Do the thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. This is your moment. Own it.
What kind of woman do I want to be? One who willingly gives and receives love. One who is compassionate. Understanding. Positive. Forgiving. A woman who makes responsible choices. I want to live with a heart open to life.
When in doubt, be bold!
The future is full of possibility, whether you make one tiny change – or a whole invigorating, thrilling, inspiring bunch of them.
Whatever your dreams, ideas or rejects, we plant a seed, nurture it – and then reap the fruits of our labors.
I feel I have made a living being myself. I’ve made a career out of my own authenticity. I don’t have one face I present to the white world or to the black world. I talk to my dogs the same way I’m speaking right now.
[on performing in ‘Lee Daniel’s The Butler’] I’m a historian of my own history – of African American history. I believe that when you know who you are you have the ability to move forward, not only with your own strength but with the strength of your entire ancestry. I am the daughter of a maid, and my grandmother was a maid, and her mother was a maid, and her mother was a slave. I feel validated by the war that the butler and his entire generation fought in their own way. And the fact that there’s another generation of freedom writers and freedom fighters, because of evolution and growth and change, decided they weren’t going to do that anymore. Both wars were necessary for their time.
[on Shondra Rhimes] Shondra is a storyteller for our times. Courageous in her approach to the work, she’s never played by other people’s rules. She creates an assemblage of worldly foibles and aspirations. She understands that every dream is valuable and every identity deserves inspection through the looking-glass of television. She knows the power of reflection and wields that power with grace and generosity.

On strategy: Doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment.
On personal power: I have a lot of things to prove to myself. One is that I can live my life fearlessly.
Part of her 2009 commencement speech at Duke: Of all the wonderful things that have happened including getting a doctorate, an honorary doctorate from Duke, what really makes me feel successful is being able to use my life in service to someone else. And I will have to say, it is a wonderful thing to have a beautiful home or homes, a wonderful thing to have a beautiful home which just escaped the fire in Santa Barbara. And it is really fantastic to have your own jet and anybody who says it isn’t is lying to you. The jet thing is really good. But you haven’t completed the circle of success unless you can help somebody else move forward.
Just want to say how deeply saddened I am, we all are, by the sudden passing of actress Natasha Richardson yesterday. Our thoughts and prayers are with her husband Liam Neeson, their two sons, the rest of their family and friends. Yet another reminder of how fleeting life can be and how precious. We need to value every moment (On Natasha Richardson’s tragic death).
My philosophy is that doing your best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment.
Some women have a weakness for shoes… I can go barefoot if necessary. I have a weakness for books.
The expectation of my life was that I might be able to work for some good white folks. Now I got some good white folks working for me.
What matters is how you feel inside, because feeling beautiful on the inside is key to looking good.quoted in Woman’s World 9-20-05
