Julie Andrews Motivational Quotations:

  • “Behaving like a princess is work. It's not just about looking beautiful or wearing a crown. It's more about how you are inside.”

  •  “Perseverance is failing 19 times and succeeding the 20th.”

  • “By nature, I really am a fairly bouncy and sunny individual.”

  •  “I think every young girl at some point in her early life wonders what it's like to be a princess. They like the idea of dressing up and the fun of it.”

  • “Because of the Thames I have always loved inland waterways - water in general, water sounds - there's music in water. Brooks babbling, fountains splashing. Weirs, waterfalls; tumbling, gushing.”

  •  “I like - I actually love classical music very much.”

  •  “My mum gave me pretty good genes in that department. She had gorgeous skin. That good English complexion. She never seemed to have a blemish that I knew of.”

  •  “You just don't know in life. Life knocks you about and pushes you over boundaries. But be ready. Do your homework; that's all I can say.”

  •  “I'm resilient, and I'm professional.”

  •  “I am a liberated woman. And I do believe if a woman does equal work she should be paid equal money. But personally I am feminine and I do like male authority to lean on.”

  •  “There is one thing I should say, and it's important: Young Broadway singers and anybody who is an orator of any kind - lawyers who have to speak in court or pastors or anyone who has a lot of stress on their vocal cords: You should do the maintenance. You should do whatever it takes to feel fresh and good.”

  •  “Whenever I think of my birthplace, Walton-on-Thames, my reference first and foremost is the river. I love the smell of the river; love its history, its gentleness. I was aware of its presence from my earliest years. Its majesty centered me, calmed me, was a solace to a certain extent.”

  •  “The arts bridge cultures; they're good for the economy, and they're good for fostering empathy and decency.”

  •  “I justified working so hard by knowing that I was helping to maintain the roof over our heads.”

  •  “Who could have imagined that life would have taken such marvelous twists and turns or that I would often be so fortunate to be in the right place at the right time?”

  •  “More than anything, the arts are the best teaching tool.”

  •  “You never start out being a star.”

  •  “I hate the word wholesome.”

  •  “I was raised never to carp about things and never to moan, because in vaudeville, which is my background, you just got on with it through all kinds of adversities.”

  •  “Who would have thought that a story about a professor of phonetics would result in it being probably one of the great shows ever for musical theatre? It's a seemingly odd subject.”

  •  “For me, whenever I choose a song to sing, it's about the lyric first.”

  •  “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.”

    Julie Andrews


  • “If you're not educated to enjoy the arts, if you're not taken to a concert, or you don't hear something beautiful, you don't know what you're missing.”

  •  “You'd think, of course, it's about the melody - that's a given. But really, I'm no good at singing a song unless it has a good lyric.”

  •  “I think I'm just proudest to be the lady who was asked to play Mary Poppins. She's such a wonderful character, and there's so much tremendous talent out there. So I feel very lucky to be the one who got to play 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.”

  •  “Broadway is a tough, tough arena for singing.”

  •  “Touring itself - and I was very young, and a lot of it I did by myself - it's lonely, but it does give you some kind of spine, I think. It does give you some kind of grit.”

  •  “The loveliest roles, for me, have a growth arc - a beginning, a middle, and an end - and I'm always grateful when I can find one of those emotional journeys.”

  •  “I am an optimistic lady.”

  •  “'Simeon's Gift' is really - it's about a musician who - in the Middle Ages, who goes out to find his muse.”

  •  “All love shifts and changes. I don't know if you can be wholeheartedly in love all the time.”

  •  “Garry Marshall is a joy. I feel so utterly safe in his hands.”

  •  “I adored my birth father and constantly worried that I was being disloyal to him and his schoolteacher roots if I spent too much time performing and enjoying it.”

  •  “I don't want to be thought of as wholesome.”

  •  “I have been called a nun with a switchblade where my privacy is concerned. I think there's a point where one says, that's for family, that's for me.”

  •  “Singing has never been particularly easy for me.”

  •  “I was lucky enough to be the lady that was asked to be Maria in the Sound Of Music, and that film was fortunate enough to be huge hit. The same with Mary Poppins. I got terribly lucky in that respect.”

  •  “All careers go up and down like friendships, like marriages, like anything else, and you can't bat a thousand all the time.”

  •  “A lot of my life happened in great, wonderful bursts of good fortune, and then I would race to be worthy of it.”

  •  “And I think as long as a song has beautiful lyrics, I'm so happy.”

  •  “I was named after my two grandmothers - Julia Elizabeth.”

  •  “I am told that the first comprehensible word I uttered as a child was 'home.'”

  •  “As a rule, my focus is on classical music, but I love jazz. I love everything, actually.”

  •  “A lot of films seem to go to the lowest common denominator.”

  •  “My sense of the family history is somewhat sketchy, because my mother kept a great deal to herself.”

  •  “I'm the lucky lady that was asked to be in those wonderful iconic pieces.”

    Julie Andrews


  • “My voice needed oiling, and then it took off.”

  •  “I love to prune my roses. That's the one thing I really feel I do pretty well. Other things I usually, because I travel so much, leave to my gardeners who know what I love. But I do love to prune them, because you forget everything else. It's like if you're a painter, you can forget everything else while you're doing it.”

  •  “I'd say just go with the flow. And I take my hat off to any mother out there who works full-time and raises a family as well. It's hard work.”

  •  “I'd love to have a really flourishing vegetable garden, and I'd love to have a better area for a rose garden or a cutting garden, but I don't. You have to develop a garden in the way that it's meant to be developed.”

  •  “I've always admired gardens. My father was a great nature lover and would always take me for walks. We lived not too far away from huge rhododendron estates and azalea estates, and when they're in bloom in England, they're just riotous.”

  •  “Every time I go out to perform, believe me. You never lose that fear of, 'I hope I do it right. I hope I don't fall flat on my face. I hope this will be good for them.'”

  •  “When you are traveling in vaudeville, you experience so many different kinds of audiences, depending on what time of the week it is, how long the pubs have been open, and things like that.”

  •  “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.”

  •  “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.”
