Tom Scholz QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
And as I see it, the Sierra Club is one of the very few organizations that can mobilize people and reverse public indifference.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
And sometimes I actually start to think human life is just as cheap to corporate America as animal life, so long as there are big profits to be made.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
As I said, I did a lot of research in the late '70s to find out where I could put some of my Boston money where it would really do some good. And after looking around a bit, it seemed to me that the Sierra Club was the principal watchdog group working to counteract polluters, clearcutters, etc.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
Back in the '50s, it was gospel that industrial growth was vital and all progress was good.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
Because of Boston's success, I had all this money, but I wasn't all that savvy with it yet, and I let people walk away with it.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
But so much of what passes for progress these days is destructive of things and wasteful of environmental resources.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
But the wealth that's been generated isn't shared. It goes into a few pockets, and the gap between the haves and the have-nots is growing by leaps and bounds.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
But we have such a close connection with animals. I feel a responsibility to help protect creatures that suffer at human hands.

Quotation of Tom Scholz
Factory meat raising is horrifying.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
I believe in my heart that most people actually want to do the right thing so far as the environment is concerned, but I don't think most people realize how wasteful and dangerous these machines are.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
I don't believe the best solution is always to build, build, build.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
I don't think most people are aware of the realities of factory farming.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
I had been exposed to classical music at an early age. Though I never studied it academically, when I was very young, I listened to classical music for hours and hours on end.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
I prefer to have some other input, because it can sometimes get a bit homogenous when the music comes completely from one person.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
I started looking into anti-violence and environmental issues, and programs that dealt with children and domestic violence.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
I started to see how things like factory farming and deforestation were closely related with the process of globalization.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
I still record the same way I always did.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
I think the Sierra Club is the environmental group that has the best chance of really accomplishing things. It's well known, and it actually gets down to doing the dirty work of protecting the environment.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
I was a fixer, a builder - an inventor - ever since I can remember.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
I was also interested in doing something to combat violence against animals.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
I was always a big fan of classical music-those people really knew how to make some powerful instrumental music.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
If people are lazy and they concentrate only on what they want to the exclusion of what's going on around them, we're in trouble.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
In my opinion, there's been a deterioration of values in American society - the profit motive is replacing ethical values, and the way things are structured, people aren't really given a choice.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
In the '80s I became aware that there were organizations doing things that I cared about.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
In those days, I didn't pay any attention to what other people were doing, so the sound of the record was the result of what just came naturally for me.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
Maybe we should think about slowing down a little.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
Most people live their life around what other people do.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
Music is an escape for me.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
PCBs and toxics are in the air and water all over the place and people aren't even aware.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
People have been convinced that growth for growth's sake is a good thing.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
People should be made aware that SUVs are more likely than standard automobiles to roll over, crash and kill them. And they're incredibly dangerous to drivers of other vehicles in a crash.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
Rates of cancer are higher than they've ever been.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
Starting with the Reagan administration, constraints that had kept these things in check were loosened, and the world was sold on the concept of an unrestricted free market.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
SUVs are one of my pet peeves. At some point, if something is a public hazard, it needs to be addressed - and this isn't even to mention the resources they use.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
That's because corporate America doesn't want people to know how veal calves are treated.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
The Bush administration doesn't seem to think toxic pollution is a problem. Instead of doing something to improve the situation, they're taking us backward.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
The majority of people, for instance, don't know what a veal crate is.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
The master goes to tape, and I mix in analog.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
The media aren't playing the role of watchdog anymore, and that's something that hasn't happened in 300 years in this country.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
The pace of growth and the pace of travel have been growing by leaps and bounds.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
The public has been sold a bill of goods about the free market being a panacea for mankind.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
The thing that made me decide to break with previous albums and include an overtly political song, was when I discovered that for the first time in American history big business owns the news media.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
Turning corporations loose and letting the profit motive run amok is not a prescription for a more livable world.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
Virtually every magazine, newspaper, TV station and cable channel is owned by a big corporation, and they've squashed stories that they don't want the public to know about.
Quotation of Tom Scholz
We need a free media, not just freedom of speech.
