As I look back and connect the dots, all I want to do is go back and hug my scared young self, who took a lot of steps out of impulse not knowing what will happen.

Ron Cephas Jones

I dread handshakes. I’ve got some problems with my hands, and everywhere I go, people want to impress me with their grip. To make it worse, now women are coming up with that firm shake. So I’ll say, ‘Gimme five!’ If a boy wants a handshake, I’ll just give him a hug.

George Foreman

I feel most glamorous in tight-fitting dresses that hug my curves, and the highest heels.

Kimberly Quinn

I have a really hard time watching my sister act in anything but especially anything where it’s a strong emotion. Whether she’s crying or she’s angry or she’s – whatever emotion she’s feeling I actually think that she’s feeling it and I want to hug her and make it all better.

Nicola Formichetti

I loved Roma. The people would hug you and kiss you the first time they met you. It was such a warm culture. But certain people in the press would always be playing games, and those games can be very dangerous.

I need that hug from my mom. She’s the Latin mother that hugs you and says all these sweet things to you in Spanish. It’s just comforting. She also gives me that strength.

I never had the opportunity to run up and hug my mom and tell her ‘I love you,’ and she tells me she loves me and hugs me back. I would want her to come to my fights and support me, but it never would happen.

Patricio Freire

I think Christians and Muslims should hug each other.

Chuck Norris

I think people are surprised that I’m not – I think people come up to talk to me, and they think I’m going to be really morose. And I am, but I do that by myself – no one wants to see that. It’s not really a phoniness; I just kind of keep it to myself. So I think people are surprised when they come up to talk to me and I hug them.

Perfume Genius

I want to make wines that harmonize with food – wines that almost hug your tongue with gentleness.

Robert Mondavi

I wanted a good relationship with my mother, and I realized I had a choice: Either I could spend all my time angry that she didn’t give me the hugs I thought I needed, or I could understand that she hugs differently. It’s not a spread-open-the-arms, ‘come here’ hug. She hugs by sheltering me from her worries.

Chandra Wilson

I wanted to give people that feeling of wanting to hug the TV and just admit that you’re unhappy.

I went to my local Sure Start centre, and they put me on a parenting course. I learned things that might seem simple – that it was important to hug and love your child, and read to them. This might seem obvious, but it wasn’t to me at the time.

Angela Rayner

I will admit, I once launched myself at Julie Garwood for a hug, hoping some of her magic would rub off on me… and I have fangirl crushes on Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Linda Howard, and Kresley Cole, among many others.

I’d been away for about 10 days, and literally the first thing I did, even though it sounds very… it just shows you what a boring person I actually am, because the first thing I did was kiss my wife and hug my kid, then I turned on ‘Fable 2’ just to see how much gold I’d accrued over 10 days.

Peter Molyneux

I’d love to have a big old hug with Richard Simmons.

If I meet somebody and I’m like, ‘Hey, how you doing?’ And you give somebody a hug, or a half-hug, and they stank and it rubs off on me, that is contagious ’cause I’ll be smelling like roses and then it’s like, ‘Wait a minute.’ I’ll change shirts and I’m still funky.

If I see my fans crying, I just want to give them a hug… and tell them I love them.

Austin Mahone

If I want to know how I’m doing at work, I don’t wait for a pat on the back; I ask the people who will give me a clear, objective opinion. When I need a real, arms-wrapped-around-me hug, I go to someone who does that. I stopped getting disappointed by my expectations from non-huggers.

Chandra Wilson

If I’m in the airport, people will come up and just hug me because they feel like they can – and that’s the greatest. They just want to hug because some place, some memory in their lives, I meant something to them.

Lynda Carter

If I’m playing for North Carolina, and Eric Montross goes up and dunks one, I might jump up and hug him like I was his girlfriend. It’s supposed to be that way, in my opinion. Players should be able to express themselves and grow.

Jalen Rose

If Narendra Modi can hug Nawaz Sharif then what is wrong in Hardik Patel meeting me?

Uddhav Thackeray

If you can make it so that I could touch somebody remotely through a wearable because it has haptic feedback – like, I could give a hug and it would touch you or pinch you – that would be killer.

Big Show

I’m interested in helping secure the PC – we need innovation here. It’s not just hug your PC, hate the iPhone. In fact I don’t even hate the iPhone; I think it’s really cool. I just don’t want it to be the center of the ecosystem along with the Web 2.0 apps.

I’m not just going to hug every person that asks to hug me.

In an industry where you don’t always get to see your family as much as you would like, getting to hug your mom after the game is nice.

Gerrit Cole

Interestingly, Laxmi Narayan Tripathi, who is a transgender, was really close to me. She used to tell me that she was ready to change her sexuality for me.

Craig Robinson

It’s all about the director for me; we have to click. It’s a trust thing. I’ll say I’m ready to let down my walls. I’ll cry for you as long as you need. But you’re going to have to hug me afterwards.

Scarlett Moffatt

It’s not necessarily the best situation for me to try to hug someone unless I really know them. And I don’t really know anybody, so.

Naomi Osaka

It’s not that I’m a ‘Let’s hug and be joyful all the time’ boss. Or that I don’t, quote, ‘own my own power.’ I just never want to be that big, swingin’, rule-by-fear person.

Megyn Kelly

It’s something that is very comforting. Just the process of them moving throughout their stages of early childhood. Learning to walk, learning to talk. Reaching out for you for the first hug, telling you they love you.

Jake Arrieta

It’s weird to not know what a family is. Not know what a mother’s love is. And not really know what a hug is or anything.

Oksana Masters

I’ve had girls that kissed me on the cheek. People get so pumped, and so excited, they don’t see you as a person. Which is fair. Sometimes, I don’t see people as people. But at the end of the day, you can’t put your hands on me unless I hug you first.

Iliza Shlesinger

I’ve noticed people in India have developed a habit of hugging around people. I don’t understand it now. I wanted to be hugged when I was young. Now, if someone wants to hug me, I feel only claustrophobic.

Ruskin Bond

I’ve seen fathers criticizing their sons the moment a game’s over. Not my dad. It doesn’t matter if I threw an interception or a Hail Mary, he always says, ‘Good job, son, I’m proud of you.’ Then he shakes my hand and gives me a hug. Every time.

Ben Roethlisberger

I’ve seen my name on marquees and bowed to standing ovations. I’ve also been called a fraud, a mental case, a heretic. People all over the country wait in line to hug me or curse me.

Glennon Doyle Melton

Just because everybody else is engaged in a group hug with Barack Obama doesn’t mean that somebody doesn’t have to tell the truth.

Ken, my husband, just smelled like he belonged to me. I’m not talking about hygiene. I’m talking about when you hug him, he either feels like a member of your tribe or not. It’s their scent.

Erica Jong

Laughing together is as close as you can get to a hug without touching.

Gina Barreca

Let’s set aside our political and ideological differences and take a moment to love our families, hug our children, parents and grandparents and through love and respect, strengthen the bonds that made us the greatest nation on Earth.

James Lankford

Like it or not, I’ve come to appreciate soccer. Any kid can play, which fits with the inclusive agenda of progressive schools. Although the corollary to ‘any kid can play’ is that every kid must play because there is an iron grip to the warm hug of progressive inclusionism.

P. J. O’Rourke

Like you and your woman ain’t gettin’ along and you’re in love. You can’t sleep at nights. Your mind is on her – on whatever. You know, that’s the blues. You can’t hug that money at night. You can’t kiss it.

John Lee Hooker

Many managers prefer to play with wingers that cut inside a lot and don’t hug the touchline.

Tejaswi Madivada

Men greet each other with a sock on the arm, women with a hug, and the hug wears better in the long run.

Edward Hoagland

Most of the people at my headline shows are in their 20s, but it varies a ton: like, I’ve had a six-year-old hug my leg after the show and a 60-year-old shake my hand. It’s cool to see people connecting with the music across different generations.

Ann Hood

My earliest memory is my mom picking me up after I had fallen down, giving me a big hug and reading me ‘Goodnight Moon.’ From that moment, to this one, every single memory I have of my mom is that regardless of what was happening in her life, she was always, always there for me.

Chelsea Clinton

My father was born into a family transport business and, as a kid, it was exciting having big trucks to sit in. It wasn’t a kissy-cuddly environment. It was Mother and Father as opposed to Mummy and Daddy. I would shake my father’s hand and kiss my mother on the cheek rather than hug them, but it was a close family unit.

My happy place is holding my daughter and my husband in the same hug. It really is. I’m getting emotional just thinking about it. I consider it such a privilege, and I know that I’m lucky. I never want to take it for granted.

Melvyn Bragg

Once the bear’s hug has got you, it is apt to be for keeps.

Some black women hug me and walk away. A lot of black men talk about dating white women and how they’ve been there, too. People open up about their racial experiences. I feel like I’m a walking therapy session. It’s quite intense. But it means a lot to people.

Daniel Kaluuya

The best part about playing a mom is that people hug moms. I get hugs all the time. It really makes hard days a lot easier, and easy days are downright joyous.

Kim Rhodes

The day I got to Los Angeles after I got traded, Chase Utley was the first guy I saw. He welcomed me. He gave me a big hug. He was, like, ‘You. You are my brother.’

Carlos Ruiz

The decisions that Ellen made on her show were between her and her producers. I supported her decisions. I was there to hug her when she got home.

Anne Heche

The first thing I do each morning is get out of bed and give my dog, Audrey, a hug. She’s a Jack Russell. I think having an animal is a wonderful thing, particularly dogs. They are great levelers, there’s no nonsense with them, and they just want simple affection.

Donatella Versace

The good part of having six kids is, there’s always one who wants to hug you and say, ‘Daddy, I love you.’

John McEnroe

The greatest thing I could say about my son, and this is what you always worry about with your kids, that they kinda outgrow their Mom and Dad. But for him, when I see him, when he calls me Dad, and he can still hug me, he’s still like my little boy. Even around his friends, he still calls me Dad.

Herm Edwards

The nature of most Covid-19 deaths, in hospital or a care home away from family and friends, has made it worse for the people they leave behind. In the absence of the traditional rites and rituals of funeral and mourning – the opportunity to just share a hug – the process of bereavement has been made even harder to bear.

Luciana Berger

The oddest thing to me has been when people come up to me, and they don’t say anything, and they just put their arms around me and hug and kiss me. They don’t even say hello! They just freak out like they’ve seen a unicorn.

Chris March

The thing is, I’m used to handshakes. Every time someone comes for a hug, I’m very confused. I’m told that I give out the worst hugs, too.

Naomi Osaka

The Welsh have everywhere adopted the Cymric tongue; they hug themselves in the belief that they are pure descendants of the ancient Britons, but in fact, they are rather Silurians than Celts.

Sabine Baring-Gould

The word philosophy sounds high-minded, but it simply means the love of wisdom. If you love something, you don’t just read about it; you hug it, you mess with it, you play with it, you argue with it.

Hugh Jackman

The world is a mess. It seems that life gets harder on a personal level each and every day. Hug and kiss those you love every day. You never know when the tragedies of this world may visit your life.

Kevin Nash

There are all of these people that say, my mommy doesn’t love me enough, my daddy doesn’t hug me enough. There are some people that would want to coddle them somewhere. I want them to shut up and stop whining.

Danny Bonaduce

There are people who have energy that say ‘don’t come near me, don’t get too close.’ There’s people like Adrienne Shelley who have the energy of ‘come over here and give me a hug and if you’re around me you’re going to be happy about it.’

Nathan Fillion

There was a time when rival teams used a shift against me. They would put the second baseman on the shortstop’s side of the bag, move the shortstop into the hole to his right, and have the third baseman hug the foul line. The idea was to build an infield wall against a known right-handed pull hitter.

Harmon Killebrew

There were people I know that got upset that I kissed people; I kissed them for luck and love, that’s all. That’s what my mother did to me. There were people upset that I would embrace or hug someone of another color.

Richard Dawson

There’s something in the German language that makes you feel like you’re getting a hug and a backstab at the same time.


Those small things, like giving a hug to man, I try to avoid it. Because I can see the situation is coming, and I try to prepare. But I remember the first time I did it, I was 16, and I was at the gymnasium, and it was a cosmopolitan thing, an international thing, a modern thing, but I never felt at ease with it at all.

Karl Ove Knausgard

To be honest, I think I’d become a bit selfish with memories of my father. I wanted to hug them close to me.

Jennifer Grant

We all know the wonders of Skype, but there’s nothing like getting a hug from your daughters or taking them to school.

David Harewood

We all need a big cushiony telly show to fall back on. Like the pair of slippers after you unexpectedly went Christmas shopping in your work shoes. Like the cup of tea when your deadlines are making you cry. Like the hug off someone who matters when it’s cold and you wanted to look nice, not warm.

Sarah Millican

We believe that every child has a right to learn without fear, that every parent has a right to hug their beautiful little babies when they come home from school, and that all of us, we have a right to dance at a concert, laugh at the theater, pray at a synagogue, at a church, and at a mosque.

Eric Swalwell

We love to work together. Especially when he stands behind me at the microphone and we hug.

Russi Taylor

Well, no wild animal is really going to appreciate a hug, to be honest.

Leigh-Anne Pinnock

What I treasure the most is people coming up to me in the elevator and saying, ‘You really did a great job’: neighbours who congratulate for a job well done or little fans who hug me and say they want to be like me.

Jackie Shroff

When autumn darkness falls, what we will remember are the small acts of kindness: a cake, a hug, an invitation to talk, and every single rose. These are all expressions of a nation coming together and caring about its people.

Jens Stoltenberg

When I am around people I most admire, I tend to hug the wall.

Ellen Ullman

When I come home, my daughter will run to the door and give me a big hug, and everything that’s happened that day just melts away.

Hugh Jackman

When I left French ‘Vogue,’ New York welcomed me with a big, big hug.

Carine Roitfeld

When I see out-of-shape, overweight people huffing and puffing in the gym, my eyes well up with tears of pride. I want to walk over to them, hug them, and say, ‘Good on you for getting in here. It gets better!’ You know why? Because they’re challenging themselves.

Steven Crowder

When I used to go the E.U. for meetings, I often had a terrible cold to insist that I didn’t get enveloped in a bear hug. All the E.U. commissioners love doing their big hugs.

Amber Rudd

When I was in high school, my thing was to get as close as humanly possible to a girl and just make her have to kiss me! You do the hug that’s too close, where your mouth is close to hers and you kinda feel it out a little bit.

Pete Wentz

When I’m dancing with any woman, I immediately get rid of intimacy barriers. I just give her a big hug and crack on.

Anton du Beke

When I’m in New York, I bike everywhere. I have a couple of bikes stored over at Ed Norton’s. It’s the only way to go. But in Hawaii, I drive. I have a little Volkswagen Bug, from the ‘Drive it? Hug it?’ phase. I run it on biodiesel.

Woody Harrelson

When my son was just a kid, I remember him going for a running race at school and winning and coming to hug me. I realized my heart was absolutely full of joy, there was no space left.

Alex Zanardi

When the Mets were on their run in the 1980s, Gary Carter was often seen hugging somebody. It was easy to joke about that. The best hug of all was with Jesse Orosco at the end of the 1986 World Series.

George Vecsey

When you do a meet and greet, every single girl wants something special from you – an extra little hug or something. And that takes something out of you, almost – like, emotionally, you know.

Jonah Marais

When you look at the ‘Roseannes’ and the ‘Will and Graces’ – when those reboots or sequels or whatever you want to call them are well-executed and have a fresh angle that’s relevant, it’s a big, warm comfort hug to the audience.

Ralph Macchio

Whenever I am at the airport, I always manage to get a hug from the security personnel present at the security check. They always tell me that they love the songs from ‘Border,’ and its amazing that even 20 years later, the songs continue to hold the same meaning and impact they had when the film was released.

Anu Malik

Where I live if someone gives you a hug it’s from the heart.

Steve Irwin

With age, you get to a place where you don’t want to knock people out. You just want to give people a hug.

Vin Diesel

With my son, falling off his bike is usually what makes him upset, so a hug goes a long way. But girls are more complicated; my daughter will get bummed out because her friend hurt her feelings. In that case, we’ll talk about it. I’ll tell her that she’s a great friend, and that she needs to talk to her friends about it.

Summer Sanders

Working with children with autism is difficult, tiring work, especially since the social rewards – the smile, the eye-contact, the hug, the thank you – that make most of us tick are few and far between. I’ve never tried such an endeavor; I’m in no position to judge anyone.

Zeynep Tufekci

You can’t get AIDS from a hug or a handshake or a meal with a friend.

Magic Johnson

You have to be so willing to hug and say ‘I love you’ so much. And you have to talk to every single person individually – which I love doing, but it’s actually, like, really emotionally tiring.

Jonah Marais

You know, food is such – it’s a hug for people.

Rachael Ray

You realise that there’s nothing more endearing than people who are desperately trying to be liked or trying to be the hero, you know? Who also probably just need a hug or want to impress their dad?

Taika Waititi

You should never have to say hello or goodbye. Even at work sometimes, and I know this is very unpopular, is that if I’m going to work every single day, I don’t think you should have to hug people hello every single day when you come to work. I saw you Monday!

Mindy Kaling

You shouldn’t feel guilty about taking time for yourself. Every so often, everyone needs to give themselves a big ol’ bear hug and treat themselves to some TLC.

Sean Covey

Zara right now has incredible jeans. I’m obsessed. They have these jeans that have those ridges on the knees. I swear they have a little bit of stretch to them, so they hug everything in the right places. They’ve got great boyfriend jeans that are torn up, and you can cuff them.

Adrienne Bailon

In conclusion, hug quotes are a great way to express your love and appreciation for someone special in your life. They can be used to show your gratitude, to offer comfort and support, and to remind someone of your affection. Hug quotes can also be used to send a message of hope and inspiration to someone in need. Whether you choose to use a hug quote on a card, in a text message, or simply as a reminder to yourself, these quotes can be a powerful way to show someone how much you care.
