Doing Been

I was in 'Jacques Brel' Off-Broadway for many years, so I've always been a singing actress, but the songwriting was a complete surprise. I had never written a song in my life. We were on the road with 'Jacques Brel' doing the national tour, and I picked up a guitar one day and I wrote a song.

Game Very

At different times in my life, I've made grand statements like, 'I want these many kids, and I want them by this age.' I think, with every year that goes by, I accept that I don't know when it's going to happen or how it's going to happen. I'll just take it one day at a time, and when I'm ready, I'll be ready. It'll reveal itself, I guess.

Been About

Life is all about evolution. What looks like a mistake to others has been a milestone in my life.

We are human and we make mistakes, but learning from them is what makes the difference.

- Amisha Patel

Sometimes About

I just lead my life as naturally, as normally as I possibly can. But I can't help it if controversy is hounding me day in and day out. I'm quite amazed sometimes by the way they go about it. I grow a beard and it lands up in the editorial in The Times of India.

- Amitabh Bachchan

Through Set

A lot of my fighting qualities I inherited from my parents. They set tremendous examples right through my life.

- Amitabh Bachchan

Book Through

Say I lived until 80 and read a book a month seriously, that means I was looking at 480 books left in my life. If I had only 480 left, I wanted to stop sifting through material I didn't have confidence in and turn my attention to those that I know merited my reading.

- Amor Towles

Career Mature

I had a 20-year career. I have two children. The advantage of writing later in my life is that I already had a whole mature realm of accomplishments and responsibilities, an identity outside of being a writer.

- Amor Towles

Doing Career

As I've moved along - not only my life, but my career and things like that - you look at yourself and start going, 'Oh, man, are you still doing what you set out to do? Are the ideals you had still the same?' Sometimes you measure up and sometimes you don't.

- Amos Lee

Career Been

Big How Much Time

Thirty was a big deal for me. It was the age where I reevaluated everything - how I approached life and how I thought about myself. When I look at my 20s, or when I look at any period in my life, I think about how much time I've wasted trying to find the right man.

- Amy Adams

Had Part

I've had a family my entire adult life; I started raising kids when I was 21. I suspect that being part of a family has probably informed my life as a writer as much as anything else has.

- Amy Bloom

Doing Rest

I'm sure I'll be doing something of social or political worth the rest of my life.

- Amy Carter

Love I See

I see my upbringing as a great success story. By disciplining me, my parents inculcated self-discipline. And by restricting my choices as a child, they gave me so many choices in my life as an adult. Because of what they did then, I get to do the work I love now.

- Amy Chua

Gift Feel

I kind of - I like my life; I feel I have lots of opportunities. And my parents actually having had such high expectations for me - I would say it's the greatest gift that anyone has ever given me. I complained a lot when I was little, but that's how I feel now. And that's why I tried to do the same with my two daughters.

- Amy Chua

Back About

I can look back at different times in my life when I felt I could not find my way out of whatever it was. I'm not necessarily talking about marriage, but I wanted to pack it in. I wanted to disappear. A lot of that has to do with being in the public eye.

- Amy Grant

Think I Think

I think it's amazing that I'm 45 and it is the most creatively successful year of my life.

Hands Became

At the age of 19, the day after I graduated high school, I moved to a place where it snowed, and I became a massage therapist.

- Amy Purdy

Never Wanted

I've never wanted sympathy votes in anything I do in my life.

- Amy Purdy

Thought About

If somebody would've told me that I was going to lose my legs at the age of 19, I would've thought there's absolutely no way I'd be able to handle that. But then it happened, and I realized that there's so much more to live for, that my life isn't about my legs.

- Amy Purdy

Love Became

I tried snowboarding at 14, and I absolutely fell in love with it. I snowboarded every day off I had, every weekend I had off of school, every holiday we had off from school, and it became a huge part of my life, not just what I love to do, but really just kind of who I was.

- Amy Purdy

Health Knew

It was challenging. It was never easy for me. My life changed suddenly, and I lost my health. I lost the body that I knew.

- Amy Purdy

Love Values

I lost the life that I knew, and I really had to rethink my future and think about my core values and the things that I love, and my passion, and that's really what helped me move forward. Also, for me just being grateful for what I had in my life versus on focusing on what I was losing, that really helped as well.

- Amy Purdy

Back Two

I have two prosthetic legs. This is my life; what am I going to do with it? And it's put me on this amazing journey. I can look back and be completely grateful and say I would never want to change anything.

Old Suddenly

Of course, I was 19 years old, and I suddenly lost my legs. It was extremely traumatic at the time, but I'm so beyond that. I've done so much with my life.

- Amy Sedaris

Love Period

That was a wonderful period in my life. I mean, I didn't become an artist, but somebody let me do something I loved. What a luxury, to do something you love to do.

- Amy Tan

Thought Fiction

I also thought of playing improvisational jazz and I did take lessons for a while. At first I tried to write fiction by making up things that were completely alien to my life.

- Amy Tan

Catcher Forbidden

The forbidden things were a great influence on my life. I was forbidden from reading A Catcher in the Rye.

- Amy Tan

Luck I Think

Luck is in every part of China. Many Chinese stores and restaurants have the word 'luck' in their names. The idea is that, just by using the word 'luck' in names of things, you can attract more of it. I think that's true in my life as well. You attract luck because you go after it.

- Amy Tan

Shame Next

I really thought I was on the way out. My husband Blake saved my life. Often I don't know what I do, then the next day the memory returns. And then I am engulfed in shame.

- Amy Winehouse

Career Big

My life and career have been a big improvisation.

- Ana de Armas

Best Been

I'm weird. I'm not too focused on the physicality of a man. They just have to become my best friend, and then I start to get attracted to them. I've never been in a bar and just hit on a guy and started kissing him; I've never done that in my life.

- Ana de la Reguera

Nothing Improve

I've had to fight to improve my life. Nothing has come easily.

Very Some

I have always been very dedicated to tennis, and it's true that I made some compromises in my life. For example, I never went out to parties when I was younger, and I spent less time with friends.

- Ana Ivanovic

Kid Hates

I don't relate to that angst-y kid who hates their parents because they were horrible. It's just not my life and it's not the life of a lot of my friends.

- Ana Ortiz

Boston Some

Boston was incredible. I had some of the best experiences of my life there at Berklee because I met a bunch of other people who were at the exact same stage in life and interest as me. There were American and international students all wrapped up in the Berklee environment, where you basically did nothing but music 24/7.

- Anat Cohen

Life Chess

Chess is my life, but my life is not chess.

- Anatoly Karpov

Chess World

I was world champion. For me, chess is my life. It is everything.

- Anatoly Karpov

Thought Some

My dad grew up really poor in Mississippi. I paid attention to that because I thought that's a healthier thing to pay attention to than, like, some statue of a great-great-great grandfather who has no connection to my life.

- Anderson Cooper

Quick Had

I didn't start playing drums until I was 12, for school band; they didn't have any saxophones left. My step-pops had a kit at the house, and I had never done anything that I understood so quick. It was so natural. It was the most fun and consistent thing in my life.

- Anderson Paak

Love I Love

I love the sport. I love fighting. Fighting is my life.

- Anderson Silva

Love I Love

I come to fight because I love to fight. It's my life.

- Anderson Silva

Streets Crowd

There is nothing like walking on the streets on a freezing cold day and hearing fans scream your name, then stopping to talk to those same fans. There is nothing like looking into the crowd at the Q and seeing over 20,000 people wearing wigs to match your hair. Those are feelings I will cherish for the rest of my life and never forget.

- Anderson Varejao

I Think Diane

Diane Keaton, I've worked with her as a director, and I think she's a really intelligent woman. I like the fact that the things that make her feel beautiful are more than just her face; it's who she is, and I live by that same theory. There are things I want to achieve in my life intellectually that make me feel beautiful.

- Andie MacDowell

Want Younger

Goal Rest

My goal is to do cartwheels for the rest of my life.

- Andie MacDowell

I Think Private

I think a lot of times people who jump from one movie to another don't enjoy their private life. It's a great way to escape reality. But I enjoy my life.

- Andie MacDowell

Change Happen

Wonderful things happen when you turn 50: you change perspective. You ask, 'Who am I? What do I want to do with my life? What have I not done that I want to do?'

- Andie MacDowell

Here Other

I pray, read the word, and then creative stuff happens here. Problem-solving and all of that comes into that space. So 'Da Box' actually represents my sanctuary and that time. I might look trapped in a box, but I'm actually more free in that box than anyone on the outside looking in or in any other space in my life.

- Andra Day

DNA Throughout

Throughout my life, I've had consistent DNA.

- Andra Day

Through Been

When I finish a song, I thank God for bringing me through. You have to press on and know your calling. That's what I've been doing for all my life. I just went forward.

Love Sure

Very Part

The waltz is a very important part of my life. It's a very important way for me to express my positiveness, bringing humor to the world.

- Andre Rieu

Life Perhaps

I was a fat child and loved cake, perhaps because it was the only sweet thing in my life.

- Andre Rieu

Parent Almost

My mom had struggles. My dad had struggles. He raised me as a single parent. I rebelled and almost quit amateur boxing, but my faith in God had a lot to do with me slowly getting my life together.

- Andre Ward

Think Informed

People ask, 'Are your things autobiographical?,' and I think, no, they're not autobiographical directly, but of course my life has informed my work.

- Andrea Arnold

Go Been

I've never been to a black-tie thing in my life. I didn't even go to my prom.

- Andrea Barrett

Alive Some

All my life, books have felt alive; some more so than people, or rather, some people. Alive - this has to do with me, I know, and not the books - in a way that some people aren't. Alive as teachers, alive as minds, alive as imaginative triggers.

- Andrea Barrett

Play Game

My life experience has taught me nothing happens by chance. Even the idea of the ball in a roulette game: it's not chance it ends up in a certain place. It's forces that are at play.

- Andrea Bocelli

Natural Very

Fatherhood is a very natural thing; it's not something that shakes up my life but rather it enriches it.

- Andrea Bocelli

Play Tries

I've always been on the side of science that tries to help man. I play an active part with the foundations I'm involved in. Science gives hope. If it were offered to me? Never say never. But I wouldn't kill or steal to have my sight. My blindness doesn't define my life.

- Andrea Bocelli

Blind Fact

The fact that I am blind is not what defines my life. It should be of no more interest than my blood type. People wonder if there is a relationship between my lack of sight and the way I sing. But there's no connection.

- Andrea Bocelli

Singing Singer

When I began singing, it was the first time I was happy in my life. As a baby, I would stop crying when I heard a great singer.

- Andrea Bocelli

Mathematics More

I changed the course of my life, from the rigidity of mathematics and the corporate rhythm to a more bohemian world.

- Andrea Hirata

Love Reasons

For pragmatic reasons, I love the routine. I love the structure of it. I love knowing that my days are free. I know where I'm going at night. I know my life is kind of orderly. I just like that better.

- Andrea Martin

Been Gigantic

The first time I ever heard professional actors delivering lines that I wrote was completely surreal and was just a gigantic moment in my life. It was just a little bit mind-blowing and completely strange to have something that had been on my computer being said out loud.

- Andrea Seigel

Old Saw

I was 11 years old when I saw the first season of 'The Real World.' Initially, I was drawn to the show because it was what I imagined the adult version of my life should be.

- Andrea Seigel

Artist I Am Happy
