A quote from Johnny Depp

Something inspirational:

“If there’s any message to my work, it is ultimately that it’s OK to be different, that it’s good to be different, that we should question ourselves before we pass judgment on someone who looks different, behaves different, talks different, is a different color.”

  1. Very beautiful quote and what would the world be if we were all the same?

    I hope you and yours are well on this rainy Friday. There’s always going be bad days, but they pass.

    I’m just hoping this new operation is going to help your family get past this ordeal. Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. I love the quote too Anne.

      In a changing world I think it’s okay to be different and that should be encouraged. The world finds it hard to accept and embrace change and the fact that we are all different. It is my belief that it starts and ends with the individual.

      Thanks Anne, my family and I are all well. I have confidence things will be okay. I hope you have a lovely weekend too.

  2. I have learned to believe that different is good.

    It’s just a shame that society dictates that we are brought up NOT to be different but to fit in.

    1. You’re right society and families dictate their need for us to fit in. It’s something children are taught from an early age.

      I still believe that it’s up to the individual. We should accept it’s okay to be different even if society dictates otherwise.

  3. You’re both right. Being different and individual is a good thing on the one hand, but on the other hand they make it really hard to be different in today’s society because unfortunately it often makes you an outcast.

    I guess we just have to try to fit in to make life easier but try not to lose ourselves.

    1. I completely understand Anne, although I think differently about fitting in.

      I gave up trying to fit in a long time ago. I fit into my own life and tend to ignore what goes on around me. If others don’t accept me for who I am, they’re not worth being around.

      Being born and being different from the beginning has shown me a better way and of course my beliefs have helped. Thanks for your extra dialogue. Love that.

  4. I feel about as different as I could possibly be ,so that seems to be an appropriate statement for the day.

    I’m trying to learn how to not be so judgmental, which would help to improve my life. It’s very cool that he stated his views that way which includes all people as being the same in the end!

    1. I have to agree with you.

      I never realised myself that his acting was intention to prove to the world that we can be different. It reminds me of the role he played in Pirates of the Caribbean. A good example of how being different is and should be acceptable.
