Quotes

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

Jim Morrison: Actually, I don't remember being born. It must have happened during one of my blackouts.

Ray Manzarek: I feel the universe functioning perfectly but I'm still perfectly locked inside myself. Instead of oneness, I feel isolation.

Jim Morrison: [quoted in Jim Morrison's film class project] Nietzsche said, "All great things must first wear terrifying and monstrous masks in order to inscribe themselves on the hearts of humanity."

[during their peyote trip in the desert]

Jim Morrison: Close your eyes. We'll see the snake; see the serpent appear. His head is ten feet long and five feet wide. He has one red eye and one green eye. He's seven miles long. Deadly. I see all the history of the world on his scales, all people, all actions. We're all just little pictures on his scales. God, he's big, he's moving, devouring consciousness, digesting power. Monster of energy. It's a monster. We're going to kiss the snake on the tongue. Kiss the serpent. But if it senses fear, it'll eat us instantly. But if we kiss it without fear, it'll take us through the garden, through the gate, to the other side. Ride the snake... until the end of time.
