What is Your Current Favorite Prince Quote?

I have a new one.
It's just a small one but loaded with meaning. It shows me once again that Prince really did have a lot of wisdom and strength.

During Show 3 of Montreux 2013, he's singing "Sometimes it Snows in April" and after the lyrics, "Always cry for love, never cry for pain...", he then states, "That's how you grow."

It's hard to select just 1 favorite, so here are 2 of my favorites, from the song "The Love We Make":

--

Happy is the way 2 meet your burdens
No matter how heavy or dark the day
Pity on those with no hope 4 2morrow
It's never as bad as it seems until we say
--

Sacred is the prayer that asks 4 nothing, oh
While seeking 2 give thanks 4 every breath we take, oh
Blessed are we inside this prayer
4 in the new world, we will be there

The only love there is, is the love we make

Live 4 Love ~ Love is God, God is love, Girls and boys love God above

PD1 & Michelle,
I also have a huge affinity for both of those lyrics you posted.
I read that The Love We Make was written for Wendy & Susannah's brother who lost his battle with drug addiction. The only thing that heals such a foe is love.

Regarding The Love We Make, I have read the same thing, that the song was written for Jonathan Melvoin, Wendy & Susannah's brother. He died in 1996, and at the time of his death, he was a member of The Smashing Pumpkins.

So many but:

Shockadelica is a feeling, the lonely cold

Sleepin' alone will bore ya and.. and soon U grow old

In lust we will suffer, but in love we will grow

Shockadelica is a feeling nobody should know

I'm talkin' about the lonely cold mama

"The lighter you touch it, the more it does...See?" (Said to Mr BrownMark on the Screams of Passion soundcheck)

This is true with all things in life.

"I wanna take up all your time and be the only one you hang out with." (Said to Ms JH)

This is a really sweet thought to give to someone for them to cherish.

Anything funny, cheeky yet harmless that he said. P being a smartass.

"Ask your boy" to Questlove after anniliating Jimmy Fallon at ping pong and quest asking "What happened."

"Do you have a concert ticket?" to the audience member when he asked him how he defined 'real' music.

Calling Brooks "Grover Looking"...and also "You all want a whole lot for 200 dollars. Just kidding".

Talking to Kurt Loader about his name change and saying how things might be different if people called him (Kurt that is) Malik. Also the "Ain't you got a woman" line from the same interview.

After MOrris Hays tried to get away with being late for something by referencing Prince's statement about time being a mind trick. and Prince reacted:."Well, how about I Jedi-mind trick you your paycheck next time."

"Its not that I am that good. Its just that Charlie is that bad."..LOL.

When he told Mel B to call him "Spud". and when she asked why, he said "YOu know."

His funny but mostly harmless burn of Mayte's mom (I presume) in the Tavis Smiley interview..."She didn't know the English language too good but she had a cute daughter and that is why we were.. uhh... acquaintances. But she thought the lyrics to Little Red Corvette were "Pay the rent collect."

Now, that was funny.

I love the one to JH. Prince was a unique entity all his own - and a very nice boy.

When you sit down to write something, there should be no guidelines. The main idea is not supposed to be 'How many different ways can we sell it?' That's so far away from the true spirit of what music is.

"You know that Wesley Snipes character? That would have been me. Now you run that video in your mind. The first line in that song is 'your butt is mine'. Now I'm saying, who gonna sing that to whom? Coz you sure ain't singing that to me. And I sure ain't singing it to you. Right there we got a problem."
