    He was fired from Harvard for giving psilocybin to an undergraduate.
    He is a vegetarian.
    He came out of the closet in his 60s: 'All my life has been telling the truth. My homosexuality is the one thing I have not been truthful about.'

    'Remember, Be Here Now' became a Bible of the counterculture.
    He suffered a stroke that left him paralyzed on the right side of his body and limited his ability to speak (1997).
    He said, 'The spiritual journey is highly personal. It isn't true that everyone should follow one path. Listen to your own truth.'
