“I didn’t have time to read, I wasn’t studying, wasn’t writing. I was basically promoting, going to radio stations, performing, battling bronchitis because there was so much smoke in venues. I thought, I see a lot of potential fame and fortune, but I don’t see a lot of human evolution. Nothing will stifle your human evolution more than fame and fortune.” via Patti Smith: punk poet queen | Music | The Guardian.
