    Arrow MJJC Legacy Team Project: Learning Lessons from Michael Jackson - Fact File



    Learning Lessons from Michael Jackson





    In this thread you can see a full list of what Michael loved, liked, admired and so on. It is meant as a guiding reference for those who want to learn more about him, follow his steps, as well as find out more about him as a person, too. I re-vamped,a newly organized fact-file with added & newer information, which came from MJ's official books & his own words in interviews through-out the years.

    This FACT-file About Michael Jackson will be updated regularly, researching and finding more that generally inspired Michael Jackson and what he admired out of new information we find and you will be able to add here. I worked many hours a day digging up and researching the information listed below. It was fun as well as interesting to find out so much about Michael Jackson.
    Special Thank You to all those who contributed & to those who do so in the future to come. :)

    We encourage you to add more, so that we will have an amazing file full of great information to learn about new interesting things Michael has left us! Keep Michaeling!

    In this thread you are able to discuss the facts, add new facts or just tell what you've learned!


    "Study the greats and become greater."
    -Michael Jackson

    Default Re: MJJC Legacy Team Project: Learning Lessons from Michael Jackson - Fact File

    "[My] albums should be for all races, all tastes in music," Michael has said. And in a 1995 statement in the New York Times: "I am the voice of the accused and the attacked, I am the voice of everyone. I am the skinhead, I am the Jew, I am the black man, I am the white man."

I researched as much as possible,but it's up to the MJJC members to add more if they'd like too. Could you Please link the source for the quote in your other post. Thank you.

    "He Loved to Read" 1.02.2011

    "Your thoughts are as free as any bird" ~ Michael J. Jackson

    Michael loved to read, many had testified on his reading habit, and also was caught in the bookstore. Michael Jackson's Lawyer, Bob Sanger, Talks to West Coast Sound About the Pop Star, His Life -- and His Reading Habits [here are few excerpt of the article]


    "We talked about psychology, Freud and Jung, Hawthorne, sociology, black history and sociology dealing with race issues. But he was very well read in the classics of psychology and history and literature."

    "He loved to read. He had over 10,000 books at his house."

    "And there were places that he liked to sit, and you could see the books with his bookmarks in it, with notes and everything in it where he liked to sit and read. And I can tell you from talking to him that he had a very - especially for someone who was self-taught, as it were, and had his own reading list - he was very well-read. And I don't want to say that I'm well-read, but I've certainly read a lot, let's put it that way, and I enjoy philosophy and history and everything myself, and it was very nice to talk to him, because he was very intellectual, and he liked to talk about those things. But he didn't flaunt it, and it was very seldom that he would initiate the conversation like that, but if you got into a conversation like that with him, he was there."

    "And few people really had the opportunity the have these intellectual discussions about great thinkers and writers. Freud and Jung - go down the street and try and find five people who can talk about Freud and Jung."


    The Bodyguards' testimony of Michael's reading habit !

    source: abcnews.go.com/GMA


    A: "Anytime he was going into a bookstore he wasn't buying one or two books. No. You know, he was easily walking out with..."..thousands.."

    Q: Did he read all of the books that he bought?

    A: "I believe so.."As much knowledge, as being around him, we learned something every day just going to work. I'll tell you that right now"

    A: "I think he was also just very big on knowledge, and that was the way he ...fed his kids that, you know very big on them being educated ... very..."..very special"..very intelligent"



    A Story from The Strand Bookstore

    Prince Michael brought over an oversized book on collectable toys, barely able to carry it. He said in the cutest little voice; "Dad, can I have this" Michael lovingly smiled and asked if he was going to read it. He replied, "Yes."

    He wanted books on black folk music, books by Roald Dahl (including James and the Giant Peach), and something on Versailles. I would send my troops to look for the books and hand the findings to Jesus. On a previous visit, my dad had helped him, and he picked out books on Howard Hughes, dictionaries and first edition children's books.

    ..he spent $6,000 in books and allowed anyone in his group to take books. Although the people in his entourage did choose some, they did not seem as excited about shopping for books.

    Michael Jackson, The Bookworm

    "He was a longtime and valued customer," a store representative of art and architecture bookstore Hennessey + Ingalls said Thursday. "We'll miss him."

    "He loved the poetry section," Dave Dutton said as Dirk chimed in that Ralph Waldo Emerson was Jackson's favorite. "I think you would find a great deal of the transcendental, all-accepting philosophy in his lyrics."



    "It was Rose who instilled in me a love of books
    and literature that sustains me today.
    I read everything I could get my hands on.
    New cities meant new places to shop.
    We loved to shop, especially in bookstores and department stores,"
    ~ Michael Jackson, Moonwalk

    "She [Miss Rose Fine] taught me the wonderful world of books and reading
    and I wouldn't be the same person if it wasn't for her."
    ~ Michael Jackson



    MJ: "I watch cartoons. I love cartoons. I play video games. Sometimes I read."
    Q: "You mean you read books?"
    MJ: "Yeah. I love to read short stories and everything."
    Q: "Any in particular?"
    MJ: "Somerset Maugham.. Whitman. Hemingway. Twain."



    "I love to read.
    I wish I could advise more people to read.
    There’s a whole other world in books.
    If you can’t afford to travel, you travel mentally through reading.
    You can see anything and go any place you want to in reading."

    ~ Michael Jackson, 1984

    WOW

    I 'bumped' into another AWESOME THREAD here... Funny, when I read the list of things that Michael loved posted by Soul dreamer I was gawking and screaming pointing at the screen that I loved a lot of things (Music- books- tastes) that we have in 'common' and I didn't even knew Michael liked them too...

    I do wanna add here that this is also one of Michael's fave books...





    Keep the excellent legacy work you do, lovelies
