Paul Simon's quotes

  • The public hungers to see talented young people kill themselves.
  • Dylan [Bob Dylan] frequently reinvents himself, and at a very sophisticated level. Nobody ever did it better. That's his real genius. He's still interesting. "Love and Theft" is a fascinating record.
  • If a song lives for a couple of years, it's a pretty good thing.
  • [on recording "Graceland" in South Africa] I did not set out to make a political statement. I was making a cultural statement with political implications.
  • What I'm thinking about now and what I'm talking about is really not for a huge audience. It would be unusual to find anybody at my age who is selling enormous amounts of records to the record-buying public.
  • The public will always find the artists it needs.
  • I like to reinvent the old material, take the songs somewhere they maybe haven't been.
  • When I listened to what popular music was in South Africa, it wasn't political music.
