Classic Quotes by Jill Scott and Lyzell Williams about their relationship:

"I want it addressed. I really do want to talk about the marriage because I'm okay. I've written songs about it. I've prayed about it. I've talked to my mother and my grandmother about it. Of course a grandmother has a different view on marriage than anyone else. But whe I knew I could stand up to her, then I knew I was doing the right thing. Because if I'm not doing the right thing and I look in her eyes, it's over. I can't move forward. But you know, I'm okay. I've already done my work. I'm just thinking about the other people who have included me in their lives. I don't want them to give up on marriage or love or the possibility of having a very real relationship. I want them to know that I'm not broken in any way, that the decision we made had a lot to do with this industry. It's very difficult and Lyzel and I knew each other as young, hustling, charming, naked people...just young folks trying to do womething with our lives. And now this industry has become a part of my life as well, our lives...and it's been hard." Jill Scott 9/2007
It's been very difficult to be on the road so much. There are repercussions to everything, even advancement and success...and I think that the repercussion to my success was the loss of my marriage. I'm not mad about it. We had 12 years together. We are still friends. I loved that man. I will always love that man, but I am no longer his wife and that's it." Jill Scott 9/2007
"And the food is sweet and I am not mad at any of it. I just want people to know this. And Lyzel is so not a bad apple. He's not a bad apple. He's not a bad guy. He's a wonderful man. Exactly, but with my career being as it is and my loving what I do as much as I do, I'm not saying that I chose my career over my marriage, but they couldn't coexist." Jill Scott 9/2007
"No. I was mad as hell for a minute. Oh yes, I think that forever is possible if two people communicate and they know where the other person is emotionally, spiritually, mentally, physically. I think that marriage can last forever, but when the communication stops, we start to create things in our head." Jill Scott 9/2007
"If I hadn't got in touch with my anger, I would never have been able to walk away from my marriage. I put icing on many places that were wounded. I put icing on them so they looked good and tasted pretty and all that. But I really didn't deal with those things until I had no choice but to deal with what was going on in my marriage." Jill Scott 9/2007
