"I do feel that I don't want to be on stage sometimes, and that's why I used to end up off it most of the time. A director once said to me the thing that marks some performers and actors from others is you can sense that they could get down off that screen and be on your lap, in your face and in your car. Or have you by the hair, and I felt that was the thing about me."
- Bono, 1997
