„I want to make people feel better, whether it’s myself, or a friend, or whoever.“

— Zooey Deschanel American actress, musician, and singer-songwriter 1980
Context: I think a lot of what motivates me songwriting-wise is — this might sound silly — but, when I listen to a song that I love, it kind of makes me feel better. I think that’s the impetus behind everything I write; I want to make people feel better, whether it’s myself, or a friend, or whoever. I don’t know how to say this without sounding corny or banal, but I know a lot of people who are very hard on themselves. So this is sort of a cheerleading lullaby. On her song "Me and You" on Volume Two (2010), in an interview with Evan Schlansky in " On Record : Zooey Deschanel of She & Him http://www.americansongwriter.com/2010/03/on-record-zooey-deschanel-of-she-him/" at American Songwriter (18 March 2010).

„What, in the name of common-sense, had I to do with any better society than I had always lived in?“

— Nathaniel Hawthorne American novelist and short story writer (1804 – 1879) 1804 - 1864
Context: What, in the name of common-sense, had I to do with any better society than I had always lived in? It had satisfied me well enough. My pleasant bachelor-parlor, sunny and shadowy, curtained and carpeted, with the bedchamber adjoining... my evening at the billiard club, the concert, the theatre, or at somebody's party, if I pleased - what could be better than all this? Was it better to hoe, to mow, to toil and moil amidst the accumulations of a barnyard; to be the chambermaid of two yoke of oxen and a dozen cows; to eat salt beef, and earn it with the sweat of my brow, and thereby take the tough morsel out of some wretch's mouth, into whose vocation I had thrust myself?
