“I’ve never felt like I needed to change… I’ve always thought, ‘If you want someone different, pick somebody else.'” – Melissa McCarthy

“One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesn’t pay to get discouraged. Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore your faith in yourself.” – Lucille Ball
