Actually I don't remember being born, it must have happened during one of my black outs.
Jim Morrison   Category:

Blake said that the body was the soul's prison unless the five senses are fully developed and open. He considered the senses the 'windows of the soul.' When sex involves all the senses intensely, it can be like a mystical experence.
Jim Morrison   Category:

Death makes angels of us all and gives us wings where we had shoulders smooth as ravens claws.

Friends can help each other. A true friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself - and especially to feel. Or, not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at the moment is fine with them. That's what real love amounts to - letting a person be what he really is.
Jim Morrison   Category:

Hatred is a very underestimated emotion.
Jim Morrison   Category:

I am interested in anything about revolt, disorder, chaos-especially activity that seems to have no meaning. It seems to me to be the road toward freedom... Rather than starting inside, I start outside and reach the mental through the physical.
Jim Morrison   Category:

I believe in a long, prolonged, derangement of the senses in order to obtain the unknown.
Jim Morrison   Category:

I like any reaction I can get with my music. Just anything to get people to think. I mean if you can get a whole room full of drunk, stoned people to actually wake up and think, you're doing something.
Jim Morrison   Category:

I like people who shake other people up and make them feel uncomfortable.
Jim Morrison   Category:

I see myself as an intelligent, sensitive human, with the soul of a clown which forces me to blow it at the most important moments.
Jim Morrison   Category:

I think in art, but especially in films, people are trying to confirm their own existences.
Jim Morrison   Category:

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.
Jim Morrison   Category:

I'm interested in anything about revolt, disorder, chaos, especially activity that appears to have no meaning. It seems to me to be the road toward freedom.
Jim Morrison   Category:

If my poetry aims to achieve anything, it's to deliver people from the limited ways in which they see and feel.
Jim Morrison   Category:

It's like gambling somehow. You go out for a night of drinking and you don't know where your going to end up the next day. It could work out good or it could be disastrous. It's like the throw of the dice.
Jim Morrison   Category:

Listen, real poetry doesn't say anything; it just ticks off the possibilities. Opens all doors. You can walk through anyone that suits you.
Jim Morrison   Category:

Love cannot save you from your own fate.
Jim Morrison   Category:

Music inflames temperament.
Jim Morrison   Category:

People fear death even more than pain. It's strange that they fear death. Life hurts a lot more than death. At the point of death, the pain is over. Yeah, I guess it is a friend.
Jim Morrison   Category:

Sex is full of lies. The body tries to tell the truth. But, it's usually too battered with rules to be heard, and bound with pretenses so it can hardly move. We cripple ourselves with lies.
Jim Morrison   Category:

Some of the worst mistakes of my life have been haircuts.
Jim Morrison   Category:

The appeal of cinema lies in the fear of death.
Jim Morrison   Category:

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   Category:

The most loving parents and relatives commit murder with smiles on their faces. They force us to destroy the person we really are: a subtle kind of murder.
Jim Morrison   Category:

The time to hesitate is through.
Jim Morrison   Category:

There are things known and things unknown and in between are the doors.
Jim Morrison   Category:

This is the strangest life I've ever known.
Jim Morrison   Category:

Violence isn't always evil. What's evil is the infatuation with violence.
Jim Morrison   Category:

We fear violence less than our own feelings. Personal, private, solitary pain is more terrifying than what anyone else can inflict.
Jim Morrison   Category:

When you make your peace with authority, you become authority.
Jim Morrison   Category:

Where's your will to be weird?
Jim Morrison   Category:

Whoever controls the media, controls the mind.
