„Я не выгляжу как Халли Бери. Но есть шанс, что она будет выглядеть как я.“

„When you are kind to someone in trouble, you hope they'll remember and be kind to someone else. And it'll become like a wildfire. Когда вы добры к кому-то, кто в беде, то вы надеетесь, что они будут помнить это и также будут добры к другим. И это будет как лесной пожар.“


„I am where I am because I believe in all possibilities.“

„Art and life are subjective. Not everybody's gonna dig what I dig, but I reserve the right to dig it.“

„We're here for a reason. I believe a bit of the reason is to throw little torches out to lead people through the dark.“

„I don't have pet peeves like some people. I have whole kennels of irritation.“

„Normal is just a cycle on the washing machine.“

„Now, I've always known that there were bullies in the world. We've seen a lot of it in politics lately as well as in daily life. You see it where people who may be stronger, or bigger, or better with verbiage than other folks... show off. To me, that's what bullying is, showing off. It's saying, I'm better than you, I can take you down. Not just physically, but emotionally.“ Is It Just Me?: Or is it nuts out there?


„I would love to teach every kid to say "fuck." Hang on, now, hang on, listen to why. The reason is because to me, that is a word that doesn't have any effect. But "stupid" and "dummy"? You can say it to someone who is six and you can say it to someone who is a hundred and six and they will hunch their shoulders and it will be like somebody kicked them in the stomach because they are harsh, ugly words.“ Is It Just Me?: Or is it nuts out there?

„an actress can only play a woman, I'm an actor I can play anything“

„It you want to be somebody, If you want to go some where, you've got to wake up and pay attention“

„Her least favorite thing: VOLUNTARY IGNORANCE“


„Taking action is hard, but know what? Enduring a bad situation can be its own hell.“ Is It Just Me?: Or is it nuts out there?

„And for some reason, there seems to be no internal policeman for a bully that says maybe you're hurting somebody's feelings. Or worse, maybe you're going to push this perons too far and they'll do something terrible. Something's not processing correctly in a bully's head. It doesn't seem to occur to them that what they're doing is corssing a line that shouldn't be crossed. And it's really, in my mind, no different than taking on defenseless kids. You do it just because you can.
It's an exercise in power; but it's also meant to dinsintegrate someone's Self. It's meant to take away their sense of who they are. And why? Because they're not as strong, or as bit, or as witty.
Bullies are ball-less, soul-less creatures to me. And they're not just children, they're adults too.
It's a terrorist act.
It's meant to make you feel afraid. It's meant to make you feel powerless to take care of the situation you find yourself in.“
Is It Just Me?: Or is it nuts out there?

„It never occurred to me that somehow women did know about it. It just never occurred to me. Yes I am wearing sneakers too. You are in a suit, I am comfortable. So when she explained to me that this was the first event really of its kind, it floored me. So I called my daughter who is in her 30s now and I said “do you know what endometriosis is?” She said, “what? Have to pack the pack the busters.”

I said “no man, you have never heard of it?” No she said. I do not know what it is, and it occurred to me that my 30-year-old daughter who I told about endometriosis and it didn’t stick. If she didn’t know, and she is one of the hippest people I know, and her daughter doesn’t know, she has 19-year-old and she is a 13-year-old. The boy, we don’t care much about if he knows about it so much. There is other stuff for him to learn. Like how to roll a condom, things like that.

You know, and it occurred to me that if they didn’t know that there were hundreds of thousands girls out there that don’t know. It is not because their mothers don’t want to tell them, because it’s not religion, it’s pure ignorance. We don’t know, we don’t have the information, we have it now, and so now is why this very first gathering is happening. Now is why we’re all sitting here looking really fabulous as you are...

[Whoopi Goldberg on endometriosis awareness from the 2009 Blossom Ball]“

„Is there any forgiveness? If somebody does something wrong, we now have copped this "off with the head" attitude, which, I confess, feels great sometimes, but come on. Why do we paint everyone with the same brush? Why does it seem more & more we want people ruined rather than rehabilitated?“
