16 quotes from Freddie Mercury

I do not want to become any star there, I will become a legend!
Money won’t buy you happiness, but it damn fast will bring you it!
I hate talking about myself. When I communicate with people, I prefer to talk either about themselves or about other interesting things.
Exceptionally right people bore me to death. I like to surround myself with strange and interesting people, because they give me a feeling of fullness of life. Yes, I like cranks.
I only care about rattling my skeleton around the stage.
I do not want to change the world, for me the main thing is happiness. If I am happy, this is reflected in my work. No apologies will help … then. I have a feeling that I was myself and that is the main thing – to have happiness and joy in life. Everyone should strive for this as much as possible, as much as possible.
People continue to fall in love and leave – this process is endless, and I continue to write songs about it.
The most difficult thing for me is to come up with a costume for the next concert: I already wore everything.
You can have everything, but you can still be lonely. And this is the saddest kind of loneliness.
I have no real friends. It seems to me that when I let people close to me, they destroy me.
When you climbed to the top, the only way is down, and this is the hardest part.
Love is the most difficult thing to achieve, and it can cruelly disappoint like nothing else.
I live for tomorrow. To hell with today.
If I am destined to die tomorrow, I will not regret. I really did everything I could.
Will my music stand the test of time? I don’t care about that! Then I will not be here to worry about this. In twenty years … I will be dead, my dears. Are you crazy?
I do not want to go to heaven after my death – hell is much better. Just think about those interesting people that you can meet there, and you also want to get there.
