Hereâ€™s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes.â€¨The ones who see things differently. Theyâ€™re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them. â€¨About the only thing you canâ€™t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire. They push the human race forward.â€¨ Maybe they have to be crazy.â€¨How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art? Or sit in silence and hear a song thatâ€™s never been written? Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?â€¨ While some see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
