    Poetry always brings the twists of life. It makes you see life in a different way. I wonder how life could be without poetry.

    This quote really strikes home. Artists and writers are weird in a beautiful way hence their strange view of things.

    I couldn’t agree more. The artsy people always have a weird way of looking at the world

    We should treasure and appreciate artists more! Without them, just imagine how dark this world would be.

    I guess those that we consider as misfits think deeply about life..they are brainy and very intelligent..

    I guess they are blessed, specially cause these days is hard to see the world with other eyes when we are trapped by technology and consumism.

    Innovators have this mindset. History itself has enough proof in the pudding. I would say. However to me they are not weird but rather they are just to focused on things. For better or worse the world changes due to their actions.

    We can learn a lot from weird people. They think out of the box and they see things from a different perspective.
