„People hunger for love, and clowning is a trick to get love close.“

As quoted in "Patch Adams and clowns spreading laughter at hospital" (2 March 2016) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Gtw5nzgYpA
Kontext: You know, it's always the same. I've clowned in 81 countries. People hunger for love, and clowning is a trick to get love close. As a clown I can do things that people are too frightened of Love to allow you to do.

„When you reach for a star
Only angels are there
And it's not very far
Just a step on a stair
Take a look at those clowns
And the tricks that they play
In the circus of life
Life is bitter and gay There are clowns in the night
Clowns everywhere
See how they run
Run from despair …“

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