Céline Dion's quotes

  • I guess it all depends on your nature. Some people can't stand being alone. I love solitude and silence. But when I come out of it, I'm a regular talking machine. It's all or nothing for me.
  • For me, singing was real life, not two plus two equals four.
  • I'll be a Quebecker-Canadian. I'm from Quebec and every time I go to a country I say that. It's my roots, my origins and it's the most important thing to me.
  • There's one way to do showbiz, if you want to do it perfectly, you have to be disciplined and you have to be ready to work really hard.
  • I'm not trying to be a nice girl, but it's me. I'm not afraid to be nice.
  • [People magazine, 1994] I don't regret having lost my adolescence. I had one dream: I wanted to be a singer.
  • [People magazine, 12/3/07, on her son seeing her Las Vegas show for the first time] He's the only guy who intimidates me.
  • [People magazine, 12/3/07] My life is to be a mom. It is what I enjoy the most. It is my most amazing reward. I will take a chance with my music. I don't take risks with my family.
  • [People magazine, 12/3/07] I feel like I'm at the bottom of the ladder, finally. I started at the top. I came down. Maturity is being grounded. When you feel grounded, you feel strong. I know what I want.
  • [People magazine, 12/3/07] I love performing, but I never really liked show business. My success is my family. I want to be more successful as a mother.
  • I only record songs that touch me in some way, ones that I can relate to.
  • I've always been an 'open book' when it comes to my fans. They are so loyal to me and give me such great support that I feel I want to share as much of my life with them as I can. They are part of this journey - a big part!
  • I don't drink. I don't smoke. I shop.
