Stevie Nicks Quotes

Stephanie Lynn Nicks

Stevie Nicks quotes: about ditching drugs, fighting fear, why she believes in magic, and more.

“My life is a testament to believing that if you want something you can make it happen.”

“You should never stop believing.”

“If you can find a passion at a young age, somewhere between 15 and 30, if you can find that passion, I can pretty much guarantee you that you can be 65 and still love that passion and still have a reason to dance out of bed and down the hall every morning.”

“If this is what you want to do, you have to be absolutely organized.  And devoted and determined and you can’t listen to anybody tell you what you can and cannot do.  Nobody knows what you can do except you.  You have to prove the world wrong, period.  If you’re really good – and I think most people could actually say they are really good at something – that’s the attitude you have to take.”

“Sometimes, you have to create your own path.”

Greatness is always within reach, there’s no such thing as a limit.”

“In everything you do, you need to give it your best shot.”

“Struggles aren’t forever.”

“I’ve learned as time passes, all the things that you’re afraid of will come and they will go, and you’ll be all right.”

“If you have stage fright, it never goes away.  But then I wonder: is the key to that magical performance because of the fear?”

“Even the best intentions turn around one day.  Nobody’s right all the time.”

“Your graciousness is what carries you.  It isn’t how old you are, how young you are, how beautiful you are, or how short your skirt is.  What it is, is what comes out of your heart.  If you are gracious, you have won the game.”

“You can’t just be a wimp and then a year and a half or two years later decide to not be a wimp anymore.  Because people will always treat you like a wimp once they have decided that’s what you are.  You have to be strong and tough and intelligent and smart and kind of plan out what you’re going to say and know who you are.  So that people will get that right away.  Because then they’re always going to be great to you.  And they’re always going to treat you with respect.”

“It was my 16th birthday – my mom and dad gave me my Goya classical guitar that day.  I sat down, wrote this song, and I just knew that that was the only thing I could ever really do – write songs and sing them to people.”

“There is a part of me that has to depend on fantasy, because if you can’t be somewhat of a fantasy person, then you can’t write.”

“I came here for a reason.  I didn’t come here to be a mother.  I didn’t come here to be a nun.  And I did not come here to be a cleaning lady.  I came here to be a poet.”

“I’m going to spend my life writing poems, turning them into music that will affect people and touch their hearts.  I’m going to write the songs that people can’t write for themselves.”

“But never have I been a blue calm sea.  I have always been a storm.”

“I was not going to be a stupid girl singer.  I was going to be way more than that.”

“I do not walk away in the face of adversity and never have.”

“I am pretty fearless.  You know why?  Because I don’t handle fear very well; I’m not a good terrified person.”

“Even in my really bad, drugged-out days, I didn’t go away.  I still toured, still did interviews.  I never gave up the fight.  That’s why I am who I am today, because I didn’t leave.  And I think I made the right choice.”

“I believe I was definitely sent down here to take people away for a little while, to make them happy.”

“I believe that there is a certain amount of mysticism that all women should have, that you should never tell all your secrets, that you should never tell everybody all about you.”

“I totally believe in magic.  Because my life, I think, has been very magical, and magical things have come true for me time after time after time.”

“There is always magic to be summoned at any point.  I love to live in a world of magic, but not a fake world of magic.  We all really basically have a lot of magic.  It’s only those of us who choose to accept it, that really understand it.  It’s there for everyone.  That’s the only thing that I feel I am able to give to people and that’s why I know that they respond to me because I try to give them only their own magic.  Not mine, but theirs.”

“Timeless is the creature who is wise.  And timeless is the prisoner in disguise.”

“Don’t be a lady.  Be a legend.”

“We had hundred dollar bills everywhere.  It was very funny, in a lot of ways, because we had been so poor that we were… we were so stunned, you know, and all of a sudden you could really have anything you wanted.  It was really something, I mean, it was really the dream come true overnight.”

“My inspiration comes from real life from everything, you know, and then I have my amazing memories and I have a mind like a little steel trap, so I can remember everything and so, sometimes I just reach in my bag of treasures and, you know, I pull something up that happened a long time ago.”

“So it’s what I wanted, my life is what I wanted, and the best thing is, is that I’m not gonna die a drug addict and I am going to die, someday, a very happy artist who did everything that she wanted.”

“My life’s been a dream come true but still, I always look to the future.  And I think my life is going to be way beyond anything I’ve done now.”

“And I knew then, as I know now, that I still have so much to do.”

“Time makes you bolder, children get older.  I’m getting older, too.”
