"He's a poet, he's a picker / He's a prophet, he's a pusher / He's a pilgrim and a preacher / And a problem when he's stoned.  He's a walkin' contradiction, party truth and partly fiction / Taking every wrong direction on his lonely way back home."  - Kris Kristofferson

"If you're going to kick authority in the teeth, you might as well use two feet."  - Keith Richards

"Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom."  - Joe Strummer
