I believe that one defines oneself by reinvention… To be yourself. To cut yourself out of stone.

Henry Rollins

To iconic punk artist Henry Rollins, being stagnant and unimaginative is among the biggest transgressions one can make in life. From his time as the frontman for the pioneering hard-core band Black Flag, to his work as a vocal advocate for social change, Rollins is constantly challenging himself and others to break the mold. As a musician, poet, radio host, and actor, he is known for his passion, intensity, and refusal to stop creating. With these words from his 1997 collection of writing, “The Portable Henry Rollins,” Rollins challenges us to travel down life’s unbeaten paths, do things our own way, and embrace the qualities that make us unique.
