    WOW!!!!! Thanks so much for the ideas and please----keep them coming! I am picturing a quilt or quilty-like paper collage (not sure which) where each block is inspired by a different quote--- one starting with each letter of the alphabet, excluding two, probably X and Z---so I have 24, set 4 x 6. Been quilting for about 25 years and want to try something different, so the paper collage idea may win out!

    Great motto to live by. And I am not talking about medicine. ;)

    Teacherbailey, MY All time favorite was 'I found my Thrill on Blueberry Hill'. 'I can't stop loving you' is another one I still enjoy.
    The 'Green, Green Grass of Home' has always been a favorite of mine.
    'May I have this dance with you?' 'Suspicious Minds' by Elvis.
    These are just a few to add to your list. Eiltcoq.

    You must remember this, a kiss is still a kiss
    a sigh is still a sigh
    The fundamental things apply as time goes by

    There are great patterns for bottles and jars and I am nursing an idea to include lyrics from Jim Croce's Time in a Bottle. I am also enamored with Rod Stewart's Have I Told You Lately That I Love You? Both have vivid lyrics

    On a very old "single" of Tiny Kangaroo down sport, there is a song called Two little boys. It makes me cry everytime I hear it. Lyrics - two little boys had two little toys, one was a horse of tin - I can't remember anymore of them but then they go off to war and are on different sides and run into each other again and he lets his friend live. But my very favorite is "Gentle on My Mind" by Glen Campbell. A real 60's song.It's knowing that your door is always open and your path is free to walk, that makes me want to leave my sleeping bag rolled up and stashed behind your couch. Thanks Carreen

    Peace of Mind by Boston

    "I understand about indecision , and I don't care about gettin behind. People living in competition, all I want is to have some peace of mind."

    This is my all-time favorite rock n roll song. it is about how so many people are caught up in climbing the corporate ladder that they forgot how to live and enjoy their lives.

    Rock N Roll Band by Boston

    :Rock N Roll band, everybody's waiting.
    Get crazy, anticipating,
    Love and music, Play, play play!"

    This is a song that they wrote and sung when they were beginning to gain popularity. It was about how they felt as they became famous and people wanted to hear them.

    One of my all-time favorites is Mountains by Lonestar. the chorus is:
    I've been around and I've noticed that
    Walking is easy when the road is flat
    But those danged old hills will get you every time.
    When you can't lean on no one else
    That's when you find yourself.
    The Good Lord gave us Mountains, so we could learn how to climb.

    "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right"


    It ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
    If’in you don’t know by now
    An' it ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
    It’ll never do some how.
    When your rooster crows at the break of dawn
    Look out your window and I'll be gone
    You're the reason I'm trav'lin' on
    Don't think twice, it's all right

    It ain't no use in turnin' on your light, babe
    That light I never knowed
    An' it ain't no use in turnin' on your light, babe
    I'm on the dark side of the road
    but I wish there was somethin' you would do or say
    To try and make me change my mind and stay
    We never did too much talkin' anyway
    So don't think twice, it's all right

    It ain't no use in callin' out my name, gal
    Like you never done before
    It ain't no use in callin' out my name, gal
    I can't hear you any more
    I'm a-thinkin' and a-wond'rin' walkin’ down the road
    I once loved a woman, a child I'm told
    I give her my heart but she wanted my soul
    But don't think twice, it's all right

    So long, Honey Babe
    Where I'm bound, I can't tell
    But Goodbye's too good a word, babe
    So I'll just say fare thee well
    I ain't sayin' you treated me unkind
    You could have done better but I don't mind
    You just kinda wasted my precious time
    But don't think twice, it's all right

    "Louie Louie" really defined the '60's. But we never knew the lyrics to the rest of it. We had to wait 'til the Internet was invented so we could find out what our song was all about!
    Not sure yet, that we actually KNOW! :-)

    Monday, Monday, can't trust that day.
    The Mamas and the Papas

    Goin' to Carolina in my mind. James Taylor

    Only the good die young. Billy Joel

    They say that these are not the best of times
    But they're the only times I've ever known.
    ......(some other lines are in there too)
    For we are always what our situations hand us
    It's either sadness or euphoria.

    ---from Summer Highland Falls, Billy Joel

    Nothing's gonna harm you, not while I'm around
    Nothing's gonna harm you, no sir, not while I'm around
    Demons are prowling everywhere, nowadays,
    I'll send 'em howling
    I don't care, I got ways

    ---Stephen Sondheim (from Sweeney Todd)

    At last my love has come along, my lonely nights are over and life is like a dream...Etta James "At Last"

    Oh she may be weary, young girls they do get weary, wearing that same old ragged dress, but when she gets weary try a little tenderness.... Ottis Redding " Try a Little Tenderness

    Can't remember who sings it - " God is great, beer is good and people are crazy !"
    Carole King was the first one that came to mind.
    Some great folk songs by Peter, Paul and Mary also come to mind.
