„The first time that I went to the United States was in 1974... I was 20 years old. America was in crisis. The dollar was at a low. The Watergate scandal had already erupted. And I still remember this vision I had of New York, which was a huge, fascinating city, dirty and violent. And I’ve been to the U. S. regularly, but what impresses me most in this large nation is its capacity to overcome hardship and return to the heights.“

—  François Hollande, As quoted in "Exclusive: President François Hollande Talks Syria, Spies and Secrets With TIME" http://time.com/4936/exclusive-france-president-francois-hollande-time/ (5 February 2014), by Catherine Mayer, Time.

„It's odd but even when I was a kid, I would write about "old and other times" as though I had a lot of years behind me.“

—  David Bowie British musician, actor, record producer and arranger 1947 - 2016
Context: It's odd but even when I was a kid, I would write about "old and other times" as though I had a lot of years behind me. Now I do, so there is a difference in the weight of memory. When you're young, you're still "becoming", now at my age I am more concerned with "being". And not too long from now I'll be driven by "surviving", I'm sure. I kind of miss that "becoming" stage, as most times you really don't know what's around the corner. Now, of course, I've kind of knocked on the door and heard a muffled answer. Nevertheless, I still don't know what the voice is saying, or even what language it's in.
