Billy Corgan quotes :
I do not trust those who make the vaccines, or the apparatus behind it all to push it on us through fear.Billy Corgan
Most of my arguments with musicians through the years have had more to do with their attitude about music, or their attitude about their own lives, or their personal responsibility. Music has never really been the big centerpiece of the fight.Billy Corgan
I did 13-something years of talking to wrestlers and promoters about why they did certain things and why they booked matches a certain way and what they were thinking and whether they were satisfied with the draw. And I got a lot of insight in the business.Billy Corgan
One thing I've learned to appreciate as I've gotten a little older is direct forms of communication.Billy Corgan
You know Americans are obsessed with life and death and rebirth, that's the American Cycle. You know, awakening, tragic, horrible death and then Phoenix rising from the ashes. That's the American story, again and again.Billy Corgan
I was fantasising about my own death, I started thinking what my funeral would be like and what music would be played, I was at that level of insanity. Billy Corgan
In my particular instance, I came from a family that didn't have anything. Everything I earned in life I made. Myself. With songs that I wrote.Billy Corgan
If I have resistance to something, it means there's something wrong. The resistance to me is a sign of fear.Billy Corgan
A good artist is willing to die many times over. What's funny is, I've died so many times.Billy Corgan
The funny thing about me that most people never really understand is that, at heart, I'm really a jock.Billy Corgan
I've always been spiritual but I've never had a proper context, and it took me awhile to find the proper context. It's hard to realize you can have any kind of relationship with God you want... and so I now have a punk rock relationship with God.Billy Corgan
