Janis Joplin
Well, Iím gonna show you, baby, that a woman can be tough.
I want you to come on, come on, come on, come on and take it,
Take another little piece of my heart now, baby!
Joplin quotes
Fourteen heart attacks and he had to die in my week. In MY week.
Joplin
Tomorrow never happens. It's all the same fucking day, man.




Joplin Janis quotes
Wow, that's heavy.
Joplin Janis
Janis knew more than I did about "how it was", but she lacked enough armor for the inevitable hassles. She was open and spontaneous enough to get her heart trampled with a regularity that took me thirty years to experience or understand. On the various occasions when we were together, she seemed to be holding in something she thought I might not want to hear, like older people do when they hear kids they love saying with absolute youthful confidence, "Oh, that'll never happen to me." Sometimes you know you can't tell them how it is, they have to find out for themselves. Janis felt like an old soul, a wisecracking grandmother whom everybody loved to visit. When I was with her, I often felt like a part of her distant family, a young upstart relative who was still too full of her own sophistry to hear wisdom.
Did we compliment each other? Yes, but not often enough.
Janis Joplin quotes
Aní I donít want much outa life,
I never wanted a mansion in the south.
I just-a want to find someone sincere
Whoíd treat me like he talks,
One good man.
Janis Joplin
Work me, lord. Please don't you leave me. I feel so useless down here with no one to love. Though I looked everywhere, and I can't find me anybody to love, to feel my care...So, work me lord, oh, use me lord. Can I show you how hard it is trying to live when you're all alone? Everyday I keep trying to move forward but something is driving me, oh, back. Something's trying to hold on to me, to my way of life. So, oh, don't you forget me down here lord, no no no no no, don't you forget me, lord. Well I don't think I'm any very special kind of person down here, I know better. But I don't think you're gonna find anybody, not anybody who can say that they tried like I tried. The worst that you can say all about me is that I'm never satisfied...
Joplin Janis quotes
You know you got it if it makes you feel good.
Joplin
One good man,
Oh ainít much, honey ainít much,
Itís only everything...
Joplin Janis
Honey, I love to go to parties,
And I like to have a good time,
But if it gets too pale after a while
Honey and I start looking to find
One good man.
Janis Joplin
Musicís for grooving man, and musicís not for puttiní yourself through bad changes, yíknow? I mean, you donít have to go take anybodyís shit, man, just to like music, yíknow what I mean? You donít. So... so if youíre gettingí more shit than you deserve, you know what to do about it man. Yíknow, itís just music. Musicís... music's síposed to be different than that.




Janis Joplin quotes
Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose,
Nothing donít mean nothing honey if it ainít free...
And feeling good was easy, lord, when he sang the blues.
You know feeling good was good enough for me,
Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee.
