"These are the good kind of mushrooms."
I will be dead in five years' time, but while I am here, I will travel many highways and I will, of necessity, die at a time when my message of love, peace, and freedom can be shared with people all over the world.

Once you're dead, you're made for life.
-Jimi Hendrix

"Try things then clean up after yourself. Then try some more things and clean that up too."
-Bill Nye
First of all, the word superstar really turns me off -- and I'll tell you why. The word "star" man, it's an illusion. it's something what the public calls you. You should look upon oneself as an actor, man. I mean you would be very pleased if somebody said (punches his fist into his open hand) "man, you are a super actor!" it is much better than, you know, superstar.
-Bruce Lee
