Leonard Cohen 1934-2016

Leonard Cohen quotes:
"We're always experiencing joy or sadness. But there are lots of people who've closed down. And there are times in one's life when one has to close down just to regroup. "
"I am an old scholar, better-looking now than when I was young. That's what sitting on your ass does to your face. "
"When you stop thinking about yourself all the time, a certain sense of repose overtakes you.  "


  1. This has been a hard year: we've lost a lot of wonderful musicians (among other things). Thanks for celebrating LC's life and marking his passing. I was a long-time fan.

  2. I recently finished reading the New Yorker article on him and he was in my thoughts. What a loss of an artist. Thanks for sharing this post with us.

  3. I didn't think I could grieve any more this week, but then this. Heart breaks. And, ironically, Wed. morning as I was sobbing inconsolably, DH played Leonard's Democracy. Brilliant, wonderful man.

  4. My heart sank. A wonderful human being and artist. Just two days before, I introduce my children to his "Famous Blue Raincoat". So Long, Marianne! So Long Leonard!

  5. So sad. I was intrigued to see the kitty in the photo - trust you to find this! - and I decided to see what there was on the net about LC and cats and found this wonderful piece which shows what a great person he was to cats and people:
