does what he wants to do.

Bob Dylan

You can't be wise and in love at the same time.
Bob Dylan

hasn't allowed him to do or encouraged him to do.

around - the music and the ideas.

It's peculiar and unnerving in a way to see so many young people walking around with
cellphones and iPods in their ears and so wrapped up in media and video games. It robs them
of their self-identity. It's a shame to see them so tuned out to real life. Of course they are
free to do that, as if that's got anything to do with freedom. The cost of liberty is high, and
young people should understand that before they start spending their life with all those
gadgets.
Bob Dylan

Being noticed can be a burden. Jesus got himself crucified because he got himself noticed. So
I disappear a lot.
Bob Dylan

You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.
Bob Dylan

Morality has nothing in common with politics.
Bob Dylan

New York was a city where you could be frozen to death in the midst of a busy street and
nobody would notice.

Swallow your pride, you will not die, it's not poison.

A hero is someone who understands the responsibility that comes with his freedom.
Bob Dylan

Life is more or less a lie, but then again, that's exactly the way we want it to be.
Bob Dylan

I consider myself a poet first and a musician second. I live like a poet and I'll die like a poet.
Bob Dylan

If you try to be anyone but yourself, you will fail; if you are not true to your own heart, you
will fail. Then again, there's no success like failure.
Bob Dylan

People disagreeing everywhere you look makes you wanna stop and read a book.
Bob Dylan

Sometimes it's not enough to know what things mean, sometimes you have to know what
things don't mean.
Bob Dylan

I'm against nature. I don't dig nature at all. I think nature is very unnatural. I think the truly
natural things are dreams, which nature can't touch with decay.
Bob Dylan

The picture you have in your mind of what you're about will come true.
Bob Dylan

When I first heard Elvis Presley's voice I just knew that I wasn't going to work for anybody;
and nobody was going to be my boss. Hearing him for the first time was like busting out of
jail.

May you have a strong foundation when the winds of changes shift... and may you be forever
young.

A lot of people can't stand touring, but to me it's like breathing. I do it because I'm driven to
do it.

Behind every beautiful thing, there's some kind of pain.
Bob Dylan

The road out would be treacherous, and I didn't know where it would lead but I followed it
anyway. It was a strange world ahead that would unfold, a thunderhead of a world with
jagged lightning edges. Many got it wrong and never did get it right. I went straight into it. It
was wide open. One thing for sure, not only was it not run by God, but it wasn't run by the
devil either.
Bob Dylan
