"Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it."Bob Dylan on Confucius
"To love beauty is to see light."Bob Dylan on Victor Hugo
"Beauty is only skin deep. If you go after someone just because she's beautiful but don't have anything to talk about, it's going to get boring fast. You want to look beyond the surface and see if you can have fun or if you have anything in common with this person."Bob Dylan on Amanda Peet
"A woman whose smile is open and whose expression is glad has a kind of beauty no matter what she wears."Bob Dylan on Anne Roiphe
"People are like stained - glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within."Bob Dylan on Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
"I paint mostly from real life. It has to start with that. Real people, real street scenes, behind the curtain scenes, live models, paintings, photographs, staged setups, architecture, grids, graphic design. Whatever it takes to make it work."
"I don't think the human mind can comprehend the past and the future. They are both just illusions that can manipulate you into thinking theres some kind of change."
"There is nothing so stable as change."
"I change during the course of a day. I wake and I'm one person, and when I go to sleep I know for certain I'm somebody else."
"You hear a lot about God these days: God, the beneficent God, the all-great God, the Almighty God, the most powerful God, the giver of life God, the creator of death. I mean, we're hearing about God all the time, so we better learn how to deal with it. But if we know anything about God, God is arbitrary."
