İşte seçme Morrissey vecizeleri:
On existence: “When I'm lying in my bed I think about life and I think about death and neither one particularly appeals to me.”
On being miserable: “What's the first thing I do when I wake up in the morning? Wish I hadn't.”
On dying: "I have an unswayable obsession with death. If there was a magical pill that one could take that would retire you from the world, I would take it." (NME, 1988).
On indolence: “Doing nothing gives me great pleasure. And believe me, I succeed wonderfully in it.” (Rock Sound, 1993)
On mental health: “I have seen one or two psychiatrists. They just sit and nod and doodle.”
On life goals: "Sometimes I wish I was just a simple drunkard." (Select, 1991).
On growing old: “Age shouldn’t affect you. You’re either marvellous or you’re boring, regardless of your age.”
On romance: “I do think it's possible to go through life and never fall in love, or find someone who loves you.”
On a life in music: “I lost myself to music at a very early age, and I remained there.” (Select, July 1991).
On not getting any: “That was the problem with the 'celibate' word because they don't consider for a moment that you'd rather not be, but you just are. I was never a sexual person.”
On addiction: “Music is like a drug, but there are no rehabilitation centres.” (Select, July 1991).
On regret: “Life would be so colourful if only I had a drink problem. ” (Vox November, 1990).
On honesty: “I lie a lot - it's really useful.” (Star Hits, 1987).
On the future: “I'm just happy being dumpy. Dumpy, fat and middle-aged.” (NME, 1989).
On blandness: “Don't talk to me about people who are 'nice' cause I have spent my whole life in ruins because of people who are 'nice'.”
On Oasis: “They are very tame to me. God bless Noel, I'm sure he'll always have a spot on 'Bob's Full House', but I search for something with more bite and rage.”
On dance music: “It's the refuge for the mentally deficient. It's made by dull people for dull people.” (Details, 1992).
On psychoanalysis: “[Sigmund Freud] just made people feel so neurotic about their lives. I mean, if you dreamt about a lampshade, it meant you wanted to be whipped by the local vicar or something.”
On modernity: “Whenever I go past Mcdonalds I get very, very angry.” (NME, 1989)
