The Crazy Ones

Have you seen the Apple computer commercial, "The Crazy Ones"? Very moving. My favorite commercial of all time.

"Here’s to The Crazy Ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently.

They’re not fond of rules and they have no respect for the status quo. You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward.

While some see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do." ~ words of the commercial

————————

They imagine. They believe. They see. They invent. They create. They explore. They inspire. Yes, they are crazy – how else could they stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art?

They are so visionary that they are blind to impossibilities. They see so many solutions that they do not believe in limitations. They have “Yes” faces and “Can do” attitudes. History has shown us that the crazy ones believe so strongly in something not yet tangible that they are even willing to sacrifice their own life to see it come to pass.

What is that I ask? It’s rooted in the human spirit and it’s so deep that it’s beyond words. It’s like love. You cannot define it or contain it or quench it.

I identify with "the crazy ones", they are the ones that move me, the ones that leave an impression on me, they are my heroes. I aspire to be as them, crazy enough to believe that I can change the world.

crazy is an expression of joy and gladness never refers to who are really mad when someone dares to do things that others we may seem crazy or something unattainable but they are called crazy for being a courageous people and they decide one day go ahead and do it, those people for me are brave heroes and because CRAZY. Jacknett not mistake that will not mean any harm.

My late husband, Tim, was one of those rare people, and everyone who knew him agreed that he was a little bit crazy. But that is what I loved most about him. He taught me so much about dreaming without limitations, about not even entertaining the concept of “not possible.” Before he died, he was building his own wooden X-Wing airplane (full scale). Everyone thought he was crazy, and yet, those same people admired him for his guts and determination. He was a brilliant man in so many ways, yet always remained childlike in his innocence about life’s possibilities. To him, the world was a wonderful playground. I wish everyone could have known him. Don’t hold back a thing, Niko. Be a “crazy ass musician.” Lovingly, Margo

hi niko! i’ve always loved reading your messages. they kind of make me pause for a while and contemplate about the peculiarities of life. as for me, i’ve lived my life doing things i want, regardless of what other people may say, as long as i do not trample anybody’s principles. i am an absolute non-conformist, i hate routines, i hate rules, and i know this world would be better if only we would start living freely and develop a sense of respect on other’s beliefs. you know, that kind of freedom with responsibility. it’s sad because only a few people are absolutely true to themselves, and even fewer dare to change it. thanks for always sharing your wonderful thoughts! 🙂

It has been my experience, that when the others “think” you are crazy, you have found the place of expansion. “You are crazy” is only a reflection of “contraction”. Peace, Love and Blessings……

The persons mentioned in this video are historical persons.
However, Niko, I miss it very significant others.
John F. Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy, Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter,
The Bee Gees, Barbra Streisand, John Barry (composer of
subcontractor James Bond movies)… I mentioned these persons
were very positive presence in my life. Even more than
the persons mentioned in the YouTube video.

Friendly regards of Frits Hoving, The Netherlands.
