Demi Lovato

“Getting in the gym makes me feel the best I possibly can, so I make sure I get that in. It’s all about finding your strength, feeling comfortable in your own skin. I never thought I’d be in such a great place. That’s the beauty of working on yourself and taking care of yourself. You get to places where you never thought you’d be.”  People Magazine

 

Hailee Steinfeld

“It’s easy to get caught up in what other people have to say about you – and I have myself – but you can’t please everybody. If you’re happy, that all that really matters.

As long as I love what I’m wearing and feel great in it, then there’s no reason to care what anybody else thinks. If you go out and feel comfortable and confident, you can rock anything and people will see that. And if they don’t, then it’s their own opinion.”  People Magazine


 

 

 

 

Barbra Streisand

 

“I was an ugly duckling and a loner. I was known as the kid who had a good voice and no father. My mother laughed at my ambition. She never hugged me or said words like, ‘I love you.’ I never would have ended up doing what I’m doing. I owe her my career. I was always trying to prove to her that I was worthy of being somebody. If you don’t feel loved as a child, you spend your life trying to get that love. People who have two parents who love them are very lucky. They are not left with a hole to fill. You have to fill it with yourself, eventually.” CLOSER

Ellen Degeneres

On the 20th Anniversary of Ellen’s coming out episode: 

“No matter what the cost is at the time, it is always important that whoever the essence of us is, we are born individually, we are all unique, and we are supposed to be that exact person. We’re not supposed to conform. We’re not supposed to be like somebody else. As long as you stay true to exactly who are are, you will be rewarded in ways that you can’t imagine.” Ellen Degeneres Show


 

 

 

 

Bethany Mota

“I want to tell everyone here that you are capable of so much. I used to limit myself all of the time and I would think of things that I wanted to do and I’d be like, ‘there’s no way that I can do that,’ and I’d dismiss the thought from my mind. But, making YouTube Videos is one of the things that I just went for and I’m like, ‘there’s no way anyone’s gonna wanna watch my videos, I’m way too weird.’ But I did it anyway and now I have this amazing community. I want to remind you that you are all strong and powerful so don’t allow anyone to limit you and most of all, never limit yourself because you’re incredible.”  Teen Choice Awards


 

 

 

 

Lupita Nyongo

“You can’t eat beauty, it doesn’t feed you…beauty was not a thing that I could acquire or consume, it was something that I just had to be. You can’t rely on how you look to sustain you. What actually sustains us, what is fundamentally beautiful, is compassion–for yourself and for those around you. That kind of beauty inflames the heart and enchants the soul.”
