Quote of the Day!

1. That that is, is.

March 30th, 2011

This quote was told to me by my best friend, Teddy Jones. What i take from it, is that what is already set, is set. There is no changing it. That that is, is. But what ISN’T already set, is yours for the creating. That that hasn’t, can still be. What do you see with what is, and what isn’t?

2. Creativity is the spark of life

This was said to me by Ryan Patton. In one of his speeches to the band, he used this to metaphorically ask us: Would we rather stay where we are, consistent but good, but have nothing to show for it, or would we like to fight. Sometimes with setbacks, and no guarantees, but if we succeed, damn, we’ve got something to show for it.

10.  Maybe I am a dreamer

Searching for something to hold

But dreams are the pathways to hope i’m told

And hope warms the heart that is cold.

Maybe i’m chasing rainbows

In search of make believe gold

Maybe i’m acting too childish

Or maybe i’m acting too old.

Love changes people

Changes their lives through and through

I have a dream, it’s a dream about you

Tell me, do you have one too?

So, maybe I am a dreamer

And maybe my dream won’t come true

But dreams are the pathways to hope i’m told

So what more can this dreamer do?

Dreams are the pathways to hope i’m told

So what more can this dreamer do?

Dreams are calling like bells in the distance
We were dreamers not so long ago
But one by one we all had to grow up
When it seems the magic’s slipped away
We find it all again on Christmas day

Believe in what your heart is saying
Hear the melody that’s playing
There’s no time to waste
There’s so much to celebrate
Believe in what you feel inside
And give your dreams the wings to fly
You have everything you need
If you just believe

Trains move quickly to their journey’s end
Destinations are where we begin again
Ships go sailing far across the sea
Trusting starlight to get where they need to be
When it seems that we have lost our way
We find ourselves again on Christmas day

Believe in what your heart is saying
Hear the melody that’s playing
There’s no time to waste
There’s so much to celebrate
Believe in what you feel inside
And give your dreams the wings to fly
You have everything you need
If you just believe

Just believe
