It’s important to give it all you have while you have the chance.
– Shania Twain
There was a time when I was – after my very first record from Nashville, I thought I might not be one of those who actually really makes it, and I may end up back in Canada, just playing clubs. And that might – this might have just been it.
I’ll always be sad that my marriage ended.
Now that I have and I’m not a have-not, I’ve learned how important it is to maintain humility.
I was not naturally meant to be on stage. I hated being in the spotlight; I was scared.
I feel like I’m on top of the world. Honestly, I feel like I’ve climbed a very giant mountain, and I’m just standing right on top with my arms wide open and breathing rarified air.
I feel sexy when I get out of the tub – your skin is fresh and you’ve put up your hair without looking.
The only reason that you do visual is solely for the visual. That’s the only reason. It doesn’t sell your music for you.
My father was a beautiful man.
I temporarily lost my hope in love, and it was temporary, thank goodness.
Without a doubt, the best way to get to know me is through my music.
I feel like in a way I’m starting over, with everything.
I certainly could’ve gone off track many, many times in my youth.
It’s very hard to be honest with yourself when something’s just not working.
I want romance.
I’m always soul searching on a spiritual level.
Being betrayed is one of the most valuable lessons life can teach.
Writing is very much a playground – an artistic playground. It’s the most fun thing I do.
I have arm-wrestled here and there… guys seem to want to test my strength.
I want to talk to people that have been through big disappointments, big emotional crises, deep life struggles, and I will learn something from that.
I wouldn’t call myself a feminist, because I think there are differences between men and women.
I lost my sense of trust, honesty and compassion. I crashed down and became what I consider an emotional mess. I’ve never been so miserable in my whole life. I just wanted to go to bed and never get up.
I’ve succeeded as far as I’m concerned – I don’t feel that I have any cliffs I could fall over anytime soon.
Later in my life, I’m going to look back and smile and be very fulfilled. I know that if I don’t give it my all right now I’ll regret it later. That’s very important to me, because I’ve worked all my life to have this.
Suffering does not discriminate.
One day, someone said to me, ‘Do you want to go jump out of an airplane?’ I felt like I had nothing to lose anymore, so I said, ‘Why not?’ And every day since then, I ask myself that question.
If I hadn’t had a childhood career, I probably would’ve signed a contract with the first person I came across.
I’m never at my best on television. There’s a row of cameras between you and the audience, and it’s very weird, very confusing.
I want to be successful, but I don’t really have what it takes to do it comfortably.
My music must reflect whatever’s going on in my mind, and my life needs to evolve for me to discover who it is I’m becoming.
