Zitat des Tages von Michael Jackson:
When I see children, I see the face of God. That's why I love them so much. That's what I see.
Because I think every child star suffers through this period because you're not the cute and charming child that you were. You start to grow, and they want to keep you little forever.
I've helped many, many, many children, thousands of children, cancer kids, leukemia kids.
I'm just like anyone. I cut and I bleed. And I embarass easily.
I just wish I could understand my father.
My mother's wonderful. To me she's perfection.
But I will never stop helping and loving people the way Jesus said to.
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 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'm never pleased with anything, I'm a perfectionist, it's part of who I am.
The Bee Gees who are brilliant, I just love great music.
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.
If you enter this world knowing you are loved and you leave this world knowing the same, then everything that happens in between can be dealt with.
People write negatives things, cause they feel that's what sells. Good news to them, doesn't sell.
Well, especially now I come to realize - and then - I would do my schooling which was three hours with a tutor and right after that I would go to the recording studio and record, and I'd record for hours and hours until it's time to go to sleep.
Everyone who knows me will know the truth, which is that my children come first in my life and that I would never harm any child.
Why can't you share your bed? The most loving thing to do is to share your bed with someone. It's very charming. It's very sweet. It's what the whole world should do.
They did it to try and belittle me, to try and to take away my pride. But I went through the whole system with them. And at the end, I - I wanted the public to know that I was okay, even though I was hurting.
Children show me in their playful smiles the divine in everyone. This simple goodness shines straight from their hearts and only asks to be loved.
You know, let's put it this way, if all the people in Hollywood who have had plastic surgery, if they went on vacation, there wouldn't be a person left in town.
I rememeber 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.
There were times when I had great times with my brothers, pillow fights and things, but I was, used to always cry from loneliness.
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.
Yeah, Wacko Jacko, where did that come from? Some English tabloid. I have a heart and I have feelings. I feel that when you do that to me. It's not nice.
Me and Janet really are two different people.
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.
Please keep an open mind and let me have my day in court.
Before I would hurt a child, I would slit my wrists.
I have a skin disorder that destroys the pigmentation of my skin, it's something that I cannot help, OK?
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.
Well, you don't get to do things that other children get to do, having friends and slumber parties and buddies. There were none of that for me. I didn't have friends when I was little. My brothers were my friends.
I'm happy to be alive, I'm happy to be who I am.
And I remember going to the record studio and there was a park across the street and I'd see all the children playing and I would cry because it would make me sad that I would have to work instead.
Just because it's in print doesn't mean it's the gospel.
Let us dream of tomorrow where we can truly love from the soul, and know love as the ultimate truth at the heart of all creation.
I was a veteran, before I was a teenager.
