We reveal something of our nature when we sing, something that can be disguised in our speaking voice.

— Lavinia Greenlaw

The most astounding Lavinia Greenlaw quotes to get the best of your day

If I had not kissed anyone, or danced with anyone, or had a reason to cry, the music made me feel as if I had gone through all that anyway.


The greatest act of love was to make a tape for someone.

It was the only way we could share music and it was also a way of advertising yourself. Selection, order, the lettering you used for the track list, how much technical detail you went into, whether or not you added artwork or offered only artwork and no track list at all, these choices were as codified as a Victorian bouquet.
