Malcolm Mclaren Quotes and Sayings

I hope you find great value in these Quotes by Malcolm Mclaren from my large collection of motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings.

Stealing things is a glorious occupations,
particularly in the art world.
- Malcolm Mclaren

I was taught that to create anything you had to believe in failure,
simply because you had to be prepared to go through
an idea without any fear.
Failure, you learned, as I did in art school,
to be a wonderful thing.
It allowed you to get up in the morning and take the pillow off your head.
- Malcolm Mclaren

I always feel more comfortable in chaotic surroundings.
I don't know why that is.
I think order is dull.
There is something about this kind of desire for order,
particularly in Anglo Saxon cultures,
that drive out this ability for the streets to become a really exotic,
amorphous, chaotic, organic place where ideas can,
basically, develop.
- Malcolm Mclaren

In many ways, it is easier to be a good giver than a good receiver.
The giver chooses the gift and the timing.
More important, societal and religious traditions
tend to elevate the status of giver and lower the status of receiver.
When the Bible (Acts 20:32-35) speaks of it being
more blessed to give than to receive,
I believe that a better translation might be
"take" rather than "receive," as the context
of that passage is "coveting."
Certainly there is nothing blessed about coveting,
stealing, begging, or demanding,
however the skill of graciously receiving a freely offered gift
is another matter entirely.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
