36 Eye-Opening Quotes by Leonardo DiCaprio That Can Make You Stronger

“Too disruptive” was the reason why DiCaprio was fired from the children’s TV show Romper Room at the beginning of his career. It was a long way to the top, from being rejected and turned down many times to becoming one of the most wanted actors on screen. He has never let his fails control him, he gave himself no other choice but to succeed. Even though he’s achieved so much, he continues to be a simple and respectful man who cares about the people around him and the environment. His mindset is worth learning from if you want to become as strong and as victorious as he is.

  • I have very little fashion sense, and to tell you the truth, I give it very little thought. I dress to be as comfortable as I possibly can.

  • I think I will always feel like an outsider.

  • Drugs? Everyone has a choice and I choose not to do drugs.
  • Most of the time I do feel like I need someone else when I’m alone. But I can still get by with just my own company and that makes me a stronger person.

  • I’ve been very lucky to have achieved a lot of the things that I dreamt of achieving as a young man. But, at the end of the day — and I truly believe this — it is not about achieving great wealth or success. Because they don’t bring happiness, ultimately.

  • My parents, who were split up, were so good at keeping my environment strong and keeping everything around me not focused on the fact that we were poor. They got me culture. They took me to museums. They showed art to me. They read to me. And my mother drove 2 hours a day to take me to University Elementary School.
