Legendary Rocker Patti Smith Offers Advice To Young

At the Louisiana Literature Festival in August 2012, legendary artist and poet Patti Smith offers advice to a younger audience about the right ways to go about living life.

It is going to have perfect moments and rough spots, but it’s all worth it.”
