- T-Bone Burnett

The record business is dangerous to the health of bands and individuals,

That's not the problem.
- T-Bone Burnett

The hatred that's so bad in this country today,

write down and sing back in the Civil War.
- T-Bone Burnett

Thus honesty is attained.

but there is also compassion in heartfelt empathy.

is now in my life causes an ever greater abundance
to flow in my direction.

even away from the attentions of those
with whom they are most bonded.

Conversations with God are very different
from the usual nature of prayer.

but one mustn't misuse it.

our loss, our secret hopes our love -
everything that moves us most deeply.

and potential hazards also escalate.
