Forgiving is not forgetting. Forgiving is remembering without pain.

โ€” Celia Cruz

The most sublime Celia Cruz quotes that are life-changing and eye-opening

Singing is my life. It has always been my life. It will always be my life.


I always clean before the cleaning lady comes.

If not, when I come home, I can't find anything. Cleaning ladies are always hiding things you leave out.


You would give up your career if you lost your voice for good, or if the impresarios stopped calling, or the audiences stopped coming. But as long as those things are there, I don't plan to stop. There is nothing that makes me feel better than to be with my public.


If I don't work, I'll be sitting on the couch watching TV, eating popcorn and getting like a cow.


When opportunity presents itself grab it. Hold on tight and donโ€™t let go.


My English is not very good-looking.


My life is singing. I don't plan on retiring. I plan to die on a stage. I can have a headache but when it's time to sing and I step on that stage there is no more headache.


When people hear me sing, I want them to be happy, happy, happy.

I don't want them thinking about when there's not any money, or when there's fighting at home. My message is always felicidad - happiness.


I love living on that stage. Without that, I'd die.
