Psychedelic quotes can be very enlightening. There's a popular thread on the Shroomery that contains some very interesting knowledge. We decided to compile our favorites and present them here with some commentary. Enjoy!

jerry garcia"To get really high is to forget yourself and to forget yourself is to see everything else; and to see everything else is to become an understanding molecule in evolution, a conscious tool of the universe." ~Jerry Garcia
Echoing the timeless message of the ancient mystics, Jerry Garcia reminded us that in order to attain true understanding, we must first "forget" ourselves so that we may "see everything else."

maria sabina"There is a world beyond ours, a world that is far away, nearby and invisible." ~Maria Sabina
Maria Sabina helped to introduce her "invisible world" to the Western mind. She was the first curendera to allow westerners to participate in a sacred mushroom ceremony known as veladas.

Terence McKenna"Who is to say what is real and what is not? 'Real' is a distinction of a naïve mind…" ~Terrence Mckenna
Psychedelics teach us that ourworld has no boundaries. McKenna recognized concepts such as "real" & "non real" as artificial restrictions on a boundless world.

Jimi Hendrix"Are you experienced?" ~Jimi Hendrix
When Jimi Hendrix asked the world in 1967, "Are you experienced?" he was asking us if we had undergone the mystic journey with the Allies.

Daniel Pinchbeck"Reality, as you currently experience it, is something like a waking dream. It is disguising deeper and more intensified levels of being and knowing. For those who are ready and willing, the doors to those other levels now stand open." ~Daniel Pinchbeck
Pinchbeck asserts that our reality does not stand alone, but rather exists as one of many levels. It is upon each individual to venture out.

Timothy Leary"Find the others" ~Timothy Leary
Forever transformed and unable to relate back to the ordinary world, psychedelic disciples were urged by Leary to come together as a community. The quote was Leary's response to a reporter who asked what people should do after they "turn on."

Aldous Huxley"The urge to transcend self-conscious selfhood is…a principal appetite of the soul." ~Aldous Huxley
Huxley understood that the basic drive of the soul was to transcend its current state into a higher level of realization. He also understood the potential that psychedelics offered us in pursuing this goal.

John Lilly"In the province of the mind, what one believes to be true either is true or becomes true." ~John Lilly
John Lilly understood the power of belief. It is through belief that our world is created.

Jim Morrison
"Break on through to the other side!" ~Jim Morrison
Jim Morrison's mantra called for an entire generation of seekers to puncture through the wall of ordinary reality.

Bill Hicks"Today, a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration. That we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves." ~Bill Hicks
More of a philosopher than a comedian, this is Bill Hicks' witty response to a stubborn society that refuses to recognize the positive effects of drug induced experiences.

"The visions of your trip are part of a sacred reality that your culture forbids you to believe in." ~Sergeant Spore

Shattering our culture's wall of disbelief, Sergeant Spore contends that the world of psychedelics is just as real as the one we live in.
