20+ Hippie Quotes and Sayings about Life, Peace and Love


Drugs, sex, and rock n’ roll. This is what I thought the hippie movement was all about when I was younger. I saw posters of colorful young people, with oval glasses covering their eyes, joints in their hands, flowers on their head. I knew of Woodstock and John Lennon. I knew that my father used to wear those bell like trousers. I knew something like that existed but I was not sure what it was all about. Until my, very young, cousin decided to dress as a hippie for Halloween. She came with eyes full of wonder and asked, “I was wondering, how I am supposed to act to pass for a hippie?" I couldn’t tell her to find some weed and get laid, could I? And then I realized I knew nothing about the movement behind the stereotype. There should be, there must be an ideology behind all that fuss. So I grabbed her hand and went to my laptop and wikied the hell out of it.

As it seems, the hippie movement is a youth movement which originated in the United States during the 1960’s. It was influenced by Eastern religions, especially Buddism, and various form of spirituality. Its fundamental beliefs revolved around the way humanity interacts with its natural habitat and the way human beings treat each other. They revered harmony with nature, communal living, artistic experimentation and recreational drugs.

They believed true peace may only be achieved by returning to the way we were meant to live. By embracing our true nature as the most intelligent mammals on this planet and creating a peaceful and beneficial co-existence with the planet we call home.
