“I’m going to be so honest with you: I don’t know Yes Carter III, Yes Carter II, Yes Carter One from Carter IV. And that is just the honest truth my God. You could lie, you could ask me [about] Such a song, I wouldn’t even know what we’re talking about. So it’s not important to me at all.”
Then, he proceeded to examine his hardworking career and record.
“I work every day, brother—every day. And also, I always look at it as part of the curse of the gift and the curse. I believe so [God] I was blessed with this wonderful mind, but it would not take [me] a wonderful memory to remember this wonderful beauty.”

“The motivation is to show them why I’m still so human… When you’re an artist – a true artist like myself, I was born this way. So I don’t think that real artists and pioneers, they don’t quit. They died doing this.”
