I don’t worry. I don’t doubt. I’m daring. I’m a rebel.
– Mr. T

God is on my side, and that’s all I need. I get up in the morning, I pray to God. I don’t pray to the president, the governor, the mayor, no black caucus, no this and that. I pray to God, and that’s the end of it.
You might not have the things you want, but if you check carefully, you got all you need.
