Kanye West is a phenomenally talented entertainer and loved by millions. Charles Manson is a failed wanna-be pop star and infamous murderer who we hope will remain locked up for the rest of his life. The two can't possibly be more different, other than sharing a propensity for spouting near-nonsensical egomaniacal quotes. Take a look at the examples below. Can you tell which quotes were uttered by Kanye and which ones came from Manson?
- "Nothing in life is promised except death."
- "No sense makes sense."
- "I'm like a machine. I'm a robot. You cannot offend a robot."
- "I can't judge any of you. I have no malice against you and no ribbons for you. But I think that it is high time that you all start looking at yourselves, and judging the lie that you live in."
- "One day the light will shine through, and one day people will understand everything I ever did."
- "Everything I'm not made my everything I am."
- "The real strong have no need to prove it to the phonies."
- "I am not a fan of books. I would never want a book's autograph. I am a proud nonreader of books."
- "I don't know what 'my way' is. Everybody keeps telling me I got all these things. I read the other day where I had magical powers. I told everybody in the chapel 'Zap, zap, zap, zap!' I said 'Where's my magical powers at?' Well, you can't believe what you read in the press. I ain't got no magical powers or mystical trips or anything like that. It's kind of silly."
- "I live and breathe every element in life."
- "There's all kinds of Jesus. There's a black Jesus down in Florida, he's having a good time. There's a Mexican Jesus down in Mexico, I mean there's all kinds of Jesus. There's a Jewish Jesus."
- "The media crucify me like they did Christ."
- "When someone comes up and says something like, 'I am a god,' everybody says 'Who does he think he is?' I just told you who I thought I was. A god. I just told you."
