From the film Baby Boy (2001), written and directed by John Singleton:
Jody: Today I begin a new life. I am the master of my abilities… and today will be a great and beautiful day. Pea, are you a buyer or a seller?
Sweet Pea: What?
Jody: Look at yourself. How many millionaires you got on? I count at least three.
Sweet Pea: What are you talking about?
Jody: Pea! Look around, man. You see what I see? I see money. Look at my man over there selling T-shirts. A brother selling pies and papers. Cake Man over there. Everybody moving, making money. Right? While we’re standing still, being broke. I figured all this s*** out, man. All this. This world moves forward through transactions. Commerce, *****. The exchange of goods and services. All the real ballin’, successful folks are sellers. All the broke-ass people playing catch-up are buyers. I ain’t trying to go out like that.
I’m gonna be a seller.
I’m gonna get my own business.
Change the game.
