„Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens“

—  Jimi Hendrix

Varianta: Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.

„Purple haze, all in my brain
Lately things just don't seem the same“

—  Jimi Hendrix

Purple Haze
kiss the sky is often misheard by listeners as kiss this guy (see wikipedia mondegreen). Aware of that, in concerts, Jimi sometimes sang "'Scuse me while I kiss THAT guy".
Song lyrics, Are You Experienced? (1967)
Kontext: Purple haze, all in my brain
Lately things just don't seem the same,
Acting funny, but I don't know why,
'Scuse me while I kiss the sky.

„I don't really live on compliments. As a matter of fact, they have a way of distracting me.“

—  Jimi Hendrix

Dick Cavett interview (1969)
Kontext: I don't really live on compliments. As a matter of fact, they have a way of distracting me. I know a whole lot of musicians, artists out there who hears the compliments and thinks "wow, I must have been really great" and so they get fat and satisfied and they get lost and forget about their actual talent and start living in another world.

„They don't have the patience to really check out what's happenin' through music, theater and science.“

—  Jimi Hendrix

As quoted in "WHAT HENDRIX NEVER SAID : They Don't Want to Know What He Really Said and Demand a Slacker Fantasy Instead" (22 March 2010) by Michael Fairchild, at rockprophecy.com; the author does not provide any sourcing for this statement, beyond his assertion that his authority and expertise should be trusted because: "I was assigned to compile all known quotes of Jimi Hendrix and edit this text into the "autobiography" of Jimi, in his own words. That book has been censored/suppressed by all world publishers for two decades now, but it's where I became familiar with Jimi's unique syntax, vernacular, and habits of thought."

Kontext: There's so many tight-lipped ideas and laws around, and people put themselves in uniforms so tightly, that it's almost impossible to break out of that. Subconsciously, what these people are doing, they're killin' off all these little flashes they have, cutting off the idea of wanting to understand. They forgot, didn't believe, or just snuffed the feelings or thoughts off to continue with their crazy soul. They don't have the patience to really check out what's happenin' through music, theater and science. It’s like a spaceship. If a spaceship came down and you know nothin’ about it, the first thing you’re going to think about is shooting it. In other words, you get negative in the first place, which is not really the natural way of thinking. It’s like shooting at a flying saucer as it tries to land without giving the occupants a chance to identify themselves.

„You got me blowin, blowin my mind,
Is it tomorrow or just the end of time?“

„Pretty soon I believe people will have to rely on music to get some kind of peace of mind, or satisfaction, or direction, actually. More so than politics, the big ego scene. You know it's an art of words… Meaning nothing.“

—  Jimi Hendrix

When asked if music has a meaning
Dick Cavett interview (1969)
Kontext: Definitely, and it's getting more spiritual. Pretty soon I believe people will have to rely on music to get some kind of peace of mind, or satisfaction, or direction, actually. More so than politics, the big ego scene. You know it's an art of words... Meaning nothing. Therefore you will have to get an earthier substance, like music or the arts.

„And so castles made of sand slips into the sea, eventually..“

„I take my spirit and I smash my mirrors,
And now the whole world is here for me to see,
Now I'm searching for my love to be.“

—  Jimi Hendrix

Room Full Of Mirrors
Song lyrics, Rainbow Bridge (1971)
Kontext: I used to live in a room full of mirrors,
All I could see was me.
Then I take my spirit and I smash my mirrors,
And now the whole world is here for me to see,
Now I'm searching for my love to be.
