For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you. - Neil deGrasse Tyson's response on Reddit when asked "What can you tell a young man looking for motivation in life itself?"http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments..."

19. "I was not doing what I was told to do. And they sued me for making music "uncharacteristic of Neil Young." That was Geffen Rocords' biggeest mistake, I think. The mistakes all started when I caved and didn't give them Island in the Sun. They wanted me to be commercially successful, and I wanted to be an artist expressing myself-those two goals are not always compatible. I was expecting to have the same artistic freedom that I had at Asylum Records, but Geffen Records wanted me to be a smash, selling millions of records. Most important, Geffen was not a hands-on at Geffen Records. He had other people doing that. It showed."
Author: Neil Young

But maybe meeting someone like Neil Young for the first time made me anxious."
Author: Rick Rubin
22. "I don't think it's so hard to be commercial and interesting. Look at Prince, or Neil Young."
Author: Sufjan Stevens
23. "As much as I love heavy riffs, I like The Eagles, Neil Young, Elton John, Crowded House."
