Norah Jones Quotes
"People think I'm really melancholy and romantic and all whispery. I'm not at all. I'm very direct."
"If I make a record I love, then somebody will like it. Maybe not everybody, but that won't matter."
"I want to check the record books and see how many fathers and daughters have won Grammys together."
"I've always loved to read. But sometimes I go for a year without reading, because I forget to."
