“After I lost my mother, there was times I felt like, I would put my life at risk. I felt like sometimes I didn’t have something to live for. Now I have two really special people [Kardashian and North] to live for.” – Kanye West

“I think I’m a better human being because of [Kardashian]and because of my daughter.” – Kanye West

“When I look in North’s eyes, I’m happy about every mistake I’ve ever made. I’m happy that I fought to bring some type of reality to this world we choose to stay in right now, driven by brands and corporations,” – Kanye West

“We talked about her not having this child. … She brought North into the world even when I didn’t want to. She stood up and she protected that child.” – Kanye West

“People say it takes a village to raise a child. People ask me how my daughter is doing. She’s only doing good if your daughter’s doing good. We’re all one family.” – Kanye West

“People say to me ‘you’re successful, what are you crying about?’. I’m crying about the people. I’m crying about their daughters. Our daughters, as one family. What good is it. What good is anything that everyone can’t have. Every ism. They think we’re done with racism. What about elitism, what about separatism, what about classism? That’s all.” – Kanye West

“Look, I can be married to the most beautiful woman in the world, and I am. I can have the most beautiful little daughter in the world, and I have that. But I’m nothing if I can’t be me. If I can’t be true to myself, they don’t mean anything.” – Kanye West
