Alanis Morissette Quotes

I try to keep a low profile in general. Not with my art, but just as a person.
I did commit to myself that I would not jump back into being the workaholic that I can be before I gave myself an honest opportunity to create the marriage of my dreams and to create the beginning of the family of my dreams, and that took a hot second.
It's a joke to think that anyone is one thing. We're all such complex creatures. But if I'm going to be a poster child for anything, anger's a gorgeous emotion. It gets a bad rap, but it can make great changes happen.

There's such a continuity between everything that I don't really care what form it shows up in.
I believe in God, only I spell it Nature.
A positive attitude is not going to save you. What it's going to do is, everyday, between now and the day you die, whether that's a short time from now or a long time from now, that every day, you're going to actually live.
All successful people men and women are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose.
Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.
Your secret labour is always your open flavour.
I was an OK boxer, I wasn't great, I was OK, but I loved the discipline of getting together every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, usually Saturday afternoons too, with a whole bunch of mates and training, very, very hard for about two-and-half hours.
For sure, the 'Obamania' that's fast taking hold reflects an incredible thirst for change in global politics and, dare I say, a wave of optimism that things can be different.
Politics is not the art of the possible. It consists in choosing between the disastrous and the unpalatable.
A man existence is punishment enough, he can feel lonely, sad and mad sometimes but what makes one a real man is what he stands to be now for the future.
Great hopes make great men.
