I certainly understand that we're all trying to make a living,
by Aimee Mann

I certainly understand that we're all trying to make a living,
but I'm not thinking about that when I'm making it.
And if that's your sole motivation, it's going to reflect that narcissistic greed,
and you're going to hear it in the music.
- Aimee Mann

There's a lot of music that sounds like it's literally computer-generated,
totally divorced from a guy sitting down at an instrument.
- Aimee Mann

- Aimee Mann

I wanted to try to write songs on the piano to get a different flavor.
- Aimee Mann

 

Everyone's just extracting meaning and feeling and
emotion from almost every aspect of music,
and I think that for me, it's a huge antidote to that to have a concept album.
- Aimee Mann

- Aimee Mann

For me, there's a fine line between telling a story
that's fictional with lots of details and then removing
yourself too much from it,
so it's bloodless, a little too fictional.
- Aimee Mann

Listen, I'm out of this system, man,
I'm out...
I'm doing better than ever.
I couldn't be more happy.
- Aimee Mann

Everybody kind of understands, Oh yeah you take drugs
and it does something to your brain and then you can't stop.
It's easier to describe that shame, that horrible feeling
of not being able to control your own life.
- Aimee Mann

You know what, the drummer is my manager.
He's busy.
And I'm busy.
I don't need the dough, though.
But having said that, there's a limit to how much bad music I wanna play.
I did it when I was young, and some of the music was OK,
but it wasn't great.
- Aimee Mann

In the '70s, everybody thought drugs were just good times.
People didn't really know about drug addiction,
or that such a thing existed.
When I grew up in the '70s I thought you had to take drugs.
It was almost like I didn't think you had a choice.
- Aimee Mann

I have a 6-year-old, and his thing is to turn on Radio Disney in the car,
and I get such an allergic reaction to listening to
that music and the context into which it falls.
I'm really working on him about that.
- Aimee Mann

It's funny, because my last record was a lot about
isolation and people living in separate worlds that
other people can't even understand,
which drug addiction is the perfect negative example of.
- Aimee Mann

I didn't want to play these people any more songs and
have them say that they weren't good enough.
So my response was to just not be able to write anymore.
I know that's not the healthiest of responses.
- Aimee Mann

One of the things I've really gotten past in the last
couple of years is the idea of being made uncomfortable
by the way things appear,
rather than how things are.
Clearly in this business you have to contend with a lot of that.
- Aimee Mann

It's more important for me to have a good record with
good music and be part of a movie that's good and where
the music is used in a really great way.
That's the important thing.
The other stuff you want to say about it,
I don't care.
- Aimee Mann

Truth is certainly a branch of morality
and a very important one to society.
- Thomas Jefferson

In all circumstances I acknowledge this,
IN ALL THINGS AND ALL WAYS, I HAVE CHOICE.

and roadways and others, I do control myself
and my response to all those circumstances. I do indeed.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

In many ways, it is easier to be a good giver than a good receiver.
The giver chooses the gift and the timing.
More important, societal and religious traditions
tend to elevate the status of giver and lower the status of receiver.
When the Bible (Acts 20:32-35) speaks of it being
more blessed to give than to receive,
I believe that a better translation might be
"take" rather than "receive," as the context
of that passage is "coveting."
Certainly there is nothing blessed about coveting,
stealing, begging, or demanding,
however the skill of graciously receiving a freely offered gift
is another matter entirely.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Truth cannot be defined,
although it can certainly be experienced.
But experience is not a definition.
A definition is made by the mind,
experience comes through participating.
If somebody asks, "What is a dance?" how can you define it?
But you can dance and you can know the inner feel of it.
God is the ultimate dance.
- Osho

You may as well laugh at life,
because it's certainly laughing at you.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

AN INSPIRED LIFE: I HAVE A CHOICE
My key to living an inspired life involves
Embracing my history,
Understanding the function of expectations
and gently learning to have none;
Recognizing the power of attentive and conscious choices.
In all circumstances I acknowledge this,
IN ALL THINGS AND ALL WAYS, I HAVE CHOICE.
My choice resides in my perspective.
While I certainly do not control climate
and markets and roadways and others,
I do control myself and my response
to all those circumstances. I do indeed.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

Laugh at Life - it's certainly laughing at you.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

are no authorities on love,

Priorities - what's really important -
health, and doing what one wants to do -
it's certainly not money.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

but I certainly still regard him as a friend.
- Peter Asher

myself a horseman by any means.
