Jim James, from a short interview on Austin City Limits:
“I do consider myself to be spiritual but I don’t subscribe to any particular faith or ideology. I think spirituality is the most important thing a person can tackle in life, and if you don’t understand that—well, not that we’ll ever understand it—but if you aren’t trying to deal with that, there’s a lot of life you’ll never be able to deal with. I think about that a lot and about my place in the world and trying to be a peaceful person.
I like to think of an image of the brain carving a new line every time you do something new. Every thing I do has carved a line in my brain influencing every decision I make.”
