KEY TAKEAWAYS:

• Folk songs were the way I explored the universe, they were pictures and the pictures were worth more than anything I could say.

• Act the way you’d like to be and soon you’ll be the way you’d like to act.

• “I had seen some poems by Dylan Thomas. People had always called me either Robert or Bobby, but Bobby Dylan sounded too skittish to me. The first time I was asked my name in the Twin Cities, I instinctively and automatically without thinking simply said, “Bob Dylan.”

• Some people feel the rain. Others just get wet.

• The worth of things can’t be measured by what they cost but by what they cost you to get it, that if anything costs you your faith or your family, then the price is too high.

• Behind every beautiful thing, there’s some kind of pain.

• Creativity has much to do with experience, observation and imagination, and if any one of those key elements is missing, it doesn’t work.

• People seldom do what they believe in. They do what is convenient, then repent.

• “ I wondered, now, whether all of us had been inscribed and marked before birth, given a sticker, some secret sign. If that’s true, then none of us could change anything. We’re all running a wild race. We play the game the way it’s set up or we don’t play.”

• “In life anything can happen. Even if you don’t have all the things you want, be grateful for the things you don’t have that you don’t want.”
