Remembering Prince's Words

Prince, one of the most influential and entertaining singers who helped define a generation, passed away just last week at age 57. After the world lost David Bowie only a few months before, the death of the singer came as yet another shock. Millions are remembering and reminiscing on what the artist's lyrics and character meant to them, and I'd like to take a moment to look over my person top 10 quotes and lyrics from Prince.

1. "Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life. Electric word life. It means forever and that's a mighty long time." - from "Let's Go Crazy"

2. "I had a massive ego. Massive. But that's not such a bad thing. Because at least you're aspiring to be something, you consider yourself great because you want to be great."

3. "No child is bad from the beginning; they just imitate their atmosphere." - from "Sexuality"

4. "A strong spirit transcends rules."

6. "We are the new power generation, we want to change the world." - from "New Power Generation"

7."I heard a voice on the news saying people want to stop the war. If they had a love as sweet as you, they'd forget what they were fighting for." - from "Call My Name"

8. “Every day I feel is a blessing from God. And I consider it a new beginning. Yeah, everything is beautiful.”

9. "Compassion is an action word with no boundaries."

And of course...

10. from "Purple Rain"

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue
