Fiona Apple quotes

I'm not a control freak.

When you're surrounded by all these people, it can be even lonelier than when you're by yourself. You can be in a huge crowd, but if you don't feel like you can trust anybody or talk to anybody, you feel like you're really alone.

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.

But I honestly don't read critics. My dad reads absolutely everything ever written about me. He calls me up to read ecstatic reviews, but I always insist that I can't hear them. If you give value to the good reviews, you have to give value to the criticism.

For me, the best times are always going to be the most intense, the ones with the highest highs and the lowest lows.

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

What's really good is African drum music.

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

I don't know if anybody wants to mix their politics with their entertainment.

I know what my job is: I write the songs, I sing them, I play them on the piano.

I still don't know what Episcopalian means.

In a strange way, I'm way more comfortable onstage than anywhere else.

The quick success was a bit strange to get used to.

You can live your whole life in your brain and not experience what's around you. You go crazy that way.

You know, I've always thought that it would be really funny if somebody made a romantic comedy where absolutely everything went well from beginning to end.

Nothing that you do will ever feel good if you let people convince you that you have no choice.

If I respect myself and believe in what I'm doing, no one can touch me.

I would really like to go back to school. I would love it now.

Everybody sees me as this sullen and insecure little thing. Those are just the sides of me that I feel it's necessary to show because no one else seems to be showing them.

I really don't think anything I do is a mistake. It could be if I didn't learn from it.
