50 Best Bono Quotes

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.

    Very nice… in all those quotes emerges what Bono really is. And I hope that all his detractors will finally understand his irony and his humility :-)
    Viva Bono!

    I also like when he says “I like to paint. I don’t think it’s the fumes, but it might be”. Better than using actual drugs!
