Bob Geldof Quotations
- Ireland in 1975
was another universe - Planet Ireland. It was so claustrophobic. It
manifested itself within me as breathlessness, asthma quite literally.
- This clapping
thing and people dancing was the first approbation I'd had for anything,
anything at all.
- I might actually
agree with a lot of what they're saying but, being a Paddy, I find it
an almost national obligation to oppose.
- I once told a teacher
that when I grew up I wanted to be surrounded by beauty, but I don't
think I ever achieved that for myself. There's been horror and ugliness
all over my life.
- When the horror
was at its worst you want to go to a grey remote area of the world and
howl into the void, but you can't because you have other responsibilities
greater than your pain.
from Bob Geldof
