"I suppose the Irishness in me is that I'm up for the kick. I get argumentative, and I quite enjoy it. It’s part of being fully alive to the possibilities of the day. What I loved about rock 'n' roll when I came into it was that feeling of possibility. Yes, we're going to drink shots of whiskey on the way home from the club. And yes, we're going to talk about politics. And yes, we're going to flirt with girls. That's called being alive. The idea that you have to own up to just one of those things seems a real limitation."
- Bono, 2022
