Bono’s 50th birthday has gotten a lot of press coverage today, and not just a quick mention amidst a list of other famous birthdays. Michael Norman, a writer for the Cleveland Plain Dealer, compiled a great list of the 50 best Bono quotes. These are my favorites:
I want to play the guitar very badly, and I DO play the guitar very badly.
You have permission to call me anything you want – except sir, all right? Lord of lords, your demigodness, that’ll do.
Everyone argues, then we do what I say.
Don’t get me too excited because I use four letter words when I get excited.
