something beautiful can be turned into something stinky by yapping about it too much

While we're quoting lyrics...

It's not why you're running
It's where you're going
It's not what you're dreaming
But what you're gonna do

It's not where you're born
It's where you belong
It's not how weak
But what will make you strong

I've learned patience. There are others, but that's the main thing.

A whole new way to look at the world

Also...to work a hard, save even harder, and to twist almost any paper to fit them in somehow, thus enhancing said paper with personal flair

I think I've learned that a great song should be not be tied to a socio-political campaign and then played to death, year after year.

i love this, and i can relate. in my final English exam in high school, we had to write an essay on Encountering Conflict, and i wrote about a page and a half on U2 and Sarajevo and the IRA etc.
