Smell the roses. Smell the coffee. Whatever it is that makes you happy.

Roses are red, violets are blue, I'm schizophrenic, and so am I.
I have lived pain, and my life can tell: I only deepen the wound of the world when I neglect to give thanks the heavy perfume of wild roses in early July and the song of crickets on summer humid nights and the rivers that run and the stars that rise and the rain that falls and all the good things that a good God gives.

Decide who you are and what your goals entail - then go for the roses. Life has little regard for those who waste time.

Treaties, you see, are like girls and roses; they last while they last.
Charles de Gaulle
A personal highlight was probably when we got a No. 1 in the U.K. and when the album went to No. 1 in America. The top four that week was us, Adele, Guns N' Roses and Bruce Springsteen.
