Some people say I’ve got a five-octave range, which is ridiculous. That would mean I’d sing like Mariah Carey or that alien in ‘The Fifth Element.’ And I’m nothing like that blue alien. I’ve got a range of about 3 1/2 octaves.
Beauty is unbearable, drives us to despair, offering us for a minute the glimpse of an eternity that we should like to stretch out over the whole of time.
Passion is the evil in adultery. If a man has no opportunity of living with another man‘s wife, but if it is obvious for some reason that he would like to do so, and would do so if he could, he is no less guilty than if he was caught in the act.
Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead.
I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.
Act the way you’d like to be and soon you’ll be the way you act.
I used to work in the cotton fields a lot when I was young. There were a lot of African Americans working out there. A lot of Mexicans – the blacks and the whites and the Mexicans, all out there singing, and it was like an opera in the cotton fields, and I can still hear it in the music that I write and play today.

Paradise is exactly like where you are right now… only much, much better.
When someone hands you a flyer, it’s like they’re saying here you throw this away.
I like constructive criticism from smart people.
Like all best families, we have our share of eccentricities, of impetuous and wayward youngsters and of family disagreements.
The strongest governments on earth cannot clean up pollution by themselves. They must rely on each ordinary person, like you and me, on our choices, and on our will.

I am a human being, with feelings and emotions and scars and flaws, just like anyone else.
Our virtues and our failings are inseparable, like force and matter. When they separate, man is no more.

Your best T-shirt should be like your bed; it just feels like you are home when you are in it.

I see the world in black and white, and I don’t like compromising.
Sometimes I’m in a bad mood, sometimes I’m in a good mood. It’s like everyone else.
The best thing about being a DJ is making people happy. There is nothing like seeing people get up from a table to dance or the expression on their face when they hear a song they love. I also love to educate people on music they have never heard.
I’d like to live as a poor man with lots of money.
Enthusiasm is everything. It must be taut and vibrating like a guitar string.
