"I don't want to be qualified as a 'guitar player.' I'd rather people just call me a 'musician.' Guitar is just the tool I use to render what's
inside of me." - Erik Mongrain, Airtap Guitarist.
"Give up. Just quit. Because in this life, you can't win. Yeah, you can try, but in the end you're just gonna lose, big time. Because the world is run by The Man. Oh, you don't know The Man? He's everywhere. In the White House, down the hall, Ms. Mullens, she's The Man. And The Man ruined the ozone, he's burning down The Amazon, and he kidnapped Shamoo and put her in a chlorine tank. There used to be a way to 'stick it to The Man,' it was called rock n' roll. But guess what? Oh no, The Man ruined that too with a little thing called MTV. So don't waste your time trying to make anything cool, or pure, or awesome, because The Man's just gonna call you a fat washed up loser, and crush your soul. So do yourselves a favor, and just give up." - Jack Black in The School of Rock.
"I'm not the type of guy who wants to be the best, or the fastest, or the most accurate. I'm trying to maintain a degree of precision, but at the same time, I'd rather trade some of that for emotion, for feeling it." - Erik Mongrain.
"I don't know if I have an aura, man, I just try to win." - Tiger Woods.

"When I hear people asking how do we fix the education system, I tell them we need to do the opposite of what is happening, cutting budgets by cutting music programs... Nothing could be stupider than removing the abilityfor the left and right brains to function. Ask a CEO what they are looking for in an employee and they say they need people who understand teamwork, people who are disciplined, people who understand the big picture. Do you know what they need? They need musicians." - Mike Huckabee
"I've not yet begun to defile myself." - Doc Holiday in Tombstone
"This is funny." - Doc Holiday
"Does this mean we're not friends anymore? Because if I thought you weren't my friend.... I just don't think I could bear it." - Doc Holiday
"It appears we must redefine the nature of our association." - Doc Holiday
