watch cartoons. When we came here to work on my album, we rented all these cartoons from the studio, Dumbo and some other stuff. It’s real escapism. It’s like everything’s all right. It’s like the world is happening now in a faraway city.
Everything’s fine.”Michael Jackson [Interview with Rolling Stone (1983)]

# fans # worst attitude of fans
“I do get angry at times because there are those who will come up to you with the worst attitude and will say to you, ‘Sit down, sign my baby’s paper.’ They’ll throw it at you. I’ll say, ‘Do you have a pen?’ ‘You don’t have a pen? Well, go get
one.’ That’s what they’ll actually tell me….I’m amazed by some of the people. They think they own you. And they’ll say to you, ‘Listen, I made you what you are.’ I say, ‘Wait a minute. You didn’t just buy it [album] to help me. You bought it because you like it and that’s true.’
” – Michael Jackson [Interview with Ebony Magazine (1984)]

# Michael Jackson Quotes # travel the world

Switzerland, I almost started crying. I really did.”Michael Jackson [Interview with Ebony Magazine (1984)]

# MJ Quotes # music

# MJ # prayer
“I pray every night. I don’t just pray at night. I pray at different times during the day. When I see something beautiful, whenever I see beautiful scenery – like when I’m flying or something — I say, oh, God, that’s beautiful. And I always say
little prayers like that all through the day. I love beauty.”Michael Jackson [Interview with Ebony Magazine (1984)]

# MJ # acting
“I don’t think acting should be acting. Acting, if you’re acting, you’re imitating realism. You should create realism. It should be called believing. You see, I always was against it when I thought about acting. I don’t want to see an actor. I want so see a believer. I don’t want to see anybody that’s gonna imitate the truths. It’s not
real then. I want to see a person that’s gonna believe the truth….That’s when you move an audience”Michael Jackson [Interview with Ebony Magazine (1984)]

# Will you be there # music # God’s work

I wrote “Will You Be There?” at my house, “Neverland” in California…. I
didn’t think about it hard. That’s why it’s hard to take credit for the songs that I write,
because I just always feel that it’s done from above. I feel fortunate for being that
instrument through which music flows. I’m just the source through which it comes. I
can’t take credit for it because it’s God’s work. He’s just using me as the messenger….” Michael Jackson [Interview with Ebony Magazine (1992)]

# animals # children # creative
“Well, there’s a certain sense that animals and children have that gives me a certain creative juice, a certain force that later on in adulthood is kind of lost because of the conditioning that happens in the world.” – Michael Jackson [Interview with Ebony Magazine (1992)]

# Michael Jackson quotes about Tagore, God, and children
“A great poet said once. “When I see children, I see that God has not yet given up on man.” An Indian poet from India said that, and his name is Tagore.” – Michael Jackson [Interview with Ebony Magazine (1992)]

# innocence of children # infinite creativity
“The innocence of children represents to me the source of infinite creativity. That is the potential of every human being. But by the time you are an adult, you’re conditioned; you’re so conditioned by the things about you and it goes.” – Michael Jackson [Interview with Ebony Magazine (1992)]

# MichaelJacksonQuotes # Love # children
“Love. Children are loving, they don’t gossip, they don’t complain, they’re just open-hearted. They’re ready for you. They don’t judge. They don’t see things by way of color. They’re very child-like. That’s the problem with adults they lose that child-like quality. And that’s the level of inspiration that’s so needed and is so important for creating and writing songs and for a sculptor, a poet or a novelist. It’s that same kind of innocence, that same level of consciousness, that you create from.
And kids have it. I feel it right away from animals and children and nature. Of course.
And when I’m on stage. I can’t perform if I don’t have that kind of ping pony with the crowd. You know the kind of cause and effect action, reaction. Because I play off of them. They’re really feeding me and I’m just acting from their energy.” – Michael Jackson [Interview with Ebony Magazine (1992)]
