“I often think it's not about what happens to you, it's about how you handle it.”
Sarah Millican, How to be Champion
“I wanted to male it clear that your life doesn't need to be perfect; you don't need to look a certain way to be happy. You don't need to be amazing at everything all of the time. I am, at times, a shoddy daughter, friend, person.”
Sarah Millican, How to be Champion
“Don’t be mean to people you know and don’t be mean to people you don’t. You have no idea what someone is dealing with at the time. Be nice or be quiet.”

“Remember something you were good at as a kid and bring it back as a hobby now that you're an adult. I gave gardening a go and also crying whenever I drop something on the floor and can't find it. Crying always makes it appear againg, oddly.”

“When someone dies, put up photos of them in happier times around the house. We had them everywhere when my granda died: on mirrors, back of the toilet door.

“I think you have to take your worth from yourself. If you don't look like people do on the telly, it doesn't matter. If you have nothing in common with the women and men in magazines, it doesn't matter. They're not the norm. Magazines women are put there to make us buy stuff. All it makes me want to buy is food. And fewer magazines. Fuck that, none. If you know that you are a good person, kind, hardworking, interesting and interested then go with that. Fuck what your hair looks like. Or your nails. The heels of of my feet are covered in such hard skin that they make a noise on wooden floors. Do I dash out and get hard skin-melting shite from Boots? No, I just think, if shoes become scarce I'll be fine. My husband once said that skin is nature's shoes.”
Sarah Millican, How to be Champion
“I tried to think of what a tabloid newspaper might call my book and came up with ‘Cakey Cakey Fat Cunt’.”
Sarah Millican, How to be Champion: My Autobiography
“But I suppose that is anxiety for you. It doesn’t make an awful lot of sense. It’s often not what does happen that causes my heart rate to quicken but what might happen.”
Sarah Millican, How to be Champion: My Autobiography
“If what makes you happy makes me very sad then I have to put me first.”
Sarah Millican, How to be Champion: My Autobiography
“I think better of myself than I used to. I think that’s because now I allow myself to take my worth from me rather than from others.”
Sarah Millican, How to be Champion: My Autobiography
“For learning how to say no. NAILED. Tip: think of how uncomfortable it is to say no and compare it to how fucked off you’ll be when the yes appears in your diary. Another tip: you don’t always have to give reasons. Just look a bit sad at having to say no – then say no.”
