Famous Philosopher, Skeptic, Explorer Quote #0380

Timothy Leary

“Admit it. You aren’t like them. You’re not even close. You may occasionally dress yourself up as one of them, watch the same mindless television shows as they do, maybe even eat the same fast food sometimes. But it seems that the more you try to fit in, the more you feel like an outsider, watching the “normal people” as they go about their automatic existences.”

Timothy Leary

President Richard Nixon once described Leary as “the most dangerous man in America”……

……“turn on, tune in, drop out”.
