When Tom and I were young we had many liberties. We could stay up and go out later than kids in our age. But I never misused it. I never came back home drunk and threw up at my mother's feet. - 2005, from an interview for the first biography book about 'Tokio Hotel'
If I could do this for the rest of my life, if I could make my living with writing and composing songs - that would be ... the best thing ever.
The first thing I notice about a girl, is her hands. I like girls with nice hands. ... And she must be spontaneous as well.
On love and his ideal girl: I love it when a girl has a great look, nice nails and a beautiful skin. And then, especially, that they are positive and playful. I don't like one night stands. I truly believe in true love, a love that you only find once in a lifetime...if you have the chance. Because I think that many people never find it, which is very sad... I've already met girls, I've already fallen in love. I know what it's like to have a flash for someone and the butterflies on your belly, but I still haven't found love with a big L.
I won't let anyone stand between me and my brother.
I can't - we can't - live without each other. We are always together. We are like one person and like soul mates. We don't have to talk. (about his twin brother)
