"I feel like Harriet Tubman, except I am trying to free people through underground music, to free themselves creatively and inspirationally.””I really just want to encourage and inspire people to use their freedom in a positive way and in a way that is inspiring to other people. I want to continue to pass down the seeds of change within the world. I think that it can start with just one person. Just like a rumor can get carried on, so can inspiration.””I just want to be that person that is always constantly aware of my many gifts and talents. I just want to be able to use them to the best of my ability and to never hold back.””It’s up to me to help change the world, I cannot look at everybody else, I can only do what I can do.””When I am dead and gone, I want people to know that I tried to change the world through my heart.”

Happy 28th Birthday to musician & Q.U.E.E.N. Janelle Monae (b. December 1, 1985)

"I never wish to be easily defined. I’d rather float over other people’s minds as something strictly fluid and non-perceivable; more like a transparent, paradoxically iridescent creature rather than an actual person."
Franz Kafka; from a diary entry dated 23 March 1914.  (via tobia)
