o najvećem strahu:

"My...biggest fear, I guess, is losing my memory. It does worry me at timesthat I'm not gonna be able to continue to do what I do...
Because memory is what we are, you know, and I think that your very soul and your very reason...to be alive is tied up in memory.

I mean, I think for a very long time, I've been building up a kind of world through narrative songwriting. It is a kind of world that's created about those precious, um...
original memories that define our lives and those memories that we spend for ever chasing after.

Which memories do you think you're chasing after? I think exactly what we've been talking about. Those earlier childhood memories. Those moments when the gears of the heart really change and that's...that could be being, er...discovering some work of art.

Um...it could be some massive traumatic experience that happens. Um...it could be some tiny moment, er...a fragment of a moment, and in some way that's really what
the process of songwriting is for me.

It's the retelling of these stories and the mythologizing of these stories. To lose the faculty of memory is a massive trauma within that world, obviously."

o svojoj supruzi

"The first time I saw Susie was at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and when she came walking in, all the things I had obsessed over for all the years - pictures of movie stars, Jenny Agutter in the billabong, Anita Ekberg in the fountain, Ali MacGraw in her black tights,images from the TV when I was a kid,Barbara Eden and Elizabeth Montgomery and Abigail, Miss World competitions, Marilyn Monroe, and Jennifer Jones and Bo Derek and Angie Dickinson as Police Woman, Maria Falconetti and Suzi Quatro, Bolshoi ballerinas and Russian gymnasts, Wonder Woman and Barbarella and supermodels and Page 3 girls, all the endless, impossible fantasies, the young girls at the Wangaratta pool lying on the hot concrete, Courbet's Origin Of The World, Bataille's bowl of milk, Jean Simmons' nose ring, all the stuff I had heard and seen and read. Advertising and TV commercials, billboards and fashion spreads and Playmate of the Month, Caroline Jones dying in Elvis's arms, Jackie O in mourning, Tinker Bell trapped in the drawer, all the continuing, never-ending drip-feed of erotic data came together at that moment in one great big crash-bang, and I was lost to her, and that was that."

"All of our days are numbered. We cannot afford to be idle. To act on a bad idea
is better than to not act at all...because the worth of the idea never becomes apparent until you do it. Sometimes this idea can be the smallest thing in the world, a little flame that you hunch over and cup with your hand and pray will not be extinguished by all the storm that howls about it. If you can hold on to that flame, great things can be constructed around it that are massive and powerful and world-changing..."
