We all dream a lot - some are lucky, some are not. But if you think it, want it, dream it, then it's real. You are what you feel.
September is my favourite month, particularly in Cornwall. I felt, even as a child, that if you get a wonderful day in September, you think: 'This could be one of the last, the summer is nearly over.' If you get a wonderful day in May, you think: 'So what, there's more coming.'
I do enjoy Singapore very much.
And all the good you've done will soon be swept away, You've begun to matter more than the things you say.
Maintaining our standard; that's our challenge day-in and day-out.
I think failure is the best thing for some people. It tells you whether you're in the right job or the wrong one.
I worked in a petrol station on the A1 one summer. I enjoyed it except when I was on latrine duty.
Although I've got lots of pals in showbiz, I haven't got that many close friends.
I love trains. I don't even mind First Great Western, which is a stupid name because it implies every carriage is first class, but they're not.
The biggest lesson I had in my life was failure.
I have always been obsessed with America, the geography, the history, and, of course, the music. I've been lucky enough to have travelled through the country a lot, and, in a kind of anorak way, I've noted which states I've visited and which ones I've been to most often and all that sort of detail.
It's a cliche, but most people are good at something, and most people are good at what they're enthusiastic about.
I must have written 15 lyrics for 'The Lion King,' and only five or six were used. Some were scenes that disappeared, some were earlier versions of songs that didn't work, or else the characters changed.
I always think 'Pity the Child' is a goodie. And I've always liked a song called 'Heaven Help My Heart,' which is quite a corny number.
One of the problems with musicals and opera is you can't ever hear all the words.
Very few artistic partnerships last more than 10 years, and if they do they tend to go down the tubes.
When I went to do law, I kind of drifted through that and thought, 'I can pass these exams.' And I didn't - I failed three times, and each time I did worse and failed by a bigger margin. And that taught me so much.
There was so much on 'Superstar' that we didn't intend. I mean, there were things that we did which were innovative, but some of them were forced on us because we couldn't get anybody to do the show. 'Evita' was much more sophisticated. That doesn't make it better, but it does make it different. We knew what we were doing.
In the world of musical theatre, if everyone says it's a good idea, you wonder why nobody has done it before.
In the Bible, there is absolutely no motivation for Judas, other than that he is sort of a 100 percent figure of evil. And it seemed to me that that was probably not the case.
