Johnny Cash

If you watch these two videos you can only come away with one thought.. Johnny Cash, like fine wine, improved with age!

Here are a few quotes from the rock and country legend:

“You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don't try to forget the mistakes, but you don't dwell on it. You don't let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.”

“I start a lot more songs than I finish, because I realize when I get into them, they're no good. I don't throw them away, I just put them away, store them, get them out of sight.”

"I've probably had the equivalent of college in the roads I've traveled since then, but it would have been great to go from high school right into college to study music and literature."

“The Master of Life's been good to me. He has given me strength to face past illnesses, and victory in the face of defeat. He has given me life and joy where other saw oblivion. He Has given new purpose to live for, new services to render and old wounds to heal. Life and love go on, let the music play.”

  1. hi,

    I have always like Johnny Cash. In his rough voice and rustic way, he always represent the common man to me. Reading his biography and listening ot his songs brings me down to reality; that this is a tough world and even tougher to live out your faith.
