I am what I am, and I do what I do


My philosophy is: It’s none of my business what people say of me, and think of me. I am what I am, and I do what I do. I expect nothing, and accept everything. And it makes life so much easier.

— Anthony Hopkins

  1. A lesson for us all!


  2. such a wonderful and simple philosophy and such a challenging way for many of us to live.


  3. How do you get to that level of clarity and “centered ness,” that’s what I want to know….


  4. The skeptic in me loves this quote and longs to embrace such a philosophy, yet ponders this brilliant actor’s success with this philosophy given his battles with alcohol and depression. Yet, if in fact he’s got it now, then I am super-happy. I used to have a little plaque that said “blessed are those who expect nothing, for they shall not be disappointed”


  5. Such wise words. I suspect getting to this level of understanding and acceptance is a life long journey. I’m not quite there yet…….


  6. Reblogged this on Bright, shiny objects… and commented:
    I am what I am — ego sum qui sum! Love that…


  7. He’s sure a great actor.


  8. Wise words to live by.


  9. Didn’t Popeye the sailor man said that?


  10. Brilliant man. I love him.


  11. I’ve always liked him…


  12. Love.


  13. I love his acting and this philosophy – did you hear the symphony he composed?
