Thought

“I hate a song that makes you think that you are not any good. I hate a song that makes you think that you are just born to lose... Songs that run you down or poke fun at you on account of your bad luck or hard traveling. I am out to fight those songs to my very last breath of air and my last drop of blood.” — Woody Guthrie (1912-1967).
