Tupac Shakur's quotes
- Everybody's at war with different things...I'm at war with my own heart sometimes". In Vibe interview 2/96
- Reality is wrong. Dreams are for real.
- The only thing that comes to a sleeping man is dreams.
- The reason why I could get into acting was because it takes nothing to get out of who I am and go into somebody else.
- I'm not saying I'm gonna change the world, but I guarantee that I will spark the brain that will change the world.
- I swear, if they hadn't tried to ruin me, I never would have ended up being a rapper. I probably would have been a preacher or something.
- It's the game of life. Do I win or do I lose? One day they're gonna shut the game down. I gotta have as much fun and go around the board as many times as I can before it's my turn to leave.
- All I'm trying to do is survive and make good out of the dirty, nasty, unbelievable lifestyle that they gave me.
- It seems like every time you come up something happens to bring you back down.
- I think I'm a natural-born leader. I know how to bow down to authority if it's authority that I respect.
- My mama always used to tell me: 'If you can't find somethin' to live for, you best find somethin' to die for.'
- Don't change on me. Don't extort me unless you intend to do it forever.
- I don't have no fear of death. My only fear is coming back reincarnated.
- Is it a crime, to fight, for what is mine?
- It's a struggle for every young Black man. You know how it is, only God can judge us.
- I don't see myself being special; I just see myself having more responsibilities than the next man. People look to me to do things for them, to have answers.
- I would rather have been shot straight-up in cold blood-but to be set up? By people who you trusted? That's bad.
- What I learned in jail is that I can't change. I can't live a different lifestyle - this is it. This is the life that they gave and this is the life that I made.
- Somebody help me, tell me where to go from here cause even Thugs cry, but do the Lord care?
- I'm 23 years old. I might just be my mother's child, but in all reality, I'm everybody's child. Nobody raised me; I was raised in this society.
- We all gonna die, we bleed from similar veins.
- In my mind I'm a blind man doin' time.
- I'm a reflection of the community.
- I just spent 11 and a half months in a maximum-security jail, got shot five times, and was wrongly convicted of a crime I didn't commit.
- I worked hard all my life as far as this music business. I dreamed of the day when I could go to New York and feel comfortable and they could come out here and be comfortable.
- There's nobody in the business strong enough to scare me.
- Let the Lord judge the criminals.
- The only time I have problems is when I sleep.
- I just don't know how to deal with so many people giving me that much affection. I never had that in my life.
- I'll probably be punished for hard living.
- With all my fans I got a family again.
- I don't have to talk about whether or not I got raped in jail.
- If you believe in God, believe in Death Row East.
- America wants its respect.
- I never killed anybody, I never raped anybody, I never committed no crimes that weren't honorable.
- If I win and get the money, then the Oakland Police department is going to buy a boys' home, me a house, my family a house, and a Stop Police Brutality Center.
- Dre was one of my heroes in the music industry. If he's not down for his homeboys, I don't wanna be a part of him or around him.
- When you do rap albums, you got to train yourself. You got to constantly be in character.
