#Quote
1My dad worked two jobs his whole life, and so I told him he's the reason I have 20 jobs.
2Everyone should have the opportunity to get affordable, quality health coverage.
3My family is a praying family, a Christian family.
4I thank Him every chance I get - on my knees praying.
5I'm from there. You know, when you grow up with these people and see them every day and then you look at the numbers it was easy; it was a no-brainer. And when Sony took a look, it was a no-brainer to them, too.
6It's a burden trying to keep a secret. It's hard. It probably takes more out of you trying to hold it and keep it than it does for you to really let it out.
7Sometimes friends move apart from each other for whatever reason.
8Research your idea. See if there's a demand. A lot of people have great ideas, but they don't know if there's a need for it. You also have to research your competition.
9When a woman is frustrated, and it's your wife, you as the husband get that frustration.
10Athletes don't like to get up early, but it never bothered me.
11I think that there are always goals for me to try to achieve, and I'm going to work toward those goals.
12I respect women to the utmost.
13My work ethic is from sports.
14My father is my idol, so I always did everything like him. He used to work two jobs and still come home happy every night.
15My having HIV has no bearing on my business.
16The real story is that I had unprotected sex. That's that. That's easy.
17When I grew up, my family, we sat down, all of us to watch 'Good Times,' 'Sanford and Son,' all those shows that were out at that time.
18I get up 5:30-6 every morning. I'm in the gym. I run a couple miles.
19I love putting people to work of color.
20I grew up a Detroit Tigers fan, and now to be an owner of the Dodgers is amazing.
21I got blessed from my mom. She's the personality; she's the one who smiled, so I took on part of her, and who also wanted to help and save the world. Then I took on part of my dad, who is tough.
22I do not have bad days. I don't wake up in the morning and think that I'm going to get AIDS. I don't dream bad dreams about it. If I did, I'd be giving in to the negativity.
23I want to be here for a long time, so I am going to do everything I have to do to be here. And I want to walk my daughter down the aisle and give her away to somebody some day. I want to make sure I am still here to make sure my two young sons become men.
24I'm the one who started redevelopment in South Los Angeles, not Jan Perry. I did it. I love Jan. She's a good person, and she did a wonderful job with what she did downtown, but in L.A., South L.A., I'm the one.
25I met wonderful people playing in the NBA. Whether it is the officials, the scorekeepers, all the people who work for the NBA, not just for the Lakers, but I'm talking about just for the league itself.
26No one plans to get sick or hurt - I certainly didn't - but most people will need medical care at some point in their lives.
27I've always been a leader my whole life. I've always led. I didn't know how to do anything else.
28When you are honest and open with young people, they let you in.
29I try to hire people I don't have to motivate. But I do motivate the people working with and for me.
30Magic is who I am on the basketball court. Earvin is who I am.
31ObamaCare is working. I talk to a lot of CEOs of hospitals. It is working.
32My dad was my hero. And I got my personality from my mother.
33Urban America is like a foreign country in a sense.
34I'm building shopping centers and movie theaters in the inner cities. So that means supplying jobs and letting blacks understand that we have to build our communities back, not looking to anybody else.
35The gay community has taken care of their issues and problems in terms of HIV/AIDS. They have done an incredible job. We as heterosexuals need to learn from the gay community because they have rallied together. They have sent a lot of information out there. They go get tested.
36I'm far from being a homosexual.
37For a long time, I'd work until 10 or 11. When I work, I'm on. I'm 'Magic.' I love it, but it takes a lot out of me.
38I'm the one who will take chances, not worry about the backlash.
39I am and will always be a Laker for life.
40A woman always remembers. Remember that.
41The audience likes their emotions to be touched. They want to laugh and cry and feel good.
42You know I was a shy guy and people didn't know that and still don't know it today. I'm sure basketball brought my shyness out because of the fact that you have to do interviews, and that people are always talking to you in terms of the fans and everything.
43My diet is mostly chicken and fish. I make sure I get a lot of vegetables, a lot of fruit. I am a big fruit man, I am a vegetable man anyway. And I also get a lot of rest. That's the key I may be up early, but I'm in bed early too.
44The first year was hard for me to deal with. The second year was a little bit easier, but still difficult. It took me five years to get it out of me. It was a difficult moment, a difficult time.
45My first and only experience in baseball, the coach signed me up; he didn't tell me there's a thing called the curveball. I didn't know that. So the ball's coming at me and I start backing out, and then it broke inside. And the umpire says, 'Strike one!' And I'm saying, 'How is that a strike? It almost hit me!'
46I make sure I get a lot of vegetables, a lot of fruit. I am a big fruit man; I am a vegetable man, anyway.
47I don't care who is attacking my son. I still support him; I still love him.
48I'm the biggest music lover in the world. I mean, I have seen everybody. I went on tour with Michael Jackson and the Jacksons four or five times.
49All students should have the opportunity to receive their high school diplomas and be fully prepared for college or the workplace.
50I'm glad that Gov. Scott down in Florida accepted ObamaCare, because it will work.
51I am a businessman. This is what I do each and every day. I love it. I love coming to work. I never have a bad day.
52I love to be in the ballpark. I love to just go in and enjoy a great baseball game, a great pitchers' duel.
53The important thing is this Just because I'm doing well doesn't mean that they're going to do well if they get HIV. A lot of people have died since I have announced. This disease is not going anywhere.
54Every kid, every minority kid can be so successful if they focus on their education.
55A lot of black guys always ask me, 'Did Larry Bird really play that good?' I said, 'Larry Bird is so good it's frightening.'
56I like to take walks in the park by myself, where no one can bother me and I can think.
57Life doesn't stop because something happens to you.
58People don't stop eating, and they don't stop drinking coffee.
59People see me high-fivin' and smiling on the court, and they don't think that's me. But it is. I just want to go out and be myself.
60I'm a businessman, and what I know is numbers and business.
61When you are a successful business person, you are only as good as your team. No one can do every deal alone.
62I have a fond place in my heart for Seattle, so I hope that an NBA team comes back to this great city, this great sports city.
63I guess when people ask what is the biggest transition to the NBA from college, it is definitely defense and the mental part.
64I often tell people when you make a mistake, you not only hurt yourself, but you hurt the ones that love you.
65Young people want you to be real with them.
66When you think about the NASCAR brand, it resonates everywhere. They have the No. 1 sports brand.
67I wanted to do two things when I was growing up, about your age. I wanted to play in the NBA, and I wanted to be a businessman after my basketball career was over, and that is what I am doing now.
68Magic is crazy. He is that crazy wild guy on the basketball court that is very intense and very serious. He is the guy who lives and eats and breathes basketball.
69I'm not cured, but the HIV is asleep deep in my body.
70I'm gonna love my son until the end.
71If somebody says no to you, or if you get cut, Michael Jordan was cut his first year, but he came back and he was the best ever. That is what you have to have. The attitude that I'm going to show everybody, I'm going to work hard to get better and better.
72I tell you, it's funny because the only time I think about HIV is when I have to take my medicine twice a day.
73Ask not what your teammates can do for you. Ask what you can do for your teammates.
74Manhood is taking care of your family and being able to bless other people. Not yourself - but whether you can bless other people.
75I tell people to look at me and understand that everybody first told me that I couldn't be a 6-foot, 9-inch point guard, and I proved them wrong. Then they told me I couldn't be a businessman and make money in urban America, and I proved them wrong. And they thought I couldn't win all these championships, and I proved them wrong there as well.
76To me, everything is wonderful. Life is wonderful.
77I'll hear people say every so often that having HIV must not be so bad - 'Just look at Magic and how well he's doing.'
78Magic is crazy. He is that crazy wild guy on the basketball court that is very intense and very serious. He is the guy who lives and eats and breathes basketball. Magic is a guy who would stand for nothing but winning and really prepared himself as well as he prepared his team. Earvin is the complete opposite.
79I look three to five years ahead, not 10 years behind.
80My father was a great example of a strong and good man and Christian man, and my mother taught all my six sisters how to be young ladies and mothers and how to take care of your family. And so I think they were - they still are - great examples for all of us to their kids and to the world, too.
81I like things going on in my life. I don't want to be on a beach somewhere just relaxing.
82I enjoy being the messenger for God in terms of letting people know about HIV and AIDS.
83You can't get AIDS from a hug or a handshake or a meal with a friend.
84I motivate others by making sure that they understand to go after their dreams and don't let anyone tell you you can't. If you are motivated enough and put the work in that you can achieve anything in life that you set your mind to.
85All kids need is a little help, a little hope and somebody who believes in them.
86I have to tell you, I'm proudest of my life off the court. There will always be great basketball players who bounce that little round ball, but my proudest moments are affecting people's lives, effecting change, being a role model in the community.
87Just celebrate the life you had, not the life you could've had.
88Everyone thought I was going to die like a year later, they didn't know. So I helped educate sports, and then the world, that a man living with HIV can play basketball. He's not going to give it to anybody by playing basketball.
89When you face a crisis, you know who your true friends are.
90When I first found out I had HIV, I had to find somebody who was living with it, who could help me understand my journey and what I was going to have to deal with day-to-day. I found out that a person named Elizabeth Frazier was living with AIDS at the time, and so I called her up, and she took a meeting with me.
91The best doctors and medicine in the world can't save you if you don't do what you're supposed to do.
92I'm at peace with myself. The main thing is not letting people dictate what I do or what I am.
93God blessed me with two unbelievable parents, and I am just like both of them. I have the smile and charisma of my mother and the big heart of my mom, because she wants to save the world and help the world, so I am just like her.
94If you're a competitive person, that stays with you. You don't stop. You always look over your shoulder.
95As an athlete, I understood the value of my health insurance. I knew that in my profession, injuries were common and could happen at any time.
