Quotes by Jim Morrison

A friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself.
– Jim Morrison

Drugs are a bet with the mind.
– Jim Morrison

People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that’s bullsh*t. 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.
– Jim Morrison

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

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.
– Jim Morrison

The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can’t be any large- scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.
– Jim Morrison

You feel your strength in the experience of pain.
– Jim Morrison

No eternal reward will forgive us now for wasting the dawn.
– Jim Morrison

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

No one here gets out alive.
– Jim Morrison

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

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

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

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

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