Quotes by Prince
Every day I feel is a blessing from God. And I consider it a new beginning. Yeah, everything is beautiful.
When I found out that there was eight Presidents before George Washington, I wanted to smack somebody.
Music is music, ultimately. If it makes you feel good, cool. Prince
Despite everything, no one can dictate who you are to other people.
The gatekeepers must change.
I don’t see why I should give my new music to iTunes or anyone else. They won’t pay me an advance for it and then they get angry when they can’t get it.
