The hour-hand of life.
A few hours' mountain climbing make of a rogue and a saint two fairly equal creatures. Tiredness is the shortest path to equality and fraternity - and sleep finally adds to them liberty.
The Hour-Hand of Life --- Life consists of rare, isolated moments of the greatest significance, and of innumerably many intervals, during which at best the silhouettes of those moments hover about us. Love, springtime, every beautiful melody, mountains, the moon, the sea - all these speak completely
To die proudly when it is no longer possible to live proudly. Death freely chosen, death at the right time, brightly and cheerfully accomplished amid children and witnesses: then a real farewell is still possible, as the one who is taking leave is still there; also a real estimate of what one has wi
Lying very still and thinking very little is the most inexpensive medicine for all the sicknesses of the soul, and when administered with good intentions it grows more and more pleasant with each passing hour.
The hour when you say, "What does my happiness matter? It is poverty and filth, and a wretched complacency. Yet my happiness should justify existence itself!
The greatest events-they are not our loudest but our stillest hours.
Every week we ought to have one hour for recieving letters, then go take a bath.
We are, all of us, growing volcanoes that approach the hour of their eruption, but how near or distant that is, nobody knows- not even God.
Man is not equally moral at all hours, this is well known. If his morality is judged to be the capability for great self-sacrificing resolutions and self-denial (which, when continuous and grown habitual, are called holiness)
A letter is an unannounced visit, the postman the agent of rude surprises. One ought to reserve an hour a week for receiving letters and afterwards take a bath.
One receives as reward for much ennui, despondency, boredom -such as a solitude without friends, books, duties, passions must bring with it -those quarter-hours of profoundest contemplation within oneself and nature. He who completely entrenches himself against boredom also entrenches himself agains
A few hours of mountain climbing make a blackguard and a saint two rather similar creatures.
Songs for me are like a message in a bottle. You send them out to the world, and maybe the person who you feel that way about will hear about it someday.
As your career grows, the list of things that makes you happy should not become smaller, it should become bigger.
I wish all teenagers can filter through songs instead of turning to drugs and alcohol.
But I say to Apple with all due respect, we donâ€™t ask you for free iPhones. Please donâ€™t ask us to provide you with our music for no compensation.
I've always been a hugger. If we all hugged more, the world would be a better place :)
I've apparently been the victim of growing up, which apparently happens to all of us at one point or another. It's been going on for quite some time now, without me knowing it. I've found that growing up can mean a lot of things. For me, it doesn't mean I should become somebody completely new and st
...we almost never speak I don't feel welcome anymorebaby what happened, please tell me?
I think that personality traits that come through when somebody is really sincere is what makes them beautiful.
My absolute favorite meal in Nashville is sweet-potato pancakes at Pancake Pantry. Taylor S
I think the perfection of love is that it's not perfect. Taylor S
Talk to the man with the reasons why.
I go to Wal-Mart all the time. The one in my hometown of Hendersonville, Tenn., is open 24 hours, so I go there a lot to buy DVDs and stuff like that.
I've got my Grammys on top of my piano and I look at them when I play.
I love the ending of a movie where two people end up together. Preferably if there's rain and an airport or running or a confession of love.
I began absolutely non-stop tormenting my parents, begging them on a daily basis to move there.
My favorite thing in life is writing about life, specifically the parts of life concerning love. Because, as far as I'm concerned, love is absolutely everything.
But no matter what love throws at you, you have to believe in it. You have ot believe in love stories and prince charmings and happily ever after. That's why I write these songs. Because I think love is FEARLESS.
Hendersonville is home because I live there and I work there. But when I come back to Pennsylvania and see the crowds and the landscape, it's such a rush. It just feels like home.
All you need to do to be my friend is like me. Taylor S
My style advice to other girls is to be experimental but always have a 'home base' and stick with your comfort style.
