Quote of the Day
I am not a has-been. I am a will be.
I'd rather be a could-be if I cannot be an are; because a could-be is a maybe who is reaching for a star. I'd rather be a has-been than a might-have-been, by far; for a might have-been has never been, but a has was once an are.
The fear of becoming a 'has-been' keeps some people from becoming anything.
It is better to be a has-been than a never-was.

When you succeed, at a certain point, you want to challenge yourself. Otherwise, you become boring. You become a has-been. It's not very interesting. I don't want to be this guy who has only succeeded in France. I could say, 'O.K., that's it; merci.' But I'm not interested in that.
Remember, it's better to be a has-been than a never-was.

I'm the first has-been star singer ever to sing with the circus. I mean, Presley sang with the circus, but that was before he became a star.
It's a terrifying thing to be perhaps 16 or 17 and feel like you are a failure and a has-been.
I am not interested in releasing best of stuff and I have not given my permission. You release best of packages when you're a has-been and have nothing new to offer.
