“You will never find happiness until you stop looking for it.”
– Willie Nelson, Turk Pipkin (2006). The Tao of Willie: A Guide to the Happiness in Your Heart

“If you can be content right now, then you’ll always be content, because it’s always right now.”
– Facebook, 2016

“The reason pot’s not legal is because most people get up in the morning and get high, then forget to go out and vote for it.”
– Willie Nelson, SF Gate, 2000

“I was in the Air Force a while and they had what they call “policing the area.” And I think that’s a pretty good thing to go by. If everyone just takes care of their own area then we won’t have any problems. Be here. Be present. Wherever you are, be there. And look around you and see what needs to be changed.”
– Wisdom: 50 Unique and Original Portraits

“Memories remind us that every moment of our lives, even the most tragic, have contributed to our strength. We’ve gotten through. We’re still here. “
– It’s A Long Story: My Life

“Oh, I think it’s definitely spiritual. All music is. I think it’s maybe one of the highest forms of spirituality.”
– Behind Closed Doors: Talking With The Legends Of Country Music

“Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll start having positive results.”
– Willie Nelson, Turk Pipkin (2006). The Tao of Willie: A Guide to the Happiness in Your Heart

“There is only one map to the journey of life and it lives within your heart.”
– Facebook post, 2012

“I learned some invaluable lessons in Nashville that apply to both farming and showbusiness: Do not corner something you know is meaner than you; keep skunks of all kinds at a distance; if you forgive your enemies, it messes up their heads.”
– Willie Nelson, Turk Pipkin (2006). ‘The Tao of Willie: A Guide to the Happiness in Your Heart

“The police mostly want autographs now. They don’t really bother me anymore for the weed, because you can bust me now and I’ll pay my fine or go to jail, get out and burn one on the way home. They know they’re not stopping me.”
– Rolling Stone 2014
