Life Lessons On Love
“If you enter this world knowing you are loved and you leave this world knowing the same, then everything that happens in between can be dealt with.”
“Hope is such a beautiful word, but it often seems very fragile. Life is still being needlessly hurt and destroyed.”
“Be like children , Not childish but childlike.”
“Never rush an emotion, everything in life has a rhythm, it is the pauses and silences that speak the truth.”
“I look at things and try to imagine what is possible and then hope to surpass those boundaries.”
“Holding on to love is not wrong, but you need to learn to hold it lightly, caressingly. Let it fly when it wants. When it’s allowed to be free, love is what makes life alive, joyful, and new. As long as love is in my heart, it’s everywhere.”
“I am going to say something I have never said before and this is the truth. I have no reason to lie to you and God knows I am telling the truth. I think all my success and fame and I have wanted it, I have wanted it because I wanted to be loved. That’s all. That’s the real truth.”
“What good is freedom without love?”
“In accepting yourself completely, trust becomes complete. There is no longer any separation between people, because there is no longer any separation inside. In the space where fear used to live, love is allowed to grow.”
“For me, Love is something very pure.”
Love For Others
“But I will never stop helping and loving people the way Jesus said to.”
How can we preach, when all we make this world to be is a living hell torturing our minds. We all must unite, to turn darkness to light, And the love in our hearts will shine.
“What I enjoy most about performing is making people happy. Just to make a person smile means more to me than anything.”
“Let us dream of tomorrow where we can truly love from the soul, and know love as the ultimate truth at the heart of all creation.”
“In spite of the risks, the courage to be honest and intimate opens the way to self-discovery. It offers what we all want, the promise of love.”
“I want my work to help people rediscover the child that’s hiding in them.”
“You never know how long you have with someone, so don’t forget to say I love you while you can.”
“Love is the human family’s most precious legacy. Its richest bequest. Its golden inheritance.”
“The courage to be honest and intimate opens the way to self-discovery. It offers what we all want, the promise of love.”
Heal the world, make it a better place
For you and for me and the entire human race
There are people dying, if you care enough for the living
Make a better place for you and for me.
Love For Children
Children show me in their playful smiles the divine in everyone. This simple goodness shines straight from their hearts and only asks to be loved.
When I see children, I see the face of God. That’s why I love them so much. That’s what I see.
“I want to tell the children of the world, you are all our children, each one of you is my child and I love you all.”
“I’m not trying to be philosophical, but I really think it’s my job to help children. And I don’t care if people laugh.”
“What we need to learn from children isn’t childish. Being with them connects us to the deep wisdom of life, which is ever present and only asks to be lived. Now, when the world is so confused and its problems so complicated, I feel we need our children more than ever. Their natural wisdom points the way to solutions that lie, waiting to be recognized, within our own hearts.”
“I would like to think that I’m an inspiration for the children I meet. I want kids to like my music. Their approval means more to me than anyone else’s.”
Love For Hard Work, Talent And Music
“I love experienced people. I love people who are phenomenally talented. I love people who’ve worked so hard and been so courageous and are the leaders in their fields. For me to meet somebody like that and learn from them and share words with them—to me that’s magic.”
“Music is a mantra that soothes the soul…something our body has to have. It’s important to understand the power of music.”
“I start to spin as wildly as I can. This is my favorite dance because it contains a secret. The faster I twirl, the more I am still inside. My dance is all motion without all silence within. As much as I love to make music, its the unheard music that never dies.”
“When I perform, I lose myself. I’m in total control of that stage. I don’t think about anything. I know what I want to do from the moment I step out there and I love every minute of it.”
“I’m actually relaxed onstage. Totally relaxed. It’s nice. I feel relaxed in the studio too. I know whether something feels right. If it doesn’t, I know how to fix it. Everything has to be in place and if it is you feel good, you feel fulfilled.”
“A perfectionist has to take his time. He shapes and molds and sculpts that thing until it’s perfect. He can’t let it go before he’s satisfied; he can’t.”
“I totally enjoy what I’m doing and bringing joy into people’s lives. To me, and if I can bring one second of joy into a child or a grown-up’s life, then I have achieved my lifetime ambition.”
“I’m a person of the arts. I love the arts very, very, very much. And ah, I’m a musician, I’m a director, I’m a writer, I’m a composer, I’m a producer, and I love the medium. I love film very, very much. I think it’s the most expressive of all of the art mediums.”
“I love great music — it has no color, it has no boundaries.”
(Love) “It’s the juice and energy that motivates my music, my dancing, everything.
Love For Earth And All Its Creatures
“Innocent animals, they do not suspect that after all this time, they will fall from a bullet by the thousands. They will lie in the dust, mutilated by our shameless greed.”
“Planet earth, gentle and blue, with all my heart, I love you.”
“Well, I don’t know how this sounds, but I saw a picture today in the papers. A dolphin had drowned in a fishing net. From the way its body was tangled in the lines, you could read so much agony. Its eyes were vacant yet there was still that smile, the one dolphins never lose, even when they die.”
“What delights nature must feel when she makes stars out of swirling gas and empty space. She flings them like spangles from a velvet cape, a billion reasons for us to be awaken in pure joy. When we open our hearts and appreciate all she has given us. Nature finds her reward. The sound of applause rolls across the universe and she bows.”
“The infinity of God’s creation embraces me. We are one.”
“We have to heal our wounded world.”
“I feel sad to think how carelessly we treat our home. The earth we all share is not just a rock tossed through space but a living, nurturing being. She cares for us: she deserves our care in return. We have been treating Mother Earth the way some people treat a rental apartment. Just trash it and move on.”
Love For His Children And Family
“And I love my parents. My mother is like a saint. She is….she is not of this earth. She is unbelievable wonderful and I don’t have a bad thing to say about her.”
“I love my family very much. I wish I could see them a little more often than I do. But we understand because we’re a show business family and we all work.”
“I pray that my children will give me the benefit of the doubt. That they will say to themselves: “Our daddy did the best he could, given the unique circumstances that he faced. He may not have been perfect, but he was a warm and decent man, who tried to give us all the love in the world… I hope that they will always focus on the positive things, on the sacrifices I willingly made for them, and not criticize the things they had to give up, or the errors I’ve made, and will certainly continue to make, in raising them. For we have all been someone’s child, and we know that despite the very best of plans and efforts, mistakes will always occur. That’s just being human.“
“To make them hold their hands and look them in the eyes and tell them, “I love you.” That would be remembered forever. I do it to Prince and Paris everyday. (This was before Blanket was born.)
“Well, I enjoy taking care of my children myself. It’s fun. It’s why I had them. So I could take care of them. It’s great relief for me. It’s pleasure. It keeps me happy and laughing. They’re wonderful, sweet, innocent children….”
“They (my children) mean… It’s hard to put in words, because they mean everything. The way you would explain how your children make you feel… They’re the world for me. I wake up and I’m ready for the day because of them. I get them breakfast, I change diapers, if they want to read, we do a lot of reading, we play hide and seek, we play blind fold, and I have a wonderful time with them.”
“They love music…they are very much into the arts. But I don’t push them. I am letting them enjoy their childhood as much as possible. I really do. I let them go to the arcade and get out and go to the movies and do things. I think that comes naturally. You know, I want them to get to do the kind of things I didn’t get to do. So I fill them with a lot of enjoyment that way – a lot of amusement. You know? I get pretty emotional when I see them having a wonderful time; when they are on a ride and they are screaming and they are happy and they are running. It makes me emotional, cause I see they are having a real good time.”
“I say, ‘You should blanket me’ or ‘you should blanket her’, meaning like a blanket is a blessing. It’s a way of showing love and caring.”
“I do my best. Sure. I want to be the best father in the world, of course.”
Love For Fans
“They scream, they cry, they love, they support, they defend, they listen. My fans are everything.”
“My fans truly are a part of me, we share something that most people will never experience.”
“Some friends, you only see them when the sun shines.. My fans sustained me even in dark days. I owe them everything.”
“The fans don’t know how much I love them so. It really can get to a hurting feeling inside due to how strong I love them all.”
“I appreciate all my fans, on all occasions, everyday of my life. Its your presence and your loyalty that has given me great strength”
Love And Relationships
“Needless to say, I love the interaction between the sexes; it is a natural part of life and I love women. I just think that when sex is used as a form of blackmail or power, it’s a repugnant use of one of God’s gifts.” ~ Michael Jackson [Moonwalk p. 174]
“I do think that marriage can be a wonderful thing if it’s the right thing for the two people involved. I believe in love – very much so – how can you not believe after you’ve experienced it? I believe in relationships. One day, I know I’ll find the right woman and get married myself.”~ Michael Jackson [Moonwalk p. 254]
“Love is a funny thing to describe. It’s so easy to feel and yet so slippery to talk about.”
“Of course, I believe in love. Its beautiful when it’s right. My love life is like my music.”
The Last Tear – Dancing The Dream
Your words stabbed my heart, and I cried tears of pain. “Get out!” I shouted. “These are the last tears I’ll ever cry for you.” So you left.
I waited hours, but you didn’t return. That night by myself I cried tears of frustration.
I waited weeks, but you had nothing to say. Thinking of your voice, I cried tears of loneliness.
I waited months, but you left no sign for me. In the depths of my heart, I cried tears of despair.
How strange that all these tears could not wash away the hurt.Then one thought of love pierced my bitterness. I remembered you in the sunlight, with a smile as sweet as May wine. A tear of gratitude started to fall, and miraculously, you were back. Soft fingers touched my cheek, and you bent over for a kiss.
“Why have you come?” I whispered.
“To wipe away your last tear,” you replied. “It was the one you saved for me.”

“Why Did You Take Away Your Love?” Love Letter Written After Blanket’s Birth in 2002 (possibly after 2005?)- Unknown Time And Source
Front of letter:
Why did you take away your love, the same love that made me unable to speak and made me forget my worries, the love that saved me? Tell me, did I come to [sic] short? Wasn’t I enough? Have I done or said something wrong? I believe in miracles and [blocked] angels. I know you escaped through heaven’s gates to brighten the [blocked]. I believe in FAITH, deep inside I feel that nature has banded us.
I have seen nothing but misery in my life until [blocked] all these years, I have been seeking to give while I only desire now to receive from you. Your heart commanded me to follow while my soul was hurt and my mind CONFUSED.
I allowed you to take possession of my feelings. In return, I loved, obeyed and honored you beyond words.
I revealed myself to you in ways from which I thought they were impossible.
I saw and still see you as my soulmate, as my wife and as the mother of my fourth child.
Back of letter:
Then what is your reason for leaving?
Why did you go away, silently in the middle of the night without me, the slave of your heart?
I cannot conceive it possible.
I know we are meant to be, I can feel it. Still I have no regrets for what happened between us, [blacked out]. I can only come to the conclusion that you have made an unnatural decision that was not supported by your heart, nor were these your words. It is my will to believe that other matters have caused you to run away like this.
But whatever the reason maybe, I will not let it divide us. I prefer myself to believe that our parting is only temporary.
Let me strive for another outcome.
For ever yours,
Call me [blacked out]
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!
