Famous Quotes By Keith Sweat

“You can’t stop loving or wanting to love because when its right, it’s the best thing in the world. When you’re in a relationship and it’s good, even if nothing else in your life is right, you feel like your whole world is complete.”

“ I think the music now is more influenced by what I’ve done and what people like myself and other people have done, like Charlie Wilson and Luther and other people like that. I think our influence is more wide spread because you’ll hear certain sounds or certain samples coming from things we’ve done. I think we influenced what’s going on now. They’ve taken it to another level, but our influence is out there.”

“It’s kind of hard to say I approached an album in a certain way. I just go in there and say “Let me write a song, let me try to write a hit record”. There’s no real approach. It’s just what feels good, let me listen to some tracks, if the track feels good I think of what I can think of or what hook or verses I can come up with. I just approach it like I want to do a good song, not like “Ok I gotta approach this album like this because I approached the last album like that”. I don’t think like that.”

“To make great music, staying power. Giving people what they want. I think that’s what I want my legacy to be, that “Yo, he put out good music, he had staying power, every time we see him perform he did a great show, he’s a good brother”. That’s what I want my legacy to be.”
