    • One pill makes you larger And one pill makes you small, And the ones that mother gives you don't do anything at all. Go ask Alice when she's ten feet tall.
    • And if you go chasing rabbits And you know you're going to fall, Tell 'em a hookah smokin' caterpillar has given you the call. Call Alice when she was just small.
    • When the men on the chessboard get up and tell you where to go And you've just had some kind of mushroom, and your mind is moving low, Go ask Alice I think she'll know.
    • When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead, And the White Knight is talking backwards and the Red Queen's lost her head, Remember what the dormouse said: Feed your head, feed your head.
    • In Germany I ingested the entire contents of the hotel mini-bar before a show and stuck my fingers in this guy's nostrils because I thought they would fit.

    • Janis knew more than I did about 'how it was', but she lacked enough armor for the inevitable hassles. She was open and spontaneous enough to get her heart trampled with a regularity that took me thirty years to experience or understand. On the various occasions when we were together, she seemed to be holding in something she thought I might not want to hear, like older people do when they hear kids they love saying with absolute youthful confidence, 'Oh, that'll never happen to me.' Sometimes you know you can't tell them how it is, they have to find out for themselves. Janis felt like an old soul, a wisecracking grandmother whom everybody loved to visit. When I was with her, I often felt like a part of her distant family, a young upstart relative who was still too full of her own sophistry to hear wisdom. Did we compliment each other? Yes, but not often enough. ~ On Janis Joplin
    • I smoke every minute that I'm awake and have since I was 15, It's so stupid; it doesn't even get me high. Which is just as well, I suppose. My mind's been altered enough.
    • I felt a closeness and just amazement at Monterey because people were comfortable, there was enough area for people to sit, to go to the bathroom, to buy food. It was the first time many of the bands had met each other, so we were all really marveling at each other. It was just one good group of people after another. And different kinds of music - from Ravi Shankar to The Mamas & The Papas, The Who, Jimi Hendrix - I mean, it was just nuts! ~ On the Monterey Pop Festival
    • I want my contribution to help end the suffering of rabbits and other animals now being poisoned and killed by the makers of Tide, Crest and Crisco. ~ On donating some of her royalties from 'White Rabbit' to PETA

    • If you remember the Sixties, you weren't there.
    • It's none of the governments business who comes to, in, on or from my body.
    • No matter how big or soft or warm your bed is, you still have to get out of it.
    • Through literacy you can begin to see the universe. Through music you can reach anybody. Between the two there is you, unstoppable.
    • We are your parents' worst nightmare.
    • I don't like old people on a rock and roll stage. . . me included.
    • There is much to be said for personal violence. Even Joan Baez flattens velvet, when she sits down.
    • A startling presence, both vocally and visually... Off the cuff, like the whole '60's were off the cuff. An Oscar Wilde in drag who combined insight and sarcasm that was sometimes light, sometimes dark. A provocateur. ~ Paul Kantner as quoted in The Buffalo News (6 September 1991)
