Never underestimate how much assistance, how much satisfaction, how much comfort, how much soul and transcendence there might be in a well-made taco and a cold bottle of beer.

I've known personally every President since Jack Kennedy and I can honestly say that Ronald Reagan was the worst, but he'd have made a hell of a King.

Tip O'Neil
Lol...that awesome. Much to Tip’s dismay, It’s just such a shame his BFF, the murdering coward Teddy Kennedy didn’t get the nod. Would have been a shining example of everything a Commander in Chief should aspire to be. At least he got to ‘serve’ MA for 30 plus years tho...he was so very deserving of the position
The point I was trying to make with those two quotes is that those guys didn't agree on much, but got along well and compromised successfully, because they had a "6 o'clock rule", after 6 they were just a couple Irishmen having a beer. Proof that they didn't hate each other, they stayed in touch after leaving office. I would say they are great role models for today.

Life is a lot like jazz. It's best when you improvise.

Music is a necessity. After food, air, water and warmth, music is the next necessity of life.

You take all the time to write a song: you have to let it ooze on out by its natural self and that is pretty time consuming. Then you teach it to the band so everybody gets all the parts. Then you rehearse it and road test it, and all that. Then you get to the studio and there is a new guy in the band who calls himself the producer, right? Huh. He either makes it or breaks it usually before nightfall.

What we're thinking about is a peaceful planet. We're not thinking about anything else. We're not thinking about any kind of power. We're not thinking about any kind of struggles. We're not thinking about revolution or war or any of that. That's not what we want. Nobody wants to get hurt. Nobody wants to hurt anybody. We would all like to be able to live an uncluttered life. A simple life, a good life. And think about moving the whole human race ahead a step, or a few steps.

--Jerry Garcia
