Lionel Richie's Quotes

  • Lionel Richie, love song, okay, thank you very much, good-bye. And all of a sudden I realized that, in my career, what has made my career has always been the surprises.
  • So much of my career has been about saying things the way people say them, using melodies not that I can sing but that the people can sing.
  • I think the whole world is dying to hear someone say, "I love you". I think that if I can leave the legacy of love and passion in the world, then I think I've done my job in a world that's getting colder and colder by the day.
  • I find the greatest songs in the world come out of pain, and I don't like it! Here's what it does: It strips away all of your facade. It makes you so honest. It's cleansing.
  • By growing up in Alabama, I had a melting pot of the whole pie: R&B, gospel, country.
