And I look forward to the time when I can become more
by Stone Gossard

And I look forward to the time when I can become more
indulgent with my songwriting.
But this band is a family, and it's a process that
we have to grow with together.
- Stone Gossard

You know, at 35 or at 38 or 40 you really start to
see what your body could look like if you just don't
do anything all winter long.
So that's another motivating factor,
our vanity.
- Stone Gossard

We may take breaks and do other things,
but we feel we'll ultimately have Pearl Jam as a family.
- Stone Gossard

I think if you exercise, your state of mind -
my state of mind -
is usually more at ease,
ready for more mental challenges.
Once I get the physical stuff out of the way it always
seems like I have more calmness and better self-esteem.
- Stone Gossard

 

I like rhythmic things that butt up against each other in a cool kind of way.
- Stone Gossard

I really enjoy not getting in a car and running errands on bikes.
- Stone Gossard

- Stone Gossard

Well, you go to Holland and everybody's on a bike -
nobody would think to have a car.
- Stone Gossard

A lot of fun stuff happens when you go out on a bike
compared to when you're in a car.
You're more in the environment.
It's enjoyable.
Even when It's raining It's still fun.
- Stone Gossard

Dave played an important part in our growing,
but change occurs.
- Stone Gossard

It would be great to take one city street and turn
it into a pedestrian corridor and see what kind of
effect it has on the businesses in that area -
It's the future I think.
- Stone Gossard

I walked to Seward School first through fourth grade.
It's just amazing to me now that we'd walk down 10th Avenue on Capitol Hill.
- Stone Gossard

I liked the banana-seat bikes with the high handlebars -
maybe a card in the wheel could have been part of it.
- Stone Gossard

If it had remained always my band, my natural tendency
would have been to get more complex and arrange things more and more.
That wouldn't necessarily be good for Eddie,
or anyone else in the band.
- Stone Gossard

There's been a lot of role reversal going on in the band.
The roles people have been playing for a long time will always be there,
but everybody's willing to try on different outfits.
- Stone Gossard

Eddie is a natural leader.
Jeff and I have been very much in control of previous bands we've worked in.
But the way Eddie grew into being the leader of this
band was the most gradual,
slow and respectful process that I've ever been involved in.
- Stone Gossard

It's really comforting for me and Jeff,
at least, that after 12 years we finally feel we've
reached a place where we can be more honest,
real and loving with each other.
And we're finally in a band that we know is good,
and deserves the credit it's getting.
- Stone Gossard

That's not to say Eddie's never done anything malicious.
But he never grabbed power for power's sake.
His position was gained only because he has that energy,
and that's naturally where he ended up.
- Stone Gossard

Call it holistic or holographic thinking,
it's been quite effective imagining the world's problems
are all right in front of you on a smaller scale with your band.
You deal with those relationships, and that's where
real major change begins.
- Stone Gossard

It's a very complex scenario, and certainly Dave was,
and is, not the only person in Pearl Jam with personality flaws.
Everybody in this band exhibits some form of neurotic behavior.
And we couldn't find a balance, a mutual respect for each other.
- Stone Gossard

I've seen neighborhoods that I would have never driven
though because I'm riding my bike,
because I'm looking for side roads, looking for maybe
more hills or less hills depending if I'm exercising or not.
You see a lot more, and you get the flow of a city a lot more.
- Stone Gossard

And I remember as a second or third grader having some
autonomy to go to the store if I felt like it,
walk home, take my time, kick the can.
We were on our own schedule after school,
so that was cool.
- Stone Gossard

But Eddie does not make all the decisions.
Eddie can listen to reason; Eddie can be swayed or
talked in or out of certain things.
Eddie allows other people to lead in this band and
to have certain roles that are very fundamental to
the decision-making process.
- Stone Gossard

When one door closes, another opens.
But often we look so long, so regretfully,
upon the closed door,
that we fail to see the one that is opened for us.
- Helen Keller

What we see depends mainly on what we look for.

Stop doing it long enough to get a glimpse
of what the change would actually look like.

Obstacles are like wild animals.
They are cowards but they will bluff you if they can.
If they see you are afraid of them...
they are liable to spring upon you;
but if you look them squarely in the eye,
they will slink out of sight.
- Orison Swett Marden

It all depends on how we look at things,
and not how they are in themselves.

I will say to myself: "That Is The Face Of God."

Very often, that individual is crazy.

And never, never, to forget.
- Arundhati Roy

is that they trigger confusion in us
that we don't feel brave enough or sane enough to deal with.
To the degree that we look clearly and compassionately at ourselves,
we feel confident and fearless about looking into someone else's eyes.
- Pema Chodron
