One of my Favourite Quotations

Townes Van Zandt

Townes Van Zandt:

Being born is going blind,
Bowing down a thousand times,
The echoes strong,
Of pure temptation.

Sorrow and Solitude,
These are the precious things,
The only words
Worth remembering.

Townes Van Zandt (John Townes Van Zandt, born at Fort Worth, Texas, March 7, 1944 and died at Smyrna, Tennessee, January 1, 1997) was a country and folk singer and poet. While alive, Van Zandt was labelled as a cult musician. Though he had a small and devoted fanbase, he never had a successful album or single, and even had difficulty keeping his recordings in print. Many of his songs, including "If I Needed You," "To Live Is To Fly," and "No Place to Fall" are considered standards of their genre. Read more on Last.fm
