Kingman Brewster

I might have been a goldfish in a glass bowl for all the privacy I got.

Meat Loaf

I am often accused of interfering in the private lives of citizens. Yes, if I did not, had I not done that, we wouldn't be here today. And I say without the slightest remorse, that we wouldn't be here, we would not have made economic progress, if we had not intervened on very personal matters - who your neighbour is, how you live, the noise you make, how you spit, or what language you use. We decide what is right. Never mind what the people think.

Lee Kuan Yew

In shallow shoals, English soles do it
Goldfish in the privacy of bowls do it.

Cole Porter
