Life quotes Life Quotes by Famous People


  • I feel like.. it changes your life a lil bit. Like when you get shot at nine times, you start makin a dream for a reason. You got a purpose.. I'm still tryin to figure out what my purpose is.
    50 Cent Quotes
  • My past is my shadow, it follows me everywhere I go. Well, all those things come from when I had no other choice. They put my back against the wall. I do what I gotta do.
    50 Cent Quotes
  • It's my place to free the person I am inside. Because in real life I guess you could say I'm a little introverted.
    Christina Aguilera Quotes
  • My own experience has shown that you can survive after going through terrible times at home and I give my utmost support to those women and young people living with the threat of domestic abuse... Don't suffer in silence because help is out there.
    Christina Aguilera Quotes
  • I don't take as much crap as I used to. You know, once you give birth, once you have kids, you realize what's important in life, and you realize it's really not difficult to be a good person. And so when people aren't good around me, I tend to move away from that.
    Pam Anderson Quotes
  • With FRIENDS, it was all about putting six people together in one setting and watching their lives evolve. In one way, we were the first "Reality" series before Big Brother and Survivor ever came along. Those shows just took the concept one step further and obviously the public has gotten very involved with that.
    Jennifer Aniston Quotes
  • We've all been living in denial about it, but now it's starting to sink in and it's very upsetting. As we count down to the last three episodes, it's getting harder and harder to read the lines, do the scenes, without one of us breaking down in tears. And I have to admit, I'm a pretty emotional person and I'm probably taking this harder than the others. This has been my family for ten years and now suddenly I'm wondering what life is going to be like without that closeness.
    Jennifer Aniston Quotes
  • I've never in my life said I didn't want to have children. I did and I do and I will!…I would never give up that experience for a career. I want to have it all.
    Jennifer Aniston Quotes
  • Life can be dramatic and funny all in the same day.
    Jennifer Aniston Quotes
  • I have been lucky enough to be able to live on my obsession. This is my only success.
    Francis Bacon Quotes
  • I should really live in the mountains, but it’s impossible to paint in the mountains, at any rate for me. I need the city; I need to know there are people around me strolling, arguing, fucking—living, and yet I go out very rarely; I stay here in my cage. But I know there are people around me and that is enough.
    Francis Bacon Quotes
  • The life I've lived happen to be more profoundly curious than my work. Then sometimes, when I think about it, I'd prefer everything about my life to blow up after I die and disappear.
    Francis Bacon Quotes
  • Very few people find their real instincts. Every now and then there's an artist who does and who makes something new and actually thickens the texture of life. But it's very rare. You have to be able to be really free to find yourself in that way, without any moral or religious constraints.
    Francis Bacon Quotes
  • Even as old as I am, it doesn’t stop me from looking at men...as if anything might happen, as if life were about to start again; often when I go out in the evening I flirt as if I were only 50. We ought to be able to change our engines. This is the artist’s privilege—to be ageless. Passion keeps you young, and passion and liberty are so seductive. When I paint I am ageless, I just have the pleasure or the difficulty of painting.
    Francis Bacon Quotes
  • My painting is a representation of life, my own life above all, which has been very difficult. So perhaps my painting is very violent, but this is natural to me.
    Francis Bacon Quotes
  • My painting is not violent; it’s life that is violent. I have endured physical violence, I have even had my teeth broken. Sexuality, human emotion, everyday life, personal humiliation - violence is part of human nature.
    Francis Bacon Quotes
  • I don't think about art when I'm working. I try to think about life.
    Jean Michel Basquiat Quotes
  • I thought I was going to be a bum the rest of my life.
    Jean Michel Basquiat Quotes
  • Wine, like life, is meant to be enjoyed.
    Richard Branson Quotes
  • I just like to enjoy life and push myself. Of course, there is method to my madness. When you are entering into a new industry, for example, it helps to do something to get your name on the front pages.
    Richard Branson Quotes
  • My interest in life comes from setting myself huge, apparently unachievable challenges and trying to rise above them.
    Richard Branson Quotes
  • I’m over the moon. As Richard Branson Astronaut rather than Richard Branson entrepreneur, my wife will find me even harder to live with.
    Richard Branson Quotes
  • I cannot remember a moment in my life when I have not felt the love of my family. We were a family that would have killed for each other - and we still are. My parents adored each other, and in my childhood there was barely a cross word between them.
    Richard Branson Quotes
  • I think having fun in life is, in part, Virgin's way of doing things. We like our staff to have a laugh and a smile, and having the public having a laugh and having a smile.
    Richard Branson Quotes
  • I've lived by the dangerous—and sometimes rather foolish—maxim that I'm prepared to try anything once.
    Richard Branson Quotes
  • The conditions of human life have not only been changed, but revolutionized, within the past few hundred years. In former days there was little difference between the dwelling, dress, food, and environment of the chief and those of his retainers.
    Andrew Carnegie Quotes
  • I don't believe in happy endings, but I do believe in happy travels, because ultimately, you die at a very young age, or you live long enough to watch your friends die. It's a mean thing, life.
    George Clooney Quotes
  • An acting career usually has about a shelf life of ten years before people get sick of seeing you. It's a good thing to have a job to fall back on and I really do enjoy directing.
    George Clooney Quotes
  • I don't like to share my personal life.. it wouldn't be personal if I shared it.
    George Clooney Quotes
  • I only know that I am alive and there is something that manifests in my life, that it is God and one day I am going to understand my life, probably in the day that I die, or afterwards. But I try to find good questions and not good answers.
    Paulo Coelho Quotes
  • I believe everything is one thing only. That said, there are some questions in my life that I don’t know...I’ve stopped asking. At the very beginning of my life, I wanted to have answers for everything. And now I respect the fact that I can’t have answers for everything.
    Paulo Coelho Quotes
  • Only by centering on "timeless" principles and then living by them can we enjoy sustained moral, physical, social, and financial wellness.
    Stephen Covey Quotes
  • It's become another dimension to who I am. I don't think Sports Illustrated is going to be wanting me. But who cares? I'm at a different place in my life.
    Cindy Crawford Quotes
  • I'm loving being a dad. Every single day of my life is significantly better, because I'm a father. I've got no complaints with my life at this point in time.
    Russell Crowe Quotes
  • Never in my life have I gotten on a plane to go for a holiday. I get on a plane and I go to work. When I have a holiday, I'm at home playing with the cows.
    Russell Crowe Quotes
  • Shakespeare was deja vu for me. It was so cool. I felt as if I had seen his words already, knew them all by heart. Then, after I began studying scientology, I realized the words had come from my heart in a previous life. That’s why I say that as glorious and enviable as my present life is, making “War of the Worlds” and all those other great movies can’t compare to writing “Romeo and Juliet” or the sonnets.
    Tom Cruise Quotes
  • I don't want people to go through what I went through. I want kids to have the ability to read, to write, to understand what people are saying to them, to be able to solve life's problems.
    Tom Cruise Quotes
  • We live in a world in which we are able to communicate very quickly in many different ways, and yet we find communicating more difficult than ever. When in fact we need communication more urgently than ever, because the enemies that threaten us are universal: drugs, illiteracy and crime. We have to fight against them together.
    Tom Cruise Quotes
  • After seeing the film we feared for our lives, even in the bathtub.
    Tom Cruise Quotes
  • The important thing with a child is that you love them, you protect them and you help them to grow and find out who they are. And as a parent, it's my responsibility to help them to become independent and get all the knowledge and a broad view of the world and life. I know that Nic absolutely agrees with that. And that's what's important: being there.
    Tom Cruise Quotes
  • I feel … I feel privileged. That's how I feel. I feel I live a privileged life.
    Tom Cruise Quotes
  • I've pretty much behaved like a knucklehead my entire life. It was probably more adorable when I was a child… as an adult I'm sure it's less attractive.
    Cameron Diaz Quotes
  • You use your money to buy privacy because during most of your life you aren't allowed to be normal.
    Johnny Depp Quotes
  • I guess I'm attracted to these off beat roles because my life has been a bit abnormal. The only thing I have a problem with is being labeled.
    Johnny Depp Quotes
  • I'm very happy with the way I look. I wake up some morning, catch myself in the bathroom mirror, and go, 'hey girl, you're alright'. But on the other hand, I find the website stuff, and the polls, something completely removed from my own personal life. You can't take anything like that too seriously, otherwise you'd end up in the loony bin.
    Cameron Diaz Quotes
  • I’ve been in the business since I was 16, so I’ve had a 14-year career. I’ve always had acting in my blood. Doing this, whatever it is, was something I was drawn to since my earliest memories. Ironically, I lived in Hollywood, but never understood that all it took was getting an agent and being persistent.
    Leonardo DiCaprio Quotes
  • A lot of actors ask me “what do you do? How do you get into the business?” My only answer is don’t be discouraged. … You have to commit your life to it, almost, and never give up. It’s a cliché, but it’s true.
    Leonardo DiCaprio Quotes
  • All I know is that when you make a movie it's something you have to live with forever. It's not a job I take lightly.
    Leonardo DiCaprio Quotes
  • I do say things that I think will shock people but I don't do things to shock people. I'm not trying to be the next Tupac, but I don't know how long I'm going to be on this planet. So while I'm here, I might as well make the most of it.
    Eminem Quotes
  • I was the only one who was actually in a fraternity, so obviously I had lived some form or variation of what you see. I had also run naked before, sadly enough. I was able to draw on that sort of thing.
    Will Ferrell Quotes
  • In the end we shall have had enough of cynicism, skepticism, and humbug, and we shall want to live more musically.
    Vincent van Gogh Quotes
  • I am risking my life for my work, and half my reason has gone.
    Vincent van Gogh Quotes
  • I don't take life seriously. I'm a good person, having great time. I just have a really good time!
    Paris Hilton Quotes
  • I think it's enhanced every single part of my life. It really, really reminds you of what's important and what brings you great joy. ... I never really knew very many babies before. I had hardly ever spent any time with them. And I just love him. It's heaven.
    Elizabeth Hurley Quotes
  • You have to throw away your inhibitions, otherwise it's excruciating. I mean, it's kind of excruciating anyway, but it's even worse if you're self-conscious. So I think you just have to close your eyes, take a deep breath and be silly for a bit. I never really thought about it. I mean, I mess around all the time in real life, and I suppose I hadn't really thought that most people see me sort of looking quite perfect in my makeup ads 'course we all know it's taken six hours to get me that groomed and perfect.
    Elizabeth Hurley Quotes
  • I went through a big stage of my life where I thought, you know, maybe it would be better to be a vegetarian, so I researched it. In no uncertain terms did I research it. Let's say this represents one cow, which will keep me in food for, let's say, a month. Now that cow needs this much land and food. Well, you can imagine, that cow needs x by x amount of land, and you can grow trees in it. Around that cow, you can have goannas, kangaroos, wallabies. You can have every other single Australian animal in and around that cow.
    Steve Irwin Quotes
  • I've been catching crocodiles all my life and in this movie you're going to see me grab and hold a 12 foot Australian Saltwater Crocodile. They happen to be the biggest predator on our earth. They hit so hard and fast that if you're within strike range from the water's edge, they will explode out and hit before you can get out of their way. Strike range is half their body weight. When you see Terri in the boat getting attacked by the big croc and you see fear on her face, that's not acting. That's fear. It's real. And by crikey, we have a lot of fun doing it.
    Steve Irwin Quotes
  • If I was a vegetarian, to feed me for that month, I need this much land, and nothing else can grow there. Herein lies our problem. If we level that much land to grow rice and whatever, then no other animal could live there except for some insect pest species. Which is very unfortunate.
    Steve Irwin Quotes
  • Me and my wife, we sleep and live the wild life. That's all I do. Rescuing and educating people about wildlife, so I travel through our new movie just being me. I didn't' have to worry about the script. I didn't have to worry about the story. All I had to do was just go through the movie and instead of using video cameras, we had 35mm cameras shoot me and I just breezed on through it. However, that's just my world. There was another world, the world of CIA, spies, people trying to get me, satellites, intelligence and intrigue. You couldn't get any more action, adventure and fun.
    Steve Irwin Quotes
  • Where I live if someone gives you a hug it's from the heart. I've had these blokes in Hollywood hug me trying to make out I'm their friend and as soon as I turn their back they take out a big bunch of knives and stab me in the back. I feel sorry for these people because they are so shallow.
    Steve Irwin Quotes
  • There's something about death that is comforting, the thought that you could die tomorrow frees you to appreciate your life now.
    Angelina Jolie Quotes
  • Becoming a mother has grounded me and made me understand love and life in a very different and real way.
    Angelina Jolie Quotes
  • Now, I think any lawyer in the world is going to think they're George Clooney after seeing this - "They based him on me!" But I'm very happy with my lawyers. Though I don't think I want to spend the rest of my life with any of them.
    Catherine Zeta-Jones Quotes
  • Me personally as a citizen not only have the right to have, but I have to have, my own political views and I have to defend them. And if we don't do this, then the prosecutors are going to determine our political life.
    Mikhail Khodorkovsky Quotes
  • I don't know. I think if people would focus more on their lives and the problems we were talking about earlier that maybe we'd be living in a better place.
    Ashton Kutcher
  • Those years when you’re suddenly allowed legally into bars and clubs, and the world suddenly you realize is offering itself to you. I would say I guess that if you look at my life, I was always someone who looked for commitment and that was in my make-up.
    Jude Law Quotes
  • I think I live inside the plane! I never have time to unpack; I'm always leaving in two days again. I travel a lot, and at the beginning it was really fun. The first time I went inside a plane, I was 15 years old and I had so much fun. I like to travel all over the world and learn [about] new cultures. Not that many people have the opportunity to do that.
    Adriana Lima Quotes
  • My mom stands a certain way and she has really good posture. So I took that from her. And whenever I slouch she goes over and she puts my back up straight. She'll probably notice that. ...My mom is a really cool mom. Jamie's character in the movie is very square and my mom is not very square. My mom is more like Jamie in real life.
    Lindsay Lohan Quotes
  • You will never see me in a nude scene. Then there's no mystery for my private life.
    Lindsay Lohan Quotes
  • I'm very happy. I'm trying to stay calm and not feel like this is all too good to be true and any day it can disappear. You can't think like that or feel stressed by the fact that a lot of opportunities are opening up for you. I've worked hard to get to this point and this is one more stage in my life.
    Eva Longoria Quotes
  • I've always been confident with who I was, but my twenties were hard. I had to learn a lot of life lessons and I think my thirties will be a little easier because of all the wrong turns I took.
    Eva Longoria Quotes
  • People will always be interested in relationships and infidelity and sex and everything connecting to things going on in their own lives.
    Eva Longoria Quotes
  • . . I have always sought to be understood and, while I was taken to task by critics or colleagues, I thought they were right, assuming I had not been clear enough to be understood. This assumption allowed me to work my whole life without hatred and even without bitterness toward criticism, regardless of its source. I counted solely on the clarity of expression of my work to gain my ends. Hatred, rancor, and the spirit of vengeance are useless baggage to the artist. His road is difficult enough for him to cleanse his soul of everything which could make it more so.
    Henri Matisse Quotes
  • Happy are those who sing with all their heart, from the bottoms of their hearts. To find joy in the sky, the trees, the flowers. There are always flowers for those who want to see them." There really are. The good is just as real as the bad in life.
    Henri Matisse Quotes
  • Sometimes wearing a scarf and a polo coat and no make up and with a certain attitude of walking, I go shopping or just looking at people living. But then you know,there will be a few teenagers who are kind of sharp and they'll say, "Hey, just a minute. You know who I think that is?" And they'll start tailing me. And I don't mind. I realize some people want to see if you're real.The teenagers, the little kids, their faces light up. They say, "Gee," and they can't wait to tell their friends. And old people come up and say, "Wait till I tell my wife." You've changed their whole day.
    Marilyn Monroe Quotes
  • I had an essence in my life that I was nothing.
    Demi Moore Quotes
  • This is not like one country in a war against another country. This is, you know, a small group – a breakaway almost – of one of the biggest religions in the world and they're brainwashing young people to suicide, give up their lives to go in and try and destroy our way of life. It's … they want to take the world back four hundred years to a theocracy run by Muslim priests …
    Rupert Murdoch Quotes
  • Sometimes the darker stuff has greater potential for drama, it's always interesting to investigate things that you might come across in your own life. There's a lot of comedy in Intermission but it's got this depth. It's not comedy for comedy's sake - it's informed by something else. I like stuff like that.
    Cillian Murphy Quotes
  • You know, I’ll get recognized when I go for a cup of coffee. I’ve been working a lot, so I haven’t really noticed things changing, or anything different about my life. Yeah, people recognize me, and it’s all very sweet and very nice, but it’s not an imposition in any way. In fact in London, where I live, everybody leaves me alone. Nobody recognizes me. That’s the way I’d like to keep it.
    Cillian Murphy Quotes
  • There are two great moments in a man's life. One, when he buys his first yacht. Second, when he sells the thing!
    Kerry Packer Quotes
  • My life is sport. I was academically stupid and my method for surviving through school and those sort of things was sport.
    Kerry Packer Quotes
  • The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.
    Pablo Picasso Quotes
  • Let us be the ones who say we do not accept that a child dies every three seconds simply because he does not have the drugs you and I have. Let us be the ones to say we are not satisfied that your place of birth determines your right to life. Let us be outraged, let us be loud, let us be bold.
    Brad Pitt Quotes
  • I believe you make your day. You make your life. So much of it is all perception, and this is the form that I built for myself. I have to accept it and work within those compounds, and it's up to me.
    Brad Pitt Quotes
  • When I am in a painting, I'm not aware of what I'm doing. It is only after a sort of 'get acquainted' period that I see what I have been about. I have no fears about making changes, destroying the image, etc, because the painting has a life of its own. I try to let it come through. It is only when I lose contact with the painting that the result is a mess. Otherwise there is pure harmony, an easy give and take, and the painting comes out well.
    Jackson Pollock Quotes
  • There's a professor from Yale, Professor [Jeffrey] Sonnenfeld. He says the real workplace doesn't use sex appeal. And I say, you'd better stay a professor and not go into business! The fact is, there are certain women who are able to use sex appeal to win. Because I'm such a diplomat, I want to say to never use it. But the fact is, life is loaded with it.
    Donald Trump Quotes
  • Everything in life is luck.
    Donald Trump Quotes
  • I´ve started to notice in the last few months that the roles available to women in their thirties suddenly seem a lot better than the ones for women in their mid- to late-twenties. Which makes sense. Women have got more to say at this point in their lives. They´ve had a decade of getting to know themselves, of making mistakes, reflecting back to failed relationships, having children, all those things, and as a result, the characters, the roles, become much more interesting, more dynamic.
    Naomi Watts Quotes
  • The Civil War has robbed my people of their basic rights: their voices, the necessities of life, even life itself.
    Alek Wek Quotes
  • You get divorced. Things happen. I have nobody to blame for the divorce but myself. I'm happy it happened. I'm thrilled to go on with life.
    Jack Welch Quotes
  • I was intrigued and enormously drawn to extremism by people who had blown their lives or who had taken their lives outside the normal conventions of society.
    Brett Whiteley Quotes
  • Everyone reaches a point in their life where they must either change or cease.
    Brett Whiteley Quotes
  • I hardly ever see my paintings around.I don’t have the faintest idea where halfof my life’s work is. Sometimes that worries me. We should have a museum specially built for retrospectives. It would be ten feet wide and a mile long, like a railway tunnel, and you could walk down someone’s life chronologically.
    Brett Whiteley Quotes
  • I'm not going to be in a movie where people are being shot which eliminates almost all roles. I just won't do it. I don't believe in it and I believe that the imagery of films is very powerful, more powerful than people give it credit for being. And to say it's a reflection of society is a cop-out. So it's not what I choose to do because I can't justify it in terms of the way I lead my life.
    Oprah Winfrey Quotes
  • All my life I have always known I was born to greatness.
    Oprah Winfrey Quotes
  • You're dealing with millions of people everyday, and it's very easy for something to be misinterpreted, so my intention is always, regardless of what the show is --whether it's about sibling rivalry or wife battering or children of divorce -- for people to see within each show that you are responsible for your life, that although there may be tragedy in your life, there's always a possibility to triumph.
    Oprah Winfrey Quotes
  • There have been times when I have been unhappy, but I realize that I created that unhappiness myself because I was so busy worrying about the next thing. I was worried about how I was going to fit into a certain image that other people had of me. But not any more. I feel I'm back in control of my life now, personally and professionally.
    Oprah Winfrey Quotes
