Famous quotes from Whitney Houston about things that made her happy, life and God.
About the way to stand when other people lie about you: “My mother taught me that when you stand in the truth and someone tells a lie about you, don’t fight it. ”
Whitney talks about the value life: “I can tell you that I am not self-destructive. I’m not a person who wants to die. I’m a person who has life, who wants to live. And I always have. And I wouldn’t mistake it for anything else other than that.”
Describing herself Houston once said: “I’m proud of being a mother, a wife, a daughter, and a sister, and a lover and a friend… We’re all God’s children.”
About her path: “I decided long ago never to walk in anyone’s shadow; if I fail, or if I succeed at least I did as I believe.”
Talking about her breakup with her husband Bobby Brown (an interview with Oprah): “I wasn’t going to be living with a man who decided that he didn’t want to live the same way I did or thought about marriage or me the same way.” “And my mother, being the warrior that she is, she stepped in and said, “Let it go. Let it go. Just let it go.”
Whitney Houston about God: “Oprah: Do you now know your own strength? Whitney: I know from whence my help cometh. I do know that. And I know that it’s strong within me. If ever I get low, I get weak, I know where I can turn to. I love the spirit of God so much that I’m not willing to trade that for anything. I’m not trading that for nothing. For nothing. Because I feel joy that I can’t even speak about. And peace that passes all understanding.
Whitney has had a good childhood but has been through many things as an adult. Even with having to go through all hard times she somehow managed to become the most brilliant singer and actresses and to keep many of her fans happy with her art. With more than 140 million albums sold worldwide she was the most awarded woman in the history of music.
RIP, Whitney. We will always love you!
