    I love you,

    Not only for what

    You have made of yourself,

    But for what

    You are making of me.

    I love you

    For the part of me

    That you bring out;

    I love you

    For putting your hand

    Into my heaped-up heart

    And passing over

    All the foolish, weak things

    That you can’t help

    Dimly seeing there,

    And for drawing out

    Into the light

    All the beautiful belongings

    That no one else had looked

    Quite far enough to find.

    I love you because you

    Are helping me to make

    Of the lumber of my life

    Not a tavern

    But a temple;

    Out of the works

    Of my every day

    Not a reproach

    But a song.

    I love you

    Because you have done

    More than any creed

    Could have done

    To make me good

    And more than any fate

    Could have done

    To make me happy.

    You have done it

    Without a touch,

    Without a word,

    By being yourself.

    my favorite poem is "the square root of 3"

    I’m sure that I will always be

    A lonely number like root three

    The three is all that’s good and right,

    Why must my three keep out of sight

    Beneath the vicious square root sign,

    I wish instead I were a nine

    For nine could thwart this evil trick,

    with just some quick arithmetic

    I know I’ll never see the sun, as 1.7321

    Such is my reality, a sad irrationality

    When hark! What is this I see,

    Another square root of a three

    As quietly co-waltzing by,

    Together now we multiply

    To form a number we prefer,

    Rejoicing as an integer

    We break free from our mortal bonds

    With the wave of magic wands

    Our square root signs become unglued

    Your love for me has been renewed

    I loved when Bush came out and said, "We are losing the war against drugs." You know what that implies? There's a war being fought, and the people on drugs are winning it.

    o Queens Theatre Late Show (1993)

    "God put [dinosaur fossils] here to test our faith!"... I think God put you here to test my faith, dude. Does that bother anybody else, the idea that God might be ******* with our heads? I have trouble sleeping with that knowledge.

    The whole image is that eternal suffering awaits anyone who questions God's infinite love. That's the message we're brought up with, isn't it? Believe or die! "Thank you, forgiving Lord, for all those options."

    Billy Joel

    Videos destroyed the vitality of rock and roll. Before that, music said, "Listen to me." Now it says, "Look at me."
