Leonard Cohen speech.

Leonard Cohen delivers a fine speech upon the acceptance of his Prince of Asturias award. [via YouTube]

Transcribed excerpt from the first comment:

“Poetry comes from a place that no one commands, that no one conquers. So I feel somewhat like a charlatan to accept an award for an activity which I do not command. In other words, if I knew where the good songs came from I would go there more often.”
