„I've never had any other loving heartfelt desire. From the minute I heard music I knew why I was born.“

—  Julie Gold

Asked what she might be if she were not a musician, in an interview with Angela Page on Folk Plus WJFF Radio (24 June 2000) http://www.wjffradio.org/FolkPlus/interviews/Gold.html
Contexto: I've never had any other loving heartfelt desire. From the minute I heard music I knew why I was born. To make music to play to listen to music, and for some reason I have been lucky enough to llive this beautiful life as a musicisan. I don't know. I love all things "nature". I'm an animal lover, but I don't have the smarts to be a vet, or the heart to have been a vet cause I cry over any wounded animal. … I might have been maybe a zoo keeper helping feed the animals. Feeding or petting the big cats or whatever. I don't know what else I would have done, because I love music too much. For anyone who has that calling and is trying also to make a living at it, it is really hard. Getting gigs and getting listened to. Getting respect, it's hard. Its what bonds us all because we have been so rejected and dejected. Yet we know in our hearts why we are here.
