I've got this feeling down
Deep in my soul

Guess I'm on my way
Mighty glad you stayed.“

„Now I've got this moniker that I'm the foot-in-mouth gal, and I keep thinking, In what way? Because I said something you don't agree with? Because I said something you don't like? I'm just telling you my opinion. I hate the idea that I can't be honest about how I feel about things because it's going to piss somebody off who feels differently. That seems preposterous to me.“
— Katherine Heigl American actress and film producer 1978
„You know, the way I'm accepted, I almost feel like Judy Garland, truly. It makes no sense to me because I don't think that I've been any more outspoken… Or maybe I have, I don't know. But everyone I know supports anything that has to do with raising money or with AIDS.“

„I know that people are interested, and I understand why, but I don't want that stuff to overshadow my life. It's just the way it is. I'm a singer, I'm in a band, I've been out with musicians, I've had children with two different musicians. To me, it's no big deal. I only get upset because I want people to listen to the songs. Listen to the LP or come and see my band. I don't like it when people write about my life and don't even mention the music.“

„I've come of heart, baby, but now I'm cool
I didn't make it surely, playin' by the rules

I'm checkin' trouble, sure movin' down the line
I've come of heart, baby, but that's OK
'Cause Trouble Man don't get in my way.“

And I've seen the flame.
And I've been this way before,
And I'm sure to be this way again.For I've been refused,
And I've been regained,
And I've seen your eyes before,
And I'm sure to see your eyes again.
Once again.For I've been released,
And I've been regained,
And I've sung my song before,
And I'm sure to sing my song again.
— Neil Diamond American singer-songwriter 1941

„I've got no time to look back, I've got no time to see
The pieces of my heart that have been ripped away from me.
And if the feeling starts to coming, I've learned to stop 'em fast
Because I don't know, if I let 'em go, they might not wanna pass.
And there's just so many people trying to get me on the phone
And there's bills to pay, and songs to play
And a house to make a home.
I guess I'm older now and I've got no time to cry.“
— Iris DeMent American singer and songwriter 1961
No Time to Cry
„Sometimes I feel more bigness than I've shared with you
