Teignmouth On the night train From the city to the south I saw spirits Crawl across the river mouth In skewed ascension With no destination Like this lone bachelor in me This constant yearning For great love and learning For the wind to carry me free
So when the birds fly south I'll Reach up and hold their tails Pull up and out of here And bridle the autumn gales Down to the burning cliffs To the unrelenting roll To marry the untold blisses And anchor this lost soul
From my window I saw two birds lost at sea I caught our reflection In that silent tragedy But with hope prevailing I draw galleons sailing In full sail billowing free
So when the birds fly south We'll reach up and hold their tails Pull up and out of here And bridle the autumn gales I give you my hand The fingers unfold To have and forever hold To marry the untold blisses And anchor this lost soul
"Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust. You couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t exploded, because the elements - The carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution and for life - weren’t created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars, and the only way for them to get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode. So, forget Jesus. The stars died so that you could be here today."
“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round heads in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify them, or vilify them. But the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.”
