Janis Lyn Joplin was an American blues-influenced rock singer and occasional songwriter with a highly distinctive voice.

  1. Tomorrow never happens. It's all the same fucking day, man.
  2. Fourteen heart attacks and he had to die in my week. In MY week.
  3. Audiences like their blues singers to be miserable.
  4. Being an intellectual creates a lot of questions and no answers. You can fill your life up with ideas and still go home lonely. All you really have that really matters are feelings. That's what music is to me.
  5. Don't compromise yourself. You are all you've got.
  6. I'm one of those regular weird people.
  7. It's gonna be a long hard drag, but we'll make it.
  8. It's hard to be free but when it works, it' s worth it!
  9. On stage I make love to twenty five thousand people; and then I go home alone
