Music and Lyrics

Today was my first time volunteering at Karma Kitchen and I absolutely loved it....we had about 126 guests come in for lunch today...I got the opportunity to serve them and meet some really wonderful people, who by the end of the day became my friends...

Today's theme was HARMONY and we asked our guests:
A line from a song or song title that they would like to share with us....some guests shared song lyrics, while some others shared really nice thoughts/quotes

Here are some comments from our guests:


  • Bach (B ACB): Not the most elegant string of 4 notes, but every time I find it, whether in Bach or Schoenberg, it makes me happy, like I've found a secret door in the corner of a garden somewhere and it makes me happy
  • Speak happiness. Sad enough without your woes [Bob Marley]
  • Part of me laughs, part of me cries. Part of my wants to question why. Why is there joy and why is there pain? Why is there sunshine and the rain? One day you're here, next you're gone. No matter what, we must go on. Just keep the faith and let love lead the way [The Spice Girls]
  • Here comes sunshine
  • Just up in the club, just broke up. Doing my own little thing
  • Only heaven knows, so the story is told. His hat seemed to me, like an old halo. And though his wings, they were never seen. I thought he walked on water
  • A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history [Gandhi]
  • If you have a nightmare, it doesn't mean you stop dreaming [Jill Scott]
  • Out beyond the area of rightdoing and wrongdoing, there is a field. I'll meet you there... where words make no sense. Even the words "each other" have no meaning. - paraphrased from Rumi
  • The live music was beautiful today
  • When my world is shaking, heaven stands. When my heart is breaking, I'm always in your hands
  • Can't believe how strange it is to be anything at all
  • Now we rise. We are everywhere
  • May all that we do flow from us like a river - no forcing and no holding back.
  • you are all beautiful in your service
  • And the Butthole Surfers said, "It is better to regret somethig you did, than something you didn't do" Yeah, we were young... and we, looking, looking... looking for that deep kick...well seen 'em come, seen e'm go
  • So toss away stuff you don't need in the end, but keep what's important and know who's your friend
