„Everything just seems to take so much time. I don't know why. Time… evaporates.“

—  Kate Bush British recording artist; singer, songwriter, musician and record producer 1958
MOJO interview (2005), Context: There were so many times I thought, "I'll have the album finished this year, definitely, we'll get it out this year." Then there were a couple of years where I thought, "I'm never gonna do this." If I could make albums quicker, I'd be on a roll wouldn't I? Everything just seems to take so much time. I don't know why. Time… evaporates.

„It's always a source of anxiety, come Emmy time… People are so supportive and so kind, but they put ideas in your head that you don't want to hear. They go, 'I know you're going to win,' and then when you lose, those same people don't want to make eye contact with you. I don't know who's more embarrassed, me or them.“

—  Scott Clifton American television actor, musician, internet personality. 1984

„And at the same time it is a forced importance — you know, football stars and theatre stars — It is man-made so the press can feed off it.“

—  Kate Bush British recording artist; singer, songwriter, musician and record producer 1958
Context: Artists shouldn't be made famous. You know… they're just … as important as… um doctors, and priests … or maybe not as important sometimes, and yet they have this huge aura of almost god-like quality about them, just because their craft makes a lot of money. And at the same time it is a forced importance — you know, football stars and theatre stars — It is man-made so the press can feed off it. Profiles in Rock interview (December 1980)
