There's no such thing is aging, but maturing and knowledge. It's beautiful, I call that beauty.
I don't know if the camera likes me, but I do like the camera.
The hardest thing to find in life is balance - especially the more success you have, the more you look to the other side of the gate. What do I need to stay grounded, in touch, in love, connected, emotionally balanced? Look within yourself.
My kids give me the balance to live right.
I was not a good-lookin' girl. I was extremely skinny. I wasn't pretty. I wasn't cool.
When you are surrounded by children, the child in you comes back.
I have become a housewife and there is no better job.
Everything that I decide to do means something, otherwise I don't do them.
I will perform My Heart Will Go On for the rest of my life and it will always remain a very emotional experience for me.
I've never been cool - and I don't care.
The hardest thing to find in life is balance - especially, the more success you have, the more you look to the other side of the gate.
I love beautiful things. I'm not into art so much, like paintings.
I'll be a Quebecker-Canadian. I'm from Quebec, and every time I go to a country, I say that. It's my roots, my origins, and it's the most important thing to me.
Don't be so familiar and so much into the details. Keep people dreaming. Close the window, and make them wonder.
When I hear something that comes from me that makes me fall down off my chair, it's not often.
There's been nothing but discipline, discipline, discipline all my life.
The craziest thing I've done is cut my hair blonde and short a couple of years ago. And people reached out to me saying, 'Celine, you're one of the most stable things we have in our lives, don't do that. We want you the way you are.'
I knew it was going to be the most extraordinary thing in my life, but how powerful it is, you can never know until you have a baby.
I worked really hard, and I surpassed myself... I didn't have, visually, what it took. I was not pretty, I had teeth problems, and I was very skinny. I didn't fit the mold.
Some people can't stand being alone. I love solitude and silence. But when I come out of it, I'm a regular talking machine. It's all or nothing for me.
Since I was a little child, my nose - I think it's too big.
My feet are definitely more grounded than before. And I know that I'm not holding onto a dream. I'm holding onto my life.
I looked in the audience. There were no strangers. Everybody was singing and cheering and hugging. That was a beautiful picture to look at.
I'm not looking for career attention, for more success, more money. I'm just singing songs I chose because I love them.
I often buy myself presents. Sometimes I will spend $100,000 in one day in a posh boutique.
It's really all about family, love and the children for me. I work at that every day.
I'm not going to be Rihanna. No one can be Rihanna except for Rihanna.
I gave life, and that is beautiful.
I think that life has a secret, and children they hold that secret. Maybe it's not given to everybody to discover this thing.
I love pencil skirts, but I'm always looking for a top. And then I'm afraid, by myself, to match, to try colors. When I wear a dress, I know the top matches the bottom. So I can't make a mistake.
I'm passionate about my fans and my shows. But my biggest reward in the success that is my life are my husband and kids.
Never say that your life is to be a singer. You want to sing because it's a part of your life. But if you don't succeed as a singer, it doesn't mean you don't have a life and it's over.
I love to sing and perform. It is what I do and love. It completes my life.
I'm very comfortable in my skin.
I love performing, but I never really liked show business. My success is my family. I want to be more successful as a mother.
I think it bothers people to see people that are happy and successful. So they try to find what's wrong with them.
Golf is a search for perfection, for balance. It's about meditation and concentration. You have to use hand and brain.
I have to say that when you tour the world, obviously, the jetlags and different hours and ways of living and traveling, a lot of hours in the plane, and you wake up in the morning and you're not quite sure where you are, and it is very tiring.
I want to be more successful as a mother than I am in show business.
I definitely would never go back to my 20s. The best is yet to come.
At home, we don't listen to our music-we listen to other people's music. It keeps you attached to the show business world.
The first song that I ever recorded was written by my mother.
I have shared my whole life. My private and my show business life. It helps me actually to feel my songs and to go on with my dreams.
On her son Rene: Oh my God, when he's 20 years old what's going to happen to me? I'm gonna marry him.

I started at 5 years old in the kitchen table with my family supporting me. I know where I'm from and I know exactly where I'm going.
My child was not only carried by me, but by the universe.
In terms of music, I can try anything I want, even something that doesn't work at all, because I'm not putting my career in jeopardy.
I have a wonderful husband. I have three amazing kids.
I have records in gold, in platinum, I have two Oscars, I have Grammys and so on.
I wasn't good at school.
I'm so centered in feeling great about me that I can give great things to my son and my husband and my family.
I don't just sing for free. It's my work. You're paid for what you do. And I work hard.
It seems strange to say this, but it is true: Coming back to Vegas to work is like going on vacation for me.
When you're home, I don't listen to my own music at home.
I only record songs that touch me in some way, ones that I can relate to.
I hope, what I hope the most is to be more successful as a mother than in show business, because to be a mother is the most difficult I will ever have to do.
When you're a parent, you sing better. It becomes a pure pleasure, rather than something I have to do.
I didn't have any of those good assets to have successful teenage years. It was hard. And what saved me was definitely my whole family. I knew where I was coming from and where I was going to.
