So there's some kind of good karma right now.

- Lindsey Buckingham

The writing is all done, so it's all about verbalizing
everything from point A to point B,
and certainly there's a bit of politics involved,
so it's a different thing.
- Lindsey Buckingham

That's basically what's going on now:
Everything is propaganda.
- Lindsey Buckingham

When I work alone, my process is like painting.
With Fleetwood Mac, it's more like movie making.
- Lindsey Buckingham

Confounding people's expectations was a way to maintain integrity.
- Lindsey Buckingham

Those 12 years, they were ambiguous at best.
- Lindsey Buckingham

They tried to get me to use a pick when I first joined the band.
They had certain things they thought were appropriate.
I tried to adapt as much as I could.
- Lindsey Buckingham

- Lindsey Buckingham

I just find things that work and embellish them.

When I work alone, it can be like dabbling with a canvas.

own life and lead you off in a direction.
It becomes an intuitive, subconscious process.
- Lindsey Buckingham

When Stevie and I joined the band, we were in the midst of breaking up,
as were John and Christine.
By the time Rumours was being recorded,

wouldn't leave till ten at night,

because I was doing that painting thing.
And they were happy to see that being done.
- Lindsey Buckingham

That's one strength that Stevie has.
She's really not a strong instrumentalist in any way.
Her instrument is her voice and her words.
And it keeps her focused on the very center of that.
- Lindsey Buckingham

But by taking the time away, getting myself off the treadmill,
and just slowing down and learning, I felt I had so much more to give back.
And maybe that was something that needed to happen for all of us.
- Lindsey Buckingham

The 12 years I was in Fleetwood Mac before were not
particularly happy years.
I was not in a very good place, psychologically,
when I left.
I didn't have a lot of confidence in what I was doing.
- Lindsey Buckingham

When you become successful on the level that Fleetwood Mac did,
it gives you financial freedom, which should allow
you to follow your impulses.
But oddly enough, they become much harder to follow.
- Lindsey Buckingham

After a couple of failed attempts, I came up with a
weird tuning where I was dropping the G string down
a step so that it became a seventh,
and it got me to a place where I could play all these figures fairly easily.
It was not an easy thing to work out.
- Lindsey Buckingham

I had to seal off my feelings about Stevie while seeing
her every day and having to help her,
too.
But you get on with it.
What was happening to the band was much bigger than any of that.
- Lindsey Buckingham

This time, there were no drugs involved.
The hours were completely normal daytime hours.
I think we were able to appreciate the interplay,
where before we had taken it for granted.
- Lindsey Buckingham

It's really touching that we can come back after so
long and care about making an album that says as much as this one does.
And after all this time, we really do care about each other.
- Lindsey Buckingham

Another thing that was unique about working on this
stuff was that I was engineering it.

It sort of vindicated my decision to leave in '87.
- Lindsey Buckingham

We don't stop playing because we grow old;
we grow old because we stop playing.

Some days are simply meant for playing.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves,
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.
- Marianne Williamson

You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure about you.
We were born to manifest the glory of God that is within us.
- Marianne Williamson

Life is a game - a game you can never win.
You already know the final score: Life 1, You 0.
Doesn't mean you can't have fun playing.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The greatest battle of all is simply... Life.
This is no child's game. This is the big one -
the Super Bowl - the Game of all games.
The rules of Life are unwritten and unknown.
Perhaps, one could say that there are no rules.
The Judge has ultimate power.
She can call the game at any time - for any reason.
The penalties in the Game are completely arbitrary -
in both timing and severity.
Penalty for what, we ask?
The Judge is silent.
How can I win the Game?
"You can never win," comes the answer,
"So just take pleasure in playing the Game."
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Every few seconds it changes - up an eighth,
down an eighth -it's like playing a slot machine.
I lose $20 million, I gain $20 million.

no creative work has ever yet come to birth.

the imagination is incalculable.

the world is when one is playing golf.

The fastest way to succeed is to look as if you're
playing by somebody else's rules,
while quietly playing by your own.

Life is like playing a violin solo in public and learning
the instrument as one goes on.

Money was never a big motivation for me,
except as a way to keep score.
The real excitement is playing the game.
- Donald Trump

Personally, I have fond memories of playing
on slippery rocks on the banks of a rushing river
as a child and hitchhiking in college.
To those who say, "But times are different now,"
I reply that statistically life is much safer now
than in the 1950s, with regard to both crime and accidents.
What has changed is our attitudes.
In those years, a broken leg from falling off a swing
or the back of a tractor was just part of childhood -
an excuse for gathering autographs.
Today that broken leg would be a source
of outrage and probably lawsuits.
I long for a simpler time when life was taken less seriously.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

If you aren't playing well, the game isn't as much fun.
When that happens I tell myself just to go out and
play as I did when I was a kid.
- Thomas J. Watson

God is a comedian, playing to an audience too afraid to laugh.
- Voltaire

I never did say that you can't be a nice guy and win.
I said that if I was playing third base and my mother
rounded third with the winning run,
I'd trip her up.
- Leo Durocher

The idea was to make a movie ourselves with everyone playing a cameo role.
Preferably before we all go, 'cos poor old Charlie Wilson was murdered,

with these incredible guys and hearing them.
- Arto Lindsay

One thing about playing the real jazz is that you can't count it.

harps and 10 percent playing out of tune.

I'd draw the curtains.
- Bill Shankly

Tennis is a psychological sport, you have to keep a clear head.
That is why I stopped playing.
- Boris Becker

In our early period we pretty much survived or perished

and playing lots of shows.
