Bob Dylan quotes

Jun 14 2017

Some men who receive injuries are led to God, others are led to bitterness. The ship's crew is made up of men of different races.feedback

In folk and jazz, quotation is a rich and enriching tradition. These are the same people that tried to pin the name Judas on me. Judas, the most hated name in human history! If you think you've been called a bad name, try to work your way out from under that. Yeah, and for what? For playing an electric guitar? As if that is in some kind of way equitable to betraying our Lord and delivering him up to be crucified. All those evil [expletive] can rot in hell.feedback

Something about him seemed permanent and he filled me with conviction. Then out of the blue, the most uncanny thing happened, he looked at me right straight there in the eye and he transmitted something, something I didn't know what. It gave me the chills. And I hope some of you get the chance to listen to these lyrics the way they were intended to be heard: in concert or on record or however people are listening to songs these days. I return once again to Homer, who says, Sing in me, oh Muse, and through me tell the story.feedback

This is a book where you lose your childhood, your faith in a meaningful world, and your concern for individuals. You're stuck in a nightmare. If a song moves you, that's all that's important. I don't have to know what a song means. I've written all kinds of things into my songs. And I'm not going to worry about it–what it all means.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - Nobel Prize

Our songs are alive in the land of the living. But songs are unlike literature. They're meant to be sung, not read. If a song moves you, that's all that's important. I don't have to know what a song means. I've written all kinds of things into my songs. And I'm not going to worry about it – what it all means.feedback

Tin Pan Alley is gone. I put an end to it. People can record their own songs now.feedback

Mar 29 2017

But there's one thing I must say. As a performer I've played for 50,000 people and I've played for 50 people and I can tell you that it is harder to play for 50 people. 50,000 people have a singular persona, not so with 50. Each person has an individual, separate identity, a world unto themselves. They can perceive things more clearly. Your honesty and how it relates to the depth of your talent is tried. The fact that the Nobel committee is so small is not lost on me.feedback

She was something else, almost too much to take. Her voice was like that of a siren from off some Greek island. Just the sound of it could put you into a spell. She was an enchantress. You'd have to get yourself strapped to the mast like Odysseus and plug up your ears so you wouldn't hear her. She'd make you forget who you were.feedback

A jester? Sure, the jester writes songs like 'Masters of War, A Hard Rain's a-Gonna Fall, It's Alright, Ma' – some jester. I have to think he's talking about somebody else. Ask him.feedback

I liked Amy Winehouse's last record. She was the last real individualist around.feedback

Musical influences too – they get swallowed up, get absorbed into newer things or they fall by the wayside. I don't think you need to feel bummed out though, or that it's out of your clutches – you can still find what you're looking for if you follow the trail back. It could be right there where you left it – anything is possible. Trouble is, you can't bring it back with you; you have to stay right there with it. I think that is what nostalgia is all about.feedback

Mar 10 2017

I am finding these great songs to be a tremendous source of inspiration that has led me to one of my most satisfying periods in the studio. I've hit upon new ways to uncover and interpret these songs that are right in line with the best recordings of my own songs, and my band and I really seemed to hit our stride on every level with Triplicate.feedback
