„He's a pinboy. He also wears suspenders. He's a real person. You know him, but not by that name… I saw him come into the room one night and he looked like a camel. He proceeded to put his eyes in his pocket. I asked this guy who he was and he said, "That's Mr. Jones." Then I asked this cat, "Doesn't he do anything but put his eyes in his pocket?" And he told me, "He puts his nose on the ground."“

—  Bob Dylan

It's all there, it's a true story.
When asked about the meaning of the song "Ballad of a Thin Man" during a 1965 interview.

„And there we have my good rabbi.... he came up so tired in the studio, and then I put him down here. There was such a real seat in that guy, so with his pants slumped. That's nice, isn't it, that long black cloak with those wide folds and that slackly beer mat. He is holding the Torah role in his arm, do you see?... I known that old rab for a lot of years already, and with Purim and Rosh HaShanah [Jewish New Year] he comes faithfully around for his douceur [tip].“

—  Jozef Israëls Dutch painter 1824 - 1911

translation from the original Dutch: Fons Heijnsbroek
version in Dutch (citaat van Jozef Israëls, in het Nederlands): En dan heb je daar m'n goeie rebbe.. ..Hij kwam zo moe-gesjouwd 't atelier op, en toen heb ik hem hier neergezet. Daar zat zo'n echte zit in, in dien kerel, zoo met zoo'n uitgezakte broek.. .Da's mooi, nie-waar, die lange zwarte mantel met die wijde plooien en dat slappe viltje op.. .Hij heeft 't Seifer [de Tora-rol] in z'n arm, zie je wel?. ..Dien ouwe ribbe ken ik toch al wat 'n jaren, en met Poerim en Rausj Hasjoe [Joodse Nieuwjaar] komt ie trouw om z'n douceurtje.
Quote by Israëls, Jan. 1904, as cited in Jozef Israels, W.L. Brusse, 1905, pp. 135-136
