Quote of the Day
Anybody can be unhappy. We can all be hurt. You don't have to be poor to need something or somebody. Rednecks, hippies, misfits - we're all the same. Gay or straight? So what? It doesn't matter to me. We have to be concerned about other people, regardless.
Though it's frequently portrayed as this crazy, unbridled festival of rain-soaked, stoned hippies dancing in the mud, Woodstock was obviously much more than that - or we wouldn't still be talking about it in 2009. People of all ages and colors came together in the fields of Max Yasgur's farm.
My personal style is a mixture of, like, girly, throwback, like retro '50s pin-ups, floral, like hippies, like anything feminine, and like flirty.
No, I come for a hippy lifestyle, it's very open; my parents are both hippies.
For me and my entire generation, we took on this kind of sarcastic, ironic, snarkiness because it seemed the most extreme reaction to the earnestness of hippies.
The hippies wanted peace and love. We wanted Ferraris, blondes and switchblades.
Looking back, there is nothing wrong with that peace, love and equality that the hippies espoused. In many ways, we have regressed because they were into organic food, back to nature, make love not war, be good to all men, share and share alike - which is what many are talking about now.
I have busted more hippies' noses than all the narcs in the free world.
All hippies around now just represent complete apathy.
Hippies are so phoney and fake.
Elvis was the only man from Northeast Mississippi who could shake his hips and still be loved by rednecks, cops, and hippies.
Bonobo studies started in the '70s and came to fruition in the '80s. Then in the '90s, all of a sudden, boom, they ended because of the warfare in the Congo. It was really bad for the bonobo and ironic that people with their warfare were preventing us from studying the hippies of the primate world.
Frans de Waal
The reason why I am proud of my part in the punk movement is that I think it really did implant a message that was already there. The hippies told it to me, but punk made it something cool for people to stand up for, which is that we do not believe government, that we are against government.
I hate the word 'hippy'. I hate a lot of people, and hippies don't do that!
It's funny how the hippies and the punks tried to get rid of the conservatives, but they always seem to get the upper hand in the end.
Certainly there's a huge appeal to the '60s, because it was such a big turning point to everyone. It was the era of change, the boiling point. People rebelled against things - the hippies, the feminists, the protesters. All these things just built up and boiled over. I think people can relate to that today.
I was admired by all these hippies, and it was wonderful playing at Monterey and Woodstock, performing for half a million people.
People ask if my parents are hippies, but they're actually very conservative. A girl called Rebel sang at their wedding, and that's where my name came from.
Hippies? Why, I'm the original.
Jerry Lee Lewis
The hippy movement was a failure. All hippies around now just represent complete apathy. There's a million good reasons why the thing failed, OK. But the only thing we've got to live with is that it failed.
The kids today have these fresh faces. It's like they're on pins and needles, waiting to see what I'm going to do. They've never seen me. In the 1960s, those were hippies. They were wired up already. The kids today know me because I've worked with Jeff Tweedy and other young producers.
I was born in Manhattan on West 12th. My parents were kind of hippies and they did a home birth.
Everyone look around and see if you can spot the NARCS. They're the ones who look like hippies.
Robert Anton Wilson
I've always despised the hippies.
It takes only one bad amp to turn your ears to oatmeal: That's how old hippies became Yanni fans.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
