John Mayer Quotes:
I wrote Room for Squares for me and I'm going to try my best to write the next record for me as well. The way I think it's going is that I'm writing for me and there are a lot of people around me that happen to agree with what I am writing.

I love soul music. There's an innocence to the classic rhythm and blues that you can't get anywhere else. You think today's music is vulnerable, there was nothing more sensitive than Sam Cooke. The original emo.

Life is like a box of crayons. Most people are the 8-color boxes, but what you're really looking for are the 64-color boxes with the sharpeners on the back. I fancy myself to be a 64-color box, though I've got a few missing. It's ok though, because I've got some more vibrant colors like periwinkle at my disposal. I have a bit of a problem though in that I can only meet the 8-color boxes. Does anyone else have that problem? I mean there are so many different colors of life, of feeling, of articulation.. so when I meet someone who's an 8-color type.. I'm like, "hey girl, magenta!" and she's like, "oh, you mean purple!" and she goes off on her purple thing, and I'm like, "no - I want magenta!" 

If you get half a million, at a certain stage you probably will get 4 million people, if they are able to hear it. The touring thing is unbelievable. It really is amazing from what we did the last tour even to what we are doing now. 

In a time when everything can be next day and ordered and put on credit and paid for, music to me is promise, all promise, very little realization. It's the promise of walking into a room with a guitar and not being sure you will leave with an idea that will take, not being sure it won't slip away from you. 

"I'd like to think the best of me was still hiding up in my sleeve." 

Sometimes I get so bold and I'm so confident about what I'm doing that I actually try to be more of a dork because it's a really liberating feeling to experience what it's like to not care. 

"Even if you think the flame has died, there's at least one lyric that'll hit that last hot spot, and then you'll find yourself as @#$%& as you were the day you lied and said you never wanted to see her again." 

"the trapper keeper is the genisis of OCD for my generation." 

I hope that what it comes down to at the end of the day is that people believe that I believe what I'm singing. It comes down to being believable. You don't have to be likeable; generally, though, I think I am. 

I like giving people something they don't want to miss the next time. It's a show with little twists and turns and curves. It has me being silly and stupid and compassionate and completely deep. 

I'm getting to a point where everything is becoming streamlined in my life. I'm learning how to stand onstage for two hours and play in front of thousands of people as if I am completely in the moment every moment. 

I'm not as surprised in going from playing 1,000 seats to 4,000 seats as I was from 100 to 500 seats. 

I'm not being trite. I'm not being a parody of myself, and in finding a new kind of color to adopt for myself, it's not this or that: it's singer-songwriter, but it's also blues guitar player, it's also 

I feel my shows are like a late-night talk show that we settle down and do every night. 

I feel strikingly domestic. We're in our own world with two busses and trucks. 

It is too easy to watch music coming out of people's mouths lately and you're not quite sure if it was written with the best of intentions
