"I know who I am inside and outside, and I know what I want to do. And I will always go with my dreams."
"I´m interested in making a path instead of following a trail, and that´s what I want to do in life - in everything I do."
"I really do wish people could understand me some day."
"What one wishes is to be touched by truth and to be able to interpret that truth so that one may use what one is feeling and experiencing, be it despair or joy, in a way that will add meaning to one's life and will hopefully touch others as well."
“When I hear the name Michael Jackson, I think of brilliance, of dazzling stars, lasers and deep emotions. I adore Michael Jackson. I think he is one of the world’s biggest and greatest stars, and it just so happens that he’s one of the most gifted music makers the world has ever known.
What makes Michael more unique may be the fact that all of his accomplishments, his rewards, have not altered his sensitivity and concern for the welfare of others, or his intense caring and love for his family and friends, and especially all the children the world over.
I think Michael is the litmus paper. He is always trying to learn. He is so intelligent and he is alarmingly bright. He is also very curious and wants to draw from people who have survived.
People who have lasted. He’s not really of this planet.
He is filled with deep emotions that create an unearthly, special, innocent, childlike, wise man that is Michael Jackson. I think Michael appeals to the child in all of us, and I think he has the quality of innocence that we would all like to obtain or to have kept.
He has one of the sharpest wits, he’s intelligent and he’s cunning – that is a strange word to use about him, because it implies deviousness and he is one o the least devious people I have ever met in my life – he is honesty personified – painfully honest – and vulnerable to the point of pain.
He is so giving of himself that, at times, he leaves very little to protect the beautiful inner core that is the essence of him. That is the thing that I love so much about him and that makes the world identify with him in the way it does.
Michael Jackson is, indeed, an international favourite for all ages, an incredible force of incredible energy. In the art of music, he is a pacesetter for quality of production, in the vanguard for high standards of entertainment. What is a genius? what is a living legend? What is a megastar? Michael Jackson, that’s all.
And just when you think you know him, he gives you more. . .
I think he is one of the finest people to this planet, and, in my estimation, he’s the true King of Pop, Rock and Soul.”
Elizabeth Taylor´s Introduction in MJ’s book Dancing the Dream book, 1992
"Few artists have used their talents to uplift mankind as vigorously as Michael Jackson. Though lean in stature, he stood firmly against social and political forces that seek to diminish the integrity of human spirit. He uplifted individuals struggling to be free. At the same time his voice spoke a message that went beyond the rights of the individual. Michael reminded us that personal dignity and individual freedom can only be perfected in the warm embrace of human solidarity."

“He was this musical genius with this childlike innocence. He was such a professional, and such a sweetheart.”
Eddie Van Halen
"Indeed, in Jackson´s case he literally embodied the music. It charged through him like an electric current. He mediated it through every means at his disposal - his voice, his body, his dances, films, words, technology and performances. His work was multi-media in a way never before experienced."
Joe Vogel, The Misunderstood Power of Michael Jackson´s Music
“I love to create. I love to make magic. I love to create the unexpected.”
"Rarely has the world received a gift with the magnitude of artistry, talent, and vision as Michael Jackson. He was a true musical icon whose identifiable voice, innovative dance moves and stunning musical versatility. A 13-time Grammy recipient, Michael´s career transcends musical and cultural genres and his contributions will always keep him in our hearts and memories."
Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy
"He loved people deep in his soul. And he was doing music, it was for us."
Dr. Freeze on Michael Jackson
"Sometimes the heart is so heavy that we turn away from it and forget that its throbbing is the wisest message of life, a wordless message that says: LIVE. BE. MOVE. REJOICE - you are alive. Without the heart´s wise rhythm we could not exist."
"I think one of the coolest things he told me was never limit yourself; the fact that if people can whistle your songs then they can understand it all over the world. Because there are language barriers...People speak different languages all over the world. Melody is king and I think Michael really understood that...What we didn't lose is his legacy and that incredible catalogue and body of work...We may have lost the man, but we didn't lose the legacy. The legacy is actually bigger than that one human being. That legacy touched millions."
LL Cool J
"More than any musician in history, his god given gifts were revealed in ways that reached into our souls with a gloved hand, touching the very core of everything that is humanity. Although the "music world" will forever mourn his passing and suffer the loss of his innate creativity, Michael Jackson - the man and his music are forever "Eternal".
"There are two kinds of people in this world: Michael Jackson fans and losers.”
"We owe him an honest view of who he was. We will owe him that until we finally sweep away the crap of sensationalist headlines and clearly see why those who love him know more about him than any expert or journalist who claims to have probed his life. Those journalists and experts do not know Michael Jackson. But if you love him, there´s a good chance that you do."
"The reality is Michael Jackson's humanity is so deep, the implications and inferences of his art so monumentally and magnificently global, that nothing American television could do to besmirch his character could ever, if you will, deny the legitimate genius that he represents."

It is not possible to capture the complexity of Michael Jackson, but we can, at least, try to look into his life, art, and dreams to learn, to understand, and to inspire ourselves. That can change our lives and maybe also the world.
“Michael Jackson was clearly a man ahead of his time, and perhaps, out of sync with it through no fault of his own. His wisdom often fell upon deaf ears because he offered large thoughts to small minds.”
"He was gentle, generous, and remarkably talented. He had a moral code that was unusual in the music industry."
