Prince Quotations

Treat a work of art like a prince. Let it speak to you first.
Arthur Schopenhauer

I just want to say, good night, sweet prince, may flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.
Harry Dean Stanton

For my birthday this year, my girlfriends - who knew I'd just inherited my dad's turntable - gave me a carton of albums like 'Blue Kentucky Girl,' by Emmylou Harris, and 'Off the Wall,' by Michael Jackson. It's all stuff we grew up with. I mean, you can't have a music collection without Prince's 'Purple Rain' - it just can't be done!
Connie Britton

I don't need the Prince Charming to have my own happy ending.
Katy Perry

When you look at Prince Charles, don't you think that someone in the Royal family knew someone in the Royal family?
Robin Williams
