Still I Rise
“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask.” – Jim Morrison, singer, poet, and songwriter (1943-1971)
I think of myself as an intelligent, sensitive human being with the soul of a clown which always forces me to blow it at the most important moments.
There are things known and things unknown and in between are the doors.
A friend is someone who gives you total freedom to be yourself.
I believe in a long, prolonged, derangement of the senses in order to obtain the unknown.
Drugs are a bet with your mind.
Where’s your will to be weird?
Some of the worst mistakes of my life have been haircuts.
Death makes angels of us all and gives us wings where we had shoulders smooth as ravens claws.
Whoever controls the media, controls the mind.
Angelic help is the Divine right and privilege of everyone. Doreen Virtue, PH.D.
