Famous Jim Morrison Quotes On Life

Enjoy the best of Jim Morrison quotes. Famous Quotes by Jim Morrison, Musician.

Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.

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.

People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that’s bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they’re afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they’re wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It’s all in how you carry it. That’s what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you’re letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel your pain.

I’ve noticed that when people are joking they’re usually dead serious, and when they’re serious, they’re usually pretty funny.

I think the highest and lowest points are the important ones. Anything else is just…in between.

Some of the worst mistakes in my life were haircuts.

Is everybody in? Is everybody in? Is everybody in? The ceremony is about to begin. The entertainment for this evening is not new, you’ve seen this entertainment through and through you have seen your birth, your life, your death….you may recall all the rest. Did you have a good world when you died? -enough to base a movie on?? Jim Morrison Quotes from American Prayer

Where’s your will to be weird?

People are strange.

Whoever controls the media, controls the mind.

Time to live, time to lie, time to laugh, and time to die. Take it easy baby. Take it as it comes.

Jim Morrison Death Quotes

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.

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

The appeal of cinema lies in the fear of death.

When others demand that we become the people they want us to be, they force us to destroy the person we really are. It’s a subtle kind of murder … the most loving parents and relatives commit this murder with smiles on their faces.

I see myself as a huge fiery comet, a shooting star. Everyone stops, points up and gasps “Oh look at that!” Then- whoosh, and I’m gone…and they’ll never see anything like it ever again… and they won’t be able to forget me- ever.

I am troubled, immeasurably
by your eyes.
I am struck by the feather
of your soft reply.
The sound of glass
speaks quick, disdain
and conceals
what your eyes fight
to explain.
Jim Morrison Quote from Wilderness

Music inflames temperament.

Where’s your will to be weird?

Drugs are a bet with your mind.

Film spectators are quiet vampires.

Love cannot save you from your own fate.

Hatred is a very underestimated emotion.

This is the strangest life I’ve ever known.

Jim Morrison Love Quotes

Continue reading these Famous Jim Morrison Love Quotes

A friend is someone who gives you total freedom to be yourself-and especially to feel, or not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at any moment is fine with them. That’s what real love amounts to – letting a person be what he really is. Most people love you for who you pretend to be. To keep their love, you keep pretending – performing. You get to love your pretense. It’s true, we’re locked in an image, an act – and the sad thing is, people get so used to their image, they grow attached to their masks. They love their chains. They forget all about who they really are. And if you try to remind them, they hate you for it, they feel like you’re trying to steal their most precious possession.

When you make your peace with authority, you become authority.

There are things known and things unknown and in between are the doors.

There are things known
and there are things unknown
and in between are the doors
Jim Morrison Quote from Letters From Joe

Violence isn’t always evil. What’s evil is the infatuation with violence.

I like people who shake other people up and make them feel uncomfortable.

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

Actually I don’t remember being born, it must have happened during one of my black outs.

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

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

Do you know we are being led to
Slaughters by placid admirals

& that fat slow generals are getting
Obscene on young blood

Do you know we are ruled by t.v.
Jim Morrison Quotes from American Prayer

Each generation wants new symbols, new people, new names. They want to divorce themselves from their predecessors.

Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.

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.

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.

Our society places a supreme value on control — hiding what you feel. Our culture mocks “primitive cultures” and prides itself on suppression of natural instincts and impulses.

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.

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.

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 experience.

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.

Listen, real poetry doesn’t say anything; it just ticks off the possibilities. Opens all doors. You can walk through any one that suits you.

If my poetry aims to achieve anything, it’s to deliver people from the limited ways in which they see and feel.
