“…we need a level playing field and we need to go back to the realization that Teddy Roosevelt had: that we have to have a limit on the flow of money and that corporations are not people,”—Senator John McCain (R-AZ)
“You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She’s not perfect - you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break - her heart. So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyze and don’t expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she’s not there.”—Bob Marley
“So rumble, young musicians, rumble. Open your ears and open your hearts.
Don’t take yourself too seriously and take yourself as seriously as death itself.
Don’t worry. Worry your ass off.
Have ironclad confidence but doubt - it keeps you awake and alert.
Believe you are the baddest-ass in town and YOU SUCK - it keeps you honest.
Be able to keep two condictory ideas alive and well inside your heart and head at all times.
If it doesn’t drive you crazy it will make you strong.
Stay hard. Stay hungry. And stay alive.
And when you walk on stage tonight to bring the noise treat it like it’s all we have, and then remember it’s only Rock and Roll.”—Bruce Springsteen, keynote speech - SXSW 2012
