Canuck Quotes: Bruce Cockburn

[ 0 ] January 14, 2010 |

“When the Sept.11 thing happened and all that’s followed it, I felt first of all what good are songs in a context like this? Everything I’d written to that point seemed kind of meaningless. But then better judgement took hold and I realized that now more than ever we need to engage in the sharing of human experience.”

“On some level–you may be staring at your demons or staring at angels, or you may be making mud pies, I suppose– but you’re still looking something in the eye in order to create anything of value.”

“There is that invisible motion that’s central to existence. And it might even be true to say that is what God is.”

I'm a Canadian who has lived in the United States since 1999. I love the beauty of the Canadian landscape and dream about travelling to EVERY country in the world so I can say, without a doubt, that Canada is the MOST BEAUTIFUL country in the world. Until I can accomplish this feat of huge financial proportions, I'll continue to appease myself by writing about Canada's many, MANY virtues. Google+
