Hip-hop is supposed to uplift and create, to educate people on a larger level and to make a change.
Doug E. Fresh
I've grown to love California: It's the dream of every English musician to come here and work in the sunshine. To walk up Sunset Boulevard, knowing you're going to make music - that's it.
Many drops make a bucket, many buckets make a pond, many ponds make a lake, and many lakes make an ocean.
In all my work, I try to say - 'You may be given a load of sour lemons, why not try to make a dozen lemon meringue pies?'
A hypocrite despises those whom he deceives, but has no respect for himself. He would make a dupe of himself too, if he could.
I get those fleeting, beautiful moments of inner peace and stillness - and then the other 23 hours and 45 minutes of the day, I'm a human trying to make it through in this world.
There are people who make things happen, there are people who watch things happen, and there are people who wonder what happened. To be successful, you need to be a person who makes things happen.
First and foremost I am a drummer. After that, I'm other things... But I didn't play drums to make money.
I was going to go to a four-year college and be an anthropologist or to an art school and be an illustrator when a friend convinced me to learn photography at the University of Southern California. Little did I know it was a school that taught you how to make movies! It had never occurred to me that I'd ever have any interest in filmmaking.
My countrymen, I have given proofs that I am one most anxious for liberties for our country, and I am still desirous of them. But I place as a prior condition the education of the people, that by means of instruction and industry our country may have an individuality of its own and make itself worthy of these liberties.
The thing is, I don't do these things for recognition, being a good teammate, being a positive member of the community. I do them because those things make me whole and complete.
For my part, I try to do my bit to make people's lives more bearable, in particular children across the globe who are having problems.
There is a sound that comes from gospel music that doesn't come from anything else. It is a sound of peace. It is a sound of, 'I'm going to make it through all of this.'
Suppose that 'Unsolved Mysteries' called you with news of a long-lost identical twin. Would that suddenly make you less of a person, less of an individual? It is hard to see how. So, why would a clone be different? Your clone would be raised in a different era by different people - like the lost identical twin, only younger than you.
When I see Kate Moss out and about, I think she looks more beautiful than when her hairdresser and make-up artist try and make her look like something else. And I remember when Madonna first asked Versace to book me to shoot a campaign with her, she came to see me wearing hardly any make-up, and she looked incredible.
A secondhand wardrobe hand clothes doesn't make one an artist. Neither do a hair-trigger temper, melancholic nature, propensity for tears, hating your parents, or HIV. I hate to say it - none of these make one an artist. They can help, but just as being gay doesn't make one witty... the only thing that makes one an artist is making art.
You can live to be a hundred if you give up all the things that make you want to live to be a hundred.
It doesn't take a majority to make a rebellion; it takes only a few determined leaders and a sound cause.
H. L. Mencken
Passivity is fatal to us. Our goal is to make the enemy passive.
If you want to make someone feel emotion, you have to make them let go. Listening to something is an act of surrender.
A mother is not a person to lean on but a person to make leaning unnessary.
Dorothy Canfield Fisher
There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment. This kind of photography is realism. But realism is not enough - there has to be vision, and the two together can make a good photograph.
I was just doing my job in the ring and doing my best to make people happy.
Treasure the things about you that make you different and unique.
When fate hands you a lemon, make lemonade.
John F. Kennedy
