"come to the edge," he said.
they said, "we are afraid."
"come to the edge," he said.
they came. he pushed them.
and they flew.
what if i’d ask more of you than you’d ever ask of yourself, would you want to let me down?
we’re surrounded by little tasks, handed out by little people. what if we sought out the opposite?

the tiger, grown up in a flock of sheep, thinks he is a sheep.keep on going. in music, do as in your life in general. go with the media, go with the crowd, go with your peers. or pretend to be alternative. but don't be a connoisseur. not really. it's too laborious.
the sheep, grown up in a herd of tigers, thinks he is a tiger. only until the tigers know better.you might have worked it out for yourself yet that courage in life is even better than sex. if so, i congratulate you for that. if not, keep seeking. isn't this life the best life in the world? heaven is too boring, and hell is too dangerous.
extraordinary people with an extraordinary vision, do they have ordinary problems? no way. let's accept our "failures" and "mistakes" as extremely valuable and exciting experiences in our lives that give us a lot to learn about.
and to laugh.
my kids call me 'the tiger'. they learned that her father is a pet when playing with them, a pussy when handling narrow-minded people, and a beast when it comes to fighting the real enemy.you might have got it already, i welcome people with great character. you are welcome to be my friends. but in case you don't adhere to mutual respect, honesty, and the ability for peacemaking, please leave my page without making noise. i don't play your games, i make my own rules.
why not share a simple positive rule in life: we always will win, whatever the outcome. if you don't agree, guess what? i win.
please understand that i do value my time as i do yours. don't ask me for recommendations out of the blue. you are always invited to join some of the 100+ groups i created and find a wealth of connected and featured artists with an enormous broad range of genres and styles. you even can enjoy a plethora of specific radio stations i created. please don't expect me to follow all the links i get each and every day. i acknowledge your good intention, but i have my own agenda.
nothing i said here is meant personally. but in case you do understand it personally ... you probably should.
what i like most? you guess.
even better than music.

i don't know anything about music. in my line you don't have to.
i'm going to know everything about music. in my life i have to.
a great person knows of his or her greatness long before anyone else does.

making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that's creativity.
trying to explain music is like trying to dance architecture.
music is your own experience, your thoughts, your wisdom. if you don't live it, it won't come out of your horn.
the effects of good music are not just because it's new; on the contrary music strikes us more the more familiar we are with it.
—johann wolfgang von goethe
if you develop an ear for sounds that are musical it is like developing an ego. you begin to refuse sounds that are not musical and that way cut yourself off from a good deal of experience.
if this word "music" is sacred and reserved for eighteenth and nineteenth century instruments, we can substitute a more meaningful term: organization of sound.
my music is best understood by children and animals.
nothing separates the generations more than music. by the time a child is eight or nine, he has developed a passion for his own music that is even stronger than his passions for procrastination and weird clothes.
rock music in its lyrics often talks ahead of the time about what's going on in the country.

a guy walks up to me and asks, 'what's punk?' so i kick over a garbage can and say, 'that's punk!' so he kicks over the garbage can and says, 'that's punk?' and i say, 'no, that's trend.'

hell is full of musical amateurs.

military justice is to justice what military music is to music.
too many pieces of music finish too long after the end.
music is spiritual. the music business is not.
music is everybody's possession. it's only publishers who think that people own it.
there are more love songs than anything else. if songs could make you do something we'd all love one another.
when the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.
if music be the food of love, play on.
without music, life would be a mistake.
life can't be all bad when for ten dollars you can buy all the beethoven sonatas and listen to them for ten years.

one last word of mine before some higher spirits take over.
without knowing you, i bet the music you are listening to (with some exceptions of course), is contemporary popular. but try to find this tag on last.fm ... and despite the fact that it's that simple and true, most of you try to label their music with a bunch of so-called genre and style pigeonholes, some of them pure media- and industry-induced zero-meaning concepts, or, helplessly, 'icelandic', 'female vocalist' etc... i know that our musical education sucked. but nevertheless, you believe, if you call a kind of music 'chillout' or 'new age' or 'world' or 'emo' or even 'alternative', 'electronic', 'ambient, 'experimental', 'gothic', 'black metal' and 'japanese', it is. no, it is not. the music is nothing but music. every genius musician knows.
and now for my point. most of you call the music i'm listening to "Contemporary Classical". isn't this an über-label for a broad spectrum of music which is mostly not classical and often not even contemporary ... why pigeonhole the very different eras, epochs, genres, styles and forms of art music of the whole last 1,000 years just as one thing ... called "classical"? if that makes sense, using the term "contemporary popular" is only a logical conclusion for a very diversified range of musical genres. for most people, their favorite music only exists since a couple of years or decades, why do we consider it so important that we need to argue about it so much? music is our life, not our death. stay awesome.
i'm an engineer, designer, and business owner. i used to work as an author, user experience engineer, brand strategist, and creative director. i moved to mallorca in order to live the life of my dreams. at the moment, i focus on coaching german and swiss entrepreneurs and CEOs. success hasn't gone to my head, nor has the money changed me.

your playing small does not serve the world
our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. it is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. we ask ourselves, ‘who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous ?’ actually, who are you not to be ? you are a child of god. your playing small does not serve the world. there is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won’t feel insecure around you. we were born to make manifest the glory of god that is within us. it’s not just in some of us ; it’s in all of us. and when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. as we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

know your source of power
most think that nonviolence is not to fight. on the contrary, nonviolence is the strongest power. it conquers the power of violence. my creed of nonviolence is an extremely active force. it has no room for cowardice or even weakness. there is hope for a violent man to someday become nonviolent, but there is no hope for a coward.
—mohandās 'mahātmā' gāndhī
do it anyway
people are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered—forgive them anyway.
if you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives—be kind anyway.
if you are successful you will win some false friends and true enemies—succeed anyway.
if you are honest and frank, people may cheat you—be honest and frank anyway.
what you spend years building, some could destroy overnight—build anyway.
if you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous—be happy anyway.
the good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow—do good anyway.
give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough—give the world the best you've got anyway.
you see, in the final analysis, it is between you and god—it was never between you and them anyway.
never consider yourself the cause of the results of your activities, and never be attached to not doing your duty.
