Some quotes from Jim Morrison's pages:
1. Actually I don't remember being born, it must have happened during one of my black outs.
2. 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.
3. Death makes angels of us all and gives us wings where we had shoulders smooth as ravens claws.
4. Each generation wants new symbols, new people, new names. They want to divorce themselves from their predecessors.
5. Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.
6. 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.
7. Hatred is a very underestimated emotion.
8. 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.
9. I believe in a long, prolonged, derangement of the senses in order to obtain the unknown.
10. 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.
11. If my poetry aims to achieve anything, it's to deliver people from the limited ways in which they see and feel.
12. 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.
13. Love cannot save you from your own fate.
14. 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.
15. Some of the worst mistakes of my life have been haircuts.
16. 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.
17. 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.
18. Violence isn't always evil. What's evil is the infatuation with violence. We fear violence less than our own feelings.
19. Personal, private, solitary pain is more terrifying than what anyone else can inflict.
20. When you make your peace with authority, you become authority.
