"That was a time when I did love music, I couldn't get enough of what was going on. Maybe it was Nirvana that brought me back. I guess it was a comfort because something that sounded so right - and non-commercial - had become so influential, so immediately."
"One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain."Marc Jacobs on Bob Marley
"If music be the food of love, play on."Marc Jacobs on William Shakespeare
"Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything."Marc Jacobs on Plato
"Without music, life would be a mistake."Marc Jacobs on Friedrich Nietzsche
"I was born with music inside me. Music was one of my parts. Like my ribs, my kidneys, my liver, my heart. Like my blood. It was a force already within me when I arrived on the scene. It was a necessity for me-like food or water."Marc Jacobs on Ray Charles
"I always find beauty in things that are odd and imperfect - they are much more interesting."
"In terms of having a business, I wanted to let it go beyond what my personal taste is. Basically, I'm in a kilt and a white shirt every day. So, you know, I don't have a lot of scope, and I'm really picky about what I wear."
"I remember walking the dog one day, I saw a car full of teenage girls, and one of them rolled down the window and yelled, 'Marc Jacobs!' in a French accent."
"It just seemed too weird to me. I don't know, maybe they were smoking a joint in the car downstairs from their parents' apartment. I had to go that far to put together a scenario of how they could have possibly recognized me."
"It's quite nice to see that I didn't have to change who I was to reach two very different types of people."
