Earth teach me to forget myself as melted snow forgets its life. Earth teach me resignation as the leaves which die in the fall. Earth teach me courage as the tree which stands all alone. Earth teach me regeneration as the seed which rises in the spring.

If you're serious, you really understand that it's important that you laugh as much as possible and admit that you're the funniest person you ever met. You have to laugh. Admit that you're funny. Otherwise, you die in solemnity.
Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh.
George Bernard Shaw
One has to pay dearly for immortality; one has to die several times while one is still alive.
I consider myself a poet first and a musician second. I live like a poet and I'll die like a poet.

I don't believe in a personal god. It's good to give thanks, whether or not there's a god. There's no reason not to live life to the fullest. Morality is all the more important for people who don't expect to get a piece of celestial candy after they die.
William T. Vollmann
