If you're going to go through hell… I suggest you come back learning something.
My lesson here was you do not give up. You hold yourself accountable. You stay grateful. You hold on tight to your friends.
I want people to be blown away when I do what they don't expect.
Daisies are like sunshine to the ground.
Everyone is like a butterfly, they start out ugly and awkward and then morph into beautiful graceful butterflies that everyone loves.
The older you get, the fewer slumber parties there are, and I hate that. I liked slumber parties. What happened to them?
Life is very interesting... in the end, some of your greatest pains, become your greatest strengths.
People are like moths. First they are ugly and awkward, until they break out of their shell and become a beautiful butterfly.
You know you're putting a good thing out into the universe when you put on glitter.
God made a very obvious choice when he made me voluptuous; why would I go against what he decided for me? My limbs work, so I'm not going to complain about the way my body is shaped.
If you are going to go through hell...I suggest you come back learning something.
When things are perfect, that's when you need to worry most.
You can never, never have too many books
I never regret anything. Because every little detail of your life is what made you into who you are in the end.
Oh, I love hugging. I wish I was an octopus, so I could hug 10 people at a time!
When I lay my head on the pillow at night I can say I was a decent person today. That's when I feel beautiful.
There's something liberating about not pretending. Dare to embarrass yourself. Risk.
I'm not insecure. I've been through way too much f**king sh*t to be insecure. I've got huge balls. But I've been humbled. That makes you grateful for every day you have.
In the end, some of your greatest pains become your greatest strengths.
If you don't take risks, you'll have a wasted soul.
Kissing- and I mean like, yummy, smacking kissing - is the most delicious, most beautiful and passionate thing that two people can do, bar none. Better than sex, hands down.
I just want to make sure I have a sense of balance between work and life, because work is my life and the lines can get really blurry.
I mean, I come from a hippie mentality where I just think to know someone, you need to look into their eyes. Eyes are so important. Until they start melon-balling eyes out, I won't be able to get to know someone another way.
I love romance. I'm a sucker for it. I love it so much. It's pathetic.
I never have been insecure, because I see what a waste it is. I know there is a solution to insecurity. I don't tend to be thrown by problems that don't have solutions. And insecurity has a wealth of alternatives.
At 35, I'm definitely starting to feel more like a grown-up than I ever have. There's nothing in my life that is childish or whimsical. Having fun is fantastic and I never want to lose a sense of that - and also, I think, you have to have that to put into your work or else it's going to feel stiff.
You can't live your life blaming your failures on your parents and what they did or didn't do for you. You're dealt the cards that you're dealt. I realised it was a waste of time to be angry at my parents and feel sorry for myself.
I think happiness is a choice. If you feel yourself being happy and can settle in to the life choices you make, then it's great. It's really, really great. I swear to God, happiness is the best makeup.
Sometimes I bust out and do things so permanent. Like tattoos and marriage.
I think that being happy makes the biggest impact on your physical appearance.
I'm not after fame and success and fortune and power. It's mostly that I want to have a good job and have good friends; that's the good stuff in life.
I'm a carb queen. I'll always order macaroni and cheese, but I don't want it to be fancy. I want it to be as close to Kraft Services as it can possibly get!
I still, at hotel rooms, I do this one sort of not-so-cool thing: continually shoving my room service tray in front of someone else's door. Because I don't want the remnants. I don't want to be caught, like, being like the pig that I was at two in the morning.
It's never too late. Don't focus on what was taken away. Find something to replace it, and acknowledge the blessing you have.
I am not someone who is ashamed of my past. I'm actually really proud. I know I made a lot of mistakes, but they, in turn, were my life lessons.
The stories that I want to tell, especially as a director, don't necessarily have a perfect ending because, the older you get, the more you appreciate a good day versus a happy ending. You understand that life continues on the next day; the reality of things is what happens tomorrow.
Kisses, even to the air, are beautiful.
If you're not prepared, and you're not passionate, and you don't push yourself to a level of human exhaustion on every level, mentally and physically and creatively... I've seen directors who approach it casually, and they do somehow maintain better hours... but I could never be that guy. I am up and editing all night.
I've always said that one night, I'm going to find myself in some field somewhere, I'm standing on grass, and it's raining, and I'm with the person I love, and I know I'm at the very point I've been dreaming of getting to.
