I've been a lonesome cowboy up until last evening and was feeling quite a bit of solitude. While riding the train to Shibuya, I dreamed up a list of the best advice and most inspiring words that I've ever heard.
1) "If you don't have anything, they can't take anything from you." - Brian Robinson, manager of the YSO
2) "Be reckless." - Prof. John Szwed, my Avant Garde Jazz and Film Noir professor from Yale, a super accomplished academic who researches all things hip.
3) "C'mon, it'll be an adventure." - Anonymous. I can't remember who said this to me, but with the "A" word, they easily enticed me into doing something that I didn't want to do.
4) "You're practically glowing." Shivon Zilis upon learning a month ago that I had plans to jump ship and head to Tokyo.
I'll keep this list going as I recall more wise words.
What are the most valuable words that you've ever heard? Please, add them to the comments section!!!!!!
I'm getting f'clempt. Talk amongst yourselves....
