A website paying tribute to the recently deceased singer Amy Winehouse has left a legacy of favorite quotes honoring the diva’s most profound rhetoric.
The website lists more than 30 of the singer’s most popular quotes, and promotes the words: “Always remembered, never forgotten.”
In one of the singer’s famous quotes she denies having faith in a higher power, but claims that she has belief in fate.
“I'm not religious at all. I think faith is something that gives you strength,” she said on her site. “I believe in fate and I believe that things happen for a reason, but I don't think that there's a high power, necessarily. I believe in karma very much though.”
Another one of her favorite quotes is: “Life is so much more rewarding if you strive for something, rather than take what's given to you on a plate.”
But there was one quote depicted by the singer, which portrayed her sadness over having a broken heart and acknowledged her love for her ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil.
“I'll always love Blake, but he just doesn't have access to my head anymore. He will always have my heart. Everyone that I love will always have a piece of my heart, but no one can make a mess in my head again. I believe that you only get to be in real love once.”
Other quotes speak of life, love and making mistakes: “Life happens. There is no point in being upset or down about things we can't control or change.”
Winehouse’s much-acclaimed “Back to Black” album is described as having a jazzy retro-soul sound and featured the hit single “Rehab,” which garnered her three out of her five Grammy awards in 2007. “Rehab” was named by Time magazine as the Best Song of 2007 and by Rolling Stone as the eighth-best song of the 2000s.
Winehouse is considered one of the most important musicians on the pop scene this millennium and she swept the 2007 Grammy Awards, taking home five out of the six Grammys she was nominated for.
Winehouse’s early death puts her in the company of “27 Club” members, made up of undeniably talented musicians whose drug and alcohol addictions led to their untimely death at age 27. “27 Club” members include Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain, The Rolling Stones’ Brian Jones, The Doors’ Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, and Janis Joplin.
