I think Johnny Depp has a lot of good quotes he has been quoted on.
“If someone were to harm my family or a friend or somebody I love, I would eat them. I might end up in jail for 500 years, but I would eat them.”
I identify with this quote completely. I don’t think I’d literally eat somebody since cannibalism isn’t something I am in to, but it definitely gets me riled up where I want to at least destroy a wall.
“My body is my journal, and my tattoos are my story.”
I identify with the first half of this quote but the second part is where I differ. To me tattoos are too painful to pursue, but I love writing things on myself. It comes off and in a couple of days I get to write something new. It’s also a reminder to get my butt in the shower if something is still on my skin after several days.
“We’re all damaged in our own way. Nobody’s perfect. I think we’re all somewhat screwy. Every single one of us.”
Oh thank you dear Johnny. This is so true. Some people try to paint me as a perfect person, which isn’t true. The people who really matter to me know that I’m flawed but they accept me anyway which I greatly appreciate.
“There are four questions of value in life… What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living “for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is same. Only love.”
I completely identify with this view on life. I believe that the kind of love worth living for is not just the romantic type where you concentrate on just finding your soul mate, it is also the kind of love that gives you patience to see past the flaws in the people that you love most.
“Music touches us emotionally, where words alone can’t.”
That is so true. Music brings people together in ways that are incredible. Great example of this is concerts. Think about how everybody gathers together just to enjoy an artist’s work. Think of how people bond together by how much they enjoy an artist’s music. Think of how people put so much identity in the music they listen to.
“If there’s any message, it is ultimately that it’s okay to be different; that it’s good to be different, that we should question ourselves before we pass judgment on someone who looks different, behaves different, talks different, is a different color.”
This is very very very true. Getting to know people who are different than you helps with the judgement part. Once you see the people behind the differences than it makes it all so much more real and love can come in and take over.
“I am doing things that are true to me. The only thing I have a problem with is being labeled.”
This warms my heart. Labels are so overrated. It leaves people searching for identity and trying to box themselves into things.
“if you love two people at the same time, choose the second. Because if you really loved the first one, you wouldn’t have fallen for the second.”
Just something to think about it… This helps me feel that I’ve done the right thing.
