Leo is associated with creativity, drama, ego, heart, children, etc…
A grownup is a child with layers on.
“To me, the whole process of being a brushstroke in someone else’s painting is a little difficult.”
The unique thing about bodybuilding is that when I compete it is just me on a stage alone. There is no field, no bat, no ball, no skis, no skates. All other athletes have to use equipment, like a football. But I don’t use anything in competition except myself. It’s just me up there. Me alone. No coach. No nothing.
“I’m the King of the World!”
I spent a lot of time with a crown on my head.
Have a Leo Quote? Share it!
here’s a leo secret: everything I draw/paint looks like me to me, even when it wouldn’t to other people. scary.
My Leo painter friend has this same experience. I think it endearing. One of the most generous people I have ever met.
I know this Leo with a Capricorn rising who often has a shy solemn look on his face.
When we (my classmates and I) ask him questions, he answers with the quietest reply, but the thing is — he couldn’t stop talking! He LOOOVES to talk, usually of colorful subjects.
So what amuses me is, he sits there with a serious frown on his face, saying things like “I’m pretty excited.”
I love this too, including the reports from the field. Here’s one: My double-Leo fiance, who cheated on me big time, was trying to talk me out of leaving him by claiming/threatening: “No one will ever love you the way I do.” He was right 😉
Would it be incredibly Leo of me to say
“Bee–this particular blog is about Leos, not Scorpios.”
“I mean, I don’t think I’m alone when I look at the homeless person or the bum or the psychotic or the drunk or the drug addict or the criminal and see their baby pictures in my mind’s eye. You don’t think they were cute like every other baby?”
*I can identify…I ALWAYS imagine people who are struggling in life as someones baby. It makes me so sad 🙁
That’s nice to hear from Dustin Hoffman. I’ve ignored bums. In my interactions with them, they lie or freak me out and it’s not worth it.
OMGosh, my first husband, a Leo, and I’ve never connected it with his big ol’hairdo. He had one of those 70’s long long bowl cuts and a mustache.
If he has any hair left, I bet he still wears it similarly today.
Why had I never seen that connection before?
He wanted his hair to be prettier than mine, but no, that was not to be – I have Leo MC!! I need to email Elsa some pics. FUNNY stuff here.
I loved this headline that I read on CNN just a few weeks ago:
‘Memoir says that Madonna’s true love is herself’
I don’t think it’s just about leos loving themselves but loving those around them. I LOVE my family and husband more than anything else. They are my mirror (grin. har.har.).
Chris, I also read that Madonna’s brother said that revealing her personal life to the world was like an orgasm. That man is seriously fucked up.
That’s pretty creepy.
“Always have a vivid imagination, for you never know when you might need it.” J.K. Rowling – Leo
More post please! you are leaving a poor old man hungry for more :[
Well Garrett, do you have any Leo quotes you could add? Are you a Leo?
Here Garrett, I’ll help – at least I believe she’s was a Leo.
“Brevity is the soul of lingerie.”
— Dorothy Parker, writer
Zelda Fitzgerald (wife of F. Scott Fitzgerald):
“I don’t want to live — I want to love first, and live incidentally.”
I had no idea the Governator is a Leo! Hahah… No wonder I like him.
“To me, it’s really so simple, that life should be lived on the edge. You have to exercise rebellion. To refuse to tape yourself to the rules, to refuse your own success, to refuse to repeat yourself, to see every day, every year, every idea as a true challenge. Then you will live your life on the tightrope.”
– Philip Petit
Did you guys see Man on Wire? I had this guy pegged as a Leo before I knew his birthday. The embodiment of Leo.
Great documentary, really worth seeing if you haven’t already. When the filmmakers came up with Petit to collect the Oscar for best doc that year Petit took the statue and balanced it on his nose. 🙂
My Engineer is a Leo. He doesn’t think he’s creative but then he comes out with stuff like this.
“Well I was looking at those Altoids amp things, and I thought – you know if you just put this lead over there, and weld this side differently, and add these other components, it would work much better AND it might even be shinier.”
I <3 Leos.
Bill Clinton: “Big things are expected of us, and nothing big ever came of being small.”
Andy Warhol: “Don’t pay attention to what they write about you. Just measure it in inches.” (plus that mane…)
Amelia Earhart: “I want to do it because I want to do it.”
More Arnold Scharzenegger: “I knew I was a winner back in the late 60s. I knew I was destined for great things. People will say that kind of thinking is totally immodest. Modesty is not a word that applies to me in any way – I hope it never will.”
Malcolm Forbes: “Men who never get carried away should be.”
My family is full of Leo’s, once my father did combined birthday party for us. So he got the coffee table (which was a 2 tiered) and placed it on top of the table and made enough food for 100 people (there was only five of us)it looked royally magical. He then told us “Eat gracefully and make sure that you don’t spoil the look of the table I worked hard on it. Eat! it is a party?”. We were 8 and 7 who could not reach the food let alone eat it and it was all store bought food!
Being the only other fire sign, I just laughed and walked off.
“The French have the reputation of being arrogant. I don’t think it’s arrogance but a certain authenticity.”
– Simon Baker.
Famous because I witnessed the “Greatest Rock’n’Roll” band in the world having just brought the house down at Madison Square Garden in NYC playing “Can’t You Here Me Knockin’ ? “,
Mick struts up to the microphone, puts his hands on hips and asks the crowd,
“Are you entertained… ? ARE YOU ENTERTAINED ???
Well all right !!!”
I dated a Leo once. It was hot!
So amazing company of Leo’s quots! I like Woody Harrelson very much. His movies Bunraku and Money Train. But I was grown on Schwarzenegger’s movies, Terminator. His quot here is the best for me.
Moon in Leo here with Capricorn rising – the advice I gave my children when they were deciding what career paths to take in life – “Follow your passion, and find a way to get paid for it.”
“Why do I have to be so smart?” -Leo mercury in her own words
