Wednesday Wisdom from a hole in the ground

To live is to fly lyric quote Townes Van Zandt way of the renaissance man jim woodsWe all got holes to fill
And them holes are all that’s real
Some fall on you like a storm
Sometimes you dig your own
The choice is yours to make
Time is yours to take
Some dive into the sea
Some toil upon the stone
Well to live’s to fly, awe low and high
So shake the dust off of your wings
And the sleep out of your eye
-Townes Van Zandt, “To Live is to Fly”

The great folk singer/songwriter’s work is a bastion of heartfelt wisdom, pain, anguish and joy. In what is considered one of the best folk songs ever written, Van Zandt tells us that we all have problems, some come from the outside, and some are of our own making. The key to tackling these problems is to confront them in whatever manner best suits you, and to embrace the inevitable lows and highs that come along with being human. Now I ask you, what could be more insightful than that?

Wisdom about money, investing and life can be found anywhere.
