When you’re a folk singer but you say you’re not a folk singer & ppl still label you as one
"To live in a time when Bob Dylan is making music and still putting out really good music is to live in a time when Walt Whitman is putting out poetry, when Yeats is writing poetry, when Gershwin is presenting new songs, when Dickens is saying, ‘Here’s my latest novel’ and when Melville is putting out a little book called Moby Dick. That’s the level and that’s the privilege that we have and that’s what we should be aware of, that Bob Dylan is in the world and we have to really cherish that Bob Dylan is in the world."
