I love this song – typing and singing it’s the way to go

Music and writing go together. It blocks out the external noise and allows us to focus on the work on hand!

“I prefer to let my voice do all the talking for me.” Jarod Kintz

Quotes

“All I have is a voice.” W.H. Auden

“Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.”  Helen Keller (my writing)

“All stories have a curious and even dangerous power. They are manifestations of truth — yours and mine. And truth is all at once the most wonderful yet terrifying thing in the world, which makes it nearly impossible to handle. It is such a great responsibility that it’s best not to tell a story at all unless you know you can do it right. You must be very careful, or without knowing it you can change the world.” Vera Nazarian

“I will have my voice: Indian, Spanish, white. I will have my serpent’s tongue — my woman’s voice, my sexual voice, my poet’s voice. I will overcome the tradition of silence.” Gloria E. Anzaldua

“I decided it is better to scream. Silence is the real crime against humanity.” Nadazhda Mandelstam

“We stand now where two roads diverge. But unlike the roads in Robert Frost’s familiar poem, they are not equally fair. The road we have long been traveling is deceptively easy, a smooth superhighway on which we progress with great speed, but at its end lies disaster. The other fork of the road—the one “less traveled by”—offers our last, our only chance to reach a destination that assures the preservation of the earth.”  Rachel Carson

“The thing women have yet to learn is nobody gives you power. You just take it. ” Roseanne Barr

“When people don’t express themselves, they die one piece at a time.”Laurie Halse Anderson

“For within living structures defined by profit, by linear power, by institutional dehumanization, our feelings were not meant to survive. Kept around as unavoidable adjuncts or pleasant pastimes, our feelings were expected to kneel to thought as women were expected to kneel to men. But women have survived. As poets.”Audre Lorde

“Speech is the voice of the heart.” Anna Quindlen

“Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.” Louisa May Alcott

“Songwriting and poetry are so commonly birthed from underdogs because one can make even the ugliest situations admirable, or more beautiful than the beautiful situations – they are the most graceful media in which the lines of society are distorted.” Criss Jami

“The last thing I wanted was infinite security and to be the place an arrow shoots off from. I wanted change and excitement and to shoot off in all directions myself, like the colored arrows from a Fourth of July rocket.” Sylvia Plath

“In my heart, I think a woman has two choices: either she’s a feminist or a masochist.” Gloria Steinem

“In passing, also, I would like to say that the first time Adam had a chance he laid the blame on a woman.” Nancy Astor

“When you give yourself permission to communicate what matters to you in every situation you will have peace despite rejection or disapproval. Putting a voice to your soul helps you to let go of the negative energy of fear and regret.” Shannon L. Alder
