In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. In a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.
The greatest education is watching the masters at work.
I`m just like everyone. I cut and I bleed. And I embarass easily.
I am bewildered at the length to which people will go portray me so negatively.

The Bee Gees who are brilliant, I just love great music.

I trusted Martin Bashir to come into my life and that of my family because I wanted the truth to be told. Martin Bashir persuaded me to trust him that his would be an honest and fair portrayal of my life and told me that he was the man that turned Diana`s life around. I am surprised that a professional journalist would compromise his integrity by deceiving me in this way. Today I feel more betrayed than perhaps ever before; that someone, who had got to know my children, my staff and me, whom I let into my heart and told the truth, could then sacrifice the trust I placed in him and produce this terrible and unfair programme. Everyone who knows me will know the truth which is that my children come first in my life and that I would never harm any child. I also want to thank my fans around the world for the overwhelming number of messages of support that I have received, particularly from Great Britain, where people have e-mailed me and said how appalled they were by the Bashir film. Their love and support has touched me greatly.
I was a veteran, before I was a teenager.
The meaning of life is contained in every single expression of life. It is present in the infinity of forms and phenomena that exist in all of creation.
People think they know me, but they don`t. Not really. Actually, I am one of the loneliest people on this earth. I cry sometimes, because it hurts. It does. To be honest, I guess you could say that it hurts to be me.
Marlon Brando has been pushing. He`s a wonderful man. He`s a god. He wants a lot of money. He wants to get things done right now. - On a video about acting which he was planning to make with Brando in 2001
Because I wanted to have a place that I could create everything that I that I never had as a child. So, you see rides. You see animals. There`s a movie theater.
You know, let`s put it this way, if all the people in Hollywood who have had plastic surgery, if they went on vacation, there wouldn`t be a person left in town.
I have spent my entire life helping millions of children across the world. I would never harm a child. It is unfortunate that some individuals have seen fit to come forward and make a complaint that is completely false. Years ago, I settled with certain individuals because I was concerned about my family and the media scrutiny that would have ensued if I fought the matter in court. These people wanted to exploit my concern for children by threatening to destroy what I believe in and what I do. I have been a vulnerable target for those who want money.
There were times when I had great times with my brothers, pillow fights and things, but I was, used to always cry from loneliness.
I`m never pleased with anything, I`m a perfectionist, it`s part of who I am.

I love my children. I was holding my son tight. Why would I throw a baby off the balcony? That`s the dumbest, stupidest story I ever heard.
Yes, and I had pimples so badly it used to make me so shy. I used not to look at myself. I`d hide my face in the dark, I wouldn`t want to look in the mirror and my father teased me and I just hated it and I cried everyday.
When I see children, I see the face of God. That`s why I love them so much. That`s what I see.
Well Brooke, I`ve always liked her, and when I was little I used to stay with Diana Ross, me and my brothers stayed with her for years and I never said, but I always had a crush on her.
But I will never stop helping and loving people the way Jesus said to.
Elizabeth Taylor is a warm cuddly blanket that I love to snuggle up to and cover myself with. I can confide in her and trust her. She`s Mother Teresa, Princess Diana, the Queen of England, and Wendy.
I will say again that I have never, and would never, harm a child. It sickens me that people have written untrue things about me.
People write negatives things, cause they feel that`s what sells. Good news to them, doesn`t sell.
I`m a visionary and a creative person. God blessed me with certain talents. I hate to use an analogy, but Walt Disney was creative but not good with business. His brother Roy handled the books. He loved creating family-oriented entertainment and so do I. I feel that was a gift and I have that gift also. I`m very honored to have been chosen.
Because parents have power over children. They feel they have to do what their parents say. But the love of money is the root of all evil. And this is a sweet child. And to see him turn like this, this isn`t him. This is not him.
Everything that I love is behind those gates. We have elephants, and giraffes, and crocodiles, and every kind of tigers and lions. And - and we have bus loads of kids, who don`t get to see those things. They come up sick children, and enjoy it.
The greatest education in the world is watching the masters at work.

Elizabeth Taylor is gorgeous, beautiful, and she still is today, I`m crazy about her.
Me and Janet really are two different people.
I love my family very much. I wish I could see them a little more often than I do. But we understand because we`re a show business family and we all work.
I`ve helped many, many, many children, thousands of children, cancer kids, leukemia kids.
I`ll always be Peter Pan in my heart.
Before I would hurt a child, I would slit my wrists.
I don`t like pop music.
Everyone who knows me will know the truth, which is that my children come first in my life and that I would never harm any child.
I have a skin disorder that destroys the pigmentation of my skin, it`s something that I cannot help, OK?
I think that it`s demeaning and disrespectful but I also want to make it clear it`s not just about me but a pattern of disrespect that he has shown to our community. He needs to stop it and he needs to stop it now." - On Eminem`s video for "Just Lose It
It`s a complete lie, why do people buy these papers? It`s not the truth I`m here to say. You know, don`t judge a person, do not pass judgement, unless you have talked to them one on one. I don`t care what the story is, do not judge them because it is a lie.
