A Quote by Bob Dylan

A question in your nerves is lit
Yet you know there is no answer fit to satisfy
Insure you not to quit
To keep it in your mind and not fergit
That it is not he or she or them or it
That you belong to.

Although the masters make the rules
For the wise men and the fools
I got nothing, Ma, to live up to.

A Quote by Bob Dylan on hope and change

You need something to open up a new door, to show you something you seen before but overlooked a hundred times or more. You need something to open yer eyes- you need something to make it known that it's you and no one else that owns that spot that yer standing, that space that yer sitting, that the world aint got you beat, that it aint got you licked- it can't get you crazy no matter how many times you might get kicked. You need something special to give you hope- but hope's just a word that maybe you said or maybe you heard on some windy corner 'round a wide angled curve- but that's what you need, man, and you need it bad- and yer trouble is you know it too good.

A Quote by Bob Dylan on on real vulnerability

You must be vulnerable to be sensitive to reality. And to be vulnerable is just another way of saying that one has nothing more to lose. I don't have anything but darkness to lose.

Most people don't do what they believe in; they just do what's most convenient, then they repent.

But you and I, we've been through that, and this is not our fate,
So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late.

A Quote by Bob Dylan on heroes, myths, legends, ideals, and commercialism

There used to be a time when the idea of heroes was important. People grew up sharing those myths and legends and ideals. Now they grow up sharing McDonalds and Disneyland. (New York, 1989)
