Don van Vliet aka Captain Beefheart (2)

I'd never just want to do what everybody else did.
I'd be contributing to the sameness of everything.

If you want to be a different fish,
you got to jump out of the school.

I don't even know what sound is, much less what it's for.
It isn't to make money that's for sure. I've never made any.

The way I keep in touch with the world is gingerly,
because the world touches too hard.

When I see a dolphin, I know it's just as smart as I am.

I don't do lullabyes.

I think Shakespeare is really the one.
Words as music and music as words.
Everything he wrote was good,
which is really frightening.

You can tell by the kindness of a dog
how a human should be.

An artist is one who kids himself the most gracefully.
