Happy Birthday, Bob Dylan!

Happy Birthday, Bob Dylan!

For today's post, since this is Bob Dylan's birthday, I figured I'd make quote art inspired by his 1974 song, "Forever Young" which I love.  The lyrics are so sweet and beautiful.  He is truly saying what every parent wants their child to hear. The lyrics are listed below the art.  I personally would like to dedicate this song to my son, Maddox.

"Forever Young"

May God bless and keep you always /  May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others /  And let others do for you
May you build a ladder to the stars /  And climb on every rung
May you stay forever young, Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.

May you grow up to be righteous /  May you grow up to be true
May you always know the truth /  And see the lights surrounding you
May you always be courageous /  Stand upright and be strong
May you stay forever young, Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.

May your hands always be busy /  May your feet always be swift
May you have a strong foundation /  When the winds of changes shift
May your heart always be joyful /  And may your song always be sung
May you stay forever young, Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.

I also highly recommend picking up (or checking out at your local library) Forever Young by Bob Dylan, the children's book based on this 1974 classic and inspired by the birth of his son, Jakob (who later became the frontman of the band The Wallflowers, releasing a single in 1997 that you may recall titiled  "One Headlight").

I consider Forever Young to be one of the most uplifting books to keep in your child's collection as I find it to be quite uplifting holding the same caliber as Dr. Seuss, The Berenstains and Eric Carle.  Not to mention, the illustrations by Paul Rogers are adorably simple and refreshing.  Below is the visual reading through his singing, page by page.   Enjoy.

Quote (Titanic 1997)

The other day I caught Titanic on TV and it was at the scene where Jack Dawson was dining with Rose's family.  When I heard this quote again, among all the other times I had seen this film, I was inspired to create this.   ...I do love this quote.

Do you have an inspirational quote that means something to you?  Let me know and I will create a poster like this one and feature it.
