"When it comes to luck, you make your own."
"You can't be afraid of getting old. Old is good, if you're gathering in life."
"The past is never the past. It is always present. And you better reckon with it in your life and in your daily experience, or it will get you. It will get you really bad."
"For an adult, the world is constantly trying to clamp down on itself. Routine, responsibility, decay of institutions, corruption: this is all the world closing in."
"Talk about a dream, try to make it real." 
"Getting an audience is hard. Sustaining an audience is hard. It demands a consistency of thought, of purpose, and of action over a long period of time."
"Your success story is a bigger story than whatever you're trying to say on stage. Success makes life easier. It doesn't make living easier."
"We all have stories we're living and telling ourselves."
"There is a real patriotism underneath the best of my music but it is a critical, questioning and often angry patriotism."
"If you're good, you're always looking over your shoulder."
"It's always felt natural, because I'm generally very comfortable with people."
"I always wanted my music to influence the life you were living emotionally - with your family, your lover, your wife, and, at a certain point, with your children."
