„True happiness, we are told, consists in getting out of one's self; but the point is not only to get out — you must stay out; and to stay out you must have some absorbing errand.“

—  Henry James, Roderick Hudson http://www.gutenberg.org/files/176/176.txt (1875), ch. I: Rowland.

„There's a bluebird in my heart that wants to get out
but I'm too tough for him,
I say, stay in there, I'm not going to let anybody see you.“

—  Charles Bukowski American writer 1920 - 1994
Context: there's a bluebird in my heart that wants to get out but I'm too tough for him, I say, stay in there, I'm not going to let anybody see you. ... I only let him out at night sometimes when everybody's asleep. ... he's singing a little in there, I haven't quite let him die ... and it's nice enough to make a man weep, but I don't weep, do you? Bluebird
