No matter how close to yours another's steps have grown, in the end there is one dance you'll do alone.
Faith builds the bridge from this old world to the new.
At least when I was govenor, cocaine was expensive.
"As you go through history, I didn't think it was going to get quite this close. So it's just one of those recurring things… I hope this doesn't come true in our country. Maybe the film will waken people to the situation."
Live every day like it's your last.
Do it right or don't do it at all. That comes from my mom. If there's something I want to do, I'm one of those people that won't be satisfied until I get it done. If I'm trying to sing something and I can't get it, I'm going to keep at it until I get where I want it.
I will never give in to old age until I become old. And I'm not old yet!

It was the morning of April 20, 1999, and it was pretty much like any other morning in America. The Farmer did his chores. The milkman made his deliveries. The President bombed another country whose name we couldn't pronounce. Out in Fargo, North Dakota, Cary McWilliams went on his morning walk. Back in Michigan, Mrs Hughes welcomed her students for another day of school. And out in a little town in Colorado, two boys went bowling at 6 in the morning. Yes, it was a typical day in the United States of America.
People in England are so bloody nosy.
We must have the courage to allow a little disorder in our lives.
For me... it's the only life
That I've ever known
And love is only one...
Even though the living
Is sometimes laced with lies...
The feeling remains
Even after the glitter fades
Am I allowed to say I really wanted this?
Writing about music is like dancing about architecture; it's a really stupid thing to want to do.
Come as you are, as you were
As I want you to be
As a Trend, as a friend, as an old enemy
Take your time, hurry up
The choice is yours, don't be late.
Kurt Donald Cobain
Just don't give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don't think you can go wrong.
All dope can do for you is kill you the long hard way. And it can kill the people you love right along with you.
Love is so much better when you are not married.

I love doing what I do, but I don't like seeing the finished product.
Without Elvis, none of us could have made it.
There is an electricity about a friendship relationship. We are both more relaxed and more sensitive, more creative and more reflective, more energetic and more casual, more excited and more serene. It is as though when we come in contact with our friend we enter into a different environment. ANDREW M. GREELEY

The poets were not alone in sanctioning myths, for long before the poets the states and the lawmakers had sanctioned them as a useful expedient. They needed to control the people by superstitious fears, and these cannot be aroused without myths and marvels.
Fail, fail again, fail better.
My mother has always been unhappy with what I do. She would rather I do something nicer, like be a bricklayer.
I don't know who I am / but you know, life is for learning.
With the power of conviction, there is no sacrifice.
I think every American actor wants to be a movie star. But I never wanted to do stupid movies, I wanted to do films. I vowed I would never do a commercial, nor would I do a soap opera -- both of which I did as soon as I left the [Acting] Company and was starving.
There are no shortcuts to any place worth going.
Music is forever; music should grow and mature with you, following you right on up until you die.
Figure out who you are and then do it on purpose.
Would those of you in the cheaper seats clap your hands? And the rest of you, if you'll just rattle your jewelry.
If you understood everything I say, you'd be me!
Every drop in the ocean counts.
It's time to move on, time to get going, What lies ahead, I have no way of knowing, But under my feet, baby, grass is growing, It's time to move on, it's, time to get going.
When I started in music, I thought, "My job is pretty simple. I search for the human things in myself, and I turn them into notes and words, and then in some fashion, I help people hold on to their own humanity."
May God bless and keep you always,
May your wishes all come true,
May you always do for others
And let others do for you.
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung,
May you stay forever young.
I dont have to be careful Ive got a gun!
I never know how much of what I say is true.
The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time.
In the fall of 1989, I was working with a band who turned me on to the bootlegged recordings of Brian Wilson's legendary, aborted Smile sessions. Like a musical burning bush, these tapes awakened me to a higher consciousness in record making. I was amazed that one, single human could dream up this unprecedented and radically advanced approach to rock 'n roll.
I was really stunned when I met him several months later. Far from the catatonic drug burn-out the tabloids loved to depict, the guy I got to know was lucid and happening. When we started to mess around in the studio, it became clear that he was capable of making a record every bit as complex and beautiful as Pet Sounds whenever he felt like it. How could a talent so great be so misunderstood and under appreciated?
My personal favorite is "Caroline No," his paean to lost innocence. I hear the weary voice of a man who's been hurled through the emotional wringer and yet, one can plainly discern the youthful sweetness, optimism and goodness that characterizes Brian's soul. It's that dichotomy that makes him one of the most enigmatic and endearing characters of these times.
Who can explain it? Who can tell you why? Fools give you reasons; Wise men never try.
