Fiona Apple quotes

I have a very steadfast tendency to parent myself, to monitor my development into the person I want to be. I've tried to keep the corruption minimal.

I wanted to write a happy song. I didn't know how.

Now I feel like whatever I do, no one can hurt me. I cannot be violated, I cannot be humiliated, I cannot be disregarded, I cannot be disrespected.

The way I feel about music is that there is no right and wrong. Only true and false.

I got a lot of problems, but I'm really good at intuiting what I need to do to be happy with whatever I create. I know when to stop myself, I know when to start, I know when to leave something alone. I guess I just kind of indulge that completely, and so I just take my time.

I'm incredibly impressed by people who organize to achieve a goal, and believe that they can make a difference and then go ahead and do just that. I think it's incredible.

For a while after the rape, I was afraid of my own sexuality, because I got raped right about the time when I started developing physically.

I don't care what people do. I don't care how people remember my albums. I do them for my own reasons.

I got drunk when I was five. Everybody gets drunk before they're 21.

I never thought I'd be in a position where people would be talking about my sexuality and saying how good I look in underwear.

I read on the Internet that I was dead.

There aren't many poster children for cool angst. Everybody thinks it's cool if you're the bad girl.

And if I'm being honest, I don't think I have an ex-boyfriend who would have something mean to say about me.

Five years from now I'm probably going to look back on the things I'm doing and cringe.

I also just accept that I might never want to write a song again.

I can bake. I made myself some nice French fries once. But otherwise I just eat out. Lots of salad bars.

I can't remember writing any of the songs that I've written.

I caved in to what people wanted me to do. I thought that they weren't going to like me if I didn't.

I dare anybody to look at me and say I'm anorexic. I'm so totally not.

I don't have a big thing about leaving my mark or being historic.
