Action is the antidote to despair. - Joan Baez



Joan Baez is certaintly not part of my starlet quote series. Ms. Baez belongs more in 'Cool Chick' quotes.

Hypothetical questions get hypothetical answers. Joan Baez

It seems to me that those songs that have been any good, I have nothing much to do with the writing of them. The words have just crawled down my sleeve and come out on the page. Joan Baez

The easiest kind of relationship for me is with ten thousand people. The hardest is with one. Joan Baez

And from one of her songs that like alot of songwriters read like poetry...

Happiness is temporary
Believe me, I know
It can arrive as a shining crystal
And leave as the melting snow
Come all you lads and lasses
The Kingdom of Childhood passes

Action is the antidote to despair. A quote to remember!

Definately a cool chick. I like how happiness is temporary - we can't be happy all of the time - that would be boring and a relationship with thousands is easier than with one. No sugar coating there.
