The deeper you get into Yoga you realize it is a spiritual practice. It's a journey I'm making. I'm heading that way.
Love is stronger than justice.
Like Yoga, the spiritual life is actually very difficult.

I don't like singing before noon.
It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile.
I've only paid lip service to a spiritual life.
The more irrational of us are worried about the millennium ending - as if a date would really matter.
It has very little to do with my work, but if your image is not sexy enough, people won't listen. It's part of the game.
It's never easy to write a song. It's the most difficult thing I do.

There's no religion but sex and music.
I see songs not as a commodity used up when the album goes off the charts, which is often the case with pop songs. I see them as a body of work. Life should be breathed into them.

I come from a family of losers, and I've rejected my family as something I don't want to be like.
I do my best work when I am in pain and turmoil.
I'm not speaking as someone who has reached satori or anything else. I'm a student.
I want to get old gracefully. I want to have good posture, I want to be healthy and be an example to my children.
If you make your living writing, and you can't write anything, it's over. It's very frightening.
