„Should I kill myself, or have a cup of coffee?“

—  Albert Camus French author and journalist 1913 - 1960

„We all been playing those mind games forever
Some kinda druid dudes lifting the veil.“

—  John Lennon English singer and songwriter 1940 - 1980

"Mind Games"
Lyrics, Mind Games (1973)
Kontext: p>We all been playing those mind games forever
Some kinda druid dudes lifting the veil.
Doing the mind guerrilla,
Some call it magic — the search for the grail. Love is the answer and you know that for sure.
Love is a flower, you got to let it — you got to let it grow.</p
