  • OK, the rule is, you can [make love to] an elephant if you want to, but if you do you can't cover the circus.

  • One can't have it both ways and both ways is the only way I want it.

  • I want to go beyond the restrictions of language, religion and caste, and music is the only thing that allows me to do that.
