Here are some of my favorite Enigma lyrics:

Love - Devotion
Feeling - Emotion
Don't be afraid to be weak
Don't be too proud to be strong
Just look into your heart my friend
That will be the return to yourself
The return to innocence
If you want, then start to laugh
If you must, then start to cry
Be yourself don't hide
Just believe in destiny
Don't care what people say
Just follow your own way
Don't give up and use the chance
To return to innocence
That's not the beginning of the end
That's the return to yourself
The return to innocence

---------------------------

Let us try to live our lost illusions
They're the sun at night
If we don't we'll never taste
The spice of life
And when it seems that we're in a dead end street
There's no reason to cry
Cause we have a helping hand who's always aside
Forever light

------------------------------

There is no teacher
Who can teach anything new
He can just help us to remember
The things we always knew

---------------------------------

Don't submit to stupid rules
Be yourself and not a fool
Don't accept average habits
Open your heart and push the limits

First they came for the Communists,
and I didn’t speak up,
because I wasn’t a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn’t speak up,
because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn’t speak up,
because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me,
and by that time there was no one
left to speak up for me.

I first heard this poem uttered from the lips of Dr Ang Swee Chai, a brave advocate of the Palestinian liberation cause, someone who braved bullets and kalashnikovs for the sake of the principles expressed in this poem.
Read here http://www.hoboes.com/html/FireBlade...iemoller.shtml about the man who wrote these words.

Ok I have a few....

Will post them seperately. Hope that is ok.

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic ’til I’m gathered safely in
Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Oh let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone
Let me feel you moving like they do in babylon
Show me slowly what I only know the limits of
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
Me to the wedding now, dance me on and on
Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long
We’re both of us beneath our love, we’re both of us above
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the children who are asking to be born
Dance me through the curtains that our kisses have outworn
Raise a tent of shelter now, though every thread is torn
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic till I’m gathered safely in
Touch me with your naked hand or touch me with your glove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

-Leonard Cohen

And another Cohen tune...

Now I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew her
She tied you
To a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

You say I took the name in vain
I don't even know the name
But if I did, well really, what's it to you?
There's a blaze of light
In every word
It doesn't matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I did my best, it wasn't much
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you
And even though
It all went wrong
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah

And just a few lines out of various U2 songs...


Rise up, rise up with wings like eagles. You run, you run.
You run and not grow weary. (Drowning Man)

When I was all messed up and I heard opera in my head
Your love was a light bulb hanging over my bed. (Ultraviolet (light my way)...)

You say you'll give me a highway with no one on it (All I Want is You)

I don't know you, you don't know the half of it. (Dirty Day)

Don't let the bastards grind you down. (Acrobat)

Lookin' for to fill that God-shaped hole (Mofo)

Put flowers in the mud baby (Zooropa)

A new heart is what I need. Oh, God make it bleed. (Like A Song)



Geesh, I am so sorry. I really put wayyy to much... Couldnt help it

These are a a few quotes I like and find inspirational...and thought provoking.

"It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations. Bartlett's Familiar Quotations is an admirable work, and I studied it intently. The quotations when engraved upon the memory give you good thoughts. They also make you anxious to read the authors and look for more." - Sir Winston Churchill

Heh...

Another U2 one I just thought of:

"Angry words won't stop the fight, two wrongs won't make it right."-"Like A Song"

It doesn't interest me if the story you're telling me is true
I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself; if you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul. I want to know if you can be faithful and therefore be trustworthy. I want to know if you can see beauty even when it is not pretty every day, and if you can source your life from its presence. I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand on the edge of a lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, "YES!"

- The Oriah Mountain Dreamer "The Invitation"

Various Sources:

"Live a life to make the undertaker weep at your grave" - Turkish proverb

"The fastest way to succeed is to look as if you're playing
by somebody else's rules, while quietly playing by your own" - Michael Korda

"An eye for and eye makes the whole world blind" - Ghandi

U2 Lyrics:

Please
Intransegence is all around
military still in town
armor plated suits and ties
daddy just won't say goodbye
referee won't blow the whistle
god is good but will he listen
I'm nearly great but there's something missing
I left it in the
duty free
it never really
belonged to me

One
One love
One blood
One life
you got to do what you should

One life
with each other
sisters
brothers

One life
but we're not the same
we get to carry each other
carry each other
one
one

So Cruel
"Between the horses of love and lust, we are trampled underfoot"

The Fly
It's no secret that the stars are falling from the sky
It's no secret that our world is in darkness tonight.
They say the sun is sometimes eclipsed by the moon
Y' know I don't see you when she walks in the room.

It's no secret that a friend is someone who lets you help.
It's no secret that a liar won't believe anyone else.
They say a secret is something you tell one other person
So I'm telling you, child.

Love, we shine like a
Burning star
We're falling from
The sky... tonight
A man will beg
A man will crawl
On the sheer face of love
Like a fly on a wall
It's no secret at all

It's no secret that a conscience can sometimes be a pest.
It's no secret ambition bites the nails of success.
Every artist is a cannibal, every poet is a thief;
All kill their inspiration and sing about the grief.

Love, we shine like a
Burning star
We're falling from
The sky... tonight
A man will beg
A man will crawl
On the sheer face of love
Like a fly on a wall
It's no secret at all

Love, we shine like a
Burning star
We're falling from
The sky... tonight
A man will beg
A man will crawl
On the sheer face of love
Like a fly on a wall
It's no secret at all

It's no secret that the stars are falling from the sky
The universe exploding 'cos-a one man's lie.
Look I gotta go, yeah, I'm running outta change;
There's a lot of things if I could I'd rearrange.


One Tree Hill
"I'll see you again, when the stars fall from the sky, and the moon has turned red, over One Tree Hill"

With Or Without You
"Through the storm we reach the shore, you give it all but I want more"



Lennon Lyrics

Love
Love is real, real is love
Love is feeling, feeling love
Love is wanting to be loved
Love is touch, touch is love
Love is reaching, reaching love
Love is asking to be loved

Love is you
You and me
Love is knowing
We can be

Love is free, free is love
Love is living, living love
Love is needing to be loved

Imagine
Imagine there's no heaven,
It's easy if you try,
No hell below us,
Above us only sky,
Imagine all the people
living for today...

Imagine there's no countries,
It isn't hard to do,
Nothing to kill or die for,
No religion too,
Imagine all the people
living life in peace...

You may say I'm a dreamer,
but 'Im not the only one,
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one.

Imagine no possesions,
I wonder if you can,
No need for greed or hunger,
A brotherhood of man,
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say I'm a dreamer,
but 'Im not the only one,
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one.


Working Class Hero
As soon as you’re born they make you feel small
By giving you no time instead of it all
Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be
They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
They hate you if you’re clever and they despise a fool
Till you’re so fucking crazy you can’t follow their rules
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

When they’ve tortured and scared you for twenty odd years
Then they expect you to pick a career
When you can’t really function you’re so full of fear
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

Keep you doped with religion and sex and tv
And you think you’re so clever and classless and free
But you’re still fucking peasants as far as I can see
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

There’s room at the top they are telling you still
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
If you want to be like the folks on the hill
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

If you want to be a hero well just follow me
If you want to be a hero well just follow me

End Part 1

Ok I have to put some of these little sayings in. They are not profound or inspiring in any way and let me know if it isn't appropriate to put them on this thread. I don't mind at all....

Growing up in Georgia, I heard quite a few sayings and here are some of them....

"Grinning like a mule eattin' briars" (said when someone is realllllly smiling)

"He could bite a pumpkin through a barbed-wire fence" (not a nice thing, said about someone with buck teeth).

"Tight as Dick's hat band." (Said when trying to open a jar and you can't or trying to untangle a knot of any kind, or when your pants are a bit small.)

"My stars!" (State of shock or suprise.... my mom still says this.)

"Good night Miss Agnes!" ( said when you are not pleased... my mom still says this one too...)

Ok my husband is from Northern Ireland and he has introduced me to several "new" sayings....

"He could peel an apple through a tennis raquet" (the whole buck teeth thing, evidentally is trans-atlantic)

"Thick as two short planks" (said of an "intellectual tortoise")

"Tight as two coats of paint" (said of someone that is cheap)

"Is the pope catholic?" (said to me always when I am asking a question where the answer is yes)

"Does a one-legged duck swim in circles?" (again the answer is yes)

"It's mingin'!" (said when the house is filthy i.e. I have kicked my shoes off in the middle of the living room again....)

"Wee" ( and I only point this out because in Cookstown, where he is from, everything is wee... including the semi trucks going down the road)

"What's the craic?" ( craic = crack ... I love this one obviously hence my nick... it means what's going on? anything happening, also good craic = good laugh, fun etc...)

If its ok that I am posting these I will post more later.

Take care,

Carrie

If


If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream--and not make dreams your master,
If you can think--and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings--nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much,
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And--which is more--you'll be a Man, my son!

--Rudyard Kipling
