In your eyes who's the most inspirational person ever??

well...i'll start the ball rolling

BILL HICKS

Bill hicks , was the first comedian i ever heard who didn't tell jokes about Airplane food , or having crap ..psst( take not eddie murphy)but he was funny in shrek

He made me question everything around me and make me make my own judgements about things, eg religion , media and general beliefs

yet i don't agree on everything he says i like the point he elucidated to me

Lot of Christians wear crosses around their necks. Do you think when Jesus comes back he's gonna wanna see a ****ing cross, man?

i always find this quote comforting.....


The world is like a ride at an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it, you think that it's real because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills, and it's very brightly coloured, and it's very loud and it's fun, for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they begin to question - is this real, or is this just a ride? And other people have remembered, and they come back to us. They say 'Hey! Don't worry, don't be afraid, ever, because, this is just a ride.' And we...kill those people. Ha ha ha. 'Shut him up! We have a lot invested in this ride. SHUT HIM UP! Look at my furrows of worry. Look at my big bank account and family. This just has to be real.' It's just a ride. But we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that, you ever notice that? And let the demons run amok. But it doesn't matter because: it's just a ride. And we can change it anytime we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings, and money. A choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourselves off. The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one. Here's what you can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money that we spend on weapons and defence each year, and instead spend it feeding, clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, for ever, in peace.
Bill Hicks

I just started reading the book of/aboutBill Hicks: Love all the people. It's pretty interesting.

But to answer your question, Pierre Bourdieu comes closest I think.

Alexander Trocchi

Brilliant author who is highly underrated and easily pigeon-holed into a fringe beat player. In actual fact though his own life story makes a better read than his book but I found him very inspirational.

"No doubt I shall go on writing, stumbling across tundras of unmeaning, planting words like bloody flags in my wake."- Trocchi

I've seen some of Bill Hick's gigs on DVD. Funny guy, but lewd and crude at times which puts you off a bit.
