Jim Morrison Quote
“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.”
From the article "Jim Morrison: Ten Years Gone" by Lizze James - Creem Magazine, 1981. The interview published in the article was originally recorded in 1969.
“Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.”

Quote of the day
“We sacrifice to dress, till household joys And comforts cease. Dress drains our cellar dry, And keeps our larder clean; puts out our fires, And introduces hunger, frost and woe, Where peace and hospitality might reign. Dress changes the manners.”
