Quote by Sarah McLachlan
I think sometimes all you need is to hear someone else say the same thing that you're going through to realize that you're not alone. I try to put some sense of hope into the songs, into whatever the situation is so that it's not just dirt, drudgery and a life of misery.
This quote highlights the power of empathy and connection in challenging times. It suggests that hearing others go through the same experiences validates our own struggles, reassuring us that we are not alone. The speaker believes in creating hope and injecting positivity into their work, whether it be songs or other forms of expression, in order to transcend the difficult and mundane aspects of life. By doing so, they aim to offer comfort and inspire resilience in others facing similar situations, encouraging them to seek a more positive outlook amidst adversity.
A certain amount of reverie is good, like a narcotic in discreet doses. It soothes the fever, occasionally high, of the brain at work, and produces in the mind a soft, fresh vapor that corrects the all too angular contours of pure thought, fills up the gaps and intervals here and there, binds them together, and dulls the sharp corners of ideas. But too much reverie submerges and drowns. Thought is the labor of the intellect, reverie it's pleasure. To replace thought with reverie is to confound poison with nourishment.
Hither the heroes and nymphs resort,To taste awhile the pleasures of a court;In various talk th' instuctive hours they past,Who gave the ball, or paid the visit last;One speaks the glory of the British Queen,And one describes a charming Indian screenA third interprets motions, looks and eyes;At every word a reputation dies.
