PRINCE QUOTES

Prince quote

Love isn't love until it's past.

PRINCE, Sometimes It Snows in April

I guess U know me well, I don't like winter
But I seem 2 get a kick out of doing U cold
Oh, what the hell, U always surrender
What's this strange relationship that we hold on 2?
Baby I just can't stand 2 see U happy
More than that I hate 2 see U sad
Honey if U left me I just might do something rash
What's this strange relationship? (ship, ship, ship)

PRINCE, "Strange Relationship"

Music is music, ultimately. If it makes you feel good, cool.

PRINCE, MTV interview with Sway Calloway

Maybe I'll die young like heroes die,
Maybe I'll kiss you some wild special way.
If nobody kills me or thrills me soon,
I'll die in your arms under the cherry moon.

PRINCE, "Under the Cherry Moon"

Seems that I was busy doing something close to nothing
But different than the day before
That's when I saw her, ooh, I saw her
She walked in through the out door, out door

PRINCE, "Raspberry Beret"

Life is just a party, and parties weren't meant 2 last.

PRINCE, "1999"

Someone told me they saw me at my peak, but how do they know when my peak is? I think I'm improving all the time. When I listen to my old records I'm ashamed of how I played then.

PRINCE, "Inside Prince's bizarre life at Paisley Park: This is what happened when we visited the music icon", The Mirror, April 21, 2016

It's a hurtful place, the world, in and of itself. We don't need to add to it.

PRINCE, Tavis Smiley Show, April 27, 2009

Dream if U can a courtyard,
An ocean of violets in bloom.
Animals strike curious poses;
They feel the heat,
The heat between me and U.

PRINCE, "When Doves Cry"

I never meant to cause you any sorrow
I never meant to cause you any pain
I only wanted to one time to see you laughing
I only wanted to see you
Laughing in the purple rain

PRINCE, "Purple Rain"

Dearly beloved
We are gathered here today
2 get through this thing called life.

PRINCE, "Let's Go Crazy"

So I'm doing it to challenge myself, like tying one hand behind my back, not relying on the craft that I've known for 30 years. I won't know what songs I'm going to do when I go on stage, I really won't. I won't have to, because I won't have a band. Tempo, keys, all those things can dictate what song I'm going to play next, you know, as opposed to, 'Oh, Iíve got to do my hit single now, I've got to play this album all the way through,' or whatever. There's so much material, it's hard to choose. It's hard. So that's what I'd like to do.

PRINCE, interview, The Guardian, November 12, 2015

I feel that music is a blessing. I don't feel like I'm working. So when I'm not "working," I'm thinking about it, so music takes up a good portion of the time.

PRINCE, MTV interview with Sway Calloway

Happiness in it's uncut form
Is the feeling that I get, you're warm, warm
Happy's what I get when we do what we do
Happiness, mama, is being with u

PRINCE, "Girls & Boys"

Now where I come from
We don't let society
Tell us how it's supposed to be
Our clothes, our hair
We don't care

PRINCE, "Uptown"

I'm not a woman;
I'm not a man.
I am something that U'll never understand.

PRINCE, "I Would Die 4 U"

A body like yours oughta be in jail
'Cause it's on the verge of being obscene

PRINCE, "Little Red Corvette"

Life is just a game, we're all just the same...do you wanna play?

PRINCE, "Controversy"

People, especially young people, don't have enough God in their lives.

PRINCE, "Inside Prince's bizarre life at Paisley Park: This is what happened when we visited the music icon", The Mirror, April 21, 2016

Well we've been at war since about 1914. The world's just been chaotic. It's caused injury to man for a long time now. The only thing that's gonna get us out of this mess is coming back to God. I like to try to keep the focus there. Man hasn't really done too well, getting us out of this predicament, so I think sooner or later we're gonna all have to turn back to God.

PRINCE, MTV interview with Sway Calloway

Yeah, they say two thousand zero zero party over,
oops out of time
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999.

PRINCE, "1999"

Playing electric guitar your whole life does something to you. I'm convinced all that electricity racing through my body made me keep my hair.

PRINCE, "Inside Prince's bizarre life at Paisley Park: This is what happened when we visited the music icon", The Mirror, April 21, 2016

That's what you want. Transcendence. When that happens ... Oh, boy.

PRINCE, interview, The Guardian, November 12, 2015

In this life
Things are much harder than in the afterworld
In this life,
You're on your own.

PRINCE, "Let's Go Crazy"

She wore a raspberry beret
The kind U find in a second hand store
Raspberry beret
And if it was warm she wouldn't wear much more

PRINCE, "Raspberry Beret"

Music is my life. It's my trade. If I can't get it out of my head I can't function.

PRINCE, "Inside Prince's bizarre life at Paisley Park: This is what happened when we visited the music icon", The Mirror, April 21, 2016

Every day I'm satisfied. Every day I feel is a blessing from God. And I consider it a new beginning. Yeah, everything is beautiful.
