What Do You Believe?

I believe that listening to audiobooks counts as reading.

I believe in everything until it’s disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it’s in your mind. Who’s to say that dreams and nightmares aren’t as real as the here and now?   ~John Lennon

The beach gives a feeling,
An earthy feeling,
I believe in the faith that grows,
And the four right chords can make me cry.  ~Third Eye Blind

I believe in Daylight Savings Time.

Well, I believe in the soul, the cock, the pussy, the small of a woman’s back, the hanging curve ball, high fiber, good scotch, that the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent, overrated crap. I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days.  ~Crash Davis

I believe I have such a wonderful family because God looked down on me and realized I would need some help through this life.

I believe that everything happens for a reason.

I believe in the importance of good grammar.
