"As a Christian, I feel very shut out from a lot of contemporary Christianity. My understanding in what it means to be a Christian is to, in our own subjective way, recognize Christ as being God, and recognize our shortcomings and our failings, and try and live according to the teachings of Christ as best we can. And what I find so strange is I look at the behavior of so many Christians, and I don't see any aspect of the teachings of Christ represented there. But [I remember] the quote about taking the log out of your own eye before you can see the speck in someone else's eye, so I don't want to get in the position of judging other Christians. I fully admit that a lot of my actions and a lot of things that are still in my life are inconsistent with my beliefs as a Christian. I'm very secular."

I learned in the last few years that it's really unhappy and really unsustainable to try and base your well being on something as arbitrary as record sale and critical acclaim and the interests of the public. All of those things are so fickle. So my approach now to music is I want to make records that I love, and I hope that other people love them, then that's OK.
- Moby (quoted on March 2005)

It just seem like musicians want to sell a few records and put out a perfume line, and I think it's so sad that there are so many musicians who don't want to change the world... Music has been so much more.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"We Are All Made of Stars"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
People they come together
People they come apart
Nothing can stop us now
Cause we are all made of stars
Why They're Nonsensical:
The first three lines make sense, but I have no idea what the last line means - but it is actually from 2001 (the obelisk at the end of the movie is stated to be full of stars) it's a reference to that and also that we are all made of carbon and that makes up most of the universe so in essence we are made of stars.
