Here's To The Crazy Ones

Here's to the crazy ones.
  The misfits.
    The rebels.
      The troublemakers.
        The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things differently.
They're not fond of rules.
     And they have no respect for the status quo.

You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them,
     disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can't do is ignore them.
      Because they change things.

They invent.    They imagine.    They heal.
  They explore.    They create.    They inspire.
    They push the human race forward.

Maybe they have to be crazy.
How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art?
Or sit in silence and hear a song that's never been written?
Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?

We make tools for these kinds of people.

While some see them as the crazy ones,
   we see genius.

Because the people who are crazy enough to think
they can change the world, are the ones who do.- Apple Computers 

This has to be one of my favorite quotes. It is inspiring to all people who want to make a difference or do not feel like they fit in with the typical 9-5 society. I have always felt like I relate to this quote, because just like Kurt Vonnegut stated, " the most interesting people I know did not know what they wanted to do at 22, some of the most interesting 40-yr-olds still don't" It is the creative, intelligent, bold, dare to be different people who make the changes in this world. Did Ghandi, Martin Luther King Jr, Rosa Parks, Nelson Mandela, all believe they would be making the difference they did in society when they dared to be different? They seemed crazy, they were extremists, but it is those extremist and those crazy people who leave their mark on this world, and that is what life is really all about isn't it? Leave a mark, a positive piece of you for history to remember and to learn from, or else you are going to be someone who just passes by and no one wants that.
