Most people don`t care if you`re telling them the truth or if you`re telling them a lie, as long as they`re entertained by it.

I hate Disneyland. It primes our kids for Las Vegas.

My reality needs imagination like a bulb needs a socket. My imagination needs reality like a blind man needs a cane.

I don`t know if any genuine, meaningful change could ever result from a song. It`s kind of like throwing peanuts at a gorilla.

It`s hard to win when you always lose.

Don`t look back, because someone might be gaining on you.
