Songs are welcome but so are lines or phrases (in which case, kindly paste the line or phrase into your comment).

I'll kick-off with some old music

The Byrds' 'Turn Turn Turn'

The Stones' 'You Can't Always Get What You Want'

And more recent from Buena Vista Social Club

I'll write some of my favorites. The first one is from my last translation, Minha Alma (My Soul):
Paz sem voz não é paz, é medo
Voiceless peace ain't peace, it's fear
https://lyricstranslate.com/en/minha-alma-paz-que-n%C3%A3o-quero-my-soul...

The second is from Paulinho da Viola's Dança da Solidão (Loneliness Dance):
Quando eu penso no futuro, não esqueço o meu passado
When I think about the future, I don't forget my past
https://lyricstranslate.com/en/dan%C3%A7a-da-solid%C3%A3o-loneliness-dan...

The third one is from a song by Charlie Brown Jr. that wasn't translated yet, Não Uso Sapato (I Never Wear Shoes):
Quem não respeita o pai, não respeita ninguém
Porque um homem de verdade vai ser pai também
One who doesn't respect his father, will respect no one
Because a real man shall be a father too.

I'm sure you have plenty of wisdom to share.

Remember, it could just be one line or phrase within a song.

Or any quote is fine with me. From Shakespeare or a comedy like Seinfeld.

This one is about fighting with your romantic partner. Simple but wise in a non-preachy way. Country, Randy Travis, Small Y'All: https://lyricstranslate.com/en/randy-travis-small-yall-lyrics.html
