Bono Turns 51

Bono
 
This week Bono turned 51. His words have served as the anchor to some of the best music in the last 20 years. As the mouth piece for U2, he has become the focal point lightning rod for topics that transcend rock and roll.
 
Bono’s dedication to using his rock star status has inspired millions to look beyond borders and give to those in need. Though he has become more than just a musical icon, Bono, at his core, is an artist. The boundless energy he commits to his music has placed him right next to the many other rock legends he so gratefully bows down to.
 
To celebrate his birthday, here are a few of my favorite Bono quotes. Cheers to 51!
 
“As a rock star, I have two instincts: I want to have fun, and I want to change the world. I have a chance to do both.”

“My heroes are the ones who survived doing it wrong, who made mistakes, but recovered from them.”

“To be one, to be united, is a great thing. But to respect the right to be different is maybe even greater.”

“Every Artist is a cannibal, every poet is a thief. All kill for inspiration and sing about their grief.”

“There’s no retirement for an artist. It’s your way of living so there’s no end to it.”
