Favorite Quotes from Sharon Osbourne
“But I won’t be doing it next year; physically I can’t. This was my year, my last hurrah, my chance to complete the circle and put a few old ghosts to rest. I had something to prove. I wanted it to be the perfect finale- ten years of something I had been a part of starting.” – Sharon Osbourne
“We can go for weeks without talking to each other, but we never have to explain why we haven’t been in touch. We simply pick up where we left off. That’s true friendship.” – Sharon Osbourne
“Talent is a gift from God. That is something that you are born with. To be able to be born with singing talent is just a gift. You can learn how to sing better, but you cannot learn to sing with a certain quality. It is just something you are born with.” – Sharon Osbourne
“I didn’t even think of my breasts in a nostalgic way, I just wanted to be able to live my life without that fear all the time. It’s not ‘pity me’, it’s a decision I made that’s got rid of this weight that I was carrying around.” – Sharon Osbourne
“There is a hideous epidemic of it [marriage] being bound up with people’s careers. Everybody needs to stop looking for perfect, cardboard cut-out partners because that won’t work and it won’t last. If you have children and there is still love there, then you have to keep trying and absolutely exhaust that love before you opt out. But if you don’t have children, then just head for the hills.” – Sharon Osbourne
