    And passing nature’s bounds, was something more.” ~ Charles Churchill

    Each in his part as best he could,
    We played it through as the author planned.” ~ Alan Seeger

I can remember the quality of the morning on which I read. It was a sunlit morning in January, a Saturday morning, cold, high, empty. I sat in a rectangle of sunlight, near the grate of the floor heater in the yellow bedroom. And as I read, I became aware of warmth and comfort and optimism.

For that I admire Liverpool more than anything.” ~ Johan Cruijff

  55. “These days I don’t look to other people with the objective of trying to steal their licks, although I’ve got no objections to stealing them if that seems like a good idea.

I don’t know if I could ever get any of that stuff together. Sometimes I think I should work at the guitar more.” ~ David Gilmour

But, the red light came cheerily towards him from the windows; figures passed and repassed there; and the hum and murmur of voices greeted his ear sweetly.” ~ Charles Dickens
