aggressive enough to say no.

But when it came to jamming and writing songs like we used to,
we realized Brandon was a huge spirit in the band.
Who knew? It was just something we had to learn.

And I was very comfortable with this band even when we disagreed.
It takes a long time to feel comfortable enough to disagree with somebody.
When everything happened, it just was really confusing.
It's like our weaknesses were nurtured and brought out front by outsiders.
- Edie Brickell

If it turns out to be a hit, well, good luck dealing with fame.
And if it's not a hit and you can still survive and
make music you believe in,
well, then you're truly blessed.
I think that's where we are now.
- Edie Brickell

blessed they were with great songs or long careers,
if they lived alone, they lived alone.
That's not the way I wanted to live prior to the tour or after.

My grandmother was the greatest cook in the world.
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!

When I look at my kids, and the ease with which they pick up music,
I wish I had that.
- 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

we've never really felt while making records.

I like Rufus Wainwright a whole lot.
He makes me wanna be even more musical.

But who cares? I can honestly look back and realize
that everything happened for a reason.
Everything that fell apart has fallen back into place
beautifully and magically.

I need to go outside.
I wouldn't say I'm an outdoors person,
but I like to go outside.
- Edie Brickell

a big part of our problem.

There are those that look at things
the way they are, and ask "Why?"

and that's what parents were created for.

Most people think that anger is an instinctive response,
and that some people were just born with the temperament
to get angrier faster than others.
That statement is only half right.
Anger is an instinctive response.
We respond to an affront with anger essentially instantaneously -
much too quickly for conscious thought to be called upon.
But the instinct of the anger response
can be trained through conscious repetition,
visualization, and coaching.
Visualization is seeing the event
we desire to master in our mind's eye.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

There's no tragedy in life like the death of a child.
Things never get back to the way they were.

We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason
if we dig deep in our history and remember
that we are not descended from fearful men,
not from men who feared to write, to speak,
to associate and to defend causes
which were for the moment unpopular.
- Edward R. Murrow

Contrariwise, if it was so, it might be;
and if it were so, it would be;
but as it isn't, it ain't. That's logic.
- Lewis Carroll

What If Every Day Were Your Day -
Celebrate Whimsey Today.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

We act as though comfort and luxury
were the chief requirements of life,
when all that we need to make us really happy
is something to be enthusiastic about.
- Charles Kingsley

When we hate our enemies, we are
giving them power over us:
power over our sleep, our appetites,
our blood pressure, our health, and our happiness.
Our enemies would dance with joy if only
they knew how they were worrying us,
lacerating us, and getting even with us!
Our hate is not hurting them at all,
but our hate is turning our own days
and nights into a hellish turmoil.
- Dale Carnegie

I will miss who I thought you were.

as important as you thought you were.
Relax. The weight of the world
is not on your shoulders.

The world will still be there tomorrow -
as good and as bad as ever.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

We would never have a word for Joy
if there were no suffering.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves,
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.
- Marianne Williamson

Forgiveness is unlocking the door to set someone free
and realizing you were the prisoner!
- Max Lucado

Naturally, every age thinks that all ages before it were prejudiced,
and today we think this more than ever, and are just as wrong
as all previous ages that thought so.
How often have we not seen the truth condemned!
It is sad but unfortunately true that man learns nothing from history.
- Carl Jung
