Bob Dylan

“I think that this world is just a passing through place and that the dead have eyes and that even the unborn can see and I don’t care who knows it.” -- Bob Dylan

As an amateur Dylanologist, I'd appreciate the source for this quote, Gil.

This Dylan quote is from an interview that is included in the extensive liner notes of the 5 CD set called: Biograph.
Here are some of the words that precede and follow the quote as written here:
"When people don't get threatened and challenged, I mean in some kind of way, they don't get confronted, never have to make decisions, they never take a stand, they never grow, live their lives in a fishtank, stay in the same old scene forever, die and never get a break or a chance to say goodbye. I have views contrary to all that. I think that this world is just a passing through place and that the dead have eyes and that even the unborn can see and I don't care who knows it.
I don't know. I can go off on tangents..."
