"Going to Nashville to meet the in-laws was the first time when I'd been in America and not been seen as some sort of eccentric character with a cute accent"

About this Quote
This quote by Nick Lowe speaks to the experience of being an outsider in a foreign country. He is referring to his very first time in America, when he was visiting Nashville to fulfill his in-laws. He was expecting to be seen as an eccentric character with a cute accent, as he was used to being treated differently in his house country. However, he was amazed to discover that he was not dealt with any in a different way in America. This quote speaks with the idea that, no matter where you come from, everybody is equal and need to be treated with respect. It likewise speaks with the idea that, although we might come from various backgrounds, we can still find common ground and get in touch with one another. Lowe's quote is a reminder that we must not evaluate people based upon their citizenship or accent, but rather on their character and actions.

"I'm not the same person I was. I used to act dumb. It was an act. I am 26 years old, and that act is no longer cute. It is not who I am, nor do I want to be that person for the young girls who looked up to me. I know now that I can make a difference, that I have the power to do that"
"I connected very much with all the work of Joan Crawford because she started as a flapper. She used to dance and sing and she was very cute. She had something that was so different from what she is at the end of her life and she started in the silent movies and then went into the talkies"
