Chelsea Victoria Clinton

Chelsea Clinton quotes: kid Clinton’s most impressive words.

“Work really, really hard… and in a way that makes an impact.”

“Determination gets you a long way.”

“Life is not a dress rehearsal.  Life is not about what happens to you, but what you do with what happens to you.”

“We are responsible for our choices.”

“It’s important to be in professions in which you care about the metric of success.”

“Patience is a virtue, but impatience gets things done.”

“Progress has to be continually defended as well as advanced.”

“Role models really matter.  It’s hard to imagine yourself as something you don’t see.”

“I love the right words.  I think economy and precision of language are important.”

“Engaging in the work of the world is hard, but it’s the best kind of work.”

“Celebrate those who have the courage to be second, because I do think that often there really is this claustrophobic pressure to innovate instead of to adapt.”

“I’m sort of obsessed with what works.  And why things work and how they work and who should be doing that work and whether it’s the government or the private sector.  It’s part of what so strongly motivates me.”

“Service is a deceptively profound way to prove not only what you can do for the world, but what you can tell the world to expect from you and your ambitions.”

“Service is an opportunity for young women to really empower themselves.”

“I believe that engaging in the political process is part of being a good person.”

“I hope that young people will also look to politics as a vehicle to not only have their voices heard, but actually to be the change makers that they want to see.  They are disaffected, understandably, but I hope that young people will not only turn out to vote but also run for office.”

“What’s profound and exciting is the way young people are taking advantage of the fact that the internet enables everyone to have a megaphone.  It enables everyone to stand up and say, ‘I deserve to be heard, and I demand that you listen.'”

“Millennials regularly draw ire for their cell phone usage.  They’re mobile natives, having come of age when landlines were well on their way out and pay phones had gone the way of dinosaurs.  Because of their native fluency, Millennials recognize mobile phones can do a whole lot more than make calls, enable texting between friends, or tweeting.”

“What inspires me most are people who imagine and implement solutions to challenges in their own lives, in their communities, in our country and around the world.”

“I’m a pretty competitive person.”

“It’s a widely-held belief that Millennials are obsessed with money.  And it’s also wildly true.  Just don’t mistake it for a fixation with getting rich.”

“My parents and my grandmother inspire me every day, in my work and personal life.”

“My parents taught me to approach the world critically, but also to approach it with a sense of responsibility.”

“I was always deeply aware that I was living in history.”

“I began reading newspapers when I was just four and my parents expected me to have an opinion about what I thought the most important stories were, and then to be able to muster an argument in support of what I thought was right or wrong.  They taught me early on the difference between opinion and fact.  A crucial distinction.”

“I’ve always been incredibly proud of both of my parents and proud of the work I had done privately as a person, both professionally and academically.”

“It is frustrating, because who wants to grow up and follow their parents?  I’ve tried really hard to care about things that were very different from my parents.  I was curious if I could care about money on some fundamental level, and I couldn’t.  That wasn’t the metric of success I wanted in my life.”

“I find empowerment, inspiration, and, in the best sense, obligation from my children.  I didn’t know I could care any more intensely about the things that I already cared about, until I became a mom, and I became the mother of a daughter.”

“I hope that my children will someday be as proud of me as I am of my mom.  I am so grateful to be her daughter.”

“For me it’s just so exciting to have a daughter because I do think she will have even more opportunities than I had, and I had more opportunities than certainly my grandmother had.  It’s the arc of history, always bending toward justice and opportunity, and she will be part of that.”

“For most of my life, I deliberately led a private life and inadvertently led a public life.”

“Having thick skin is an important quality for anyone who wants to do something in the world, and thankfully that’s something I had to develop early on.”

“I’ve always been aware of both how extraordinarily normal and how extraordinarily extraordinary my life has been.  It’s always been important, first to my parents when I was younger, and now very much to me, to live in the world.  I would never want to live in a cloister.  It’s important to me to walk down the street and hear what people are talking about or go for a run on the West Side Highway.”

“Running is the one part of my life in which I fundamentally feel like the observer instead of the observed.”

“I want to be the best daughter and wife and friend and person I can be.  And I want to help empower the people around me to be the best they can be.”

“I feel incredibly grateful that people feel so connected to my family, because those connections are part of what continue to motivate all of us to work as hard as we do.”

“I hope to make a positive, productive contribution, as cheesy as that may sound.”

“And now I am trying to lead a purposefully public life.”

Now hear from her daddy.
