Hold Still

People tell me I sing the words "love" and "hunger" like no one else. Well, everything I know is wrapped up in those two words.  You've got to have something to eat and a little love in your life before you can hold still for any damn body's sermon on how to behave.

-- Billie Holiday (1915-1959), jazz singer and songwriter, Lady Sings The Blues (1956), p 201
