„We're all damaged in our own way. Nobody's perfect. I think we're all somewhat screwy. Every single one of us.“

—  Johnny Depp American actor, film producer, and musician 1963
Context: I do have an affinity for damaged people, in life, in roles. I don't know why. We're all damaged in our own way. Nobody's perfect. I think we are all somewhat screwy, every single one of us. Quoted in Bernard Weintraub, "Playboy Interview: Johnny Depp," Playboy (May 2004)

„When you reach for a star
Only angels are there
And it's not very far
Just a step on a stair
Take a look at those clowns
And the tricks that they play
In the circus of life
Life is bitter and gay There are clowns in the night
Clowns everywhere
See how they run
Run from despair …“

—  Kate Bush British recording artist; singer, songwriter, musician and record producer 1958
