“[…]the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes “Awww!”

― Jack Kerouac, On the Road

Paolo Nutini – Lose It

“To be of the Earth is to know 
the restlessness of being a seed 
the darkness of being planted 
the struggle toward the light 
the pain of growth into the light 
the joy of bursting and bearing fruit 
the love of being food for someone 
the scattering of your seeds 
the decay of the seasons 
the mystery of death and 
the miracle of birth.”

― John Soos

When I Die – Rumi 

“Knock, And He’ll open the door
Vanish, And He’ll make you shine like the sun
Fall, And He’ll raise you to the heavens
Become nothing, And He’ll turn you into everything.” 

― Jalal Ad-Din Rumi

Rise Up – Rumi

“I want to see you.

Know your voice.

Recognize you when you
first come ’round the corner.

Sense your scent when I come 
into a room you’ve just left.

Know the lift of your heel,
the glide of your foot.

Become familiar with the way 
you purse your lips
then let them part, 
just the slightest bit,
when I lean in to your space
and kiss you.

I want to know the joy 
of how you whisper 

― Mawlana Jalal-al-Din Rumi

Lose Yourself – Rumi

“This is love: to fly toward a secret sky, to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment. First to let go of life. Finally, to take a step without feet.” 
― Rumi


“Take someone who doesn’t keep score,
who’s not looking to be richer, or afraid of losing,
who has not the slightest interest even
in his own personality: he’s free.” 
― Rumi Jalalu’l-Din

paolo nutini – take me take mine

“Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion.”

― Rumi

beautiful chorus – infinite universe
