Sharon Osbourne quotes: the TV personality’s trendiest tidbits.

“If you say you’re going to do something, do it.”

“It just takes time. You just can’t have a dream. You have to know so many things about the industry. You have to know all sorts of different aspects of the business.”

“You do have to understand the audience that you’re selling to: how they live, how they find out about you. You’ve got to understand a lot of different aspects.”

“That’s what’s so exciting about the industry. There’s always change; nothing stays the same. Nothing.”

“When you get pushed down, you pick yourself up and move on.”

“Your gut is always right.”

“Just be who you are.”

“Keep a strong, positive state of mind.”

“I got f*cking loud because I needed to be heard. I spent my life kicking down doors to become one of rock music’s most powerful figureheads. My success has always been about survival. I was lucky enough to be born into the industry through my father.”

“You had to know what you were doing. You had to be on top of your game because they wanted you to fail, but I wouldn’t go away. I wouldn’t fail and I wouldn’t take no for an answer.”

“I didn’t mind getting into fights with people. I never went out to hurt anyone and I kept my head down and did my own thing, but it was always, ‘Don’t f*ck with me. Don’t. Because I don’t f*ck with you, but if you do f*ck with me, then I’m gonna f*cking kill ya.’ I’d embarrass the f*ck out of you and that’s what I used to do.”

“I love ‘f*ck.’ I know that’s not the most original, but I just adore it. I could say it all day. You can use it in so many different ways. An adverb. It can go anywhere in a sentence. As language goes, it’s so malleable. I think people are just accustomed to hearing it in the wrong context. They think of it as a hostile word. But you know what it is for me? It’s an expression. I use it to express an emotion, and it’s not always a negative emotion. In fact, most of the time when I say f*ck, I’m not trying to be offensive at all.”

“I have to make a concerted effort to not say the words I’m constantly thinking. But at the same time, I like to be spontaneous. I don’t want to plan in advance what I’m going to say. So it’s a constant battle between my natural instincts to say the first thing that pops into my head and being well aware that I have to keep it clean for the audience.”

“The financing of swearing takes all the fun out of it. I say if you’re going to do it, just do it. Really relish the moment. If I was going to swear on live TV, and I knew it was a situation where I’d be in jeopardy of paying a huge fine, I’d take my time with it. I wouldn’t just throw it away.”

“Talent is a gift from God. That is something that you are born with. To be able to be born with singing talent is just a gift. You can learn how to sing better, but you cannot learn to sing with certain quality. It is just something you are born with.”

“Seems like I’m in a dream.”

“I don’t view myself as a sex symbol. I think beautiful people come from within and that’s how I look at it.”

“We are a very colorful family. Everybody knows our mistakes. But I think that people can relate to all of our mistakes and all our good and bad points. I thought America needed to see what a normal family was really like.”

“We love each other more than anything. We all make mistakes and we all know that. I mean, I am the queen of making mistakes. We may be dysfunctional, we may be different, but what we have—which, sadly, most people don’t—is true love.”

“Everybody has good times and bad times and what we are as a family no one and nothing can ever tear us apart because what we have is love and we will stand by each other till the day we die.”

“People look at me like, ‘Oh, she’s so strong. She’s such a loudmouth, she’s this, she’s that.’ But that’s just one side of me. When you’re the matriarch of a family and run a business and work at your own career, things just pile up. We have the same problems as everyone else. However bad the situation is at the time, however dark your life might be, things change, situations change. You just have to get that moment of clarity.”

“I’ve got so much wisdom and have lived through so much life that I feel more powerful than I ever have.”

“Cancer hasn’t changed my perspective on my career and  life in general. Career-wise, it made me realize I could do things I thought I couldn’t do. And if I failed, it really wasn’t that important because my career is not of great importance. It’s a gift, not a priority in my life.”

“You think nothing will ever happen to you. You’re invincible. Then after you get over the shock and panic, you realize how lucky you are to be alive.”

“Listen to your body. When you’re in your 20s and 30s, you think you know everything, and it’s not until you get older that you realize you didn’t know anything. Women are so busy with work and families, and we don’t always make our own health a priority.”

“It’s taken me 60 years to realize that it’s not about dieting but rather changing your lifestyle and making healthier choices.”

“My future plans are to carry on, live my life to the fullest and to continue appreciating what I have.”

“I’m at the age where I don’t have to kiss arse or play nice! At my age, I feel I’ve earned the right to express my point of view. I’ve had an unusual life, and I’ve learned from my experiences, and I’m comfortable saying what’s on my mind.”

“When somebody comes who hasn’t worked and wants to take what is yours, it pisses me off big time.”

“Everything we got we worked our asses off for.”

“I’m one of the richest women in entertainment. How long will I continue to work? For me, it’s not about the money anymore. It’s about, ‘What am I going to do? Make hairdressing appointments, and have massages all day?’ This is what I do. My husband (Ozzy) doesn’t want to go away, and buy a place in Palm Springs and say, ‘See ya. I’m going to play golf.’ No way.”

“I never think about the future. I live in today. I live today. That’s the way that I have always done it. I just live every day. I never think that I am going to save this for the future. That I will do this or that when I get older. I do it now. That way, you know what? No regrets. And I have had a brilliant f*cking life. A brilliant life, and a brilliant family. I don’t want to go anywhere because I love my family. I can’t complain about a thing.”

“I have a million more things I’m going to do. And I’m not going anywhere.”
