The Brilliance of Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp

Generally, I am not one to ogle at celebrities, but Johnny Depp is the exception to my rule.

No, I’m not obsessed with pirates (in a bad way). No, I don’t have a man crush (yeah, I do). I just honestly think the guy is brilliant. I’m not just talking about his acting, either – the guy really is pretty smart. Most of all I really like 2 things about Johnny Depp: 1. He is totally selfless and does a ton of charity work 2. He has an awesome outlook on life, and people.

Here are 23 of my favorite Depp quotes on being yourself, loving life, and loving each other.

“If someone were to harm my family or a friend or somebody I love, I would eat them. I might end up in jail for 500 years, but I would eat them.”
“if you love two people at the same time, choose the second. Because if you really loved the first one, you wouldn’t have fallen for the second.”
Music touches us emotionally, where words alone can’t.”

“My body is my journal, and my tattoos are my story.”
“We’re all damaged in our own way. Nobody’s perfect. I think we’re all somewhat screwy. Every single one of us.”
“Just keep moving forward and don’t give a shit about what anybody thinks. Do what you have to do, for you.”
“The only creatures that are evolved enough to convey pure love are dogs and infants.”
“There are four questions of value in life… What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living “for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is same. Only love.”
“I try to stay in a constant state of confusion just because of the expression it leaves on my face.”
“When kids hit 1-year-old, it’s like hanging out with a miniature drunk. You have to hold onto them. They bump into things. They laugh and cry. They urinate. They vomit.”
“She’s kind of a walking poem, she’s this perfect beauty…but at the same time very deep, very smart.”

“I don’t think anybody’s necessarily ready for death. You can only hope that when it approaches, you feel like you’ve said what you wanted to say. Nobody wants to go out in mid-sentence.”
“You gotta be careful: don’t say a word to nobody about nothing anytime ever.”
“You can close your eyes to the things you don’t want to see, but you can’t close your heart to the things you don’t want to feel.”
“I’m shy, paranoid, whatever word you want to use. I hate fame. I’ve done everything I can to avoid it.”
“The term ‘serious actor’ is kind of an oxymoron, isn’t it? Like ‘Republican party’ or ‘airplane food.'”
“I am doing things that are true to me. The only thing I have a problem with is being labeled.”
“If there’s any message, it is ultimately that it’s okay 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.”
“I think the thing to do is to enjoy the ride while you’re on it.”

“They say the world used to be bigger. The world’s still the same–there’s just less in it.”
“My daughter was asked by a little old lady in a London hotel restaurant what her daddy did. She answered, “He’s a pirate” – I was very proud of that answer.”
“Growing old is unavoidable, but never growing up is possible. I believe you can retain certain things from your childhood if you protect them – certain traits, certain places where you don’t let the world go.”
“I don’t pretend to be captain weird. I just do what I do.”
“They stick you with those names, those labels — ‘rebel’ or whatever; whatever they like to use. Because they need a label; they need a name. They need something to put the price tag on the back of.”
