Pay no attention to what the critics say; no statue has ever been put up to a critic.

Society is becoming less and less transparent.

People no longer know where decisions that substantially affect their lives are taken, nor by whom, nor how.

Since I started in motor racing I've worked with people from all over the world.

We are all here to go racing and prejudice will never play any part in that.

Under-representation of women and other inequality among researchers is a problem that will not solve itself as women acquire competence.

Microsoft isn't evil, they just make really crappy operating systems.

So much is man the slave of his heart that he will shut his eyes to what does not please him and believe all that he hopes.

That music and the lyrical aspects of Razorblade Romance is so personal to me that, now with me being grown up a bit and meeting new people and doing new things, it makes me look at the same things I was writing about back in the day through a different colored lens.

Music's always been really cathartic.

It's the best drug for me to get away from the everyday pressures just for a second via a good song.

Yeah I'm still writing. I've got about 14 tracks now. But we've been on tour so we haven't had time to get back to a rehearsal place.

Women are always beautiful.

Well, for us, it's always better not to have too many expectations and to just go with the flow because then it's always a big plus no matter what happens.

We're trying to have the band create something beautiful that hopefully one day, 20 years from now, can be picked up by a kid and hopefully have the same effect that Neil Young had on me, or Led Zeppelin or Black Sabbath.

We started playing music from an early age and so we wasn't really aware of that side of it, the weird thing is the more successful you get the more free booze and drugs you get, they should be given to the bands who don't have the money.

Unfortunately we just toured the East and West coasts so we didn't run into any rednecks.

There's always reasons to make mistakes.

Because then you do new mistakes next time. So they're beautiful mistakes.

The guys in Kiss use some make up too so at first it was exiting.

I've almost stopped using make-up nowadays.

Talking about covers, whether visually or sonically, if a particular combination of notes struck a chord in your heart in a way that you want to be a part of it by covering that song, then there's nothing wrong with it.

Some genres I'm not a huge fan of but there are always exceptions that break the rules. There are always a few people doing it in a way weird enough to grab my attention.

So basically, I think music at its best can be everything.

It can be totally stupid and very intellectual and emotional at the same time. I don't think all those things shut each other out.

Music for me is an emotional thing and it really does make me happy.

It's not a tool for me to get fame or see my face in the papers or anything like that. It's about the fact that I really do enjoy it.

Los Angeles and New York are the big centers of the music industry worldwide so of course it can be hard for newcomers who don't know what to expect from the music business.

It's the same with visual arts, you have some really cool, wonderful striking images that make you think and then again you have wonderful striking images that just take you away from the existing world for a second. And I like the latter a bit more.

It's like that with what sort of ideas people outside of the band have of HIM.

They all see it through a different lens as well which is beautiful. Hopefully, it makes it an endless topic of conversation.

I've got asthma. When I was 17 I forgot to take my medication and was taken to a hospital for almost two weeks. After that I've taken better care of my illness.

I've always been a huge reggae fan.

I'm living my dream right now. I get to make music, perform and travel.

I'm a huge fan of James Dean, that got me started. Nowadays I smoke four packs in a day.

I'm a collecting maniac and I buy a lot of books and records. I have over thousand cds.

I think if we keep on doing good music and people like us and they buy the magazine because we are in the magazine then they cant basically hate us hopefully.

I love Johnny Cash but I don't love country music that much.

I like to listen to mellow stuff on the road like Travis, as we are constantly surrounded by rock music on tour and so its nice listening to mellow stuff. Obviously back at home I listen to a lot more rock music.

I haven't travelled that much before so this is the first time I get to see the big cities of Europe. I've never even been to US.

I have never acted in one and I'm not at all interested to do so either.

Hopefully it will be possible to get all our other albums in American shops one day so if people are interested they can hear it but I'm hoping that people are going to be interested in what we are going to do, not just what we've done.

Even at school I studied ethics instead of religion.

Art is always criticized and always an outsider gets the blame.

Mind is everything. Muscle - pieces of rubber. All that I am, I am because of my mind.

Do you have any ambitions outside racing? My main ambition at the moment, whether inside or outside racing, is to become Formula 1 World Champion.

Intelligence is the ability to avoid doing work, yet getting the work done.

If one is satisfied with things, one doesn't complain about the downsides that exist, either.

Transnational, gigantic industrial companies no longer operate within political systems, but rather above them.

A decision once taken brings peace to a man's mind and eases his soul.

During my life I have seen, known, and lost too much to be the prey of vain dread; and, as for the hope of immortality, I am as weary of that as I am of gods and kings. For my own sake only I write this; and herein I differ from all other writers, past and to come.

We are a model country where gender equality is concerned.

The goal of the EU is to form a region of freedom, security and justice.

Freedom in this connection cannot be just the freedom of the strong, but it must be combined with fraternity and equality.

The Finland of the 21st century can thrive only if women of learning - in common with their male counterparts - are guaranteed the opportunity to use their creative potential to the full.

It is people who are the objects of globalization and at the same time its subjects. What also follows logically from this is that globalization is not a law of nature, but rather a process set in train by people.

My name is Linus, and I am your God.

The Linux philosophy is 'Laugh in the face of danger'.

Oops. Wrong One. 'Do it yourself'. Yes, that's it.

See, you not only have to be a good coder to create a system like Linux, you have to be a sneaky bastard too.
