Gary Jules - Mad World (live)
Great song with meaningful lyrics (Introduced to me by Marty Downs - thank you). Gary Jules performs live his Tears for Fears cover: Mad World! All around me are familiar faces Worn out places, worn out faces Bright and early for their daily races Going nowhere, going nowhere Their tears are filling up their glasses No expression, no expression Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow

Prayer of the unknown confederate soldier - health, wisdom, poems
I asked for strength that I might achieve; I was made weak that I might learn humbly to obey. I asked for health that I might do greater things; I was given infirmity that I might do better things. I asked for riches that I might be happy; I was given poverty that I might be wise. I asked for power that I might have the praise of men; I was given weakness that I might feel the need of God.

Emily Dickinson stood up and lived
I'm pleased to hear that she lived :) Emily Dickinson Three times -- we parted -- Breath -- and I -- Three times -- He would not go -- But strove to stir the lifeless Fan The Waters -- strove to stay. Three Times -- the Billows tossed me up -- Then caught me -- like a Ball -- Then made Blue faces in my face -- And pushed away a sail That crawled Leagues off -- I liked to see -- For thinking --
