Everyone is a bore to someone. That is unimportant. The thing to avoid is being a bore to oneself.
– Gerald Brenan
Imagine someone so infatuated by a band that they have every different pressing of every album the band made. Most of the time, the only difference in the album is the matrix number or a different ‘made in’ notation on the back cover or label. This is enough to make some people extremely excited. Actually, much more than excited.
– Henry Rollins
This is what I would say to my pupil: ‘You have become only your fame and left behind most of who you were. How are you going to deal with that? Will you lose that person forever? Have you become someone else without really knowing it? Do you always have to stay in character for people to like you? Do you know that you are in character?’.
– Grace Jones
