Transcript of Those who dance...

''Those who dance are considered insane by those who cannot hear the music.'' Why is that? So without further ado... Why is this quote important to me? I find this quote very motivational because it says that although people don't understand you, what you do may be beautiful, and may even make a difference in the world. Many acclaimed people in the history were dubbed ''crazy''. For example: But who is the genius who said this quote? This guy! George Denis Patrick Carlin was born May 12, 1937 in New York City. He was a stand-up comedian, social critic, satirist, actor and writer/author. George was most noted for his roles in Class Clown ''Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television'', narrator for Thomas and Friends, the voice of Fillmore in Cars, the architect in Scary Movie 3 and the voice of Zugor in Tarzan. Sadly, the esteemed comic died June 22, 2008 in Santa Monica. He was 71 years old Nikola Tesla And Albert Einstein Pythagoras Now I would like to show you a video. Enjoy. For example, say... You should take away from this presentation, and I will too, that even though some people think you are stupid, or weird, or worthless, that doesn't mean you are any of those things. Everyone has something they are good at, or that they enjoy doing, and people don't have the right to judge you on that. THANKS FOR WATCHING! These three people that I have mentioned were all geniuses that made an actual difference in the world, even though many people thought them to be a fool, crazy or stupid. This goes to show that even if people think you are weird, or will never live up to anything, you can still make a difference . It doesn't matter what they think! Hello! This video really changed the way I thought about George Carlin. That show was in early 2008, before he died. In this video George talks about heroes, and how no one should be able to choose the people he admires. Two years later (late 2009/early 2010) Tiger Woods cheated on his wife, and four years later (2012) Lance Armstrong was convicted of using steroids. But at the time of George's show, those two people were very celebrated, and were to be looked up. Many people were astounded by the way George confessed his hate for them, but he proved them all wrong when Tiger and Lance turned out to be bad influences. Why I think George said this quote: The show he was most know for, "Seven Words You Can Never Say On Television", was basically him protesting, and kind of mocking what people thought was acceptable. All he was trying to do was be funny. George was a satirist and a social critic, therefore he had a lot to say about things like religion and politics. The problem most comedians face is that some people just don't think their jokes are funny. George was a very sarcastic person, and occasionally his audience would get offended. In other words, sometimes the audience couldn't hear the music to which George was dancing. Another thing I like about this quote is that although George Carlin said "dancing" and "music", I have a feeling he wasn't actually taking about either of those things.
