Anytime someone tells me that I can't do something, I want to do it more. Taylor S

If you're yelling you're the one who's lost control of the conversation.

Taylor Swift
I let people fill in the blanks on their own. If they want to think about their ex, that's fine. If they want to think about maybe who one of my exes is, then that's fine. And it might not be right, because I'm the only one who knows what these songs are really about. It's the one shred of privacy I have in the matter.
Taylor Swift

When I think about the things that cause me pain or the things that cause me trouble or frustration, it's not people asking for my autograph; it's people breaking my heart. That happens to you whether you've sold millions of records or whether you're taking classes at college. You're going to believe people when they say that they love you. I don't leave out details when I write songs about that. I try to make my songs as personal as possible because, ultimately, my music started out as just trying to turn my diary entries into something that was a piece of music. And that has never changed.

I was the girl who didn’t get invited to parties.
Taylor Swift

I don't think there's an option for me to fall in love slowly or at medium speed. I either do, or I don't.

Taylor Swift
I like the way the stories of my relationships sound to music more than the way they look in print, in gossip columns or in me talking about them in interviews. I think it's a better way of telling the stories.
Taylor Swift

Don't ever call a guy first. The thing they want the most is whatever they can't have. It sounds really juvenile, but it works.

Taylor Swift
It’s the most maddening, beautiful, magical, horrible, painful, wonderful joyous thing in the world, love
Taylor Swift

Rebellion is what you make of it. When you've been on a tour bus for two months straight, and then you get in your car and drive wherever you want, that can feel rebellious.

Taylor Swift
I've always felt music is the only way to give an instantaneous moment the feel of slow motion. To romanticise it and glorify it and give it a soundtrack and a rhythm.
