In Honor Of Jim Morrison

Jim Morrison was the lead singer of iconic rock band “The Doors” and today marks the 43rd year of his death. Morrison’s death was a loss of one of the greatest poets and figures in rock music. Here are some of his best quotes and lyrics from his brief but very memorable time in the spotlight. 

 

1. Oh, tell me where your freedom lies, the streets are fields that never die. Deliver me from reasons why, you’d rather cry, I’d rather fly” – The Doors, The Crystal Ship

 

2. What have they done to the earth, what have they done to our fair sister? Ravaged and plundered and ripped her and bit her. Stuck her with knives in the side of the dawn and tied her with fences and dragged her down.” – The Doors, When the Music’s Over

 

3. “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

 

4. “Where’s your will to be weird?”– Jim Morrison

 

5. “This is the strangest life I’ve known.” – The Doors, Waiting For The Sun

 

6. “I am the lizard king, I can do anything.” – The Doors, Not To Touch The Earth

 

7. “Can you picture what will be, so limitless and free? Desperately in need of some stranger’s hand, in a desperate land.” – The Doors, The End

 

8. “Now, I’m gonna love you till the heavens stop the rain. I’m gonna love you till the stars fall from the sky for you and I.” – The Doors, Touch Me 

 

9. “The time to hesitate is through, no time to wallow in the mire Try now we can only lose & our love become a funeral pyre.” – The Doors, Light My Fire

 

10. “There are things known 
and there are things unknown
and in between are the doors.” – Jim Morrison

  1. Jim Morrison was an original. His music and poetry could leave you without breath but he burned out too quickly or maybe not … have you read ‘Poet in Exile’ by Ray Manzarek – organist for The Doors? Very interesting read.
