(On facing mortality) “You know, I used to pray to God to deliver me from pain, and then I had the worst pain inflicted on me, unimaginable pain, so I stopped praying for that. I know it’s cliche, but what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. I’m proof of that. Now I’m just not scared of death. Everything I do is as if I already passed away. Every move I make. I live like I’ve already passed away—like I have nothing to lose. I’m not living particularly to make money or to have a song go number one. I’m more living to carve my place in history. The best way to do that is to help other people. You can’t make it just by helping yourself. The more people you can help, the better chance you have of being remembered.”
