Bicycles are almost as good as guitars for meeting girls.— Bob Weir
The most tempting Bob Weir quotes that may be undiscovered and unusual
What if all tomorrow brings is ashes and glass, and I can't tell you child, 'this too shall pass.' If all the world were windswept, cold and gray. And in the end there's nothing left to say.
The same song on a different day was a different song.
I think if people value democracy, they had damn well better get out and exercise their right to vote while their vote still means something.
If for instance, in a board meeting, if you have an idea, it better be a good idea, or you're not going to get everybody's attention.
We're just inviting adventure into our life, and adventure carries a little baggage.
I think it's real important that people understand where the music comes from.
If you can see where the music comes from, you can also see the future. It gives you a trajectory.

And second, we wanted to challenge ourselves. We wanted to bring what is ostensibly new music to fresh ears and see what lights them up.
The roughest part for me when I'm writing a song is staring at a blank page.
Where am I going from here? If you're a songwriter, you have to do that every time you start a song.
The ones that catch your eye are the ones that are basically people who live on the road and follow us around. They're a small percentage of the audience, but they're quite visible. The ones who aren't visible are the stockbrokers, lawyers, doctors, housewives.
I still retain a bit of a child's focus on things, so we [with my sister] figure if we're going to write books, our best shot is to write children's books, because we relate pretty readily on that level.
Dynamic benign neglect.
Slowly you become your own man.
We have cultural depth. We get all kinds of stuff to chew on, to live on.
I have not made many conscious efforts to "re-imagine" songs.
I just let them happen the way they're going to happen.
I don't get the stuff that I carry around in my head from TV, and especially I don't get the stuff that I carry around in my heart from TV.
They're protecting an archaic industry. They should turn their attention to new models.
More fun than a frog in a glass of milk.
Everybody has something to bring to the table.
The meetings can be a lot of fun or they can be frustrating.
The rule is not written anywhere, it's not etched in any - but, I mean, that's the prevailing attitude of this entire society. Don't have an adventure.
Sometimes the magic works and sometimes it doesn't.
Our lives are interesting.
What's changed? I'm a dad. That's fundamental. Watching your kids grow, you go back a bit. You can watch a bug crawling around for minutes at a time--just sit and marvel at its complexity, the utter bugness of it. I've learned to do that again.
Sometimes it's a huge amble, where you're just on top, on the lid, and it's not going anywhere, and sometimes you walk on the stage and from the first note, the afterburner kicks in and you can't stop it.
The stockbrokers, their hair isn't long and full of leaves and stuff like that, so they don't catch your eye. They're wearing the tie-dye, so they don't stick out, but you don't see them. The ones you see are the ones with the leaves in their hair, the matted hair and all that kind of stuff.
If you want to promote anything, all the work that you put into it is basically promoting the idea of it so that people will go for it. And if they don't go for it, you can't institute it. You can't do it.

What I like best about music is when time goes away.
That's right! The women are smarter!
Grace isn't enough. You've got to intend to be there when it's happening.
We have a society that's trying to make sure that nobody gets any adventures because adventures are dangerous and danger is bad.
