At the end of the day, all you can hope for is to go on. The older I get, the more I realize that just keeping on keeping on is what life's all about.
Janis Ian

The best thing you can learn from the worst times of your life is that it always gets better. It may take a month, a year, a decade, but it will get better if you leave yourself open to it.
Janis Ian

Once you're halfway home, you know that you can probably get the rest of the way there.
Janis Ian

I learned the truth at seventeen, That love was meant for beauty queens, And high school girls with clear skinned smiles, Who married young and then retired.
Janis Ian

A radio show recently did a beautiful eulogy of me.

She is 62 and those words are from her famous song "17". She has won some Grammys including for that song and other awards. Many have covered her songs and some have called her the female Bob Dylan. Wrote her first top twenty hit at 13 years old, fabulous voice.
