In many ways an artist is his work. It’s difficult to separate the two. I think I can be brutally objective about my work as I create it, and if something doesn’t work, I can feel it, but when I turn in a finished album — or song — you can be sure that I’ve...
In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.
When they say the sky’s the limit to me that’s really true
When I step out on stage in front of thousands of people, I don’t feel that I’m being brave. It can take much more courage to express true feelings to one person. […] In spite of the risks, the courage to be honest and intimate opens the way to self-discovery. It offers what we all...
Before I would hurt a child, I would slit my wrists.
Everything that I love is behind those gates. We have elephants, and giraffes, and crocodiles, and every kind of tigers and lions. And – and we have bus loads of kids, who don’t get to see those things. They come up sick children, and enjoy it.
When I see children, I see the face of God. That’s why I love them so much. That’s what I see.
Just because it’s in print doesn’t mean it’s the gospel.
But I will never stop helping and loving people the way Jesus said to.
It’s a complete lie, why do people buy these papers? It’s not the truth I’m here to say. You know, don’t judge a person, do not pass judgement, unless you have talked to them one on one. I don’t care what the story is, do not judge them because it is a lie.
The greatest education in the world is watching the masters at work.
I remember going swimming as a child and making a wish before I jumped into the pool. […] I’d stretch my arms out, as if I were sending my thoughts right into space. I’d make my wish, then I’d dive into the water. I’d say to myself, “This is my dream. This is my wish,”...
My attitude is if fashion says it’s forbidden, I’m going to do it.
Whenever I saw a sunset, I would quietly make my secret wish right before the sun tucked under the western horizon and disappeared. It would seem as if the sun had taken my wish with it. I’d make it right before the last speck of light vanished.
The Bee Gees who are brilliant, I just love great music.
I’m just like anyone. I cut and I bleed. And I embarass easily.
How many victims must that be? Slaughtered in vain across the land,And how many strugles must that be?Before we choose to live the profits planEverybody sing- Every day create your History,Every path you take you’re leaving your legacyEvery soldier dies in his gloryEvery legend tells of conquest and liberty.
And that’s what innocence is. It’s simple and trusting like a child, not judgmental and committed to one narrow point of view. If you are locked into a pattern of thinking and responding, your creativity gets blocked. You miss the freshness and magic of the moment. Learn to be innocent again, and that freshness never...
I’m never pleased with anything, I’m a perfectionist, it’s part of who I am.
