Debra Messing Quotes:
  • About her husband Daniel: "He's the best human being I know, he makes me a better person every day. I'm never happier than when I'm with him."
  • On winning her first Emmy: "I can't imagine it being more sweet. You just hope that you will get the opportunity to do what you love and pay your bills, and that is being a success as an actor. The accolades - this is otherworldly. I have never allowed myself the ability to dream this far."
