„When maiden loves, she sits and sighs,
She wanders to and fro -
Unbidden tear-drops fill her eyes,
And to all questions she replies
With a sad "heigh ho!"“

—  W. S. Gilbert English librettist of the Gilbert & Sullivan duo 1836 - 1911

The Yeomen of the Guard (1888)

„When your mother has grown old
and with her so have you,
When that which once came easy
has at last become a burden,
When her loving, true eyes
no longer see life as once they did
When her weary feet
no longer want to wear her as she stands,
then reach an arm to her shoulder,
escort her gently, with happiness and passion
The hour will come, when you, crying,
must take her on her final walk.
And if she asks you, then give her an answer
And if she asks you again, listen!
And if she asks you again, take in her words
not impetuously, but gently and in peace!
And if she cannot quite understand you,
explain all to her gladly
For the hour will come, the bitter hour
when her mouth will ask for nothing more.“

—  Georg Runsky

Wenn deine Mutter alt geworden,
und älter du geworden bist,
wenn ihr, was früher leicht und mühlos,
nunmehr zur Last geworden ist,
wenn ihre lieben, treuen Augen,
nicht mehr wie einst ins Leben seh'n,
wenn ihre Füße, kraftgebrochen,
sie nicht mehr tragen woll'n mein Geh'n,
dann reich ihr deinen Arm zur Stütze,
geleite sie mit froher Lust,
die Stunde kommt, da du sie weinend
zum letzten Gang begleiten musst.
Und fragt sie dich, so gib ihr Antwort,
und fragt sie wieder, - sprich auch du,
und fragt sie nochmals, - steh' ihr Rede,
nicht ungestüm, in sanfter Ruh!
Und kann sie dich nicht recht verstehen,
erklär ihr alles frohbewegt,
die Stunde kommt, die bitt're Stunde,
da dich ihr Mund nach nichts mehr frägt.

"I wouldn't go for coffee with you."
"Listen - I wouldn't ask you."
"That," she replied, "is what makes you stupid.“

„You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She's not perfect—you aren't either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break—her heart. So don't hurt her, don't change her, don't analyze and don't expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she's not there.“

—  Bob Marley Jamaican singer, songwriter, musician 1945 - 1981
