"The strangest thing has happened. I really missed my dog. That's never happened to me before. You know, on a long tour you do hear people saying they miss their pets. I never have. But last night I started really missing my dog.
It's very odd, cause I don't have a dog."
-Bono

"We don't write music for food; we write music for sex.
Dinner parties just aren't our thing."
-Bono

"If we're in the studio trying to build the rocket," says Bono, "Edge is under the hood with his slide rule, I'm trying to become fuel, Larry is pointing out the reasons it'll never fly, and Adam's asking, 'Do we really want to go there?' They're always reasonable and usually correct — and I hate them for it."
-Bono

"We do make, and will continue to make, soul music. Not soul music with black singers - soul music is not about the instruments you play. Soul music is when you reveal, rather than conceal." -- Bono, 1983


"I got a job as a petrol pump attendant so that I could write when the cars weren't coming in. But then we had the oil crisis, and we had those queues for miles, and the cars just kept coming, so I quit." -- Bono

- "Any way two people want to love each other is fine by me."

If only our President could believe the same thing, I might not feel so cynical about what will happen to this country in the next four years.


-"Well the God I believe in isn't short of cash, mister."

Best. Quote. Ever.

What a city, what a night, what a crowd, what a bomb, what a mistake, what a wanker you have for a President.
Bono Acceptance speech at MTV Europe Music Awards 1996, referring to French nuclear testing in Pacific

I look like I am hungover. It's like a head full of ideas, an exploding head.

“See the thing that groups won't admit is that when people are screaming and calling their names... they're not really screaming for them, they're screaming for themselves. The thing about music is your lives get all mixed up in the music, this is true for me. So when I hear somebody playing a tune... I'm not screaming for him, I'm screaming for what that song means to me. Rock n' roll shouldn't be boring, shouldn't be retro, shouldn't be nostalgia, we've got to kick it into the next century a little bit.”

-- Bono, U2

“Without a real commitment to do something about the dire circumstances of a third of the population of the world, all New Year's Eve 1999 will amount to is... a fancy dress ball.”

-- Bono, Q Magazine 1998 Year In Review

“What can I tell ya... you get big ideas late at night.”

-- Bono, U2
