Mitä Lemmy Kilmister voi opettaa meille kaikille elämästä

Rockin yksi kiistattomista legendoista on kuollut.
RIP Ian “Lemmy” Fraser Kilmister 24.12.1945 – 28.12.2015 (70v)

Hänen elämäntavoistaan, musiikistaan tai keräilyharrastuksistaan voidaan olla montaa mieltä, mutta kun ne unohdetaan, tämä yksi rockin suurimmista voi opettaa meille kaikille jotain. Hän ei ehkä päätynyt perheenäitien vaaleanpunaisiin ajatustauluihin Paulo Coelhon tai Jutta Gustafsbergin lailla, mutta jotkin hänen sanomisistaan toimivat meille ihan kaikille.

Tässä muutamia legendaarisia lainauksia Lemmyn kunniaksi:

Elämäntavat:
”A kid once said to me ”Do you get hangovers?” I said, ”To get hangovers you have to stop drinking.”

Katumisesta:
”I don’t do regrets. Regrets are pointless. It’s too late for regrets. You’ve already done it, haven’t you? You’ve lived your life. No point wishing you could change it.”

Huumorista:
”you know the main thing in your life? a sense of humor, lose that, you’re done. you might as well blow your fucking brains out.”

Ystävyydestä:
”In my life so far, I have discovered that there are really only two kinds of people: those who are for you, and those who are against you. Learn to recognize them, for they are often and easily mistaken for each other.”

Itsensä kehittämisestä:
”There are a lot of good books around. People don’t read any more. It’s a sad state of affairs. Reading’s the only thing that allows you to use your imagination. When you watch films it’s someone else’s vision, isn’t it?”

Yrittäjyydestä:
”Don’t look to me. Don’t ask for help. Don’t ask for anything that you can do yourself.”
“Born to lose, live to win.”

Nautinnoista:
“If you didn’t do anything that wasn’t good for you it would be a very dull life. What are you gonna do? Everything that is pleasant in life is dangerous. Have you noticed that? I’d like to find the bastard that thought that one up.”

Rakkaudesta:
”I’ve never met a girl who could stop me looking at all the others. If I did I’d marry her. I’m not going to get married and play around. That’s bullshit. If you get married you should be faithful.”

Elämästä ja kuolemasta:
”Death is an inevitability, isn’t it? You become more aware of that when you get to my age. I don’t worry about it. I’m ready for it. When I go, I want to go doing what I do best. If I died tomorrow, I couldn’t complain. It’s been good.”

Kauan eläköön yksi rockin kiistattomista suuruuksista. Kepeät mullat Lemmy.

”If you think you are too old to rock ’n roll then you are.
