Quotes by Paul Simon

"I've got nothing to do today but smile."

"It's actually very difficult to make something both simple and good."

"Some people never say the words ‘I love you’, for like a child they’re longing to be told."

"I have my books
And my poetry to protect me;
I am shielded in my armor,
Hiding in my room, safe within my womb.
I touch no one and no one touches me.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

"Sometimes even music cannot substitute for tears."
