Emma Thompson Motivational Quotations:

  • “A lot of very beautiful women can be a pain because all they're thinking about is how they look.”

  •  “My appearance has changed a lot over the years, but it has far more to do with how I feel about being a woman.”

  • “It’s unfortunate and I really wish I wouldn't have to say this, but I really like human beings who have suffered. They're kinder.”

  •  “Any problem, big or small, within a family, always seems to start with bad communication. Someone isn't listening.”

  • “You can't imagine what satisfaction can be gotten from throwing a pie into someone's face.”

  •  “This morning, I went to wipe my hands on a tea towel, and while I was using it, it seemed like it felt a bit light. I unfolded it and realized my daughter had cut little bits out of it to make frocks for her dolls!”

  •  “Maybe I don't take myself so seriously any more. And I don't care how I'm judged. I'm past all that.”

  •  “I have a nervous breakdown in the film and in one scene I get to stand at the top of the stairs waving an empty sherry bottle which is, of course, a typical scene from my daily life, so isn't much of a stretch.”

  •  “I don't think people understand that being poor means you have to work from dawn until dusk just to survive through the day. I think there's some notion that poor people lie about all day not doing anything.”

  •  “If you've got to my age, you've probably had your heart broken many times. So it's not that difficult to unpack a bit of grief from some little corner of your heart and cry over it.”

Emma Thompson

  •  “Sometimes you'll have some things, and sometimes you'll have other things. And you do not need it all at once; it's not good for you.”
  •  “I do think that despite my best efforts to resist it, I am now a grown-up. It's due to lots of very difficult decisions that you make over a long period of time - about motherhood, wifehood, and work, and all the things that one has to make decisions about.”

  •  “I've a problem with the word charity because I think that NGOs, as I prefer calling them, really do take the work of moral and social responsibilities that ought to be taken on by governments.”

  •  “Children are the most wonderful audiences. What's struck me most is that that they watch it so silently, until the end when they shriek and shout and clap.”

  •  “I don't mean being famous is a perk, because one knows that it's not necessarily a perk, but there are certain perks to being well-known and respected in one's field. Public perks. Like, I don't know, general friendliness and willingness to please, just to point out two.”

  •  “We've got people looking at our seamy side and our sad side a lot of the time because that's easier. It's much more difficult to make a film about happiness with lots of jokes in it.”

  •  “It's not my fault that there is this gap between rich and poor, it is the fault of governments. I want a different world. One where I don't wake up thinking I'm so lucky to be able to feed my daughter.”

  •  “My worst quality is impatience.”

  •  “My mother has never approved of high heels. As a result, I have never been able to walk in high heels - and they were all I ever wanted. So of course, my daughter has two pairs.”

  •  “But when I lose my temper, I find it difficult to forgive myself. I feel I've failed. I can be calm in a crisis, in the face of death or things that hurt badly. I don't get hysterical, which may be masochistic of me.”

  •  “There is that thing about not working with animals and children - I don't think that's true. Although you should never work with donkeys.”

  •  “And it's absolutely true that male sexual behaviour and female responses to male demands change a lot when they start communicating - and the levels of the communication that I've seen on the ground in very, very poor areas are so high and I think why don't we have that here?”

  •  “A lot of people in my world - in the acting world - have either lost friends to Aids or live with HIV because its origin in our culture, in New York for instance, was in the gay community.”

  •  “I have had lots of friends who've been affected by Aids and a very good friend of mine, Oscar Moore, died of Aids and I was with him in his last year quite a bit. And of course he was a man living in a very rich culture with a wealthy family who was able to afford health care.”

  • “If you don't want women to do whatever they need to do then you must provide them with food, you must provide them with shelter and their basic human rights.”

    Emma Thompson

  •  “I think that my work is my attempt, I suppose, is to try and become a piece of connective tissue. I'm trying to communicate with people here and in America - in rich countries - about what I see on the ground in badly affected areas.”

  •  “It is remarkable how many misconceptions there are here about life in the developing world and I think that that knowledge gap has done a lot to contribute to the imbalance quite frankly.”

  •  “Indeed - judicious, consistent parenting is a dream of mine. No judgements, learning space and listening carefully are my goals.”

  •  “The fact is that young people are going to have sex whether you like it or not.”

  •  “Tell him I mind having to look pretty, that's what I mind, because it is so much more of an effort.”

  •  “I was brought up by very witty people who were dealing with quite difficult things: disease and death... I was brought up by people who tended to giggle at funerals.”

  •  “The trouble is it's very difficult to pin-point the most important thing because Aids affects everyone in different levels of society, differently and you have to respond to it differently.”

  •  “What was important was trying to create something that families could watch together and enjoy together.”

  •  “We belabour, I think, under a very heavy crust of consumerism really.”

  •  “I understand what it's like to come with your family, and to uproot yourself and come to another culture. You need a lot of support. People say, 'She's got her daughter; she's got her husband.' Yeah, but she hasn't got anyone else.”

  • “One is a child when one has a child. No one says, 'You will never be the same again.' Which is the truth! And we're all supposed to be happy all the time. What is that about?”

  • “Sometimes I get to put on posh frocks and be Madam Glamour, the vendor of my wares. My lovely friend Kath, a stylist, puts me into things I'd never dream of. But my real life is very different. It's very, very home-based - an intense domestic life, that's the core of everything.”

  • “London has always been a haven for victims of cruelty, and been improved by them. Yet I can see it changing now. Outsiders are demonised, there are little bits of legislation, people are scared.”

  • “I have to write for everyone. What really fascinates me is how you make films or make stories that can genuinely be shared by different groups.”

  • “If you're actually allowing your creative part to control your writing rather than a more commercial instinct or motive, then you'll find that all sorts of interesting things will bubble up to the surface”

  • “The thing that influenced me most in relation to 'Nanny McPhee' were the Westerns I watched with my father. All the Spaghetti Westerns; all the Virginians; all the High Chaparrals. Because if you think about the form, it's a stranger from out of town.”

  • “When husbands and fathers leave, their wives and daughters tend to value themselves less as a result.”

  • “Film is so much to do with perfection and how differently you can feel about someone at the beginning of the film and the end of the film.”

  • “British aren't really known for their physical loveliness but firemen, generally speaking, are gorgeous.”

  • “The only way you can have it all is by delegating all the running of the home to other people - which I don't ever want to do... So you do it yourself, and it takes time and energy and effort. And if you give it the time, it's profoundly enjoyable.”

  • “You can't be a great mum and work the whole time necessarily; those two things aren't ideal. We have an awful lot to work on and to debate about in relation to our working lives, because it isn't working for a lot of people, particularly for a lot of women.”
