Ellen DeGeneres Quotes

The Ellen Show

Ellen DeGeneres quotes: here are some of Ellen’s best quotes for building a millionaire mindset.

“Find out who you are and be that person.  That’s what your soul was put on this earth to be.  Find that truth, live that truth, and everything else will come.”

“Never follow anyone else’s path, unless you’re in the woods and you’re lost.”

“My point is, life is about balance.  The good and the bad.  The highs and the lows.  The pina and the colada.”

“The world is filled with negativity.  I want people to watch me and think, ‘I feel good, and I’m going to make somebody else feel good today.'”

“Be true to yourself and everything will be fine.”

“I’m a comedian, and I definitely see the humor in a lot of things.  I am also sad a lot.  I cry often and easily.  I think you’re supposed to feel all kinds of things.  You’re supposed to laugh, you’re supposed to cry, you’re not supposed to shove your feelings under the rug.”

“Do things that make you happy within the confines of the legal system.”

“I’d like to be more patient!  I just want everything now.  I’ve tried to meditate, but it’s really hard for me to stay still.  I’d like to try to force myself to do it, because everybody says how wonderful meditation is for you, but I can’t shut my mind up.  So patience and learning is the key.”

“I never see the glass half empty because I drink out the bottle.”

“When you take risks you learn that there will be times when you succeed and there will be times when you fail, and both are equally important.”

“I work really hard at trying to see the big picture and not getting stuck in ego.”

“I learned compassion from being discrimanted against.  Everything bad that’s ever happened to me has taught me compassion.”

“Normally, I try not to pay attention to my haters, but this time I’d like to talk about it, because my haters are my motivators.”

“For me, it’s that I contributed.  That I’m on this planet doing some good and making people happy.  That’s, to me, the most important thing, that my hour of television is positive and upbeat and an antidote for all the negative stuff going on in life.”

“If someone ever says you’re weird, say thank you.”

“While I was doing stand-up, I thought I knew for sure that success meant getting everyone to like me.  So I became whoever I thought people wanted me to be.  I’d say yes when I wanted to say no, and I even wore a few dresses.”

“Our flaws are what makes us human.  If we can accept them as part of who we are, they really don’t even have to be an issue.”

“It’s our challenges and obstacles that give us layers of depth and make us interesting.”

“Most comedy is based on getting a laugh at somebody else’s expense.  And I find that that’s just a form of bullying in a major way.  So I want to be an example that you can be funny and be kind, and make people laugh without hurting somebody else’s feelings.”

“Life is like one big Mardi Gras.  But instead of showing boobs, show people your brain.  And if they like what they see, you’ll have more beads than you know what to do with.”

“It’s failure that gives you the proper perspective on success.”

“This is my real secret to being a joyful person: I make my life easy.  I spend more time being grateful for what I have instead of focusing on what isn’t working.  I no longer believe that people have to do things my way and that I have to be perfect.”

“There’s no one way to dance.  And that’s kind of my philosophy about everything.”

“I had no intention of becoming a comedian.  I just wanted to make people happy.  I tried everything.  I shucked oysters, I painted houses, I sold vacuum cleaners.  But there was always a voice saying, ‘You should be doing something different.’  And it was usually my boss and I was being fired.”

“I enjoy growing older and wiser and learning from my mistakes every single day.”

“The definition of success changes.  Success is to live your life with integrity and not give in to peer pressure to be something you’re not.  Follow your passion, stay true to yourself.”

“Embrace who you are.  Literally.  Hug yourself.  Accept who you are.”

“True beauty is not related to what color your hair is or what color your eyes are.  True beauty is about who you are as a human being, your principles, your moral compass.”

“Here are the values that I stand for: honesty, equality, kindness, compassion, treating people the way you want to be treated, and helping those in need.  To me, those are traditional values.”

“It makes a big difference in your life when you stay positive.”

“We focus so much on our differences, and that is creating, I think, a lot of chaos and negativity and bullying in the world.  And I think if everybody focused on what we all have in common, which is, we all want to be happy – we’d be much better off.”

“I believe we’re all put on this planet for a purpose, and we all have a different purpose.”

“We can sit and worry about what’s going to happen to us two weeks from now.  I’d rather focus on the amazing things happening right in front of us.”

“Be open to learning new lessons, even if they contradict the lessons you learned yesterday.”

“You just have to keep driving down the road.  It’s going to bend and curve and you’ll speed up and slow down, but the road keeps going.”

“Find out who you are and figure out what you believe in.  Even if it’s different from what your neighbors believe in and different from what your parents believe in.  Stay true to yourself.  Have your own opinion.  Don’t worry about what people say about you or think about you.  Let the naysayers nay.  They will eventually grow tired of naying.”
