalked now by that other entity.”

“Such physical matters were nice, yet, to him, intelligence and passion born of living, the ability to move and be moved by subtleties of the mind and spirit, were what really counted.”

“I sometimes have the feeling you’ve been here a long time, more than one lifetime, and that you’ve dwelt in private places none of the rest of us has even dreamed about.”

“Anyone who can feel that way about a woman is worth lovin himself.”

“The reality is not exactly what the song started out to be, but it’s not a bad song.”

“…realities that kept the music silent, the dreams in a box.”

“Sometime I’m going to do an essay called ‘The Virtues of Amateurism’ for all of those people who wish they earned their living in the arts. The market kills more artistic people than anything else. It’s a world of safety out there, for most people. They want safety, the magazines and manufacturers give them safety, give them homogeneity, give them the familiar and comfortable, don’t challenge them.”

“Eventually, computers and robots will run things. Humans will manage those machines, but that doesn’t require courage or strength, or any characteristics like those. In fact, men are outliving their usefulness”
