ON FRIENDSHIP

Dalai Lama: “Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days. An old day passes, a new day arrives.”

Anthony Kiedis: “And my friend’s named Bob. Like the devil knows hell, I know Bob well. Well enough to tell you about his 67 smells.”


ON LOVE

Dalai Lama: “Love is the absence of judgment.”

Anthony Kiedis: “Let me shine your diamond. The girl got a scratch. Slap that cat. Have mercy.”


ON RELIGION

Dalai Lama: “There is no need for temples, no need for complicated philosophies. My brain and my heart are my temples; my philosophy is kindness.”

Anthony Kiedis: “Catholic school girls rule!”


ON DEATH 

Dalai Lama: “If from the beginning your attitude is, ‘Yes, death is part of our lives,’ then it may be easier to face.”

Anthony Kiedis: “Now I lay me down to sleep. I pray the funk will make me freak. If I should die before I waked, allow me, Lord, to rock out naked.”


ON WISDOM

Dalai Lama: “Sometimes one creates a dynamic impression by saying something, and sometimes one creates as significant an impression by remaining silent.”

Anthony Kiedis: “Jam Bob, Jim Bob, slim Bob boogie. To the tune of slime-a Billy, lookin’ like you’re mighty silly. Say what, you got a pumpkin in your pants?”
