“They call themselves believers and thereby signify that they are pilgrims, strangers and aliens in the world. Indeed, a staff in the hand does not identify a pilgrim as definitely as calling oneself a believer publicly testifies that one is on a journey, because faith simply means: What I am seeking is not here, and for that very reason I believe it. Faith expressly signifies the deep, strong, blessed restlessness that drives the believer so that he cannot settle down at rest in this world, and therefore the person who has settled down completely at rest has also ceased to be a believer, because a believer cannot sit still as one sits with a pilgrim's staff in one's hand – a believer travels forward”
Søren Kierkegaard

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before and, more importantly, you're Doing Something. So that's my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody's ever made before. Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life. Whatever it is you're scared of doing, Do it. Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”
Neil Gaiman

Cheb i Sabbah: As I've said more than once, (late great jazz trumpeter) Don Cherry was one of my mentors, having met him when I was in The Living Theater, and then ending up actually performing with him, and he was the first one to really conceive that a DJ could be a part of a band so I used to perform with him live as a DJ and I ended up also being his manager. He always said that music is a gift given to you and that's why you have to share it. But it's only a gift given to you - you're not doing much, you're doing something that already exists, but you are just putting you're own interpretation on it, you are modifying it with your own two cents, you are the conduit for this blessing that has been given to you.

From the crane we learn grace and self-control. The snake teaches us suppleness and rhythmic endurance. The praying mantis teaches us speed and patience. From the tiger, tenacity and power, and from the dragon we learn to ride the wind

Scheherezade: He said the world was an inferno full of darkness and evil, and that there were only two ways of dealing with it. The first was easy and wrong: to accept it and become part of it. The second way was harder and right: you fight it, and recognise those who aren't evil, and help them endure.
