"In a live situation, there's
really no such thing as perfection...
You can't deal in perfection.
You can only deal in emotion."
-Adam

"Our music never had a roof on it. It's music that likes to float.
I think that's one of the reasons why we enjoy
these big open spaces, because it can't contain the music."
-Bono

"For me, that term "pop" is like a candy bar.
You buy it because you like it, you eat it, and then you throw it away.
It has no long-term meaning or value." Edge

Fan named Matt: (As a fellow fan prepares to take a picture of him with Larry)
"You know Larry, I'm a drummer in a band too."
Larry: (Looks at fan and shrugs, smiling pleasantly toward the camera)
"Well, Matt, we all have our problems." (After a PopMart gig)

"The Edge is a really, really intense guy, he's got this incredibly high IQ. He's great at sorting out issues of worldly importance, it's just that he forgets the everyday things, like the chords or songs, where he is and so on."

"We make music you can have sex to." <--- Hell yeah, lol :)

"It's a tough life being a pop star. You know, at the end of the day when you've paid all the bills and put the kids through college and that, you know, there's only enough left for a small island off the South Pacific." Larry pleads poverty

"Adam pretended he could play and used words like 'gig' and talked about things like 'action' on the bass and we thought 'this is a guy who can play!' He was a liar. He actually couldn't play a note. Dave was just playing away on the acoustic and people just kept on coming up and saying 'there's something wrong' and we couldn't figure out what it was until suddenly we thought - It's Adam! Adam can't play. He had his own distinctive style from the start - at first it was called BLUFF, but then it began to work." Bono describing Adam's early musical ability

"I don't think I could live with the pay cut or moving to a smaller house." Bono in 1990 about being a politician

"We would have broken up years ago if there'd been any pansies in the band." Edge, 2002

"Sometimes, size matters." - Bono

"I met this guy once in a mental hospital I was visiting. He introduced himself as Jesus Christ. I just said, 'Haven't we met before?' He said nothing. I asked him why, if he was the son of God, was he in a mental hospital? He said, 'Because it's my 40 days and 40 nights in the wilderness.' At that point I just cracked up. I asked him when the end of the world was going to come. He said April 1. I thought, 'Brilliant, pencil it into the diary. The world will end on April Fool's Day. Perfect!" - Bono

From an interview w/ B.P. Fallon:
BP: Did you ever think you were going to die?
LARRY: Yes, only on the back of Bono's motorbike!
EDGE: Only on the back of Bono's motorbike.
ADAM: Only in the back of Bono's car.
BONO: Die, no. Squashed, yes.

Excuse me but why have you taken your clothes off, Bono?
"For the same reason," interjected the Edge,
answering on Bono's behalf, "that he's the lead singer. Because he's a
rampant sex god with a huge ego."
"And a small willy," added Adam.
- Sean O'Hagan, Details, Sep. 1992

"I simulate love-making by beating a piece of wood with a metal wire on which it vibrates" - Adam Clayton, on what he does for a living.

"There are four members of U2. If there is a fifth, non-musical member it is Paul McGuiness. Either that or Adam's willie!" - Bono

"There was a brief moment when it (Achtung Baby) might have been called Adam (laughs). Depending on the photography (laughs again) there might have been a much larger 5th member on the album sleeve" - Adam on Cameos, Videos & All The Interference

"You see Larry, you let an outsider taste your food for you.
I'm not jealous, but if you need someone to eat off your plate you should always go to your bassplayer." - Adam

Making love involves two people, having sex only involves one." - Adam, during a TV special for the Love Town Tour, 1989

'Sometimes I wish I was as gifted as Edge on his guitar or Bono on his lyrics or Adam is on other things.' -Larry

Ok, so this is not really a quote as such, but more of a speech. I'm not Irish, so it doesn't affect me as much as it might affect others, but it's one of Bono's most powerful speeches IMO.

"And let me tell you something. I've had enough of Irish Americans who haven't been back to their country in twenty or thirty years, come up to me and talk about the resistance, the revolution back home. And the glory of the revolution, and the glory of dying for the revolution. Fuck the revolution! They don't talk about the glory of killing for the revolution. What's the glory in taking a man from his bed and gunning him down in front of his wife and his children? Where's the glory in that? Where's the glory in bombing a Remembrance Day parade of old-age pensioners, their medals taken out and polished up for the day? Where's the glory in that? To leave them dying, or crippled for life, or dead, under the rubble of the revolution that the majority of the people in my country don't want." - Bono, Sunday Bloody Sunday.
