„If I see a chick playing guitar, I’m drawn to that band immediately.“

On women playing guitar, Pitchfork (1 May 2014)
2014–2017
Контексте: If I see a chick playing guitar, I’m drawn to that band immediately. I want to know everything, even if it’s completely electronic. But you have to really get my attention if you’re male. I can’t help it. It’s part of my nature.

„I used to be coy about it, like me guitar playing. But if there's such a thing as genius — I am one.“

—  John Lennon English singer and songwriter 1940 - 1980

John Lennon interview with Rolling Stone magazine (December 1970)
Контексте: When I was about twelve, I used to think I must be a genius, but nobody's noticed. Either I'm a genius or I'm mad, which is it? "No," I said, "I can't be mad because nobody's put me away; therefore I'm a genius." Genius is a form of madness and we're all that way. But I used to be coy about it, like me guitar playing. But if there's such a thing as genius — I am one. And if there isn't, I don't care.
