Favorite Quotes from Barbra Streisand 

“I wish I could be like [George Bernard] Shaw, who once read a bad review of one of his plays, called the critic, and said: ‘I have your review in front of me and soon it will be behind me.’” – Barbra Streisand 

“To have ego means to believe in your own strength. And to also be open to other people’s views. It is to be open, not closed. So, yes, my ego is big, but it’s also very small in some areas. My ego is responsible for doing what I do—bad or good.” – Barbra Streisand 

“What is exciting is not for one person to be stronger than the other … but for two people to have met their match and yet they are equally as stubborn, as obstinate, as passionate, as crazy as the other.” – Barbra Streisand 

“I think when I was younger, I wanted to be a star until I became a star, and then it’s a lot of work. It’s work to be a star. I don’t enjoy the stardom part. I only enjoy the creative process.” – Barbra Streisand 

“I guess if you have an original take on life or something about you is original, you don’t have to study people who came before you. You don’t have to mimic anybody. You just have a gut feeling inside, an instinct that tells you what’s right for you, and you can’t do it in any other way.” – Barbra Streisand

    I have been a fan for as long as I can remember. I grew up singing a five. I was so mesmerized that a lot of of my songs have a lot of Barbra’s influence. I even got a perm during the A Star is Born Boy. Oh, even many of my friends found the change uncanny. Anyway, I love Babs. Her music can be difficult to cover, but I still love it no matter what! Much respect. She’s a mega star always!
