Some of Michael Jackson's quotes.........
"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."
"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."
"I'm happy to be alive, I'm happy to be who I am."
"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"
"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."
ENJOY HIS "MOONWALK"
