When you're face down at the very bottom of who you are, and there is no formality or pretence to cling to, all your masks fall off. In this broken place, our lives can be seen for what they are, no more no less; we are ourselves.
If we spend out time obsessing with the future or regretting the past, then we will never live. Tomorrow will always be tomorrow and yesterday cannot be changed.


Well, the funny thing is, you are never the same person that you were the day before. 


You walk along sunset and you can feel the energy… something intangible in the air. All that motion and no real change. We're all thirsty for it: thirsty for life, true love, meaning, the kingdom of the heavens… for the water that breathes new life inside.


I used to think that great art happened without argument, and maybe that's not the case. Maybe the things that are most important in this life, you have to fight for.


Every day of your life, you change the world. Absolutely, yes, we're out to change the world. I mean, you change it whether you like it or not. You wake up and you talk to the grocer. You either kick your dog or you pet him. There's a million decisions you have every day where you change the world.


My friends, there is a big difference between the way this world should be and the way it is.
