You have to go on and be crazy. - Jimi Hendrix Quotes


I'm the one that has to die when it's time for me to die, so let me live my life, the way I want to.
Jimi Hendrix

I feel guilty when people say I'm the greatest on the scene. What's good or bad doesn't matter to me; what does matter is feeling and not feeling. If only people would take more of a true view and think in terms of feelings. Your name doesn't mean a damn, it's your talents and feelings that matter. You've got to know much more than just the technicalities of notes; you've got to know what goes between the notes.
Jimi Hendrix

You have to go on and be crazy. Craziness is like heaven.
Jimi Hendrix

Castles made of sand fall in the sea eventually.
Jimi Hendrix


Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.
Jimi Hendrix

When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will finally know peace.
Jimi Hendrix

You have to forget about what other people say; when you're supposed to die, when you're supposed to be lovin'. You have to forget about all these things. You have to go on and be crazy. Craziness is like heaven.
Jimi Hendrix

Blues is easy to play, but hard to feel.
