Michelle Obama Quotes

1. “I have never felt more confident in myself, more clear on who I am as a woman. But I am constantly thinking about my own health and making sure that I’m eating right and getting exercise and watching the aches and pains. I want to be this really fly 80-, 90-year old.” 



2. “Growing up, my parents worked to instill a sense of pride and self-confidence in me and my brother. They taught us to work hard, pursue our dreams and not worry about things that are beyond our control. Barack and I pass those same lessons along to our daughters.” 

(Marie Claire)


3. “I learned to turn stumbles and missteps into sources of motivation. A week with three tests and two papers wasn’t a reason to stress out, but a reason to plan. A negative comment from a professor in class wasn’t a reason to shut down, but a reason to ask even more questions.” 

(Eastern Kentucky University Commencement Speech, 2013)


4. “Whether you’ve worn our country’s uniform or not, we’re all called to serve and to give back to those around us,” she said. “Are there kids in your neighborhood who could use a mentor? Can you volunteer with an organization that serves military families? Can you pick up a few extra cans of vegetables and donate them to a food bank? These may seem so small, but they really make a difference.” 

(Eastern Kentucky University Commencement Speech, 2013)


5. “One of the lessons that I grew up with was to always stay true to yourself and never let what somebody else says distract you from your goals. And so when I hear about negative and false attacks, I really don’t invest any energy in them, because I know who I am.” 

(Marie Claire)


6. “No matter what, you give everybody a fair shake, and when somebody needs a hand, you offer yours. See, those were the gifts my parents gave me—their values. And I quickly learned that those gifts were far more valuable than money or connections.” 

(Eastern Kentucky University Commencement Speech, 2013)


7. “You’re going to come across all kinds of people from all different places and faiths and walks of life. And you can choose to pass them by without a word, or you can choose to reach out to them, no matter who they are or where they come from or what ideas they might have.” 

(Eastern Kentucky University Commencement Speech, 2013)


8. “That’s what’s always made this country great—embracing the diversity of experience and opinion that surrounds us everywhere we go.” 

(Eastern Kentucky University Commencement Speech, 2013)


9. “When we only talk to people who think like we do—we just get more stuck in our ways, more divided, and it gets harder to come together for a common purpose.” 

(Eastern Kentucky University Commencement Speech, 2013)
