Self quotes Self Quotes by Famous People


  • 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
  • For a long time, I’d been uncomfortable with the image that had been built around me and my music. It felt like I was pretending, trying to hide the real me, and hurting inside because of it. This time I was determined to step beyond the hype and glitter, to take it back down to the bare necessities. It was like starting all over again.
    Christina Aguilera Quotes
  • I don’t entertain or act for myself or else I would just act in front of the mirror, so I actually like having an audience and people being effected by stuff that I’m in. I love entertaining and they all happen to come out this year and the more, the merrier.
    Jessica Alba Quotes
  • I love Brad; I really love him. I will love him for the rest of my life. I don't regret any of it, and I'm not going to beat myself up about it. ... The sad thing, for me, is the way it's been reduced to a Hollywood cliche, or maybe it's just a human cliche.
    Jennifer Aniston Quotes
  • You can intellectualise it but the truth is you sit there going, 'How do I do that?' and you're frustrated and you get down on yourself because you're not there yet and then you just realise one day, 'It's happened...
    Jennifer Aniston Quotes
  • If you aren't willing to try everything and make a mistake, then you'll never make anything of yourself.
    Richard Branson Quotes
  • My interest in life comes from setting myself huge, apparently unachievable challenges and trying to rise above them.
    Richard Branson Quotes
  • Once we get comfortable as a company, I like to push the boat out again. My wife keeps saying, "Why? Why? You're fifty. Take it easy. Let's enjoy it." But I'm in a fairly unique position. Yesterday, the first of nine hundred new trains arrived in the UK and went into service. We are going to transform Britain's rail system from the worst in the world to the best. If you can do a few things like that, when the body gives out, you can say you've lived a good life. If I put all my money in the bank and drink myself to death in the Caribbean, I just think that would be a waste of the fantastic position I've found myself in.
    Richard Branson Quotes
  • Having a virtual self has been amazing and has certainly made diary arrangements easier to plan! Seeing as Virgin is going digital, I thought it highly appropriate to do the same.
    Richard Branson Quotes
  • Japanese kids reinvent themselves every summer, and in a way, Virgin does, too. Any successful business has to, who has been coming to Japan since the early '70s. My first trip really opened my eyes. I was given a plate of raw fish and the only thing I got up enough courage to eat was the wasabi.
    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
  • Real beauty is to be true to oneself. That's what makes me feel good.
    Laetitia Casta 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
  • Keeping a personal journal a daily in-depth analysis and evaluation of your experiences is a high-leverage activity that increases self-awareness and enhances all the endowments and the synergy among them.
    Stephen Covey Quotes
  • One of the best ways to strengthen our independent will is to make and keep promises. Each time we do, we make deposits in our personal integrity account the amount of trust we have in ourselves, in our ability to walk our talk.
    Stephen Covey Quotes
  • If your son, your husband, your friend, or your boss makes a mistake, you don't become accusatory, you look with compassion. Why? Your security does not come from them. It comes from within yourself. You're principle-centered.
    Stephen Covey Quotes
  • You can't think control; you think of releasing feelings seldom expressed and interacting with others until you create something better and you don't know what it is at the beginning. It takes a lot of internal security, a lot of self-mastery, before you can even assume that risk. And the people who like to control their time, money, and things, tend to try to control people, taking the efficiency approach, which in the long run is very ineffective.
    Stephen Covey Quotes
  • If I blame you, in effect I have empowered you. I have given my power to your weakness. Then I can create evidence that supports my perception that you are the problem.
    Stephen Covey Quotes
  • They (paparazzi) were doing a full back shot of me in a swimsuit and I thought, Oh my God, I have to be so brave. See, every woman hates herself from behind.
    Cindy Crawford Quotes
  • I love physical kinds of comedy and getting down and dirty and doing stunts. When I was growing up, I was always getting into fights with guys and usually punching out boys my age because I was a lot bigger and tougher. So I'm naturally accustomed to putting myself into the headspace of a girl who can take care of herself.
    Cameron Diaz Quotes
  • I'd kill myself if I was as fat as Marilyn Monroe.
    Elizabeth Hurley Quotes
  • When you are in preproduction, it's four months of phenomenally hard toil. You do 19-hour days and you don't sleep and you panic. And it's an awful lot of pressure when you are trusted with an awful lot of money by people that you really like and respect. And so if they give you a really huge amount of money, I really don't want to waste it for them. So it's a lot of pressure. If you are used to being hired by somebody, you go in and do your 10 weeks and you get paid well and you are spoiled rotten. You don't have to think for yourself. Told you are picked up here and your lunch is here.
    Elizabeth Hurley Quotes
  • I'd go from film to film and almost detach from one world and jump in another. I was living as these people and not having a self. I didn't know who I was. And things just get really dark.
    Angelina Jolie Quotes
  • For a long time I didn't love myself and I could see all of my flaws, but when I became a mum, I felt really beautiful and I felt a lot of love come out of me.
    Angelina Jolie Quotes
  • I like women who look like women. I hated grunge. No one's more feminist than me, but you don't have to look as if you don't give a - you know. You can be smart, bright, and attractive aesthetically to others - and to yourself.
    Catherine Zeta-Jones Quotes
  • As a manager I should do everything to deflect from the workforce the blows aimed at my partners and myself. I am leaving the company. I am confident that the highly professional, united team of extremely experienced managers will be able to successfully handle the task of globalising the YukosSibneft business.
    Mikhail Khodorkovsky Quotes
  • I don't think I can call myself an actress yet. I just don't think my skill level is that high. I hope that with every job it gets better. But until I'm good, I can say I'm trying to be an actor, but I don't think I've completely made it.
    Keira Knightley Quotes
  • I like presents that a man has spent time on, doing them himself, like a card or anything that is made by hand and from the heart.
    Adriana Lima Quotes
  • Be sure what you want and be sure about yourself. Fashion is not just beauty, it's about good attitude. You have to believe in yourself and be strong because you never know when you will work and not work.
    Adriana Lima Quotes
  • If one day I have a daughter and my daughter wants to be a model, I would never let her! But then, if she wants to, what can I do? But definitely not until she's 18 years old. You know, every work has the bad side, and people will be mean to you, and when you're young, you don't know how to defend yourself.
    Adriana Lima Quotes
  • Acting is mainly what I focus on, but, at the same time, I love singing as well. I'll probably be starting another album eventually, but my first album was rushed. I mean I recorded practically every song in my trailer on the set of Herbie. I was running myself down, literally running from set in between set-ups and singing. I'll have to sit down and take the time. I also wanna get involved in starting a charity. So, we'll see, I don't want to jinx anything.
    Lindsay Lohan Quotes
  • I'm involved in, like, everything. If I had the time to do it myself [I would], but I wouldn't want to do a website for myself because that would just seem weird. I want to interact with my fans and I want to let people know what I'm doing and stuff like that because I'd want to know. I think that's a really cool thing. So I'm pretty involved in it.
    Lindsay Lohan Quotes
  • I've always been interested in singing and I've always been singing and dancing since I was little. It's hard right now, because there are a lot of other girls coming out. ...I don't want to just be one in the pack. I want to separate myself.
    Lindsay Lohan Quotes
  • I was overtired and working myself to death. When you're young, you think you can just keep going and going.
    Lindsay Lohan Quotes
  • I don't limit myself and close off my mind to other opportunities as they may arise.
    Eva Longoria Quotes
  • When I see myself on a lot of magazine covers now, in one way I'm very proud and flattered, and in another sense I'm laughing back at all those people who were mean to me when I was getting teased as a weird-looking kid. It's a nice form of poetic justice.
    Eva Longoria Quotes
  • I remember one night when I was sitting by myself in my home and I started crying and then laughing when I was thinking about how it's so great that this is happening and you almost can't believe it. It's the strangest but also the most wonderful feeling you can have.
    Eva Longoria Quotes
  • An artist must possess Nature. He must identify himself with her rhythm, by efforts that will prepare the mastery which will later enable him to express himself in his own language.
    Henri Matisse Quotes
  • The truth is I've never fooled anyone. I've let people fool themselves. They didn't bother to find out who and what I was. Instead they would invent a character for me. I wouldn't argue with them. They were obviously loving somebody I wasn't. When they found this out, they would blame me for disillusioning them and fooling them.
    Marilyn Monroe Quotes
  • It was the creative part that kept me going, trying to be an actress. I enjoy acting when you really hit it right. And I guess I've always had too much fantasy to be only a housewife. Well, also, I had to eat. I was never kept, to be blunt about it. I always kept myself. I have always had a pride in the fact that I was my own.
    Marilyn Monroe Quotes
  • Painting is self-discovery. Every good artist paints what he is.
    Jackson Pollock Quotes
  • The pressure of making the right decisions for myself has got bigger, and I'm just trying to trust my instinct. Certainly, the phone rings more now, and I get to read much better scripts. So there's a lot more choice involved. But with that comes a lot of pressure.
    Naomi Watts 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
  • I find myself gravitating towards drama. It interests me. In the books I read, the paintings I like, it's always the darker stuff.
    Naomi Watts Quotes
  • Now I know what I can do and what I'm good at and what I like. I think I'm good at being honest and in the moment and being able to laugh at myself. And Nicole always reminded me to never give up. 'Just one thing can change everything,' she'd tell me, and she was right.
    Naomi Watts Quotes
  • I'm not scared of the dark or ghost, and I'm not particularly paranoid, although I did get a very creepy 10-page letter from a fan once, creepy because this guy knew more about me than I knew about myself.
    Naomi Watts Quotes
  • We will have to see how busy my business keeps me. For now, I see myself continuing to model indefinitely. I really enjoy it.
    Alek Wek Quotes
  • In my country, families are raised as though they are one. Although I am from the Dinka tribe, my parents didn’t raise us as the Dinka tribe. They raised us as the Wek family, in the way they believed their children should grow up. So when you leave, the first thing you think is the ones you left behind. It’s natural to help them in any way you can. I found a way to support myself rather than asking my Mum to give me money. I would work before school and send money back to pay for their rent and food.
    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 truly understand that there is a lesson in everything that happens to us. So I tried not to spend my time asking "Why did this happen to me?" but trying to figure out why I had chosen this. That's the answer you need. It's always a question of accepting responsibility for your choices. Anytime you look outside yourself for answers, you're looking in the wrong place.
    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
  • I spend a lot of time by myself, and I consciously do that to strengthen myself and to stay centered.
    Oprah Winfrey Quotes
  • I couldn't do the kinds of shows that I see some other people do, I just couldn't. I've reached a level of maturity in this work myself. There was a time, when I first started out, that it was far more exploited.
    Oprah Winfrey Quotes
