Sandra Annette Bullock

Sandra Bullock quotes: actor, producer, philanthropist, mega millionaire, here are Bullock’s best quotes.

“The rule is you have to dance a little bit in the morning before you leave the house because it changes the way you walk out in the world.”

“I’ve learned that success comes in a very prickly package.  Whether you choose to accept it or not is up to you.  It’s what you choose to do with it, the people you choose to surround yourself with.  Always choose people that are better than you.  Always choose people that challenge you and are smarter than you.  Always be the student.  Once you find yourself to be the teacher, you’ve lost it.”

“I realized that conforming didn’t accomplish anything.  Do your own thing.  As long as you learn that, you’re cool.”

“Savor what you are and not what everyone else wants you to be.”

“I do believe in choice, the freedom of choice, and carving out your own happiness.”

“We don’t have to pretend to be something that we’re not.”

“There’s no race, no religion, no class system, no color – nothing – no sexual orientation, that makes us better than anyone else.  We’re all deserving of love.”

“People care about people who care about themselves.”

“I’ve made peace with the fact that the things that I thought were weaknesses or flaws were just me.  I like them.”

“Stop being scared of the unknown, because anything I worried about didn’t happen.  Other stuff happened.  The unknown, we can’t do anything about.”

“We all grow into the beautiful person that we’re supposed to be, some earlier, some later.”

“True beauty isn’t something that will wash off in the shower at the end of the day.  It’s something that’s still there, before you go to bed and wake up in the morning.  And, you know, they always say that’s inner beauty, but it is.”

“Every day is amazing, even when it’s awful, because everything is for a reason.  I know that this horrible thing that’s happening today is going to bring something so amazing.”

“I haven’t always acted or reacted in a way that made me proud, but I didn’t make that same mistake twice, and I think that’s what I love about adversity is that it always reminds me of what’s really valuable in life.”

“It’s just too much if you make your career everything.  It is everything when you’re doing it.  But you have to find things you love just as much.”

“Composing means you have a beginning, middle, and end… and a fluidity to what you’re doing.”

“I’m a true believer in karma.  You get what you give, whether it’s bad or good.”

“If you can’t pronounce it, you probably shouldn’t be putting it in your body or in your environment.”

“Fame means when your computer modem is broken, the repair guy comes out to your house a little faster.”

“I have an expensive hobby: buying homes, redoing them, tearing them down, and building them up the way they want to be built.  I want to be an architect.”

“I like lists, I’m controlling, I like order.  I’m difficult on every level.”

“I still love being creative.  I still love the aspects of working together with great, talented people.  But it’s a weird dichotomy; I’m being blessed with more opportunities, but I’m going to be taking less of them.”

“I feel a huge responsibility to anyone who’s younger than me, in helping them take the road less traveled, or finding no road at all and blazing a new trail.”

“I’m always in this shape, that shape, whatever shape you like the most.  I am always in various stages of shapes.  If the woman needs to be more soft I’ll gain weight and then I’ll lose weight for another film that I did where I wanted her to be more wiry.  I enjoy using my body as something that helps me get to a character.”

“When I was a struggling actress in New York in my 20s I worked in a burger joint called Diane’s Uptown.  I actually loved waiting tables.  I still keep who I was in my mind and never take anything for granted.”

“I was always incredibly driven and found it impossible to relax.  I felt that if I slacked off for a minute to enjoy myself, then so many things would be missed.”

“All the knowledge that I have doesn’t necessarily make me brilliant, but I love acquiring knowledge and then sharing it with everybody else.”

“Picking roles, my way of choosing them is vastly different now than it was a long time ago, but I can only be that way now because of what I’ve learned from the past.  So I’m choosing now not to choose any work, because when you’ve had such a nice ride – unexpected rides and fulfilling rides – you really don’t want to take a step backwards.  It’s really made me satisfied in a way that I wasn’t looking for, but I was blessed with it and now I feel really full, in a good way, where I don’t need to rush out and go find something.”

“The Hollywood I know has allowed me opportunity after opportunity to keep doing new things and not send me out to pasture.  I don’t want to go to pasture.  It’s cold.  I’m allergic to grass.  And the cows are mean.”

“I don’t want to be seen as the kind of person who does things and then expects publicity in return.  I look at it as, I happen to have the means, I have the energy, and I have the passion to do what I want to do.”

“My goal now is to remember every place I’ve been, only do things I love, and not say yes when I don’t mean it.”

“I’m one of those people who knows how lucky she is.  And every day, I look around the house, and I count my blessings.  They’re all there under that roof.”

“I’m just having fun.  And giving a sort of second shot at childhood and life – and I need to be present to do it.”

“I am exactly where I want to be now.  You can’t go backward.  I’m not going backward.  I’m grateful that I’m here, blessed to have what I have.”

“Go find your joy.  It’s what you’re going to remember in the end.”
