Patti Smith's Quotes

  • [on friendship] Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.
  • [on her tribute to Amy Winehouse with the song, "This is the Girl"] It was done really lovingly. As soon as I heard about when she died, I sat down and wrote her a little poem and my bass player wrote a piece of music that resonated the poem. It is a song I wish we never had to write.
  • [on Johnny Depp] I think, at heart, he is a musician. I've never really seen him without a guitar. He keeps two or three guitars with him most of the time. Sometimes, on a long drive, he'll have one in the car. That is how devoted to music he is.
  • Some of us are born rebellious. Like Jean Genet or Arthur Rimbaud, I roam these mean streets like a villain, a vagabond, an outcast, scavenging for the scraps that may perchance plummet off humanity's dirty plates, though often sometimes taking a cab to a restaurant is more convenient.
  • I wasn't writing my own songs yet, so I was using other people's songs as a vehicle. The reason we did "Land of a Thousand Dances" and "Gloria" on "Horses" was because I liked repetitious, three-chord rock songs but I didn't understand that I could write my own. I didn't realize that you could use those chords a million times.
