Samuel Frederick Smith

Sam Smith quotes: the singer’s most melodic maxims.

“Anything’s possible.  If I turn around tomorrow and say I want to be a spaceman, I could do that.  You can do whatever you want to do.”

“The greatest power of the mass media is the power to ignore.  The worst thing about this power is that you may not even know you’re using it.”

“There were a lot of people who were willing to write a letter for me.  Not because I was academically inclined, but because I worked hard.”

“I’m a very ambitious person.  I’ve been like this from a very young age.  As early as 12 years old, I used to have panic attacks because I needed to know my life plan.”

“There’s always been a hunger in me not necessarily to be successful, but to be an icon.”

“I should be the face of Samuel Smith Beer.  That’d be great.”

“As a youngster when I started writing and stuff, I did actually write more from other people’s perspectives.  When I hit 18 and something happened to me that hurt me, I discovered that writing the truth is really therapeutic and amazing.  Every single one of my songs is about something very personal to me and I could tell anyone what it’s about, each song.  Like a diary, basically.”

“My mom and dad used to make me stand up at dinner parties and sing to their friends.”

“I think a lot of people don’t wear their hearts on their sleeves.  I think people should, but a lot of people don’t.  People may be a bit taken back sometimes about how honest I am and how open I am.  But I’m happier this way – it’s a good thing for me.”

“Everyone has sadness – I just get mine out in my music so that I can laugh and joke.”

“‘Stay With Me,’ for me, is my own personal anthem to the ‘walk of shame’ that we’ve all gone through.  It’s the feeling after a one-night stand of not wanting that person to leave, even if you don’t love them and don’t even like them.  It’s about having that body next to you.”

“Thank you so much for breaking my heart because you got me four Grammys.”

“I feel like regardless of whether or not I win this award or I win that award or I don’t win this award – I’m still Sam at the end of the day.  And that’s what defines me.”

“It’s my job to have ups and downs because it makes good music.”

“I’m a gay man who came out when I was 10 years old, and there’s nothing in my life that I’m prouder of.  After a lifetime of being at war with my gender I’ve decided to embrace myself for who I am, inside and out.”

“I didn’t become successful until I became myself.”

“I’m so lucky to not only have an incredible family and team, but I also have access to talk to and seek help from the leaders and trailblazers of our community.  Certain people have put me under their wings and supported every breath of mine for the last few years.”

“If to be old is not to be wise, then it is simply to be obsolete.”

“Love as hard as you can, at all times.”
