Quote of the Day:

"I like to think that as a grand romantic, it’s a very high and low type of thing with maybe a little in the middle. Because if you’re the guy showing up at the doorstep with a bunch of flowers and all those things and you’re willing to write a song, then you also have to be willing to fail and acknowledge the super-low moments." — Nate Ruess
