“Haters never win. I just think that’s true about life, because negative energy always costs in the end.”

“Here’s what I’ll say. I believe that nothing is certain and fixed, so you have to make the best efforts to treasure things, and not fall into the trap of letting things be destroyed. Because they can be.”

“Some things have to remain sacred.” [on love, relationship and privacy].”

“Never stop. Never stop fighting. Never stop dreaming.”

“For myself, for a long time… maybe I felt inauthentic or something, I felt like my voice wasn’t worth hearing, and I think everyone’s voice is worth hearing. So if you’ve got something to say, say it from the rooftops.”

“We’re all capable of courage and heroism. We’ve all experienced joy, we’ve all felt pain. And every time I go to work, that’s really what I’m trying to communicate.”

“Music, without question, is my biggest inspiration. If I could only make people feel what I feel from this music then I’ll have done something worthwhile.”

“I’m called ‘Uncle Yay Monster’ because when we run, she basically wants to run as fast as me but she can’t, so after a while I just pick her up and she screams: ‘Yay!’ It’s exhausting, but enormous fun.”
