You know, fame is a funny thing, man, especially, you know, actors, musicians, rappers, rock singers, it's kind of a lifestyle and it's easy to get caught up in it - you go to bars, you go to clubs, everyone's doing a certain thing... It's tough.

I was going to McDonald's and Taco Bell every day. The kids behind the counter knew me - it wouldn't even faze them. Or I'd sit up at Denny's or Big Boy and just eat by myself. It was sad. I got so heavy that people started to not recognize me

I always wished for this, but it's almost turning into more of a nightmare than a dream.

It creeps me out sometimes to think of the person I was. I was a terrible person. I was mean to people.

Rap was my drug.
                  

It's just hard to meet new people, in my position.
                  

Personally, I just think rap music is the best thing out there, period. If you look at my deck in my car radio, you're always going to find a hip-hop tape; that's all I buy, that's all I live, that's all I listen to, that's all I love.
                  

My thing is this; if I'm sick enough to think it, then I'm sick enough to say it.
                  

I might talk about killing people, but that doesn't mean I do it.
                  

I love the attention but I don't like too much of it.
                  

Say there's a white kid who lives in a nice home, goes to an all-white school, and is pretty much having everything handed to him on a platter - for him to pick up a rap tape is incredible to me, because what that's saying is that he's living a fantasy life of rebellion.
                  

My only scheme was to be a rapper.

Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.
 

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
 

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.
 

Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable... Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.
 

The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.
       

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
       

We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.
       

Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable... Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.

Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
       

Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can't ride you unless your back is bent.
       

A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.
       

We are not makers of history. We are made by history.
       

Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.
       

That old law about 'an eye for an eye' leaves everybody blind. The time is always right to do the right thing.
       

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
       

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit together at the table of brotherhood. Martin Luther King, Jr.
       

We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.

Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men.
       

The past is prophetic in that it asserts loudly that wars are poor chisels for carving out peaceful tomorrows.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic's "Quotes"

  • You never forget where you come from.
  • I can't help but laugh at how perfect I am.
  • If anything, the children of Paris should be giving me even more money for having the privilege of being in the same city as my incredible quality. And so should David Beckham. Call it a Zlaritable donation.
  • When you buy me, you are buying a Ferrari. If you drive a Ferrari, you put premium petrol in the tank, you hit the motorway, and you step on the gas.
  • I think I am difficult to satisfy, because when I win something, I'm already thinking about the next step, and that is maybe a problem for me. I'm not enjoying the moment. I'm already on the mission to win the next trophy.
  • Do you know what I love about hunting? That I am no one in the woods, no one at all. I thought the animals might recognize me, but they didn't. They did not even ask me for any autographs.
  • If I had an ego as big as the Eiffel Tower, would I have won this many collective trophies? I know people like to talk about it. And O.K., I am not going to answer every story. But maybe I will let my collective trophies speak for themselves. I don't know many other footballers who have won as much. Do you?
  • I think I am difficult to satisfy, because when I win something, I'm already thinking about the next step, and that is maybe a problem for me. I'm not enjoying the moment. I'm already on the mission to win the next trophy.
  • Do you know what I love about hunting? That I am no one in the woods, no one at all. I thought the animals might recognize me, but they didn't. They did not even ask me for any autographs.
  • I read all the time that people think I'm arrogant. They say I am cocky, a bad character. I had that from a young age. But when they meet me, they say, 'That image doesn't fit you.
  • Best player I ever played against? I mean, I played against many, many good players, so I don't know who to keep. I would say Ronaldo the Fenomeno.
  • If you are different, or you have minimum possibilities, you can still succeed. I am living proof of that.
  • When you have my confidence, I will do 200% for you.
  • I always drive like a madman.
  • Some things is made by destiny, yes, other things by hard work, but quality you don't learn. Quality you are born with.
  • Nothing is written in stone, as a career is an unpredictable journey.
  • I think I'm like wine. The older I get, the better I get.
  • I still feel I need to do things 10 times better than other players. Just to be accepted and to improve myself.
  • I do not need a trophy to tell myself that I am the best.
  • I am a guy who likes those who drive through red lights.

Michael Jordan's "Quotes"

"Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships."


I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can't accept not trying.


I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over  and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.
 

Gambling is legal and betting is legal, for what I bet.

 

The game of basketball has been everything to me. My place of refuge, place I've always gone where I needed comfort and peace. It's been the site of intense pain and the most intense feelings of joy and satisfaction. It's a relationship that has evolved over time, given me the greatest respect and love for the game.


Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.

I've failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.
 

I'm not out there sweating for three hours every day just to find out what it feels like to sweat.
 

I won't have any competitive instincts in any sports, other than golf. I can't see being competitive in sports any more.
 

The game has its ups and downs, but you can never lose focus of your individual goals and you can't let yourself be beat because of lack of effort.
 

You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them.
 

Sometimes, things may not go your way, but the effort should be there every single night.
 

I've always believed that if you put in the work, the results will come.
 

In reality, I never want to grow up.
 

In any investment, you expect to have fun and make money.
 

We all fly. Once you leave the ground, you fly. Some people fly longer than others.
 

Winning isn't always championships.
 

My attitude is that if you push me towards something that you think is a weakness, then I will turn that perceived weakness into a strength.
 

To be successful you have to be selfish, or else you never achieve. And once you get to your highest level, then you have to be unselfish. Stay reachable. Stay in touch. Don't isolate.
 

There is no 'i' in team but there is in win.
 

There is no such thing as a perfect basketball player, and I don't believe there is only one greatest player either.
 

My attitude is that if you push me towards something that you think is a weakness, then I will turn that perceived weakness into a strength.

Mark Zuckerberg is an American computer programmer and Internet entrepreneur. He is a co-founder of Facebook, and currently operates as its chairman and chief executive officer. His net worth is estimated to be US$63.3 billion as of May 2017, and he is ranked by Forbes as the fifth richest person in the world.

The biggest risk is not taking any risk... In a world that changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks.

Facebook was not originally created to be a company. It was built to accomplish a social mission - to make the world more open and connected.

I wear the same outfit or, at least, a different copy of it almost every day.

A frustration I have is that a lot of people increasingly seem to equate an advertising business model with somehow being out of alignment with your customers. I think it's the most ridiculous concept.

Our goal is not to build a platform; it's to be cross all of them.

I think a simple rule of business is, if you do the things that are easier first, then you can actually make a lot of progress.

Figuring out what the next big trend is tells us what we should focus on.

When I started Facebook from my dorm room in 2004, the idea that my roommates and I talked about all the time was a world that was more open.

I actually do think you're seeing this trend towards organizations just caring more about their brand and engaging. And so I think Home Depot will want to humanize itself. I think that's a lot of why companies are starting blogs, are just giving more insight into what's going on with them.

Move fast and break things. Unless you are breaking stuff, you are not moving fast enough.

By giving people the power to share, we're making the world more transparent.

I'm trying to make the world a more open place.

There are good examples of companies - Coca-Cola is one - that invested before there was a huge market in countries, and I think that ended up playing out to their benefit for decades to come

People at Facebook are fairly used to the press being nice to us or not nice to us.

We're running the company to serve more people.

A squirrel dying in front of your house may be more relevant to your interests right now than people dying in Africa.

The thing that we are trying to do at facebook, is just help people connect and communicate more efficiently.

The basis of our partnership strategy and our partnership approach: We build the social technology. They provide the music.

The question isn't, 'What do we want to know about people?', It's, 'What do people want to tell about themselves?'
