As the first woman to win Album of the Year at the Grammys twice, I want to say to all the young women out there, there are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame.But if you just focus on the work and you don't let those people sidetrack you, someday, when you get where you are going, you will look around and you will know that it was you and the people who love you who put you there. And that will be the greatest feeling in the world. Thank you for this moment.

I love hugging people. I still hug everybody in my meet-and-greet lines.

Being excited about stuff on a daily basis, I'm so excited by it.
Taylor Swift

As supportive as my hometown is, in my high school, there are people who would probably walk up to me and punch me in the face. There's a select few that will never like me. They don't like what I stand for. They don't like somebody who stands for being sober, who stands for anything happy. They're going to be negative no matter what.

Fixing your heartbreak by getting into another relationship is not the way to live your life - you need to live it on your terms for a while.
Taylor Swift

I've wanted one thing for me whole life and I'm not going to be that girl who wants one thing her whole life then gets it and complains.

Taylor Swift
You can't lead me down that rode.
Taylor Swift

You have to believe in love stories and prince charming and that eventually you'll find your own happily ever after.

Taylor Swift
You are just too young to believe that everything is not going to be okay.
Taylor Swift

...we almost never speak I don't feel welcome anymorebaby what happened, please tell me?

Taylor Swift
I leave the genre labeling to other people. I really do. If I were to think too hard about it, that would stifle you creatively. If you think too hard about who other people want you to be as an artist, it stops you from being who you want to be as an artist.
