Number One: "Some of the worst mistakes in my life were haircuts."
Even though this sounds funny, maybe it’s more serious than that. Perhaps Jim Morrison could be more narcissistic than appeared to.
Number Two: "Where's your will to be weird?"
Probably one of Morrison's most famous quotes, this sentence defines very well Jim Morrison, and the fact that he loved to be different.
Number Three: "You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act…"
In this quote, Jim is explicitly calling out people for not being genuine. People trade “A walk on part in the war, For a lead role in a cage” ;)
Number Four: "The future is uncertain but the end is always near."
This quote can be interpreted as Jim’s thinking that he could not predict the future, but he was always close to death by living dangerously.
Number Five: "People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that's bulls–t…"
Maybe people are afraid of their emotions because they are in some way uncontrollable, emotions are powerful but scary.
Number Six: "Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free."
Freedom can be very scary. Freedom provokes existential angst, but for Jim Morrison, if you expose yourself to your most powerful fear, the fear goes away and then you are truly free.
