I have always had strong maternal instincts. Even when I was still a child I cut out pictures of prams from newspapers and imagined the feeling of pushing my own pram through fresh winter snow and seeing the wheels' tracks behind me in the snow.
There is a danger of changing too much in the search for perfection.
I just want to live in peace and quiet.
No one who has experienced facing a screaming, boiling, hysterical audience can avoid feeling shivers in the spine. It's a thin line between celebration and menace.
My path has not been determined. I shall have more experiences and pass many more milestones.
I can spot empty flattery and know exactly where I stand. In the end it's really only my own approval or disapproval that means anything.
I must be allowed to be as I am.
It's strange that the newspapers don't see a connection between their false revelations about my private life and my need for seclusion and security.
The press has always written that I am a recluse and a mysterious woman, but I am more down-to-earth than they think.
There was a time when the music fell silent. Both within me and around me.
When you love someone, and you've lost that one, then nothing really matters.
I am uninterested in appearing in newspapers and on television. Many people think I am striking a pose - that I want to create a sense of shyness. But it's just not something I want to do. I overdosed.
It has always felt like a failure that Bjorn and I couldn't keep our family together. You never get it back, but to this day I don't regret splitting up. The reason behind our separation is one of those things I definitely don't want to go into!
I have one pug and one Czechoslovakian dog called Prazsky krysarik.
I may have aimed too high sometimes, asked too much of myself and demanded too little from those around me.
I would like to sing the theme tune of a big film - something like 'Titanic.'
I'm a country bumpkin. I'm not a showgirl.
My life contains so many other things; I have my children, my grandchildren, my two dogs and a big place in the country. I have my own life.
When I was 25, Abba was formed. After Abba I made three solo albums. Maybe I have been productive enough.
I was so tired once 'Abba' was over and just wanted to be calm and with my children. I married, was in 'Abba,' had my children, divorced, all in ten years. I wonder how I managed it, but I was young.
