No matter where you run, you just end up running into yourself.
There is nothing impossible. The word itself says I'm possible.
I'm an introvert… I love being by myself, love being outdoors, love taking a long walk with my dogs and looking at the trees, flowers, the sky.
The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.
I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it is the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills.
There is more to sex appeal than just measurements. I don't need a bedroom to prove my womanliness. I can convey just as much sex appeal, picking apples off a tree or standing in the rain.
Why change? Everyone has his own style. When you have found it, you should stick to it.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.
My life isn't theories and formulae. It's part instinct, part common sense. Logic is as good a word as any, and I've absorbed what logic I have from everything and everyone… from my mother, from training as a ballet dancer, from Vogue magazine, from the laws of life and health and nature.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
The most important thing is to enjoy your life—to be happy—it's all that matters.
Look, whenever I hear or read I'm beautiful, I simply don't understand it … I'm certainly not beautiful in any conventional way. I didn't make my career on beauty.
I had to make a choice at one point in my life, of missing films or missing my children. It was a very easy decision to make because I missed my children so very much.
It's that wonderful old-fashioned idea that others come first and you come second. This was the whole ethic by which I was brought up. Others matter more than you do, so 'don't fuss, dear; get on with it'.
My greatest ambition is to have a career without becoming a career woman.
I have to be alone very often. I'd be quite happy if I spent from Saturday night until Monday morning alone in my apartment. That's how I refuel.
For those who are letting age get in the way of love. The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.
On the one hand maybe I've remained infantile, while on the other I matured quickly, because at a young age I was very aware of suffering and fear.
Pick the day. Enjoy it - to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as they come... The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present, and I don't want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future.
Since the world has existed, there has been injustice. But it is one world, the more so as it becomes smaller, more accessible. There is just no question that there is more obligation that those who have should give to those who have nothing.
For my whole life, my favorite activity was reading. It's not the most social pastime.
My first big mission for UNICEF in Ethiopia was just to attract attention, before it was too late, to conditions which threatened the whole country. My role was to inform the world, to make sure that the people of Ethiopia were not forgotten.
Good things aren't supposed to just fall into your lap. God is very generous, but He expects you to do your part first.
When the chips are down, you are alone, and loneliness can be terrifying. Fortunately, I've always had a chum I could call. And I love to be alone. It doesn't bother me one bit. I'm my own company.
I decided, very early on, just to accept life unconditionally; I never expected it to do anything special for me, yet I seemed to accomplish far more than I had ever hoped. Most of the time it just happened to me without my ever seeking it.
I'd never worry about age if I knew I could go on being loved and have the possibility to love.
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries or the way she combs her hair.
We all want to be loved, don't we? Everyone looks for a way of finding love. It's a constant search for affection in every walk of life.
I can testify to what UNICEF means to children because I was among those who received food and medical relief right after World War II.
I never think of myself as an icon. What is in other people's minds is not in my mind. I just do my thing.
The 'Third World' is a term I don't like very much because we're all one world. I want people to know that the largest part of humanity is suffering.
Living is like tearing through a museum. Not until later do you really start absorbing what you saw, thinking about it, looking it up in a book, and remembering – because you can't take it in all at once.
There is one difference between a long life & a great dinner; in the dinner, the sweet things come last.
A quality education has the power to transform societies in a single generation, provide children with the protection they need from the hazards of poverty, labor exploitation and disease, and given them the knowledge, skills, and confidence to reach their full potential.
I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.
There is a science of war, but how strange that there isn't a science of peace. There are colleges of war; why can't we study peace?
You have to look at yourself objectively. Analyze yourself like an instrument. You have to be absolutely frank with yourself. Face your handicaps, don't try to hide them. Instead, develop something else.
Actually, you have to be a little bit in love with your leading man and vice versa. If you're going to portray love, you have to feel it. You can't do it any other way. But you don't carry it beyond the set.
I have learnt how to live…how to be in the world and of the world, and not just to stand aside and watch.
I was born with an enormous need for affection, and a terrible need to give it.
