Tennessee Williams // "There is a time for departure even when there’s no certain place to go."
Björk // "The United Nations asked people from all over the world a series of questions. Iceland stuck out on one thing. When we were asked what we believe, 90% said 'ourselves.' I think I'm in that group."
Charles Bukowski // "For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can't readily accept the God formula, the big answers don't remain stone-written. We adjust to new conditions and discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command...I am my own god. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us. We are here to read these words from all these wise men and women who will tell us that we are here for different reasons and the same reason."
Matthew McConaughey // "All the things you thought were periods, they turn out to be commas. There was never a full stop to any of it."
Jack Kerouac // "Because in the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain."
Janis Joplin // "If you've got a today, don't wait until tomorrow. Tomorrow never happens. It's all the same day."
Christopher Walken // "I have this theory about words. There's a thousand ways to say 'Pass the salt.' It could mean...'Can I have some salt?' Or it could mean, 'I love you.' It could mean, 'I'm very annoyed with you.' Really, the list could go on and on. Words are little bombs, and they have a lot of energy inside them."
Bruce Lee // "If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them."
Tupac Shakur // "A lot of people...have a problem being true to themselves. They have a problem looking into the mirror and looking directly into their own souls. The reason I can...walk around, the reason I am who I am today is because I can look directly into my face and find my soul."
