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."
David Bowie // "It’s a compulsive need to wreck everything. You might notice there’s a pattern of stripping down and building back up again throughout my life. I guess that’s how some of us conduct our lives."
Anais Nin // "We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations."
Neil Gaiman // "I've been making a list of the things they don't teach you at school. They don't teach you how to love somebody. They don't teach you how to be famous. They don't teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don't teach you how to walk away from someone you don't love any longer. They don't teach you how to know what's going on in someone else's mind. They don't teach you what to say to someone who's dying. They don't teach you anything worth knowing."
James Brown // "My expectations of other people...I double them on myself."
