“I have fallen in love with the World

and I am aware that I have chosen

the most dangerous Lover of them all”



“I’ll catch the Sun and never give it back again

I’ll catch the Sun and keep it for my own

And in a World where no one understands

I’ll take my outstretched hands and give it to anyone”




Finally this is very poignant, when Rod walked away from his career as he was exhausted.


“The long years later it is worse

for I remember what it was

as well as what it might have been”




I hope you have enjoyed these quotes of Rod McKuen’s, especially this week sees what would have been Rod’s Birthday on Friday April 29.
