There were some things that I found I really enjoyed singing about;

There were some things that I found I really enjoyed singing about;

- Diana Krall

Sometimes I can't get out of the character because
the story is very intense.

but when you're writing it yourself,
it's very difficult to decide what to reveal.

I'd rather be figured out.

personal experience and imagination,

now this song is about 'my' broken heart.

I feel like I really don't have to prove anything at
this point other than what I'm doing.

When you drive by Radio City and you see your name
up there and it's only 'your' name.
I just went 'ooh'.

The album is a definite departure.
I haven't written original material before,
except for one song on my first album,
but Elvis and I did six songs together on this one.
- Diana Krall

It was probably when I met Jeff Hamilton,
the drummer I've been working with for the last 20 years.
He's the one who brought Ray Brown to hear me sing
at a restaurant in my hometown.
- Diana Krall

I love music so much I love what I do.
I work very hard at being the best musician I can be because I love it.
- Diana Krall

Well, you know, it's been interesting because an album
is just a snapshot of where you are at that time.

You have many different sides and this is a snapshot
of where you are at that time.
- Diana Krall

I mean, I don't think I would call Claus to do an album of big band tunes.

you have to keep in mind if you're going to work with Claus Ogerman.
You invite him to do what he does.
- Diana Krall

I like to interpret 'Call me a River',
as if I'm saying, 'Now you're telling me you love me after all that,
and I'm telling you to shove off.' That's my interpretation.
But I would never 'say' that because somebody else
might interpret the song in another way.
- Diana Krall

That's why these songs have lasted as long as they
have because they're just about feelings that don't change.
They are love songs, they are not specific,
those kinds of feelings don't change.
- Diana Krall

But the greatest thing about music is putting it out
there for people to figure out.
You want the listener to find the song on their own.
If you give too much away, it takes away from the imagination.
- Diana Krall

Where were you born?
Where is your home?
Where are you going?
What are you doing?

how close they were to success when they gave up.

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

I dream of things that never were, and ask "Why not?"

whose horizons are limited by the obvious realities.
We need men who can dream of things that never were.

if there were no suffering.

you should work as if there were -
to the very last minute - a chance to lose it.

can occur very quietly in the world, as if it were nothing at all.

Half of everything you were ever taught is wrong;
the question is which half.

to associate and to defend causes
which were for the moment unpopular.
- Edward R. Murrow

It is only when we truly know and understand
that we have a limited time on earth
and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up
that we will begin to live each day to the fullest,
as if it were the only one we had.
- Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

What if it were only an illusion?
Perhaps life is not as threatening as it appears.
Perhaps the greatest threat to our serenity
is our fear of the future -
our fear of the unknown.
Perhaps, as Franklin D. Roosevelt said,
"The Only Thing We Have to Fear Is Fear Itself."
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

If I were to wish for anything,
I should not wish for wealth and power,

Pleasure disappoints; possibility never.
- Soren Kierkegaard

Beginning today, treat everyone you meet
as if they were going to be dead by midnight.
Extend to them all the care,
kindness and understanding you can muster,

Your life will never be the same again.
- Og Mandino

one can do is confront human beings directly.

so you would want to be with the other tenth.

When we hate our enemies, we are
giving them power over us:
power over our sleep, our appetites,
our blood pressure, our health, and our happiness.

and nights into a hellish turmoil.
