„You shout in your sleep.
Perhaps the price is just too steep.
Is your conscience at rest if once put to the test?“

—  David Gilmour
Context: You shout in your sleep. Perhaps the price is just too steep. Is your conscience at rest if once put to the test? You awake with a start to just the beating of your heart. Just one man beneath the sky, Just two ears, just two eyes. "Childhood's End", on Obscured by Clouds (1972)

„All the fears never voiced say you have to make your final choice.“

—  David Gilmour
Context: You find your eyes are growing moist. All the fears never voiced say you have to make your final choice. "Childhood's End", on Obscured by Clouds (1972)

„And so all things time will mend,
So this song will end.“

—  David Gilmour
Context: Who are you and who am I To say we know the reason why Some are born, some men die, Beneath one infinite sky? There'll be war, there'll be peace, But everything one day will cease, All the iron turned to rust, All the proud men turned to dust, And so all things time will mend, So this song will end. "Childhood's End", on Obscured by Clouds (1972)

„My technique is laughable at times. I have developed a style of my own, I suppose, which creeps around … I don't have to have too much technique for it.“

—  David Gilmour
Context: My technique is laughable at times. I have developed a style of my own, I suppose, which creeps around … I don't have to have too much technique for it. I've developed the parts of my technique that are useful to me. I'll never be a very fast guitar player. I don't really know what to say about my style. There's always a melodic intent in there. As quoted in Sounds : Guitar Heroes (May 1983)

„It is absolutely beautiful, isn't it?“

—  David Gilmour
Context: It is absolutely beautiful, isn't it? And its a sort of over two years before any of the other recordings she did. That is her singing at the age of 16, and having written those extraordinary lyrics — about whatever they're about. Listening to The Man with the Child in His Eyes

„I had a listen, I was intrigued … by this strange voice, and I went to her house, met her parents down in Kent, and she played me, it must have been forty or fifty songs, on tape, and I thought, I should try to do something“

—  David Gilmour
Context: I had a listen, I was intrigued … by this strange voice, and I went to her house, met her parents down in Kent, and she played me, it must have been forty or fifty songs, on tape, and I thought, I should try to do something. … We were making — Pink Floyd was making the Wish You Were Here album, and I think we had the record company people down at Abbey Road, in number 3, and I said to them "Do you want to hear something I've got? And they said "sure", so we found another room, and I played it to them, "The Man with the Child in His Eyes", and they said "Yep, thank you – we'll have it."

„Who are you and who am I
To say we know the reason why
Some are born, some men die,
Beneath one infinite sky?“
