Neil Diamond's Quotes

  • It's very difficult for me to say "I love you" but to sing "I love you" for me is easier.
  • My voice is unadorned. I don't try for perfection. I try to be honest and truthful and soulful with the voice I have. If I make mistakes in notes, or there are cracks in notes, I don't fix them. That's the way it is.
  • I'm not there to entertain people. We're there to do something together.
  • I never expected that I would be doing this for as long as I've been doing it. So looking back and seeing that it's been over 40 years since the first hits makes you think, "Is there a time that you stop?". But I don't think I'm ever going to stop. It's the only challenge I have left in my life.
  • I want to know what marathon runners do. Because I do the same thing. I run a two-hour marathon every time onstage. So I have my electrolytes kept at a certain level, and I do my carb-loading after the shows for the next night.
