My parents are very funny when they have to deal with anything racy or off-color. They usually pretend they don’t speak English.
I grew up like a neglected weed – ignorant of liberty, having no experience of it.
A few vices are sufficient to darken many virtues.
Making an album should be an honest experience. It shouldn’t be about trying to gauge where popular music is today it should be about artistic expression and putting down what you want to put down.
Prayer is as natural an expression of faith as breathing is of life.
Life is a lot like jazz… it’s best when you improvise.
My second husband believed I had such a fickle attitude to friendship that each Friday he would update the list of my ‘Top Ten’ friends in the manner of a Top Of The Pops chart countdown.
Go, go to your business, I say, pleasure, whilst I go to my pleasure, business.
Sinful and forbidden pleasures are like poisoned bread they may satisfy appetite for the moment, but there is death in them at the end.
Joy, temperance, and repose, slam the door on the doctor’s nose.
-Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
