Idol Quotations

I'm cute - and God I hate that. Because that's not cool. I'm like your niece, and nobody wants to date their niece. It's the chubby cheeks. The whole reason people voted for me on American Idol is because I'm an everyday, normal girl.
Kelly Clarkson

Man's mind is like a store of idolatry and superstition; so much so that if a man believes his own mind it is certain that he will forsake God and forge some idol in his own brain.
John Calvin

Ambition is an idol, on whose wings great minds are carried only to extreme; to be sublimely great or to be nothing.
Shakti Gawain

I felt like I got more comfortable on 'Idol' when I just started being myself and not trying to be what I thought I had to be.
Kara DioGuardi

To love the one who loves you, To admire the one who admires you, In a word, to be the idol of one's idol, Is exceeding the limit of human joy; It is stealing fire from heaven.
Delphine de Girardin
