Are you cheating on your home work? I hope not. Why not just google and find the quote for yourself instead of having someone google it for you and spoon feed it in a condensed version. You will get much more out of your work by doing it yourself.
Cat Stevens from Wikipedia:
"Yusuf Islam (Arabic: يوسف إسلام) (born Steven Demetre Georgiou on July 21, 1948 in London), who was known as Cat Stevens from 1966 to 1978, is an English musician, singer-songwriter, educator, philanthropist and prominent convert to Islam.
Under the name "Cat Stevens", he has sold over 60 million albums around the world since the late 1960s. His albums Tea for the Tillerman and Teaser and the Firecat were both certified by the RIAA as having achieved Triple Platinum status in the United States (three million sales each); his album Catch Bull at Four sold half a million copies in the first two weeks of release and was Billboard's number-one LP for three consecutive weeks. His songwriting has also earned him two ASCAP songwriting awards (for "The First Cut Is the Deepest", which has been a hit single for four different artists.)
At the height of his fame, in 1977, Stevens converted to Islam. In 1978, he adopted the name Yusuf Islam, leaving his music career to devote himself to educational and philanthropic causes in the Muslim community. As a high-profile voice for Islam, he caused controversy in 1989 with public statements that were widely interpreted as support for the fatwa against Salman Rushdie, an interpretation which he has denied. In 2006, he returned to pop music, with his first album of new pop songs in 28 years, entitled An Other Cup.
He has been given several awards for his work in promoting peace in the world, including the 2004 Man for Peace award and the 2007 Mediterranean Prize for Peace. He lives with his wife, Fauzia Mubarak Ali, and five children in Brondesbury Park, London, and spends part of each year in Dubai."
As you managed to point out; it is the lyrics for Cat Stevens song from the 1970s I believe.
Its about his love leaving him and he is trying to convince her to stay by telling her about the ills of the world and how difficult it would be for her to survive out there on her own.
I believe that after this the guy moved to the middle east, did a peace song and that was it until recently when he somehow resurfaced.
