Jonathan Livingston Seagull

“They are saying in the Flock that if you are not the Son of the Great Gull Himself”, Fletcher told Jonathan one morning after Advanced Speed Practice, “then you are a thousand years ahead of your time.”
Jonathan sighed. The price of being misunderstood he thought. They call you devil or they call you god. “What do you think, Fletch? Are we ahead of our time?”
A long silence, “Well, this kind of flying has always been here to be learned by anyone who wanted to discover it; that’s got nothing to do with time. We’re ahead of the fashion, maybe. Ahead of the way that most gulls fly.”“That’s something,” Jonathan said, rolling to glide inverted for a while. “That’s not half as bad as being ahead of our time”.

Keane "Love is the end"

1 comment:

  1. Have been listening to Perfect Symmetry a lot recently...this is a great song and seems to be the right song at the right time for me....

    Love is the end - Keane

    Now is the time of our comfort and plenty
    These are the days we've been working for
    Nothing can touch us, and nothing can hurt us
    And nothing goes wrong anymore

    Singing a song with your feet on the dashboard
    The cigarette streaming into the night
    These are the things that I want to remember
    I want to remember you by

    It won't come again
    Cos love is the end
    Oh no, my friend
    Love is the end

    I took off my clothes and I ran to the ocean
    Looking for somewhere to start a-new
    And when I was drowning in that holy water
    All I could think of was you

    Woah, my friend
    Love is the end
    So lets not pretend
    Cos love is the end

    Take it back, don't let it die
    Or rage against the fallen night
    Cos I still do, depend on you
    Don't say those words, you wrung me through

    Woah, oh oh
    Love is the end
    So lets not pretend
    Cos love is the end

    So I tread the only road
    The only road I know
    Nowhere to go, but home
    Nowhere to go
    Maybe our time is up
    But still you can't abandon
    But all the principles of love
    Don't say those words
    Don't say those words
