Quotes of Michael Jackson

August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009

Because I wanted to have a place that I could create everything that I that I never had as a child. So, you see rides. You see animals. There’s a movie theater.



Because parents have power over children. They feel they have to do what their parents say. But the love of money is the root of all evil. And this is a sweet child. And to see him turn like this, this isn’t him. This is not him.



Before I would hurt a child,
I would slit my wrists.



But I will never stop helping
and loving people
the way Jesus said to.

Everything that I love is behind those gates. We have elephants, and giraffes, and crocodiles, and every kind of tigers and lions. And – and we have bus loads of kids, who don’t get to see those things. They come up sick children, and enjoy it.



I love my family very much. I wish I could see them a little more often than I do. But we understand because we’re a show business family and we all work.



I remember one time we were getting ready to go to South America and everything was packed up and in the car ready to go and I hid and I was crying because I really did not want to go, I wanted to play. I did not want to go.



I was a veteran,
before I was a teenager.



I will say again that I have never, and would never, harm a child. It sickens me that people have written untrue things about me.



I’m a black American, I am proud of my race. I am proud of who I am. I have a lot of pride and dignity.



I’m happy to be alive,
I’m happy to be who I am.
I’m just like anyone.
I cut and I bleed.
And I embarass easily.



I’m never pleased with anything,
I’m a perfectionist,
it’s part of who I am.



Michael Jackson
