    • Comments to reporter from Welt Am Sonntag (published 16 April 2007), as cited in "Bryan Ferry apologizes for Nazi remarks", Reuters (16 April 2007)
    • Ferry stated after the resulting publicity: "I apologize unreservedly for any offence caused by my comments on Nazi iconography, which were solely made from an art history perspective. I, like every right-minded individual, find the Nazi regime, and all it stood for, evil and abhorrent."

  • Words can be very powerful. I find them very difficult.
