„So what are we saying?
Our Eden's a failure.
A made-up story to fit the picture-perfect world.
The one with "I do"s and "I love you."
And "we are made for each other."“

—  Sarah McLachlan Canadian musician, singer, and songwriter 1968

—  Leopold Stokowski British conductor 1882 - 1977

Addressing an audience at Carnegie Hall, as quoted in The New York Times (11 May 1967); often this is quoted without the humorous final sentence.
Contexto: A painter paints his pictures on canvas. But musicians paint their pictures on silence. We provide the music, and you provide the silence.

„Anyone can love a thing. That's as easy as putting a penny in your pocket.
But to love something. To know the flaws and love them too. That is rare and pure and perfect.“

—  Patrick Rothfuss, livro The Wise Man's Fear

Fonte: The Wise Man's Fear (2011)
Contexto: We love what we love. Reason does not enter into it. In many ways, unwise love is the truest love. Anyone can love a thing because. That's as easy as putting a penny in your pocket. But to love something despite. To know the flaws and love them too. That is rare and pure and perfect.
