“We have to set our own agenda, we have to set our own standards, we have to be very strong about what we want, we have to be very strong about our passion and if it’s not right for you, you shouldn’t do it just because you’re advised by so-called geniuses.”

“When I was writing songs or performing or producing or dabbling in movies or even putting my career on hold to go to art school, I was just following my muse. A woman who did that then was criticized for having no direction. Today they call it versatility.”
“Every day I’m doing things, it’s surprising to me, because this is about what following your passion does – it moves you, you don’t move it.”
Jackie DeShannon, born Sharon Lee Myers on August 21, 1944
Her hair is Harlow gold
Her lips a sweet surprise
Her hands are never cold
She’s got Bette Davis eyes
“Bette Davis Eyes” (1975)
