Here is Yellow Magpie’s selection of the best Johnny Cash quotes.
‘For you I know I’d even try to turn the tide.’
‘My father was a man of love. He always loved me to death. He worked hard in the fields but my father never hit me. Never. I don’t ever remember a really cross, unkind word from my father.’
‘When I record a song somebody else’s sung, I have to make it my own or it doesn’t feel right. I’ll say to myself, I wrote this and he doesn’t know it.’
‘How well have I learned that there is no fence to sit on between heaven and hell. There is a deep, wide gulf, a chasm and in that chasm is no place any man.’
‘You’ve got to know your limitations. I don’t know what your limitations are. I found out what mine were when I was twelve. I found out that there weren’t too many if I did it my way.’
‘It is like a novelist writing far out things. If it makes a point and makes sense, then people like to read that. But if it’s off in left field and goes over the edge, you lose it. The same with musical talent, I think.’
That was the big thing when I was growing up, singing on the radio. The extent of my dream was to sing on the radio station in Memphis. Even when I got out of the Air Force in 1954, I came right back to Memphis and started knocking on doors at the radio station.’
‘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.’
‘Success is having to worry about every damn thing in the world except money.’
