    live Quotes

    I think that live music is really pretentious - all of it. I hate festivals and live shows, because as soon as I get on stage, I start performing for people and it becomes about sex, banter, and skill. They're looking at me and not thinking about themselves. I'm thinking about how cool I look. It's just stupid - all live music is really stupid. I wouldn't encourage going to see anybody live, ever. Not even me.

    Get people talking. Learn to ask questions that will elicit answers about what is most interesting or vivid in their lives.

His own words will always be better than your words, even if you are the most elegant stylist in the land.
    — William Zinsser
    One of the saddest sentences I know is "I wish I had asked my mother about that." Or my father. Or my grandmother. Or my grandfather. As every parent knows, our children are not as fascinated by our fascinating lives as we are.
    — William Zinsser

    I am disturbed when I see the majority of so-called Christians having such little understanding of the real nature of the faith they profess. Faith is a subject of such importance that we should not ignore it because of the distractions or the hectic pace of our lives.
    — William Wilberforce

    Someone must show that the Afro-American race is more sinned against than sinning, and it seems to have fallen to me to do so.
