"Have you ever heard the riddle of the man, the bridge, and the boxes? The man had three boxes, each weighed five pounds. The man weighed 190. The bridge could only hold 200 pounds. How did the man cross the bridge with all his boxes?He juggled. He always kept one box in the air.The bridge is life. The boxes hold our feelings--our love, our joy, our pain, our loss. Everyone is crossing the bridge with more weight then we can bear. So we juggle."
"I'd like to say people can change anything they want to; and that means everything in the world. People are running about following their little tracks. I am one of them. But we've all gotta stop... just stop following our own little mouse trail. People can do anything; this is something that I'm beginning to learn. People are out there doing bad things to each other; it's because they've been dehumanized. It's time to take that humanity back into the centre of the ring and follow that for a time. Greed... it ain't going anywhere! They should have that on a big billboard across Times Square. Think on that. Without people you're nothing." Joe Strummer
