"I am very proud of The Saints and Im very glad that Ive been associated with them all these years, but the next record is the best record... has to be the philosophy for any band that remains even halfway decent or vibrant, and that is kind of where my heads at."

"Who cares about the clouds when were together? Just sing a song and bring the sunny weather."

John M Frame Quotes

"There is a circularity here I do not doubt. I am defending the Bible by the Bible. Circularity of a kind is unavoidable when one seeks to defend an ultimate standard of truth, for ones defense must itself be accountable to that standard."

Jonathan Evison Quotes

"We are born haunted, he said, his voice weak, but still clear. Haunted by our fathers and mothers and daughters, and by people we dont remember. We are haunted by otherness, by the path not taken, by the life unlived. We are haunted by the changing winds and the ebbing tides of history. And even as our own flame burns brightest, we are haunted by the embers of the first dying fire. But mostly, said Lord Jim, we are haunted by ourselves."

Wynton Marsalis Quotes

"Because the blues is the basis of most American music in the 20th century. Its a 12-bar form thats played by jazz, bluegrass and country musicians. It has a rhythmic vocabulary thats been used by rock n roll. Its related to spirituals, and even the American fiddle tradition."

Quotes About Chattel

"At this point we can finally see whats really at stake in our peculiar habit of defining ourselves simultaneously as master and slave, reduplicating the most brutal aspects of the ancient household in our very concept of ourselves, as masters of our freedoms, or as owners of our very selves. It is the only way that we can imagine ourselves as completely isolated beings. There is a direct line from the new Roman conception of liberty – not as the ability to form mutual relationships with others, but as the kind of absolute power of "use and abuse" over the conquered chattel who make up the bulk of a wealthy Roman mans household – to the strange fantasies of liberal philosophers like Hobbes, Locke, and Smith, about the origins of human society in some collection of thirty- or forty-year-old males who seem to have sprung from the earth fully formed, then have to decide whether to kill each other or begin to swap beaver pelts." - Author: David Graeber

Quotes About Vann

"A gyermekkor egyik buktatója, hogy vannak dolgok, amelyeket nem értünk, csak érzünk. Mire az agyunk képessé válik ezek megértésére, a szívünkön ejtett sebek már túl mélyek." - Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón

Quotes About Subscription

"Washington, like most scholarly Virginians of his time, was a Deist... Contemporary evidence shows that in mature life Washington was a Deist, and did not commune, which is quite consistent with his being a vestryman. In England, where vestries have secular functions, it is not unusual for Unitarians to vestrymen, there being no doctrinal subscription required for that office. Washingtons letters during the Revolution occasionally indicate his recognition of the hand of Providence in notable public events, but in the thousands of his letters I have never been able to find the name of Christ or any reference to him.{Conway was employed to edit Washingtons letters}" - Author: Washington

Quotes About Haystack

"People often ask themselves the right questions. Where they fail is in answering the questions they ask themselves, and even there they do not fail by much. A single avenue of reasoning followed to its logical conclusion would bring them straight home to the truth. But they stop just short of it, over and over again. When they have only to reach out and grasp the idea that would explain everything, they decide that the search is hopeless. The search is never hopeless. There is no haystack so large that the needle in it cannot be found. But it takes time, it takes humility and a serious reason for searching." - Author: William Maxwell

Quotes About Office Secretaries

"Thirty- eight years old and he was finished. He sipped at the coffee and remembered where he had gone wrong -- or right. Hed simply gotten tired -- of the insurance game, of the small offices and high glass partitions, the clients; hed simply gotten tired of cheating on his wife, of squeezing secretaries in the elevator and in the halls;hed gotten tired of Christmas parties and New Years parties and birthdays, and payments on new cars and furniture payments -- light, gas, water -- the whole bleeding complex of necessities.Hed gotten tired and quit, thats all. The divorce came soon enough and the drinking came soon enough, and suddenly he was out of it. He had nothing, and he found out that having nothing was difficult too. It was another type of burden. If only there were some gentler road in between. It seemed a man only had two choices -- get in on the hustle or be a bum." - Author: Charles Bukowski

Quotes About Unhappy Marriages

"Chumps always make the best husbands. When you marry, Sally, grab a chump. Tap his head first, and if it rings solid, dont hesitate. All the unhappy marriages come from husbands having brains. What good are brains to a man? They only unsettle him." - Author: P.G. Wodehouse
