A Bono Quote

Earlier this week, Apple introduced two iPod models – the iPod Photo and the U2 Special Edition iPod. I watched the rebroadcast of the news conference and mini concert and transcribed a quote by U2’s lead singer Bono. It appears in a poster that comes with the U2 iPod and was read aloud by Steve Jobs:

the hardest thing to do is to stick together
mates, family, marriage, business, bands
It’s like resisting gravity … it’s like King Canute
sitting in his chair trying to talk back the tide
but you can, and we have, and we will, turn
the waves around … the alternative is too predictable
you rid the room of argument … you empty your
life of the people you need the most
