  • "How well I have learned that there is no fence to sit on between heaven and hell. There is a deep, wide gulf, a chasm, and in that chasm is no place for any man."
  • "I am not a Christian artist, I am an artist who is a Christian."
  • "I did not vote for Mr. Bush, let's leave it at that."
  • "I wouldn't let anybody influence me into thinking I was doing the wrong thing by singing about death, hell and drugs. Because I've always done that, and I always will." - in acknowledgment of his similarity to today's gangsta rappers
  • "I learn from my mistakes. It's a very painful way to learn, but without pain, the old saying is, there's no gain."
  • "There's never been two months gone by that I haven't dreamed about him. He's tried to help turn me to the way of life." - in 2002, on his beloved brother Jack, who died in 1944 when Cash was 11.
  • "You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don't try to forget the mistakes, but you don't dwell on it. You don't let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space."
  • "You've got to know your limitations. I don't know what your limitations are. I found out what mine were when I was twelve. I found out that there weren't too many limitations, if I did it my way."
  • After about three lessons the voice teacher said, "Don't take voice lessons. Do it your way."
  • "You've got a song you're singing from your gut, you want that audience to feel it in their gut. And you've got to make them think that you're one of them sitting out there with them too. They've got to be able to relate to what you're doing."
  • "Success is having to worry about every damn thing in the world, except money."
