David Bowie, Fill your heart (1971), written by Biff Rose and Paul Williams

Fill your heart with love today
don’t play the game of time
things that happened in the past
only happened in your mind, only in your mind
oh, forget your mind and you’ll be free, yeah

The writing’s on the wall
free, yeah and you can know it all
if you choose, just remember lovers never lose
'cause they are free of thoughts unpure
and of thoughts unkind

Gentleness clears the soul
love cleans the mind
and makes it free

Oh, happiness is happening
dragons have been bled
gentleness is everywhere
fear’s just in your head, only in your head
fear is in your head, only in your head
so forget your head and you’ll be free

The writing’s on the wall
free, yeah and you can know it all
if you choose, just remember lovers never lose
'cause they are free of thoughts unpure
and of thoughts unkind

Gentleness clears the soul
love will clean your mind
and make you free

Also, listen to the original version here.

Some people go to priests; others to poetry; I to my friends, I to my own heart, I to seek among phrases and fragments something unbroken — I to whom there is not beauty enough in moon or tree; to whom the touch of one person with another is all, yet who cannot grasp even that, who am so imperfect, so weak, so unspeakably lonely. There I sat. Virginia Woolf, The Waves (1931)

Rooms with a View 

This exhibition focuses on a subject treasured by the Romantics: the view through an open window. German, French, Danish, and Russian artists first took up the theme in the second decade of the nineteenth century.

Juxtaposing near and far, the window is a metaphor for unfulfilled longing. Painters distilled this feeling in pictures of hushed, spare rooms with contemplative figures; studios with artists at work; and open windows as the sole motif. As the exhibition reveals, these pictures may shift markedly in tone, yet they share a distinct absence of the anecdote and narrative that characterized earlier genre painting.”
