  • Any darn fool can make something complex; it takes a genius to make something simple.
  • My father, Charles Seeger, got me into the Communist movement. He backed out around '38. I drifted out in the 50's. I apologize [in his recent book] for following the party line so slavishly, for not seeing that Stalin was a supremely cruel misleader.
    • This is from the same "The Old Left" interview quoted twice in the article. I think this plain statement is not nearly as quoteworthy as the other two. Perhaps something from the actual book he refers to would be better? ~ Ningauble 17:53, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
  • Do you know the difference between education and experience? Education is what you get when you read the fine print; experience is what you get when you don't.
  • Sir, I refuse to answer that question whether it is a quote from the New York Times or the Vegetarian Journal. ... I decline to discuss, under compulsion, where I have sung, and who has sung my songs, and who else has sung with me, and the people I have known. I love my country very dearly, and I greatly resent this implication that some of the places that I have sung and some of the people that I have known, and some of my opinions, whether they are religious or philosophical, or I might be a vegetarian, make me any less of an American.
    • Response when asked, before the House Committee on Un-American Activities, whether a performance of his had been advertised in the Daily Worker
