"I've tried every approach to life. I bought a bunch of stuff. and was like, nah. That's not it. Thought I'd shut myself off. Maybe that’s cool. Maybe that’s what you have to do to be a genius, you have to be mad. If you get the word 'mad' from the word 'genius' then maybe you'd make the genius appear. But that doesn’t work either. What I'm trying to say is I've messed with all the approaches except for one. and that’s just love. I've done everything in my life that I want to do except just give and receive real love. I don't mean like a Roman Candle fireworks, Hollywood, hot pink love. I mean like no matter what, I got your back love. I don't need to hear I love you. Some of the people who say they love you, are the last to have your back. So I’m going to experiment with this love thing..."

I LOVE John. He said the same thing at the concert Allison and I attended in December.
He's a good dude.
I'd tell him that I've got his back. Any time.
