Some thoughts for you, from... everyone.

“Well, the stars, they have all gone,
and I’m glad you’ve come along”
—Nick Cave

“An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered.”
— G. K. Chesterton, “On Chasing After One’s Hat”

“What the biblical revelation tells us, a revelation that is summed up and completed in Jesus, is that we can’t become more like Jesus (more pleasing or acceptable to God) by becoming less human, less physical, less emotional, less involved with our families, less associated with socially or morally undesirable people. We don’t become more spiritual by becoming less human.”
—Eugene H. Peterson, Tell It Slant

“One more day
is another day away
from the girl
from the Red River shore.”
—Bob Dylan

If your Nick Cave is the same one who wrote the music for The Assassination of Jesse James, etc. and The Road, then I like him a whole lot.

Excellent quotes! (Especially Chesterton, I have been reminding myself of this quite often recently)
