Anything that encourages people to pick up an instrument and play, I'm fully behind. Taylor Swif
Having room to run and having just the space to use your imagination and create stories out of everyday life, I think that had a lot to do with me wanting write. And write songs
I'm only me when I'm with you.
One of my big fears is people saying my songs are all starting to sound the same.
For everything I do, I think about a 6-year-old girl and her mom that I saw at my concert last night. I think about what those two individuals would think if I were at a club last night. I never want to be arrested, and I never want to get a DUI, those are my moral values.
As I grow up, the lessons I learn in love and relationships and how we treat each other are hopefully maturing - hopefully.
I'm a girls' girl. I have guy friends, but the problem with having guy friends is, like, I always get linked to them, and they'll end up in a slideshow of people I've apparently dated on the Internet.
I didn't always have 14,000 people wanting to hang out with me on a Saturday night. Taylor S
My ultimate goal is to end up being happy. Most of the time. Taylor Swif
Promise me this, that you'll stand by me forever. But if God forbid Fate should step in and force us into a goodbye. If you have children someday, when they point to the pictures please tell them my name. Tell them how the crowd went wild, tell them how I hope they shine.
I really like my life right now. I have friends around me all the time. Iâ€™ve started painting more. Iâ€™ve been working out a lot. Iâ€™ve started to really take pride in being strong. I love the album I made. I love that I moved to New York. So in terms of being happy, Iâ€™ve never been closer to
I think the perfection of love is that it's not perfect.
'Love Story' is actually about a guy that I almost dated. But when I introduced him to my family and my friends, they all said they didn't like him. All of them!
When I get to tell a story through music videos or TV, it's all about finding the story that I want to tell, so I'm definitely open to acting roles, it just depends on the story.
I think fearless is having fears but jumping anyway.
I go to Wal-Mart all the time. The one in my hometown of Hendersonville, Tenn., is open 24 hours, so I go there a lot to buy DVDs and stuff like that.
I am getting to the point where the only love worth being in is the love worth singing about.
We were built to fall apart and fall back together.
I get so excited when a song I wrote that's very personal to me goes No. 1 and I look down and see people singing the words back to me.
I would like to do a duet with Taylor Hanson, because I have loved Hanson since I was 8. Taylor Swif
Believe in everything you do. Believe in your mistakes and grow from them.
Just being a human being, Iâ€™ve realized that before every big problem you create for yourself, before every huge mess you have to clean up, there was a crucial moment where you couldâ€™ve just said no.
I'm pretty pale. In high school I was insecure and thought it'd be cool to go to a tanning bed. Now I just let it look the way it looks.
One element of Madonna's career that really takes center stage is how many times she's reinvented herself. It's easier to stay in one look, one comfort zone, one musical style. It's inspiring to see someone whose only predictable quality is being unpredictable.
Anytime someone tells me that I can't do something, I want to do it more.
Keeping your emotions all locked up is something thatâ€™s unfair to you. When you clearly know how you feel. You should say it.
I think songwriting is the ultimate form of being able to make anything that happens in your life productive.
When I was 9 or 10, I used to get all the lead roles because I was the tallest person. But my interest in music soon drew me to country music. I was infatuated with the sound, with the storytelling. I could relate to it. I can't really tell you why. With me, it was just instinctual.
It's pretty intense writing about my own life, my own struggles. Taylor Swif
When I was a teenager I felt like we were always being stereotyped as being really intense and dramatic and passionate and hopelessly romantic and excitable, now in retrospect I think I need to let you know those things are amazing. I hope you never lose those things.
