At some point, you grow out of being attracted to that flame that burns you over and over and over again.

I've written all my songs on every single one of my records, and that's what's been fun about looking back.

Taylor Swift
One thing I've tried to never do is make wish lists. I try to have a very steppingstone mentality about this whole thing, where as soon as you make one step you visualize the next step, not five steps ahead.
Taylor Swift

I definitely have body issues, but everybody does. When you come to the realization that everybody does that - even the people that I consider flawless - then you can start to live with the way you are. I've read interviews with some of the most beautiful women who have insecurities. And you look at them and you're like, 'How do you have? Name one thing wrong with yourself,' and they could name a handful.

I think I am smart unless I am really, really in love, and then I am ridiculously stupid.

I got to play Kim in Bye Bye Birdie, Sandy in Grease, and Maria in The Sound of Music. And it was so much fun for me, but the thing that I looked forward to the most was at the cast parties. After the shows they had karaoke machines set up and that's when I could sing country music.

Happiness isn't a constant. You get fleeting glimpses. You have to fight for those moments, but they make it all worth it.

Taylor Swift
I've always just wished that maybe someday people would care about the words that I wrote.

'Love Story' I wrote on my bedroom floor in about 20 minutes.

I didn't always have 14,000 people wanting to hang out with me on a Saturday night. Taylor S
