But that which all may win;
Nor try to conquer any world
Except the one within.”

“Music has always been a matter of Energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel. I have always needed Fuel. I am a serious consumer.

“Just because I liked something at one point in time doesn’t mean I’ll always like it, or that I have to go on liking it at all points in time as an unthinking act of loyalty to who I am as a person, based solely on who I was as a person.

The only thing I am for sure is unsure, and this means I’m growing, and not stagnant or shrinking.”

– Jarod Kintz

“It was only a sunny smile, and little it cost in the giving, but like morning light it scattered the night and made the day worth living.”
