Fly Quotes: Lauryn Hill

Lauryn Hill“Since those who believe they need a hero/celebrity outnumber the actual heroes/celebrities, people feel safe and comfortably justified in numbers, committing egregious crimes in the name of the greater social ego, ironically diminishing their own true hero-celebrity nature in the process.” -Lauryn Hill

Fly Quote: Philippa Schuyler

Philippa Schuyler“Quiet time. I must have directness and self-confidence to triumph over my surroundings. God gave me a gift and he meant for me to use it. He did not mean for me to waste my time…I must pray for help in difficulties I now face. I must have strength of character, courage, and determination.” – Philippa Schuyler

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

tupac“Tupac had a voice. The one thing he didn’t have was subtlety. If he had continued on the same path he had been on, someone who have taken him out. He as disruptive, and he was a threat. 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

Fly Quotes: Cissy Houston

Cissy and Whitney Houston“When you are talking about a living thing- and I do believe music to be a living, breathing thing- you have to understand that it will push and change itself, just to survive. And if it’s something you do everyday, it’s going to change right along with what’s going down in your life.” -Cissy Houston
