4 – “If people have a passion for anything they tend to get quite good at it.”

4 more best Brian quotes about life:

6 – “Live at your highest potential-moment to moment to moment… When do we feel most alive? When we’re being ourselves-our highest selves.”

7 – “I strongly believe that nothing is more spiritual than living at our highest potential while serving others. I believe that the more closely aligned we are to “spirit” the more fully we will give ourselves in service to the world. As such, my “spiritual path” is the path that leads me to a more complete manifestation of my unique Bodhisattvic duties.”

8 – “If we want happiness, I think we should follow classic Greek wisdom and live with areté. The word directly translates as ‘excellence’ or ‘virtue,’ but has a deeper meaning — something closer to ‘expressing the highest version of ourselves.’ When we’re showing up fully moment to moment, there’s no room for regret/anxiety/disillusionment, just a whole lot of happiness. Here’s to getting our areté on!”

9 – “All the other stuff without love? Not worth a whole lot. Love starts with ourselves and needs to be approached like anything else we want to master-with a lot of diligent studying and practicing!”

Bonus quote

In an recent interview with Rock 100.5 Atlanta, Brian Johnson talked about the worst part of being in the band and he revealed that the privacy is one of the most difficult things in his life:

“Well, look, we’ve got iPhones, cellphones and social media, which I’m not on – I don’t even have a cellphone and iPhone. The privacy bit – because you were always quiet, AC/DC always lived under the radar as it were.”

“All the boys when I joined, lived well-away from the hoopla and the special parties, opening-up things or whatever it is, the boys always kept well below the radar, and that was happy, care-free.”

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
