Agnetha Faltskog quotes

My path has not been determined. I shall have more experiences and pass many more milestones.

There is a danger of changing too much in the search for perfection.

I can spot empty flattery and know exactly where I stand. In the end it's really only my own approval or disapproval that means anything.

I just want to live in peace and quiet.

There was a time when the music fell silent. Both within me and around me.

When I was 15 I became a full-time singer in a band. At 18 I made my first record.

When I was 25, Abba was formed. After Abba I made three solo albums. Maybe I have been productive enough.

I am uninterested in appearing in newspapers and on television. Many people think I am striking a pose - that I want to create a sense of shyness. But it's just not something I want to do. I overdosed.

It has always felt like a failure that Bjorn and I couldn't keep our family together. You never get it back, but to this day I don't regret splitting up. The reason behind our separation is one of those things I definitely don't want to go into!

When I'm living in the world of luxury and celebrity, which is where I found myself for a large part of my life, it's a walk-on part. Not a vital necessity, like it is for so many people. I enjoy it but I can see right through it!
