„When you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.“

Preface
The Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze (1934)
Contexto: The most solid advice for a writer is this, I think: Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.

„My music is alive and it's about the living and the dead, about good and evil. It's angry, yet it's real because it knows it's angry.“

—  Charles Mingus American jazz double bassist, composer and bandleader 1922 - 1979

An Open Letter To Miles Davis (1955)
Contexto: I think my own way. I don't think like you and my music isn't meant just for the patting of feet and going down backs. When and if I feel gay and carefree, I write or play that way. When I feel angry I write or play that way — or when I'm happy, or depressed, even.
Just because I'm playing jazz I don't forget about me. I play or write me, the way I feel, through jazz, or whatever. Music is, or was, a language of the emotions. If someone has been escaping reality, I don't expect him to dig my music, and I would begin to worry about my writing if such a person began to really like it. My music is alive and it's about the living and the dead, about good and evil. It's angry, yet it's real because it knows it's angry.

„Most of the laugh tracks on television were recorded in the early 1950’s. These days, most of the people you hear laughing are dead.“

—  Chuck Palahniuk, livro Lullaby

Contexto: The muffled thunder of dialogue comes through the walls, then a chorus of laughter. Then more thunder. Most of the laugh tracks on television were recorded in the early 1950s. These days, most of the people you hear laughing are dead.
