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.
