Go broke for what you love. It's only money; only stuff.

Love is a hot shower where your skin never prunes.

I'd like to think the best of me was still hiding up in my sleeve.

I feel strikingly domestic. We're in our own world with two busses and trucks.

Sometimes I wish that I was the weather, you'd bring me up in conversation forever. And when it rained, I'd be the talk of the day.

If you get half a million, at a certain stage you probably will get 4 million people, if they are able to hear it. The touring thing is unbelievable. It really is amazing from what we did the last tour even to what we are doing now.

I'm getting to a point where everything is becoming streamlined in my life. I'm learning how to stand onstage for two hours and play in front of thousands of people as if I am completely in the moment every moment.

I'm singing what I want to sing based on the emotion of what that day feels like. That's what comes out of my mouth and guitar. That impacts people. They know anything can happen.

I think people right now, the age they are, being 21 and 22, really do want to find a group of bands they can take with them through life.

John Mayer

Hopefully people can see my music is tethered to my brain.

I hope that what it comes down to at the end of the day is that people believe that I believe what I'm singing. It comes down to being believable. You don't have to be likeable; generally, though, I think I am.

I like giving people something they don't want to miss the next time. It's a show with little twists and turns and curves. It has me being silly and stupid and compassionate and completely deep.

John Mayer

I can make the most tasteless reference at some point and then go into one of my most earnest songs of the repertoire.

John Mayer

I feel my shows are like a late-night talk show that we settle down and do every night.
