„We're all damaged in our own way. Nobody's perfect. I think we're all somewhat screwy. Every single one of us.“

Context: I do have an affinity for damaged people, in life, in roles. I don't know why. We're all damaged in our own way. Nobody's perfect. I think we are all somewhat screwy, every single one of us. Quoted in Bernard Weintraub, "Playboy Interview: Johnny Depp," Playboy (May 2004)
„All the colors of the world should be
Loving each other wholeheartedly,
Yes, it's alright,
Take my message to your brother and tell him twice,
Spread the word and try to teach the man
Who's hating his brother when hate won't do,
When we're all the same,
'Cause the blood inside me is inside of you.“

„Sometimes we have the absolute certainty there's something inside us that's so hideous and monstrous that if we ever search it out we won't be able to stand looking at it. But it's when we're willing to come face to face with that demon that we face the angel.“
— Hubert Selby Jr. American writer 1928 - 2004
