I've spent a lot of very happy times in Edinburgh as a result of playing virtually every festival since 1996. It's also a beautiful city in its own right, is walkable, within sight of the sea and mountains - and was too far north for the Luftwaffe to have done any damage, hence the spectacularly beautiful architecture.
If I'm pushed, I'd also have to admit I don't like people with allergies. They just annoy me. There seems to be something far too self-centred about it. 'No thanks, I'm allergic.' Why not just say 'No thanks'? I wasn't asking for your medical history, I was just passing around the nuts. Trying to be friendly, that's all.
Most people don't grow up. It's too damn difficult. What happens is most people get older. That's the truth of it. They honor their credit cards, they find parking spaces, they marry, they have the nerve to have children, but they don't grow up.
I managed my life to the point that at age 19 I was still in high school. I decided I was too old to be walking down those hallways.
A woman can bring a new love to each man she loves, providing there are not too many.
It is too late to be studying Hebrew; it is more important to understand even the slang of today.
Henry David Thoreau
The kids are old enough now - I just want to let them be kids. I don't want to comment on them too much. They're at an age where I just want to let them be kids.
For 24 years of my adult life, by choice I weighed well over 200 pounds. I say 'by choice' because I have never 'accidentally' eaten anything, so when I choose to eat too much, I have chosen to weigh too much.
By not caring too much about what people think, I'm able to think for myself and propagate ideas which are very often unpopular. And I succeed.
One of the most glorious messes in the world is the mess created in the living room on Christmas day. Don't clean it up too quickly.
Too many of us are lonely ministers practicing a lonely ministry.
Fun I love, but too much fun is of all things the most loathsome. Mirth is better than fun, and happiness is better than mirth.
At a dinner party one should eat wisely but not too well, and talk well but not too wisely.
W. Somerset Maugham
The weirder you're going to behave, the more normal you should look. It works in reverse, too. When I see a kid with three or four rings in his nose, I know there is absolutely nothing extraordinary about that person.
P. J. O'Rourke
I'm just like you. I enjoy the forbidden fruits in life, too.
A very large majority of the U.S. population is in favor of establishing diplomatic relations with Cuba and has been for a long time with some fluctuations. And even part of the business world is in favor of it, too. But the government won't allow it.
The greatest progress is in the sciences that study the simplest systems. So take, say, physics - greatest progress there. But one of the reasons is that the physicists have an advantage that no other branch of sciences has. If something gets too complicated, they hand it to someone else.
If I thought about it, I could be bitter, but I don't feel like being bitter. Being bitter makes you immobile, and there's too much that I still want to do.
I am woman, hear me roar, in numbers too big to ignore, and I know too much to go back and pretend.
People like to imagine that because all our mechanical equipment moves so much faster, that we are thinking faster, too.
I didn't want to play it boring and safe. I also didn't want to innovate too much. Second albums, man, they're even scarier than first ones.
At my age the only problem is with remembering names. When I call everyone darling, it has damn all to do with passionately adoring them, but I know I'm safe calling them that. Although, of course, I adore them too.
For me, I don't like it when there is too much interference in our lives. We're not children. It is our own life in our hands.
You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.
Bores bore each other too; but it never seems to teach them anything.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
