Yes! I did [grow up on a Christmas Tree farm], so this is a good season for me. I was too young to help with the hauling of the trees up the hills and putting them onto cars. So, it was my job to pull off the preying mantis pods off of the Christmas trees. The problem with that is if you leave them
'Love Story' I wrote on my bedroom floor in about 20 minutes. Taylor S
I don't have big security guards. I don't have an entourage.
Different phases of your life have different levels of deep, traumatizing heartbreak, and in this period of my life, my heart was not irreparably broken. So itâ€™s not as boy-centric of an album, because my life hasnâ€™t been boy-centric.
I like things you can touch and things you can keep, because every bit of communication we have is ephemeral in nature. You can just delete an e-mail and it's like it was never there.
My parents have always been very respectful of me so Iâ€™ve always been really respectful of them. My worst fear is to let them down so thatâ€™s why I donâ€™t misbehave.
I suffer from girlnextdooritis where the guy is friends with you and that's it.
If I could go back I wouldn't change anything. If I was popular I would have never left my bubble. I wouldn't have ever tired to do anything different. I would have never become happy.
My parents taught me never to judge others based on whom they love, what color their skin is, or their religion.
I'm thankful that when I go to bed at night, that I have been myself that day. And, I have been myself all the days before that.
I've wanted one thing in my life. I don't want to be that girl that gets that one thing then complains.
When you are missing someone, time seems to move slower, and when I'm falling in love with someone, time seems to be moving faster.
I love to write honest songs that name real people, then get up onstage and live out those emotions in front of 15,000 people.
My confidence is easy to shake. I am very well aware of all of my flaws. I am aware of all the insecurities that I have.
Faith Hill is a big role model.
I have rules for a lot of areas of my life. Love is not going to be one of them. Taylor Sw
I'm always worried about everything. Like spiders. Taylor S
And I'm dying to know, is it killing you like it's killing me? And the story of us looks a lot like a tragedy now.
It's so much easier to like people, and to let people in, to trust them until they prove that you should do otherwise. The alternative is being an iceberg.
I can imagine it's hard to make a relationship last. I wouldn't know.
In the future, artists will get record deals because they have fans-not the other way around...The only memento 'kids these days' want is a selfie. It's part of the new currency, which seems to be 'how many followers you have on Instagram'.
My imagination is a twisted place. Taylor S
I think, a lot of times when you meet someone, you feel like you need to appear like you're not interested in them so that they'll be more interested in you. But what happens when you start showing him that you actually like him? What's he gonna do then? Play the tape forward; how do you keep a guy
We learned more from a 3 minute record than we ever learned in school
If you have something about yourself that's different, you're lucky. It's not a curse.
Anything you put your mind to and add your imagination into can make your life a lot better and a lot more fun.
In life and love, you learn that there comes a time to let go and move on.
No amount of vintage dresses gives you dignity
Since I was old enough to understand what a songwriter/producer is, I've had a curiosity about how Max Martin creates what he creates. I wanted to see that happen. I wanted to be there. I wanted to learn from him.
