Wes Borland quotes

There may be something good in silence. It's a brand new thing. You can hear the funniest little discussions, if you keep turning the volume down. Shut yourself up, and listen out loud.

Guys are idiots, till they're what, 40 years old.

All I want to do is write songs about funny characters I made up.

I almost shouldn't be in Limp Bizkit; it's like I got matched in the factory with the wrong band.

I don't feel like singing should be taken lightly. It's one of the hardest things I've ever done, but it's coming along.

I don't feel there's any kind of pain in my life.

I have nothing to complain about.

I would love to put out music that was just stunning or soul-baring or whatever. But I don't think I have the voice for it.

I'm always looking at other artists and trying to get inspired by different things.

I'm too old to be farting around with stuff that isn't precisely what I want to do.

I've always wanted to be a songwriter and a storyteller and somebody who conveys a feeling to the listener or the viewer.

It took me a long time to find my voice as a singer, and I'm happy that I did.

It's always a pleasure when you can compose guitar parts from a strong vocal and not just put the melody on top of guitar riffs.

Music has completely taken over every aspect of my life and ruined everything.

Real family values have gone down the drain in modern families.

Selling records is fantastic. But if you're not loving what you do, and if everybody is throwing knives at you, it can get old very fast.

We're gonna totally sell out and try to dominate the world.

I could have probably gone on and still played the part of the guitar player of Limp Bizkit, but musically I was kind of bored. If I was to continue, it would have been about the money and not about the true music, and I don't want to lie to myself, or to them or to fans of Limp Bizkit.

I've accepted the fact that Limp Bizkit is my band, one that I'm a part of, a band that I've built from the beginning. It does me no good to be in somebody else's band playing their music, like Marilyn Manson or Korn. Being in Limp Bizkit allows me to be myself.

I've never been in a band where someone goes, 'Ah, I've got the perfect name! And it's because I climbed Mount Fuji, and at the top a golden dove came down...' It's always a bunch of guys sitting around going, 'How about Rotten Chipmunks?'
