David Bowie Height

If you feel safe in the area you’re working in, you’re not working in the right area. Always go a little further into the water than you feel you’re capable of being in. Go a little bit out of your depth. And when you don’t feel that your feet are quite touching the bottom, you’re just about in the right place to do something exciting.

You don't become one of the most influential musicians without a reason. David Bowie has a thing or two to say.

On religion and spirituality.

Religion is for people who fear hell, and spirituality is for people who have been there.

On future.

Tomorrow belongs to those who can hear it coming.

Not running.

You can neither win nor lose if you don't run the race.

On his changes.

I don't make changes to confuse anyone. I'm just searching. That's what causes me to change. I'm just searching for myself.

Waking up one day.

One day I realized that I really needed to stop losing myself in my work and in my addictions. What happens is you just wake up one morning and feel absolutely dead. You can't even drag your soul back into your body. You feel you have negated everything that is wonderful about life. When you have fallen that far, it feels like a miracle when you regain your love of life. That's when you can begin really looking for a relationship. When you can appreciate the whole concept of giving to someone, not just taking.

On comfort.

Comfort comes into your house first as a guest, then as a host, then finally as the master.

How music is created.

Searching for music is like searching for God. They're very similar. There's an effort to reclaim the unmentionable, the unsayable, the unseeable, the unspeakable, all those things, come into being a composer and to writing music and to searching for notes and pieces of musical information that don't exist.

The effect of so many changes.

I re-invented my image so many times that I'm in denial that I was originally an overweight Korean woman.

On internet.

The Internet is merely a new means of communication, that's all it is. It serves the purpose of getting information, which it is fantastic at. I mean, I live by the Internet in terms of research and it's incredible - there's nothing that you can't find out about. It's not stopped me from going to bookshops but I must say that I don't go into as many because any book I want.

His trick to get on the stage for the first time.

As an adolescent, I was painfully shy, and withdrawn. I didn't really have the nerve to sing my songs on stage, and nobody else was doing them. I decided to do them in disguise so that I didn't have to actually go through the humiliation of going on stage and being myself.

Age vs. time.

Age doesn't bother me. So many of my heroes were older guys. It's the lack of years left that weighs far heavier on me than the age I am.

On his curiosity.

What I have is a malevolent curiosity. That's what drives my need to write and what probably leads me to look at things a little askew. I do tend to take a different perspective from most people.

Being more than a human.

I always had a repulsive need to be something more than human.

All cliches are true.

That's the shock: All cliches are true. The years really do speed by. Life really is as short as they tell you it is. And there really is a God - so do I buy that one? If all the other cliches are true... Hell, don't pose me that one.

What is art?

All art really does is keep you focused on questions of humanity, and it really is about how do we get on with our maker.

Best Art is created by artists for themselves.

All my big mistakes are when I try to second-guess or please an audience. My work is always stronger when I get very selfish about it.

You become what you were supposed to be...

I'm very at ease, and I like it. I never thought I would be such a family-oriented guy; I didn't think that was part of my makeup. But somebody said that as you get older you become the person you always should have been, and I feel that's happening to me. I'm rather surprised at who I am, because I'm actually like my dad!

On negative thinking.

I've never responded well to entrenched negative thinking.
