New Yorker writer Jonah Lehrer made up Bob Dylan quotes for his book Imagine: How Creativity Works. Apparently, he was getting creative himself. Unfortunately, his book was non-fiction, so if he couldn't find quotes to support his argument, he should have altered his argument and not made up quotes to fit it. Conclusions should come from evidence and not the reverse.
However, I can sympathize with Lehrer. Making up Bob Dylan quotes is fun. Who can resist? Here are a few of my own. Feel free to join in with your own in the comments section.
"Life is a journey. Death is the destination. Suicide is just a shortcut," Bob Dylan said.
"I really like midget wrestling," Bob Dylan said.
"I'll take the eggs and ham," Bob Dylan said.
"Where's the restroom?" Bob Dylan said.
"Ringo was my favorite Beatle. He didn't smell as badly as the others," Bob Dylan said.
"Obama is like Bush Lite. Or maybe Bush Dark. I don't know. It's Thursday," Bob Dylan said.
"Woody Guthrie would have done a car commercial too," Bob Dylan said.
"I haven't made a good record since 1975, yet Rolling Stone still gives my albums five star reviews. Those people must be idiots," Bob Dylan said.
"Actually the 60s kind of sucked, man. To tell you the truth, I kind of preferred the 80s. I really had fun in the Traveling Wilburys," Bob Dylan said.
"One sugar, two creams," Bob Dylan said.
