James Brown
I'm the most sampled and stolen. What's mine is mine, and what's yours is mine, too ... I got a song about that ... But I'm never gonna release it. Don't want a war with the rappers. If it wasn't good, they wouldn't steal it.
Brown quotes
This is an issue couples have to be straight on and agree on before they walk down that aisle; otherwise there is no way their marriage will survive.
Brown
Get up,
Get on up.
Stay on the scene.
Get on up,
Like a Sex Machine.
Get on up,
Get up.
Shake your arm,
Then use your form.
Stay on the scene, like a Sex Machine.
You gotta have the feeling,
Sure as you're born.




Brown James quotes
Watch me ... watch me!
I got it!
Watch me ... I got it.
HEY!
Brown James
Come here sister... Papa's in the swing.
He ain't too hip... about that new breed babe.
He ain't no drag,
Papa's got a brand new bag.
James Brown quotes
I'm going away tonight.
James Brown
When I hold you in my arms,
I know that I can't do no wrong.
And when I hold you in my arms,
My love can't do me no harm.
Brown James quotes
To make it in life, you and your wife need to be in the same business. That has been my problem all along. My wives didn't know what I was doing. I would come back home from the road to a stranger. That's no good.
Brown
Hair is the first thing. And teeth the second. Hair and teeth. A man got those two things he's got it all.
Brown James
Don't terrorize. Organize. Don't burn. Give kids a chance to learn ... The real answer to race problems in this country is education. Not burning and killing. Be ready. Be qualified. Own something. Be somebody. That's Black Power.
James Brown
Look a'here, some people say we got a lot of malice
Some say it's a lotta nerve
I say we won't quit moving
Til we get what we deserve.
We've been 'buked and we've been scourned
We've been treated bad, talked about
As just as sure as you're born
But just as sure as it take
Two eyes to make a pair, huh
Brother, we can't quit until we get our share.




James Brown quotes
When I'm on stage, I'm trying to do one thing: bring people joy. Just like church does. People don't go to church to find trouble, they go there to lose it.
James Brown
Sometimes you struggle so hard to feed your family one way, you forget to feed them the other way, with spiritual nourishment. Everybody needs that.
Brown quotes
When you kiss me,
And ya miss me.
You hold me tight,
Make everything all right.
I break out - in a cold sweat heh!
Brown James
This is a mans world.
This is a mans world.
But it would be nothing, nothing
Without a women or a girl.
Brown James quotes
A colored is a very frightened-to-death Afro-American. A Negro is one that makes it in the system, and he wants to be white. A nigger, he's loud and boisterous, wants to be seen. Nobody likes a nigger. A black man has pride. He wants to build, he wants to make his race mean something. Wants to have a culture and art forms. And he's not prejudiced. I am a black American man. Now you go ahead and print it.
James Brown
Our love is kind of stalled, baby.
But it ain't about the sex.
I'd trade the roses and the negligees
If we could just connect.
I go deeper when you look into my eyes.
There's a place where neither one of us can hide.
And it's up to us to reinvent the game.
Love it when you call my name.
James Brown quotes
I would warn against anyone marrying a person with more than a ten-year age difference. It almost never works. It is difficult to find things to talk about, to use similar reference points, and to operate at the same speed of life. Another problem is that both sides usually don't want the same things at the same time.
James Brown
Try me. Try me.
And your love will always be true.
Oh I need you (I need you).
Hold me. Hold me.
I want you right here by my side.
Hold me. Hold me.
And your love we won't hide.
