• Man is the only animal for whom his own existence is a problem which he has to solve. ~Erich Fromm

  • "There is no use in trying," said Alice; "One can't believe impossible things." "I dare say you haven't had much practice," said the queen. "When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast." ~Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carrol

  • Endless invention, endless experiment, Brings knowledge of motion, but not of stillness; Knowledge of speech, but not of silence; Knowledge of words, and ignorance of the Word; Where is the Life we have lost in living? Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? ~T.S. Eliot~ From “Choruses from the Rock”

  • If you were music, I would listen to you ceaselessly And my low spirits would brighten up. If you were a star, I would gaze by the window till dawn, And peace would enter my soul. ~Anna Akhmatova, From March Elegies

  • Now - here is my secret. I tell it to you with an openness of heart that I doubt I will ever achieve again, so I pray that you are in a quiet room as you hear these words. My secret is that I need God - that I am sick and can no longer make it alone. I need God to help me give, because I no longer seem to be capable of giving; to help me be kind, as I no longer seem capable of kindness; to help me love, as I seem beyond being able to love. ~Douglas Coupland~

In My Ear

  • Jesus was a lover. He had a fire in His eyes that could burn away excuses, cremate your alibis. He had a gaze that would expose to you all the subtle lies that your soul permits your heart to tell concerning all that it denies. Don Chaffer "Against the Window Pane"

  • please don’t look at me that way / you will never be all by yourself all by yourself / and you will never be the same / you will never be the same… Lori Chaffer "make no protest"

  • Cause when we're torn apart/ Shattered and scarred/ Love has the grace to save us Sara Evans "Saints and Angels"

  • It's when you cry just a little but you laugh in the middle that you've made it. ~Jason Mraz, Tonight (Not Again)

  • Well I wish that you could see me when I’m flying in my dreams The way I laugh there way up high/The way I look when I fly/The way I live/The way I fly ~Patty Griffin, Chief

music that inspires me
