Gypsy Quotations

I still have a Gypsy sense of adventure. I don't think I have slept in the same bed for more than three or four months my whole life. I am always planting vegetables that I never get to eat and flowers that I never see flower. I have always moved around the world.
Helen Mirren

I've always seen myself as one of those 'show people.' My earliest memories are wanting and needing to entertain people, like a gypsy traveler who goes from place to place, city to city, performing for audiences and reaching people.
Brittany Murphy

Besides, I'm a gypsy at heart and I like to travel around.
Reba McEntire

Ralph Hodgson

I'm sort of a gypsy at heart and don't like to stay in one place too long.
Ming-Na Wen
