„Myself and the people close to me are all part of a social system, and we were being conditioned to accept the status quo.“

— Seal (musician) British singer-songwriter 1963
Context: Myself and the people close to me are all part of a social system, and we were being conditioned to accept the status quo. But on this album, I'm saying it's time for us to take charge. We can change it. We can take control of our emotional system and be happy. My point is don't just sit there and allow life to happen to you. Go out and take charge if you want change, but it begins closer to home. As quoted in "Seal" profile at Victoria's Secret Fashion Show (CBS) (4 December 2007)
