„The songwriting style, to me, is superior... there was a certain amount of joy in it, no matter how sad the song is.“

—  M. Ward, Context: The songwriting style, to me, is superior... there was a certain amount of joy in it, no matter how sad the song is. You get joy in listening to these Buddy Holly or Roy Orbison sad lyrics. I'm attracted to songs that have balance between the darks and the lights and giving them all equal opportunity. On songwriting styles of the post-World War II era, in an interview with Bob Boilen on All Songs Considered (17 November 2006) http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=15961159 (NPR)

„There is a certain amount of sham in . There is a certain amount of theatre.“

—  Alan Moore English writer primarily known for his work in comic books 1953
Context: There is a certain amount of sham in. There is a certain amount of theatre. It’s as loosely knit as that. We’re sort of coming out of the closet a bit more over the next couple of years. We’re going to be bringing out – manifesto’s too pushy a word – if it’s a theatre of marvels, we’re bringing out a theatre programme in the next couple of years. We’re working on it at the moment – our unified field theory of spookiness where we try to explain everything from language, consciousness, grey aliens to Rosicrucianism or whatever. It is a grand, mad theory which I’m working my best on at the moment to make it rational. It is an anti-rationalistic theory but I’m trying to couch it in rational terms so that it is not as insular as a lot of magic stuff.

„There must be a certain amount of decorum in the world, just as there must be a certain amount of light.“

—  José Martí Poet, writer, Cuban nationalist leader 1853 - 1895
Context: There are men who live contented though they live without decorum. Others suffer as if in agony when they see around them people living without decorum. There must be a certain amount of decorum in the world, just as there must be a certain amount of light. When there are many men without decorum, there are always others who themselves possess the decorum of many men. These are the ones who rebel with terrible strength against those who rob nations of their liberty, which is to rob men of their decorum. Embodied in those men are thousands of men, a whole people, human dignity.

„The best part of being a songwriter — beyond being able to make a living at it — is what I call the "heart payment" of a song.“

—  Paul Williams (songwriter) American composer, singer, songwriter and actor 1940
Context: The best part of being a songwriter — beyond being able to make a living at it — is what I call the "heart payment" of a song. That's when somebody comes up after a concert and says, "My mom was a single mom, and 'You And Me Against The World' was a really important song to us." Or "We got married to 'We've Only Just Begun'" or 'Evergreen.' Or "'I Won't Last A Day Without You' got me through some hard times.'" That's heart payment for a songwriter.
