Help, trying to find a quote...

Hello all, long time lurker, first time poster! I’ve been trying to find an interview quote (I think) where Prince says something along the lines of “I live in this world but I’m not of it”. Thought it was from his first mtv interview but nope. Can anyone help?? Thanks!

Can't find the Prince quote but I do remember it. The idea comes from the Bible. My Amish relatives said that about themselves when I was a kid, that they were in the world, but not of it.

Jesus Himself said, “The world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world” (John 17:14-16).

stevie wonder sang it in one of his 70's songs.
