    Some of my favorite quotes by one of my favorite people...

    "It's hard to get along with people. As much as you try to like them and accept them as individuals, it becomes difficult because they keep getting out of line and wasting your time."*

    "If you hate your parents, the man or the establishment, don't show them up by getting wasted and hitting your car into a tree. If you really hate your parents, out earn them, out live them and know more."

    "Want a good body? Work at it. Want to be a success? Work at it. Want to be truly exceptional? Be a touch insane...You need a little bit of insanity to do great things."

    "It'll destroy you if you try to make it mean anything to anyone but yourself."

    -Henry Rollins


    *I wish I could disagree with this one a bit more, but I can't. bleh

    "Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way round or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves."

    "Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend."

    “You must stop sometimes and have fun. There is so much fun to be had because our time can be so limited on the planet and I think real family and great memories and doing things with children are some of the most wonderful treasures. I have had some amazing good times. When I am sad I start reflecting on the good times to make me feel better. I do it in bed at night sometimes when I get down on my self. I put the most wonderful thought in my head, some wonderful experience and I feel a chemical reaction taking over in my body where I am actually there and I love that."

    "I get upset if some idiot, I mean worse than a Stooge, a complete idiot writes something stupid and so untrue and so unlike what happened at the event or something I was at. And I get so angry and I try not to be angry because I am hurting myself. And I start thinking about me flying through the air with the wind in my face. I do it in Africa. I go way up high and I’m so happy up there and I am flying. I think it is one of the most wonderful things I have discovered and I love it. It’s the freedom. It’s bliss. It’s quintessential bliss, I think. It’s the height of fun.”
    - Michael Jackson

    This is a great one. One that I should think about more when I get in a grumpy mood and tend to hate things.
