„You'll never make me stay
So take your weight off of me.
I know your every move
So won't you just let me be.
I've been here times before
But I was too blind to see
That you seduce every man.
This time you won't seduce me.“

„You know that feeling you get / You feel you're older than time?
Do you keep the receipts for the friends that you buy?
And I hope you know / That it won't let go / It sticks around with you until the day you die.
I hope the tears don't stain the world that waits outside.“

you won't say goodbye.“

'Cause it will not last forever.

But now I need the rest of you.“

„In time, in time they tell me, I'll not feel so bad. I don't want time to heal me. There's a reason I'm like this.
I want time to set me ugly and knotted with loss of you, marking me. I won't smooth you away.
I can't say goodbye.“

„I can't keep up with your turning tables
Under your thumb, I can't breathe.I won't let you close enough to hurt me, no.
I won't ask you, you to just desert me.
I can't give you, what you think you gave me.
It's time to say goodbye to turning tables.“

„It's an old political trick: "If you can't convince 'em, confuse 'em." But this time it won't work.“
— Harry Truman American politician, 33rd president of the United States (in office from 1945 to 1953) 1884 - 1972
Address at the National Plowing Match (18 September 1948); as quoted in Miracle of '48: Harry Truman's Major Campaign Speeches and Selected Whistle-stops (2003); edited by Steve Neal. Truman's mention of an "old political trick" is often quoted alone as if it were a strategy he was advising rather than one he was criticizing.
Kontext: On the one hand, the Republicans are telling industrial workers that the high cost of food in the cities is due to this government's farm policy. On the other hand, the Republicans are telling the farmers that the high cost of manufactured goods on the farm is due to this government's labor policy.
That's plain hokum. It's an old political trick: "If you can't convince 'em, confuse 'em." But this time it won't work.
— Neal Cassady American cultural figure of 1950s and 1960s 1926 - 1968
