„I was in the machine. My whole life. Then the machine coughed and spat me out. So I thought, OK, if I'm out, I'm out. All the way out. I was a little angry and it was probably an immature reaction. But I got used to it.“

—  Lee Child, kniha One Shot

—  Anaïs Nin, kniha House of Incest

House of Incest (1936)

„I do think I go out of my way to be a very normal person and I just find it frustrating that people think that I'm some kind of weirdo reclusive that never comes out into the world.“

—  Kate Bush British recording artist; singer, songwriter, musician and record producer 1958

MOJO interview (2005)
Kontext: I do think I go out of my way to be a very normal person and I just find it frustrating that people think that I'm some kind of weirdo reclusive that never comes out into the world. Y'know, I'm a very strong person and I think that's why actually I find it really infuriating when I read, 'She had a nervous breakdown' or 'She's not very mentally stable, just a weak, frail little creature'.

„All those little maneuvers I did out of things that were happening in my life that upset me.“

—  Edie Sedgwick Socialite, actress, model 1943 - 1971

Edie : American Girl (1982)
Kontext: I made a mask out of my face because I didn't realize I was quite beautiful. God blessed me so. I practically destroyed it. I had to wear heavy black eyelashes like bat wings, and dark lines under my eyes, and cut all my hair off, my long dark hair. Cut it off and strip it silver and blonde. All those little maneuvers I did out of things that were happening in my life that upset me.

It bounces around 'til my Soul comes clean
And when I'm clean and hung out to dry
