Best Angelina Jolie Quotations to Help Build Your Self-Confidence

Updated on March 28, 2017
  • It’s hard to be clear about who you are when you are carrying around a bunch of baggage from the past. I have learned to let go and move more quickly into the next place. It is a survival thing. I just move forward.
  • My vice is that I do not know how to do nothing. I always feel like there is something I should be doing. That is not good all the time.
  • I think you learn not to give in to darker emotions which can put you in a terrible state of mind if you let those feelings overwhelm you. We are always a prisoner of our emotions to varying degrees, and I have learned from experience that you can take charge of your darkest feelings and not let them destroy you.
  • I have not been alone for so long! You know, I have met the right person. I do not like being without him and I do not love being alone like I used to.
  • To be a service to others creates a happier life.
  • If you become aware of your public self, you are in danger of becoming a very artificial person, because you will always want to satisfy that public.
  • We have a choice about how we take what happens to us in our life and whether or not we allow it to turn us.

  • If I make a fool of myself, who cares? I am not frightened by anyone’s perception of me.
  • I do not know if I am a perfectionist as much as I am really hard on myself. I can accomplish many things and feel like I have accomplished nothing.
  • Make bold choices and make mistakes. It is all those things that add up to the person you become.
  • You have to be a team. I was not a team with either of my husbands. We were individual strong people, which is so important. But that extra thing, I think, that really holds a marriage and family together is finding the person that is got your back and you have got theirs. Whether you are going to raise a strong family or you are going to try to change the world together, whatever it is, you are supporting each-other.
  • I have always been ridiculously fearless. I feel alive when I am afraid. And you know what? The worst thing that happens is I die. At least I lived.
  • You kind of accept that certain things feel like a fairytale and you just do not look for them.
  • People think you are dangerous when you are chaotic. I feel dangerous now that I am focused.
  • Get outside yourself. Get outside your environment. Do something for other people.
  • Life comes with many challenges. The ones that should not scare us are the ones we can take on and take control of.

  • I do not have time and energy to pretend and I do not want to live that way.
  • I am a pussycat really, but I can kick ass if I have to.
  • I think you have to get past any kind of smallness that somebody did, or something you expect from them, or some angry stupid words. – That if that person can admit what motivated those stupid words, then you can move on.
  • When I was growing up I wanted to adopt, because I was aware there were kids that did not have parents. It is not a humanitarian thing, because I do not see it as a sacrifice. it is a gift. We are all lucky to have each-other.
  • I am capable of being stronger and darker and fiercer than anybody’s ever written, but in the way they are talking about, it is in a showy silly way. The stories tend to come out with a certain shock value, rather than an explanation that might be helpful to a 13 year old.
  • I get angry at all sorts of things, I just do not give up on them.
  • Maybe somebody meets you and thinks you are the sweetest thing in the world and he loves you. And you think “Well, if they really knew me, if they knew all of me, I do not think I am half as decent a human being, or as worthy of love as they think I am.” And it is easier maybe, to be alone, to be ugly, and dark and dirty and bad, because to hope and to try to see yourself, is really hard.

  • Often people make the mistake of thinking that just because there is a camera or microphone in your face you have to speak.
  • If you do not get out of the box you have raised in, you will not understand how much bigger the world really is.
  • I do not suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.
  • I do not have a lot of friends. I have been alone a lot. I think when you are alone, when you go some place and you are by yourself, you end up meeting new people and you develop. I think people who travel in a pack do not often end up meeting new people.
  • You need to challenge life and feel it in different ways.
  • The only fear that I ever have is that I did not do enough with what I could with my life.
  • I am so much stronger. I am not hard on myself anymore. I simply do not ask much of anybody, but just to be who they are.
  • I had a lot of sadness and distrust. I came very close to the end of my life a few times. I think all of the self-destruction comes from wanting to disappear because I did not know where to put myself.
  • People tend to sum up times in your life and simplify.

  • The idea behind “Wanted” is not that she’s a badass assassin that just likes to kill people. It is that, if you ran into Hitler before he did everything, and you knew, should you shoot him? And I would.
  • I always wanted a great love affair. Something that feels big and full, really honest and enough. No moment should feel slight, false, or a little off. For me, it had to be everything.
  • There is something about death that is comforting. The thought that you could die tomorrow frees you to appreciate your life now.
  • Regrets make you pause in your life.
  • Save one-third, life on one-third, give away one-third.
  • I like someone who is a little crazy but coming from a good place. I think scars are sexy because it means you made a mistake that led to a mess.
  • I am many things. We have all been judged on the surface and there are many more sides to us. It doesn’t get to me.
  • You want to meet other people that challenge you with ideas or with power or with passion. I wanted to live very fully. I wanted to live many lives and explore many things.
  • There is certainly a side of me that is not completely sane.
  • Anything that feels good could not possibly be bad.
  • Indulging in life. It is an absolutely necessary thing to do, according to what Jolie was heard to be saying during an interview.
