Only the educated are free.
Problems are not stop signs, they are guidelines.
Be gentle to all and stern with yourself.
Quality is not an act, it is a habit.
Wherever you are - be all there.
Well done is better than well said.
Do not weep do not wax indignant. Understand.
I can, therefore I am.
Always desire to learn something useful.
Expect problems and eat them for breakfast.
If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there'd be peace.
I'm not claiming divinity. I've never claimed purity of soul. I've never claimed to have the answers to life. I only put out songs and answer questions as honestly as I can... But I still believe in peace, love and understanding.
All we are saying is give peace a chance.
You either get tired fighting for peace, or you die.
Guilt for being rich, and guilt thinking that perhaps love and peace isn't enough and you have to go and get shot or something.
If being an egomaniac means I believe in what I do and in my art or music, then in that respect you can call me that... I believe in what I do, and I'll say it.
Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we're being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I'm liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That's what's insane about it.
My role in society, or any artist's or poet's role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all.
The basic thing nobody asks is why do people take drugs of any sort? Why do we have these accessories to normal living to live? I mean, is there something wrong with society that's making us so pressurized, that we cannot live without guarding ourselves against it?
Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.
