quote by Shel Silverstein

Just Me, Just Me Sweet Marie, she loves just me (She also loves Maurice McGhee). No she don't, she loves just me (She also loves Louise Dupree). No she don't, she loves just me (She also loves the willow tree). No she don't, she loves just me! (Poor, poor fool, why can't you see She can love others and still love thee.)

— Shel Silverstein

Impressive Maurice quotations

Songs don't just come out of the air.

They take time, but it's good fun, too. Maurice gave me encouragement.

I bet Maurice Gibb's heart monitor was singing the tune of Stayin' Alive.

He was the average guy. Maurice, I think, reflected every man.

It makes us feel better that everyone out there is thinking of Maurice.

Nobody will ever take Maurice's place, and he'll go on with us and he'll go on our music. He'll go on with us as the Bee Gees, and Maurice will always be with us.

In Maurice's name, we would respect that and not be the Bee Gees anymore.

Steve had a wicked sense of humor. I remember Russell coming to my rescue, once. I watched Eric evolve before everyone's eyes. Maurice loved what he did, so. He treated his character with respect, down to the costuming.

Lulu's mother used to ask, Which one is Maurice? For six months she thought Lulu was dating Barry.

The fact that Maurice Sendak said, "This is something that I made at your age, this was something that was personal to me, and now you need to take it and make something that's personal to you." I don't know, but we made the Where The Wild Things Are movie that we set out to make, and Maurice loves it. If Maurice was anxious about it, then I would be petrified.

I was lucky enough to know Maurice Sendak, and talked to him about doing the movie.
