As Prince once sung in Let’s Go Crazy, ‘Dearly beloved. We are gathered here today. To get through this thing called life.’ He helped his fans navigate their way through ‘this thing called life’ with his music. Always innovative, forever pushing boundaries and seeking to get to the very heart of the melody.

It was a year ago today that the singer was found dead at his Paisley Park recording studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota from a fentanyl overdose. He was just 57-years-old.

To mark the first anniversary of his death, we have gathered up quotes where he passed on his wisdom, inspired us and taught us how to be better people.

RIP, Prince. You still rock our world.
