Quotes by Patrice O'Neal
The case is I talk for a living, so I should be able to say anything I want to say regardless of how you feel. What we’re starting to deal with now is your opinion matters, but to be quite honest, your opinion means nothing.— Patrice O'Neal
Just making the crowd laugh is not really doing things for me anymore. That’s just knowing how to kill; I’ve learned how to kill – but also learned when a crowd’s laughter is meaningful.— Patrice O'Neal
I’ve still got that little freedom part of me that wants to have a car that looks really sexy.— Patrice O'Neal
I don’t go to any sexy places to eat where they give you half a lamb chop and one bean. I like going, ‘Uhhh, I’m done’ when I eat.— Patrice O'Neal
I like to be loved or hated – I don’t like mediocre. So I’d rather have the entire crowd hate me than to have 90% hate me.— Patrice O'Neal
