Quotations by Joan Baez

Action is the antidote to despair.

All serious daring starts from within.

As long as one keeps searching, the answers come.

If it’s natural to kill, how come men have to go into training to learn how?

Instead of getting hard ourselves and trying to compete, women should try to give their best qualities to men — bring them softness, teach them how to cry.

It seems to me that those songs that have been any good, I have nothing much to do with the writing of them. The words have just crawled down my sleeve and come out on the page.

I’ve never had a humble opinion in my life. If you’re going to have one, why bother to be humble about it?

Nonviolence is a flop. The only bigger flop is violence.

The easiest kind of relationship is with ten thousand people, the hardest is with one.

The only thing that’s been a worse flop than the organization of non-violence has been the organization of violence.
