Mariah Carey Quotes:
On marriage after her split from Tommy Mottola: "Stay away from it!. I would marry again if it were about having kids, but other than that, I can't see myself doing it."
About her sexy image. "I know I have this image that's sexy, but I'm basically like Mary Poppins. That's my nickname! I'm prudish."
"This is for all of you out there tonight, reaching for a dream - don't ever give up! Never ever listen to anyone, when they try to discourage you, because they do that, believe me!" (Madison Square Garden, 1995)
"There is a light at the end of the tunnel...hopefully it's not a freight train!"
"One person could say "Hero is a schmaltzy piece of garbage, but another person can write me a letter and say, 'I've considered commiting suicide every day of my life for the last ten years until I heard that song and I realized after all I can be my own hero.' And that, that's an unexplainable feeling, like I've done something with my life, ya know?" -
"I'm not one of those people that goes into details of my personal life on national TV to get attention. Some things are better left unsaid"
