Morrissey Quotes:
Age gives you a great sense of proportion. You can be very hard on yourself when you're younger but now I just think 'well everybody's absolutely mad and I'm doing quite well'.

Age shouldn't affect you. It's just like the size of your shoes - they don't determine how you live your life! You're either marvellous or you're boring, regardless of your age.

Artists aren't really people. And I'm actually 40 per cent papier mache.

I do think it's possible to go through life and never fall in love, or find someone who loves you.

I've never intended to be controversial but it's very easy to be controversial in pop music because nobody ever is.

My parents were worried about me, certainly when I became so deeply interested in music and people like the New York Dolls who, at the time, were very peculiar indeed.

That was the problem with the 'celibate' word because they don't consider for a moment that you'd rather not be, but you just are. I was never a sexual person.

That's why I do this music business thing, it's communication with people without having the extreme inconvenience of actually phoning anybody up.

The Smiths was an incredibly personal thing to me. It was like launching your own diary to music.

Unfortunately, I am not homosexual. In technical fact, I am humasexual. I am attracted to humans. But, of course ... not many.

Pop music was all I ever had, and it was completely entwined with the image of the pop star. I remember feeling the person singing was actually with me and understood me and my predicament.

I think it's fascist and very, very cruel. To me there's something dramatically ugly about a person who can wear a dress for £6,000 when at the same time there are people who can't afford to eat. When she puts on that dress for £6,000 the statement she is making to the nation is: "I am the fantastically gifted royalty, and you are the snivelling peasants." The very idea that people would be interested in the facts about this dress is massively insulting to the human race

When I'm lying in my bed I think about life and I think about death and neither one particularly appeals to me.
