William Arthur Ward
The things that make me happiest in the whole world are going on the occasional picnic, either with my children or with my partner; big family gatherings; and being able to go to the grocery store - if I can get those things in, I'm doing good.
All men's miseries derive from not being able to sit in a quiet room alone.
I know that I'm here because of the grace of God. But I also know that I've been given this second chance for a specific reason, and that is to bring love to the world again through the voice of my music, and I'm so honored to be able to do it. I'm so blessed that God has chosen me to do that.
When I got into music, I wanted to learn guitar just enough to be able to write songs. I wanted to be able to express myself.

An education isn't how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know. It's being able to differentiate between what you know and what you don't.
It is sad not to love, but it is much sadder not to be able to love.
Miguel de Unamuno

God can cause opportunity to find you. He has unexpected blessings where you suddenly meet the right person, or suddenly your health improves, or suddenly you're able to pay off your house. That's God shifting things in your favor.
We don't create a fantasy world to escape reality. We create it to be able to stay.
To be able to love and live in freedom means to be able to make godly decisions. To make godly decisions we have to surrender our egos and all the falsity and shame that goes with it.
We have enslaved the rest of the animal creation, and have treated our distant cousins in fur and feathers so badly that beyond doubt, if they were able to formulate a religion, they would depict the Devil in human form.
William Ralph Inge
It's not like I was trying to be sexy but I had to get fit because I had to be able to do stunts.
