Golden Age

“I believe that we, that this planet, hasn’t seen its Golden Age. Everybody says it’s finished:  art’s finished, rock and roll is dead, God is dead. Fuck that! This is my chance in the world. I didn’t live back there in Mesopotamia, I wasn’t there in the Garden of Eden, I wasn’t there with Emperor Han, I’m right here right now and I want now to be the Golden Age.  If only each generation would realize that the time for greatness is right now when they’re alive.  The time to flower is now.”  ~Patti Smith
