Viver fora de si, por estar mais além de si mesmo. Viver disposto ao voo, pronto para qualquer partida.

Porque a amizade (já o disse antes) não é uma dádiva do céu, é uma espécie de tesouro escondido onde só se alcança depois de ter vencido caminhos e tempestades, e ter enfrentado monstros e gigantes, e ter atravessado florestas e subido montanhas, mil vezes soçobrando e mil vezes recomeçando de novo a partir da solidão e do exílio.

Liberdade não conheço senão a liberdade de estar preso em alguém
Cujo nome não posso ouvir sem arrepio;
Alguém por quem me esqueço desta existência mesquinha,
Por quem o dia e a noite são para mim o que quiser.
E meu corpo e espírito flutuam em seu corpo e espírito
Como troncos perdidos que o mar afoga ou levanta
Livremente, com a liberdade do amor,
A única liberdade que me exalta,
A única liberdade por que morro.

Tu justificas minha existência:
Se não te conhecer, não vivi;
Se morrer sem te conhecer, não morro, porque não vivi.

Luís Cernuda


...I say thank you but no... no thank you.

Letters Live | Kylie Minogue, 2015 

To all those at MTV,

I would like to start by thanking you all for the support you have given me over recent years and I am both grateful and flattered by the nominations that I have received for best male artist. The air play given to both the Kylie Minogue and P. J. Harvey duets from my latest album murder ballads has not gone unnoticed and has been greatly appreciated. So again my sincere thanks.
Having said that, I feel that it's necessary for me to request that my nomination for best male artist be withdrawn and furthermore any awards or nominations for such awards that may arise in later years be presented to those who feel more comfortable with the competitive nature of these award ceremonies. I myself, do not. I have always been of the opinion that my music is unique and individual and exists beyond the realms inhabited by those who would reduce things to mere measuring. I am in competition with no-one.
My relationship with my muse is a delicate one at the best of times and I feel that it is my duty to protect her from influences that may offend her fragile nature.

She comes to me with the gift of song and in return i treat her with the respect I feel she deserves - in this case this means not subjecting her to the indignities of judgement and competition. My muse is not a horse and I am in no horse race and if indeed she was, still i would not harness her to this tumbrel - this bloody cart of severed heads and glittering prizes. My muse may spook! May bolt! May abandon me completely!
So once again, to the people at MTV, I appreciate the zeal and energy that was put behind my last record, I truly do and say thank you and again I say thank you but no... no thank you.

Yours sincerely, 
Nick Cave

“Now, 'You Owe Me' I think is a little bit of a dig at everything. It might even be, subconsciously, a bit of a dig at the world, I don't know. Looking at yourself in the mirror, catching that reflection. Not being entirely happy with what you see staring back at you. This song is definitely me getting a little bit testy with everything and everyone around me. And really, sort of standing up and saying: fuck you. You owe me. And it's actually very positive in that way, too. You've got to stand up and do something if you want something to change.”
