I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We've created life in our own image.

"The mystery is that it's a language for something that has no language; it's an expression for something that just can't be expressed. But it is expressed. Just the existence of music is totally audacious" - Jeff Buckley

He has some amazing quotes about how he feels about music, but I think this one hits the nail on the head.

The quote in my signature is my favorite quote of all time :)

He was a great musician, you should check him out sometime. Here's another

"An artist isn't separate from a person who isn't or doesn't feel they're an artist. There's artistry in human beings; it's just a human function. I find answers from music all the time. But because I most identify with music as a way of expressing myself, I just find most of my answers there. Other people find it through painting or art or teaching or murder."

Oh boy

The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas.

Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, and the lesson afterwards.

Work is punishment for failing to procrastinate effectively.
