The Cosmic Wisdom of Gary Busey

Gary Busey (1944 - ) is a well-known film actor, having appeared in The Buddy Holly Story, The Bear, The Firm, and about 150 others. He also has an unusual take on success, life, and how to cope with it. Very clearly, he has an original perspective that deserves to be recognized. Here are some of his observations:

If you take shortcuts, you get cut short.


Winners do what losers don't want to do. 


Amen is not the end of a prayer, it just gets us ready to go to the next level. 


You know what 'DOUBT' stands for? It stands for 'Debate On Understanding Bewildersome Thoughts.' 


I don't know where I come from but I'm here now so deal with it. 


Fear is the dark room where the Devil develops his negatives.


I've been told by doctors and surgeons that I have the energy of ten men who have normal jobs.

Nothing changes like changes, because nothing changes but the changes.


I love love, and I love life. I love. I just love. It's just great. It's the most enduring element we have is love.


know what 'FAILING' stands for? It stands for 'Finding An Important Lesson, Inviting Needed Growth.'

I love love, and I love life. I just love. It's just great. The most enduring element we have is love.


My dark side, my shadow, my lower companion is now in the back room blowing up balloons for kids' parties.


There's got to be more to life than being a really, really ridiculously good actor.


Never dip lower than you can dip.

I like this one:

"know what 'FAILING' stands for? It stands for 'Finding An Important Lesson, Inviting Needed Growth."

The second meme is very interesting. Probably wrong, but interesting.

I would give him a balloon and asked him to blow it up. He ought to be flattered that I was familiar with his sayings.

Interesting quotes. He certainly has a different point of view.

Oh we can always gain amusement from this former cocaine sniffing hound. He is here and we all have to deal with it. You never know what will come out of that mouth but I would say to keep him away from any kid's parties

Gary Busey is a deep thinker who deserves more credit.
