Quotes by Whitney Houston
I'm good where I am at this moment. I've always been a thin girl. I'm not going to be fat, ever. Let's get that straight. Whitney is not going to be fat, ever. Okay? I've got some good saints out there - that's right - that pray for me constantly. You've gotta have that! You do. In grammar school some of the girls had problems with me. My face was too light. My hair was too long. It was the black-consciousness period, and I felt really bad. When I heard Aretha, I could feel her emotional delivery so clearly. It came from down deep within. That's what I wanted to do. I'm the kind of person, if, if I have a day that is nerve-wracking, or my week has been bad or something's going down, I won't eat. Some people eat, I don't eat. And it shows in my physical frame. When I decided to be a singer, my mother warned me I'd be alone a lot. Basically we all are. I'm a person who has life and wants to live, and always have. My mother taught me that when you stand in the truth and someone tells a lie about you, don't fight it. I'm just fiercely protective. It's like, that's my lair and nobody messes with my lair.
