Kanye West
"Last night I saw you in my dreams/Now I can't wait to go to sleep/And this life is all a dream/So my real life starts when I go to sleep."
West quotes
Ya'll might as well get the music ready 'cause this is gonna take a while. When I had my accident, I found out at that moment, nothing in life is promised except death. If you have the opportunity to play this game called life, you have to appreciate every moment. A lot of people don't appreciate their moment until it's passed. And then you got to tell those Al Bundy stories: 'You remember when I...' Right now, it's my time and my moment, thanks to the fans, thanks to the accident, thanks to God, thanks to Roc-A-Fella, Jay-Z, Dame Dash, G, my mother, Rhymefest, everyone that's helped me. And I plan to celebrate and scream and pop champagne every chance I get, 'cause I'm at the Grammy's baby! I know everybody asked me the question, they wanted to know, 'What, Kan, I know he's gonna wile out, I know he's gonna do something crazy.' Everybody wanted to know what I would do, if I didn't win... I guess we'll never know!
West
"The one thing I fear for [Kanye] the most is if you keep talking about being the greatest, people eventually are going to want to watch you fail." - John Mayer (From MTV.com)




West Kanye quotes
"The clock's tickin' I just count the hours. Stop trippin' I'm trippin off the power."
West Kanye
"It don't have to be mother's day or your birthday, for me to just call and say, hey mama."
Kanye West quotes
"People talkin' shit but when the shit hits the fan, everything I'm not made me everything I am."
Kanye West
Know your worth! People always act like they're doing more for you than you're doing for them. Ask yourself this question, "Why would they do that?" Obviously, you bring something to the table for them to even do business with you
West Kanye quotes
"Told 'em I finished school, and I started my own business/They say, 'Oh you graduated?'/No, I decided I was finished/ Chasin' y'all dreams and what you've got planned/Now I spit it so hot you got tanned"
West
"You know the best medicine go to people thats payed/If Magic Johnson got a cure for AIDS and all the broke motherfuckers passed away/ You tellin me if my grandma's in the NBA, right now she would be ok?/ But since she was just a secretary workin' for the church for thirty-five years/things supposed to stop right here?"
West Kanye
"And the weather so breezy/Man why can't life always be this easy?"
Kanye West
"I know it's past visitin hours, but can I please give her these flowers?"




Kanye West quotes
"You don't remember when you was my sweetest? You don't remember I called you Reese's Pieces? 'Cause there's no wrong way to do you know what!"
Kanye West
"Little is know of Sierra Lione/And how it connects to the diamonds we own/When I speak of diamonds in this song I ain't about the ones that be glowin'/I'm talkin' bout Roc-a-Fella my home..."
West quotes
I hate the way they portray us in the media. You see a black family, it says, 'They're looting.' You see a white family, it says, 'They're looking for food.' And, you know, it's been five days [waiting for federal help] because most of the people are black. And even for me to complain about it, I would be a hypocrite because I've tried to turn away from the TV because it's too hard to watch. I've even been shopping before even giving a donation, so now I'm calling my business manager right now to see what is the biggest amount I can give, and just to imagine if I was down there, and those are my people down there. So anybody out there that wants to do anything that we can help -- with the way America is set up to help the poor, the black people, the less well-off, as slow as possible. I mean, the Red Cross is doing everything they can. We already realize a lot of people that could help are at war right now, fighting another way -- and they've given them permission to go down and shoot us! [...] George Bush doesn't care about black people.
West Kanye
I still think I am the greatest.
West Kanye quotes
"Jay's favorite line, 'Dog, in due time.' Now he look at me like, 'Damn, dog, you're where I am,' a hip-hop legend. I think I died in that accident, 'cause this must be heaven."
Kanye West
I refuse to accept other people's ideas of happiness for me. As if there's a "one size fits all" standard for happiness
Kanye West quotes
"We'll buy a lot of clothes when we don't really need 'em/Things we buy to cover up what's inside/Cause they make us hate our-self and love they wealth."
Kanye West
"It’s alright to say ‘bitch’ and ‘motherfucker' on the corner, but when you start operating on a different level you can’t talk like that. Fine, you’re trying to get some street acceptance. Now that you got that, get back to your roots. You know that’s not where you came from. You know that’s not how you were raised." - Ray West (Kanye's father) on Rolling Stone magazine
West Kanye
"Who gave Saddam anthrax, George Bush's got an answer/How to stop the Black Panthers, Ronald Regan cooked up an answer..."
