“I feel confident imposing change on myself. It’s a lot more fun progressing than looking back. That’s why I need to throw curve balls.” (David Bowie)


“As an adolescent, I was painfully shy, withdrawn. I didn’t really have the nerve to sing my songs on stage, and nobody else was doing them. I decided to do them in disguise so that I didn’t have to actually go through the humiliation of going on stage and being myself.” (David Bowie)


“Glam really did plant seeds for a new identity. I think a lot of kids needed that – that sense of reinvention. Kids learned that however crazy you may think it is, there is a place for what you want to do and who you want to be.” (David Bowie)


“Fame itself… doesn’t really afford you anything more than a good seat in a restaurant.” (David Bowie)


“The truth is of course is that there is no journey. We are arriving and departing all at the same time.” (David Bowie)
