—Hal Riney, interview from the documentary Art & Copy (August 2009)


329. Quotes: Your Dad on Morals and Influence

91. Living Life

Don’t just listen to music, connect with it.

Don’t just read a book, consume it.

Don’t just say a prayer, answer someone else’s.

Don’t just dance, groove.

Don’t just look at paintings, partake of creativity.

Don’t just tell people what to do, lead them and invite them into their destiny.

Don’t just live today, make today come alive.
