Glen Hansard Quotes

Quotes by Glen Hansard - (13 quotes)

Glen Hansard - From the Creativity category:

I only ever really take out my guitar when I'm miserable, which isn't necessarily a very good time to do it. (Glen Hansard)

Glen Hansard - From the Distraction category:

The moment of drifting into thought has been so clipped by modern technology. Our lives are filled with distraction with smartphones and all the rest. People are so locked into not being present. (Glen Hansard)

Glen Hansard - From the Editing category:

I love the idea of leaving some of the original abstract thought in, because the problem is that when you pick up a pen you become a snob, your own worse critic. You edit yourself in a way that is non-creative. (Glen Hansard)

Glen Hansard - From the Gratitude category:

Sometimes you give birth to something or you're part of a team that gives birth to an idea, and it grows and has a whole life of its own, and you feel grateful. It's just so humbling. (Glen Hansard)

Glen Hansard - From the Imagination category:

Our imagination just needs space. It's all it needs, that moment where you just sort of stare into the distance where your brain gets to sort of somehow rise up. (Glen Hansard)

Glen Hansard - From the Muse category:

The muse holds no appointments. You can never call on it. I don't understand people who get up at 9 o'clock in the morning, put on the coffee and sit down to write. (Glen Hansard)

Glen Hansard - From the Music category:

A song is like a saddle: you ride it for a while, and if it's the right kind of song you can sing it for the rest of your life. (Glen Hansard)

Glen Hansard - From the Performance category:

As a busker, one thing that does not work is self-consciousness. A busker needs to be working. A busker needs to shed all ego and get down to work. Play your songs, play them well, earn your money, and don't get in people's way. (Glen Hansard)

Glen Hansard - From the Relaxation category:

I've realized, you know, having turned 40, that rest is just as important as work. In fact, it's equally as important. (Glen Hansard)

Glen Hansard - From the Sadness category:

Sadness is a very interesting idea, this idea of sadness being some kind of default setting that artists will go into. And then I started thinking about this idea of sadness and happiness, and the idea that sadness is very loud, and happiness is quiet. (Glen Hansard)

Glen Hansard - From the Spirituality category:

I choose to believe that there is good in people and that everything is a lesson. Our place on Earth is to go deeper, to somehow get wiser. To have spirit. (Glen Hansard)

Glen Hansard - From the Success category:

If you don't mark your successes, the day your ship comes in could be just another day at the office, and there's no poetry in that. (Glen Hansard)

Glen Hansard - From the Travel category:

Sometimes travelling really intensely for a long time is like having a continuous nervous breakdown. (Glen Hansard)
