#Quote
1[on his Harley Davidson accident] It knocked a big hole in my skull, which filled with bone from my jaw.
2[on being cast in the title role for The Buddy Holly Story (1978)] They finally realized I have the same-sized teeth.
3[A Post on Twitter] Running backwards naked through a cornfield at midnight will show you where you've been.
4(on Jeff Bridges) He's an artist, an actor who wants to tell stories with pictures.
5The more time you take to come clean, the less time it takes dirt to come for you.
6If you take shortcuts, you get cut short.
7Men are failed women at birth.
8Drinking your own blood is the paradigm of recycling.
9[To a huge fan who asked him to sign Buddy Holly's name to a color photo]: There IS no OTHER Buddy Holly... I like Buddy fine, but *I'm* Gary Busey.
10You know what "ROMANCE" stands for? It stands for "Relying On Magnificent And Necessary Compatible Energy".
11You know what "DOUBT" stands for? It stands for "Debate On Understanding Bewildersome Thoughts".
12You know what "SOBER" stands for? It stands for "Son Of a B****, Everything's Real"!
13You know what "FAILING" stands for? It stands for "Finding An Important Lesson, Inviting Needed Growth".
14You know what "FEAR" stands for? It stands for "False Evidence Appearing Real". It's the darkroom where Satan develops his negatives.
15Never dip lower than you can dip.
16It's good for everyone to understand that they are to love their enemies, simply because your enemies show you things about yourself you need to change. So in actuality enemies are friends in reverse.
17Great things like this only happen for the first time once.
