James Taylor Quotes:
Being on a boat that's moving through the water, it's so clear. Everything falls into place in terms of what's important and what's not.

Certain things in life are more important than the usual crap that everyone strives for.

Fortunately, it doesn't seem to have made a lot of difference to my audience that I'm as bald as a billiard ball!

I believe 100 percent in the power and importance of music.

I believe musicians have a duty, a responsibility to reach out, to share your love or pain with others.

I don't know much about God. But if everything does originate with God, then certainly songs do as well.

I don't read music. I don't write it. So I wander around on the guitar until something starts to present itself.

I don't take compliments very easily. I think most musicians suffer from low self-esteem to some extent.

I don't think anyone really says anything new.

I started being a songwriter pretending I could do it, and it turned out I could.

I think people are isolated because of the nature of human consciousness, and they like it when they feel the connection between themselves and someone else.

I think that we're all totally isolated beings and always will be.

I'm very unstable; there's no stability in a musician's life at all. You live on a bus or on the road hand to mouth and you don't know where your money's coming from.

If I were to try to identify a turning point I'd say that was it - getting clean.

If the gig's going really well, I'm incredibly happy on stage and really feel good about my life and things.

If you think my music is sentimental and self-absorbed, I agree with you.

It is a process of discovery. It's being quiet enough and undisturbed enough for a period of time so that the songs can begin to sort of peek out, and you begin to have emotional experiences in a musical way.

It is the most delightful thing that ever happens to me, when I hear something coming out of my guitar and out of my mouth that wasn't there before.

It's hard to find a way forward. When you're 18 it happens in huge chunks every day, but after 20 years, growth is much more costly.

Knowing when to quit is probably a very important thing, but I just am not ready.

Music is like a huge release of tension.

Once you get that two-way energy thing going, everyone benefits hugely.

Sobering up was responsible for breaking up my marriage. That's what it couldn't stand.

Somehow it helps just to take something that's internal and externalize it, to see it in front of you.

That's the motivation of an artist - to seek attention of some kind.

The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time.

There'll come a writing phase where you have to defend the time, unplug the phone and put in the hours to get it done.

Time will take your money, but money won't buy time.

We all have to face pain, and pain makes us grow.

When I cleaned up some 17 odd years ago, I felt terrible for about six months. The only thing that gave me any real relief was strenuous physical activity.

You have to choose whether to love yourself or not.
