I have taken the marshmallows off the sweet potatoes,
by Edie Brickell

I have taken the marshmallows off the sweet potatoes,
however.
They would make a big pan of sweet potatoes and cover it with marshmallows.
My kids would love it if I would do that for them!
- Edie Brickell

I can make dressing - or stuffing.
Y'all call it stuffing up here, we call it dressing down there.

If it turns out to be a hit, well, good luck dealing with fame.

is really the best thing you can do for yourself.
- Edie Brickell

A lot of the songs start with an image.
I was sitting there playing the guitar and I pictured this old,
dirty green car, with the window rolled down,
in the hot, hot, hot Texas heat, and this beautiful
woman I knew when I was a kid sitting behind the wheel,
looking out at me.
- Edie Brickell

blessed they were with great songs or long careers,

letting it move along.

beautifully and magically.

She could just go in there, the whole kitchen would
look like a tornado hit it and then she'd come out with the best food.
Then she'd sit at the table and she wouldn't eat!

Life is too important to be taken seriously.
- Oscar Wilde

Between believing a thing and thinking you KNOW
is only a small step and quickly taken.
- Mark Twain

We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men
who walked through the huts comforting others,
giving away their last piece of bread...
They offer sufficient proof that everything
can be taken from a man but one thing:
to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances,
to choose one's own way.
- Viktor E. Frankl

Do not let Sunday be taken from you.
If your soul has no Sunday, it becomes an orphan.

You can learn how to let go of the past.
Whether you have experienced a break up

whether you have lost a job.
Move on and let go.
Life can be joyful and rewarding again.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Nature puts no question and answers none which we mortals ask.
She has long ago taken her resolution.
- Henry David Thoreau

Personally, I have fond memories of playing
on slippery rocks on the banks of a rushing river
as a child and hitchhiking in college.
To those who say, "But times are different now,"
I reply that statistically life is much safer now
than in the 1950s, with regard to both crime and accidents.
What has changed is our attitudes.
In those years, a broken leg from falling off a swing
or the back of a tractor was just part of childhood -
an excuse for gathering autographs.
Today that broken leg would be a source
of outrage and probably lawsuits.
I long for a simpler time when life was taken less seriously.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

It is better to conquer yourself
than to win a thousand battles.
Then the victory is yours.
It cannot be taken from you,
not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.
- The Buddha

Once you have seen the truth
you must make the decision to let go
of the pain, anger, and resentment you have been holding on to.
This requires you to take action.
If you are attached to your pain, resentment,
and self-righteousness, and addicted to your emotional reactions,
this will be a difficult step for you.
Taking action requires letting go of the very thing
you have been holding on to for so many years.
There is comfort in what we find familiar,
even if we are experiencing pain and suffering.
The pain and suffering itself becomes the familiarity we seek.
It takes absolute faith in yourself
plus courage, will, and discipline to let go.
But once you let go, it will be as if
the weight of the world has been taken off your shoulders.
In this process it is important to forgive
not just the others in our lives, but also ourselves.
For most people, giving ourselves
the gift of forgiveness is very challenging.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Society is always taken by surprise
at any new example of common sense.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

There is no substitute for the comfort supplied
by the utterly taken-for-granted relationship.
- Iris Murdoch

Your innermost core has always been pure.
Purity is intrinsic to you,
it cannot be taken away.
- Osho

Most of us believe that we have
been betrayed by someone outside of us -
in other words someone has done something to hurt us,
been dishonest or broken a promise made:
some trust in some concept was broken.
Indeed someone may have taken an action
that took only their needs into consideration,
they may have not followed through on a promise made,
and they may have not told you the truth.
But their actions have nothing to do with you
and have everything to do with them.
That's why no one can do anything TO you.
They can take actions that involve you that you may not like -
according to your point of view.
But you are not a victim, no way, no how.
- Sheri Rosenthal

Peace is a journey of a thousand miles and it must
be taken one step at a time.
- Lyndon B. Johnson

Everyone who's ever taken a shower has an idea.
It's the person who gets out of the shower,
dries off and does something about it who makes a difference.
- Nolan Bushnell

A moderate addiction to money may not always be hurtful;
but when taken in excess it is nearly always bad for the health.

Babies don't need fathers, but mothers do.
Someone who is taking care of a baby needs to be taken care of.

Life is a travelling to the edge of knowledge,
then a leap taken.

For me, nothing has ever taken precedence over being
a mother and having a family and a home.
- Jessica Lange

The first step toward success is taken when you refuse
to be a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself.
- Mark Caine

LOVE LETTERS TO YOURSELF
This is taken from a love letter (a gentle reminder)
I wrote to myself recently.
Live in your joy today.
Be authentic. Love yourself. First.
Love others from your own abundance.
Life Changes. Circumstances change.
Sometimes you try to fit your old way
of being into new circumstances
rather than becoming new yourself.
Embrace transformation as an opportunity.
And keep on writing love letters to yourself.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.
- Fred Allen

The one serious conviction that a man should have
is that nothing should be taken too seriously.

When I can look life in the eyes, grown calm and very coldly wise,
life will have given me the truth, and taken in exchange -
my youth.
- Sara Teasdale

A vow is a purely religious act
which cannot be taken in a fit of passion.
It can be taken only with a mind purified
and composed and with God as witness.
- Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi

If you doubt the virtue in self-honor,
remember what the flight attendant says,
"Put your own oxygen mask on first."
You are of no use to anyone else
if you have not taken care of your own needs first -
this includes your own emotional,
as well as physical, well-being.
In addition, your greatest value to your children,
your family, your friends, and your community
is the example you set, leading a great life that inspires
those around you to emulate your being.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

a bank robbery has just taken place.
- Johnny Carson

I've taken up golf in the past five or six years,
and most of the time there aren't too many people out
there that can drive a ball further than I can.
- Bo Jackson

As one gets older, it happens that in the morning one
fails to remember the airplane trip to be taken in
a few hours or the lecture scheduled for the afternoon.
- Rudolf Arnheim

An allegory is not meant to be taken literally.
There is a great lack of comprehension on the part of some readers.
- Naguib Mahfouz

When I moved to Seattle, I was hanging out with kids who had done drugs,
had sex a million times.
I look at them now and realize their childhood was taken away.
- Jeff Ament

If life must not be taken too seriously,
then so neither must death.
- Samuel Butler

A story has been thought through to the end when it

single separable electric quanta,

have been taken when sins are called by their right names.

after you have honestly given it,
to be perfectly indifferent whether it is taken or not,
and never persist in trying to set people right.
