I Wonder Quotes
I was never a pretty girl, so I wasn't the one to get the boy. I used to cast myself as a good sport.

The point is that when I see a sunset or a waterfall or something, for a split second it's so great, because for a little bit I'm out of my brain, and it's got nothing to do with me.

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

In my later years, I have looked in the mirror each day and found a happy person staring back. Occasionally I wonder why I can be so happy.

When the first big paycheque with 'Dumb And Dumber' hit, I went: 'Gosh, I wonder if this will affect my performance. Will I do a take and think, was that worth $7 million?' But that never happened. If anything, it made me rebel against that thing when people who get rich start playing it safe.
