Quotable quotes

Just for Friday fun, here’s a quote I found that really resonated with me:

“Music is a repair shop. So I'm basically a repairman. And I'm trying to repair myself. If I do that well enough, I will help repair you while I'm doing it.” ... Bruce Springsteen

To paraphrase a TV commercial, what quote do you have in your wallet? ??

I'm sure he said it to others before, but he said it to me in December 2005.

A couple of my favourites:

Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life -- Berthold Auerbach

Q:How many Folk Singers does it take to change a light bulb?
Ane to change it and 5 to sing about how good the old one was.
