"The world is so jagged, I like smooth waves. It’s the way I live now. When Larry Graham first came around here, we had a lot of crazy people in here. Now, no one argues, no one swears, no one smokes, no one talks harsh. We all enjoy each other. You don’t know what that’s like till you start living like that, because for a long time I didn’t. It was affecting me up here (points to his head), which in turn affected me here (points to throat). I changed the way I operate. A lot of my contemporaries didn’t. That’s the reason I’m still here & a lot of them aren’t"
— Prince (via erotic-city)
