„Everything I've learned in life I've learned either by doing it or watching the changes other people go through.“

—  Cass Elliot American singer 1941 - 1974
Context: Everything I've learned in life I've learned either by doing it or watching the changes other people go through. And when you're famous, you don't get to meet people — because they want you to like them when they present themselves to you, present the best sides of themselves, and you don't see the real people. Which is why I don't really go anywhere. And when I do, I put on my silly face and do what they expect me to do. Actually, I never do what they expect me to do. It's the only way I could go on doing what I have to do. I do whatever I… you know, I didn't even comb my hair today. I didn't know we were taking pictures but when I found out, it didn't change my mind any.

„Crossing that bridge,
With lessons I've learned.
Playing with fire,
And not getting burned.“

—  Seal (musician) British singer-songwriter 1963
Context: Crossing that bridge, With lessons I've learned. Playing with fire, And not getting burned. I may not know what you're going through. But time is the space, Between me and you. Life carries on... it goes on. "Prayer For The Dying"
