Film spectators are quiet vampires.

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

Let`s just say I was testing the bounds of reality. I was curious to see what would happen. That`s all it was: curiosity.

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.

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.

The appeal of cinema lies in the fear of death.

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.

A friend is someone who gives you the complete freedom to be yourself.

(Dinner Key Auditorium, 3/1/69, the infamous concert where he allegedly exposed himself) We are not talking about no revolution! I`m not talking about no demonstration! I`m talking about having some fun! I`m talking about dancing! I`m talking about love your neighbor `til it hurts! I`m talking about love! (...) This is your show, anything you want goes!

(Los Angeles, 1969) Let`s just say I was testing the bounds of reality. I was curious to see what would happen. That`s all it was: just curiosity.

Death is only going to happen to you once; I don`t want to miss it.

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

Hatred is a very underestimated emotion.

Some of the worst mistakes of my life have been haircuts.

Music is a pure expression of joy.

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.

This is the strangest life I`ve ever known.

Listen, real poetry doesn`t say anything; it just ticks off the possibilities. Opens all doors. You can walk through anyone that suits you.

I think the highest and lowest points are the important ones. Anything else is just...in between. I want the freedom to try everything.

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

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

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.

Film spectators are quiet vampires.

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

Actually I don`t remember being born, it must have happened during one of my black outs.
