It is not good to be too free. It is not good to have everything one wants.
The weirder you're going to behave, the more normal you should look. It works in reverse, too. When I see a kid with three or four rings in his nose, I know there is absolutely nothing extraordinary about that person.
P. J. O'Rourke
Harvard makes mistakes too, you know. Kissinger taught there.
By imposing too great a responsibility, or rather, all responsibility, on yourself, you crush yourself.
The time is long overdue to stop looking for progress through racial or ethnic leaders. Such leaders have too many incentives to promote polarizing attitudes and actions that are counterproductive for minorities and disastrous for the country.
I've always felt that if I examine myself too much, I'll find out what I know and don't know, and I'll burst the bubble. I've gotten so lucky relying on my animal instincts, I'd rather keep a little bit of the animal alive.
We must never be afraid to go too far, for truth lies beyond.
One always dies too soon or too late. And yet, life is there, finished: the line is drawn, and it must all be added up. You are nothing other than your life.
It's so much easier to suggest solutions when you don't know too much about the problem.
Truth is a good dog; but always beware of barking too close to the heels of an error, lest you get your brains kicked out.
One may miss the mark by aiming too high as too low.
As a teen, I heard the second Velvet Underground album, 'White Light/White Heat,' and it was too much for my limited scope of appreciation. It was intense, but I didn't get it.

I think they all went too far. Their jeans got too low, their tops got too see-through. Personally, I think that sexy is keeping yourself mysterious. I'm really an old-fashioned girl, and I think I'm totally sexy.

It is good news, worthy of all acceptation; and yet not too good to be true.
Music begins to atrophy when it departs too far from the dance... poetry begins to atrophy when it gets too far from music.
From too much love of living, From hope and fear set free, We thank with brief thanksgiving Whatever gods may be That no life lives for ever; That dead men rise up never; That even the weariest river Winds somewhere safe to sea.
Algernon Charles Swinburne

Francois de La Rochefoucauld
For a songwriter, you don't really go to songwriting school; you learn by listening to tunes. And you try to understand them and take them apart and see what they're made of, and wonder if you can make one, too.

Our principles are the springs of our actions. Our actions, the springs of our happiness or misery. Too much care, therefore, cannot be taken in forming our principles.
It is only too easy to make suggestions and later try to escape the consequences of what we say.
No man can purchase his virtue too dear, for it is the only thing whose value must ever increase with the price it has cost us. Our integrity is never worth so much as when we have parted with our all to keep it.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
