Utah Phillips Quotes

"Frying-Pan Jack and I were in that camp, thats where he said to me, hed been tramping since 1927, I told myself in 27, if I cannot dictate the conditions of my labor, I will henceforth cease to work. You dont have to go to college to figure these things out, no sir. He said, I learned when I was young that the only true life I had was the life of my brain. But if its true that the only real life I had was the life of my brain, what sense does it make to hand that brain to someone for eight hours a day, for their particular use, on the presumption that at the end of the day they will give it back in an unmutilated condition? Fat chance!"

Quotes About Being Happy In Love Tumblr

"I have seen conversations that I had three years ago, when I was young, in love, and naive. Ive grown a lot since those days. I now know that love isnt just that abstract feeling, because there are so many other sides to it. Sometimes you learn that to truly love someone you have to just support them as a person, and step out of their view finder. Be their friend and nothing else. Sometimes you learn to walk away and find what you need. You learn you knew nothing and thats when you grow up and change your ways. There may be no fairy take endings, but that is okay, because love is much more real than that. So much less superficial." - Author: Jennifer Megan Varnadore

Sage asked. Ugh!"Very close," I said, tilting my head to one side,"Incestuous,actually. Hes a fabulous kisser." - Author: Kieran Scott
