Here’s To The Crazy Ones
Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire. They push the human race forward.
Maybe they have to be crazy.
How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art? Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written? Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?
While some see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

I so admire Steve Jobs and all he did. Even though, I’m REALLY late to the party…just got my first iPod. But I must say, I’m nearly addicted to it. So sorry his life was cut short.
I particularly like his posthumous confession that of the 2 or 3 most significant things in his life, was the experience of ‘chemically induced theophany’–revelations creativity & selfdiscovery via entheogens/hallucinogens.
