Pink Quotes

Alecia Beth Moore

Pink quotes: one of the highest paid musicians, here are Pink’s wisest words.

“You can’t move mountains by whispering at them.”

“Take chances, make mistakes.  That’s how you grow.  Pain nourishes your courage.  You have to fail in order to practice being brave.”

“To experience the good you have to have seen the bad; plus it makes you appreciate blessings more.  Tough times taught me to be a fighter.”

“Don’t lose your passion or the fighter that’s inside of you.”

“If you never concede a goal, you’re going to win more games than you lose.”

“To possess dignity is to be worthy of respect.  Worthy of high esteem.  Absorb this: you are worthy of respect.”

“Once you figure out what respect tastes like, it tastes better than attention.  But you have to get there.”

“It’s about being alive and feisty and not sitting down and shutting up, even though people would like you to.”

“Change the voices in your head.  Make them like you instead.”

“I will never be a stupid girl and neither should you.  Today, charting your own course isn’t just more necessary than ever before; it’s also much easier and much more fun.  A good education is one of the greatest gifts you could ever give yourself.”

“It takes a lot of people years to turn a negative into a positive.  It takes me, like, an album.”

“I don’t want to live in fear.  I don’t want to stop fighting.  I don’t want to retreat to a silent corner.”

“I decided at 15 that I didn’t want to be one of those artists that gets up and sings love songs they don’t mean.  I decided that I was going to be me to the fullest extent, that my songs were going to reflect relationships I’ve had, things I’ve been through, and even the stuff I’m embarrassed about.”

“For the first few years we paid all the bills first and divided what was left as salary.  Sometimes that was $50 a week.”

“My definition of stupid is wasting your opportunity to be yourself because I think everybody has a uniqueness and everybody’s good at something.”

“If I wasted my time trying to be like everybody else when I was 10 and 11, I wouldn’t be me today.  So if you are gonna be the future rockstars, the future somebody, whatever you wanna be, then you’re wasting your time trying to be somebody else, because you’ll never get to you.”

“True beauty is knowing who you are and what you want and never apologizing for it.”

“I wish that girls embraced their power and their worth and their value in their youth, and not sell it or barter it for anything and have to buy it back later in life.  I wish for my daughter to grow up in a world where wonderful publications celebrate them for their originality, their individuality, their willingness to be true to themselves, and the courage to be scary and emotional to get sh*t done.  I wish for women to stop apologizing for those very things that make us women.”

“For so long, I was searching for something to be proud of.  But at a certain point, I realized, ‘Wait, I’m doing what I want to be doing.  I’m not wanting to do it; I’m doing it.’  And that’s awesome.”

“It’s very easy for me to tap into ‘go f*ck yourself.’  Maybe that’s the only way I feel powerful.  I’m in the best place I’ve ever been in my life, and I’d say it’s 80% happiness and 20% sheer confusion and fear that I’ll f*ck it up somehow.  I’m consumed by my emotions.”

“I don’t try to be candy coated.  I don’t try to walk on eggshells.  I am what I am.  Love me or hate me.”

“My dad raised me with some good advice: ‘Always tell the truth.  Always shoot from the hip.  You might not have many friends, but you’ll never have enemies, because people will always know where you’re coming from.'”

“I’m never the kind of person who’s sitting at home reading the charts and basing how I feel about myself or even my career on stats.  I’ve always based it on, ‘Am I doing the best that I can do?'”

“I sing my life.  It’s like I’m having group therapy 350 days a year, and the people who come to the show get that, and they’re there for that – whether it’s to be lifted up, or to be lifted out, or just entertained or inspired, or to feel not so alone.”

“I can turn heartbreak into songs that help other people.”

“I like feeling strong.  It keeps my mental floor higher.”

“I know my strong points: I work hard, I have talent, I’m funny, and I’m a good person.”

“I see my six year old and I’m like, ‘I just want to give you the sh*t that I already know.’  But you can’t borrow somebody else’s knowledge, you have to buy your own.  I know that too.  It sucks when you’re a mom.  I don’t want my kids to buy their own knowledge, I just want them to swallow mine.”

“Hanging upside down and being physical makes me feel beautiful.  Feeling beautiful to me is when I feel good in my leather pants and my husband grabs my ass.  Or when I’m sitting on a mat and my daughter runs to me with complete joy.  Beautiful has never been my goal.  Joy is my goal – to feel healthy and strong and powerful and useful and engaged and intelligent and in love.  It’s about joy.  And there’s such joy now.”

“The willow is my favorite tree.  I grew up near one.  It’s the most flexible tree in nature and nothing can break it – no wind, no elements, it can bend and withstand anything.”

“Pink is what I do.  Alecia is who I am.  The world has taken Pink and turned it into this thing, a brand, a snarl.”

“I will have blue highlights, I will have f*ck-me heels, a really nice glass of wine that I made in my hand, and I will tell anyone that will listen… how a smartass from Doylestown, PA is gonna be a star and then Billboard f*cking magazine made me their Woman of the Year.”

“Pretty, pretty please, don’t you ever ever feel like you’re less than, less than perfect.”

“Gotta get up and try.”
