I really think that all relationships that are beautiful and lasting are a struggle. I think when things are too easy, it’s harder to appreciate the beauty, and it’s the same thing with the guitar. I mean, they’re also this inanimate object that I take on stage. It’s just a tool in one sense, but I’m trying to make friends with it, and I struggle with it. I really need to sort of identify with it as a sort of personality at the same time.

I don’t like the word collaboration. It makes me think of some silly compilation tribute album for sale at a bookstore.

As a songwriter, it’s really dangerous to use the word love in a song. It’s a word that has been used in songs so many millions of times before, and it’s the most popular topic to ever write about.

Jack White

I think that sometimes love gets in the way of itself – you know, love interrupts itself… We want things so much that we sabotage them.

Jack White

I won’t let love disrupt, corrupt or interrupt me.

I’ve had a great day today. I flew for thirteen hours and I somehow didn’t watch t.v. the whole time. I didn’t notice until I was off the plane. I wonder what I was thinking about. I’m one of those people that you have to keep your eye on or I’ll wander off into the woods and forget to come back.

Technology is a big destroyer of emotion and truth. Auto-tuning doesn’t do anything for creativity. Yeah, it makes it easier and you can get home sooner; but it doesn’t make you a more creative person. That’s the disease we have to fight in any creative field: ease of use.

Jack White

Music is what I have to do, I only answer the questions so that I can do it.

Jack White

Well, I sort of don’t trust anybody who doesn’t like Led Zeppelin.

Who said you needed to buy a guitar?
