Paul Stanley Quotes

In order to be comfortable with other people, you have to be comfortable with yourself.

Your life and destiny are determined to a large extent by your participation in the outcome.

The ultimate rebellion wasn’t fighting the system, it was circumventing the system and living your life fully.

You can be with somebody and still feel alone.

When you reach a point where you can distinguish between the things you thought you wanted and the things you actually need, that is an epiphany.

One thing I had figured out by then was that talent, like everything else, was just a starting point. What counted was what you did with it. I knew I wasn’t the most talented guitar player or the best singer or the best writer, but I could do all of those things, and I had a complete vision of what it was going to take to succeed—a vision that included working, working, working.

I saw the Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show. As I watched them singing, it hit me: This is my ticket out. Here was the vehicle I could use to rise out of misery, to become famous, to be looked up to, to be liked, to be admired, to be envied.
