A Little East Coast Swing


I found this aluminum trinket to liven up the kitchen. I wanted to share it with you with a thoughtful quote or lyric of some sort. So I searched for “heart quotes” and turned up lots of Barracuda, Crazy on You, What About Love references. Not exactly what I had in mind, although I do like Ann and Nancy Wilson just fine. But I digress.


I got more specific with my keywords, “quotes about the heart” I had to take a screen shot to share:

Processed with RookieYep, that’s Boyz II Men sandwiched logically between Dostoyevsky and Hawthorne. Of course I went with the obvious choice:

You just don’t understand how much I love you do you? I’m here for you.

-End of the Road, Boys II Men

Do you have a favorite 90’s hip hop song? Do you find creative inspiration from literature or music?

    Pretty trinket. I often search for a quote and when I find something I like, it turns out to be someone more in the modern pop age than a learned scholarly type. Hey, if the quote fits, use it, right?

    Love your kitchen trinket style and taste in quotage, Sandra.

    I saw the Boyz on their reunion tour just a mile or two from the end of my road at the big daily. They still had it. I did Shawn’s a cappella judging on “The Sing-Off,” too, don’t you?

    Reading your quotes, old Fyodor got my brain stirring. Would I rather be a fool with a heart and no sense or a fool with sense and no heart? At times in my life I’ve been both but now I’m no fool at all … Let’s write a song with that line, sis. ❤ 🙂
