Enlightenment, don't know what it is. It's up to you, the way you think.

What you see is what you get.

The blues - there's no black and white - it's the truth.
Van Morrison

I write songs. Then I record them. And later, maybe I perform them on stage. That's what I do. That's my job. Simple. I don't feel comfortable doing interviews. My profession is music, and writing songs. I like to do it, but I hate to talk about it...Music is spiritual. The music business is not. Being famous was extremely disappointing for me. When I became famous it was a complete drag and it is still a complete drag.

Van Morrison
I've never felt like I was born with a silver spoon at all, although I've felt like howling at the moon a lot of times!
Van Morrison

Singing is my profession - there is no plan B. Van Morr

I went back to Belfast and started a club, the Maritime. No one had thought about doing a blues club, so I was the first.

I think when you get past your second album, it all becomes something of a routine. So you have to struggle against that, find a way of making what you do sound fresh and new each time.

Van Morrison
Oh won't you stay Stay a while with your own ones Don't ever stray Stray so far from your own ones 'Cause the world is so cold Don't care nothing for your soul That you share with your own ones.
Van Morrison

Let go into the mystery. Let yourself go. And when you open up your heart, you get everything you need. Baby there's a way and a mystic road. You've got to have some faith to carry on, you've got to open up your heart to the Son.

Van Morrison
In order to win you must be prepared to lose sometime. And leave one or two cards showing. Van Morriso
