Patti Smith On Strong Women
"I could not help thinking that he had two strong women in his corner. One who faltered and one who did not, yet both had nothing in mind but to serve his work well." - Patti Smith on her moving performance of "A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall" by Bob Dylan at the Nobel Peace Prize Ceremony. "As I took my seat, I felt the humiliating sting of failure, but also the strange realization that I had somehow entered and truly lived the world of the lyrics."
