After I did nine years of a television series, I didn't want to do anything really that involved going to a set and being in front of a camera for quite a while. And when I did start to want to do things, I wanted to focus more on film.
 

At the beginning Scully was much more sceptical than she is now.
 

Be of service. Whether you make yourself available to a friend or co-worker, or you make time every month to do volunteer work, there is nothing that harvests more of a feeling of empowerment than being of service to someone in need.
 

I am more spontaneous than my character.
 

I believe people are in our lives for a reason. We're here to learn from each other.
 

I can goof around with other people right up to when we shoot.
 

I didn't pay as much attention in school as I would have liked to.
[Attention]
 

I have a real problem with stillness. With just stopping and being quiet.
 

I have a tendency to go through my life at full speed and as a one-man band, and so I don't generally stop and take in other people enough to develop many relationships. I'm starting to regret that a bit. I want to change it.
 

I hope everyone that is reading this is having a really good day. And if you are not, just know that in every new minute that passes you have an opportunity to change that.
 

I mean the whole thing about meditation and yoga is about connecting to the higher part of yourself, and then seeing that every living thing is connected in some way.
 

I think she definitely has. I think, um, her and Mulder's relationship has become more equal. And, I think she has become stronger and more independent over the seasons.

I truly believe that we can overcome any hurdle that lies before us and create the life we want to live. I have seen it happen time and time again.
 

I was a daydreamer, and there is a lot of history and geography and science I missed out on because I was in my head. And I regret that.
 

I was a good liar as a child.
 

In my case, I was born to parents who were very young, and I don't think they were entirely ready to have a child. My dad was going to college and working two or three jobs at the same time, and my mum was working and going to school.
 

In time, she learned to develop her own opinion of the people that she worked for, and she got stronger. Think she's now much stronger. In the beginning she wanted to believe she was strong but sometimes she faltered.
 

It's so funny, because right now I'm very tired and my brains a little dead, I tend to get very focused and serious. So, I'm probably coming off a lot more like Scully right now.
 

Just remember, you can do anything you set your mind to, but it takes action, perseverance, and facing your fears.
