„Where There is a will
there is a will
to search and discover
a better day
Where a positive heart
is all you need
to rise beyond
Where young minds grow
and respect each other
based on their deeds
and not their color
when times are dim
say as I say
"Where there's a will
there's a way!“
Forrás: The Rose That Grew from Concrete

„In the big house,
Where the sun lives,
With the walls so white and blue.
In the red soil,
All the green grows.
And the winds blow across your face.
They blow across your heart.
It's the time of the turning and there's something stirring outside.
It's the time of turning and we'd better learn to say our goodbyes.“
— Peter Gabriel English singer-songwriter, record producer and humanitarian 1950

Song lyrics, OVO (2000)
„And so what remains in our lives? What remains in this whole, entire world to do? And like I was saying, where does Mr. Mind take you and put you every time? Where does that mind place you? It places you every time at a place that has nothing to do with the outrageous that has nothing, has nothing to do with the with the beautiful, has nothing to do with the incredible, has nothing to with anything except darkness, darkness, darkness, darkness, darkness, darkness, darkness. And this is where the mind puts you.“

„The chain of young life is broken,
The journey is ended, the hour has struck, it is time to leave,
Time to go where there is no future,
No past, no eternity, no years;
Where there are no expectations, no passions,
No bitter tears, no fame, no honour;
Where memory sleeps deeply
And the heart in its narrow coffin home
Does not feel the worm gnawing it.“
— Mikhail Lermontov Russian writer, poet and painter 1814 - 1841

„Where the light is, and each thing clear,
Separate from all others, standing in its place,
I drink the time and touch whatever's near, And hope for day when the whole world has that face:
For what assures her present every year?
In dark accidents the mind's sufficient grace.“
