If I won the lottery

If I won the lottery I would rent billboards and put phrases on them. No photos or decoration. Just the words themselves because words have a beauty and power all of their own, and short phrases, like snatches of overheard conversation are a doorway to the imagination.

Like this perhaps :-

The things that pass for knowledge I can't understand.

by Steely dan

Or this :-

And you take on the dreams of the ones who have slept here.

by Tom Waits.

Or even this :-

Just like dyin'. 'Cept you can still feel the shame.

By the Black Keys.

Life is never dull when you can imagine.
