"I was scribbling all these dichotomies and dualisms. Human beings are all things. At any given moment, if you said, 'What are you feeling right now?' I'd probably be feeling 16 different things - it's rare that I feel one emotion at any given time. So I thought, I'm just going to chronicle in this moment right here while Glen's out of the room. When Glen came back in the room, I showed him the piece of paper and he started playing while I sang the lyrics. We wrote that song in about 15 minutes." - Alanis Morissette
"I just connected with her as a person, and, almost parenthetically, it was like 'Wow, you're 19?'

Although there was some question about what she wanted to do musically, she knew what she didn't want to do, which was anything that wasn't authentic and from her heart." - Glen Ballard (songwriter)
