“Love is everything in my book. You can have as much money as you want, but without love how happy can you be? Because if you try to buy it, it’s not real.” —Eve

“I would take book smarts over street smarts if I had to make a choice. Book smarts could get you to be the CEO of a company, be like Donald Trump . . . I don’t know if street smarts could get you anywhere but jail. You can’t retire on street smarts but you can on book smarts.” —Ice T

“Don’t be no follower, man, ’cause you’ll go down fast. You gotta do things for yourself. Think for yourself. Know right from wrong. ’Cause that’s what I had to do. I had to learn right from wrong.” —Raekwon of Wu Tang Clan
