Robin Thicke quotes: on loving love, positivity, growing up Hollywood, not being driven by money, and more.

“I just want to say that dreams do come true. Don’t ever give up on your dreams. Sometimes it just takes a little bit longer for some of us.”

“The only thing that gets you through is the firm, unbreakable belief that you have something special to offer. It’s why people like Jack Nicholson make it when they’re 30 and become one of the greatest actors to ever live. I’m sure when he was 21 someone said, ‘You ain’t got it, kid!’ But there is something innate inside us that tells us to not give up. And then you get better. I’m a much better singer and performer now than I was 10 years ago. If you believe in yourself, anything’s possible.”

“Entertain the people. Give them something they’re not ready for. Make them talk.”

“When you’ve got something people need, they need it.”

“The best of the best wins. There’s no other way to put it.”

“I was seven years old the first time I saw Michael Jackson. That changed everything.”

“While other kids played with cars and toys, I listened to music all day. I wanted to sing it and learn it.”

“I’ve been influenced heavily by great soul artists. I see myself as a soul singer. I sing from my soul. I write from my soul.”

“Once you put it into song form, then it can live forever. And so the message in the song is really about the hope and the light at the end of that tunnel when you feel that you lost or you feel that you don’t know what to do next. You know, that reconnection to God or spirituality or something deeper than the surface is what brings you back home to who you really are and who you want to be.”

“People go where they love something. The industry doesn’t determine the art, the art determines the industry.”

“I write songs like ‘The Sweetest Love.’ Of course I’m a little cheesy. Love is cheesy. Love is corny. But it’s also the greatest feeling in the whole world.”

“I like to promote love and equality and righteousness and hope and all those good things, so it’s a good thing to be a part of.”

“My gift and my curse is that I really want to be loved. What drives me to make music is love—whether it’s shallow or deep or whatever. I want to do things that make people love me.”

“You have to give love to get love.”

“Being critical is not something I like to do. I like to appreciate and inspire.”

“I’ve always been the kinda person who wants to admit his faults so I can improve as a human being. So it’s like being an alcoholic. You gotta first be able to say, ‘I got problems.'”

“I’m constantly inspired.”

“I have no regrets, but I figured I don’t want to be one thing; I have to take some chances.”

“I grew up in a Hollywood family with money, so money is not the reason I make music. I’m as Hollywood as it gets. Not internally but externally—that’s my bloodline.”

“Some people go to college. For me, I studied music my whole life. That was my college.”

“I’m trying to create the world around myself to be a place of as much equality and openheartedness as possible.”

“I really try to wake up with my music the same as I do with my life, and that is with no expectations. I just feel what I feel that day and follow it.”

“You can be rich when you’re poor, poor when you’re rich. It can be raining and I can make the sun shine.”

“To be a part of your biggest days—you know, your child being conceived or born, or you walking down the aisle—there’s really nothing sweeter. That’s the truth.”

“I started songwriting and producing and singing professionally when I was 16, and I never really stopped until last year. I took some time off to just be with my son and my family. It helps you gain perspective on what’s important in life. I hadn’t gotten to take my mum on vacation for a long time, so it was really a magical trip for us. I spent so much time with my son and that just made me realize what was most important.”

“We got lucky enough to land in a place like this. We have a roof over our heads, and my children are healthy and happy. It’s what’s most important to me: my family and my music.”

“It never gets old though. Once you get a little older, where I’m at now, you just start to appreciate everything that you have instead of worrying about what you don’t.”

“We’re very lucky to have a happy, healthy family right now. And we just want to send all the love to all the first responders out there for everything they’ve been doing in helping people keep us safe. God bless you all.”

“Life is full of constant ups and downs, and all I ask for is redemption in the end.”
