I once went on the most grueling radio tour. Living in hotel rooms, sleeping in the backs of rental cars as my mom drove to three different cities in one day.

I'd like to think you don't stop being creative once you get happy.
Taylor Swift

No matter what happens in life, be good to people. Being good to people is a wonderful legacy to leave behind.

Taylor Swift
Spending a lot of time alone, gave me a lot of time to think. A lot of time to think gave me the time to write songs.
Taylor Swift

Fans are my favorite thing in the world. I've never been the type of artist who has that line drawn between their friends and their fans. The line's always been really blurred for me. I'll hang out with them after the show. I'll hang out with them before the show. If I see them in the mall, I'll stand there and talk to them for 10 minutes.

Taylor Swift
My attitude has always been if you get better and you see success, that should motivate you to even work harder, so that's kinda how I approach everything.
Taylor Swift

Why leave when you can stay, why stay if you have to go

Taylor Swift
For me, 'risky' is revealing what really happened in my life through music. Risky is writing confessional songs and telling the true story about a person with enough details so everyone knows who that person is.
Taylor Swift

You can draw inspiration from anything. If you're a good storyteller, you can take a dirty look somebody gives you, or if a guy you used to have flirtations with starts dating a new girl, or somebody you're casually talking to says something that makes you so mad - you can create an entire scenario around that.

Taylor Swift
There is a time for silence. There is a time for waiting you turn. But if you know how you feel and you so clearly know what you need to say you'll know it. I don't think you should wait. I think you should speak now.
