“Whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it.  Because you’ll find that when you’re free… your true self comes out.”

“The older you get, the more you realize it’s not what happens, but how you deal with it.”

“Getting over a painful experience is much like crossing monkey bars.  You have to let go at some point in order to move forward.  Sometimes you have to let go to see if there was anything worth holding on to.”

“You don’t need strength to let go of something.  What you really need is understanding.  There are things that we never want to let go of, people we never want to leave behind.  But keep in mind that letting go isn’t the end of the world, it’s the beginning of a new life.”

“The real power behind whatever success I have now was something I found within myself – something that’s in all of us, I think – a little piece of God just waiting to be discovered.”

“I didn’t have anybody, really, no foundation in life, so I had to make my own way.  Always, from the start.  I had to go out in the world and become strong, to discover my mission in life.”

“I made a world for myself.  I searched for what I wanted, and when I found it, I patterned myself after another class.  When I went to school, I didn’t observe the unfortunate ones, I observed the fortunate ones, people with manners, educated people.  So I never became what I was.”

“So when it came to role models, I looked at Presidents’ wives.  Of course, you’re talking about a farm girl who stood in the fields, dreaming, years ago, wishing she was that kind of person.  But if I had been that kind of person, do you think I could sing with the emotions I do?  You sing with those emotions because you’ve had pain in your heart.”

“I’m self-made.  I always wanted to make myself a better person, because I was not educated.  But that was my dream – to have class.”

“My greatest beauty secret is being happy with myself.  It’s a mistake to think you are what you put on yourself.  I believe that a lot of how you look is to do with how you feel about yourself and your life.  Happiness is the greatest beauty secret.”

“I think health has a lot to do with happiness.  When you’re healthy, you think more clearly, and you can work on yourself.  But it’s not about extremes.  I eat everything I ever wanted to eat, just not too often.”

“As I grew up, I learned what worked for me.  That’s where the short dresses came from.  And you can’t dance in a long dress.”

“I need that on stage.  I need a burst of life.  That’s entertainment for me.”

“My legacy is that I stayed on course… from the beginning to the end, because I believed in something inside of me.”

“I want to tell people how to live spiritually.  After you’ve bought all your houses and your clothes, you want something bigger.”

“Retirement could be tough for the self-admitted workaholic, who received a lifetime achievement award at the British Black Music Awards last year for her 40-year music career.  I never drink, and I have never done drugs.  All I have ever done is work, work, work my entire life.”

“Age is no issue to me.  I think 50 is the new 30 and 70 is the new 50.  There are no rules that say you have to dress a certain way or be a certain way.”

“I will never give in to old age until I become old.  And I’m not old yet!”

“I don’t limit myself.  I feel good, and I’m happy.  My home is great, and I’m doing as much as I can for my family.  My wish is to give the kind of truth to people that will help them change their minds.  When that happens, I’ll be the best that I can be.”

“It’s that happiness that people talk about, when you wish for nothing, when you can finally take a deep breath and say, ‘Everything is good.’  It’s a wonderful place to be.”

“I’m pleased with my life, with the journey.”
