Text Quotes
Words are just rules and regulations to me  (Patti Smith Quotes) Should I pursue a path so twisted? Should I crawl defeated and gifted?  (Patti Smith Quotes) I never thought I was gonna live to 30  (Patti Smith Quotes) My mom loved rock ‘n roll. My father hated it. We couldn’t play it when he was around  (Patti Smith Quotes) What I wanted to do in rock ‘n roll was merge poetry with sonic scapes, and the two people who had contributed so much to that were Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison  (Patti Smith Quotes) When I was younger, I felt it was my duty to wake people up. I thought poetry was asleep. I thought rock ‘n’ roll was asleep  (Patti Smith Quotes) I’m not really a musician. I’m a performer and I love rock ‘n’ roll  (Patti Smith Quotes) I think it’s really great that people share their work [on Myspace] and no one is paying for it. I think that’s a very healthy thing and it’s not a corporate thing  (Patti Smith Quotes) I’m not afraid of terrorism at all. I’m afraid of loss of our freedom, loss of mobility, loss of global comradeship  (Patti Smith Quotes) I play the guitar. This year at the Sundance film festival, I joined the band from ‘The Guitar’ on stage. We warmed up for Patti Smith, and then the director Michel Gondry got on the drums to play some songs from the soundtrack to his film Be Kind Rewind with Mos Def. It was pretty mad  (Patti Smith Quotes) I love to sing old Motown songs to myself, or some Patti Smith Edith Piaf or Billie Holiday. That gets me in the mood for singing  (Patti Smith Quotes) I’m absolutely obsessed with The Jesus And Mary Chain and Patti Smith, but I’m a massive pop fan. I love pop culture, It’s a total reflection of the zeitgeist  (Patti Smith Quotes) The first time I met Patti Smith was in a laundromat. We knew some of the same people, including Richard Hell  (Patti Smith Quotes) You pick up loads of baggage with your first record with reaction to it from fans and critics. So I went to Ireland by myself for a couple of weeks with my guitar. I read lots of poetry, I read Patti Smith’s autobiography and started words and phrases and then songs started to take shape  (Patti Smith Quotes) What I say should always be prefaced with this: I’m not really politically articulate. I just try to be like Thomas Paine: what is common sense? So when I say these things to you, I am speaking from a humanist point of view. I just look around and see what’s wrong  (Patti Smith Quotes) I didn’t begin my life in 1975 with ‘Horses.’ I recorded ‘Horses’ in 1975, but was drawing in Paris in 1969  (Patti Smith Quotes) I had a handful of records, but when I was 11 years old, I liked Puccini as much as Little Richard. They both made sense to me  (Patti Smith Quotes) I was raised in rural south Jersey, and there was no culture there. There was a small library, and that was it. There was nothing else  (Patti Smith Quotes) I wrote every day. I don’t think I could have written ‘Just Kids’ had I not spent all of the 80s developing my craft as a writer  (Patti Smith Quotes) I don’t think public life in and of itself can destroy you. I think it’s the way people react to it, and some people are more sturdy than others... I don’t think any one faction can be blamed for a person’s self destruction - a certain amount of that has to be innate  (Patti Smith Quotes) I don’t think the Palestinian people or Afghan children or some other things I’m concerned about are at the top of other people’s agendas - not right now, when America is going through such a recession and people are suffering across the board financially. But I think all that will change  (Patti Smith Quotes) I have great respect for my parents. I got such beautiful things from both of them. It doesn’t mean that we didn’t have our rough times, but they were remarkable people who were open-minded, creative and hard-working, and had great senses of humor  (Patti Smith Quotes) I’ve said this over and over, but I’ll say it a million more times - I’m concerned more about the death of a bee than I am about terrorism. Because we’re losing hives and bees by the millions because of such strong pesticides  (Patti Smith Quotes) In 1974, when I started working with the material that became ‘Horses,’ a lot of our great voices had died. We’d lost Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison and Janis Joplin, and people like Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King and Malcolm X  (Patti Smith Quotes) It’s no secret - I love detective fiction. One of the reasons I love being in London is because I like to watch all the shows on TV. I watch them all  (Patti Smith Quotes) My father’s mother was from Liverpool and she had this very beautiful English china. I only wanted to drink my cocoa out of my grandmother’s cup and saucer  (Patti Smith Quotes) My parents had three kids right after the Second World War, and we were all sort of sickly. Then I had a fourth sibling, with very serious asthma. The medical bills... So my parents always struggled  (Patti Smith Quotes) My parents were very well read. They were both New Englanders, not highly educated, but they had a sophisticated... they were both very humanistic, and they were sophisticated readers  (Patti Smith Quotes) Nothing is a hobby - each discipline is its own world with its own high standards. Of course, every artist has ‘minor works’ that they do, but I don’t think I have any ‘minor disciplines.’  (Patti Smith Quotes) People came at me with all sorts of offers, wanting to make me into a hard-core Cher. I had no desire for any amount of money to be reformed for someone’s vision, because in the end, that’s what you got: your clay in someone else’s hands  (Patti Smith Quotes)
