I’m not of a generation that can truly appreciate Prince, but I understand and respect that the artist I love all stand on his shoulders.

There is no word on what the cause of death may have been, and being that Prince was notoriously private no one knows, yet. In March, it was announced that he will release a memoir in the fall of 2017.

Here are 5 quotes we will remember the icon by:

“Despite everything, no one can dictate who you are to other people.”

“A strong spirit transcends rules.”

“The gatekeepers must change.”

“Too much freedom can lead to the soul’s decay.”

“Albums…remember those? Albums still matter. Like books and black lives albums still matter.”
