Marie Forleo
That is why success and fruitfulness depend as much upon focusing on the “who” you are as much as the “what” of the work you do. Invest in your character, and it will give you the returns that you are looking for by only investing in the work itself. You can’t do the latter without the former.

It’s really cool going into a casting room and having them know who you are and the work that you’ve done.
Atticus Shaffer
For a selfie, it’s not about the pose, it’s about you. There’s a reason why you look great in the picture or you look great in real life, because someone has caught the essence of who you are, and a pose is not you.
Nigel Barker
If you are you, 24 hours a day, then you do not have to remember who you are supposed to be in different situations – something that I imagine could be troublesome.
Bill Dixon
You can’t be hesitant about who you are.
Viola Davis
My teaching influences who you are and who you become, I said, because insofar as I persuade you to change what you know, I can’t help but persuade you to change who you are. A vast portion of who you are just is a matter of what you know.
Marshall Gregory
Letting your freak flag fly is something, no matter who you are, that takes great bravery, straight up.
Sarah Silverman

Maggie Grace
Be fun! I don’t like homes or rooms that don’t have a sense of humor or have some sense of whimsy or a personality. Your home should reflect who you are, and what you love. I would never have something in my home because it’s the thing to have. I have to love it and it needs some connection to me.
Bryan Batt
For all the people who have infected me with amor deliria nervosa in the past – you know who you are. For the people who will infect me in the future – I can’t wait to see who you’ll be. And in both cases: Thank you.
Lauren Oliver
We can’t, and we should not, compare sufferings. We come together as a family of God, hand in hand. And then together coming and standing upon the promises of God, knowing that no matter who you are, no matter what you’re going through, that God knows it, He is with you, He is going to pull you through.
Nick Vujicic
Yoga ia a way of moving into stillness in order to experience the truth of who you are.
Erich Schiffmann
I have enough of life in me to make somebody jealous enough to want to knock me down. I have so much courage in me that I have the effrontery, the incredible gall to stand up. That’s it. That’s how you get to know who you are.
Maya Angelou
Feelings or emotions are the universal language and are to be honored. They are the authentic expression of who you are at your deepest place.
Judith Wright
Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.

This whole celebrity-fame thing is interesting. I’m the same person I always was. The only difference between being famous and not being famous is that people know who you are.
Oprah Winfrey
Money lets you enjoy the finer things of life, but it doesn’t change who you are. It magnifies and brings into fruition the things that you want to hide most. It is a mask for insecurities as well.
Farrah Gray
Like I said, when you have to play against a great player every night, that defines who you are if you can compete on that same level night in and night out.
Dominique Wilkins
Stop being who you were and become who you are.
Paulo Coelho
Always stay true to who you are.
Willow Shields
If you have a big splash of ecstasy in your life every day you are going to teach students something finer than “buy low/sell high”. Maybe you’ll teach them, not by what you say but by who you are, to live their lives as a standing affront to the ravaging mercantile mentality.
Mary Rose O’Reilley
No original thought still exists. People are original, each one of them. The same ideas that others had before you are waiting for you to bring them back to life in a new way. The part of who you are that is left behind within these old ideas is what makes them original all over again.
Ashly Lorenzana
You don’t have to be a certain thing to be cool. If you’re white, you don’t have to act black or whatever. Just be you and know who you are.

Sally Ride

Ralph Smart
I dont ever want to part with any of my shoes. They all have a special place in my heart because they say something about who you are today.

Sheldon B. Kopp
Be who you are and I’ll be who I am. I refuse to take sides, because everybody has their story.

Paul Merton
I’m crazy. I know I’m crazy ’cause Desmond Tutu told me, and he’s very clever. He said, ‘You must free yourself, be more of who you are. Be more crazy.’ And I’m going to.
Craig Ferguson

John Jakes
You’ve got to be really dialed into exactly who you are to the one hundredth power or you’re just everyone else.

Don DeLillo
Be okay with who you are. And that you can’t choose your parents or what life you were born into, but you can choose the kind of person you want to be.

Jennifer Crusie
Many things in your life matter, but only one thing matters absolutely.. It is finding the essence of who you are.

John Waters

Penelope Trunk
Who would you be but who you are?

You have to constantly recreate yourself in show business, which is a very fast thing, especially now with the tremendous speed of social media. There are so many personalities, so many different kinds of comedy that you can access, so it’s definitely important to stake your claim and say who you are.
Margaret Cho
I wasn’t always this confident. Growing up as the awkward gay kid in a small town in Pennsylvania, you’re constantly told, ‘Don’t be yourself, don’t be proud of who you are.
Carson Kressley
You cannot really be too concerned with what people think of you. You’re on your own adventure of growth and discovery. So it’s not always good to be who people think you are, especially if you subscribe to it as well … which is easily done, because then you don’t have to figure out who you are, you just ask somebody else.
Tom Waits
There are three kinds of friends in the world. An ordinary person sees only who you are; for that you don’t need a friend. Then there’s a friend who sees in you what you can be. And then there’s the real holy Friend, and the presence of this Friend you are already.
Shlomo Carlebach
When I’m working, it’s those actors (you know who you are) who sit around moaning that their trailer isn’t big enough, or how bad their facilities are. I can’t be doing with any of that, I just like to get on with it.
Anna Friel

Shonda Rhimes
There is God, and it doesn’t matter who you are or what you are doing, there is God in this world, and there’s a lot of love for everyone, and it doesn’t matter where you are from, the important thing for me when I read The Shack script – the thing that Jesus is, he is a friend.

Masaru Emoto
And I guess that in some way I’m falling for you because you are who you are. It’s easy to sleep with you because there’s no bullshit and you make me feel safe. But this all started because I gave in to a crazy impulse. It doesn’t happen very often, and I hadn’t planned it.
Steig Larsson
Pride in what and who you are is a strong foundation, but don’t be defined by your oppression; use your anger, don’t let it use you.

Rich dad said it this way, ‘Big people have big dreams and small people have small dreams. If you want to change who you are, begin by changing the size of your dreams.’

Naomie Harris
You gotta know who you are, I think, as a person, I’m a laidback guy. I’m very simple. It’s simplicity with me. Everything else, having the 10 cars or the 20 cars is ludicrous.
Darrelle Revis
Create a website that expresses something about who you are that won’t fit into the template available to you on a social networking site.

Joyce Cary
Leadership is much less about what you do, and much more about who you are.
Frances Hesselbein
Bottom line is, even if you see ’em coming, you’re not ready for the big moments. No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it does. So what are we, helpless? Puppets? No. The big moments are gonna come. You can’t help that. It’s what you do afterwards that counts. That’s when you find out who you are.

Willie Nelson
Football is what you do, but it’s not who you are. It’s a big part of who you are. Part of who you are is you’re a football player. It’s your profession. It’s a game you love to play. It’s a game I love to play.
Andrew Luck
Everybody, doesn’t matter who you are, escapes time. And for me, nothing is stranger than the thought that kids are just kids. Nobody is just anything. Whether you are eight or eighty, you’ve got your own unique take on how weird this world is.
Peter Orner
If you’re going to be a man that reads the papers and takes everything as gospel truth, that’s a sign of who you are, that isn’t a sign of the reality.

Felicity Jones
It is exhausting to be seventeen and not know who you are.
John Irving

Meryl Streep
The bottom line is that you have to choose who you are going to commit to– that’s the foundation of true love, not the lack of other options

Daniel Suarez

Nicki Minaj
A certain construct of emotions that really define who you are and who you will become and I feel very much that my childhood is very alive inside of me, very close to me, very much part of me. And it’s a sometimes painful, sometimes joyous inexhaustible resource for poetry.
Edward Hirsch
The purpose of all relationships is to create a sacred context
within which you can express the fullness of who you are.
And who you are is an experience you have before
you enter relationship, not because you did.

Courage is freedom, and freedom is joy. Be fully who you are, letting the world get used to you – it will! Find a loving community of friends who support your ever-flowering growth, which is a lifetime proposition.
Doris “Granny D” Haddock

Criss Jami
No matter who you are or what you intend to do, you should not exceed the boundaries of the rule of law.
Li Keqiang
Don’t ever sell yourself short. Stand tall. Never be ashamed of who you are. You are beautiful, you are loved. You are needed. You are worth it. Promise me you won’t forget that. Promise me you won’t let your scars define who you are. Let your trials shape you. Let your victories humble you.
Jennifer Nettles
If bad luck knows who you are, become someone else.
Jandy Nelson
You have to be who you truly are, and love who you are, to be beautiful.
In my experience, take the Holy Spirit out of the equation of your life and it spells boring. Add it into the equation of your life and you never know where you are going to go, what you are going to do, or who you are going to meet.
Mark Batterson
Your imperfections make you beautiful, they make you who you are.
Demi Lovato
Pretty isn’t beauty. Pretty is how you look; Beauty is who you are. Pretty is in the face and body; Beauty is in the heart, mind and soul. Pretty fades; Beauty grows.

His fingers trail down my neck and over my shoulder, and he says, “But you will do it. It doesn’t matter if you believe you can or not. You will, because that’s who you are.
Veronica Roth
It is nasty. You can think that you know someone in this business and you really don’t. You can be stabbed in the back very easily. You can be praised very easily. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you do.
Daisy Fuentes
What you are doesn’t matter. Because what you are isn’t going to change who you are.
C.C. Hunter
You rarely have time for everything you want in this life, so you need to make choices. And hopefully your choices can come from a deep sense of who you are.

Joy Behar
I love going into the centre of London because people don’t give a monkey’s about you or who you are. You can be in a restaurant and no one notices you or if they do they won’t show it.
Teddy Sheringham
If you show me who you are being influenced by I will show you what you are becoming.
Craig Groeschel
I think my biggest learning experience is that it’s okay to be who you are – you don’t have to exactly fit the mold of what people think a certain kind of career is. I think that discovery – of really knowing who I am and being okay with that and loving myself – was amazing.
Dree Hemingway
Can you truly love anyone if you do not first love yourself? If you hate yourself, can you love anyone else? If you do not accept all of who you are, can you accept anyone else? Hard questions. It remains to be seen whether I get any answers, hard, or otherwise.

Anne Lamott
I think the best piece of advice that I would give is beauty is really just – I know it sounds cheesy – being true to who you are. Beauty is not something that is acquired necessarily through like makeup or clothing.
Amandla Stenberg
When brides ask me, “What’s the best advice you can give me on my wedding day?” I always have the same answer: “Be yourself.” Someone’s marrying you, they love you for who you are, and they don’t want you to be someone else.
Vera Wang
Sometimes you need to get away for a few weeks just to figure out who you are again.
Judd Apatow
Your understanding of another person is limited by what you think you already know. So when you just listen, the person you meet won’t match your preconception.

Nalini Singh
The choiceless truth of who you are is revealed to be permanently here permeating everything. Not a thing and not separate from anything.
Too easy to lose the way. Too hard to keep from unraveling when there’s nothing to remind you of who you are and where you should be. Another eternity passes in the flick of an eyelash.
Diana Rowland
It’s a crazy feeling when people know who you are and respect your game. It’s much appreciated.
Victor Cruz
Let go of who you think you’re supposed to be and embrace who you are.

All you need to do is know who you are.
Oprah Winfrey

No matter who you are, no matter what you do, you absolutely, positively do have the power to change.
Bill Phillips
You’d better have faith that everything happens for the best.

And that meant-to-be might be someone you don’t even know exists at this moment in time.
Suze Orman

Tariq Ramadan
Want to be happy? Don’t live competitively. Be content who you are. Live at peace with yourself and the losers below you.

Linda Howard
Who you are is a mystery no one can answer, not even you.
Jamaica Kincaid
Failure is an option. It’s what you do with the failure that makes you who you are. Our failures mold us. I have failed at several things in my life. What sets some of us apart, is that when we fail, we can’t sleep at night. It haunts us until we have our time at redemption.
David Goggins
I don’t think you learn as much about yourself when you are moving forwards as when you have fallen backwards. That’s when you really learn who you are. And reach for the things that have propelled you forward and made you a better person.

Kim Kardashian
You are who you are, and in the end, If you don’t believe it then no one will.
You need to be able to ride past the technology by understanding what it can do, who you are, and where you want to take it. You don’t want technology to lead you; you want to lead it, but it’s very hard to do that when you’re in the middle of it.

Joe Sacco
Know, first, who you are, and then adorn yourself accordingly.
Remember, happiness doesn’t depend upon who you are or what you have; it depends solely upon what you think. So start each day by thinking of all the things you have to be thankful for. Your future will depend very largely on the thoughts you think today. So think thoughts of hope and confidence and love and success.
Dale Carnegie
I don’t know who you are. I don’t know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don’t have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you.
Tom Glavine

David Crystal
Life is not about win-and-lose. Life is about being or not being, expressing or not expressing, who you are.

To know who you are without any delusions or sympathy is a moment of revelation that no one experiences unscathed.

George R. R. Martin
Self-programming, what you believe and affirm about yourself, is the basis of who you are.
Marshall Sylver
Changing someone’s life is not the best, is not wanting to change the other life. It is being who you are that changes another’s life. Do you understand?
Juliette Binoche
I myself am still learning how to be me and that’s OK. It can take a really long time to become the person you really want to be. Be who you are. It’s the greatest gift we can give to ourselves, our community and our world.
Maria Shriver
Forget who you are and what you think is there, and you’ll discover things that don’t exist to be known.
Lauren DeStefano

Justin Vernon
For honest insight into who you are, don’t ask yourself what your priorities are for next week. Ask what your priorities were last week.

Marilyn French
Being in business is not about making money. It is a way to become who you are.

Joel Osteen
Never deny passion, for that is to deny Who You Are, and Who You Truly Want To Be.
Neale Donald Walsch
I think the important thing being a wife of a president is to know who you are and find a cause that corresponds to you. The truth is, it’s hard to keep a job in that position. I kept playing music because no one could stop me from playing music at night.
Carla Bruni
Some mortals–like you–are already half in love with death. It is who you are, and I’ll not make it harder on you by telling you things you don’t need to know. Ask me again when you die. Then I’ll tell you everything, anything, nothing.
Melissa Marr
The biggest fashion mistake people make is they try to hang on to their youth. Embrace who you are now-your body, your lifestyle, your coloring.
Joseph Abboud
Any illness is a direct message to you that tells you how you have not been loving who you are, cherishing yourself in order to be who you are. This is the basis of all healing.

Don’t settle in the land of barely enough. That is where you are, it is not who you are. That’s your location, it’s not your identity. No matter what it looks like, have an abundant mentality.
Joel Osteen
Your diet has to be number one. If you don’t eat the right things, it doesn’t matter who you are. Sometimes those foods treat people differently.
Andre Reed
I think you have to know who you are. Get to know the monster that lives in your soul, dive deep into your soul and explore it.

Joseph McGinty Nichol
I don’t care who you are or what you have gone through – everyone has something they are fighting for.
Cara Castronuova

Zig Ziglar

Karen Finney
But you know who you are when you’re on your own out there in all that emptiness. There’s no past, no holding on to the scraps that are all you’ve got left. Everything is that minute, or maybe tomorrow, not yesterday.
Alexandra Ripley

Your real wealth can be measured not by what you have but by who you are.

Eckhart Tolle
Meditation is a way of moving into the unlimited dimension of who you are – it is the ultimate freedom.

James Ellroy
Be who you are. If you spend all of your time worrying about how people view you, you will not be either faithful to yourself or effective in what you’re trying to do.

David Carson
You’ll always love him” he said, as if he’d read her mind. “That doesn’t die just because he did, or because you now love me. Your love for him is part of who you are. It’s a beautiful part, Denise. Don’t be sad of it, and I will never be jealous of it”. Denise’s eyes overflowed again. Spade was right.
Jeaniene Frost

Albert Camus
Intelligent martial arts is not getting in battles and winning them. Intelligent martial arts is avoiding battles because battles use up energy, and you can get hurt no matter who you are.

Frederick Lenz
In the end you don’t so much find yourself as you find someone who knows who you are.
Robert Breault
I am now in a place where I have to be truer to myself first before anyone else. If you’re not real, how can you expect others to be real with you? The older you get; you aim to have an understanding of who you are as a person. But, I can honestly say, I am a better me than I’ve ever been in younger years.
Eric Benet
I didn’t get on TV until I was 30, which is really fortunate because you are who you are at that point.
Tina Fey
I cannot say this too strongly: Do not compare yourselves to others. Be true to who you are, and continue to learn with all your might.
Daisaku Ikeda
Our minds, bodies, feelings, relationships are all informed by our questions. What you ask is who you are. What you find depends on what you search for. And what shapes our lives are the questions we ask, refuse to ask, or never think of asking.
Sam Keen
Rise above the way society is going to see you and society is going to see you at the absolutely bottom of the totem pole because not only are you female, you are Black. Never believe it and never give into that, that that’s where you live or that’s who you are.

Stacy London

Amy Cuddy

H. W. L. Poonja
As a woman filmmaker it’s pretty important that you have some basis of confidence that you’re coming from, because, as I got closer to LA, there’s less and less women. There’s less and less mirrors for who you are.
Miranda July
You are who you are meant to be. Dance as if no one’s watching. Love as if it’s all you know. Dream as if you’ll live forever. Live as if you’ll die today.
James Dean
Existence of Isvara follows our conception of Isvara. Let us first know whose concept He is. The concept will be only according to the one who conceives. Find out who you are and the other
problem will solve itself.
Ramana Maharshi
It’s not really the love that I envy, it’s the trust. The feeling that no matter how bad you screw up, there is always someone who will accept you and love you for who you are; not because they have to, just because they can’t not love you.
Cassia Leo
I feel like I didn’t know who I was when I was 15. I don’t feel like you’re who you are for life, not even when you’re 20.
Sky Ferreira
Always, my mother said, “Be yourself.” That is sometimes the hardest thing to do. I try to always remember that and come back to that and have strength in who you are. There is only one you.

T. D. Jakes

Deepak Chopra
You’re who you are and if people don’t like who you are, all they’re going to get is who you are.
Avril Lavigne
What you go through is nothing compared to who you are.
Alan Cohen
If you’re not embodying and living in who you are, you’re going to have – it’s going to be like fragments. You’re going to have all these different aspects and sub-personalities that don’t get managed and handled. That don’t get managed and handled. And I think that’s probably a lot of the agony that comes in death.
Sometimes it’s what you don’t do that makes you who you are.
CM Punk
I genuinely believe that we will look back on today as a landmark for equality in Britain … No matter who you are and who you love, we are all equal. Marriage is about love and commitment, and it should no longer be denied to people just because they are gay.
Nick Clegg
You manifest based on who you are already – so you must own the identity of the dream in order to manifest it.
Joy Page
As a rapper, your verses are like a window in to who you are.
Andre Benjamin
Rumi says, ‘Meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in.’ With awareness, know which emotions are in the house, and why they’re there, and never forget who you are when the guests leave.

Maya Angelou
When the sweet ache of being alive, lodged between who you are and who you will be, is awakened, befriend this moment. It will guide you. Its sweetness is what holds you. Its ache is what moves you on.
Mark Nepo
That’s an interesting way to put it: an expectation of who you should be. More often than not, it’s described as an expectation of who you are.
Steve Carell
I think anybody who has had a long relationship and has had a really hard time letting go, wants to feel like it’s not all for naught, and it’s meaningful, because it makes you who you are.
