Life Lessons, Sondheim-Style#1
Posted: 4/26/08 at 3:51pm
I started compiling this listof life lessons told through Sondheim show lyrics during English yesterday, and I'd love to see your guys' additions.

1. Careful the things you say, children will listen.
2. Everybody's got the right to be happy.
3. Everybody ought to have a maid.
4. Someone is on your side; no one is alone.
5. A person should celebrate everything passing by.
6. Nice is different than good.
7. Don't be afraid that it won't be perfect. The only thing to be afraid of, really, is that it won't be.
8. You gotta get a gimmick!
9. Pretty isn't beautiful, pretty is what changes.
10. It's the little things you do together that make perfect relationships.

What have I missed? I'm pretty sure I've only scratched the surface here.
That's the sorrowful precis. It's very messy.

11. Anything you do, let it come from you. Then it will be new.

That one's my personal favorite.

I'm a member of a FaceBook group called "My Love-Life is F*CKed Up and I Blame Stephen Sondheim". Check it out sometime! It's not quite what you're asking about, but it's quite hilarious. XD

"You're so nice.
You're not good, you're not bad,
you're just nice.
I'm not good,
I'm not not nice,
I'm just right.
I'm the Witch.
You're the world.
I'm the hitch.
I'm what no one believes,
I'm the Witch.
You're a liars and thieves,
Like his father.
Like his son will be, too-
Oh,why bother?
You'll just do what you do."

"Witches can be right, Giants can be good.
You decide what's right you decide what's good"

Or heck...all of "No One Is Alone".
Experience live theater. Experience paintings. Experience books. Live, look and listen like artists! ~ imaginethis

Here's one that's total bull****:

"There are heroes in the world, princes and heroes in the world, and one of them will save us, wait and see"
