Joan Baez

b 9 January 1941

Singer, songwriter, activist and campaigner

 

Action is the antidote to despair.

 

The only thing that's been a worse flop than the organization of non-violence has been the organization of violence.

 

Hypothetical questions get hypothetical answers.

 

Instead of getting hard ourselves and trying to compete, women should try and give their best qualities to men - bring them softness, teach them how to cry.

 

You don't get to choose how you are going to die or when. You can only decide how you're going to live.

 

I've never had a humble opinion. If you've got an opinion, why be humble about it?
