Quotes

Ellen DeGeneres: I am fascinated by animals. All of nature fascinates me, all of nature. You ever watch ants? Do you have that kind of time like me? It's interesting because if you watch them, they're always in that one long single-file line. If you notice that. They're always in that one single-file line. They don't have to be. There aren't little lanes painted for them that they're forced to stay in. They can go anywhere on the ground that they want to go, but they stay in that line. I think... Don't you ...

Ellen DeGeneres - "Seeking the Silence"
19 March 2014 | by dongquan110296See all my reviews

This performance marks 3 years after the "come-out" of Ellen Degeneres. FYI, Ellen was raised in a strict Christian Science environment, and although she no longer goes to that church, she believes in God and her belief is evidently shown in this performance. As she always has been funny and witty style, Ellen also shows her love and passion for people and animals. My favorite part is how Ellen chooses to end the show with such impressive story of her meeting with God. It makes us laugh for the moment, but then when we find "the silence", we can see how incredible and sophisticated this woman is. If you are a fan of Ellen DeGeneres, you cannot miss this.
