On Ciara,

“I feel like everything happened for a reason,” he said. “I’m happy with life now. I’m happy with life, period, even with the end of a ­relationship.”

“I’m just not going to settle for anything, you know? Even in my life now, I know I can be a better person. I ain’t giving up on myself, so if you give up on me, I ain’t got nothing else to say for you. Because if you give up on ­something that’s real, it wasn’t real to you.”
