“In Ethiopia during the famine, I saw stuff there that reorganized how I saw the world. I didn`t quite know what to do about it. At a certain point, I felt God is not looking for alms. God is looking for action.”

“We thought that we had the answers, it was the questions we had wrong.”

“Overcoming my dad telling me that I could never amount to anything is what has made me the megalomaniac that you see today” – recalling his late father`s influence

“Music can change the world because it can change people.”

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

“It would be wrong for me to say, `Yes, we can change the world with a song.` But every time I try writing, that`s where I`m at. I`m not stupid. I`m aware of the futility of rock & roll music, but I`m also aware of its power.”

“Great music is written by people who are either running toward or away from God.”

“Marriage is this grand madness, and I think if people knew that, they would perhaps take it more seriously. The reason why there`s operas and novels and pop tunes written about love is because it`s such an extraordinary thing, not because it`s commonplace.”

“The world is more malleable than you think. We can bend it into a better shape. Ask big questions, demand big answers.”

Paul David Hewson, (born 10 May 1960 in Dublin, Ireland), most commonly known by his stage name Bono, is an Irish singer and musician, best known for being the main vocalist of the Dublin-based rock band U2. Bono was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland, and attended Mount Temple Comprehensive School where he met his future wife, Ali Hewson, and the future members of U2. Bono writes almost all U2 lyrics, often using political, social, and religious themes.

Bono has been praised and criticized for his activism and involvement with U2. He has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, was granted an honorary knighthood by Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom, and was named as a Person of the Year by Time.

Trivia: Bono is almost never seen in public without sunglasses. During a Rolling Stone interview he stated:

“[I have] very sensitive eyes to light. If somebody takes my photograph, I will see the flash for the rest of the day. My right eye swells up. I’ve a blockage there, so that my eyes go red a lot. So it’s part vanity, it’s part privacy and part sensitivity.”
