  54. 54. 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.Theyre not fond of rules.And they have no respect for the status quo. They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire.You can praise them, disagree with them, They push the human race forward.quote them, disbelieve them,glorify or vilify them. Maybe they have to be crazy. How else can you stare at an empty canvasAbout the only thing you cant do is and see a work of art?ignore them.Because they change things. Or sit in silence and hear a song thats never been written? Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels? 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.
