I think in terms of emotions. And feelings. So sometimes what I say may not always be clear. But creatively, there's a lot to be said for that way of thinking.— Brian Wilson
The most lust Brian Wilson quotes you will be delighted to read
I still believe that something is right only when it feels right.
The only reason I'd ever get a sex change operation is to see what it's like to be right all the time.
If there's not love present, it's much, much harder to function.
When there's love present, it's easier to deal with life.
Summer means happy times and good sunshine.
It means going to the beach, going to Disneyland, having fun.
I approach my music-making as an art-form--something pure from the spirit to which I can add dynamics and marketable reality. Music is genuine and healthy and the stimulation I get from molding it and adding dynamics is like nothing else on earth.
Every now and then I hear voices in my head, but not very clear.
I can't understand what they are saying. It's a mental illness. I have been diagnosed as a manic depressive.
I have auditory hallucinations, I hear voices saying derogatory things, like I'm terrible and I'm going to die, and they're usually worse in the afternoon.
I'm doing good. I've had a slight nervous breakdown in the '60s. I got through that. And I got through the '70s. And I was in a doctor's program during the '80s and then I met Melinda and we've been together ever since. I've got a happy life.

I'm just a shy and retreating kind of person.
Sometimes I get in a real talkative mood - but not very often.
I sit and I write automatically. I don't really try to write. My subconscious mind takes over and writes the songs for me. Songs come very easily for me. When I'm inspired, it takes me 20 minutes to write a song.
People are part of my music. A lot of my songs are the result of emotional experiences, sadness, pain, joy, and exultation in nature and sunshine and so on...like 'California Girls' which was a hymn to youth.
I think about God, yes, and I wonder if there is a God.
And if there is a God, will God please help me through my hard trips.
Freedom and Liberty cannot exist without Individual Responsibilty.
Failure to exercise Individual Responsibilty forfeits your right to self-governance and delivers it to Government which, through force, will set the parameters of your life.
I get off on hearing other people's voices. I like voices: they're my favourite things on records.
Surfing music is dead. It was just a summer craze for kids on the beach. I'm finished with it.

I hate those old falsettos, I really do, and it's embarrassing since I've grown up.
I can write songs, I've had songs in movies, but I can't compose film scores, you know?

I was very, very financially secure my whole life. I have been very lucky to say that.
Gershwin inspired me very much. The concept of 'That Lucky Old Sun' was inspired by 'Rhapsody in Blue' - not influenced, but inspired.
The Beatles, the Rolling Stones and Phil Spector. Those were my idols.
I always do get a little bit paranoid when I get a lot of attention. But I get used to it.
You don't really know what to believe until the Government denies it.
I have an instinct for music, or a feeling about it, and I'll have my feelings guide my hands.
The idea of taking a song, envisioning the overall sound in my head and then bringing the arrangement to life in the studio...well, that gives me satisfaction like nothing else.
I consider myself to be a crusader of love.
I try to spread love around the world as best I can because I know I have a handle on love.
Love and mercy that's what you need tonight. Love and mercy to you and your friends tonight.
I meditate and I also think about meditation.
Which is funny. I think about Maharishi, about just the idea of meditating. It gives me something.

I like the piano - I'm always about 15 feet away from a piano.
I've never written one note or word of music simply because I think it will make money.
J.S. Bach was easily the greatest musical innovator in the history of the world. He was so advanced for his time. There's a spiritual depth to his music. You can listen to it and it's like meditation.
I listen to oldies but goodies stations, '60s and '70s music.
You say how you feel, and songs don't lie.
Songs are the most honest form of human expression there is--there's nothing that lies about a song.
