1 When all of your wishes are granted, many of your dreams will be destroyed
Explained so at the end of Man That You Fear.
Great quote, this is actually my senior quote for my yearbook at school, that's how much I love it
2 All the drugs in the world won't save us from ourselves
3 I wouldn't say a single word to them. I'd listen to what they had to say. And that's what no one did
This was just a great response. He is the best musician.
You had to mention that he was talking about the Columbine Massacre:
Interviewer - ''What would you say to the kids that committed the massacre (Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold)''
Marilyn Manson - ''I wouldn't say a single word to them. I'd listen to what they had to say. And that's what no one did''
4 Sometimes we admire the feathers and ignore the dying bird.
5 Enjoy your faults. That's what separates you from the rest of the world.
And that's what makes you special.
6 An artist at least creates things, puts things into the world. Whereas these other people are destroying things, taking things out of the world.
7 If they think that an artist can destroy their faith, then their faith is rather fragile
That is so true.
8 Music is the strongest form of magic
9 The idea of heaven is just Christianity's way of creating a hell on earth
That's just how it is too. He's one smart guy. That's one reason I love him so much. I also love his music.
10 I've always believed that a person is smart. It's people that are stupid
11 Part of me is afraid to get close to people because I'm afraid that they're going to leave
That happens to me a lot.
12 It's better to use a curse word than to hurt somebody else, I find
I believe this too.
13 A lot of people don't want to make their own decisions. They're too scared. It's much easier to be told what to do
14 I think that music is the only escape you know. You put on a record and it's not going to yell at you for dressing the way you do, it's going to make you feel better about it
15 If I were in a room full of people, I'd rather be the person who is more interesting than the one who is wallpaper
16 I am against religion because it teaches us to be satisfied with not understanding the world
I totally agree with this. I don't believe in religion either. Religion lacks a lot of logic and it stops people from thinking for themselves and understanding how the world really works. Marilyn Manson is one smart guy. This is one reason I idolize him. I also love his music. I have a lot of respect for him. I'll probably never get that chance, but I would love to meet him if I could.
I'm going to use this.
I agree with this one 👍
17 Those who move beyond the most blatant aspect of what I do, will then understand what I am trying to say
18 In any story, the villain is the catalyst. The hero's not a person who will bend the rules or show the cracks in his armor. He's one-dimensional intentionally, but the villain is the person who owns up to what he is and stands by it
19 The hero is never the star of the story
20 I never said to be like me, I say to be like you and make a difference
I am proud to be my own person. But I love Marilyn Manson too. He's a great musician as well as a great person and I idolize him. He definitely has my respect.
21 When you're taught to love everyone, to love your enemies, then what value does that place on love?
22 If people really stopped and realized how much art and creative people move the world versus politics and religion, I mean, it's not even up for debate
23 This is the culture you're raising your kids in. Don't be surprised if it blows up in your face
24 We live in a society of victimization, where people are much more comfortable being victimized than actually standing up for themselves
25 The imagination is precious. Don't lose it. Don't lose the child in you
Another quote I agree with. A person's imagination is one thing that makes a person unique and I myself have a vivid imagination. I'm in my early 20s but I'm still a teenager at heart and I live inside my head most of the time. I'm at peace when I'm in my own world.
