Reba: (If she's ever been asked to "sex it up") I'm more of the down-home -- I guess, you know, the good-old girl. Being sexy is kind of funny to me. You know, I can get kind of spunky or I can get tough, you know, that kind of tough, sexy look. But sexy? No, I don't think so. Just what you see is what you get on me. And it's never been anything of a sexual nature.
Reba: I've watched many, many decades of entertainers, and I will go watch females and be totally entertained. And when I watch the males, I love their singing, and their lights. But when the girls come on, you better know that they've come up with something new and innovative, and they're going to give you a show.
Reba: Growing up is not being so dead-set on making everybody happy.
Reba: It's very important to surround yourself with people you can learn from.
Reba: (When talking about being in the business for thirty years) The awards were great, the hit songs were great, but the friendships, that was the best.
Reba: Fame is a way of thinking about things; it's all in your mind.
Reba: Learning the hard way never lets you forget.
Reba: I know you've all heard this saying even when we were little ole kids, 'It's better to give than receive.' When I was I kid I didn't believe that for a second. But the older I got I realized that is the greatest lesson we could all learn is to give.
Reba: (Message to the soldiers) To all our men and women in Iraq. Thank you all so much for caring enough for our country's safety to go risk your life for all of us living in the USA. What a sacrifice! I appreciate you doing this more than you know. I applaude you, I salute you and I pray for you daily. I pray that you stay safe and that you realize that no matter if we here at home agree or disagree with us being in this war, we still support you! I ask for God to give you strength and that you return home soon and safe.
Reba: (On her favorite part of touring?) My favorite part is walking out on stage and hearing the audience applauding. That love and acceptance is the best!
Reba: Everything I've done in my career is a result of growing up in rural Oklahoma, because if I hadn't had the training from Mama and Daddy to work hard, to do what I'm told, to take directions, to mind and to do a good job at anything I set out to do, then I wouldn't be where I am today.
Reba: You don't waste your entire life waiting to go back to dust.
Reba: (When asked what is closest to her heart) My relationship with the Lord and then Narvel and Shelby. Then the rest of my family and friends and then me.
Reba: (When asked about the end of her sitcom, Feb. 2007) I know it won't be shopped to another network. And it's very sad that it is over, because it was a very positive show to watch that the whole family could watch together. But we did a wonderful six years, we had a great run and we're very very thankful for that. I hope someday to get to do another sitcom and do television again. I hope that I'm blessed enough to where it's THAT ensemble that we all got along we were like a family. And it's very upsetting to know that you're not going back to work. It wasn't work it was fun. We played. We had the best time and our writers were great. Everybody on the whole team was just super to work with. It was a huge family and I'm going to miss them. We do stay in touch, but we just don't get to go in every morning at 9 o'clock and get to play like we did.

Reba: Finding a good bus driver can be as important as finding a good musician.

Reba: To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone and a funnybone.
Reba: When onstage, I always try to take my audience through as many emotions as I possibly can. I want them to go from laughter to tears, be shocked and surprised and walk out the door with a renewed sense of themselves - and maybe a smile.
