I'm also married for the first time,
and I have two kids.
So there's some kind of good karma right now.
- Lindsey Buckingham

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

I didn't take lessons, and I don't know my scales.
- Lindsey Buckingham

You know, I was never totally thrilled with being a Fleetwood Mac member,
but surprisingly, I was having such a good time reuniting with John,
Mick, and Stevie.
- Lindsey Buckingham

Ironically, that was quite a bit of the appeal of Rumours.
It's equally interesting on a musical level and as a soap opera.
- Lindsey Buckingham

I was playing a Fender Telecaster when I first joined.
- 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

Even though I had pushed through the Tango album,
it was just not a very good environment to be in on a daily basis.
In many ways, this is the best time of my life.
- Lindsey Buckingham

That's the only way to do it.
Just like an actor.
You can get a great performance if you do a bunch of takes and edit it.
You find the moments and string them together.
- 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

Some days I would be there at ten in the morning and
wouldn't leave till ten at night,
and the others would waltz in for a couple of hours and then leave,
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

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,
things got worse in terms of psychology and drug use.
It was a large exercise in denial - in order for me to get work done.
- 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

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

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

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

When I work alone, it can be like dabbling with a canvas.
Maybe you paint over bits, and it starts to form its
own life and lead you off in a direction.
It becomes an intuitive, subconscious process.
- 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

Another thing that was unique about working on this
stuff was that I was engineering it.
I used many of the things I had learned while I was away from the band.
It sort of vindicated my decision to leave in '87.
- 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

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed
by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.
- widely misattributed to Mark Twain

it's the life in your years.

if in terms of ten years, plant trees;
if in terms of 100 years, teach the people.

but making the years count.
- Michele St. Amand

When a man you like switches from what
he said a year ago, or four years ago,
he is a broad-minded person who has courage enough
to change his mind with changing conditions.
When a man you don't like does it,
he is a liar who has broken his promise.
- Franklin Pierce Adams

Anger is a destructive emotion
that becomes instinctive over the years.

I had been dead for billions and billions
of years before I was born,
and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it.

"Mother Teresa Prayer"
People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
... Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you
of selfish, ulterior motives;
... Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some
false friends and some true enemies;
... Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
... Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
... Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
... Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
... Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
... Give the world the best you've got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.
We can do no great things - only small things with great love.
- although commonly attributed to Mother Teresa,
who kept a copy of this prayer on
the wall of her Calcutta orphanage,
this prayer was actually written by Kent Keith.

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

Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years.
We grow old by deserting our ideals.
Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.

artist should touch color -
not color used descriptively,
that is, but as a means of personal expression.
- Henri Matisse
