  • I think each person knows what's good for them. I don't think you need to be drastic. But it's finding where's passion in your life. We can't live without dreams.

  • Cynicism isn't smarter, it's only safer. There's nothing fluffy about optimism. … People have the idea that optimism is fluffy, like you're going to have all these people like walking around in hippy clothing and utopia. No it's very practical. It's just a matter of people being more fulfilled and more whole as human beings.

A Night Without Armor (1998)Edit

  • I'd sit on logs like pulpits
    listen to the sermon
    of sparrows
    and find god in Simplicity,
    there amongst the dandelion
    and thorn
    • "As a Child I Walked"
  • the greatest
    Grace
    we can aspire to
    is the strength
    to see the wounded
    walk with the forgotten
    and pull ourselves
    from the screaming
    blood of our losses
    to fight on
    undaunted
    all the more
    • "I Say to You Idols"
