They give us those nice bright colours,
Give us the greens of summers,
Makes you think all the world's a sunny day,
Oh, yeah, I got a Nikon camera,
I love to take a photograph,
So Mama, don't take my Kodachrome away.“
„Oh, baby don't give up on us.
I know your heart is full of doubt,
You don't need to be without
These loving arms.I'll hold you through your darkest hour
I'll be using all my power,
So I can reach you.
Oh my love, don't give up on us.“
— Sarah McLachlan Canadian musician, singer, and songwriter 1968
Don't Give Up on Us
„Give us what belongs to us in peace, and if you don't give it to us in peace, we will take it by force.“

„People all over the world
Are the same everywhere I go,
I give in to this, I give in to that,
Every day it bothers me so,
Am I in a bad situation?
People taking me to the extreme,
Am I being used? I just need a clue,
I don't know which way to go.“
— Michael Jackson American singer, songwriter and dancer 1958 - 2009

Context: Every picture you give me I save, and every colour you use is so true to you. Every minute we spend I engrave, and every memory rethought is so new. There is trust that we must recognize. There is so much that we must learn to see and be, if we could only open our minds. Just grow with God and please be patient with me, and I will give you my life. "Everyday"
„I didn’t photograph people as an example of New York urban something or other. I don’t have a philosophy. I have a camera. I look into the camera and take pictures. My photographs are the tiniest part of what I see that could be photographed. They are fragments of endless possibilities.“
— Saul Leiter American photographer 1923 - 2013
„In another life, I would be your girl.
We'd keep all our promises,
Be us against the world.
In another life, I would make you stay,
So I don't have to say you were
The one that got away,
The one that got away.“
