I think it's pretty bizarre, ... I think you look to music to help you through (growing old), and the music that's strongest in your soul is the stuff you heard as a kid. I do that all the time. I listen to old albums and there's almost a spiritual support there.

Politics in the United States consists of the struggle between those whose change has been arrested by success or failure, on one side, and those who are still engaged in changing themselves, on the other. Agitators of arrested metamorphosis versus agitators of continued metamorphosis.

The enemy is not just terrorism. It is the threat posed specifically by Islamist terrorism, by Bin Ladin and others who draw on a long tradition of extreme intolerance within a minority strain of Islam that does not distinguish politics from religion, and distorts both.
I had to stop drinking. The thing was, I didn't know how to do it. I needed to be dowsed in cold water and told not to be silly, so that's what I did in rehab-I dowsed myself in cold water and told myself not to be silly And I'm also quite spiritual, which helps me look after myself.

It overpowers our property that we are trying to sell and our business that has been there over 150 years. It is good to have some type of religion, as religion is good for the human soul, but I don't like people trying to shove their religion down my throat. That is overkill.

Through which your soul, exquisitely tortured,
Comes with visions not to be uttered
Into a realm of higher life.
