My mother loved the Bible.

Mindfulness can help people of any age. That's because we become what we think.

What we want to help children with is, just because you feel sad or happy or depressed doesn't mean that is who you are. We want them to know, 'I am really sad right now, but I am not a sad person.'

I just wanted to be normal. I wanted to have a normal life. I wanted to have children. And when I was picked out of a chorus line and cast in a TV series, I got anxious, so I took the bull by the horns and went to see a psychologist. And it was the greatest move I ever made.

I never quite fit in - at least, from my own perspective, you know.

The truth is that no matter how old we are, as long as our mothers are alive, we want our mother. And it's a very powerful relationship if it's healthy.

A body smiles, like, 72 times a day. Where does that smile go? That's what I want to know.

I do a lot of juicing. I don't put a lot of food in my stomach, and I don't mix my foods too much. So if I want to have, like, protein, I'll just eat a bowl of lentils; I won't mix it with a bunch of stuff.

The key is to learn to respect and honor the complications of other people's lives.

Whether you're successful or not, you'll never actually feel the joys of accomplishment unless you love yourself. Success can be very difficult to deal with. You have to stay in the center. If you let your success define you, then you're really just setting yourself up for failure.

A fearful child cannot learn.

We have to embrace obstacles to reach the next stage of joy.

One way to feel good about yourself is to love yourself... to take care of yourself.

Not every relationship works, and that is the truth, and I don't care whether you're a movie star or just a person on the street, normal life. Everybody's normal, relationships are always normal. I think movie stars have a little bit harder time because the cameras are on there all the time. But you have to be who you are.

I like to cook, and I tend to make those one-pot meat dishes of my Hungarian ancestors. Also, I make a great Bolognese.

Oftentimes, actors are looked at as court jesters. They are not looked at as deep-thinking, smart people who do many other things or have gifts in other areas.

If you lose wonder, you've lost everything.

Attention for children is so much about input, and the brain can only filter so much - I don't know how many millions of messages that come through the brain, and we can only filter so much through it.

I believe having religion in your life creates the potential for long-lasting relationships.

So curiosity, I think, is a really important aspect of staying young or youthful.

Men are different than women, and men live with - with some very difficult obstacles. I mean, a man, basically, in his true nature, is to spread his seed, and a woman is a gatherer, and that's kind of the way we're - our limbic system is set up, you know.

Love is something in the heart and in the mind, so why would you chastise anyone for that? And this is something that I feel very strongly about.

I'm deeply, deeply passionate about creating peace and well-being in the classroom, and well-being as a global nation.

I would have been long divorced if I got married.

Peter Sellers was great to work with. A lovely man. A little bit crazy in that he - you know, as I say, it was hard. It was sort of balancing a very delicate spirit on a needle. You know, because you never know where he was going.

A lasting relationship isn't about marriage. It's about compatibility and communication. And you both need to want it to work.

It's nice for a woman to go out and have her own money and her own ability to do what she wants.

I had a tremendous amount of gay friends, so my whole life was basically like that... I never noticed who was gay or who was straight.

People talk about the brain weakening as it ages. Mine feels stronger.

When you get to a certain age, you have to make a decision for yourself: if you want to get old in the industry, and you want to play maybe a few parts that come along now and then - or what else in life interests you?

'Liberation' is an interesting word because you can be liberated from external things and also from your internal dialogue.

My mother was the kind of person who was very much part of her tribe and very much a satellite of her tribe. She was the girl who left her family at the age of 17 and went to Washington. My mother was orphaned at three and then was brought up by my aunt Goldie. So, yes she belonged, but there was a part of her that didn't.

The big money goes to kids and young men - big tent-pole movies, which are expensive but have a great return.

What helps with aging is serious cognition - thinking and understanding. You have to truly grasp that everybody ages. Everybody dies. There is no turning back the clock. So the question in life becomes: What are you going to do while you're here?

I try to stay positive and be very, very active.

I'm generally known as a happy person, but years ago, I suffered from panic and anxiety. I've learned to manage the fear and pain.

To find someone who loves your children like you do is really rare.

I'll bike up the mountain, or I'll do Pilates or spin.

My parents always supported me, but I was put to task. My father thought when I sang, I was sharp; my mother was upset when I wasn't in the first line at recitals.

By living mindfully, you understand that there are many transitions in life. You just go through them.

What is happiness? Happiness, I think, has to come in the beginning, truly, from feeling a sense of well-being within yourself.

My eyes are too big, my nose is too flat, my ears stick out, my mouth is too big and my face is too small... my body is thin as a clarinet and my ankles are so skinny that I wear two pairs of bobby socks because I don't want people to see how thin they are.

I was always a performer, always on stage, but I also always believed I was going to go home, open a dance school, get married, and have what you would call a 'normal' life.

I would like to see a mandate for social and emotional learning absolutely mandated in every state.

Meditation helps people balance and calibrate their left-right brain.

I just love good smells.

All I ever wanted to be was happy.

I don't read much, to tell you the truth, about me, you know. I don't read my articles very much or stuff like that, but I have read things upon occasion, and some of it is true, and some of it isn't true, you know. I mean it's just the way it goes, you know.

Getting older is a fact of life.
