Melania Trump quotes: on what it’s like being hitched to The Donald, chillin’ in the White House, balancing bein’ a mom, biz, politics – and more.

“Believe in yourself.  Be proud of who you are, no matter who you are married to, are dating, or who your parents are.  Be your own person.  And take care of yourself, because when you take care of yourself first, you will do a much better job taking care of others.”

“As citizens of this great nation, it is kindness, love, and compassion for each other that will bring us together – and keep us together.”

“I always believe that you need to treat each other with respect and kindness and compassion, but also stay true to yourself.  Just listen to your heart, but be yourself.”

“My parents impressed on me the values that you work hard for what you want in life; that your word is your bond and you do what you say and keep your promise; that you treat people with respect, they taught me to show the values and morals in my daily life.  That is the lesson that I continue to pass along to our son.”

“I take people the way they are.  You could work all your life to change them, and they never will.  What’s the point?  They need to be who they are.  You cannot change a person.  Let them be the way they are.”

“You judge a society by how it treats its citizens.  We must do our best to ensure that every child can live in comfort and security, with the best possible education.”

“I think it’s important to give a child room to make mistakes in order to learn.  Mistakes build wings so later in life they can fly and go on their own.  Let them fall once in awhile.  Be their friend and parent as well.  When they’re in trouble, they will come to you first.  Don’t try to change their opinion.”

“I am a full-time mom; that is my first job.  The most important job ever.  I started my business when he started school.  When he is in school I do my meetings, my sketches, and everything else.  I cook him breakfast.  Bring him to school.  Pick him up.  Prepare his lunch.  I spend the afternoon with him.  Sometimes I have obligations, but I also think children need to see a parent do what her passion is.  It is a good example for a child.  So the child can find passion as well and follow that passion in the future.”

“I don’t have a nanny.  I have a chef, and I have my assistant, and that’s it.  I do it myself.  You know, those hours with your child are really important ones, even if it’s just the two of you, being quiet in the car together.”

“I’m very political.  I’m not political in public; I’m political at home.”

“I am honored to serve as First Lady, I will use that wonderful privilege to try to help people in our country who need it the most.  One of the many causes dear to my heart is helping children and women.”

“I like to help women to spend not a lot of money – to feel powerful, elegant, glamorous, to feel good about themselves.”

“It is part of my life, being in front of the camera all the time.  It’s not something that’s new to me.”

“I love my childhood.  It was a beautiful childhood.”

“I always loved fashion.  My mother was a fashion designer, so it was always in my blood.”

“I was always very tall and skinny.  Sometimes I was teased, but I was never embarrassed.  I always liked myself.  Even when other kids teased me, I didn’t care.  I knew what I wanted to do.  I found my passion at such an early age.  It helped with my confidence.”

“I was five years old when I did my first catwalk and did commercials at 16.  I went professional after my studies.”

“I don’t follow what is in fashion now; I just listen to myself and what I like.  I wait for the right occasion or see how I feel each day.”

“My style has stayed pretty consistent over the years.  I always wear what I like and what is appropriate for the occasion.”

“You will not stop me to do what I feel is right.  I would prefer that they would focus on what I do and my initiatives, [more] than what I wear.”

“You know, to marry a man like Donald, you need to know who you are.  You need to know who you are, and you need to be very strong and smart.”

“When you have love and respect and the best time together, it feels fantastic.  It’s really something special.  Sometimes they say love is hard to find.  When you meet the right person everything seems fantastic.  We work very hard, both of us.  It’s a lot of responsibility for a woman to be married to a man like my husband.  I need to be quick, smart and intelligent.  My life is very normal­­ – for me.  Maybe for some people they would not think that.  But for me it is.  I know my husband.  We have a great relationship.  We are both very independent.  We know what our roles are and we are happy with them.  I think the mistake some people make is they try to change the man they love after they get married.  You cannot change a person.  You accept the person.  He loves business – he breathes business.  I love that about him, I love that.  Doesn’t bother me.  I am very independent.  It is important to understand each other.  If you need to change someone it will never work.  You will try your whole life and never succeed.”

“I think it is more about quality time instead of quantity.  I don’t think you need to be with your husband every minute of every day.  Both people should do what their passion is and then get together in the mornings and evenings and share and experience life and have a great time.  You know that saying, ‘Work hard and play harder?’  That’s what we do.”

“I give him my opinions, and sometimes he takes them in, and sometimes he does not.  Do I agree with him all the time?  No.”

“I don’t want to change him.  And he doesn’t want to change me.”

“We are very strong, we are two independent people, thinking on their own, and we have a very open conversation.  And I think that’s very healthy for the relationship.”

“I am not a ‘yes’ person.  No matter who you are married to, you still need to lead your life.”

“I am a mother, a daughter, a wife, a friend, and the First Lady of the United States.  I consider myself caring, compassionate, strong, independent, very detail-oriented and stay true to myself.”

“I’m staying true to myself.  I want to live a meaningful life.  And that’s the most important to me.  I know what my priorities are.  And I’m focused on that.”

“[On White House life] I don’t feel like a prisoner.  I’m enjoying it.  It will not last forever; it’s a special time.”
