Quotes Jessica Liked

“There are enough people in the world who are going to write you off. You don't need to do that to yourself.”
Susan Boyle, The Woman I Was Born to Be: My Story

“Unmarried women in their forties, with false teeth and tousled hair, aren't usually held in the highest esteem by our society. The feeling seemed to be that if I could be a success then anyone could!”
Susan Boyle, The Woman I Was Born to Be: My Story

“If my story means anything, it is that people are very often too quick to judge a person by the way they look or by their quirks of behavior. I may not have quite the same sense of humour as other people, but at least I do have a sense of humour, and I've needed it! As a society, we seem to have very tight restrictions on what is considered "normal.”
Susan Boyle, The Woman I Was Born to Be: My Story

Lisa Could you give us the link to it again? I seem to have inadvertently deleted it and now I can't find it.

Jessica (Books: A true story) The link to the audition is here

Is that the link you were looking for?

Jessica (Books: A true story) Or were you looking for the prologue to her book? I found it on Oprah's website.
