Brooke Shields Quotes:

“Don’t waste a minute not being happy. If one window closes, run to the next window- or break down a door.”

“My father’s death, my move, and my frightening and difficult delivery created a tremendous amount of stress, pain, and sadness for me. I was practically devastated beyond recovery.”

“Someone said adversity builds character, but someone else said adversity reveals character. I’m pleasantly surprised with my resilience. I persevere, and not just blindly. I take the best, get rid of the rest, and move on, realizing that you can make a choice to take the good.”

“The thing I’m the most proud of in my personal life is that my daughter actually thinks that I’m fabulous.”

“I have a group of friends in my life, and we all give each other something different. I’ve known my two closest friends for many years. One is a friend from high school, and the other I met right after college. My deep, deep friends remind me every day of the good parts of my personality.”
