Suzanne Vega Quotes / Quotations

A lot of my writing is not terribly civilized.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


Besides dancing at school and the studios, I'd written all these songs and had begun to play them at auditions.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


But I never want to get to the point where I write a safe song or one that represents my sense of a subject in order to appear civilized.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


Don't make a threat and then not do it.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


Girls are crazy and mean. They don't fight fair.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega

Quotation of Suzanne Vega

Quotation of Suzanne Vega


I don't think gender is aesthetically defining for me.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


I fingerpick a lot because I can get more of a range of feeling from the guitar than I can when I bash away with a pick.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


I had some fears as a kid, but I was also relatively fearless. Maybe that's a result of living half the time in reality and the other half in fantasy.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


I loved the atmosphere of the dance studios - the wooden floors, the big mirrors, everyone dressed in pink or black tights, the musicians accompanying us - and the feeling of ritual the classes had.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


I still consider myself a feminist.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


I still feel conflicted because I don't always get to spend as much time with my daughter as I'd like, given my work.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


I think people are sexy when they have a sense of humor, when they are smart, when they have some sense of style, when they are kind, when they express their own opinions, when they are creative, when they have character.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


I think that if you have a strong narrative, if the idea of the song can be boiled down to the basics, it won't change that much.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


I was always inventing characters and making up stories.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


I was the oldest child, and both my parents worked, so I had a great deal of responsibility from a very young age.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


I wasn't afraid of going places or doing new things. I would do just about anything or go anywhere. I'd get a notion in my mind and just follow it.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


I wouldn't characterize my work, however, as directly political.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


If you have to fight a crowd of boys, it's best to go for the biggest one. That way you won't have to fight them all. The others will see that you mean business and you will win their respect.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


In the end, my pursuit of the elusive New York State driver's license became about much more than a divorced woman's learning to drive for the first time.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


It takes as much discipline to be a mother and a wife as it does to do anything else.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


It's striking how commercially viable that impulse for instant intimacy is right now, especially in songs and writing.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


My intellect has always been more responsible than my emotions for how I respond to the world.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


My mother wanted me to understand that as a woman I could do pretty much whatever I wanted to, that I didn't have to use sex or sexuality to define myself.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


Of course, sometimes when you write personally, you are also writing about society, obliquely reflecting topical issues, but not in a way that people would expect you to or in the way that someone trying to make a point would.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


So you eat, you sleep, and then this wonderful child comes out, but you don't feel like you have any control over that process, over her, over her character and who she is.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


Some girls are taught to be sexy.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


Sometimes I listen to songs by very smart writers who assume that the world is a civil place with certain formalities that people follow, but I don't see things that way. My own experience tells me that life is not like that.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


That said, I've never thought the fact that I'm a woman was important to my work.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


There are no rules in fights with girls. Just hurting.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


To me, a feminist belongs in the same category as a humanist or an advocate for human rights. I don't see why someone who's a feminist should be thought of differently.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


When I was pregnant, I felt filled with life, and I felt really happy. I ate well, and I slept well. I felt much more useful than I'd ever felt before.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


Writing in other voices is almost Japanese in the sense that there's a certain formality there which allows me to sidestep the embarrassment of directly expressing to complete strangers the most intimate details of my life.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


Writing is always personal in some way but not always in a direct way.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega


You have to defend your honor. And your family.
Quotation of Suzanne Vega
