21. I think people in general have neglected to learn about history.

22. Because you might get something out of the music that you might not get from thinking about it, and watching the words go by. Maynard Keenan

23. If the education of our kids comes from radio, television, newspapers - if that's where they get most of their knowledge from, and not from the schools, then the powers that be are definitely in charge, because they own all those outlets Maynard Keenan

24.    There`s a difference between being a poseur and being someone who`s so emotionally challenged they`re kind of just doing their best to show you what they`ve got

25.     I like to make videos because I like to see visuals to our music, but the last video was just what our record label thought what was MTV wanted to see, and I will never ever ever do that again. Our label [Maverick] is really cool, they don't really tell us to do anything, but this last video we made they finally asked a favor of us, and it was a really one sided version of what we are all about. It was all this artsy, gay shit, and Im not really into that. Im more into the harsh, brash parts of life that are just reality. Im about to make a video myself and direct it for a song called "Around the Fur" it'll be just crazy, and MTV Im sure wont play it because you cant show that kind of stuff on TV.
Chino Moreno (Deftones)

So that's the end of my favourite quotes, I know there will be people saying, why's he included them and why hasn't he included these, but as the title says 'My favourite' that is what I have done. However I did try to include a variety of personalities and I think there is something here for everyone. Hope you enjoyed, feel to add your own in the comments section.
