[When The First Record Came Out, I'd Go Down To Radio Stations Pretty Much Every Day To Get The Record Played, And I Would Walk In And They'd Tell Us How Much They Loved The Record, But They Weren't Sure How Much They Could Play It Because They Were Already Playing A Girl.]

Quotes About The World Being Cruel

"How easily we accept the fact that this is a varied world, with many races, cultures, and mores. In America we rejoice in this diversity, this pluralism, which makes up the rich pattern of our national being. We should learn to accept this pluralism in ourselves, to rejoice in the truth that we human being consist of a variety of moods, impulses, traits, and emotions … If we become pluralistic in thinking about ourselves, we shall learn to take the depressed mood or the cruel mood or the uncooperative mood for what is, one of many, fleeting, not permanent. As pluralists we take ourselves for worse as well as for better, cease demanding a brittle perfection which can lead only to inner despair. There are facets of failure in every persons makeup and there are elements of success. Both must be accepted while we try to emphasize the latter through self-knowledge." - Author: Joshua Loth Liebman
