    Just a little place for any wise/inspirational lyrics that mean a lot to you.

    Music has taught me a lot in my life, lessons, mistakes, views.. I wanted to share a few of these, and I thought you would like to share some with everybody else, too.

    I'd like everyone to be able to look at this thread for comfort or a mood boost after a long day or during a difficult time, so please keep it nice!

    With that noted, maybe I should begin;

    Don’t waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes
    you’re behind…the race is long, and in the end, it’s only with
    yourself.
    - Baz Luhrmann - Everybody's Free

    Although a popular song for my generation, I have always found this song to be something I can aim to live by, something I can relate to, and, as it was always meant to be - a source of great advice.

    I chose this particular quote because back in the last years of education and the early years of my career I always felt I wasn't doing my best because others were doing better. This particular advice helped me to realise to set my own pace in life, no matter what those around me are or are not doing, and that's something I still think about and try to do to this day.

    Anyway, I look forward to hearing some lyrics that are important to you all, as well.

    Thanks!

    I like big butts and I can not lie
    You other brothers can't deny
    That when a girl walks in with an itty bitty waist
    And a round thing in your face
    You get sprung, wanna pull out your tough
    'Cause you notice that butt was stuffed
    Deep in the jeans she's wearing
    I'm hooked and I can't stop staring
    Oh baby, I wanna get with you
    And take your picture
    My homeboys tried to warn me
    But that butt you got makes me so-

    Hm, maybe I should stop there.

    "Now I'm sure you've had times when you've felt down or angry,
    Wanted to lash out, punch a wall and be manly,
    But the question I pose now will offer you a plan B,
    And maybe some peace and quiet for your friends and family,
    How hard is it to decide to be in a good mood,
    And then just be.. in.. a good mood?
    That's all I have to say because it's a straight up fact,
    You control your emotions it's as simple as that."

    "Blackbird singing in the dead of night,
    Take these broken wings and learn to fly,
    All your life,
    You were only waiting for this moment to arise.
    Blackbird singing in the dead of night,
    Take these sunken eyes and learn to see,
    All your life,
    You were only waiting for this moment to be free."
    Blackbird - The Beatles

    "Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
    Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
    Everybody knows that the war is over
    Everybody knows the good guys lost
    Everybody knows the fight was fixed
    The poor stay poor, the rich get rich" - Leonard Cohen

    "I've loved, I've laughed and cried
    I've had my fill, my share of losing
    And now, as tears subside, I find it all so amusing
    To think I did all that
    And may I say, not in a shy way,
    Oh, no, oh, no, not me, I did it my way" - Frank Sinatra

    "Singin': "Don't worry 'bout a thing, 'Cause every little thing gonna be all right." - Bob Marley

    "Well I won't back down, no I won't back down. You can stand me up at the gates of hell But I won't back down" - Tom Petty (I prefer the Johnny Cash cover)

    "But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake." - Still alive by Jonathan Coulton

    I say this line in my head whenever I feel disheartened about something. Who knew GLaDOS could be so encouraging :p

    "Can't you tell that somebody really loves you?
    If I didn't love you, why would I bother...
    To suffer what I suffer.
    My life hangs in the balance, it's not about money...
    'Cause I can make all the money I want with all the talent that I got.
    I know people would pay a whole lot of money
    if I shut my mouth and go singing or playing my violin or...
    It ain't about money!
    It's about human beings being able to grow and develop,
    so that the world can be made a better place to live on!
    It ain't about money..." -- Romanthony "Hold On" (1999)

    Not sure if it's from a song but this means a lot to me.

    ;A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.'

    I'm busy doing nothing
    Working the whole day through
    Trying to find lots of things not to do
    I'm busy going nowhere, isn't it just a crime?
    I'd like to be unhappy, but.. I never do have the time!

    Proud, I'm proud of what I am
    Poems I speak are Plug Two type
    Please, oh please let Plug Two be
    Himself, not what you read or write
    Write is wrong when hype is written
    On the soul, De La that is
    Style is surely our own thing
    Not the false disguise of showbiz

    - De La Soul, "Me, Myself and I" (1989)


    Take a little trip back to Father Tiresias
    Listen to the old one speak of all he has lived through:
    "I have crossed between the poles, for me there's no mystery.
    Once a man, like the sea I raged. Once a woman, like the earth I gave."
    There is, in fact, more earth than sea

    - Genesis, "The Cinema Show" (1973)


    There'll come a time, when the world won't be singin'
    Flowers won't grow, bells won't be ringin'
    Who really cares?
    Who's willing to try to save a world
    That's destined to die?
    When I look at the world it fills me with sorrow
    Little children today, are they gonna suffer tomorrow?

    - Marvin Gaye, "Save the Children" (1971)

    You'll never again wake up with silence in your heart/
    You'll never again wake up with your whole world torn apart/
    I'll will be your shelter and these tears will be your last/
    You'll never again wake up with silence in your heart/ -- Dash Berlin "Silence In Your Heart" (2012)

    All natural and technological processes proceed in such a way that the availability of the remaining energy decreases
    In all energy exchanges, if no energy enters or leaves an isolated system the entropy of that system increases
    Energy continuously flows from being concentrated to becoming dispersed, spread out, wasted and useless
    New energy cannot be created and high-grade energy is being destroyed
    An economy based on endless growth is unsustainable

    - Muse, The 2nd Law: Unsustainable

    Even if they are slightly wrong about science - energy is never created or destroyed, it simply converts to another form of energy, e.g. the conversion of electrical energy to kinetic, sound and heat energy by an electric motor.
