5 Great Carlos Santana quotes

July 20, 2016

Happy 69th birthday Carlos Santana!

In addition to being a guitar genius, Santana is a very spiritual man. Here are a few of my favorite quotes.

"Happiness is not a destination or an experience. It's a decision."

"Some songs are just like tattoos for your brain... you hear them and they're affixed to you."

“Your wrinkles either show that you're nasty, cranky, and senile, or that you're always smiling.”

"Laughter can be a very spiritual thing. If you ask me, I think getting in a good, gut-busting round of laughter is worth more than a month of meditating."

"Love does away with distance and separation. Love turns all the flags of the world into a river of colors."

Enjoy this performance at Woodstock in 1969, when Carlos was barely 22 years old!
