The unreal is more powerful than the real, because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it, because it's only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumbles, wood rots. People, well, they die. But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on.
People demand freedom of speech as a compensation for the freedom of thought which they seldom use.
Research is to see what everybody else has seen, and to think what nobody else has thought.
My mother was a very beautiful lady, I thought. She was very good to me. I guess - she died when I was nine and a half, but if she had lived, I probably wouldn't be trying to play guitar. She wanted me to be known, but as something else. Not a guitar player.
B. B. King
I wake up every morning literally with a smile on my face, grateful for another day I never thought I'd see.

I always thought I wanted to play professionally, and I always knew that to do that I'd have to make a lot of sacrifices.

I dated all these girls and ended up not liking them and thought to myself, 'What was it that all of them had in common?' They had too much time on their hands.
