American singer and songwriter Stevie Nicks (born Stephanie Lynn Nicks), is famed for her mystical chanteuse image. She enjoyed massive success as the vocalist of British blues band Fleetwood Mac, but also as a solo artist.
Ever since she was a little girl, Stevie was in love with music. After getting her first guitar, she spent her adolescence playing records and writing songs filled with poetic and symbolic lyrics.
While still performing with Fleetwood Mac, Nicks chose to also start a solo career, so in 1981 she released her first solo album “Bella Donna” that has reached multiplatinum status and became number one on the US Billboard charts. Nicks remarkable career brought her eight Grammy Awards and in 1998 she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Throughout the years, Stevie kept journals to record her memories, but only the fantastic ones. She hopes that her goddaughters and niece will read them one day and “smell the gardenia perfume on the pages”.
Here are 17 Stevie Nicks quotes and lyrics to help you stay positive and look on the bright side of life.

I’m really an old-fashioned girl, and I think I’m totally sexy.
Drownin’ in the sea of love where everyone would love to drown.
There is a part of me that has to depend on fantasy, because if you can’t be somewhat of a fantasy person, then you can’t write
Thunder only happens when it’s raining; players only love you when they’re playing.
Love is only one fine star away.
Being able to take care of myself is something that my mom really instilled in me.
I want to be age appropriate. I don’t want to be that girl you see walking away and she looks 25 and then she turns around and she looks 90.
Most women would not be happy being me. People say, ‘But you’re alone.’ But I don’t feel alone. I feel very un-alone.
Oh, mirror in the sky, what is love? Can the child within my heart rise above? Can I sail through the changing ocean tides? Can I handle the seasons of my life?
I hope you find a love. Your own designs of love.
