FIve Great Johnny Cash quotes

If Johnny Cash were alive, he'd be celebrating his 81st birthday today, probably with a big plate full of good old Southern food.

My love for Johnny Cash has grown over the years, and I developed an even greater admiration for the man when I recently read his autobiography Cash.

His book had the down-home approach you might expect, telling about everything from his early days growing up, to the grim details of his battles with drug addiction, to his very close relationship with God. I highly recommend it.

I'm not sure if all these quotes came from his book, but I think they're pretty good ones.

“My arms are too short to box with God.”

“I wore black because I liked it. I still do, and wearing it still means something to me. It's still my symbol of rebellion -- against a stagnant status quo, against our hypocritical houses of God, against people whose minds are closed to others' ideas.”

“I'm not bitter. Why should I be bitter? I'm thrilled to death with life.”

“Success is having to worry about every damn thing in the world, except money.”

 
"I love songs about horses, railroads, land, Judgment Day, family, hard times, whiskey, courtship, marriage, adultery, separation, murder, war, prison, rambling, damnation, home, salvation, death, pride, humor, piety, rebellion, patriotism, larceny, determination, tragedy, rowdiness, heartbreak and love. And Mother. And God.”
