Celine Dion quotes: Canadian singer and businesswoman’s most quoted words.

“If you follow your dreams, it means you follow your heart.  If you do follow your heart, I don’t think you can go wrong.”

“It’s the moment you think you can’t, that you can.”

“The only failure is not knowing how to be happy.”

“There’s always a new thing happening to me that’s even more extraordinary, so pressure gets harder.  But I like it when it’s hard.  Anyone can do it when it’s easy.  When it’s hard and you can do it good, you’re proud of yourself.  There’s going to be more pressure as the years go by, that’s for sure.  But I think I’m a hard worker and I’m ready for that.  As long as I believe in what I’m doing, the pressure is okay with me.”

“I don’t just sing for free.  It’s my work.  You’re paid for what you do.  And I work hard.”

“Everything that I decide to do means something, otherwise I don’t do it.”

“What do you say to taking chances?”

“Don’t make your career be your life.  Let it be your passion.  Let it bring you pleasure.  But don’t let it become your identity.  You are so much more valuable than that.”

“The hardest thing to find in life is balance – especially the more success you have, the more you look to the other side of the gate.  What do I need to stay grounded, in touch, in love, connected, emotionally balanced?  Look within yourself.”

“My kids give me the balance to live right.”

“My feet are definitely more grounded than before.  And I know that I’m not holding onto a dream.  I’m holding onto my life.”

“I didn’t have any of those good assets to have successful teenage years.  It was hard.  And what saved me was definitely my whole family.  I knew where I was coming from and where I was going.”

“I worked really hard, and I surpassed myself… I didn’t have, visually, what it took.  I was not pretty, I had teeth problems, and I was very skinny.  I didn’t fit the mold.”

“I’m very comfortable in my skin.”

“If there is something that has guided my life, it’s my wish to excel and go farther, to the maximum of my abilities, to the top of my goals, my hopes and my dreams.”

“Life imposes things on you that you can’t control, but you still have the choice of how you’re going to live through it.”

“Don’t be so familiar and so much into the details.  Keep people dreaming.  Close the window, and make them wonder.”

“I think it bothers people to see people that are happy and successful.  So they try to find what’s wrong with them.”

“Love comes to those who believe it, and that’s the way it is.”

“I knew it was going to be the most extraordinary thing in my life, but how powerful it is, you can never know until you have a baby.”

“Golf is a search for perfection, for balance.  It’s about meditation and concentration.  You have to use hand and brain.”

“There’s no such thing as aging, but maturing and knowledge.  It’s beautiful, I call that beauty.”

“When I do something, I do it all the way.  I’ve been in show business so many years.  I’ve achieved a lot of things.”

“For me, singing was real life, not two plus two equals four.”

“There’s one way to do showbiz, if you want to do it perfectly, you have to be disciplined and you have to be ready to work really hard.”

“There’s been nothing but discipline, discipline, discipline all my life.”

“I am extremely disciplined.  I learned it when I was a little girl.  In a household with 14 children it couldn’t otherwise be done.”

“I didn’t feel the pressure to try and outdo anything.  I proved myself before, so now I can enjoy myself.”

“I have records in gold, in platinum, I have two Oscars, I have Grammys and so on.”

“I love to sing and perform.  It is what I do and love.  It completes my life.”

“I’m not thinking with my head, I’m talking with my heart.”

“I’m here because I want to be with people.  I want to enter their lives.”

“As a singer, I’ve had many opportunities to travel, and one thing I’ve learned is that through my music, I can be accepted by people all over the world.  I often wonder why so many of us can’t accept people who are different here, in our country?  It’s just not fair to be prejudiced against those whose race, religion, or color aren’t the same as ours.”

“Before I needed to prove things to myself, to the industry.  Now it’s more than that.  I don’t have to do this, I want to do this.”

“I’m not looking for career attention, for more success, more money.  I’m just singing songs I chose because I loved them.”

“This is my big return, for sure.  Every time I do something, it is entirely my whole self or not at all.”

“I often buy myself presents.  Sometimes I will spend $100,000 in one day in a posh boutique.”

“Some people do drugs, I buy shoes!”

“At home, we don’t listen to our music – we listen to other people’s music.  It keeps you attached to the show business world.”

“I’m not in competition with anybody but myself.  My goal is to beat my last performance.”

“I was not a good-lookin’ girl.  I was extremely skinny.  I wasn’t pretty.  I wasn’t cool.”

“I’ve never been cool – and I don’t care.”

“I have to stand tall and strong because this is my way of living: stand tall, be positive, pick your battles, do the best you can and to live for today, not for tomorrow, for today, and know nothing is perfect, not everything you want will happen.”

“You were my strength when I was weak; you were my voice when I couldn’t speak; you were my eyes when I couldn’t see; you saw the best there was in me; lifted me up when I couldn’t reach, you gave me faith cuz you believed.  I’m everything I am because you loved me.”

“Near, far wherever you are… you’re here in my heart.”
