How can I go forward when I don’t know which way I’m facing?
There’s nowhere you can be that isn’t where you’re meant to be…
You, you may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one.
I used to think that the world was doing something to me, that the world owed me something. And that either the conservatives or the socialists or the fascists or the communists or the Christians or the Jews or the fascists were doing something to me. And when you’re a teeny-booper, that’s what you think....
…Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink. I don’t know what will go first, rock ‘n’ roll or Christianity. We’re more popular than Jesus now. Jesus was all right, but his disciples were thick and ordinary. It’s them twisting it that ruins it for me.

As usual, there is a great woman behind every idiot.
When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.
Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives
I am a violent man who has learned not to be violent and regrets his violence.
Creativity is a gift. It doesn’t come through if the air is cluttered.
The basic thing nobody asks is why do people take drugs of any sort? Why do we have these accessories to normal living to live? I mean, is there something wrong with society that’s making us so pressurized, that we cannot live without guarding ourselves against it?
The more real you get the more unreal the world gets.
People like me are aware of their so-called genius at ten, eight, nine. . . . I always wondered, “Why has nobody discovered me?” In school, didn’t they see that I’m cleverer than anybody in this school? That the teachers are stupid, too?

I used to think it was mere homesickness, then I started getting it at home.

Life is very short, and there’s no time for fussing and fighting my friends
