You know, the thing is, if you’re going to be around for 30, 40 years, you’re going to be at the mercy of a lot of things outside of your control. (…) But if there’s quality there and you don’t get desperate and you sort of plug away, things come around again. (…) You’ve got to be patient. The most important thing is you’ve got not to give up.

(Jim Kerr, Singer, Simple Minds)
