If you have only one smile in you, give it to the people you love. Don’t be surly at home, then go out in the street and start grinning ‘Good morning’ at total strangers.

There is no balance. There is no balance. There is family and then there’s everything else, and that’ s how it’s got to be. My whole family they inspire me. And when this is all done and the people aren’t buying the records anymore and the autograph hunters don’t care, that’s all I’m gonna have.

Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.

I wanna show that gospel, country, blues, rhythm and blues, jazz, rock ‘n’ roll are all just really one thing. Those are the American music and that is the American culture.
I’d like to be remembered as a premier singer of songs, not just a popular act of a given period.
The music that I make is built on layers upon layers of musical ideas. I want to keep it fun and fresh to where listeners won’t get everything from just one listen. They can go back to it months, weeks, or even years later and hear something that they didn’t ever hear before. That’s what it’s all about.
