Motivation Monday #3

Music can be a great motivator for me, when I'm writing, when I'm walking, when I'm just trying to get through the day to day. Here are some quotes from bookish quotes from bookish folks:
I think the one from Lady Gaga is my favorite...

“Without music, life would be a mistake.”
Friedrich Nietzsche, Twilight of the Idols 

 “If I can't dance to it, it's not my revolution.”
Emma Goldman

 “One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.”
Bob Marley

 “If music be the food of love, play on,
Give me excess of it; that surfeiting,
The appetite may sicken, and so die.”
William Shakespeare, Twelfth Night 

 the past is only the future with the lights on.”
Blink-182, Blink 182 

 “We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams.”
Arthur O'Shaughnessy, Poems of Arthur O'Shaughnessy

“Life is for the living.
Death is for the dead.
Let life be like music.
And death a note unsaid.”
Langston Hughes, The Collected Poems 

   “The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats...”
Albert Schweitzer

 “The only truth is music.”
Jack Kerouac

 “I had a boyfriend who told me I’d never succeed, never be nominated for a Grammy, never have a hit song, and that he hoped I’d fail. I said to him, ‘Someday, when we’re not together, you won’t be able to order a cup of coffee at the fucking deli without hearing or seeing me.”
Lady Gaga

So cold

I have never been this cold before, inside and out. It's hard to think, it's hard to process a thought. There's no physical heat...
