Great Quotations: Dan Bern


Probably for a good 10, 15 years I was writing on average a song every 10 days, like 80 songs a year, but now that seems paltry. I pat myself on the back now if I can get through a tour without writing a song, allowing myself to stay present, because what writing does, as much as it’s this amazing thing that freezes moments, what you’re doing is freezing a rapidly approaching past moment. So while you’re scribbling and drawing your brain cells for a rhyme, maybe you miss that next passing cloud.

— Dan Bern (via The Aquarian)
