She was born in spring, but I was born too late

I almost forgot…it is Bob Dylan’s 65th Birthday today. Happy birthday Bob, may you stay forever young. Here are some quotes that have been put together on this Canadian website. 65 quotes on Bob Dylan. I chose the best ones and have repeated them here, so enjoy.

“The music that was popular when I was growing up was How Much Is That Doggie in the Window? and that wasn’t our reality. We were expecting an atomic explosion, and everything to disappear in a black cloud.” - Dylan 1961.

Mr. Dylan’s voice is anything but pretty. He is consciously trying to recapture the rude beauty of a Southern field hand musing in melody on his back porch.” —Robert Shelton, New York Times, Sept 1961.

Reporter: “Does it take a lot of trouble to get your hair like that?” Dylan: “No, you just have to sleep on it for about 20 years." —Sydney Morning Herald, 1963.

“There are seven levels to the meaning of life.” —Paul McCartney, after getting stoned on marijuana with Dylan during the Beatles’ 1964 U.S. tour.

“I got so crazy I thought he was the new Messiah.” —
Allen Ginsberg, 1968.

“I hate to see female artists perform because they whore themselves. Especially the ones that don’t wear anything.” —Dylan, 1988.
