U2 Quotes:
"People say we take ourselves too seriously and I might have to plead guilty to that. But I don't take myself seriously, we don't take ourselves seriously - but we do take the music seriously."

"Yes, true, we made it hard for people to love, you couldn't put out a more mixed up record. I mean we really worked hard at that. We worked hard at messing it up for the masses and they still went out and bought it. It is an amazing feeling that the audience is kind of as hip as you are."

"We've no sponsor on this tour (Popmart), and it's not like we've taken some huge high and mighty position on this. I mean if we could get someone to give us a load of money, and not have to kiss ass, we probably would take it. But unfortunately we haven't been able to figure that out."

"Home... hard to know what it is if you've never had one
Home... I can't say where it is but I know I'm going home
That's where the hurt is"

"U2 concerts are categorically not fundraisers for any politicians. They are Rock concerts for U2 fans."
