Reading Between the Lines

Question of the Day: What song inspires you? Why? Is it the rhythm, the lyrics, or something else special about it?

I’d like you to me Mr. Duke. He’s a nice guy….been hanging out with me for a good while now. He lets me tell him anything I want. Very good secret keeper, I must say.

Mr. Duke is my Quotes Book. He’s filled with a bunch of treasures and jewels in the form of words. Quotes, beliefs, inside jokes, famous sayings by famous people, song lyrics, Facebook statuses, you name it.

Whenever I’m lonely or just need a pick-me-up of inspiration, I turn to Mr. Duke. Because he’s just that cool. :)

Today I’d like to share little tidbits of entertainment, inspiration, and insight that I’ve picked up over the past couple of years. I figured this was appropriate especially since 2010 is slowly saying farewell to us. It’s nice going back and seeing what I’ve written and added to Mr. Duke. =)

I hope you enjoy and that you find something to laugh over, smile about, and ultimately think of throughout the day. :) Which line is your favorite?

    It occurred to me at 33
    Life without hope is a tragedy
    People stare at the stars,
    And wish for the moon
    They reach so high
    And quit too soon

    From “At 33”, a song that my wife Jilda and I wrote.

    Ohhh! I love it! Would you believe I have a book very similar to duke? Hehe, it’s mainly song lyrics and magazine clippings tho.

    I also like to trawl through the website “” for stuffsies. You can find some really cool quotes that way too.

    Ahh, love. In fact, that earns a “<3 it.”

    And I do love that sexy hamburger one.

    Oky, you must tell us: why Mr Duke? How did you come up with that name?

  8. my fave here is the one about greatest fears. and that facebook status is both sad and true.

    this was a great post luv!

    many songs inspire me and that’s mainly based on the lyrics.

  9. Haha, good question. Most important, it is simply because the text printed on the notebook is Duke. Also I figured the definition of duke was also fitting: noble and high ranked. I suppose this notebook lives up to that definition and the name. :D

    I love the Julie Andrews quote in Mr. Duke :) A quote book is a great idea – I might start one, to keep me motivated on hard days!

  13. Lydia K says:

    I always wanted to have a book like Mr Duke but never got around to it. It’s so fabulous!

  14. Tessa Conte says:

    Soo…. Roland has chosen not to choose a prize, so you have second choice… Amalia chose Box 1, so you can have either Box 2 or 3… let me know?
