Some suggestions for you :

You got to get it while you can.

When I sing, I feel like when you're first in love. It's more than sex. It's that point two people can get to they call love, when you really touch someone for the first time, but it's gigantic, multiplied by the whole audience. I feel chills.

Texas is OK if you want to settle down and do your own thing quietly, but it's not for outrageous people, and I was always outrageous.

You know why we're stuck with the myth that only black people have soul? Because white people don't let themselves feel things.

On stage, I make love to 25,000 different people, then I go home alone.

I always wanted to be an artist, whatever that was, like other chicks want to be stewardesses. I read. I painted. I thought.

Who you are is what you settle for, you know?

I won't quit to become someone's old lady.

Being an intellectual creates a lot of questions and no answers.

I've been looking around, and I noticed something: how much you really need to be loved. Ambition isn't just a desperate quest for positions or money. It's just love - lots of love.

Guess what, I might be the first hippie pinup girl.

All of a sudden, someone threw me in front of this rock and roll band. And I decided then and there that was it. I never wanted to do anything else.

Playing is just about feeling. Playing isn't necessarily about misery. Playing isn't necessarily about happiness. But it's just about letting yourself feel all those things that you have already on the inside of you, but you're all the time trying to push them aside because they don't make for polite conversation or something.

You can destroy your now by worrying about tomorrow.
