Taylor Swift Quotes

1. People haven't always been there for me but music always has.

2. When I was a little girl I used to read fairy tales. In fairy tales you meet Prince Charming and he's everything you ever wanted. In fairy tales the bad guy is very easy to spot. The bad guy is always wearing a black cape so you always know who he is. Then you grow up and you realize that Prince Charming is not as easy to find as you thought. You realize the bad guy is not wearing a black cape and he's not easy to spot; he's really funny, and he makes you laugh, and he has perfect hair.

3. To me, "Fearless" is not the absence of fear. It's not being completely unafraid. To me, "Fearless" is having fears. "Fearless" is having doubts. Lots of them. To me, "Fearless" is living in spite of those things that scare you to death.
