Thread Name: Woody Guthrie Traveling Exhibit Story
Subject: RE: Woody Guthrie Traveling Exhibit Story
I found the following quote of Woody's that was on a pamphlet I saved from the exhibit. It's worth sharing.

"I am out to sing songs that will prove to you that this is your world and that if it has hit you pretty hard and knocked you for a dozen loops, no matter how hard it's run you down, and rolled over you, no matter what color, what size you are, how you are built; I am out to sing the songs that will make you take pride in yourself and in your work." --Woody Guthrie.

It's my habit to hold on to wisdom and look back on it as often as is needed. Hope you got something out of it. The exhibit is loaded with this elegence.
