Patti Smith Quote: “I was so involved in my boy-rhythms that I never came to grips with the fact that I was a girl. I was twelve years old when my mother took me inside and said, “You can’t be outside wrestling without a T-shirt on.” It was a trauma.”

He was inaccessible to a girl but I loved him anyway.”

Patti Smith Quote: “I started thinking what could happen with my art and I realized that the biggest thing that could is that it winds up in a museum. It’s like finding a rare animal and putting it in the zoo.”
Patti Smith Quote: “Nothing bothered me, not even the things that bothered me.”
