„Listening to as many guitar solos as possible is the best method for someone in the early stages. But saxophone solos can be helpful. They're interesting because they're all single notes, and therefore can be repeated on the guitar. If you can copy a sax solo you're playing very well, because the average saxophonist can play much better than the average guitarist.“

— Ritchie Blackmore, Ritchie Blackmore, in: Guitar Player. Vol. 7. (1973). p. 235: Answer to the question Does listening to solos performed on other instruments than the guitar help the beginning guitarist develop a personal style?

„I can embarrass myself very easily on guitar.“

— Joe Satriani American guitar player 1956
Context: I can embarrass myself very easily on guitar. It's funny because people say to me I can play anything; I'm God on the guitar. But I could make a big list of everything I can't play... I'm grateful that people don't notice that. As quoted in BAM Magazine (6 April 1990).

„That is a moment of magic from Hope Solo!“

— Ian Darke British association football and boxing commentator 1950
Context: Daiane, whose own goal started all the talking points today after seventy-four seconds. Seems a long, long time ago now. It was into this goal, now Brazil need her to put one in legitimately for them. Yes! Brilliant save from Solo, brilliant save! And that one is legal, and now that means, that if the United States put in the last two penalties, they will go into the semi-finals. That is a moment of magic from Hope Solo! Brazil v. United States http://www.listenonrepeat.com/watch/?v=r1PlC9mj-N0 (10 July 2011).

— Amelia Earhart American aviation pioneer and author 1897 - 1937
Context: In soloing—as in other activities—it is far easier to start something than it is to finish it. Almost every beginner hops off with a whoop of joy, though he is likely to end his flight with something akin to the D. T.'s. 20 Hrs., 40 Min. (1928), p. 16
