Life Line

“I have a metaphor.  I say, “Look, you’re in a car, your new selves can get in, but your old selves can’t get out.”  You can bring new vision and guidance into your life, but you can’t lose or forget who you’ve been or what you’ve seen.  New people can get in, but nobody ever gets out: The child from 1950, he doesn’t get out.  The teenager, the adolescent boy, no one can get out.  They are with you until the end of the ride, and you’re going to pass a certain amount of them on.”

~ Bruce Springsteen, Rolling Stone Magazine, March 29, 2012, Issue 1153, p. 42
