Kirstie Alley Quotes

Kirstie Louise Alley

Kirstie Alley quotes: about turning weight gain into wealth, if there’s a political play in her future, her billion dollar ambition, and more.

“I think the biggest accomplishment anyone can achieve is to be the cause of something, rather than the effect.  A cause makes something happen – ideally, a positive outcome, such as losing weight, finding someone amazing or getting a new job.  It puts you in a position of control and confidence, rather than reaction and reluctance.”

“You’ll never be disappointed if you always keep an eye on uncharted territory, where you’ll be challenged and growing and having fun.”

“People change, not necessarily in negative ways.  Sometimes goals and intentions in life aren’t aligned.  It’s just choices we make in life.”

“There’s always somebody older, richer, more desperate than you.”

“You’re not going to live your life unscathed.”

“I stay positive because it’s the only way to live.  When I play ball, I play hardball.”

“Smile, don’t frown.  Look up, don’t look down.  Believe in yourself.  Don’t let yourself go.  Just be who you are.  And let your life flow.”

“It’s funny.  No matter how hard you try, you can’t close your heart forever.  And the minute you open it up, you never know what’s going to come in.  But when it does, you just have to go for it!  Because if you don’t, there’s no point in being here.”

“I love marriage.  I failed at marriage, but I’d rather go into anything with gusto and fail than go into it half-assed.”

“When push comes to shove, it ain’t the science that’s going to lift you up – it’s the belief, the spiritual side of life, that’s going to lift you up, no matter what religion you are.”

“No matter what parents do, kids retain their uniqueness.”

“There’s a lot more to life than how fat or thin you are.”

“If you stop exercising, which I did, and if you stop watching your caloric intake, which I did, you’re gonna get fat.”

“I am the one who got myself fat, who did all the eating.  So I had to take full responsibility for it.  I have more energy than I’ve ever had in my life.  I feel normal.  I have my game again!  I think I’m back in my element.”

“At first, when I was a spokesperson for Jenny Craig, it was all about me – I want to get thin, I want to do this – me, me, me.  And then I realized that it actually helped other people.  I’ve gotten thousands and thousands of letters or messages from people who lost weight because of me.”

“I’m not a doctor or a nutritionist – I’m a regular person like you who has been struggling with her weight and searching and praying for a weight loss program to end that forever.  Now my dream is a reality.”

“When I’m at my best, I’m wearing a six.  When you see yourself pick out the six… you want to wear the tags on the outside of your clothes.”

“I’m the girl that when I’m 80 I want to look 60.  When I’m 60 I want to look 40.  I like the 20-year-younger look.”

“I’m happy when I’m juggling, but I feel like I’ve gone from, like, three balls to 10 bowling balls.  But, that’s a good problem.  I don’t really have a complaint about that.”

“If someone has not seen you do it before, they assume that you can’t do it.  I think that they forget that actors are people that act.”

“I might be able to be a politician but I have no desire to be a politician.  Although, you know, I might like to be a mayor of someplace sometime or the honorary mayor; I think I’d be a goodwill mayor in some little town.  I’m good at waving, I’m good at riding in convertibles and I’m good at rallying the people up in the town… so maybe I will be mayor at some point.”

“I’d like to prove to women my age that there can still be good years ahead of us.”

“I want to be a billionaire, and then I want to change something in the world for real.”
