Kate Bush Quotes
I think quotes are very dangerous things.
It's not important to me that people understand me.
What I've tended to do is to use my own experiences to get into someone else's mind, like in Wuthering Heights.
Clothes are such a strong part of who a human being is.
I think snow is so evocative and has such a powerful atmosphere.
It's so fascinating to think about how each snowflake is completely individual - there are millions and millions of them, but each one is so unique.
I had friends but I was spending a great deal of my time alone and for me that was vital because there's an awful lot you learn about yourself when you're alone.
I wasn't an easy, happy-go-lucky girl because I used to think about everything so much, and I think I probably still do.
I'm the shyest megalomaniac you're ever likely to meet.
School was a very cruel environment, and I was a loner. But I learnt to get hurt, and I learnt to cope with it.

I guess what all artists want is for their work to touch someone or for it to be thought provoking.
Albums are like diaries. You go through phases, technically and emotionally, and they reflect the state that you're in at the time.
I definitely don't think of myself as being an influence.

I love being with my friends, relaxing and talking.
I really love Hitchcock; I think he was a complete genius, to me one of the best directors. Such a sense of how to put things together.
