It's no coincidence. I play that song around you so maybe you'll actually listen to the lyrics for once and know how I feel.

We help people when big things happen to them, when you see them getting hit by a car, when a brother or a sister or a father or a mother dies, we're there for them because we can see that death kills more than the person it takes. And yet, the people around us who die a little all the time, moment by moment, who require the least help, the smallest sacrifice, are the ones we ignore completely.
21 Suggestions for Success.

  1. Marry the right person. This one decision will determine 90% of your happiness or misery.
  2. Work at something you enjoy and that’s worthy of your time and talent.
  3. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.
  4. Become the most positive and enthusiastic person you know.
  5. Be forgiving of yourself and others.
  6. Be generous.
  7. Have a grateful heart.
  8. Persistence, persistence, persistence.
  9. Discipline yourself to save money on even the most modest salary.
  10. Treat everyone you meet like you want to be treated
  11. Commit yourself to constant improvement.
  12. Commit yourself to quality.
  13. Understand that happiness is not based on possessions, power or prestige, but on relationships with people you love and respect.
  14. Be loyal.
  15. Be honest.
  16. Be a self-starter.
  17. Be decisive even if it means you’ll sometimes be wrong.
  18. Stop blaming others. Take responsibility for every area of your life.
  19. Be bold and courageous. When you look back on your life, you’ll regret the things you didn’t do more than the ones you did.
  20. Take good care of those you love.
  21. Don’t do anything that wouldn’t make your Mom proud.

But nothing is wasted. There's no song you can listen to, no person you can speak to, no moment it takes to see things as they are that doesn't teach you something.

You need everything you know.

“You don’t have to be a “person of influence” to be influential. In fact, the most influential people in my life are probably not even aware of the things they’ve taught me.”
Scott Adams

“If you end up with a boring miserable life because you listened to your mom, your dad, your teacher, your priest, or some guy on television telling you how to do your shit, then you deserve it.”
Frank Zappa

“beautiful things come out of horrible situations, i know for a fact. out of sadness you get a newfound wisdom on how the world can look with a haze of gray clouds, how people can be senseless, how you can see the whole universe in a whole new way. and that may be hard to handle, hard to cope, hard to accept, but it is so damn beautiful if you really take the chance to realize. out of anger you can feel your heart race, with every beat it is shaking your whole being and not only the heavy steps you take. it is when you, your whole self, and some power are telling you that you are alive. and that is amazing at every angle. out of anything there is something in there that makes it incredible, something that makes it shine. whatever you feel is potent and it is such a blessing to be able to feel what you feel. you just have to think about it.”

“Everyone has talent. What’s rare is the courage to follow it to the dark places where it leads.”
Erica Jong

no matter who you are, you are a product of love. made and tailored, a custom glove. you were designed with a purpose in mind. drafted and crafted to the specifications of the world, you are the breeze in sails unfurled. you make the world move, not this concept they call gravity. only you fit the particular outline of a unique cavity. so never lose sight of your own importance. there’s no need for you to search for more hints, because i am telling you incontestably; no matter what, you matter to me.

“ From the outside looking in, you can’t understand it. From the inside looking out, you can’t explain it.

“ Ever since happiness heard your name, it has been running through the streets trying to find you.
Hafiz of Persia

"They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself." - Andy Warhol

But you don't
Have to hold your head
Higher than your heart

"….do stuff that average people don’t understand, because those are the only good things." - Andy Warhol

"Sometimes people don’t want to hear the truth because they don’t want their illusions destroyed." - Friedrich Nietzsche

E aí eu te pergunto, e se eu quiser viver com as minhas illusions? Acho que eu até seria mais feliz... Não entendo essa necessidade de saber a verdade. Viver aquilo que voce quer é tão melhor. Mesmo que depois voce descruba que aquilo não era nada do que voce achava que era. Foi bom enquanto durou não?

"The difference between false memories and true ones is the same as for jewels: it is always the false ones that look the most real, the most brilliant." - Salvador Dali

"there is a reason you can’t find true love on a television show.

because it grows best in the quiet timeswhen there are no cameras, no prying eyes, no people there to watch it.

It grows in the slow breaths and long silences of a car ridein the short distance between his shoulder and mine.

Real love is not a fairy tale.It is not perfect.It is flawed and difficultit hurts like hell sometimes.

Real love takes weeks and months and years to become.It knows the story behind the scars on your ribcage,your greatest fear,and what you looked liked at seven.

True love isn’t a contest.it’s the most unforced and natural of all life’s possibilities.It’s what happens when you let go of precedents and expectationsand reveal all of yourself, privately and wholly to another soul.

Save tv shows for design contests and cook offs, let love alone."
