Stay home with me / You are the reason I am here

tfw your favourite band’s lyrics echo one of your favourite quotes, from one of your favourite books, that you first read on the Megabus north, when going to see that band over ten years ago…

People who never doubt
Are the ones I’m worried about
People who never doubt
Are the ones who carry the clout.

Maxïmo Park – The Reason I Am Here

“The ones who are not afraid are those who don’t know anything, aren’t they? They have no inkling of the values which must not be harmed, the threads which must not be broken, the threads which will link people together, threads which will bind together each link in the chain of generations. Those who do know this become cautious, afraid of doing any harm. They’re circles, aren’t they? There are those who trample under foot, tear down. Those who have an inkling of eternal values, of a higher meaning, become afraid; they proceed cautiously, they are sensitive and respect the richness of existence. They seek it out.”
