I'm 99.13% sure that the attributed quote:

"I have a secret code called 'Icelandic', so you will never know what's written here." Holding a notebook, during a television interview, possibly on US cable channel VH1

was actually from a program on Bravo. More details can I not unveil, as I have not the access to sources at hand. My apologies extended.

Wikiquote no longer allows unsourced quotations, and they are in process of being removed from our pages (see Wikiquote:Limits on quotations); but if you can provide a reliable, precise and verifiable source for any quote on this list please move it to Björk. --Antiquary 20:38, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

  • "Basically the story of Isobel is she was born in a forest by a spark and as she grew up she realized that the pebbles on the floor were actually skyscrapers and by the time she was a grownup woman and the skyscrapers had taken over the forest, she found herself in the city and she didn't like all the people there too much because they were a bit too clever for her, so she decided to send to the world all of these moths that she had trained, to go and fly all over the world and go inside windows of people's houses that were too clever, and they sit on their shoulder and remind them to stop being clever and to start to function by their instinct, and they do that by saying "na na na na na" to them and then they say "oh, sorry, I was being all clever there" and they start to function on instinct."
