"The courage to be nobody" is an expression written by J.D. Salinger in Franny and Zooey.
“I'm not afraid to compete. It's just the opposite. Don't you see that? I'm afraid I will compete — that's what scares me. That's why I quit the Theatre Department. Just because I'm so horribly conditioned to accept everybody else's values, and just because I like applause and people to rave about me, doesn't make it right. I'm ashamed of it. I'm sick of it. I'm sick of not having the courage to be an absolute nobody. I'm sick of myself and everybody else that wants to make some kind of a splash.”
"Don't shake me, I'm full of tears" is a sentence written by Henri Calet two days before he died.
« C’est sur la peau de mon cœur que l’on trouverait des rides. Je suis déjà un peu parti, absent. Faites comme si je n’étais pas là. Ma voix ne porte plus très loin. Mourir sans savoir ce qu’est la mort, ni la vie. Il faut se quitter déjà ? Ne me secouez pas. Je suis plein de larmes. »
The opening chords of "Dont shake me, I'm full of tears" were inspired by a song called "you make me blush" by Tahiti boy and the palmtree family.

My ears were embraced in a sobering poignance, whose gentle warmth and remorseful delicacy, for no lack of tempered cheeriness, swept over me in waves of emotion, graduating until it left me alone and ok again. I feel like I have been given a gift that has been a long time coming. Thank you. Augium
