Like A Rolling Stone: Bob Dylan

Quotes

"Love is so simple, to quote a phrase"

[on George Harrison] "He was a giant, a great, great soul, with all of the humanity, all of the wit and humor, all the wisdom, the spirituality, the common sense of a man and compassion for people. He inspired love and had the strength of a hundred men. He was like the sun, the flowers and the moon and we will miss him enormously. The world is a profoundly emptier place without him."
