„Knowledge is like the carrot, few know by looking at the green top that the best part, the orange part, is there. Like the carrot, if you don't work for it, it will wither away and rot. And finally, like the carrot, there are a great many donkeys and jackasses that are associated with it.“

—  Ходжа Насреддин, Dan Keding, Elder Tales: stories of wisdom and courage from around the world (2008), , p. 151

„Soul is when you take a song and make it a part of you — a part that's so true, so real, people think it must have happened to you. … It's like electricity — we don't really know what it is, do we? But it's a force that can light a room. Soul is like electricity, like a spirit, a drive, a power.“

—  Ray Charles American musician 1930 - 2004
As quoted in LIFE magazine (July 1966), also in Ray Charles : Man and Music (1998) by Michael Lydon, p. 264 Variant: What is soul? It's like electricity — we don't really know what it is, but it's a force that can light a room. As quoted in Pearls of Wisdom (1987) by Jerome Agel and Walter D. Glanze, p. 47
