“Utilise your madness. Embrace it. Use it to find your way” JOHNNY DEPP

Speaking at Arizona State University, Johnny Depp discusses his own madness and how he learned to embrace it in order to unleash the depths of his creativity. 

“There’s a great deal of pain involved.”

“There’s a reason why the majority of great and sublime comedians, Lenny Bruce, Mitch Hedburg, Richard Pryor, Belushi, Robin Williams, have had substance abuse problems, enormous bouts with depression, and I think that’s because it’s overwhelming if you haven’t accepted it – one’s own madness

“To me it’s only madness, maybe a touch of insanity that one can access, and to be aware of it growing up, it didn’t feel particularly great but I think it has lead me somehow to where I am today. I’m not saying I’m completely mad although I have been accused of that many times over the years.”

 

There is no such thing as normal. Don’t try to fit into conventional mould – it doesn’t exist. Embrace your madness.
