10. "The movies, I thought, have got the soundtrack to war all wrong. War isn't rock 'n' roll. It's got nothing to do with Jimi Hendrix or Richard Wagner. War is nursery rhymes and early Madonna tracks. War is the music from your childhood. Because war, when it's not making you kill or be killed, turns you into an infant. For the past eight days, I'd been living like a five-year-old — a nonexistence of daytime naps, mushy food, and lavatory breaks. My adult life was back in Los Angeles with my dirty dishes and credit card bills."
Author: Chris Ayres
11. "Had Kurt Cobain not committed suicide in 1994, would his genius have survived the continuous incisions of a media that was only too proud of its ability to chisel away at his fragile psyche in the years before he decided that he'd had enough off their invasions? And, had Jimi Hendrix not passed way in 1970, would he, too have eventually fallen into decline, first equalled, then eclipsed by the brilliant wave of new guitarists: Robin Trower, Ritchie Blackmore, Mick Ronson, who emerged during the early 1970s? In death, Hendrix led by example: in life he could have been left for the dead."
Author: Dave Thompson

Author: Emma Chase
15. "I don't think Jimi committed suicide in the conventional way. He just decided to exit when he wanted to."
Author: Eric Burdon
16. "It never was about the musician or the instrument - it was about the laser notes in a hall of mirrors, the music itself. It was going to change the world for the better and it has. Maybe not as fast or as much as we wanted, but it has and it still will. Whether your name is Mozart, or Django Reinhardt, or Robert Johnson, or Jimi Hendrix, or whoever is next; who you are doesn't matter so long as you can open that conduit and let the music come through. It is the burning edge, whatever it sounds like and whoever is playing it. It is the noisy, messy, silly, invincible voice of life that comes through the LP on the turn-table, the transistor radio, or the Bose in your new Lexus that makes you want to get up out of whatever you are stuck in and dance. It is Dionysus and the Maenads all over again. No one can control it and I pity whoever tries. I am old now and only a house cat sunning herself in the window - but I was a tigress once, and I remember. I still remember."
Author: G.J. Paterson
17. "Cloveški rod ni vec skromen. Nima cašcenja. Je aroganten in poln lastne tehnologije. Stalno se zavaja s svojimi iluzijami, da obvladuje svoje stvari, in tako ustvarja kaos in še vedno hoce videti, da je svet nemogoce obvladati. Jemljemo od Zemlje in drug drugega. Unicujemo gozdove, oceane, in ozracje. Drug drugega zasužnjujemo, mucimo pretepamo, ponižujemo in morimo."
Author: Gary Zukav
18. "Razvojni proces, do katerega prihaja na ravni posameznika, je isti proces, ki se odvija na ravni medsebojnih odnosov med posamezniki. Ko posameznik vnese energijo pralika duhovnega partnerstva, to ne vpliva na partnerstvo, ki ga oblikuje z drugim posameznikom, ampak tudi na skupnost, narod in cel svet. Vaša odlocitev, da se se boste razvijali zavestno odgovorno z izbiro, prispeva ne samo k vaši lastni evoluciji, ampak tudik evoluciji vseh tistih vidikov cloveštva, v katerih sodelujete. S svojimi odlocitvami se ne razvijate samo vi, marvec celotno cloveštvo."
Author: Gary Zukav
19. "Ko spznate moc svoje zavesti, da ima torej to, kar je za vašimi ocmi, vec moci, kot pa to, kar se dogaja pred njimi, se vaše notranje in zunanje zaznave spremenijo. Ne morete socustvovati s seboj, ne da bi socustvovali z drugimi, ali pa z drugimi, ne da bi socustvovali s samim seboj. Ko socustvujete s seboj in drugimi, postane vaš svet socuten. Nase pritegujete druge duše s podobno frekvenco in z njimi ustvarjate s svojimi nameni in dejanji ter medsebojni odnosi socuten svet."
Author: Gary Zukav

Author: Hedi Slimane
23. "I am the flying saucer man from another world trapped on yours until they come to rescue me. One day the saucer will land. Jimi Hendrix and John Coltrane will open the hatch and tell me to get in before someone tries to blow up the ship. I'll just ask what took them so long. Within seconds we'll be out of here."
Author: Henry Rollins

43. "Ona je kot kmetic, ki zasadi vrt, ko pa zagleda prve poganjke, se zboji, da jim lahko kaj škoduje. Zato si omisli široko plahto, odporno proti vodi in vetru, ter jo razprostre nad svojimi rastlinicami, da jih zavaruje pred slabim vremenom; da bi odgnal listne uši in licinke, pa jih še obilno poškropi z insekticidom. Dela brez predaha, noc in dan misli le na vrt in na to, kako ga bo zašcitila. Potem pa nekega jutra dvigne plahto in doživi kaj neljubo presenecenje: vse rastlinice so segnile in umrle. Ce bi jim pustila svobodno rasti, bi sicer ene pomrle, toda druge bi preživele in poleg zasejanih bi pognale še tretje, ki bi jih zanesla tja veter in mrces. Nekatere bi postale plevel in bi jih populil, druge pa bi morda zrasle v cvetlice in bi s svojimi barvami poživile enolicni vrt. Me razumeš? Je že tako, v življenju je potrebna širokosrcnost; obdelovati svoj mali znacajcek in biti slep za vse okrog sebe pomeni, da sicer dihaš, v resnici pa si že mrtev."
Author: Susanna Tamaro
44. "Richard Lloyd of Television is one of my favorite guitarists. His mentor was Jimi Hendrix when he was just 14. Jimi was always pounding everything he knew into that kid."
