„Jesus, lover of my soul,
let me to Thy bosom fly,
While the nearer waters roll,
while the tempest still is high.
Hide me, O my Savior, hide,
till the storm of life is past;
Safe into the haven guide;
O receive my soul at last.“
— Charles Wesley English Methodist and hymn writer 1707 - 1788

„Won't you look down upon me, Jesus,
You've got to help me make a stand.
You've just got to see me through another day.
My body's aching and my time is at hand
And I won't make it any other way.“
— James Taylor American singer-songwriter and guitarist 1948

„Lord, give me the capacity of never praying, spare me the insanity of all worship, let this temptation of love pass from me which would deliver me forever unto You. Let the void spread between my heart and heaven! I have no desire to people my deserts by Your presence, to tyrannize my nights by Your light, to dissolve my Siberias beneath Your sun.“
— Emil M. Cioran Romanian philosopher and essayist 1911 - 1995

Or if in the end
Love just falls apart.
Well then here's to our destruction.
Baby let me be your soul driver.“

We weren't lovers like that and besides it would still be all right.“
— Leonard Cohen Canadian poet and singer-songwriter 1934 - 2016
Context: When I left they were sleeping, I hope you run into them soon. Don't turn on the lights, you can read their address by the moon. And you won't make me jealous if I hear that they sweetened your night: We weren't lovers like that and besides it would still be all right. "Sisters of Mercy"
