Celebrities are not here only to entertain us. They have the ability to inspire and make the world a better place. Here are some of the most inspirational celebrity quotes on how to be successful in life and in business.

JOHNNY DEPP
“If there’s any message to my work, it is ultimately that it’s OK to be different, that it’s good to be different, that we should question ourselves before we pass judgment on someone who looks different, behaves different, talks different, is a different color.”

CLINT EASTWOOD
“Respect your efforts, respect yourself. Self-respect leads to self-discipline. When you have both firmly under your belt, that’s real power.”

DENZEL WASHINGTON
“You pray for rain, you gotta deal with the mud too. That’s a part of it. I’d be more frightened by not using whatever abilities I’d been given. I’d be more frightened by procrastination and laziness.”

OPRAH WINFREY
“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”

EMMA STONE
“You’re only human. You live once and life is wonderful, so eat the damned red velvet cupcake.”

TINA FEY
“Don’t waste your energy trying to educate or change opinions; go over, under, through, and opinions will change organically when you’re the boss. Or they won’t. Who cares? Do your thing and don’t care if they like it.”

VIN DIESEL
“If you’re the type of person who has to fulfill your dreams, you’ve gotta be resourceful to make sure you can do it. I came out to California when I was 21, thinking my New York credentials would take me all the way. I came back home a year later all dejected and a failure.”

SYLVESTER STALLONE
“I believe there’s an inner power that makes winners or losers. And the winners are the ones who really listen to the truth of their hearts.”

JOSEPH GORDON LEVITT
“Why am I doing the work I’m doing? Why am I friends with this person? Am I living the best life I possibly can? Questions are often looked upon as questions of doubt but I don’t see it that way at all. I question things to stay present, to make sure I’m doing what I’m supposed to be doing.”

HARRISON FORD
“‘May the Force be with you’ is charming but it’s not important. What’s important is that you become the Force – for yourself and perhaps for other people.”

ANGELINA JOLIE
“I don’t believe in guilt, I believe in living on impulse as long as you never intentionally hurt another person, and don’t judge people in your life. I think you should live completely free.”

JACK NICHOLSON
“I don’t think many people have a very good understanding of leisure and the importance it plays in our lives.”

HUGH JACKMAN
“There comes a certain point in life when you have to stop blaming other people for how you feel or the misfortunes in your life. You can’t go through life obsessing about what might have been.”

LEONARDO DICAPRIO
“If you can do what you do best and be happy, you are further along in life than most people.”

NATALIE PORTMAN
“I don’t mean to criticize anyone in any way that I wouldn’t criticize myself. I think people should have fun, and have a good time, and enjoy the luck that we have to be lazy and dwell in consumerism. But I think that it’s a balance. And our job as actors is empathy.”

NEIL PATRICK THOMAS
“Sometimes you can have the smallest role in the smallest production and still have a big impact.”
