I'm the Lizard Queen - Jim Morrison Quotes


      I have already acknowledged my obsession with Jim Morrison so this post really is to no surprise. I adore his music, poetry, voice and mindset as well as the fact that he died on the same date as I was born on, which made me think I was his reincarnated soul, what else. (Some of) you might find (some of) his quotes below (a bit) morbid, but you have to look at them through a (thick) haze of (about 40 % Vol.) whiskey vapors and with a pair of eyes doped up on (an abundance of) acid (among other things). It's really just a mellow, whimsical and easy going point of view. I love it.

  • I think the highest and the lowest points are the most important ones. Anything else is just in between.
  • Cancel my subscription to the resurrection.
  • There's nothing wrong with being a large mammal.
  • I wouldn't mind dying in a plane crash. It'd be a good way to go. I don't want to die in my sleep or of old age or OD. I want to feel what it's like. I want to taste it, hear it, smell it. Death is only going to happen to you once, I don't want to miss it.
  • Being drunk is a good disguise. I drink so I can talk to assholes. This includes me.
  • Some of the worst mistakes in my life have been haircuts.
  • Where's your will to be weird?
  • I think of myself as an intelligent, sensitive human being with a soul of a clown, which always forces me to blow it at the most important moments.
  • The future is uncertain but the end is always near.
  • I like people, who shake other people up and make them feel uncomfortable.
  • Actually, I don't remember being born, it must have happened during one of my blackouts.
  • People fear death even more than pain. It's strange that they fear death. Life hurts a lot more than death. At the point of death, the pain is over. Yeah, I guess it is a friend.
  • A friend is someone who gives you total freedom to be yourself.
  • There are things known and things unknown and in between there are doors.
  • I believe in a long, prolonged derangement of the senses in order to obtain the unknown.
  • The most loving parents and relatives commit murder with smiles on their faces. They force us to destroy the person we really are: a subtle kind of murder.
  • Violence isn't always evil. What's evil is the infatuation with violence.
  • This is the strangest life I've ever known.
  • No one gets out alive.
  • I'm the lizard king, I can do anything.
  • As the body is ravaged, the spirit grows stronger.

      Now, I don't think I'm his reincarnation anymore but I do have a slight hunch (more something along the lines of wishful thinking) that I'm a reincarnation of Cleopatra. Yes, Cleopatra. What?? The reality is that I was probably one of the dudes who were carrying her bed around or fanning her while she was giving Julius Caesar the royal treatment if anything but a girl can dream right...


I'm wearing:
Jeggings: Tally Weijl
Sweater: don't know, too old, it used to be my brother's
Jacket: Newyorker
Boots: eBay
Hat: Monster (thanks, Planet Octane ;))
Necklaces: the Celtic cross was a gift, the razor and dog tags are from eBay

      Don't forget to follow via Twitter and/or share. And if you haven't seen The Doors movie, please do. Posting day are Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays so hopefully you'll be back this Friday to see what's up.

  2. Jim Morrison was amazing! I watched this documentary on The Doors and learned a lot about him that I didn't know! Like the fact that he was a true poet at heart. Now, whenever I hear his songs the lyrics sound just like poetry!

  3. First off .. those boots are AWESOME!

    Second, I have to say that I'm not a Morrison fan, but I do admire his thoughts on death. "Death is only going to happen to you once, I don't want to miss it" is an incredible statement of a person who is free and without boundaries .. oh, to be this carefree in life.

  4. "I'm the Lizard King, I can do anything!!!!"
    I really, REALLY love this film!! I'm a big fan of Jim too. All abaut him is poetry =)
    Some people says he's nickname comes from something about iggy pop (the iguana)... but i'm still thinking its because of a poem he wrote.
    My boyfriend always says he's a Morrison reincarnation haha, that's why this posts is so funny for me.
    Apparently he looks like him a bit more than you... =)
    Nice to read you again!

  14. Your shoes <3

    I have never heard of this Jim guy you speak off. I sure like his quotes but I don't like how he seems so happy about deal. Well, it's not that I don't like it. It's that I don't understand it. I think knowing you are going to die must be the scariest feeling in the world. Oh no.

  20. "People fear death even more than pain. It's strange that they fear death. Life hurts a lot more than death. At the point of death, the pain is over" I like this point, this was the one I read twice.

    I'm going to have a little think about who I'd like to have been reincarnated as.......

    Hey 'miss no end to my skill' what language are you writing in to Ziga above?

    1. It's Slovene.:) It's my mother tongue. And Žiga said that he likes my hat and I said that I didn't even doubt that he'd like it. Since he's the one who gave it to me.:)

  29. Thanks for your comment dear - I'm really glad you like this idea of throwing everything together. And you know, after eating that I promise you won't be hungry any longer!

    "Being drunk is a good disguise. I drink so I can talk to assholes. This includes me. "

    Great quotation, I totally agree. Anyway, your style of writing sounds excellent. I really like it, so I just became the latest stalker of your blog. Would be nice if we stayed in touch :) Have a nice evening, dear <3

  33. I love your eye-makeup and your hair. You look great in your Jeggings and Monster hat from Planet Octane. I hadn't known Slovene was your mother tongue (or maybe I forgot - I'm old and may be getting senile). I remember The Doors well. I remember hearing a song with the lyrics "Your lost little girl" and liking the instrumental part - Jim Morrison's lyrics gave me the chills sometimes. I no longer drink but I remember needing to be drunk to think I was understanding other assholes, still am one, and still have the will to be weird. :)
