Quotes by Amy Winehouse

“I don't think your ability to fight has anything to do with how big you are. It's to do with how much anger is in you.”

“I was hit by a car once on my bike, but I still rode home.”

“I know I'm talented, but I wasn't put here to sing. I was put here to be a wife and a mom and look after my family. I love what I do, but it's not where it begins and ends.”

“I'm happiest with my family around me.”

“All the songs I write are about human dynamics, whether it's with girlfriends, boyfriends, or family.”

“I love food.”

“I was gutted to leave my boyfriend at home when I started my tour, but taking my pillow was like taking a little bit of him with me.”

“I don't listen to a lot of new stuff. I just like the old stuff. It's all quite dramatic and atmospheric. You'd have an entire story in song. I never listen to, like, white music - I couldn't sing you a Zeppelin or Floyd song.”

“I listen to music that is of our time and I just get angry.”
