THOUGHTS FOR THE DAY

“We’ve got this gift of live, but love is like a precious plant. You can’t just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it’s going to get on by itself. You’ve got to keep watering it. You’ve got to really look after it and nurture it.”
–John Lennon

“Adult life is dealing with an enormous amount of questions that don’t have answers. So I let the mystery settle into my music.”
–Bruce Springsteen

“I felt that the elegance of pop music was that it was reflective: we were holding up a mirror to our audience and reflecting them philosophically and spiritually, rather than just reflecting society or something called ‘rock and roll.'”
–Pete Townshend
