Lightly Quotations

Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf.

That which we obtain too easily, we esteem too lightly.
Thomas Paine

There's a reason why the Foo Fighters don't blast out Nirvana songs every night: because we have a lot of respect for them. You know, that's hallowed ground. We have to be careful. We have to tread lightly. We have talked about it before, but the opportunity hasn't really come up, or it just hasn't felt right.
Dave Grohl

What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value.
Thomas Paine
