Certainly there's a huge appeal to the '60s, because it was such a big turning point to everyone. It was the era of change, the boiling point.

When I was in the California legislature in the '80s, the organic growers, who were sort of the small hippie farmers in those days, brought it to my attention that there were no regulations on organic labeling.

The hippie movement politicized my generation. When it ended, we all started looking back at our own history, looking, in my case, for motives of rebellion. -Vivienne Westwood

My dad was an immigrant kid and a Democrat and a Jew, and we didn't know any Republicans in our group. So I grew up Democratic. My dad was a labor lawyer – a very hardworking guy, a one-horse labor lawyer – and then I went to hippie college and lived in the bubble. -David Mamet

In my house every Sunday, everybody was cleaning the house. There was always music, and everybody was dancing, sometimes naked, around the house. Not hippie, but very free. -Penelope Cruz

Our most fundamental social need, it turns out, to my amazement, is love. Now, I'm not a hippie-dippie whatever. If you look at the literature, our most fundamental need for children is an environment of maximum love, and that they can be hugged, kissed, and loved. That's what humanises us and allows us to realise our whole dimension. -David Suzuki

Though it's frequently portrayed as this crazy, unbridled festival of rain-soaked, stoned hippies dancing in the mud, Woodstock was obviously much more than that – or we wouldn't still be talking about it in 2009. People of all ages and colors came together in the fields of Max Yasgur's farm. -Richie Havens

For me and my entire generation, we took on this kind of sarcastic, ironic, snarkiness because it seemed the most extreme reaction to the earnestness of hippies. -Chuck Palahniuk

Minimalism? It is something I appreciate as an art form but leave to others – unless you count a collection of warhorse-workwear Yves Saint Laurent trouser suits.

My father moved out to Park City in in the mid-'70s and lived in a Winnebago behind a hippie joint called Utah Coal & Lumber that was one of only two or three restaurants at that time. Park City was a sleepy little mining town, with not a condo in sight. -Ira Sachs

Growing up, I was a little hippie kid. I went to some good concerts… Amnesty International with Bob Dylan and Tracy Chapman… The best concert I ever went to was this one at the Cow Palace my freshman year in college on New Year's Eve. It was Pearl Jam opening for Nirvana opening for Red Hot Chili Peppers. -Summer Sanders

As I got into my teens, I started reading better books, beginning with the Beats and then the hippie writers, people like Wallace Stegner up in Northern California, and all the political New Journalism stuff, the Boys on the Bus dudes and Ken Kesey. -Stephen Gaghan

Before 'Veronica Mars,' I was not, and probably am still not, much of a crime reader. My mom left out a copy of 'Helter Skelter' when I was 10, and I secretly read it, and then I spent all my teenage years afraid of hippies. I kept away from crime books for, like, ten years. -Rob Thomas

I was a total floral hippie as a child so when I finally could make my own choices, I've been living in different black suit jackets and been really drawn to masculine clothes. -Lykke Li

There's a latter-day notion that artsy hippie types in the 1960s disdained the space program. Not in my experience they didn't. We watched, transfixed with reverence, not even making rude remarks about President Nixon during his phone call to the astronauts. -Patrick Nielsen Hayden

I used to say, 'Mad' takes on both sides.' We even used to rake the hippies over the coals. They were protesting the Vietnam War, but we took aspects of their culture and had fun with it. 'Mad' was wide open. -Al Feldstein

As anyone who has covered the company for any length of time knows, Yahoo's record on major decision-making has been akin to a hippie commune – a lot of wrangling internally in a culture where everyone seems to have a voice and a reticence to push the button to launch. -Kara Swisher

It's hard to talk about it without sounding like a hippie. But trees are really inspiring to me. They're like the masters of the earth. -King Tuff

I had hippie parents, and I found it difficult to figure out how to rebel against them. -Stewart Butterfield

For the first five years of my life, I grew up in a log cabin in coastal British Columbia in a very small town, like 300 people, mostly hippies. No running water, no electricity. When I was 12, I changed my name from Dharma to Stewart. At that age, you just want to be normal. -Stewart Butterfield

Now I'm old… maybe I'm still an eccentric hippie. There's a wonderful freedom in the eccentricity – you can go places, you can be wacky, and you don't have to be constrained. I think that's why people are eccentric – eccentricity is a weapon… and it's great! -Sylvester McCoy

Ever since Willie Nelson brought rednecks into an alliance with hippies back in the psychedelic '70s, Austin has milked its quirky libertarian spirit for a worldwide bonanza of free publicity. -Douglas Brinkley

My whole life has been a very communal experience; growing up in a house full of happy hippies, having dinner parties three days a week, and going to Christiania, I was constantly surrounded by people celebrating community. If you look at the films I've done, they all share that theme. -Thomas Vinterberg

I'm not very good at business. I'm more of a creative, fun-loving hippie type. -Rebecca Ferguson

I do a lot of visualisations and meditation and a lot of hippie stuff. -Rachel Platten

I didn't start thinking about what I wanted to do professionally until I was 17. I was a hippie, but I did write. -Mary Gaitskill

I was raised vegan. My mom would always make quinoa with squash and kale, hippie stuff like that. Now I eat meat, but I try to be conscious about where it's coming from. -Zoe Kravitz

I was born in a little town called Lund in British Columbia. It's like a fishing village. My parents were hippies.

Then we moved to the city, Victoria, British Columbia, so I could go to school. -Stewart Butterfield

My mum, she has a very specific way of mixing bourgeois and hippie. She doesn't wear a lot of make-up, but she always has to wear glasses, and she has this huge collection of glasses. And no rules. -Mariacarla Boscono

In the Sixties, there were no guidebooks to Asia, at least none that suited young shoestring travelers. No one on the hippie highway carried a copy of Fodor's 'Islamic Asia.' The route to spiritual enlightenment wasn't revealed in the pages of the latest Baedeker. Intrepids were on a journey of spontaneity and reinvention. -Rory MacLean

My parents were hippies. -Rachel Kushner

I heard opera all day long. From the time I was 9 years old, I was imitating the singers; later I studied opera. But we also got Western television and radio, from the Americans in West Berlin. When I was 11 years old, I turned into a hippie and gave flowers to policemen. And when I was 21 and left Berlin for London, I became a punk. -Nina Hagen

I went from being a jock to a hippie. It was a very clear-cut decision. I had to be one or the other. I had to forsake that other aspect of myself. Or thought that I had to, which is regrettable. Quickly, I was back in the pine trees with the hippies, listening to my Jimi Hendrix and my Janis Joplin and turning on, tuning in, and dropping out. -J. K. Simmons

I get emotionally spent answering questions about my dead father and my criminal friends and my upbringing in a hippie environment in a marginalized community. -Lukas Forchhammer

I'm flowing and letting things happen as they happen. I want to be living out of suitcases on the road. I'm open to the universe, whatever comes my way. I feel like a hippie – but hey, it works. -Sasha Lane

I'll do anything that sparks me. Sometimes I'll want to do something random with ballet, and then I'll want to be a hippie caterpillar in an animation film. Who knows what will come my way, but I'm going to try and put little hints into the universe, and hopefully they'll float on by. -Sasha Lane

I think Edie Sedgwick comes back, too. Every five or six years, there is always something about Edie, because she was so modern and stylish and elegant and hippie-ish, all at the same time. So I think that people will always love her. -Francois Nars

I was pretty much a hippie. I was a vegetarian, gypsy-like. I liked to meditate, and it's curious because I was very much attracted to the possibility of change. -Laura Esquivel

I wear a lot of dresses and skirts and more ethereal hippie clothes for the day. -Jenna Dewan

My dad discouraged me and my older sister watching too much TV. I don't want to portray them as crazy hippies, but I definitely feel like I was influenced by their creativity. But did I want to have an acting career myself? I didn't think so. I think my goal really was to direct. I really wanted to make stories in that capacity. -Georgia King

The Rolling Stones are much more accomplished than Jefferson Airplane, who are more like tribal people. That is, they present something which exists: The music and the hippie. -Jean-Luc Godard

For a while, I tried to masquerade as somewhat of a hippie because I was under the impression that was the kind of guy girls would like. I was pretty unsuccessful because I liked the idea of camping more than actually camping. I did go to a Grateful Dead concert, but I was pretty bored. -Paul Rudd

The fact that we were encouraged to follow our conscience and not to follow the crowds – that's something I really miss. On the other hand, there were things that drove me nuts in the '60s. There was an aspect of the hippie movement that everyone is an artist, which is lethal. -Robert Picardo

My family were pretty big hippies. -Sam Heughan

1968 was the beginning of the hippie movement in fashion. That movement made fashion change completely. It was not necessary to be always dressed up. You could be dressed the way you wanted – it was absolute freedom. -Sonia Rykiel

Jacksonville back in the 1960s was kind of a redneck town. There were only two or three places where you could play our kind of hard rock – or 'hippie music' as it was called back then. You had to go to Georgia or some place else. -Gary Rossington

Typically, people think, 'Oh the hippies and the punks hated each other,' or that those things don't go together musically. Sometimes that is true, but we had equal parts of both in our musical DNA. -Bryce Dessner

The way I grew up, I had hippie parents, and we would run around the garden with no shoes on, very close to nature. So I never wore little princess dresses. I still have this feeling whenever I wear a very formal dress; I always have this slight fear that people will point their fingers at me and laugh: 'Vicky is trying to look like a lady.' -Vicky Krieps

Andy was not a hippie or rebel but more like a mischievous child. He was never out to destroy everything. He became a New Yorker, and New Yorkers know, like the media, what's going on around them is a fashion thing that will change to something else. -Paul Morrissey

My dad's a hero in a lot of ways. He was a 1960s and 1970s hippie and a member of the protest crowd. -Jake Tapper

I learned most of what I knew about online communities on The Well, and it was a good place to learn.

I can't decide if I'm a hippie or elegant older woman, a farmer's wife, a crazy person. -Elizabeth Berg

I think there's a weapon of cynicism to say, 'Protest doesn't work. Organizing doesn't work. Y'all are a bunch of hippies. You know, it doesn't do anything,' because, frankly, it's said out of fear, because it is a potent force for political change. -Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

The Southern California arena rock, hair metal, laidback hippie garden culture – for many growing up in the '70s and '80s, none of it made us who we were like Lou Reed did. -Alissa Quart

I'm a hippie child of the '60s. What drives me crazy about mass media entertainment is that it's so often devoid of any ideas. -James Lapine

Many of the ex-hippies who started companies like Apple, or the early online bulletin boards dedicated to organic food and following the Grateful Dead, were an odd combination of liberals and libertarians. -Glenn Kelman

When I was 13 and looking for my identity, I was obsessed with hippies. -Kerli

I'm a modern-day hippie. -Raheem DeVaughn

My parents were/are straight-edge hippies. Mom roamed around gardening so we would have fresh food, and Dad was on wood-chopping duty to heat our passive solar home that they figured out how to design and build together. I was the kid with green peppers in my lunch, and I liked them! -Tara Stiles

I wanted to be an undercover cop, blending in with the public, looking like a black militant or a long-haired hippie yet having a gun on my hip, a badge in my wallet, and able to enforce the law. To me, that was the neatest thing in the world. It was also challenging. -Ron Stallworth

The hippie era was a wonderful time because we still believed we could make the world a better place. -Lemmy

I've always been like a black hippie. -Tech N9ne

I'm obviously very hippie-like, and I'm always in a different city and town and country, and I thought, 'Why is it that the big food chains are always so promoted? I want the whole ingredients. I don't want preservatives. I want what this town and these farmers produce and see how their chefs create.' -Brie Bella
