Patti Smith

Build a good name. Keep your name clean. Don’t make compromises, don’t worry about making a bunch of money or being successful. Be concerned about doing good work. Protect your work and if you build a good name, eventually that name will be its own currency.

  • Patti Smith :))) I’m so in love with her writing, her sensitivity and thoughtful, creative use of words which carry some beautiful nostalgia. Every day I prey for her well being and health so she makes it to my country (Poland) for a concert next month, I can’t wait..

  • I saw Patti Smith in concert when she was touring with Lilith Fair. She was extremely rude to the crowd for not being enthusiastic enough for her. She started swearing at us and stormed off the stage. Needless to say, she did not make a good name for herself in Columbus, Ohio.
