"Think Different"

Think Differently

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 that 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 may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.
Because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can
change the world, are the ones who do.

Thanks to benjyfan over on the Idol boards. Forgot about this sweet poem that proved an immensely effective ad slogan for Apple computers.

This is for any and all of us that fit into the overly cliched realm known as 'Think Outside the Box', those of us who teeter on the edge of the sanity shelf, looking down into the abyss called crazy, those of us whose minds continuously flow with ideas and ideals.

It's a great morning inspiration. Now if I'd just figure how to turn it all into a fraction of what Steve Jobs has crafted monetarily this poor ol' starving wanna be artist would be content. Money is not the end all but it do buy you freedom. That's what's really important - and love and family.

Yes, here's to the crazy ones.

Groove on.
