You are enough just as you are.

There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty.

What sets you apart can sometimes feel like a burden and it's not. And a lot of the time, it's what makes you great.

Your self-worth is determined by you. You don't have to depend on someone telling you who you are.

Be yourself, fill your life with good people, and don't get a big head. It can all be gone tomorrow.

You need to love yourself and be yourself one hundred percent before you can actually love someone else.

The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can't be any large-scale revolution until there's a personal revolution, on an individual level. It's got to happen inside first

Beauty is about being comfortable in your own skin. It's about knowing and accepting who you are.

To be natural is such a very difficult pose to keep up.

If you cannot be a poet, be the poem.

To be nobody but yourself in a world doing its best to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle any human can ever fight and never stop fighting.

Don't be into trends. Don't make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you express by the way you dress and the way to live.

The most important thing is to enjoy your life - to be happy - it's all that matters.

I am who I am, I am what I am, I do what I do and I ain't never gonna do it any different. I don't care who likes it and who don't.

If you're creating anything at all, it's really dangerous to care about what people think.

A girl should be two things: who and what she wants.

I feel that the simplicity of life is just being yourself.

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.

Only make decisions that support your self-image, self-esteem, and self-worth.

You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.

Just be yourself, there is no one better.

The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.

People may hate you for being different and not living by society's standards, but deep down, they wish they had the courage to do the same.

Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.

Be proud of who you are, and not ashamed of how someone else sees you.

I've never wanted to be in fashion. Because if you're in fashion, you're going to be out of fashion.

Fashion is about dressing according to what's fashionable. Style is more about being yourself.

The hardest challenge is to be yourself in a world where everyone is trying to make you be somebody else.

When you are content to be simply yourself and don't compare or compete, everybody will respect you.

To help yourself, you must be yourself. Be the best that you can be. When you make a mistake, learn from it, pick yourself up and move on.

You cannot change what you are, only what you do.

Do your own thing on your own terms and get what you came here for.

Whenever you feel like criticizing anyone, just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages that you've had.

Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are.

Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself.

I will not be another flower, picked for my beauty and left to die. I will be wild, difficult to find, and impossible to forget.

The things that make me different are the things that make me ME.

The more you try to crush your true nature, the more it will control you. Be what you are. No one who really loves you will stop.

Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.

Just because they disagree, doesn't mean you ain't right.

Fashion is what you adopt when you don't know who you are.

To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.

Where's your will to be weird?

Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.

Fashion you can buy, but style you possess. The key to style is learning who you are, which takes years. There's no how-to road map to style. It's about self-expression and, above all, attitude.

You are not stuck where you are unless you decide to be.

It is so beautiful to be loved as oneself. It is the sunrise in one's heart.

I'd rather regret the things I've done than regret the things I haven't done.

You have within you right now, everything you need to deal with whatever the world can throw at you.

We must be our own before we can be another's.

The more I like me, the less I want to pretend to be other people.

Style is a reflection of your attitude and your personality.

Our self-respect tracks our choices. Every time we act in harmony with our authentic self and our heart, we earn our respect. It is that simple. Every choice matters.

I've always loved butterflies because they remind us that it's never too late to transform ourselves.

Trust yourself. Think for yourself. Act for yourself. Speak for yourself. Be yourself. Imitation is suicide.

Being confident is the key to life. Don't be afraid to be you! I'm super different from a lot of kids my age with style and personality, and I'm OK with it. And if you are OK with it, everyone else will be, too. Just be yourself.

The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease forever to be able to do it.

You're always with yourself, so you might as well enjoy the company.

People can be more forgiving than you can imagine. But you have to forgive yourself. Let go of what's bitter and move on.

If you end up with a boring miserable life because you listened to your mom, your dad, your teacher, your priest, or some guy on television telling you how to do your shit, then you deserve it.

I am thankful for all of those who said NO to me. Its because of them I'm doing it myself.
