Citazioni con argomento "Conformismo"

Lo sai, Michele, cosa fa l'autista del tram? [..]Sembra che guidi il tram, che sia padrone del mezzo, in realtà è uno che semplicemente frena e accelera. C'è il binario. Lui al massimo decide la velocità, ma neanche tanto, perché persino le fermate sono prestabilite e devono rispettare un orario. E così capita anche a noi: liceo, università, lavoro, matrimonio, figli, capolinea! Finisce che decidiamo solo quanto tempo metterci. Tutta la straordinarietà della vita ridotta a due funzioni: accelerare o frenare. Punto. Abbiamo l'illusione di guidare la nostra vita.

Fabio Volo, Un posto nel mondo

Whatever happened to the funky race?
A generation lost in pace
- Wasn't life supposed to be more than this?
In this kiss I'll change your bore for my bliss
But let go of my hand
and it will slip out in the sand
if you don't give me the chance
to break down the walls of attitude
I ask nothing of you
not even your gratitude

And if you think I'm corny
then it will not make me sorry
it's your right to laugh at me
and in turn, that's my opportunity
to feel brave
Because ridicule is no shame
it's just a way to eclipse hate
it's just a way to put my back straight
it's just a way to remain sane

Every morning I would see her
getting off the bus
the picture never drops
it's like a multicoloured snapshot
stuck in my brain
it kept me sane for a couple of years
as it drenched my fears
of becoming like the others
who become unhappy mothers
and fathers of unhappy kids
And why is that?
'Cause they've forgotten how to play
maybe they're afraid to feel ashamed
to seem strange
to seem insane
to gain weight
to seem gay
- I tell you this:

That it takes a fool to remain sane
it takes a fool to remain sane
it takes a fool to remain sane
in this world all covered up in shame
(- Oh, take it to the stage!)
So, take it to the stage
in a multicourored jacket
take it jackpot, crackpot
strutting like a peacock
nailvarnish Arkansas
shimmy-shammy featherboah
crackpot haircut
dye your hair in glowing red and blue

- Do, Do, Do! What you wanna do
Don't think twice, do what you have to do
Do, Do, Do, let your heart decide
what you have to do
that's all there is to find

'Cause it takes a fool to remain sane
It takes a fool to remain sane
In this world all covered up in shame
It takes a fool to remain sane
It takes a fool to remain sane
It takes a fool to remain sane
In this world all covered up in shame

The Ark, It takes a fool to remain sane
