Your Favourite Bono Sayings

Bono's said a lot of cool stuff on stage over the years. What are your favourite lines? Mine are:



"Take a picture of this!"


"It's our hero!"


"The last time we were here, there weren't so many people, so if there was anyone here that was here last time, hello. . . "



"You've never heard this song, because we're just gonna make it up."

I love the whole "I have the vision! Television!" thing

And OF COURSE (if this counts) anything he says/"raps" during the intro to UTEOTW.

His rants, especially during Sunday Bloody Sunday and Bullet The Blue Sky.

Oh, and this:

"This is a story about a religious man who became a very dangerous man when he misunderstood the meaning and the message of the hands of love."
- The intro to Exit

Reminds me of certain religious leaders and politicians and presidents I know ...

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

I might be cheating, but I just wanted to post these...

"I dance much better horizontally than vertically..." kills me every time. Does it even require justification?!

another favourite is:

"work like you don't need the money, love like you've never been hurt and dance like no one is watching" - a philosophy for life if there ever was one

"I don't think people should ever look like their hair has been ironed. "


Bono comments on the mullet, 2002

On stage, my favorite quote would have to be: "The God I believe in isn't short of cash, mister."

But I'm also very fond of Macphisto's Sydney smirk. "Look what you've done to me."

For some reason Bono sometimes gets credited for that saying, but it wasn't him who invented it.

No, Bono is not the author of that statement. I never heard him saying it and I'm sure he didn't pretend to be its author.
The author is Satchel Paige.

Some of my favourites:

"I met this guy once in a mental hospital I was visiting. He introduced himself as Jesus Christ. I just said, 'Haven't we met before?' He said nothing. I asked him why, if he was the son of God, was he in a mental hospital? He said, 'Because it's my 40 days and 40 nights in the wilderness.' At that point I just cracked up. I asked him when the end of the world was going to come. He said April 1. I thought, 'Brilliant, pencil it into the diary. The world will end on April Fool's Day. Perfect'


"U2 is an original species... there are colours and feelings and
emotional terrain that we occupy that is ours and ours alone."



"As we were leaving stage, I said [to Bob Dylan], 'Those songs are gonna last forever, Bob.'
And he said, 'Your songs are gonna last forever, too - the only thing is, no one's gonna be able to play them.' They're hard to figure out, you know?" -U2: Road To Pop

I'm not in a position to be seen as a spokesman for a generation.
I mean, how can you be a spokesman of a generation
if you've nothing to say, other than 'Help!'"



"It's your future. The only limits are the limits of your imagination.
Dream up the kind of world you want to live in - dream out loud.
At high volume! That's what we do for a living. Lucky Bastards!" - Dublin New Year's Day 1990


This is one of the funniest:
"Welcome to Zoo TV y'all...the finest in hardware, software, & men's wear."

It's a traditional Irish saying.
