Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen quotes: child actresses turned fashion entrepreneurs, here are the Olsen twins’ top quotes.

“The way I see it, you have to take every chance you get because there may not be another one.  You have to learn from your mistakes because nobody’s perfect.  You have to laugh, love, and live every day as if it’s your last.”

“I think everything happens for a reason, so there is no such thing as fail.”

“I find it’s better to focus on what’s in front of you and to keep putting one foot in front of the other.”

“There are just some really beautiful people in the world.  When you’re walking down the street, or you’re at a restaurant, someone catches your eye because they have their own look.  It goes way beyond what they’re wearing, into their mannerisms, the way they smile, or just the way they hold themselves.”

“We think differently, we feel differently, we respond to different things or we react to different things.  But we have the same ultimate goals in mind.”

“We are so fortunate to have each other.  We hired every person on our team.  We have full control, and we’re lucky to be under one roof.  That you cannot take for granted.  When you have your sister and BFF by your side, you pretty much can’t go wrong.”

“I always looked at myself, even as a kid, as a businesswoman.”

“It’s weird to be called a celebrity or talk about it.  I don’t talk about being a celebrity in my business meetings.  I don’t talk about it with my friends.  It’s not a part of my life.  It’s a media perception of who I am.”
