The powerful quotes of 2020: Our list of most influential celebs this year
As crazy of a year as 2020 has been, there have been good moments. Moments of grit where we overcame things we never thought we could handle. Moments of overwhelming emotion where we’ve learned to grapple with our true selves while stuck in situations of isolation. If you’ve lived to survive 2020 that in itself is a powerful thing.
Celebrities have been living alongside us in this tsunami of a year. Some have really shown the shallow, morally deficient people that they are, while others have been a light for many in the darkness. As much as it’s not wise to put people on a pedestal, it’s sometimes nice to acknowledge the good people with a wide reach have inspired. Here are some powerful quotes from celebrities this year.
Wellness & balance 2020 quotes
“Wellness for me is all things in balance. Welcoming the constantly shifting flow of everything in your life.”
— Oprah Winfrey
“Instead of working towards the outcome, work towards a new identity for yourself. If you declare to yourself: “I want to be a healthy person”, then you can prove that to yourself through small, every day actions.”
— Nati Valderrama
“There’s so much noise out there, so if we can focus on what’s actually the reality and the facts of our world and our lives right now and what we are tasked with changing right now, if you can affect one person, 10 people, it’s making a difference. Every single person, every individual right now in this election can make a difference.”
— Aaron Tveit
Empowering 2020 quotes
“2009 was the year my daddy died. 2009 was the year I lived in my car & cried myself to sleep on thanksgiving. 2019 is the year my album & song went #1. 2019 is the year I told my mama I can buy her a house. Anything can happen in a decade. Tomorrow is the beginning of your anything.”
“Your vote is your voice, plain and simple. When you don’t vote, you give all your power away to the people who do. Staying home means those folks are deciding everything from how your schools are run to how you access health care to how your streets are policed. Because think about it: if voting wasn’t important, why would so many people spend so much time trying to stop you from doing it? The 2016 election was determined by fewer than 80,000 votes split up by three different states. Your voice matters, your vote matters — so very much.”
— Michelle Obama
“So many people have died and fought for the right to vote. I am very passionate about voting and I think people can see that when they see the posts on my various platforms. This is my first time voting in a presidential election. My family taught us voting was important. My brothers and I would go to the polls with our parents. It was a big deal — an expectation. There was never a question if we would vote, only when we would vote — morning or evening. I have always looked forward to voting. To many that is the ultimate act of adulting. I get to make a choice about leaders that I want to represent me. This action symbolizes so much power and is a living example of our democracy that I learned about in school. I now get to be a part of the solution and an active member of our modern day democracy.”
— Nia Sioux
“Whatever the world looks like in 10 years and 20 years, part of that is up to you. I urge you to let this current moment push you to improve yourself in all areas of your life.”
Weird, but life-changing 2020 quotes
“Dear Me, you’re getting older. I see lines. Especially when you smile. Your nose is getting bigger… You look (and feel) weird as you get used to this new reality. … get on board cause I am about to AGE THE OL FASHIONED WAY (in a tutu ruling s— at 30 mph 100 ft in the air over 40) yassssssss.”
“There is that voice in my head that says, ‘You are a 55-year-old woman.. What am I doing?!’ [Photographer Randall Slavin] said to me, ‘You know, 55 is the new 55.’ . . . I’m really having a great time.”
— Teri Hatcher
“Anyone else put ice cubes in their cereal?”
— Gene Simmons
