„I usually stay away from being carried away,
But one day I saw a silver horse.“

—  Yoko Ono

"Silver Horse" on Season of Glass (1981).
Kontext: I usually stay away from being carried away,
But one day I saw a silver horse.
I thought he might take me to that somewhere high,
I thought he might take me to that deep blue sky. I came to realize that the horse had no wings.
No wings, well, it wasn't so bad, you know. I learnt to travel the world around
And run on the ground in the morning.
And that's the story of a wandering soul,
A story of a dreamer.

„Wild horses couldn't drag me away
Wild, wild horses, we'll ride them some day…“

—  Mick Jagger British rock musician, member of The Rolling Stones 1943

Lyrics
Kontext: I know I've dreamed you, a sin and a lie
I have my freedom but I don't have much time
Faith has been broken, tears must be cried
Let's do some living, after we die
Wild horses couldn't drag me away
Wild, wild horses, we'll ride them some day…

Wild, wild horses, couldn't drag me away.“

—  Mick Jagger British rock musician, member of The Rolling Stones 1943

The things you wanted, I bought them for you
Graceless lady, you know who I am
You know I can't let you slide through my hands
Wild horses couldn't drag me away
Wild, wild horses, couldn't drag me away.

„We finally saw the sea, the horizonless sea – how odd for a mountaindweller. We saw the beautiful boats that sail on it. It is too inviting, one feels carried away, one would leave to see the whole world.“

—  Gustave Courbet French painter 1819 - 1877

Quote from Courbet's letter to his parents (1841); as quoted in Image of the Sea: Oceanic Consciousness in the Romantic Century, Howard F. Isham, publisher: Peter Lang, 2004, Chapter 'Waterworlds', p. 307
