"I'm not trying to clock scores in this lifetime, it's just that things are better now than they were like five, ten years ago. Music has gotten a lot better. There's a lot of people who are committed to - soulfully."
"One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain."Jerry Garcia on Bob Marley
"If music be the food of love, play on."Jerry Garcia on William Shakespeare
"Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything."Jerry Garcia on Plato
"Without music, life would be a mistake."Jerry Garcia on Friedrich Nietzsche
"I was born with music inside me. Music was one of my parts. Like my ribs, my kidneys, my liver, my heart. Like my blood. It was a force already within me when I arrived on the scene. It was a necessity for me-like food or water."Jerry Garcia on Ray Charles
"I don't know why, it's the same reason why you like some music and you don't like others. There's something about it that you like. Ultimately I don't find it's in my best interests to try and analyze it, since it's fundamentally emotional."
"We're not uncomfortable with it, and we've already been through enough of the music business where I'm not really worried that commercial success is going to in some way - we're already past saving, you know what I mean? It's too late for us."
"I mean, whatever kills you kills you, and your death is authentic no matter how you die."
"Death comes at you no matter what you do in this life, and to equate drugs with death is a facile comparison."
"I mean, just because you're a musician doesn't mean all your ideas are about music. So every once in a while I get an idea about plumbing, I get an idea about city government, and they come the way they come."
