It's all about winning. Stats really don't matter, I mean, guys have great series and all that, and people take notice and take their place in history with those stats and all that stuff. But at the end of the day, it's all about winning and what you can do to help your team get to that point.— Stephen Curry

Memory, in my opinion, is a complete noodle.
It hangs on the silliest things but forgets the stuff that really matters.
I don't mind being an advocate for weed.

It's other people. It's relationships. It's experience.

The fact of the matter is that today, stuff-selling mega-corporations have a huge influence on our daily lives. And because of the competitive nature of our global economy, these corporations are generally only concerned with one thing - the bottom line. That is, maximising profit, regardless of the social or environmental costs.
Sometimes it is the simplest, seemingly most inane, most practical stuff that matters the most to someone.
They're just opinions, what people say about you.
None of that stuff's true. The only thing that matters is what you think of yourself.
I used to say... 'Don't sweat the small stuff - not even the big stuff.' At the end of the day, none of it matters but your own joy, your own spiritual journey that you go on, God, your loved ones, your friends, your animals. These are the things you've got to cherish and love and embrace.
The great thing about a computer notebook is that no matter how much you stuff into it, it doesn't get bigger or heavier.
When it comes to religion, we're not two sides of the same coin, and you don't get to put your unreason up on the same shelf with my reason. Your stuff has to go over there, on the shelf with Zeus and Thor and the Kraken, with the stuff that is not evidence-based, stuff that religious people never change their mind about, no matter what happens.
There will always be crazy things that happen in our lives, but love is the central connector. If we commit to love and partnership, the other stuff doesnt matter.

This is New York, a combat zone, and everyone has to have an angle or they're not allowed over the bridges or through the tunnels. Let them have their angles, it's what they live for. You've got better things to worry about, like making sure the people that actually matter don't try any funny stuff.
I just feel like, with rappers, there's so much complacency.

I like to use my hands and make things.
.. It might seem pretty stupid or pointless but that doesn't matter... some of the most interesting work is the stuff that starts like that - out of a raw need for activity.
I know the Muslim psychology. It is all pomposity and bravado. I give you my word that if Islam is ridiculed publicly and systematically, it will be defeated. Shame is a great motivator as well as deterrent. Do not underestimate the power of ridicule. This is serious stuff not a laughing matter.
As soon as they say I don't sound as good as my old stuff, I tell them, "I would never sound as good as I first sounded, because you guys didn't know who I was. Being that I'm in rotation, you guys are getting used to the sound, so now you expect another track and another track, but it never happens again, no matter how hard I try."
I set forth a humble and inglorious life;

I have had UFO experiences, and yet, at the same time, I can easily be convinced that none of it is true. It's hard to say whether or not you're a believer. I've been interested in that subject matter, like lots of people. Perhaps foolishly, I've allowed some of that stuff to creep into my music.
Everybody is great when things are great. It's the 'not great' stuff that matters.
Einstein's E=mc2 is an extraordinary concept.
So radical: matter and energy are two phases of the same sort of general stuff. There's only one other idea that radical: Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
I'm remembering how this works. How life doesn't have to be only anxiety about what's gone wrong or could go worng, and complaints about the world around you.

What I tell everyone, and I really do for myself is, I have a long-run dream, which is I want to work on stuff that I think matters.
I like all the kinds of music I've been into.
I'm certainly not a purist in that I will only play country licks in a country song or blues licks in blues stuff. The thing I would like to be able to do is to make the music sound right no matter what it is. If somebody else wants to have a label for it, then that's their business.
You should be able to drink a clean cup of water and you should be able to write your own name. That's the kind of stuff that holds dear to me, not I'm the best rapper. That doesn't matter to me. At that point it's all ego to me and I don't want to be driven by that and I try my best not to.

You can die from drinking too much of anything - coffee, water, milk, soft drinks and all such stuff as that. And so as long as the presence of death lurks with anyone who goes through the simple act of swallowing. I will make mine whisky.
