23652. The writing is all done, so it’s all about verbalizing everything from point A to point B, and certainly there’s a bit of politics involved, so it’s a different thing. – Lindsey Buckingham

23653. They tried to get me to use a pick when I first joined the band. They had certain things they thought were appropriate. I tried to adapt as much as I could. – Lindsey Buckingham

23654. This time, there were no drugs involved. The hours were completely normal daytime hours. I think we were able to appreciate the interplay, where before we had taken it for granted. – Lindsey Buckingham

23655. Those 12 years, they were ambiguous at best. – Lindsey Buckingham

23656. You know, I was never totally thrilled with being a Fleetwood Mac member, but surprisingly, I was having such a good time reuniting with John, Mick, and Stevie. – Lindsey Buckingham

23657. Years on, Christine and John still have a deep love for each other, as do Stevie and I – we’ve been working together since I was 17. – Lindsey Buckingham

23658. Some days I would be there at ten in the morning and wouldn’t leave till ten at night, and the others would waltz in for a couple of hours and then leave, because I was doing that painting thing. And they were happy to see that being done. – Lindsey Buckingham

23659. When I work alone, my process is like painting. With Fleetwood Mac, it’s more like movie making. – Lindsey Buckingham

23660. When I work alone, it can be like dabbling with a canvas. Maybe you paint over bits, and it starts to form its own life and lead you off in a direction. It becomes an intuitive, subconscious process. – Lindsey Buckingham

23661. All of my style came from listening to records. – Lindsey Buckingham

23662. It’s really touching that we can come back after so long and care about making an album that says as much as this one does. And after all this time, we really do care about each other. – Lindsey Buckingham

23663. After a couple of failed attempts, I came up with a weird tuning where I was dropping the G string down a step so that it became a seventh, and it got me to a place where I could play all these figures fairly easily. It was not an easy thing to work out. – Lindsey Buckingham

23664. Another thing that was unique about working on this stuff was that I was engineering it. I used many of the things I had learned while I was away from the band. It sort of vindicated my decision to leave in ’87. – Lindsey Buckingham

23665. But by taking the time away, getting myself off the treadmill, and just slowing down and learning, I felt I had so much more to give back. And maybe that was something that needed to happen for all of us. – Lindsey Buckingham

23666. Confounding people’s expectations was a way to maintain integrity. – Lindsey Buckingham

23667. Even though I had pushed through the Tango album, it was just not a very good environment to be in on a daily basis. In many ways, this is the best time of my life. – Lindsey Buckingham

23668. Ironically, that was quite a bit of the appeal of Rumours. It’s equally interesting on a musical level and as a soap opera. – Lindsey Buckingham

23669. I didn’t take lessons, and I don’t know my scales. – Lindsey Buckingham

23670. I had to seal off my feelings about Stevie while seeing her every day and having to help her, too. But you get on with it. What was happening to the band was much bigger than any of that. – Lindsey Buckingham

23671. I just find things that work and embellish them. – Lindsey Buckingham

23672. I was playing a Fender Telecaster when I first joined. – Lindsey Buckingham

23673. I’m also married for the first time, and I have two kids. So there’s some kind of good karma right now. – Lindsey Buckingham

23674. I also learned to be more confident, to trust my instincts more. – Lindsey Buckingham

23675. When you become successful on the level that Fleetwood Mac did, it gives you financial freedom, which should allow you to follow your impulses. But oddly enough, they become much harder to follow. – Lindsey Buckingham

23676. Our stories are different; our pain is the same. – Betty Buckley

23677. So, when the discussion about not using the term feminist came up at a conference workshop, I couldn’t believe it. The more I listened, the more I felt the need to express my passion about my identity as a feminist. – Betty Buckley

23678. T Bone and I grew up together in Fort Worth, Texas. He had his own recording studio by the time he was seventeen years old. When we were both nineteen he made the first archival recording of my voice. – Betty Buckley

23679. T Bone is genius. The way they’ve recorded my voice and the instrumentation to these songs is really quite extraordinary. – Betty Buckley

23680. The pure connecting factor is that those of us who describe ourselves as feminists want equal rights for all people. – Betty Buckley

23681. The word, and the concept of feminism, was a gift because it gave me a sense of identity and a way of defining how I wished to live my life. – Betty Buckley

23682. The work that must be done for each woman to reconnect with her psyche and to give herself a chance to live her own life is essentially the same. The realization of the equality of all races, the equality of all beings is essential. – Betty Buckley

23683. We can’t compare stories. We can only know in our hearts that we are the same. That may be the best we can do. – Betty Buckley

23684. When there’s an opportunity to do more, we must. – Betty Buckley

23685. My two great loves are music and horses. – Betty Buckley

23686. Well, the teacher I studied with for nineteen and a half years was a man named Paul Gavert. He was a great lieder singer, so basically I’m a trained lieder singer because of that teacher. The teacher I currently study with – since 1995 – is Joan Lader, who also studied with Gavert. – Betty Buckley

23687. There’s a lot of maintenance that goes into being a professional singer. – Betty Buckley

23688. Everything good that I know was taught to me by great teachers and I feel like giving back and sharing the technique is the thing to do. – Betty Buckley

23689. It’s just a little ranch. Thirty-five acres. In Texas, if it’s not a thousand acres, it’s considered a ranchette. – Betty Buckley

23690. Broadway has changed tremendously from the early days when the shows were referred to as musical comedies. Musical Theater is now a more expanded art form. Back then, singer/actors were not the norm. From the 60’s to now, it is necessary to do it all to be a consummate Broadway performer. – Betty Buckley

23691. Feminism – the word – can give us a handle, a rallying point, a common ground, and help us build a bridge. Why not claim the gift of the word as a place to begin? – Betty Buckley

23692. For one thing, I teach my students what my teacher for twenty years, Paul Gavert, told me, ‘The voice follows… the voice follows everything about you… who you are.’ – Betty Buckley

23693. Good performance is about the capacity to focus and concentrate. – Betty Buckley

23694. I have never experienced racism in the feminist movement, so it concerned me to think that I was unable to see the subject clearly because I came from white, middle-class privilege. – Betty Buckley

23695. I love Mary Chapin Carpenter songs. I love her songs ‘Come On, Come On’ and ‘I Am A Town’, they’re two of my favorite songs. – Betty Buckley

23696. I was hugely relieved to discover there was a purpose for girls with loud voices. – Betty Buckley

23697. If we’re for one another, we’re feminists. The rest is semantics. – Betty Buckley

23698. It was critical to finding a way out. I had assumed young women knew the history of feminism and must have felt gratitude to the movement for the opportunities that the work we have done has afforded them. – Betty Buckley

23699. I had no words for these feelings. And then people started using the word Ms. Suddenly, there was this handle with which I could identify myself and understand why I felt so out of whack with the culture around me. – Betty Buckley

23700. What distinguishes the campaign finance issue from just about every other one being debated these days is that the two sides do not divide along conventional liberal/ conservative lines. – James L. Buckley

23701. The Court made an exception, however, in the case of candidates contributing to their own campaigns because of the rather reasonable presumption that a candidate is incapable of corrupting himself. – James L. Buckley

23702. They may then be willing to cast principled votes based on an educated understanding of the public interest in the face of polls suggesting that the public itself may have quite a different understanding of where its interest lies. – James L. Buckley

23703. As a consequence, the Court ruled that the limits on campaign spending violated the First Amendment, but it accepted the $1,000 limit on individual contributions on the ground that the need to avoid the appearance of corruption justified this limited constraint on speech. – James L. Buckley

23704. Under the circumstances, may I suggest another means of encouraging probity in elective office. I refer to term limitations, which can serve ends beyond that of saving congressional souls. – James L. Buckley

23705. What people fail to appreciate is that the currency of corruption in elective office is, not money, but votes. – James L. Buckley

23706. Unfortunately, the media, which are not at all reluctant to act in their own self-interest, have succeeded in equating reform in the public mind with further restrictions on just about everyone else’s freedom of political speech. – James L. Buckley

23707. One camp accepts the Court’s limits on contributions but urges the reinstatement of spending caps – even if this requires a constitutional amendment subjecting political speech, if not pornography, to government regulation. – James L. Buckley

23708. The kind of corruption the media talk about, the kind the Supreme Court was concerned about, involves the putative sale of votes in exchange for campaign contributions. – James L. Buckley

23709. Unfortunately, in today’s world we have to be reminded that the power of an oath derives from the fact that in it we ask God to bear witness to the promises we make with the implicit expectation that He will hold us accountable for the manner in which we honor them. – James L. Buckley

23710. Moreover, we are showing a dismaying tendency to recast God in Man’s image. – James L. Buckley

23711. It would seem, therefore, that this constitutional safeguard may no longer serve its original purpose, especially when, as we learned last year, some acts of perjury may now be acceptable – in this world, at least, if not the next. – James L. Buckley

23712. In the last analysis, of course, an oath will encourage fidelity in office only to the degree that officeholders continue to believe that they cannot escape ultimate accountability for a breach of faith. – James L. Buckley

23713. In rendering its decision in our case, the Supreme Court equated money with speech because these days it takes the first to make yourself heard. – James L. Buckley

23714. If enough people openly engage in conduct once considered reprehensible, we rewrite the rule book and assume that God, as a good democrat, will go along. – James L. Buckley

23715. I had hoped that the current presidential campaign debates might educate the public as to what is really involved in the ongoing controversy over campaign financing. – James L. Buckley

23716. I am persuaded that in the case of elected officials, the overwhelming temptation is to conclude that it is more important for your constituents that you be reelected than that you deal honestly with them. – James L. Buckley

23717. Given the difficulty of resisting such temptations over the longer run, a proper concern for the welfare of congressional souls may well be the ultimate argument in favor of term limitations. – James L. Buckley

23718. This source of corruption, alas, is inherent in the democratic system itself, and it can only be controlled, if at all, by finding ways to encourage legislators to subordinate ambition to principle. – James L. Buckley

23719. Once it becomes impossible for members of Congress to make a career of legislative service, the temptation to bend a vote for whatever reason may yield to the better angels of their nature. – James L. Buckley

23720. Maybe I’m too young to keep good love from going wrong, but tonight you’re on my mind, so you never know. – Jeff Buckley

23721. Words are beautiful but restricted. They’re very masculine, with a compact frame. But voice is over the dark, the place where there’s nothing to hang on: it comes from a part of yourself that simply knows, expresses itself, and is. – Jeff Buckley

23722. To young to hold on and to old to just break free and run. – Jeff Buckley

23723. She’s a tear that hangs inside my soul forever. – Jeff Buckley

23724. I’m lying in my bed, blanket is warm, this body will never keep me safe from harm. I still feel your hair, black ribbons of coal. Touch my skin to keep me whole. If only you’d come back to me. To feel you at my side, wouldn’t need no Mojo Pin to keep me satisfied. – Jeff Buckley

23725. All flowers in time bend towards the sun, I know you say there’s no one for you, But here is one. – Jeff Buckley
