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 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.
  • Somehow, it's dawning on me that I'm a more mature individual and I'm not a kid writing "Cherry, Cherry" anymore.
  • I already have "Sweet Caroline". Most of these people haven't heard "Hell Yeah" or "Man of God", but I see them and they're listening, and that's really all I want.
  • This is my job. Someone much greater than me gave me that job. He said, "You, you with that stupid look on your face - go out and sing until I tell you to stop." I haven't heard the word yet so I'm just going to keep doing it.
  • Love is the elixir of eternal youth.
