Top 10 most inspiring quotes by Julie Andrews
- I think birth and motherhood are not things that you’re trained to do. You might have a good example in your own mum, but nobody teaches you how to be a really great mum.
- I’m the lucky one who got asked to do ‘The Sound of Music’ and all the other lovely things that I did.
- I had toured around England endlessly throughout my teens, but when I came to the U.S. to perform on Broadway, that was a huge step.
- There’s nothing like the joy of the arts, and promoting the arts early in children is going to give them such a start in life in a way.
- I love my garden. I love my privacy. I’m very fierce about it. I try not to let too many people into my home. That’s my private place.
- I come from a long line of below-stairs maids and gardeners. Good ol’ peasant stock. My mother and her sister made a quantum leap out of that life. Then I made another quantum leap.
- Actually, I had a lot of good people with me – my mother’s sister did a lot of taking care of me, and I suppose I got more attention than my stepbrothers because at least I got to travel with my parents.
- I didn’t know other children from divorced families, and I was a bit of a lost soul for a while. Then suddenly, I was performing. And it gave me an identity.
- My mother was terribly important to me, and I know how much I yearned for her in my youth, but I don’t think I truly trusted her.
- In my early years, I was much too ignorant and didn’t realize how desperately important it all is, how really important the lyrics are. And for me as a singer, I am a lady who takes the lyrics first.
