I am tapping into a place in you that is unexplored, and very dangerous, but I think essential to the creative life of an artist.— Brandon Boyd
The most massive Brandon Boyd quotes that may be undiscovered and unusual
I'll make music, whether or not anyone is listening, for the rest of my life.
It's a natural form of expression for me, the same way I draw and write and sing.
The world is a drought when out of love.
Insecurities are about as useful as trying to put the pin back in the grenade.
Some people fall in love and touch the sky.
Some people fall in love and find quicksand. I hover somewhere in between, I swear, I can't make up my mind.
I ain't affraid to let it out, i'm not affraid to take that fall, but i found beyond all doubt, you say more by saying nothing at all.
Don't let a grade decide your self-worth.
Personally, in my opinion, someone should gauge their self-worth on what they've accomplished that makes them feel good... not in the hedonist aspect, but in the sense of personal accomplishment, as far as what they've accomplished for them, as far as their self-development and creativity is concerned.
Britney Spears. Because she's a girl, I wouldn't smack her - I'd lock her in a closet with poisonous spiders or something. Let her think about what she's doing to the youth culture of America.
I think perhaps love thrives on unlikely circumstances and chance: life thrives on these principles, and is life not love? And love not life?
Unfortunately, the simplest things - such as thinking for myself, creating my own reality and being whatever the hell I want to be each day of my life - are a sin. To be a good Christian basically means to give up the reigns of your life and let some unseen force do it for you.
I attribute a scab to the present state of society.
The way the scab looks in its worst state is gross and chaotic and horrible, that's now, but when it breaks away, there's a brand new piece of skin that's stronger than before. It's like creation out of chaos.
I have always idolized eccentric people.
People, like large groups of people are stupid.
Individuals are smart and can deal with things and can make things last and work, but when people get together in big crowds they're stupid. They turn into sheep, then you have major situations.
All of us are heaven-sent, and there was never meant to be only one.
As a surfer, I am interested in the ocean.
And I am concerned and interested in all of these natural and cultural rumblings underfoot as well.
Music has to be written while people are still excited about a particular melodic or rhythmic sequence. The idea doesn't come out the same if we're not really excited about it.
Being an artist for my well being and as a living, I live in a place of observance and interest in what I consider to be the most relevant questions.
I haven't felt the way I feel today in so long.
That first plunge under the shore break on a chilly fall morning.
It forces a sound out of one's body that is kind of a whoo-ahhh! - shocking and refreshing all at once. You become acutely aware of your body and your surroundings, which is helpful when you're about to paddle out to sea.
Music has always been my back door to life.
It is important for people to find something that excites them. I like the concept that if you do what excites you, you will be rewarded generously, whatever form reward takes, which is not necessarily money.
I haven't had sex with many people in my life, and everyone just assumes that I'm good in bed!! I guess that's a compliment.
Too bad the things that make you mad are my favorite things.
the world is a rollercoaster, and i am not strapped i, maybe i should hold with care but my hands are busy in the air
I actually believe 'Sustainability ', as a concept, is one of the arteries leading to the heart of so many of our cultural transitions at play today. And it's this concept which leads me to bottled water, and its multibillion dollar industry.
Never underestimate a dumb question.
I think freedom of speech is important, but coupled with responsibility.
I follow a dairy-free and gluten-free diet, which can be challenging in some places.
Your music sounds better on the radio, for some reason.
It's an amazing feeling. I hope it never goes away.
Music is a lot more like solving an intricate puzzle with moments of pure, random creative bliss... whereas painting is much more purely random creative bliss with moments of problem solving.
You're always first when no one's on your side.
On a more human level, the closest things to truths that I have been able to access are Love, Art, and Play.
I get out on my bike almost every day. If I can't walk somewhere, I'll bike or skateboard.
Someone will inevitably find something wrong in almost everything, so do what it is that you do best and remember to have enough tolerance for two.
We are very fortunate to live in this country, but at the same time, the reason the forces are so much more destructive here is because they are faceless.
Pop is an easy way for evil business people to make a lot of money.
But I find myself humming a Christina Aguilera song every once in a while.
Art is everywhere, and everywhere is art.
Above our heads exists an infinity of unfathomable fantasiastics: and fields of future fireside fables trail close behind
No regrets. Never never any regrets. Everything has been an experience and has led to me now. Everything has been important and essential. Fear... I'm afraid of what people, including myself, are capable of, but it also excites me. I'm afraid of the atrocities that we are capable of and the things that can happen if everyone makes decisions based on fear.
Nothing is indeed "true."
I am here on Earth to express myself, and the many media of art are my magic carpets that allow me the freedom to do so.
It's great to want to be part of something, but it's a different thing completely to believe wholly in some type of movement, and to give everything for that something.
Shakira's music isn't my cup of tea, but the way she moves her hips reminds me of the feeling you get when you climb the gym pole.
There is no end in creativity. Hence, to strive towards an end result is a fool's errand. Set goals, make music and paint pictures, but know that the crux of your happiness balances delicately on the wings of the act of creativity itself. Not at the finish line.
