Today in Henry Rollins Quotes

“Why do you think the old stories tell of men who set out on great journeys to impress the gods? Because trying to impress people just isn’t worth the time and effort.”H. Rollins

Henry’s right of course. I think the journey of the artist is to try and create something that lasts beyond the petty criticism or passing favor of men.

Rollins’ is actually a firm believer in deadlifting too and I do that. Not because Henry does it (we’ve both been doing it for so long it’s hard to say who’s first) but because straining against a bar loaded with weights simplifies your perspective.

I’m getting off topic here but I can’t imagine Rollins trolling any other musicians or writers websites. He’s got shit to do.

And so do we.
