Sonny Rollins on paying the rent

From an interview with Sonny Rollins:

It's very encouraging to know that you have contributed to some ease of getting through life, that's a nice feeling. Music is about giving. People tell me, "Oh, gee, you've helped me go to work, do this, that." I feel better when I hear things like that. It's like I'm paying my rent here on Earth.
