The honest truth is that every day was new, every day was a challenge, every day was starting from a fresh place, and as time went on, over the course of about two years, things became better and better. But I dont think that there was for me anything like, Ah, this is taking too long, because long didnt exist. So I see it as a blessing. I have to laugh. I mean theres no other way to look at it.
More quotes by Melody Gardot
If today I can practice a sport, and move around 90% of the time without a cane, its because of the love and support of my producers, record labels and above all my audience who have always believed in me. Otherwise I wouldnt have made much more progress than I did in the hospital.
It became a kind of a game, to remember the things that had happened five minutes ago. I would start making notes about the things I was doing, on an instrument that was foreign to me, the guitar, so it was just a fun way of doing cognitive therapy. I was none the wiser to it until I began to improve and my ability to speak began to come back.
For me an album cover is like a movie poster. I wanted an image that was pure femininity, which could please a sculptor. I went through a lot of suffering. But managing to stand up nude on stage carrying a guitar is a victory.
I learned to play guitar on my lying back while I was bed-ridden. I only thought to record the songs because sometimes I would I couldn’t remember what I had just done. Eventually I started singing, because I thought if I sang it that would help to remember even more. But I wasn’t trying to sing. And then one day-this is really weird -I just wrote a song. It came out at a rapid rate and I recorded it and I listened back to it and was like ‘Wow, it’s a tune’.

Truth is a good dog; but always beware of barking too close to the heels of an error, lest you get your brains kicked out.
History is strewn thick with evidence that a truth is not hard to kill, but a lie, well told, is immortal.
Let them look up in the sky then…! if they must be so blind, that cannot see the truth in broad daylight, but must have the whole world in darkness to see the conceit of the stars…
