1. Love yourself, speak yourself

“No matter who you are, where you’re from, your skin color, your gender identity, just speak yourself. Find your name and find your voice by speaking yourself.”

2. Honestly, same

“The fans don’t hurt me, I hurt myself.”

3. Lyrics to live by

“Even if you’re not perfect, you’re limited edition.”

4. So show me, I’ll show you

Please use me. Please use BTS to love yourself. Because you guys taught me how to love myself.”

5. Fame can be a hard pill to swallow

“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’s 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.”

6. But after all these years, BTS remains the same

“We’re still the same boys from six years ago. We still have the same dreams, we still have the same feelings, we still have the same thoughts. Let’s keep dreaming of the best dreams together.”

7. RM’s musings are the reason why ARMY can never miss a VLIVE

Life is a sculpture that you cast as you make mistakes and learn from them.”

8. A whole new meaning to ‘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.”

9. Happiness isn’t what you think it is

“Happiness is not something that you have to achieve. You can still feel happy during the process of achieving something.”

10. Raise your hand if BTS changed your life.

“If we helped your dream and your life a bit by our existence, our music, our performance, our pictures or videos, even if it’s not big, if we could reduce your pain from 100 to 99, 98 or 97, that makes our existence worthy.”

No matter how you look at it, these RM quotes prove that the “God of Destruction” loves BTS ARMY. Whether he’s trying to get you to see the beauty within yourself or he’s just getting something off his chest, RM’s words can lift the spirits of any fan, no matter how dark their day has been. So happy birthday, RM. I hope your special day treats you as well as you have treated ARMY for the past six years.
