  1. We spend so much time together, because that’s how we like it. I never used to go on girl’s nights out, even at school. And Paul has never liked going out for a night with the boys, either.
  2. I would like them all to enjoy life and try different things until there is something they really like.
  3. I would travel only by horse, if I had the choice.
  4. He is a terrible planner, though. So am I.
  5. I had daydreams and fantasies when I was growing up. I always wanted to live in a log cabin at the foot of a mountain. I would ride my horse to town and pick up provisions. Then return to the cabin, with a big open fire, a record player and peace.
  6. When I married Paul, we lived in St John’s Wood in London. We had nice next-door neighbours, but you don’t know anyone else. Everyone lives in isolation.
  7. We think we want to do something and when it comes to it, we don’t. We don’t like to commit.
  8. If slaughterhouses had glass walls the whole world would be vegetarian.
  9. I spend a lot of time in our kitchen. I find it the cosiest, friendliest place in the house. It’s not something my American upbringing prepared me for, but now that I live in England, it’s become very important to me.
  10. I wasn’t looking for another marriage. I had been married before. He is a nice man — a geologist, an Ernest Hemingway type. But Paul and I married because of convention.
  11. But I wanted marriage for myself. I was not calculating about it. I wish I was more calculating.
  12. We spent last night listening to Liverpool football team on the radio, wanting them to win so badly. Paul supports Liverpool. He was Everton for a while because of his family — but it’s all Liverpool now.
  13. He is not in the least arrogant. The last album was written in a room in Sussex. He was like a mad professor, spending all day writing and then coming out with brilliant tunes.
  14. I don’t need a lot of money. Simplicity is the answer for me.
  15. My mother was killed in a plane crash, so I hate travelling in planes. Death is so unexpected. I would actually rather stay at home and not go anywhere.
  16. I think hard drugs are disgusting. But I must say, I think marijuana is pretty lightweight.
  17. We are really on top of one another at the moment and I think it is amazing how we stay so close. Maybe that’s the test. Why not totally put yourself together, rather than always wonder whether you actually like each other?
  18. When Paul was arrested in Japan for having hash in his luggage, I thought he’d be out that night. But it became really serious stuff when he was kept in a cell. I became more fearful as the days went by.
  19. Paul persuaded me to join the band. I would never have had the courage otherwise. It was fun at the beginning. We were playing just for fun, with Paul’s group.
