#Quote
1I'm not ashamed of my spiritual beliefs, but I in no way incorporate them into this band.
2If people are making fun of you, then you're probably doing something right.
3I am Evanescence. I am the only original member. I have basically hired the band. Evanescence has become me. It is mine and it's exactly how I want it to be.
4My darlings, if I can't write dark, epic music, i can't live!
5"We're definitely a rock band, but the twist is that the band's music is epic, dramatic, dark rock." - on Evanescence.
6"The fact that he left the band, it wasn't like it killed me and hurt my feelings and made me feel like I lost a friend, it was actually more of a relief because he'd been so unhappy on tour recently that it was making everyone else unhappy. We all hope he's happier now." - commenting on Ben Moody's decision to leave the band.
7I'm glad that people are accepting our music and are connected to our art. Whether we're popular or not, I don't care.
