Jessica Lange quotes

The natural state of motherhood is unselfishness. When you become a mother, you are no longer the center of your own universe. You relinquish that position to your children.

Photography was a blessing because it filled my time.

There are no explanations, there are no answers.

To work on the actual location I think is great. This thing of going to Canada and pretending you're in New York, it's terrible.

This idea of selfishness as a virtue, as opposed to generosity: That, to me, is unnatural.

For me, nothing has ever taken precedence over being a mother and having a family and a home.

Acceptance and tolerance and forgiveness, those are life-altering lessons.

For me, acting was always a way to explore emotions - to dip into the well and really try to reach rock bottom down there. That was the most exciting part of it. I hadn't found anything that really allowed me to do that until I came upon acting.

I never shot on sets, but if I was traveling somewhere or on location, I would always have my camera, and I'd always be - it's that kind of fly on the wall approach to photography, though. I don't engage the subject. I like to sneak around, skulk about in the dark.

I never felt like I belonged in Minnesota when I was growing up there. That's why I was out the door as soon as I turned 18.

Allow the diversity to exist. There is nothing wrong with it. Hell, we put up with the religious right-we can put up with transgendered human beings.

Families survive, one way or another. You have a tie, a connection that exists long after death, through many lifetimes.

The success of our operas rests most of the time in the hands of the conductor. This person is as necessary as a tenor or a prima donna. Giuseppe Verdi

Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will be as one. John Lennon
