    • Robby Kreiger: In The Doors we have both musicians and poets, and both know of each other's art, so we can effect a synthesis.

    • Jim Morrison: If our poetry aims to achieve anything, it's to deliver people from the limited ways in which they see and feel.

    • Jim Morrison: You could say it was an accident that I was ideally suited for the work I am doing It's the primary feeling of a bowstring being pulled back for 22 years and suddenly being
      let go. I am primarily an American, second a Californian, third a Los Angeles resident. I've always been attracted to ideas that were about revolt against authority. I like ideas about breaking away or overthrowing of established order. I am interested in anything about revolt, disorder, chaos, especially activity that seems to have no meaning. It seems to me that the road toward freedom, external revolt, is a way to bring about internal freedom. Rather than starting inside, I start outside, reach the mental through the physical. I am a sagittarian, if that has anything to do with it, the Centaur, the archer, the hunt, but the main thing is we are the Doors.

    • Ray Manzarek: I think The Doors is a representative American group. America is a melting pot and so are we. Our influences spring from a myriad of sources which we have amalgamated, blending divergent styles into our own thing. We're like
      the country itself. America must seem to be a ridiculous hodgepodge to an outsider. It's like The Doors. We come from different areas, different musical areas. We're put together with a lot of sweat, a lot of fighting. All of the
      things people say about America can be said about The Doors.
