„It's like a supply and demand thing. It's like 'Well, this is what they want me to do, this is what they want to hear. So I'll do more of this, cuz this is great… and they love me.' Suddenly people start giving you money as well. So then you've got money and you get used to this lifestyle. And you don't wanna take any risks 'cause they've got you by the balls, and you've got all these little things that you've bought, or you're attached to. And you start spending all this money… And that's how they get ya!“
— Thom Yorke English musician, philanthropist and singer-songwriter 1968
„The sex you're trading up for
What you hope is love
Is just another thing that
He'll be careless of.
But though there are caveats galore,
You've only got to love him more —
And you do;
You really do.
Even when it's all too clear.“

Context: Oh, come on, you've got to use your flow.
You know what it's like, and you know you want to go.
Don't drive too slowly.
Don't put your blues where your shoes should be.
Don't put your foot on the heartbrake.

But I love you.

Thinking of you.

You treat me badly;
I love you madly.
You've really got a hold on me.
You've really got a hold on me, baby.“

Song lyrics, With The Miracles
„Christian life is action: not a speculating, not a debating, but a doing. One thing, and only one, in this world has eternity stamped upon it. Feelings pass; resolves and thoughts pass; opinions change. What you have done lasts — lasts in you. Through ages, through eternity, what you have done for Christ, that, and only that, you are.“
— Frederick William Robertson British writer and theologian 1816 - 1853

„You know how every now and then, you have a moment where your whole life stretches out ahead of you like a forked road, and even as you choose one gritty path you've got your eyes on the other the whole time, certain that you're making a mistake.“
