Katie Holmes Quotes

Kate Noelle Holmes

Katie Holmes quotes: on her ex, cashing checks, being a mom, and more.

“We all keep dreaming, and luckily, dreams come true.”

“If you can dream it, you can achieve it.”

“Your dreams will happen, but they might not happen when you want them to.  There are some things you just have to wait for.”

“Definitely trust yourself.  Work hard.  Be honest with yourself.  And life can be joyful.  It is joyful.  Just give it your all and it’s all going to work out.”

“You have to continue to do the things you want to do and not let outside forces dictate.”

“You’ve got to keep going.  In every part of your life.  Focus on the positive.  Stay creative.  Go to things that interest you.  Do work that’s fulfilling.  Challenge yourself.  What’s amazing about the human spirit, there are so many people doing inspiring things.  If you focus on that, it makes your life richer.”

“It’s not who you are underneath, it’s what you do that defines you.”

“It’s important to try to be creative.  I think people should have passions.”

“Focus on what you’re passionate about and how you feel when you achieve your goals.  Be true to your sense of opinions.  Reward [yourself] for hard work, not necessarily the results of the hard work.”

“Do the best you can with what you have to work with, because you all have a lot to work with – more than you may know.  You’ve all been through a lot, you’ve had your own wild and precious lives, and may have been kicked around a little and learned how tough life can be.”

“If people believe in you, it makes you want to believe in yourself, and vice versa.  People react to your confidence.”

“The odds are stacked against everybody.  So if you’re waiting for a sign, this is it.  You are the person who’s going to go out there and make things happen for yourself.  And that’s a terrifying and amazing responsibility.  You deserve joy – not in 10 years, but now.  So try to be equal parts tough and gentle with yourself.  Take things one step at a time.  Work hard when no one is looking.  And don’t let anybody say you never called them back.”

“We live in a country where we have so many options, and for so many people in the world, our worst days would almost be a dream come true for them.  Try to continue your education for yourself on your own terms.”

“With age, I’ve gained confidence.”

“I’ve been so lucky in life to know people who have given me their wisdom, experience, and advice while I was growing up.”

“It’s nice to do something about something that scares you rather than just run from it and hope that someone saves you.”

“You go in thinking you have to do this all by yourself, and what I learned was: no, when you hire great people, they do so much for you.”

“The best reward is one you can listen to.”

“You may be pretty, and you may be talented, but nobody will remember that if you’re mean.”

“I have to stay creative in every aspect of my life.”

“I work very hard, but I also really enjoy time with my family as well.  So I take everything as it comes.”

“Definitely being a mom changes your perspective on everything.”

“Becoming a mother has been the most amazing experience – in an instant you become strong.  You have to be a little bit wiser; it’s the most important job in the world.”

“Raise good humans.  I do a lot to put perspective on life.  We’re trying to raise good humans, and some days, we’re better at it than others.  You don’t always get treats.”

“You really need to support each other, help people through whatever it is they’re going through.  I think we all need to just ease up.  Ease up on the expectations, and the worrying.  We’re all trying to do the best we can.”

“I think the basics are very important: the number one thing is making sure my child feels loved.  And good about herself.  And that what she does and who she is, is special and important, and should be celebrated.  And my mom always said, ‘No one loves you like your mother.’”

“I feel so blessed to do what I do, but there’s nothing in the world better than watching your child succeed.”

“You do the best you can.  Some days you feel really good about yourself and some days you don’t.”

“I’m learning every day.”

“I’m really into my running workout.  Running really helps me clear my head and makes me feel good, especially when I’m stressed.”

“Growing up, I always had my dreams set on being an actor.”

“I always try to go into a project with a goal in mind of what I want out of it for myself, in terms of what I want to learn.”

“It’s the life of an actor.  We don’t really have a lot of choice in the matter.  You have dry spells, and then you have times when there is a lot of opportunity.”

“I don’t want that moment [the divorce with Tom Cruise] in my life to define me, to be who I am.  I don’t want that to be what I’m known as.  I was an actor before, an actor during, and an actor now.”

“I’m all right.  Thank you!”

“I just want to be inspired.”

“I really can’t deny it, I am who I am.  I’m pretty normal.  I’m not that smooth type of girl.”

“I don’t have any fear now, I don’t have a lot of rules for myself, and I don’t take myself that seriously.”

“I never really look back.  I just approach life taking it one day at a time.  I’m just really grateful.”

“I feel really, really lucky.  I feel the best response to all the stories is just going about my life: enjoying life, making movies, being a good mom and focusing on that.  Because if you’re doing well, what can they say?”

“I feel very lucky.  I have a career I really love.  When I sit back and reflect, it’s like, ‘Wow!  I am very grateful.'”
