Be chivalrous to strangers you meet along the road

Ourselves to Know, Warren Zevon), 2000.

We left Constantinople in a thousand ninety-nine
To restore the one True Cross was in this heart of mine
To bring it to Jerusalem and then sail home to Rhodes

We took that holy ride ourselves to know
We took that holy ride ourselves to know

Everyone got famous, everyone got rich
Everyone went off the rails and ended in the ditch
But we had to take that long hard road to see where it would go

Yeah, we took that holy ride ourselves to know
We took that holy ride ourselves to know

Now if you make a pilgrimage, I hope you find your grail
Be loyal to the ones you live with even if you fail
And be chivalrous to strangers you meet along the road

As you take that holy ride yourselves to know
You take that holy ride yourselves to know

Good news for those that control which lawsuits go forward.

Lawyers in Love, Jackson Browne, 1983

Am I the only one who hears the screams
And the strangled cries of lawyers in love?


More than this, you know there’s nothing

More than This, Roxy Music in 1982

I could feel at the time
There was no way of knowing
Fallen leaves in the night
Who can say where they’re blowing?

As free as the wind
Hopefully learning
Why the sea on the tide
Has no way of turning?

More than this, you know there is nothing
More than this, tell me one thing
More than this, there is nothing

It was fun for a while
There was no way of knowing
Like a dream in the night
Who can say where we’re going?

No care in the world
Maybe I’m learning
Why the sea on the tide
Has no way of turning?

More than this, you know there is nothing
More than this, tell me one thing
More than this, now there is nothing

More than this, nothing
More than this
More than this, nothing


There was I – many times a fool

Ain’t no room on board for the insincere.

You’re my witness,
I’m your mutineer.


Meet the new boss, Same as the old boss

It’s okay to get fooled.

Once.

It wasn’t just your franchisor. It’s all of them.

Zig Ziglar said that each person knows 250 people.

You didn’t know then. You know now.

Don’t hide your light.
