„This is part of what a family is about, not just love. It's knowing that your family will be there watching out for you. Nothing else will give you that. Not money. Not fame. Not work.“

„If you love what you do, you can balance and you can juggle (work and family). You have to set your priorities straight. You can't just work, work, work.“

—  Heidi Klum German model, television host, businesswoman, fashion designer, television producer, and actress 1973

From an interview for Entertainment Tonight 5 November 2008 http://www.etonline.com/news/2008/11/67315/index.html
Context: If you love what you do, you can balance and you can juggle (work and family). You have to set your priorities straight. You can't just work, work, work. Because then all of a sudden, you don't have a family... then why did you work so much when you're all by yourself in the end? So for me, I always wanted to have a family, for me that was the most important thing, and I found a man that wanted to have that with me.

„Fame doesn't change anyone, it just finds idiots; if you are a anonymous idiot, only your family know it; but if you are famous, all people will know that you are idiot.“

—  Patricia Conde Spanish actress 1979

La fama no cambia a nadie, lo único que hace es descubrir a los idiotas; si eres un idiota anónimo, sólo lo saben en tu casa y poco más, pero cuando eres famoso, lo sabrán en todo el mundo que lo eres.
