Sophia Bush Quotes
Sophia Bush: (On which historical figure she most identifies with) Wow, that’s difficult. I can’t say that I identify with him, but I have a wonderful photo of Gandhi and his family, by Margaret Bourke-White, which I keep close everywhere I go. I look at it every day and remind myself to be inspired by the things he achieved and the way he did them.

Sophia Bush: I’m a bit of a worrier, to an extreme. I’ll crack a joke, then worry if I’ve offended someone—even when they’re laughing. I have a guilt complex, always worrying.
