You can't make people change, but the organizers of WorldFest hope that people consider being vegetarian for both moral and health reasons— Grace Slick
The most attractive Grace Slick quotes that are proven to give you inner joy
I like being in a recording studio. I like watching a song go from the simplicity of the original music.
Through literacy you can begin to see the universe.
Through music you can reach anybody. Between the two there is you, unstoppable.
I don't want to see old people doing rap or rock and roll. It makes me cringe.
When the truth is found to be lies, and all the joy within you dies.
Applause is interesting, but I'm a monster with or without it.
Something is either well written or it isn't. 'White Rabbit' is not well written, and no amount of applause or royalties can convince me it is. I could have done a better job with those lyrics. They didn't say what I wanted.
Insignificant events can take on monumental proportions when your head is full of practically nothing.
In school, I learned about artists and how they were free to express themselves.
I was allergic to conformity, and the lifestyle attracted me. I wanted to express myself in a way that slammed people up against the wall.
I collect stuffed animals, and toy stores make me happy.
Loss either teaches you to persist in the face of suffering, or hardens you into a bitter cynic. Sometimes, it does a little of both.
I am not strict vegan, because I'm a hedonist pig.
If I see a big chocolate cake that is made with eggs, I'll have it.
I don't miss anything about the 1960s, not really.
I did it. It's like asking, 'Do you miss the fourth grade?' I loved the fourth grade when I was in it, but I don't want to do it again.
There is an attitude that we should be able to have everything.
No, you shouldn't be able to have anything. I'd like a helicopter, but I can't afford a helicopter, so I don't buy one. People are buying stuff they can't afford on credit. I bought my Ford hybrid with cash.
I was appalled that the San Francisco ethic didn't mushroom and envelope the whole world into this loving community of acid freaks. I was very naive.
I stopped dropping acid for a while after my daughter was born.
It's hard to keep an eye on the kid while you're hallucinating.
'White Rabbit' was mostly done in about two days, the music in about half an hour. The music is a 'Bolero' rip-off and the lyrics a rearrangement of 'Alice in Wonderland.' You take two spectacular hits and throw them together, and it's hard to miss.
Woodstock is well known because this country is so hyped on amount.
It was big. Half a million people doesn't necessarily mean something is good. It just means it's big.
The main point for me is moral; animals are sentient beings. I know for some this is a hard argument to accept, but we're not built to eat a lot of meat.
I'm a John Denver freak, and I don't give a sh*t that he looks like a f***ing turkey.
'Feminist comedy,' practically an oxymoron, had a couple of good years after WWII. Chalk it up to the forced female autonomy that occurred during wartime, when Rosie the Riveter went to work in the factories, constructing the Allies' war machines while taking charge of the finances, the home, and the children.
I'm busy communicating ideas.... I want you to know what I'm thinking. If you feel a connection, good. If you don't, fine.
If I were gay, life would be a lot simpler. I'm kind of annoyed that I'm not.
Man is the only animal that knows he's going to die, so we invent a heaven to keep from going crazy. Most people are hypnotized by organized religion from childhood.
Jerry Garcia used to take his paints on the road.
I don't do that. Either I'm a singer or a painter. I'm not good at multi-tasking.
No matter how big or soft or warm your beds is, you still have to get out of it.
If you don't own the stage, you shouldn't be in rock n' roll.
I've enjoyed the accommodations offered by police departments from Florida to Hawaii. Any time I saw a badge, something in me would snap.
You either evolve or you don't. I don't like old people on a rock n' roll stage. I think they look pathetic, me included. And the fact that I represent an era means I can't just go out there and do all new stuff. They would all say, 'Sing 'White Rabbit,'' and I'd say no? That's rude.
You are the crown of creation, and you've got no place to go.
I don't imagine my parents are too excited about my kind of life.
The surrounding weirdness bothers them. Still, I think they're pretty good. Their lives are based on what their friends think, just like ours are.
I like Daughtry, I like Nickelback, I like Dave Matthews.
I like Beyonce - she's a really good entertainer.
Death is like taking an intermission when you can't come back. I like living and being around.
You can do any number of things in the music business aside from trying to look like you're 25. To me it's embarrassing.

From the knees up, everything is long but from ankle to knee, if I was in proportion, I'd be 5 feet 9.
When I was between the ages of five and nine, the soldiers of the Second World War wanted to have Betty Grable, but I wanted to be Betty Grable. She was the epitome of an alluring woman; she had it all as far as I was concerned.
Prancing around on stage is not the entire purpose of my life.
The way I paint is similar to rock in that you don't stand around and say, 'Gee, what are they talking about?' Rock is simple, blunt, colorful. Same with my paintings. You don't stand back and wonder what it is. That's Jim Morrison, that's a panda, that's a scene on the West Coast. It's not abstract.
Woodstock - I didn't see anybody play, except when I was standing backstage waiting to go on, because it was so muddy. And the weather was so horrible, you literally couldn't get there except by helicopter.
My solo albums were each like a half-finished puzzle;
they represented only the beginning of a full picture. Simply put, they were inadequate and incomplete.
Through your life, most people peel away the junk that's not useful, that's superfluous. You are determined to peel that away. I do one thing at a time. One man at a time. One car. One house. One child. One job.
Feed your head. Feed your head. Feed your head
In Germany I ingested the entire contents of the hotel mini-bar before a show and stuck my fingers in this guy's nostrils because I thought they would fit.
I find it amusing on one level, poignant on another, when people try to get recognition from an outside source. It's sad.
I'm a commercial artist, both in music and art.
With all due respect to Mick Jagger, who is one of my idols, I think it's a mistake to leap around and sing at 53. When I started, there weren't any women I looked up to. It was Mick. I never saw anybody go on a stage and have that tongue-in-cheek attitude. It was all straight, including the Beatles. I love his attitude, hands on hips and lips out.
Things change so fast, you can't use 1971 ethics on someone born in 1971.
Some of the most interesting and happiest kids I've seen have lived with a lot of different adults, because a kid can go up to one guy and wear him out. And as soon as the adult gets tired, there are five other guys, or five other chicks to go and wear out, and the kid gets to be very bright - and tolerant, you know, with that many kinds of people around.
Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead did as much for mankind as any president.
Mainly I make music, and you can do that until you drop dead.
All rock-and-rollers over the age of 50 look stupid and should retire
