Great Quotations: Bruce Springsteen

Written by July 23rd, 2012 at 11:11 am

“My dad was very nonverbal — you couldn’t really have a conversation with him. I had to make my peace with that, but I had to have a conversation with him, because I needed to have one. It ain’t the best way to go about it, but that was the only way I could, so I did, and eventually he did respond. He might not have liked the songs, but I think he liked that they existed. It meant that he mattered. He’d get asked, ‘What are your favorite songs?’ And he’d say, ‘The ones that are about me.’ ”

Bruce Springsteen (via The New Yorker)
