If you aren't in over your head, how do you know how tall you are?
T. S. Eliot
No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow.
He that will believe only what he can fully comprehend must have a long head or a very short creed.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
Sometimes, you just have to clear your head and get out to see other things. It is very important to be nourished. I love to go to museums and galleries, I like to see theatre, film, dance - anything creative. It doesn't promise you inspiration, but it nourishes your creative soul, and that's good.
No one is an artist unless he carries his picture in his head before painting it, and is sure of his method and composition.
I really love to ride my motorcycle. When I want to just get away and be by myself and clear my head, that's what I do.
It is better to have a lion at the head of an army of sheep, than a sheep at the head of an army of lions.
There are days when solitude is a heady wine that intoxicates you with freedom, others when it is a bitter tonic, and still others when it is a poison that makes you beat your head against the wall.
Sidonie Gabrielle Colette
The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just on the body, but the soul.
I don't know why, but rain comes into my head the minute I think of my childhood.
The essence of optimism is that it takes no account of the present, but it is a source of inspiration, of vitality and hope where others have resigned; it enables a man to hold his head high, to claim the future for himself and not to abandon it to his enemy.
I have discovered the secret of happiness - it is work, either with the hands or the head. The moment I have something to do, the draughts are open and my chimney draws, and I am happy.
Creativity can release you from the limitations that the world has constructed around you; the everyday, mundane, 9-5 jail cell where everybody is waiting for the weekend to party so they can get outside of their head.
Never make your home in a place. Make a home for yourself inside your own head. You'll find what you need to furnish it - memory, friends you can trust, love of learning, and other such things. That way it will go with you wherever you journey.
What we need to do is always lean into the future; when the world changes around you and when it changes against you - what used to be a tail wind is now a head wind - you have to lean into that and figure out what to do because complaining isn't a strategy.
The average person puts only 25% of his energy and ability into his work. The world takes off its hat to those who put in more than 50% of their capacity, and stands on its head for those few and far between souls who devote 100%.
The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration.
Songwriting is my way of channeling my feelings and my thoughts. Not just mine, but the things I see, the people I care about. My head would explode if I didn't get some of that stuff out.

A person has to remember that the road to success is always under construction. You have to get that through your head. That it is not easy becoming successful.
Sweet are the uses of adversity which, like the toad, ugly and venomous, wears yet a precious jewel in his head.
I like a woman with a head on her shoulders. I hate necks.
What a liberation to realize that the 'voice in my head' is not who I am. 'Who am I, then?' The one who sees that.
I have a very positive attitude in life. My insecurity, fear and need to know about tomorrow has fortunately eased. What is going to happen will happen anyway. So why break my head over it?
I went to Ethiopia, and it dawned on me that you can tell a starving, malnourished person because they've got a bloated belly and a bald head. And I realized that if you come through any American airport and see businessmen running through with bloated bellies and bald heads, that's malnutrition, too.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
