„We were walking
Just the other day.
It was so hot outside,
You could fry an egg.
Remember you were talking,
I watched as sweat ran down your face.
Reached up and I caught it at your chin,
Licked my fingertips.“
— Dave Matthews American singer-songwriter, musician and actor 1967

„Extinguish my sight, and I can still see you;
plug up my ears, and I can still hear;
even without feet I can walk toward you,
and without mouth I can still implore.
Break off my arms, and I will hold you
with my heart as if it were a hand;
strangle my heart, and my brain will still throb;
and should you set fire to my brain,
I still can carry you with my blood.“
— Rainer Maria Rilke, livro The Book of Hours
Translated by Annemarie S. Kidder
Das Stunden-Buch (The Book of Hours) (1905)
„Do you think that you're beautiful?
Inside or outside? Mmmmm… outside I don't think about that too much because I realise that's all very superficial. I'm more concerned about inside, and inside I think I'm alright… I'm OK inside. I don't think I'm perfect and I don't call myself beautiful but I'm definitely not ugly inside. I've got friends who aren't that so called pleasant to look at but inside I think they're beautiful.“
