Legendary folk singer and social activist Pete Seeger has passed away at the age of 94, but his songs and words will live on.
Best known for eco-folk ballads such as "Where Have All the Flowers Gone" and "Turn! Turn! Turn! (To Everything There Is a Season)", Seeger became somewhat of a spiritual icon throughout his career, often noted by the pacifist and contemplative themes of his songs.
In an interview with Beliefnet, Seeger once said:
I feel most spiritual when I’m out in the woods. I feel part of nature. Or looking up at the stars. [I used to say] I was an atheist. Now I say, it’s all according to your definition of God. According to my definition of God, I’m not an atheist. Because I think God is everything. Whenever I open my eyes I’m looking at God. Whenever I’m listening to something I’m listening to God.
Here are some of Seeger's most spiritual quotes and songs:
