As the years go by, I’ve added a few pounds on, and I like it. I like it that I look a little softer.
No one can make me work harder than I do, so I’m generally not interested in who I am competing with.
I arrived in California with no job, no car, and no money, but, like millions of other girls, a dream.
I was very lucky. My parents raised me in such a way that it never occurred to me that I wasn’t equal.
I try to treat people the way I would like to be treated, but I can’t worry about what everyone’s going to think.
Oprah is so bright, and her intelligence is so piercing that I don’t think anyone who spends a few minutes with her isn’t struck by that.
I enjoy speaking to other women about turning 50, and how we can enjoy it, and how we can explore it.
There are two things in life that I really wanted to do: be an actress, and to be in skin care, and I’ve gotten to do both of them.
When I became a mature woman, I put both feet firmly on the side of maturity.
I believe that how you feel is very important to how you look – that healthy equals beautiful.
When I started Victoria Principal Products, there were 22 full-time employees – they were all women.
Victory Over Violence is an organization that was created to help fund shelters for women and children.
Success doesn’t mean that you are healthy, success doesn’t mean that you’re happy, success doesn’t mean that you’re rested. Success really doesn’t mean that you look good, or feel good, or are good.
I’m generally competing with the ideal I have set for myself, and I’ve found that served me very well.
I went to a woman for advice about how to be in business, but I learned a great deal from men.
You can’t be responsible for the way people respond to you. You’re only responsible for yourself.
I became so consumed with trying to live up to what the public expected that I lost myself. I don’t know of anyone else who can say this.
I’m about to become a member of the Chemists Society of America. I’m very proud of that.
There came a moment in my life when I realized that I had stepped into another part of my life. I used to walk into a room full of people and think, do they like me? And one day I walk in and I thought, do I like them?
It is so easy to forget that this is good that we’re alive. We should be enjoying this gift of being alive.
When I don’t plumb the depths or the opportunities of each day, I don’t have joy.
If wanted to play a sport, I played a sport. If I wanted to do things that many girls born in 1950 didn’t do, I did it.
