13 Jim Morrison quotes that will make you look at life differently

morrison quotes

Jim Morrison is without a doubt one of music’s most enduring stars. Poet, rock god and controversial bad boy, he was also a man who in his 27 short years philosophized greatly on life, love and the universe. Surprisingly, at the beginning of his career, he was an incredibly reserved stage performer who often sang with his back to the crowd. Yet by the end so powerful were his performances that more than once they led to riots. This passion can be seen in his lyrics, his poetry and his musings. To celebrate that lust for life, here are 13 Jim Morrison quotes that’ll make you look at your own life differently.

We think these Jim Morrison quotes show that Mr. Mojo Risin’ was as much as a philosopher as a rock star and he wasn’t alone. Take these John Lennon quotes, the words of another amazingly worldly-wise musician taken from us far too soon. But what others deserve to be celebrated here? Let us know in the comments below.

  1. Who controls the media control your mind hits the nail on the head. Although sounds like something from 1984 not the doors

  2. Some interesting thoughts but I always wonder with Morrison whether he was wise or pretentious? He was only a kid after all

      • he certainly was extremely pretentious at times. only an arrested case of adolescence would think otherwise. but he also had a great vocal ans a lot of lyrical noteworthiness.

    • Who controls the media controls your mind. So true! Let’s see how many times we had people copy cat movies with crime, or how we waist our precious time and money on shitty movies, while we make Hollyweird rich what a waist of our hard earned money.

      There should be rules in making movies and showing crimes, in many countries they show a knife and blood but no cutting humans flesh, or the story has to make sense. In general people should get permit to make films.

  3. Yeah. I’ve been a lifelong Doors fan. Introduced to the Doors at 14 and I’m 38 now so….quarter century of listening to Jim and the gang..and reading all his works to say that quote number 3 ( the really long one ) , ” give up defining yourself- to yourself or others….” Is ABSOLUTELY not a Morrison quote. It was written by Eckhart Tolle in ( I believe ) the 90’s, maybe 2000’s. Point is, do you’re fucking research bro. There are a million awesome things the lizard King actually said- so give credit where credit is due and don’t where it’s not. C’mon man.

    • So funny. I was thinking the same thing. Also, how ironic, I am 38, and was also introduced to them around 14, have all the albums, read every book, and I too know, this was not a Jim quote.
