Björk’s 5 most popular quotes
- If you want to make something happen that hasn’t happened before , you’ve got to allow yourself to make a lot of mistakes.

- There are certain emotions in your body that not even your best friend can sympathize with, but you will find the right film or the right book, and it will understand you.
