Top Ellen DeGeneres Quotes

Ellen comes out on 'Time' (1997). Becomes gay pioneer.

1] One time I actually cleaned out my closet so good I ended up on the cover of Time magazine.

2] My grandmother started walking five miles a day when she was sixty. She’s ninety-seven now, and we don’t know where the hell she is. 

3] I see those picketers, and I think you know, if I weren’t a loving, non-violent, spiritual person, I would really go over there and grab those signs and smash them over their heads and shove them up their asses. But…I’m a loving, spiritual person.

4] Sometimes you can’t see yourself clearly until you see yourself through the eyes of others. 

5] Procrastinate now. Don’t put it off. 

6] I have the worst memory ever so no matter who comes up to me – they’re just, like, ‘I can’t believe you don’t remember me!” I’m like, ‘Oh Dad I’m sorry!’. 

7] Just go up to somebody on the street and say “You’re it!” and just run away. 

8] People always ask me, ‘Were you funny as a child?’ Well, no, I was an accountant. 

9] I was raised around heterosexuals, as all heterosexuals are, that’s where us gay people come from… you heterosexuals. 

10] I think they should have a Barbie with a buzz cut. 

11] Life is short. If you doubt me, ask a butterfly. Their average life span is a mere five to fourteen days.

    Okay for a minute I thought this was new and I was like “… but everyone knows she’s gay, she came out NOW?”

      No no. It’s like 13 years ago! (in 1997)

      But I needed a picture for the post and I figured: “What better than this iconic cover” 🙂
