It's The End of the World as We Know It (I Feel Fine)

"They say that patriotism is the last refuge
To which a scoundrel clings
Steal a little and they throw you in jail
Steal a lot and they make you king
There's only one step down from here, baby
It's called the land of permanent bliss
What's a sweetheart like you doing in a dump like this ?"

Bob Dylan - "Sweetheart Like You" from the album "Infidels" - 1983

Why Did You Bring Your Guitar If You Are Not Going to Play?

"You have many contacts
Among the lumberjacks
To get you facts
When someone attacks your imagination
But nobody has any respect
Anyway they already expect you
To just give a check
To tax-deductible charity organizations
You’ve been with the professors
And they’ve all liked your looks
With great lawyers you have
Discussed lepers and crooks
You’ve been through all of
F. Scott Fitzgerald’s books
You’re very well read
It’s well known

Because something is happening here
But you don’t know what it is
Do you, Mister Jones?"

Bob Dylan - Ballad of a Thin Man

Winter Merlin

Woodie Allen on aging and death...

"I find it a lousy deal," he said. "There is no advantage in getting older. You don't get smarter, you don't get wiser, you don't get more mellow ... Your back gets sore, your eyesight gets worse ...  I would advise you not to do it."

"My relationship with death remains the same," he said. "I'm strongly against it."
