As BTS leader, RM has been looked up not only because of his talent but also his outlook on life. He has been inspiring many people, especially the ARMYs, through his lyrics, speeches, and interviews. Here are his six quotes anyone can learn from BTS RM.
Music unites us
At Rose Bowl concert, RM mentioned that despite all differences, ARMYs and BTS are one in music.
“Wherever you’re from, whatever you speak, however old you are, in this Rose Bowl, tonight we are one. We speak the same thing, the same voice, the same language. This is community, what we call community.”RM
Music breaks boundaries
During RM’s acceptance speech at Variety’s award show, he thanked ARMYs and people in the music industry and emphasized that music has the power to break boundaries.
“One thing was very clear, and it’s even clearer thanks to you guys, and thanks to Variety, is that music has truly the power to overcome various kinds of barriers including languages, nationalities, and many boundaries.”RM
Learn from mistakes
BTS RM undoubtedly inspired many people through his speech at the United Nations. He reminded all fans that faults and mistakes do not define someone. Instead, we have to learn from the mistakes and keep growing up.
“And maybe, I made a mistake yesterday, but yesterday’s me is still me. Today, I am who I am with all of my faults and my mistakes. Tomorrow, I might be a tiny bit wiser, and that would be me too. These faults and mistakes are what I am, making up the brightest stars of the constellations of my life.”RM
You can’t please everyone
RM realized that as an artist, he cannot please everyone. Some people love him, but there are also haters. In an interview with Dazed, a fashion magazine, he confessed about this.
“I’ve had to accept that everyone cannot love me. Because when there’s love, there’s hate; when there’s light, there’s dark. But it was really hard to accept as an artist that there are a lot of people that hate me but, on the other side, there are many more people who love me. I think everyone goes through that.”RM
On one occasion, BTS RM reminded all fans that life is not always easy, but in all hardship, you can still feel happy.
“Happiness isn’t something you have to achieve. You can feel happy while in the process of achieving something.”RM
What future means
RM has shared what the word “future” means in Korean. He stated that life we are living now is the future because how we live now will affect our future.
“In Korean, the word future is made up of two parts. The first part means “not,” and the second means “to come.” In that sense future means something that will not come. This is to say: the future is now. And our now is us living our future.”RM
