Below we list some words of wisdom from Goldie Hawn.

"If we can just let go and trust that things will work out they way they're supposed to, without trying to control the outcome, then we can begin to enjoy the moment more fully. The joy of the freedom it brings becomes more pleasurable than the experience itself."

"Everybody ages. Everybody dies. There is no turning back the clock. So the question in life becomes: What are you going to do while you're here"

"There are three words I like to repeat to myself: glass half full. Just to remind myself to be grateful for everything I have."

"I've come to believe that seeking happiness is not a frivolous pursuit. It's honorable and necessary. And most people forget even to think about it."

"We are born with the seed of joy; it is up to us to nurture it."

"Stress is something that's created in the mind, basically. It's how we look at things. So our greatest defense against stress is the ability to change our minds; to change our thinking."

"The only thing that will make you happy is being happy with who you are, and not who people think you are."

"We have to embrace obstacles to reach the next stage of joy"

"Youthfulness is connected to the ability to see things new for the first time. So if your eyes still look at life with wonder, then you will seem young, even though you may not be chronologically young."

"The beauty of getting older is the surprise of what else you can do to make the world a better place with the wisdom that you've accrued over those years."

"We need to have empathy. When we lose empathy, we lose our humanity."

"I believe that life is about doing. It's about changing. It's about transitioning. I can't imagine, as a human being, not being able to grow."

"You often meet your fate on the road you take to avoid it."

"if we cultivate compassion for those who have hurt us, we have the possibility of overcoming our anger, pain, and fear. compassion is a great medicine."

"Never apologize for your success because you worked hard for it."

"It is not the question, what am I going to be when I grow up; you should ask the question, who am I going to be when I grow up."

"The biggest lesson we have to give our children is truth."

"When you look at the amount of medication that has been administered to children today, it stands the hair up on your arms. Because this is the way that they are helping children manage their emotions."

"Marriage is ridiculous."

"I'm not afraid of my femininity and I'm not afraid of my sexuality."

"Liberation is an interesting word, because you can be liberated from external things, and also from your internal dialogue."

"Letting go of someone we love is the hardest thing we will ever do. Some people never surrender to love for the fear of being hurt. But to not have loved, to not have felt the immense joy it brings, would have been a far worse kind of death."

"Comedy breaks down walls. It frees us for just a moment from the ugliness of this world."

"A rested face is a beautiful face. However you can, find your place of rest and peace."
