Fly Quotes: Afeni Shakur

Afeni Shakur“I could always talk. My problem was knowing when to shut up. Articulating my feelings was never a problem. But I don’t believe artists are cultivated like corn or cotton. Artists are messengers from God. They get here on earth and express themselves because of Him.” -Afeni Shakur

Fly Quotes: Gobi Rahimi On Tupac Shakur

He was a threat to the establishment. I don’t know who took him out. But whoever took him out took out someone very important who could have dome a lot for African Americans and humanity as a whole.”

Fly Quotes: Natalie Cole

Natalie Cole“There are so many things in this world that I don’t know or understand. But I do know this in the core of my being.

It was love that sustained and lifted me during a fragile and frightening time in my life. Love led me when I couldn’t see my way out. Love carried me when I couldn’t take another step. When my hunger was insatiable, love fed and filled me. Love comforted me when I was sick and hurting. Love kept me sane, focused, and steady- all day long, all night through.

Love brought me back.”- Natalie Cole

Fly Quotes: John Leguizamo

leguizamo“See, I didn’t want to be a movie star. I wanted to be an actor. There’s a big difference. Most movie stars aren’t very good. They’re usually not talented. They’re people who have a look the public likes, or they’re clever enough businesswise to manipulate the system, or they’re all drive and ambition. But they’re not real actors.” -John Leguizamo
