Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey quotes: Mimi’s most shareable quotes.

“Stay triumphant, keep on living.  Stay on your toes, get off the ropes.  Don’t let ’em ever count you out.”

“You really have to look inside yourself and find your own inner strength, and say, ‘I’m proud of what I am and who I am, and I’m just going to be myself.'”

“If you believe in yourself enough, just hold on tight and don’t let go!  You can make it happen.”

“Lord knows dreams are hard to follow, but don’t let anyone tear them away.”

“Never, never listen to anybody that tries to discourage you.”

“You can’t live with regrets.  It’s about the journey.  You have to embrace it.”

“You don’t have to be afraid of what you are.”

“After every storm, if you look hard enough, a rainbow appears.”

“This is for all of you out there tonight, reaching for a dream – don’t ever give up!  Never ever listen to anyone, when they try to discourage you, because they do that, believe me!  Whatever you’re going through in your life, don’t ever give up.”

“We have to go through certain things in order to appreciate life and learn lessons.”

“Sometimes, life can kinda be like a rollercoaster ride.  It’s like you’re going along and everything seems cool.  And it’s not like you’re looking down, but you’re not necessarily looking up to see who’s really in control.  When I was little, I used to be so scared of rollercoasters, but eventually, you have to face your fears.”

“It’s no big secret that my life has always been kinda like a rollercoaster.  I’ve had my ups and downs and I’ve had moments when it felt like I was being twisted and turned, when my life seemed to be upside down and inside out and every which way.  And just when I thought the scariest part was over, something even more horrifying would happen.  But then, after all the hysteria, everything stopped.  There was a moment of peace.  I had gained a deeper kind of faith and I knew it was all part of God’s bigger plan for me.  So, if whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, I guess I’m strong.  It’s kinda like being on a rollercoaster.  If you don’t get on the ride, you won’t experience the adventure.”

“Just be true to you and work really hard.  I’m so proud of the women who have come to tell their stories, because I didn’t do it, and I should have done it.  That’s an incredible accomplishment.”

“I started writing poetry when I was six.  I had this teacher who didn’t believe the poems I’d bring in were mine because they were dark and sad.  But I wrote about what I experienced in my childhood.”

“I think one of the reasons I pushed myself so hard and worked so hard is because I never felt special.  Basically, I started singing when I started talking.  Music has just been my saving grace my whole life.”

“I look around and see the things I have, and I remember not having them.  That is one thing that keeps me grounded.  I’m definitely the same person I was.  I never lose me, I never lose the real person.”

“I think the greatest gift to me is that I can express myself in songs.  It helps me get through some of the hardest times of my life.  It also helps me celebrate some of the best times.”

“I always sang and I always wrote… it’s just having that ambition.  You really can’t let go of your dreams.”

“My fans have made all my career moments special for me.  They are the ones that have gotten me through every single thing – good times and bad, they are who I go to and lean on.  I am very thankful for that.”

“Being a mother is probably the hardest job in the world.  I feel like, in a lot of ways, children come into the world to teach us.”

“Once I was a prisoner lost inside myself with the world surrounding me, wandering through the misery, but now I am free.  Free to love, free to laugh, free to soar, free to shine, free to give.”

“There’s a light in me that shines brightly.  They can try, but they can’t take that away from me.”

“I’m far from perfect.  I’m still learning.  I overworked myself, and I paid the price.  I consider the breakdown a breakthrough.  I needed to hit rock bottom.  I needed to understand the cost of pushing so hard; fighting so hard against the system.”

“I work myself into the ground.  But I think I’m a nice friend and a good person, and I try to do my work as best I can.”

“I know I can be diva-ish sometimes, but I have to be in control.  The nature of my life, the nature of what I do, is divadom, it really is.”

“Nothing that’s ever happened has taken away the optimist in me.  It’s always, ‘Whatever – let’s go to Disneyland.’  Yes, I have my bleak, tortured-artist moments, but you have to hold on to what’s positive.”

“No stress, no fights.  I’m leaving it all behind.  No tears, no time to cry.  Just making the most of life.”

“To quote Frank Sinatra, ‘Regrets, I’ve had a few, but then again, too few to mention.'”

My goal is to have a career that stands.”

“I’ve been blessed to live my dream more than half my life, so I want to help give that back to someone else.”

“I’m really fortunate.  I’m really happy, and I’m really, really lucky to be where I am.”

“So when you feel like hope is gone, look inside you and be strong and you’ll finally see the truth – that a hero lies in you.”
