I'd rather spend my time looking at the sky than listening to Whitney Houston.

Tags: Looking, Rather, Time

I've always spent more time with a smile on my face than not, but the thing is, I don't write about it.

Refusing to grow up is like refusing to accept your limitations. That's why I don't think we'll ever grow up.

Tags: Accept, Grow, Why

But everyone I know reaches a point where they throw out their arms and go beserk for a while; otherwise you never know what your limits are. I was just trying to find mine.

I married somebody who likes the way I look. If I changed my hair every year, and I reinvented myself in time-honoured pop fashion, I think understandably the person I'm married to would grow slightly sick of me.

Tags: Cure, End, Ending

I've never regretted not having children. My mindset in that regard has been constant. I objected to being born, and I refuse to impose life on someone else.

Tags: Children, Life, Someone

Tags: God, Pain, Sacrifice

Tags: Another, Found, Old
