Top 12 Most Inspiring Leonardo DiCaprio Quotes

Unlike many former child actors who tend to crash and burn (or fade into oblivion) in their teen years and beyond, 42-year-old Academy Award winner Leonardo DiCaprio has boasted a steady resume of film hits for nearly two decades, from his heartbreaking turn in 1993's What's Eating Gilbert Grape? to a starring role in box-office bombshell Titanic

In addition to his impressive film career, Leo has used his Hollywood capital on a number of philanthropic ventures. He's become one of the world's top climate change champions and advocates for more stringent restrictions on carbon emissions every chance he gets.

In fact, he gave specific mention to the environment in his Oscar acceptance speech for his work in The Revenant, imploring the audience to "work collectively together and stop procrastinating" when dealing with climate change. These values are mirrored in his daily life; he drives only battery-powered vehicles and lives in a solar-powered home.

Below are 12 of the most inspiring Leonardo DiCaprio that should encourage you to work on what makes you happy.
