The Best Kanye Quotes

Last week,The Hollywood Reporter published an interview between Kanye West and Axel Vervoordt, his design collaborator/art dealer/curator. The two discussed design inspiration and, of course, philosophy...because...it's Kanye!

In the interview, Kanye revealed that he is venturing into the world of philosophy, telling the Hollywood Reporter: ‘I’m writing a philosophy book right now called Break the Simulation.’ What this book will include is anyone's guess but one thing's for sure: it will be quite a read.

Kanye also said ‘a designer told me that my wife was a master of light and I was a master of time. How to use time is equal to being someone who can cut a diamond. The ability to preserve time is more valuable than the ability to preserve a diamond because time is our most valuable resource. So using something timeless to remind us of what time is, is a good bar.’ There you go guys, how to use time according to Kanye.

Here are a few other absolute corkers from the interview:

On Kim: ‘Even with my wife, I see her as a representation, as a Marie Antoinette of our time.’

On himself: ‘I don't wish to be number one anymore, I wish to be water. I wish to be closer to UNICEF or something where I can take the information that I have and help as many people as possible, not to just shove it into a brand.’

On being like Stephen Hawking: ‘I feel like Stephen Hawking. He changed his ideas and his theories all the time. After proving something right, he proved something wrong, right? Because there is no wrong or right, it's bipolarity, it is both sides.’

On his fashion label: ‘There are just a lot of words that I want to remove when you think about a company, like the word company. I like the word community better. I don't like the word brand because we don't use branding.’

And this: ‘I'm only 4 years old.’

Yesterday Kanye also returned to Twitter and wasted no time dropping some insightful (and random) thoughts to his 3.82 million followers.
