Zitate Carole King

„When my soul was in the lost and found,
You came along to claim it.
I didn't know just what was wrong with me
Till your kiss helped me name it.
Now I'm no longer doubtful of what I'm living for,
Cause if I make you happy I don't need to do more.“

—  Carole King, buch A Natural Woman

„I want to be your lover
But your friend is all I've stayed.
I'm only halfway to paradise,
So near, yet so far away.“

As quoted in "Will you still love me tomorrow?" by Rachel Louis Snyder in Salon (19 June 1999) http://www.salon.com/people/feature/1999/06/19/king/index.html
Kontext: I'm a songwriter first, have always been, and probably always will be. Making the demo is a natural product of writing a song; after that, I'm happy to hear other people do it in other ways.

„The song is the center; the song is the key. If you don't have a good song you don't have anything by my value.“

—  Carole King

As quoted in "The King is Still Alive" in The Birmingham Post [England] (6 November 2001)

And nothing, nothing is going right.
Close your eyes and think of me

To brighten up even your darkest nights.“
