Text Quotes
Some of us are born rebellious. Like Jean Genet or Arthur Rimbaud, I roam these mean streets like a villain, a vagabond, an outcast, scavenging for the scraps that may perchance plummet off humanity’s dirty plates, though often sometimes taking a cab to a restaurant is more convenient  (Patti Smith Quotes) The moment of creative impulse is what an artist gives you. You look at a Pollock, and it can’t give you the tools to do a painting like that yourself, but in doing the work, Pollock shares with you the moment of creative impulse that drove him to do that work  (Patti Smith Quotes) When I was young, I knew William Burroughs really well. And William’s secret desire, which he never quite did, was to write a straightforward detective novel  (Patti Smith Quotes) Vowels are the most illuminated letters in the alphabet. Vowels are the colors and souls of poetry and speech. (1976 Penthouse interview)  (Patti Smith Quotes) I’m certain, as we filled down the great staircase, that I appeared the same as ever, a moping twelve years-old, all arms and legs. But secretly I knew I had been transformed, moved by the revelation that human beings create art, that to be an artist was to see what others could not  (Patti Smith Quotes) We imagined ourselves as the Sons of Liberty with a mission to preserve, protect, and project the revolutionary spirit of rock and roll. We feared that the music which had given us sustenance was in danger of spiritual starvation. We feared it losing its sense of purpose, we feared it falling into fattened hands, we feared it floundering in a mire of spectacle, finance, and vapid technical complexity  (Patti Smith Quotes) It was like being at an Arabian hoedown with a band of psychedelic hillbillies (p. 171)  (Patti Smith Quotes) In my low periods, I wondered what was the point of creating art. For whom? Are we animating God? Are we talking to ourselves? And what was the ultimate goal? To have one’s work caged in art’s great zoos - the Modern, the Met, the Louvre?  (Patti Smith Quotes) There were days, rainy gray days, when the streets of Brooklyn were worthy of a photograph, every window the lens of a Leica, the view grainy and immoble. We gathered our colored pencils and sheets of paper and drew like wild, feral children into the night, until, exhausted, we fell into bed. We lay in each other’s arms, still awkward but happy, exchanging breathless kisses into sleep  (Patti Smith Quotes) New York has closed itself off to the young and the struggling. But there are other cities. Detroit. Poughkeepsie. New York City has been taken away from you. So my advice is: Find a new city  (Patti Smith Quotes) I love a lot of the New York bands, but Patti Smith stands out. I just read ‘Just Kids’ and it’s an inspirational, well-written account of an emerging New York artist in the late seventies  (Patti Smith Quotes) It will not fall away. Man cannot judge it. For art sings of God, and ultimately belongs to Him  (Patti Smith Quotes) Light inspires me. I’m drawn to architecture, often graves, statues, trees - things usually that are quite still. I’ve been taking pictures continuously since 1995 until the end of Polaroid film. I’m taking very few pictures nowadays because I have very little film left, most of it expired  (Patti Smith Quotes) Life is like a roller coaster. It’s never going to be perfect - it is going to have perfect moments, and then rough spots, but it’s all worth it  (Patti Smith Quotes) [Columbia House] magazines were how I found out about the punk world going on in New York. Because of what I read, at the age of 15, I hounded the local record store to order a copy of Horses [1975] for me by Patti Smith  (Patti Smith Quotes) Punk-rock records came out and you bought whatever you could find. But Devo didn’t happen for another three years. Sex Pistols didn’t tour the States until 78. At that time, for me, it was really about CBGB, Patti Smith, Talking Heads, the Ramones, and Television  (Patti Smith Quotes) I’ve embraced rock ‘n’ roll because it encompasses all the things I’m interested in: poetry, revolution, sexuality, political activism - all of these things can be found in rock ‘n’ roll. But I am also engaged in all of these things separately  (Patti Smith Quotes) There were a lot of people doing new and interesting things with rock. But I wanted to take it farther than that. My real influence was punk. I must have listened to the first Patti Smith album 300 times  (Patti Smith Quotes) Please, no matter how we advance technologically , please don’t abandon the book. There is nothing in our material world more beautiful than the book. (Acceptance speech, National Book Award 2010 (Nonfiction), November 17, 2010)  (Patti Smith Quotes) I felt alien my whole life, but I didn’t feel alien because of my gender. Other people made me aware of my gender.  (Patti Smith Quotes) I’d never had people drive me around, and then all of a sudden, if a car didn’t come, I’d say, Where’s my car?  (Patti Smith Quotes) My introduction to photography and a lot of how I developed aesthetically was through 50s and early- 60s fashion magazines like Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue.  (Patti Smith Quotes) People say the media is feeding the public’s hunger for celebrity news, but that’s the drug pusher’s mentality. I don’t think anybody would be pining for news about Angelina Jolie’s babies if it weren’t being given to them in the first place.  (Patti Smith Quotes) People wouldn’t know this about me, but I adore ball gowns. I love their cut, their architecture and the thought of the hands of so many seamstresses working on them.  (Patti Smith Quotes) My years with Aretha Franklin have been very special, as were the years making records with Dionne Warwick. Other highlights include working with Janis Joplin, who was the first artist I ever signed, as well as Patti Smith and Alicia Keys.  (Patti Smith Quotes) I didn’t write about aspects of my public life because that’s a small part of my life  (Patti Smith Quotes) I don’t think the average American understands what patriotism truthfully is. That’s why when I attack our country or attack the government, it’s sometimes looked at as unpatriotic. It’s not.  (Patti Smith Quotes) I gave you a wrist watch, baby, and you wouldn’t even give me the time of day  (Patti Smith Quotes) Good press, bad press, whatever, only means a lot to me if it’s writ by somebody I respect, by somebody I like.  (Patti Smith Quotes) She let me in during her tour, in London. Her band members - especially Lenny Kaye - were shocked at the fact that I was filming Patti [Smith].  (Patti Smith Quotes)
