Cowboy wisdom

Don’t write a song unless you have something to say.

I like myself better when I’m writing regularly.

I take it not only a day at a time, but a moment at a time, and keep it at that pace. If you can be happy right now, then you’ll always be happy, because it’s always in the now.

If I had the chance to do it all over again, I’d do it exactly the same. Wrong or right, it’s my life. Sounds like a song, doesn’t it?

Ninety-nine percent of the world’s lovers are not with their first choice. That’s what makes the jukebox play.

Sometimes you’re fooling around on the guitar and suddenly you just played a piece of a new song and it wakes you up. You think, What was that? I just wrote a song. Of course, then you can’t remember it.

My doctor tells me I should start slowing it down — but there are more old drunks than there are old doctors so let’s all have another round.

All from Willie Nelson
