The Trick Bag

Take heart traveler; come to the table.


"Nonviolence is the answer to the crucial political and moral questions of our time: the need for people to overcome oppression and violence without resorting to oppression and violence."

This is gold.  The whole album is gold.

"I wanted the gold, and I sought it;
I scrabbled and mucked like a slave.
Was it famine or scurvy ~ I fought it;
I hurled my youth into a grave.
I wanted the gold and I got it ~
Came out with a fortune last fall;
Yet somehow life’s not what I thought;
And somehow the gold isn’t all."

- The Spell of the Yukon by Robert Service

"Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself."

Some photos I’ve taken.

I posted this song quite sometime ago and to this day it remains my favorite song.  I didn’t know it was possible to have a favorite song, and of course I listen to tons of other tunes, I don’t just keep this one on repeat at all times.  However, this song, though it is not some incredibly poetic or profound lyrical masterpiece, the simplicity and the guitars and the light cymbals make it an absolute gem.  And although it’s such a simple chorus, it’s beautiful: “I’m sleepwalkin’.”

I’ve found myself posting an awful lot of quotes recently and I’m alright with that.  It’s a beautiful thing to showcase the words of another.  There exists an incredible amount of truth and knowledge to be obtained by those gone before.  You can learn so much about an individual based on who they look up to and who they quote.  You share in the passion and ideals of those you quote.  So let’s continue to quote friends.  However, don’t be afraid to make a few quotes of your own.  Find your passion and ideals, and speak them to life, or in this case; type them to life.

"The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time."
