Children rarely want to know who their parents were before they were parents, and when age finally stirs their curiosity, there is no parent left to tell them.

Russell Baker

The really frightening thing about middle age is the knowledge that you’ll grow out of it.

Doris Day

To me – old age is always ten years older than I am.

John Burroughs

I always thought that I might retire from any form of sexuality by the age of 40 and just become a dignified older person.

Jarvis Cocker

In the television age, the key distinction is between the candidate who can speak poetry and the one who can only speak prose.

Richard M. Nixon

You need some insecurity if you’re an actor. It keeps the pot boiling. I haven’t yet started to think about retiring. I was shocked when I heard about Paul Newman retiring at age 82. Most actors just fade away like old soldiers.

Al Pacino

Here comes 40. I’m feeling my age and I’ve ordered the Ferrari. I’m going to get the whole mid-life crisis package.

Keanu Reeves

No lying knight or lying priest ever prospered in any age, but especially not in the dark ones. Men prospered then only in following an openly declared purpose, and preaching candidly beloved and trusted creeds.

John Ruskin

We’re still living with the old paradigm of age as an arch. That’s the old metaphor: You’re born, you peak at midlife and decline into decrepitude.

Jane Fonda

I can’t get my knickers in a twist about my age and ageing in an industry that caters to the ids of 14-year-olds.

Vera Farmiga

The stars shall fade away, the sun himself Grow dim with age, and nature sink in years, But thou shalt flourish in immortal youth, Unhurt amidst the wars of elements, The wrecks of matter, and the crush of worlds.

Joseph Addison

I just yesterday returned from a trip where I photographed a woman with two children whom I photographed first when she was the age of the older of the two children.

Jock Sturges

To separate children from others of similar age and qualifications solely because of their race generates a feeling of inferiority as to their status in the community that may affect their hearts and minds in a way unlikely ever to be undone.

Earl Warren

Your 40s are a major trough. About the age of 50, feelings of satisfaction begin to rebound and keep rising into your 50s, 60s and 70s, with health being a major factor.

Jane Pauley

Most poetry in the modern age has retreated to the private sphere, turning its back on the political realm.

Terry Eagleton

I get all fired up about aging in America.

Willard Scott

Men are like wine – some turn to vinegar, but the best improve with age.

Pope John XXIII

I’ve an enormous respect for my mother who at the age of 39 raised three children, and I grew up with my grandmother in the household. And so it was a really strong household of women – my poor brother! It was great growing up with so many generations of women.

Cate Blanchett

Youth cannot know how age thinks and feels. But old men are guilty if they forget what it was to be young.

J. K. Rowling

Confidence is something you’re born with. I know I had loads of it even at the age of 15.

Hedy Lamarr

I love my kids, and the moments I have with them, and it’s kind of weird, it’s such an age old cliche, but the way that my sons, the way they make me feel when I look at them, the way they say things, no one else would probably react to them, but it’s a special thing for me.

Michael Rapaport

There is an anti-aging possibility, but it has to come from within.

Susan Anton

Not just in commerce but in the world of ideas too our age is putting on a veritable clearance sale. Everything can be had so dirt cheap that one begins to wonder whether in the end anyone will want to make a bid.

Soren Kierkegaard

I’m at the age where food has taken the place of sex in my life. In fact, I’ve just had a mirror put over my kitchen table.

Rodney Dangerfield

I never played much golf as a kid. I caddied quite a bit but never got serious into golf until about age 15.

Lee Trevino

It is not the young people that degenerate they are not spoiled till those of mature age are already sunk into corruption.

Charles de Montesquieu

At the age when Bengali youth almost inevitably writes poetry, I was listening to European classical music.

Satyajit Ray

No matter what age you are, or what your circumstances might be, you are special, and you still have something unique to offer. Your life, because of who you are, has meaning.

Barbara de Angelis

The lovely thing about being forty is that you can appreciate twenty-five-year-old men more.

Colleen McCullough

But I think it’s a little different in Europe, because 40 is really the best age for a woman. That’s when we hit our peak and become this ripe fruit.

Juliette Binoche

Just as we reject racism, sexism, ageism, and heterosexism, we reject speciesism. The species of a sentient being is no more reason to deny the protection of this basic right than race, sex, age, or sexual orientation is a reason to deny membership in the human moral community to other humans.

Gary L. Francione

As the age of television progresses the Reagans will be the rule, not the exception. To be perfect for television is all a President has to be these days.

Gore Vidal

From an early age I didn’t buy into the value systems of working hard in a nine-to-five job. I thought creativity, friendship and loyalty and pushing the boundaries of what was acceptable was much more interesting.

Adam Clayton

At my age, I don’t think anyone is untouched by cancer.

Bryan Cranston

None are so old as those who have outlived enthusiasm.

Henry David Thoreau

A woman my age is not supposed to be attractive or sexually appealing. I just get kinda tired of that.

Kathleen Turner

Life expectancy in many parts of Africa can be something around the age of thirty five to thirty eight. I mean you’re very fortunate if you live to that age. In fact when I went to Uganda for the first time one of the things that occurred to me was that I saw very few elderly people.

Annie Lennox

Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen.

Albert Einstein

I worked hard in gymnastics since the time I was six years old until I retired at 23 years of age.

Nadia Comaneci

It is with an old love as it is with old age a man lives to all the miseries, but is dead to all the pleasures.

Francois de La Rochefoucauld

I was a mixture of being incredibly old for my age and incredibly backwards. I was born quite old, but then I stopped growing. I lived with my mum and dad till I was 30.

Helena Bonham Carter

I feel more mature than most people my age.

Leighton Meester

I think I don’t regret a single ‘excess’ of my responsive youth – I only regret, in my chilled age, certain occasions and possibilities I didn’t embrace.

Henry James

English people don’t have very good diction. In France you have to pronounce very particularly and clearly, and learning French at an early age helped me enormously.

Vivien Leigh

No man was ever so completely skilled in the conduct of life, as not to receive new information from age and experience.

Jonathan Swift

Old age is a special problem for me because I’ve never been able to shed the mental image I have of myself – a lad of about 19.

E. B. White

Another belief of mine that everyone else my age is an adult, whereas I am merely in disguise.

Margaret Atwood

There’s a vintage which comes with age and experience.

Jon Bon Jovi

I am a grandmother now, and that means age is creeping on, creeping on.

Lillie Langtry

To be happy, we must be true to nature and carry our age along with us.

William Hazlitt

Age is only a number, a cipher for the records. A man can’t retire his experience. He must use it. Experience achieves more with less energy and time.

Bernard Baruch

Interest is the spur of the people, but glory that of great souls. Invention is the talent of youth, and judgment of age.

Jonathan Swift

A woman telling her true age is like a buyer confiding his final price to an Armenian rug dealer.

Mignon McLaughlin

Legend: A lie that has attained the dignity of age.

H. L. Mencken

Genius is present in every age, but the men carrying it within them remain benumbed unless extraordinary events occur to heat up and melt the mass so that it flows forth.

Denis Diderot

Middle age is when your age starts to show around your middle.

Bob Hope

I don’t look my age, I don’t feel my age and I don’t act my age. To me age is just a number.

Joan Collins

Each age, it is found, must write its own books or rather, each generation for the next succeeding.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Being successful at a very young age gave me the confidence and the capability to try out other things.

Joshua Lederberg

Every great architect is – necessarily – a great poet. He must be a great original interpreter of his time, his day, his age.

Frank Lloyd Wright

I started writing when I had three kids under the age of 4. I used to write every ten minutes I got to sit in front of a computer. Now, when I have more time, I function the same way: if it’s writing time, I write.

Jodi Picoult

I saw how many people were poor and how many kids my age went to school hungry in the morning, which I don’t think most of my contemporaries in racially segregated schools in the South thought very much about at the time.

Charles Kuralt

The age in which we live, this non-stop distraction, is making it more impossible for the young generation to ever have the curiosity or discipline… because you need to be alone to find out anything.

Vivienne Westwood

The kids are old enough now – I just want to let them be kids. I don’t want to comment on them too much. They’re at an age where I just want to let them be kids.

Eminem

As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world – that is the myth of the atomic age – as in being able to remake ourselves.

Mahatma Gandhi

Brain power improves by brain use, just as our bodily strength grows with exercise. And there is no doubt that a large proportion of the female population, from school days to late middle age, now have very complicated lives indeed.

A. N. Wilson

I’m 36 and if I met a woman of my own age and married her, I’d also be marrying her former life, her past. It might be OK for some people – I don’t want to judge it or anything – but it’s not for me. It would destroy my creativity.

Henry Rollins

I do think I feel it but you don’t think you are cause at a certain time you are no age but you don’t think you are anything. You feel the life you have lived. I feel that. It’s been a long fifty years.

Bob Geldof

I can feel the 60S looming. In my profession, I’ve just moved along with my age. By thinking in decades, rather than whether someone’s 42 or 47, you can give yourself a whole 10 years to turn yourself around in.

Francesca Annis

Maybe I’ll be a feminist in my old age.

Bjork

One problem with age is that patience begins to ebb.

Carl Hiaasen

Many women my age have known the experience of giving up crucial parts of themselves to please the man they love.

Joyce Maynard

Age should not have its face lifted, but it should rather teach the world to admire wrinkles as the etchings of experience and the firm line of character.

Clarence Day

Middle Age is that perplexing time of life when we hear two voices calling us, one saying, ‘Why not?’ and the other, ‘Why bother?’

Sydney J. Harris

There are a lot of downsides to being male. We age faster and die younger. But give us this: we’re lifetime baby-making machines. Women’s reproductive abilities start to wane when they’re as young as 35. Men? We’re good to go pretty much till we’re dead.

Jeffrey Kluger

Age is a case of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it don’t matter.

Satchel Paige

In a spiritually sensitive culture, then, it might well be that age is something to be admired or envied.

Rowan D. Williams

One crowded hour of glorious life is worth an age without a name.

Walter Scott

‘Bombing Afghanistan back into the Stone Age’ was quite a favourite headline for some wobbly liberals. The slogan does all the work. But an instant’s thought shows that Afghanistan is being, if anything, bombed out of the Stone Age.

Christopher Hitchens

You can have a spiritual awakening and discover a new side of you at any age. And best of all, love can happen at any age. Life can just start to get exciting when you’re in your 40s and 50s. You have to believe that.

Salma Hayek

A diplomat is a man who always remembers a woman’s birthday but never remembers her age.

Robert Frost

Try to keep your soul young and quivering right up to old age.

George Sand

There’s no way to approach anything in an objective way. We’re completely subjective our view of the world is completely controlled by who we are as human beings, as men or women, by our age, our history, our profession, by the state of the world.

Charlie Kaufman

I think the biggest disease the world suffers from in this day and age is the disease of people feeling unloved. I know that I can give love for a minute, for half an hour, for a day, for a month, but I can give. I am very happy to do that, I want to do that.

Princess Diana

It begins and ends with money. It’s absurd in this day and age when we need so much money for education, health, for people, that a $100 million dollars can be spent on a film. It’s obscene.

Kathleen Turner

To keep the heart unwrinkled, to be hopeful, kindly, cheerful, reverent – that is to triumph over old age.

Thomas Bailey Aldrich

When superstition is allowed to perform the task of old age in dulling the human temperament, we can say goodbye to all excellence in poetry, in painting, and in music.

Denis Diderot

Instead of being presented with stereotypes by age, sex, color, class, or religion, children must have the opportunity to learn that within each range, some people are loathsome and some are delightful.

Margaret Mead

Look, demanding somebody do anything in this day and age is not going to fly.

John Mayer

I will never be an old man. To me, old age is always 15 years older than I am.

Francis Bacon

Craziest thing I’ve done for love is getting married. I think it’s crazy. I think it’s crazy, crazy, crazy. I’m never going to say I wouldn’t do it again but I have to make sure it’s love and not settling for the ‘I have to do this by a certain age,’ which is kind of what I did.

Jenny McCarthy

Those who love deeply never grow old they may die of old age, but they die young.

Dorothy Canfield Fisher

A man growing old becomes a child again.

Sophocles

People pay to see movies with women looking beautiful, but I think there will be a place for me to play women looking my own age.

Debra Winger

I think when the full horror of being fifty hits you, you should stay home and have a good cry.

Josh Billings

A bad manner spoils everything, even reason and justice a good one supplies everything, gilds a No, sweetens a truth, and adds a touch of beauty to old age itself.

Baltasar Gracian

Morality comes with the sad wisdom of age, when the sense of curiosity has withered.

Graham Greene

I’ve been going through photos of my mother, looking back on her life and trying to put it into context. Very few people age gracefully enough to be photographed through their aging.

Jamie Lee Curtis

Age is a very high price to pay for maturity.

Tom Stoppard

Science cannot tell theology how to construct a doctrine of creation, but you can’t construct a doctrine of creation without taking account of the age of the universe and the evolutionary character of cosmic history.

John Polkinghorne

Rereading A.J. Liebling carries me happily back to an age when all good journalists knew they had plenty to be modest about, and were.

Russell Baker

Well, I’m in my 60s now. I finally look it, I think. People until I was 60 would always say they thought I looked younger, which I think, without flattering myself, I did, but I think I certainly have, as George Orwell says people do after a certain age, the face they deserve.

Christopher Hitchens

As I approve of a youth that has something of the old man in him, so I am no less pleased with an old man that has something of the youth. He that follows this rule may be old in body, but can never be so in mind.

Marcus Tullius Cicero

I hope to have one more boxing match at the age of 55. Given that demographic at the age of 55 to 65, you’ve got to make a statement with your life. Otherwise, you are just existing.

George Foreman

Age is something that doesn’t matter, unless you are a cheese.

Luis Bunuel

Age for me is just a number.

Haile Gebrselassie

You can construct the character of a man and his age not only from what he does and says, but from what he fails to say and do.

Norman Douglas

My acting career began at age three and my parents got me into it. I was in a McDonald’s commercial.

Corey Feldman

Inflation is when you pay fifteen dollars for the ten-dollar haircut you used to get for five dollars when you had hair.

Sam Ewing

Probably the happiest period in life most frequently is in middle age, when the eager passions of youth are cooled, and the infirmities of age not yet begun as we see that the shadows, which are at morning and evening so large, almost entirely disappear at midday.

Eleanor Roosevelt

People who refuse to rest honorably on their laurels when they reach retirement age seem very admirable to me.

Helen Hayes

Canada has a passive-aggressive culture, with a lot of sarcasm and righteousness. That went with my weird messianic complex. The ego is a fascinating monster. I was taught from a young age that I had to serve, so that turned into me thinking I had to save the planet.

Alanis Morissette

Old age is a shipwreck.

Charles de Gaulle

The whole business of marshaling one’s energies becomes more and more important as one grows older.

Hume Cronyn

The greatest writers of this age… are aware of the mystery of our existence.

J. B. Priestley

Oh rage! Oh despair! Oh age, my enemy!

Pierre Corneille

No Congress ever has seen fit to amend the Constitution to address any issue related to marriage. No Constitutional Amendment was needed to ban polygamy or bigamy, nor was a Constitutional Amendment needed to set a uniform age of majority to ban child marriages.

Judy Biggert

Middle age went by while I was mourning for my lost youth.

Mason Cooley

People are so busy dreaming the American Dream, fantasizing about what they could be or have a right to be, that they’re all asleep at the switch. Consequently we are living in the Age of Human Error.

Florence King

In passing, we should note this curious mark of our own age: the only absolute allowed is the absolute insistence that there is no absolute.

Francis Schaeffer

We are living in the machine age. For the first time in history the comedian has been compelled to supply himself with jokes and comedy material to compete with the machine. Whether he knows it or not, the comedian is on a treadmill to oblivion.

Fred Allen

My notion of a wife at 40 is that a man should be able to change her, like a bank note, for two 20s.

Warren Beatty

Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.

Henry Ford

It were a real increase of human happiness, could all young men from the age of nineteen be covered under barrels, or rendered otherwise invisible and there left to follow their lawful studies and callings, till they emerged, sadder and wiser, at the age of twenty-five.

Thomas Carlyle

People until I was 60 would always say they thought I looked younger, which I think, without flattering myself, I did, but I think I certainly have, as George Orwell says people do after a certain age, the face they deserve.

Christopher Hitchens

Whatever poet, orator or sage may say of it, old age is still old age.

Sinclair Lewis

It is the spirit of the age to believe that any fact, no matter how suspect, is superior to any imaginative exercise, no matter how true.

Gore Vidal

I am rediscovering the whole sexual dimension of life at the age of 86, really. And that also means discovering the feminine. So the whole of this dimension, which I had been seeking for a very long time, is now sort of opening itself up to me.

Bede Griffiths

The 19th century was the age of Individualism the 20th and 21st are the ages of Socialism.

Francis Parker Yockey

Discrimination due to age is one of the great tragedies of modern life. The desire to work and be useful is what makes life worth living, and to be told your efforts are not needed because you are the wrong age is a crime.

Johnny Ball

I had the good fortune to be able to right an injustice that I thought was being heaped on young people by lowering the voting age, where you had young people that were old enough to die in Vietnam but not old enough to vote for their members of Congress that sent them there.

Birch Bayh

I don’t feel old. I don’t feel anything till noon. That’s when it’s time for my nap.

Bob Hope

A tart temper never mellows with age, and a sharp tongue is the only edged tool that grows keener with constant use.

Washington Irving

Almost all of your life is lived by the seat of your pants, one unexpected event crashing into another, with no pattern or reason, and then you finally reach a point, around my age, where you spend more time than ever looking back. Why did this happen? Look where that led? You see the shape of things.

Ron Perlman

In 1981, at age 31, I was voted the best player in basketball, and the most valuable player in the league.

Julius Erving

Old age has its pleasures, which, though different, are not less than the pleasures of youth.

W. Somerset Maugham

I think the sport of wrestling, which I became involved with at the age of 14… I competed until I was 34, kind of old for a contact sport. I coached the sport until I was 47. I think the discipline of wrestling has given me the discipline I have to write.

John Irving

The mind that is wise mourns less for what age takes away than what it leaves behind.

William Wordsworth

I was very successful from a very early age, and I want to keep it.

John Mayer

Maybe it is something to do with age, but I have become fonder of poetry than of prose.

Aung San Suu Kyi

You know you’re getting old when all the names in your black book have M. D. after them.

Harrison Ford

In my youth I stressed freedom, and in my old age I stress order. I have made the great discovery that liberty is a product of order.

Will Durant

There’s a small club of women who are willing to age.

Debra Winger

After you’re older, two things are possibly more important than any others: health and money.

Helen Gurley Brown

A sense of freedom is something that, happily, comes with age and life experience.

Diane Keaton

I think being able to age gracefully is a very important talent. It is too late for me.

Clint Eastwood

With age, you see people fail more. You see yourself fail more. How do you keep that fearlessness of a kid? You keep going. Luckily, I’m not afraid to make a fool of myself.

Hugh Jackman

In the information age, you don’t teach philosophy as they did after feudalism. You perform it. If Aristotle were alive today he’d have a talk show.

Timothy Leary

You get to a certain age and you can’t judge yourself on your dad or your parents.

Ellie Goulding

Age is not a particularly interesting subject. Anyone can get old. All you have to do is live long enough.

Don Marquis

It was Julie Burchill who decreed that, beyond a certain age, a man should not be seen in a leather jacket.

Arthur Smith

When a noble life has prepared old age, it is not decline that it reveals, but the first days of immortality.

Muriel Spark

I could always sing, from a really young age, but my voice was really weird. I used to make my mum turn up the radio every day in our house. She was well into music so I got that from her.

Ellie Goulding

I never felt totally, 100%, patriotically English… I’d seen a lot of the world by an early age – sort of spent a lot of time traveling around Lebanon and I’d seen Babylon, and Damascus, and all sorts of places in the Middle East by the time I was ten. Then we’d return to Ruslip in West London… Done a fair bit of traveling really.

Andy Serkis

Memory in youth is active and easily impressible in old age it is comparatively callous to new impressions, but still retains vividly those of earlier years.

Charlotte Bronte

We were making the first step out of the age of chemistry and physics, and into the age of biology.

Jeremy Rifkin

Living in an age of advertisement, we are perpetually disillusioned. The perfect life is spread before us every day, but it changes and withers at a touch.

J. B. Priestley

I wear clothes that most people in the Midwest would probably deem inappropriate at my age. And I rock a bikini all summer long. I know that it’s not normal, but I just don’t care. I live once.

Liz Phair

Regardless of age, regardless of position, regardless of the business we happen to be in, all of us need to understand the importance of branding. We are CEOs of our own companies: Me, Inc. To be in business today, our most important job is to be head marketer for the brand called You.

Tom Peters

Men of age object too much, consult too long, adventure too little, repent too soon, and seldom drive business home to the full period, but content themselves with a mediocrity of success.

Dale Carnegie

We are always the same age inside.

Gertrude Stein

This is the curse of our age, even the strangest aberrations are no cure for boredom.

Stendhal

I knew at an early age I wanted to act. Acting was always easy for me. I don’t believe in predestination, but I do believe that once you get where ever it is you are going, that is where you were going to be.

Morgan Freeman

There’s a very small group of elite actresses who are my age, who people want to work with. It’s not easy to get a good job with good actors.

Amanda Peet

The reason for the slow progress of the world seems to lie in a single fact. Every man is born under the yoke, and grows up beneath the oppressions of his age.

John Jay Chapman

Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.

Albert Einstein

I feel like women are asked their age more than men.

Kristen Wiig

It is old age, rather than death, that is to be contrasted with life. Old age is life’s parody, whereas death transforms life into a destiny: in a way it preserves it by giving it the absolute dimension. Death does away with time.

Simone de Beauvoir

You can fake your age or mask it, but the passion that moves the characters has to be real.

Victoria Abril

I’m never overawed by a situation and I think that’s because I’ve always looked several years older than I am. So because people were treating me like I was 40 when I was 29, I’ve always felt in control of a situation. People used to say, when you’re 32, you’ll look 32. I’m still waiting for that moment, where my age catches up with my appearance.

Chris O’Dowd

My view is that at a younger age your optimism is more and you have more imagination etc. You have less bias.

Abdul Kalam

With the song ‘This Christmas’ I wanted to do something that was kind of different. I mean, Donny Hathaway is an amazing artist. So I wanted to bring my flavor to the song so when people over the age of 45 or 50 hear it they’ll be like ‘OK, he did his thing with that record.’ It’s like I can appeal to everybody and not just a younger demographic.

Chris Brown

Age is the first limitation on roles that I’ve ever had to encounter, and I hit that awhile ago.

Jack Nicholson

Everyone takes pause at 40. It’s the age you have to assess everything in your life. It’s the fictitious marker that’s always coming up when you’re young. The world really does look at you to kind of have it together by 40, and be successful by 40. Whatever success means.

Paul Feig

This is the first convention of the space age – where a candidate can promise the moon and mean it.

David Brinkley

Filth and old age, I’m sure you will agree, are powerful wardens upon chastity.

Geoffrey Chaucer

I think that a man should not live beyond the age when he begins to deteriorate, when the flame that lighted the brightest moment of his life has weakened.

Fidel Castro

Pretend to be dumb, that’s the only way to reach old age.

Friedrich Durrenmatt

The secret of long life is double careers. One to about age sixty, then another for the next thirty years.

David Ogilvy

Age wrinkles the body. Quitting wrinkles the soul.

Douglas MacArthur

I began to understand my sensations, to know what I wanted, at around the age of forty – but only vaguely.

Camille Pissarro

Middle age is the time when a man is always thinking that in a week or two he will feel as good as ever.

Don Marquis

Temper never mellows with age, and a sharp tongue is the only edged tool that grows keener with constant use.

Washington Irving

I am happy being able to play roles with people my age because once you do something really mature there is no turning back.

Lindsay Lohan

Right up until the time I retired at age 37, I felt like there were still things that I could do better.

Julius Erving

I’ve been very competitive by nature from a young age, whether it was eating a bowl of pasta faster than somebody else, or always wanting to be the first one in line.

Maria Sharapova

It is folly for an eminent man to think of escaping censure, and a weakness to be affected with it. All the illustrious persons of antiquity, and indeed of every age in the world, have passed through this fiery persecution.

Joseph Addison

At the age of six I wanted to be a cook. At seven I wanted to be Napoleon. And my ambition has been growing steadily ever since.

Salvador Dali

It’s sad, actually, because my anxiety keeps me from enjoying things as much as I should at this age.

Amanda Seyfried

There’s also some element of coming of age during the Reagan administration, which everybody has painted as some glorious time in America, but I remember as being a very, very dark time. There was apocalypse in the air the punk rock movement made sense.

John Cusack

Old minds are like old horses you must exercise them if you wish to keep them in working order.

John Adams

Error is acceptable as long as we are young but one must not drag it along into old age.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

But look, I was born in 1956, the peak year for births in US history. I think I’m very representative of many of the thought processes my generation have been through and, by and large, people of my age have had their imprint planted on the consciousness of western society for a long time.

Tom Hanks

The reason for the sadness of this modern age and the men who live in it is that it looks for the truth in everything and finds it.

Edmond de Goncourt

We’re saying no changes for Medicare for people above the age of 55. And in order to keep the promise to current seniors who’ve already retired and organized their lives around this program, you have to reform it for the next generation.

Paul Ryan

Better pass boldly into that other world, in the full glory of some passion, than fade and wither dismally with age.

James Joyce

Old age is far more than white hair, wrinkles, the feeling that it is too late and the game finished, that the stage belongs to the rising generations. The true evil is not the weakening of the body, but the indifference of the soul.

Andre Maurois

We are all geniuses up to the age of ten.

Aldous Huxley

I like to be alone so I can write. But focus can hurt you. I don’t want to be some stress casualty in early middle age.

James Ellroy

There are no college courses to build up self-esteem or high school or elementary school. If you don’t get those values at a early age, nurtured in your home, you don’t get them.

T. D. Jakes

Like many women my age, I am 28 years old.

Mary Schmich

Perfection of means and confusion of ends seem to characterize our age.

Albert Einstein

We accumulate our opinions at an age when our understanding is at its weakest.

Georg C. Lichtenberg

I think that everyone at any age should ask themselves, ‘where do I want to be today, where do I want to be tomorrow, and where do I want to be in a hundred years?’ We all have clear answers to those questions. We only have so much time. It’s a real shame if we don’t spend our lives trying to do that.

Jack Antonoff

You know what makes me feel old? When I see girls who are 20-something, or the new crop of actresses, and think, Aren’t we kind of the same age?

Jennifer Aniston

At its best our age is an age of searchers and discoverers, and at its worst, an age that has domesticated despair and learned to live with it happily.

Flannery O’Connor

I would like to see more airplay for all artists, no matter what age. I think there’s a lot of money being spent toward the young guys, but a lot of the older guys are the ones who blazed the trail for those young guys.

Willie Nelson

I’m very pleased to be here. Let’s face it, at my age I’m very pleased to be anywhere.

George Burns

Every age yearns for a more beautiful world. The deeper the desperation and the depression about the confusing present, the more intense that yearning.

Johan Huizinga

Staid middle age loves the hurricane passions of opera.

Mason Cooley

You get to a certain age and you just want to prove that you can still rock – that you’ve still got it.

Jarvis Cocker

I’ve always felt that sexuality is a really slippery thing. In this day and age, it tends to get categorized and labeled, and I think labels are for food. Canned food.

Michael Stipe

Each moment of a happy lover’s hour is worth an age of dull and common life.

Aphra Behn

Women lie about their age men lie about their income.

William Feather

A woman has the age she deserves.

Coco Chanel

But an old age serene and bright, and lovely as a Lapland night, shall lead thee to thy grave.

William Wordsworth

At my age, no one is married, no one has kids, no one has a career.

Lena Dunham

I was always obsessed with being famous. I had Marilyn Monroe paper dolls as a child, and I was always obsessed with her. I’ve just been really driven in that direction, and none of my friends were. So, I don’t know what put that bug in me at a young age.

Holly Madison

Every age can be enchanting, provided you live within it.

Brigitte Bardot

High expectations weren’t nurtured in my neck of nowhere back then – children weren’t fawned over from an early age as ‘gifted’ and groomed for a prizewinning future self-esteem was considered something you had to pick from the garden yourself.

James Wolcott

This is what I asked for, and in this day and age that’s what actually goes on. But what hurts me the most is that I work just as hard as any other actress around my age, like Scarlett Johansson, but I just don’t get the opportunities that they get because people are so distracted by the mess that I created in my life.

Lindsay Lohan

In fact, my courage and my bravery at a young age was the thing I was bullied for, a kind of ‘Who do you think you are?’

Lady Gaga

My view is pensioners don’t have the one option that people of working age have. They can’t really increase their income, because they are no longer able to work.

Iain Duncan Smith

The freethinking of one age is the common sense of the next.

Matthew Arnold

Peace is the one condition of survival in this nuclear age.

Adlai E. Stevenson

A lot of music you might listen to is pretty vapid, it doesn’t always deal with our deeper issues. These are the things I’m interested in now, particularly at my age.

Annie Lennox

We hold that the most wonderful and splendid proof of genius is a great poem produced in a civilized age.

Thomas B. Macaulay

Age gives you a great sense of proportion. You can be very hard on yourself when you’re younger but now I just think ‘well everybody’s absolutely mad and I’m doing quite well’.

Steven Morrissey

It’s really amazing that in the age of unbelief, as a smart man called it, there isn’t even more fraud. After all, with no God, there’s no one to ever call you to account, and no accounting at all if you can get away with it.

Ben Stein

I was taught from a young age that many people would treat me as a second-class citizen because I was African-American and because I was female.

Queen Latifah

As winter strips the leaves from around us, so that we may see the distant regions they formerly concealed, so old age takes away our enjoyments only to enlarge the prospect of the coming eternity.

Jean Paul

I’m not afraid of aging.

Shelley Duvall

Of course, the ideal scenario for parenting is obviously two parents of a mature age.

Jennifer Aniston

I’m not busy… a woman with three children under the age of 10 wouldn’t think my schedule looked so busy.

Garrison Keillor

I started auditioning when I was about 10 and I didn’t get my first job until I was 12, and two years at that age is really hard.

Anna Kendrick

You end up as you deserve. In old age you must put up with the face, the friends, the health, and the children you have earned.

Judith Viorst

The philosophies of one age have become the absurdities of the next, and the foolishness of yesterday has become the wisdom of tomorrow.

William Osler

Does age matter? Time doesn’t matter.

Sandra Bullock

We tried not to age, but time had its rage.

Patti Smith

Youth is when you’re allowed to stay up late on New Year’s Eve. Middle age is when you’re forced to.

Bill Vaughan

Love for Music Quotes Latest 2020 Collection [Part 6]

I don’t listen to a lot of music any more and even the people I’ve loved for years – the Nick Drakes of this world – I can’t go back to them and listen to them over and over.

David Sylvian

I’m not a music lover in the sense that I look for something to have on. I’ve never had that attitude to music.

Harrison Birtwistle

I had a brother six years older than me, so I wasn’t just listening to teenybopper stuff. My brother had the cooler music, but my parents had the Burt Bacharach, Tom Jones, the Association, the Fifth Dimension; these groups were un-cool, but I secretly loved them.

Jill Sobule

We really were a very musical family. Father managed to buy us a small pump organ, and I just loved this instrument.

Lawrence Welk

I love to talk about the drums and music. I started playing drums when I was probably six and played a lot until I was about ten or eleven years old. So, I guess five or six years where I played. I had a drum set at home, and I would just bang on it. I’d even go on the Internet and study basic beats and so forth.

Sean Berdy

My previous visits to Australia created fantastic memories, so I’m definitely looking forward to another visit. It is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. I think every person in the entire country is nice. Seriously, I haven’t seen or heard of a mean person yet. And they love country music.

Joe Nichols

That type of autograph, pictures and apparel thievery was not part of what I grew up with. I loved the artists and their music. I would be thrilled to meet them, but the thought of getting a scribble or stealing an article of clothing never occurred or appealed to me.

Davey Havok

This music business can suck all the love out of you, all the compassion for people – you can start to think you’re better than them. But I want to continue to let people know that I’m no better and no worse, I’m just like you.

Mary J. Blige

I still absolutely love ‘The Sound of Music’ and anything with Julie Andrews in it.

Kristin Scott Thomas

My first album was full of ideas and attempts to go in all kinds of directions. I was young. I loved making music, but I didn’t have a clear path. I also lacked in confidence.

Yael Naim

I love music but, of course, I’d choose love over that.

Leona Lewis

I cannot fire Brian Wilson from the Beach Boys. I am not his employer. I do not have such authority. And even if I did, I would never fire Brian Wilson from the Beach Boys. I love Brian Wilson. We are partners. He’s my cousin by birth and my brother in music.

Mike Love

I don’t know where people think I’m from, but I’m from Chicago. It’s really just that. People wanna romanticize it and say, ‘There’s two sides to it, and it’s a beautiful love/hate story of violence and music.’ But it’s really just a very scummy place where people don’t have respect for other people’s lives.

Chance The Rapper

I always had a love of music, from the time I was a little kid, dressing up and singing along with Michael Jackson songs.

Matisyahu

I listen to music cinematically. I think about music and how it would make me feel when it’s put to an image, a moving image, and I love it.

Walton Goggins

Before ‘Lost Boy,’ I was singing, doing six-second covers on Vine, working part-time and in school, but music was always my true love.

Ruth B

One of the things I love about music is live performance.

Yo-Yo Ma

I love, love, love music – have since I was a kid, and I’m still really into music – and I became a singer because I was too stupid to learn how to play an instrument, I guess.

Cassandra Peterson

I just love making music, and that’s my focus.

Kiiara

I got my interest in Lotte Lenya and the Brecht-Weill canon from my parents. And I love classical music – I got that from my parents. I love Cole Porter – that I got from my dad.

Marianne Faithfull

Music, in Mexico, just wasn’t working out. So, I fell into acting and I just fell in love with it. It was amazing! It was a great safe place to just vent.

Adan Canto

I was always into music, but I wanted to do film when I was kid. I remember seeing big movies and wanting to do them. Then I was lucky enough to act in some of them, and I fell in love with it.

Matthew James Thomas

I love Wagner, but the music I prefer is that of a cat hung up by its tail outside a window and trying to stick to the panes of glass with its claws.

Charles Baudelaire

I love singing. It makes me feel good. It’s like a release, especially when I’m singing soul music.

Michael Kiwanuka

I love when people are coming up and they’re working hard and you can see that they’re really focused on the process to their music. I really dig that. As a musician, it’s nice to see people who really care about the process.

Amos Lee

Look at music: I’ve always loved hiphop and rap, and now there’s this whole progressive movement, with De La Soul and Mos Def, Common. It’s some of the best stuff around.

Ryan Phillippe

The music of the Clovers and Spaniels and the rest was like candy to me. I couldn’t get enough; my teachers probably thought I had attention deficit disorder.

Aaron Neville

I love singing! I was a musical theater girl in high school. We were always singing and dancing around, and just doing little community theaters and high school musicals. Then, when I got to NYU, I focused more on drama.

Katie Lowes

Music is what I breathe, what I love to do. It keeps me alive.

Miley Cyrus

I only discovered electronic music as a teenager and I still love the Prodigy and Massive Attack.

Dhani Harrison

I love heavy music, but you see, I had fallen in love with a radio station in Vegas that played nothing but Eighties music. That had a real profound impact on me.

Dave Keuning

I love knowing that people are connecting to my lyrics, my music and me.

Lee DeWyze

I think Edward Sharpe’s music is counter-cultural music in the strangest sense where you have a time now where love, optimism, hope and community are uncool and not part of the mainstream culture.

Alex Ebert

I’ve always been in love with music, but I’ve never thought to sing.

Tamala Jones

I recommend my students not to be professional unless they really have to be. I tell them, ‘If you love music, sell Hoovers or be a plumber. Do something useful with your life.’

Robert Fripp

My job as an entertainer is to take you some place else. I love exploring different genres of music to please my fans.

Gloria Estefan

I’m pretty much living my dream job, but one day I would love to dedicate more time to writing and performing my own music.

Kendall Schmidt

I felt that with ‘In A Perfect World’ I was still kind of finding myself – not just as a musician, but also in love and in life.

Keri Hilson

As I grew up, I wasn’t a great buyer of albums, but I really liked ‘The Jam.’ I like good musicians and loved the energy of their songs.

Anton du Beke

I love going to the cinema, listening to music, yoga and long walks along Holkham beach in Norfolk.

Saffron Aldridge

I hadn’t played any music since freshman year of college, more than thirty years ago, so I had to relearn everything. I started writing songs. Some were dance and trance songs (I listen to them a lot while I’m writing), and some were love songs, because that after all is what music is about – dancing and trancing and love and love’s setbacks.

Nicholson Baker

Both of my parents were super music lovers when I was growing up – they had a massive record and tape collection. I think my dad even had a couple of laser discs, but that was a short-lived thing.

Madi Diaz

What is music. A passion for colonies not a love of country.

Gertrude Stein

When I was first going out to funky events, it was a lovely kind of music to dance to – it had such a nice vibe.

Kyla Reid

I fell in love with funk music through my father – Funkadelic – as well as soul and classical early on.

Miguel

I’m inspired by artists and musicians. There are so many wonderful and talented people in the world. I love discovering new music, new writers, or new art.

Alicia Keys

Oh, I will always be honest with my music. The records are black boxes for me. Like if you want to know who I am, my views, my perspective, things I love, things I hate, my convictions, my anthems. I’ve never let people’s opinions affect the way I write.

Katy Perry

I find that it isn’t wise to attempt to judge people on their public persona, and even on the music they make. Because I’ve met so many people whose music I cannot stand, and they’re very nice. At the same time, I’ve met people whose music I’ve loved, and they’re not the person you’ve invested all this emotion in.

Morrissey

I’d say that my musical influences are anywhere from pop-rock electronica, new age and classical. But I think that specifically, bands – I love Jem, I love Sigur Ross, I love David Gray, I love Elliot Smith… a lot of different people. But I don’t find lyrical inspiration from anybody.

Emmy Rossum

Music gave me something that was not only good for me – it gave me something to work on, something to be proud of and something that I really loved and have a love for – but also music was good for other people because you put joy into the world.

Flea

The music is the message, the message is the music. So that’s my little ministry that the Big Man upstairs gave to me – a little ministry called love and happiness.

Al Green

For me, I just want to continue telling stories – whether it’s musically or theatrically, this is what I love to do. So, I want to create more.

AJ Michalka

Obviously, fans are the beginning and end for any artist. The minute your fans embrace you and accept you, you begin this ride of being in music and having a career doing something you love. You get to go be a kid and live out your dreams by performing music for fans who come out to your shows.

Luke Bryan

Finding great songs is the hard part of my gig – it’s not as hard as songwriting, that’s much more daunting – but I love playing other people’s music.

Bonnie Raitt

I just play the music that I love with musicians that I respect, and fortunately, I’m in a position where people are willing to play with me, and perhaps I can do something to help them.

Bonnie Raitt

I never studied jazz technically; I just know and love the music.

Mark Ronson

I don’t want to put any pressure on the music; it’s my hobby and my release – a thing that I love.

Iwan Rheon

You have to be careful not to make music something you don’t want to do. Which happens. I’ve gotten off the road and been like, ‘I hate it. I hate singing, I hate playing guitar.’ Six days later, I’m in my bedroom singing at the top of my lungs because I love it so much.

Shawn Mendes

I would love to do a big-budget movie musical – I feel like there is one big musical movie a year. And I’m always there at the theater to see them – I love them.

Autumn Reeser

Ever since the Beatles, the concept of lovable mop tops, it’s a bit of a fantasy, but it’s a lovely idea that people make wonderful music and live a wonderful life being friends together. Sadly, life isn’t quite like that.

Nick Mason

Fashion and music have always played off each other and certainly do for me; I love both so much. But there are definitely those moments when you’re playing the right song at the right time in the right place, and it feels like the best job in the world.

Harley Viera-Newton

There’s something in me that loves to inspire people: when I’m playing music, I imagine all this sparkly stardust going through everyone. I want to make people come alive.

Bat for Lashes

It’s like there’s the rest of the world, and then there’s America. Part of the reason I would really love continue to making music over here because so much of American music has inspired me, whether it’s Jeff Buckley, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen.

Tom Odell

I believe I was born for this, to tell people about the Lord. I just wanted to find the best way that I could do it, and music, God graced me to be able to do it, and that was the way that I chose to be effective and tell people that the Lord loves them.

Fred Hammond

There aren’t that many songs that pay homage to the DJ. They are the ones getting artists’ music out there. They are the ones getting the club popping. But no one’s giving them any love.

Tila Tequila

The Goth character was a difficult thing to get my head round. I’m not really a fan of Goth music. I’m more a piano and guitar man – that’s what I love.

Richard Fleeshman

I love the dancing and the music from Latin cultures. I went to a Flamenco show in Spain once, and it completely took my breath away!

Torrey DeVitto

I’m sure I would have been considered a more significant artist if I was a singer-songwriter. It’s just not the way I roll. I love being a curator and a musicologist. People write me letters and thank me for turning them on to Fred McDowell and Sippie Wallace, and that’s partly my job this time around.

Bonnie Raitt

I love most melodic music – classical, reggae, big band, jazz, blues, country, pop, swing, folk.

John Lescroart

I did a pop album, ‘Sogno,’ in 1999. I think it’s important to record another pop album because many people love pop music. By this kind of repertoire, some people can later discover classical music.

Andrea Bocelli

I took tap and ballet, which likely contributed to my sense of rhythm and showmanship. I love creating music that gets people moving together, free of inhibitions.

Bria Skonberg

I don’t relate to what’s left of the music business. There doesn’t seem to be any point to it anymore. The business that I grew up in and loved, we made records a different way – there were record companies, there were stores where you could buy albums.

Don McLean

This quality, I mean Geoffrey was with me, was very easy doing – he loved me very much, I loved him very much, and we understood each other so well that it was a pleasure to make music.

Victoria de los Angeles

I don’t love the whole Hollywood mentality, but I do love the weather and how motivated everyone is around here. It motivates me to make fun music.

Charlie Puth

If I couldn’t act, I’d really love to try music.

Ryan Eggold

I love any opportunity I have to make music.

Barry Manilow

Reggae music is a music of integrity; reggae’s consciousness was built on a message. My music speaks of love, equality and spirituality, and I would hope that one finds this integrity in my music.

Stephen Marley

I am a good boy. Sweet. I love to chill. I have a select set of friends, am big on house music, love Goa. I don’t read much. Though that is one habit I am trying to inculcate.

Shahid Kapoor

The musicals that I love on stage are generally meant for the stage.

Joss Whedon

I actually write film music because I’m classically trained on the piano so as well as songwriting I also write actual film music that could be used for movies like war movies and love movies.

Vanessa Brown

I just love music, and I love what music does for people.

James McBride

We listened to a lot of drama, adaptations of books, comedy. There was a real love of music expressed in choirs, because you didn’t have to have instruments except your voice.

Melvyn Bragg

My parents taught me everything and set me up for life. I owe to them all the things I’m passionate about: music, art, the people I love, my career and family life, the fact that I have children and the way that I raise them.

Olivia Williams

I always loved the way music made me feel. I did sports at school and all, but when I got home, it was just music. Everybody in my neighborhood loved music. I could jump the back fence and be in the park where there were ghetto blasters everywhere.

Dr. Dre

I love musical theater. That’s what I started off to do when I was 7, and my first show was ‘Peter Pan.’

David Hasselhoff

I’m a businesswoman. I am a music lover. I like for people to like my music. When you listen to top 40 radio, you hear pop stuff. You hear rock stuff. You hear all these different influences.

Lee Ann Womack

I love being a musician. I love the lifestyle. But I think it’s probably as difficult and frustrating as anything.

Trevor Dunn

That’s what I’ve tried to do: I’ve tried to make music that I really love.

Rebecca Ferguson

I just love storytelling. I write music to tell stories. So when I’m done writing a song, I take it and go, ‘Okay. How can I interpret these lyrics differently?’ I love taking lyrics that were so close to me at a certain point in my life and then revamping them. I always want to take things to the next level.

Hayley Kiyoko

I was sort of in denial about doing country for awhile but I sort of grew up and realized who I was, what I wanted to say. I think country music is the best music in the world and I’m glad to be doing a country album. I hope people will love it as much as I loved making it.

Lucy Hale

Aretha Franklin was a teenage mom, a musician who came from an incredibly Christian background, but there was a lot of love, which is really inspiring in a feminist way.

Beth Ditto

I’m in my father’s car at age 9 or 10 crying to Leonard Cohen’s ‘Famous Blue Raincoat,’ thinking that you could write nearly a love letter to a man who betrayed you by having an affair with your wife. I was thinking how wonderful and pure music can be for explaining situations.

Lou Doillon

I love Adele and Lykke Li. I also listen to classical music as well.

Birdy

Success was one of my weakest points. I was so ill-prepared for it. I never appreciated within myself the gift of success. I never accepted it. People gave me so much momentum and love, and people really got my music, but I didn’t accept it. That’s probably one of my biggest regrets.

Sophie B. Hawkins

There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more.

Lord Byron

My favorite music isn’t necessarily the songs that One Direction come out with. That doesn’t mean to say I don’t secretly really love some of our songs, which I do. My personal tastes… I actually like quite a bit acoustic and more mellow kinds of things.

Louis Tomlinson

I love hip-hop; I love Sleigh Bells. I also love classical music and musical theater.

Tatiana Maslany

Acting was my first love before music.

Crystal Bowersox

Every girl likes to just rock out when they put music on in their room – I learned that personally when fans would tell us how much they loved to make up their own dances to Cheetah Girls songs.

Sabrina Bryan

I am a very musical person. I love music, and I don’t just love Cape Breton fiddling, although it’s my favorite.

Natalie MacMaster

I like to read, especially nonfiction. I love learning, so I study languages, cook, learn basic HTML, and enjoy other activities that stimulate communication and the dark recesses of my musician’s brain.

Joshua Roman

I’ve never done a musical, and I don’t think I could do one, but I would love to play Sally Bowles in ‘Cabaret.’

Lydia Leonard

I don’t hate the music, but I hate the process. When I look at it, I don’t see song titles and artwork, I see the fight – I see the emotions, the blood, sweat and tears. There are a couple of songs on there that I love; but ‘Lasers’ is a little bit of what you love, a little bit of what you like, and a lot of what you had to do.

Lupe Fiasco

David Bowie’s my favorite musician. I love him above all, but I’m really into rap a lot right now.

Ethan Suplee

I still have all the faith and love for my music and yet I’m still playing places for kids.

Juliana Hatfield

I loved Art Tatum! And, through him, and other different jazz musicians, I actually found my technique.

Tony Bennett

I love music, from shanty sea-songs to Calvin Harris.

Brian McDermott

Music is my love and to me acting is more mercenary. I don’t pound the pavements for roles: if it happens, it happens. I hate that auditioning thing.

David Johansen

I’d love it if American kids were listening to Muslim music.

Brian Eno

I have a confession to make – I truly love country music.

Sarah Rees Brennan

Up until I started on YouTube, my first love was musical theater.

Sam Tsui

You have the ability to write melodies and to put lyrics that mean something: to speak about life and what people are going through in their every day ups and downs, the good times and the bad times. Country music has always talked about life, I think; that’s what I’ve always loved about it.

Jimi Westbrook

I loved music and dance, and that was exciting to me.

Debbie Reynolds

I love music of all kinds, but there’s no greater music than the sound of my grandchildren laughing; my kids, too.

Sylvia Earle

I would love to bring the children from my foundation Sinfonia por el Peru to play with some of the best musicians in the world.

Juan Diego Florez

I like to dabble in different things, but music is my first love. It connects to me in a way my side projects don’t because it’s so personal. I write the words. Music is like my diary. It’s my therapy.

Eve

Music is what I love to do; it’s in my veins.

Demi Lovato

Most of what we take as being important is not material, whether it’s music or feelings or love. They’re things we can’t really see or touch. They’re not material, but they’re vitally important to us.

Judy Collins

Retire? Not on your life. I have no plans to stop singing. What are you going to do when you love music? It’s a terrible disease. You can’t stop. Of course, I’d like to get off the road.

Peggy Lee

I grew up loving Etta James and Aretha Franklin and Al Green and Otis Redding, and I just love old-school R&B. It’s just music that moves you and grooves you, and it was very important, I think, for music.

Elle King

My first memories of music are of my mother playing Dominican music in the house because my parents love to dance. They love to throw parties and dance, so there was a lot Latin music in the house.

Cyrille Aimee

My secret to success is that I’ve always loved good music and people.

Sid Bernstein

I always wanted to go into film. I love film. I loved growing up in the theatre, but I always wanted to do film all along. But, I still pursue music separately.

Sabrina Lloyd

The passion for doing music, the passion that I have for going out and playing it live – my love for country music is back.

Joe Nichols

I think my intention was there, and my love for the music was apparent. And there are very few singers who get up and desire to take the kinds of risks that jazz musicians routinely need to be taking.

Kurt Elling

It’s more difficult to write a song about having your heart ripped out of your chest while you’re in love. Because it lacks honesty. And the honesty comes through in the music, it really does.

Chad Kroeger

Musically, I actually grew up listening to country music as a kid, like George Strait, Alan Jackson… all those guys. So it was kind of weird crossing over from that to pop and R&B, but you know, I love Michael Jackson, Ne-Yo, Usher, R. Kelly, Drake, Boyz II Men.

Austin Mahone

Since I was a child, I always loved music that made me want to dance. As a teenager, I used to dance the night away to electronic music.

Nadia Ali

Classical music has been based on works people love and come back to for aural comfort.

Leila Josefowicz

Certainly, I’ve loved musicals for a while, so I did some short films in college that had musical numbers and things like that, so I’ve kind of been obsessed with Fred and Ginger and Vincente Minnelli and Stanley Donen and Jaques Demy forever.

Damien Chazelle

My experience with music, I’m not going to say extremely negative, but it’s definitely been a grind; it’s been grimy – it hasn’t been a pretty process. It’s left me crying, you know, on the carpet in my tiny apartment with, like, no money. But it’s been worth it, it’s my passion, my dream, it’s what I love to do.

Kat Graham

‘Partita’ is a simple piece. Born of a love of surface and structure, of the human voice, of dancing and tired ligaments, of music, and of our basic desire to draw a line from one point to another.

Caroline Shaw

I’ve always loved acoustic music because I’ve always loved to hear someone’s words or just watch them and just get into them. The distancing thing about rock is it’s so assaulting.

Jane Siberry

When you don’t act right to your family and friends, that’s bad, but they also have the opportunity to experience the ‘good’ side as well. Disappointing the fans is an entirely different thing because the fans love your music and save up money to see you in concert.

George Jones

Composers love to write for symphony orchestras because the symphony is the Rolls Royce of musical instruments.

David Del Tredici

I’m completely in love with the world but also terrified of it. It creates some overwhelming feelings. Wanting to battle out that joy and fear is part of my music.

Florence Welch

I would love to be able to pursue music as a career but honestly, I’m just not good enough.

Shawn Ashmore

I’d love to do a modern-day musical that’s full of original music. To get your contemporaries to sing and dance without looking foolish and for it to be transformational and magical and all those things a musical is supposed to be.

Danny Boyle

I’d love to do a musical. I have a little list of them in my head.

Swoosie Kurtz

For me, and this may not be everybody, but because I do love country music so much, there’s such a feeling of home in Nashville, especially because it’s such a small town. You bring up one song, everybody knows who wrote it, everybody knows their mother and what their cell number is, and all of the stories.

Garrett Hedlund

I love music. I have a fondness for Chopin, and I very much like his ‘Raindrop Prelude.’

Daniel Tammet

Billie Holiday I never met, but I love her music.

Nichelle Nichols

It was a free-for-all with music when I was growing up. My mother was a huge music fanatic so I was listening to everything from country to heavy metal to Indigo Girls to Elton John. I guess when I was really young I didn’t like Willie Nelson, and she obviously loved him. Now I do too, I’m so thankful to her for playing his music nonstop.

Tig Notaro

I really believed that my songs were good enough for the whole world to listen to. I had fans from America or the U.K. who would be like, ‘Oh my God, I love your music’.

Yuna

A lot of R&B cats are doing a lot of auto-tune. Tyrese went back to the basics. I love classic soul music and Ginuwine. Ginuwine and Usher laid the foundation back in the ’90s. There’s no one doing that anymore.

Leon Bridges

I love finding talents to pair my music with such as Conrad on ‘Firestone’, Parson James with ‘Stole the Show,’ and Will Heard on ‘Nothing Left.’

Kygo

My audience went, ‘Wait, why is she singing jazz? What’s going on?’ And then they went, ‘Oh, because she can. Because she loves it.’ And jazz, a music invented by the African-American community, is the greatest art form, I believe, to have ever come out of this country.

Lady Gaga

But I love how people who are musical, they know how to dress.

Amy Sedaris

A lot of music doesn’t do one thing or another. It just doesn’t do anything. Then there are those pieces of music that thrill your soul. It’s such a wide range, and it’s really interesting that we all love different things.

David Lynch

One of my heroes is a composer named James Bernard, and oh my God… I can still listen to his music today and be stirred and moved by it. But I think that you fall in love with… Well, again, when you’re young, it really is more powerful. Much more terrifying.

John Carpenter

I love to listen to pop all the time! I like to be updated on the new hits; I think it’s important for what we do. Among my favorites of all time is, of course, Madonna. But I also love Kylie, our little princess; Beyonce, Bruno Mars, and Justin Bieber. And I listen to Italian pop music like Tiziano Ferro.

Domenico Dolce

John Mayer and Jack Johnson are two of my all-time favorites. I love Colbie Caillat and really cool, beach-y, guitar, acoustic type music.

Halston Sage

But I’m also a music lover, and I’ll always try a lot of different things.

Lee Ann Womack

Music is my passion – it’s what I love and it’s in my blood. You can never take me away from my work.

Nicole Scherzinger

At the beginning, my folks were pretty upset with the whole thing at first, the music, the tattoos – but after observing the music scene I’m in now for a couple of years, they totally get it – they actually love it. They are so proud. My dad actually flew to Japan to see us play. My mom comes to the shows near home in Washington.

Matty Mullins

I’d love to do a musical. I’ve been known to have a good step or two. I’m half Samoan, you know, and part of our culture is singing and dancing daily.

Dwayne Johnson

It’s always a pleasure to perform for people who love country music. And Australians definitely fall into that category. Each time I go back, I learn something new about the country, and I get to see some of the most beautiful places on the planet.

Joe Nichols

I love going into a dive where they have no idea who I am or haven’t heard my music and try to win them over.

Schuyler Fisk

I’m that girl that’s a hardcore musician and loves to sing and write and play instruments but, at the same time, loves video games, metal music, and just being a goofy person.

Christina Grimmie

I love being in the studio, and I am a huge fan of live music. Without writing good stuff in the studio, you have nothing to play live.

Anthony Hamilton

I don’t really mind what people say about my love life or anything like that, but the one thing is that, yes, I do sing and write all my own music. That is something that I hold really dear. And yeah, I made a fool of myself in front of the world, but it was also great to pick myself back up and go on tour.

Ashlee Simpson

Music is more of a hobby to me than my hobbies, if that makes sense. I love music; my dad and brother were very musical, and music just happens to be one of my hobbies that became my vocation.

Al Jardine

I’d always loved poetry and I’d always loved writing music and composing music, but I hadn’t thought of putting the two together until around that time.

Bruce Cockburn

There’s some places where, I don’t know if they’re fiddle fans, or Natalie fans or if they just love Celtic music, but there’s some places where there’s just awesome crowds.

Natalie MacMaster

Playing sport was somewhat frivolous, but I liked it. I rebelled a little bit, and wouldn’t go to music lessons and things like that, but I would go and play ball. My parents learned to love it because they saw how much I got out of it.

Mike Krzyzewski

My dad has actually really influenced me musically. I have a weird love for ’80s and ’90s music. A lot of people are like, ‘Are you serious? It’s so lame.’ But my dad always plays that in the car whenever we’re together.

Harley Quinn Smith

I love that there’s this tradition of being able to discuss the heaviest topics and the gnarliest stuff that goes down in people’s lives in traditional Southern American music.

Gillian Welch

It’s fun and super exciting to see how other people work, how other people write music, and how other people put things together. To me, it’s an endless learning process, and I love doing it because everybody works so completely differently.

Alison Mosshart

He’s the reason why I write music. If he’s reading this – James Taylor, I’d love to work with you! My mom would put headphones on her belly before I was born, so I’ve been listening to him literally all of my life. When my dad played me ‘Walking Man,’ I heard those chord changes and that melody, it completely blew me away.

Charlie Puth

Religion can make it worse. Are you supposing that if people were encouraged to believe in a transcendent reality, and to be encouraged by grand rituals and music and preaching, to love their neighbors, then they would put jealousy and frustration aside?

Mary Douglas

This is sort of not expected, but I would love to produce a record for Missy Elliott. It would be totally different, but she makes party music. ‘Lose Control’ was my favorite song when I was in 5th or 6th grade.

Ansel Elgort

The music industry is such a different world from the acting world. Everything is really last minute, but I love the challenge, and I love owning my material and being able to put out what I want.

Hayley Kiyoko

Every day I feel different about music, but what never changes is my love for it.

Kid Rock

My mom loved rock n’ roll. My father hated it. We couldn’t play it when he was around. He liked classical music and Duke Ellington.

Patti Smith

310 Famous Love Quotes for Mother / Grandmother 2020 Collection

I know what it is like to be brought up with unconditional love. In my life that came from my grandmother.

Andre Leon Talley

But what are friends? What is a husband, even, compared with one’s Mother? Of her love, one is always so sure! It is the only love that nothing – not even misconduct on our part – can take away from us.

Jane Welsh Carlyle

From my foster parents, the Deans, I received the love that was ultimately to strengthen me, even when I had forgotten its source. It was my foster mother, a half-Indian, half-German woman, who taught me to read, though she herself was barely literate. I remember her reading to me every day from ‘True Romance’ magazine.

Walter Dean Myers

All of us wish we’d had perfect childhoods, with a mother and father who modeled ideal parental attitudes and taught us to internalize the tenets of self-love. Many of us, however, did not.

Marianne Williamson

‘What was there before the Big Bang?’ That’s a question that both kids and adults love to pose to anyone who seems sympathetic. After all, if the universe has only been around for roughly 14 billion years, isn’t it legitimate to ask what was in existence before the mother-of-all-events cranked up the cosmos?

Seth Shostak

In Japan, mothers insist on achievement and accomplishment as a sign of love and respect. Thus to fail places children in a highly shamed situation.

Michael Lewis

I want people to remember that Pakistan is my country. It is like my mother, and I love it dearly. Even if its people hate me, I will still love it.

Malala Yousafzai

My mother’s from Thailand, and they’re very strict about girls in bikinis, but I would love to do a shoot in the floating market in Thailand.

Christine Teigen

Scents evoke very, very powerful memories, whether it’s the scent of someone that you know and someone that you love, or if it’s a meal that your mother made.

Blake Lively

My mother got me into music when I was a little kid. She used to play music, blast it, when she was cleaning the house, while I was crawling around. I just love loud music.

Pauly D

I grew up with a fashion-obsessed mother and an older sister, so there was a lot of fashion in my house. The first thing I remember owning was a Pierre Cardin jumpsuit when I was 9 or 10; of course I didn’t actually buy it, but I fell in love with it.

Nina Garcia

Literature has been part of my life for as long as I can remember. I can’t think back before a time that I didn’t love writing and reading. When I was really young, my mother would read poems to me. I loved Edgar Allan Poe – I am sure I didn’t understand it, but I loved it.

Alexandra Adornetto

My mother goes crazy over babies. Some people just do. They love ’em! I never have. Babies scare me more than anything. They’re tiny and fragile and impressionable – and someone else’s! As much as I hate borrowing stuff, that is how much I hate holding other people’s babies. It’s too much responsibility.

Margaret Cho

I realized relatively early on that I had no desire to be a mother whatsoever. I actually love children, but specifically other people’s.

Cindy Gallop

I love my parents, and I want my mother to be president.

Chelsea Clinton

My mother loved entertaining, and I’ve followed suit, so we have big celebrations for New Year, Passover, Thanksgiving and birthdays.

Joan Rivers

We mothers of grown-up daughters tend to view them with a mixture of love, exasperation, irritation and awe.

Anne Robinson

I may discuss love, and I don’t mind if two men fall in love, fine. Two women, fine. But I flinch when I think of two Jewish women getting together and having a child because the idea of having two Jewish mothers makes my head explode. I have one; I couldn’t handle two.

Garry Shandling

The women I love most are Latina – my sister, mother, and daughter. They’re spontaneous but spend a majority of their time trying to make others happy.

William Levy

People love talking about writers as storytellers, but I hate being called that: it suggests I got it from my grandmother or something, when my writing really comes out of silence. If a storyteller came up to me, I’d run away.

Colm Toibin

My folks were busy. My dad was a teacher, and it was during the Second World War, and my mother was working. So I got my stories from films and books. I read a lot, and I love to read to this day.

Robert Osborne

I obviously have a great love and appreciation of jewelry, thanks to my mother, much to the dismay of both my father and my boyfriends.

Ivanka Trump

Playing Ann Landers is like channeling my mother. That combination of love and the enjoyment of life is my mother. And you find that combination in Ann Landers’ letters.

Mimi Kennedy

Although in my life the level of loss has never reached the extremes it does in ‘The Winter People,’ I certainly can identify with being both a daughter longing for her mother and being a mother who is almost scared by the intensity of her love for her daughter.

Jennifer McMahon

Aristotle uses a mother’s love for her child as the prime example of love or friendship.

Mortimer Adler

My mother sent me to speech classes, but the other kids still teased me. I was shy. I stooped. Instead of talking, I kept journals. That’s where my love of words comes from. I majored in journalism.

Colman Domingo

Mama was my greatest teacher, a teacher of compassion, love and fearlessness. If love is sweet as a flower, then my mother is that sweet flower of love.

Stevie Wonder

I just love motherhood.

Reba McEntire

My mother and father didn’t love each other, so they were always fighting.

Tina Turner

I don’t believe in regretting – one should try to move on. My mum was good at that. She was deeply in love with my father, and he died when I was nine. She remarried, and her second husband died, too. I saw the grieving process she went through. My mother had this way of moving on. It was a fine trait.

Robert Winston

You know it’s very important, the role of a mother… I don’t know, but it’s feminism to me to love your kids.

Carine Roitfeld

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

I’ve always wanted to have the ability to do what I want to do. And there are so many things that I want to do because I love acting, I love directing, I love producing, I love being a mother, I love being a wife. If I had to choose one, just would put me in the crazy house.

Jada Pinkett Smith

All the laws and legislation in the world will never heal this world like the loving hearts and arms of mothers and fathers. If every child could drift to sleep feeling wrapped in the love of their family – and God’s love – this world would be a far more gentle and better place.

Mitt Romney

A father may turn his back on his child, brothers and sisters may become inveterate enemies, husbands may desert their wives, wives their husbands. But a mother’s love endures through all.

Washington Irving

I like to feel that what I’m doing portrays this: a family where there is love between mother, father and the kids. It’s a subject that is near and dear to me.

Bil Keane

I think seeing the love between a mother and child is something we can all really relate to. You can remember it from your own childhood perspective.

Brie Larson

The Lord has been there from wanting to be a momma, to having a wonderful childhood life and dreaming of having a good motherhood as a child; always wanting to meet a good old country boy and having someone to love as much as I love my husband Roland and having a little boy that is a mixture of the both of us.

Ashton Shepherd

Here’s a thing about the death of your mother, or anyone else you love: You can’t anticipate how you’ll feel afterward. People will tell you; a few may be close to right, none exactly right.

Mary Schmich

Indian-ness, love for your country, is complicated. For every person, there is a different way that you show respect for your country… my mother-in-law will say karmayogi is the way to go – do your work.

Raghuram Rajan

My mother was a first-grade teacher, so I credit her with this lifelong intellectual curiosity I have, and love of reading and learning.

Chesley Sullenberger

My parents have influenced my fashion choices. I inherited many of their older garments, and I like their style. I love my mother’s elegant and dramatic couture dresses and the feeling for colour my father has.

Elizabeth Jagger

I credit my grandmother for teaching me to love and respect food. She taught me how to waste nothing, to make sure I used every bit of the chicken and boil the bones till no flavor could be extracted from them.

Marcus Samuelsson

What is interesting about me isn’t that I am a mother, it is who I am. I love my family, but if I just talk to you about being a mother, it’s boring. I am sorry, but it’s reducing who I really am, and it’s really boring.

Laetitia Casta

I love soccer. My father is from Argentina and my mother is from El Salvador. I grew up watching Argentinean soccer. I get really worked up watching soccer. It’s in my blood.

J. D. Pardo

I have always been a great believer that women should support women, and my admiration goes out to mothers everywhere, as they constantly put their own needs behind those of their children, embracing daily uncertainties and entering the new uncharted territories that each day brings, to be, in return, rewarded with joy and unending love.

Victoria Beckham

My mother, who died aged 82, had Alzheimer’s. Losing your memory is bad enough, but everything shuts down. You can’t remember how to eat or go to the toilet. It’s a terrible disease and so distressing to watch it take over someone you love.

Bonnie Tyler

I love a lot of these older actresses, like Cicely Tyson, who played Kunta Kinte’s mother in ‘Roots.’ She was really great, and I like seeing her because every movie she plays, she plays a strong character. As a kid, she was really inspiring to me.

Keke Palmer

The mother’s battle for her child with sickness, with poverty, with war, with all the forces of exploitation and callousness that cheapen human life needs to become a common human battle, waged in love and in the passion for survival.

Adrienne Rich

I love being middle-aged in general. I’m more at peace with myself now. I still have tormented times, but they are few and far between. You don’t feel you have to be the centre of your world when you get older. Becoming a mother had been a turning point which stopped me from being the centre of my world.

Alison Moyet

An Editor becomes kind of your mother. You expect love and encouragement from an Editor.

Jackie Kennedy

I’d love to do some bedtime stories for kids or that kind of thing. But with the demands of the shooting schedule and balancing the demands of being a single mother, it’s a wonder you can squeeze in anything.

Roma Downey

I have always loved lipstick. For women, that love comes from our mother and grandmothers. It’s so natural for a woman to open up her mirror and apply lipstick.

Monica Bellucci

My mother’s incredible diaries, which she’d written from when she was 21, and even before that. She fell in love with my father when she was 12.

Charlotte Rampling

I love whimsy. My mother was a word person, a real quipster. She was famous in the 1950s for being a contester in Utah: 25 words or less. My bicycle, our hi-fi… in 1959, she won $15,000 from Remington-Rand for writing about a shaver. She was a farm girl from South Dakota.

Ron Carlson

I love to sing. I never had any formal training. My mother is a singer, and I picked up listening to her.

Nimrat Kaur

As we grew to love South Australia, we felt that we were in an expanding society, still feeling the bond to the motherland, but eager to develop a perfect society, in the land of our adoption.

Catherine Helen Spence

On ‘Love Actually’, I met Hugh Grant, who is a relative: our great-grandmothers were sisters. He’d call me cousin and ruffle my hair.

Thomas Brodie-Sangster

I thank my mother, Terezinha, for the power of her transforming love.

Maria das Gracas Silva Foster

My husband doesn’t listen because his mother didn’t make him listen. What am I going to do, beat him? I mean: firstborn of a southern family? Firstborn boy? Please. I mean, I love him to death, but is he going to take the garbage out? No.

Carol Bartz

John Henry Holliday didn’t have a mother to love him when he was grown, so I have taken him for my own. My fondest hope for Doc is that it will win for him the compassion and respect I think he deserves.

Mary Doria Russell

I come from a very illustrious line of divorces. We love to get divorced in my family. My mother and father have been married four times each – eight ceremonies with the best of intentions.

Joshua Ferris

I’m a man with many defects. I love. I sing. I dream. I was born in the poor countryside. I was raised in the countryside, planting corn and selling sweets made by my grandmother. My children, my two daughters are with me and I want a better world for my grandchildren, for your grandchildren.

Hugo Chavez

I was not a classic mother. But my kids were never palmed off to boarding school. So, I didn’t bake cookies. You can buy cookies, but you can’t buy love.

Raquel Welch

Food, love, career, and mothers, the four major guilt groups.

Cathy Guisewite

My mother encouraged it so much. She was so supportive. Even if as a kid, I would do the dumbest trick, which now that I look back on some things, she would love it, she would say that’s amazing, or if I’d make the ugliest drawing, she would hang it up. She was amazing.

David Blaine

Within 18 months of my parents’ marriage in 1900, my mother fell in love with an Englishman who would have described himself as a gentleman but who was, in fact, nothing more than a devious adventurer.

Paul Mellon

Above all, there is Mother. She taught me how to love, how to have respect for other people.

Joe Greene

I knew that love was around. I truly believe my mother loved me. But feeling it all the time? I didn’t.

Tyler Perry

I love the classic crooners, but I got that from my mother – she worked in a record store.

Tori Amos

I come from a family of storytellers. Growing up, my father would make up these stories about how he and my mother met and fell in love, and my mother would tell me these elaborately visual stories of growing up as a kid in New York, and I was always so enrapt.

Aja Naomi King

My mother is a proud Brazilian. I love visiting my family in Rio; the city and its people are so vibrant and amazing.

Harley Viera-Newton

My grandsons really love my apple cake, which is from my grandmother’s recipe.

Susan Lucci

I Instagram and tweet a lot about my dog. I think he is one of the most interesting things about my life right now. All my motherly instincts go toward this dog. I love the dog.

Alexandra Daddario

My grandfather’s family used to own a pasta factory in Naples and they would go door-to-door selling their pasta. So his love of food came from his parents, which was then passed down to my mother and then again to me.

Giada De Laurentiis

My stepfather and my mother, I love them to death.

Theo Rossi

If I weren’t performing, I’d be a beauty editor or a therapist. I love creativity, but I also love to help others. My mother was a hairstylist, and they listen to everyone’s problems – like a beauty therapist!

Beyonce Knowles

French women love to shop and prepare food. They love to talk about what they have bought and made. It’s a deeply natural love, but one that is erased in many other cultures. Most French women learn it from their mothers, some from their fathers. But if your parents aren’t French, you can still learn it yourself.

Mireille Guiliano

There’s a character I played in ‘Love in a Cold Climate’ – very like my mother. I asked if I could wear a man’s shoes and hat to feed the chickens: all things from her. In fact, every part I play has got an enormous amount of her in it.

Celia Imrie

We are born of love; Love is our mother.

Rumi

I know many Catholics love God with all their heart. I have genuine respect for anyone who truly has given their life to Christ. We read about Mother Teresa and what a wonderful example she was.

Bill McCartney

The mother-child relationship is paradoxical and, in a sense, tragic. It requires the most intense love on the mother’s side, yet this very love must help the child grow away from the mother, and to become fully independent.

Erich Fromm

My sister and I know our lives could have been different – radically, unthinkably, irretrievably different – if we had not been adopted. We might have found ourselves in homes without love, stability or kindness. We might have found ourselves in care for much longer, without the secure attachment that being cradled in a mother’s arms brings.

Michael Gove

Children love their mothers. Especially with a boy child and his mother, there’s a bond that’s unbreakable.

Tyler Perry

Love matches, so called, have illusion for their father and need for their mother.

Friedrich Nietzsche

One of my earliest memories is of seeing my mother in her beach chair, reading a book under an umbrella by the water’s edge while my sisters and I played beside her. Of all the life lessons she taught me, that is one of my favorites: to take time at a place I love, restore my spirit with books and the beach.

Luanne Rice

I loved my mother and father.

Roger Moore

I make a lot of soups, and I love stews. My mother’s a big foodie. She went to culinary school in New Orleans and has an oyster-artichoke soup recipe that has no cream in it but it tastes so creamy.

Parker Posey

The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.

Theodore Hesburgh

If your mother did not know how to love herself, or your father did not know how to love himself, then it would be impossible for them to teach you to love yourself. They were doing the best they could with what they had been taught as children.

Louise L. Hay

Being a mother is the best thing that ever happened to me. Before you have your first baby you are a girl and then you become a mother. There is no transition into being a woman; you literally become a mum and being a mum means you always love someone else more than yourself and it is an unexplainable situation.

Brigitte Nielsen

One of the reasons I love the law is because I was raised in family – my grandfather was a lawyer, but more importantly, my grandmother was his secretary. And she taught me that lawyers were some of the most civil, most courteous – and in those days, most courtly – people that she knew.

Janet Reno

I think my mother characters have changed a lot since Sasha was born, just because I understand what a hard job it is now, and I’m coming at it from another angle – like you just love and care about this person so much, and just want to protect them from everything.

Sarah Dessen

My favorite thing about motherhood is the outpouring of love that is non-judgmental and beautiful. My daughter just makes me happy, and she motivates me to be a kid again.

Christina Milian

If you don’t show care and love for your children and leave the mothers to take care of all their needs, if they grow up, they will also not consider you.

Yahya Jammeh

The Dalai Lama said that he thinks mother’s love is the best symbol for love and compassion, because it is totally disinterested.

Richard Gere

I basically started performing for my mother, going, ‘Love me!’ What drives you to perform is the need for that primal connection. When I was little, my mother was funny with me, and I started to be charming and funny for her, and I learned that by being entertaining, you make a connection with another person.

Robin Williams

You want to give me chocolate and flowers? That would be great. I love them both. I just don’t want them out of guilt, and I don’t want them if you’re not going to give them to all the people who helped mother our children.

Anne Lamott

My son has godmothers, godfathers, grandparents and so many others in his life who love him as much as I do. They’re there for both of us. I may not have a mate or husband, but I’m definitely not a single parent.

Jill Scott

Some are kissing mothers and some are scolding mothers, but it is love just the same, and most mothers kiss and scold together.

Pearl S. Buck

Basically, my parents messed up because it was the Sixties, and they both had affairs, but they had a great love for each other. I saw that when my father flew over from Los Angeles when he knew my mother was going to die.

Saffron Aldridge

On ‘Love Actually,’ I met Hugh Grant, who is a relative: our great-grandmothers were sisters. He’d call me cousin and ruffle my hair. And it was brilliant working with David Tennant on ‘Doctor Who.’

Thomas Sangster

I want to say a little something that’s long overdue, the disrespect to women has got to be through. To all the mothers and the sisters and the wives and friends, I wanna offer my love and respect till the end.

Adam Yauch

I love being a mother. I loved being a daughter, a sister, a wife. I love being a woman with men. I love having given birth.

Jessica Lange

I love to watch ‘Hoarders.’ My grandmother was a hoarder. My mother’s on her way. I’m an electronics hoarder – I won’t throw any out. I still have my first T-Mobile Sidekick… old VCRs in my garage. It scares me that I’m going to end up being buried under electronics.

Kevin Frazier

Why give chemotherapy or even antibiotics to people with end-stage Alzheimer’s disease? Keep them pain free and clean, love them but don’t automatically try to get the last technology-produced breath from them. Start a preschool program instead or do something about the atrocious state of obesity in our children.

Richard Lamm

Whatever else is unsure in this stinking dunghill of a world a mother’s love is not.

James Joyce

I love anything by Joan Didion. Incidentally, she was one of the local moms when I was growing up in Point Dume. She always reminded me a little bit of my mother, so I feel a great affinity. I love the precision of Didion’s writing. There’s a construction and a craftsmanship to her sentences that’s imbued with so much emotion.

Rob Lowe

If a good mother is one who loves her child more than anyone else in the world, I am not a good mother. I am in fact a bad mother. I love my husband more than I love my children.

Ayelet Waldman

I love a good breakfast – grits and eggs, French toast, turkey bacon. My grandmother on my father’s side used to make tea cakes, and her breakfasts were unbelievable. There was fresh ham, and she would go out to the yard to get fresh eggs. She lived in rural Louisiana, and we’d spend summers with her.

Tyler Perry

My mother has always encouraged me to do what I love. When I started being interested in fashion, she was very supportive, bringing me to see exhibits and buying me books. And when I started my company, she was right there to help me!

Joseph Altuzarra

My mother fed my love of demons, science fiction, and paranormal. She was a devout horror movie fan who kept me up until the wee hours to watch ‘Outer Limits,’ ‘Night Gallery,’ ‘Twilight Zone,’ and ‘Star Trek.’ We lived to watch those reruns.

Sherrilyn Kenyon

I never thought to myself, I’m going to grow up and fall in love with a man or I’m going to fall in love with a woman because my mother is a lesbian.

Ally Sheedy

I truly have a village supporting me. My son has godmothers, godfathers, grandparents and so many others in his life who love him as much as I do. They’re there for both of us. I may not have a mate or husband, but I’m definitely not a single parent.

Jill Scott

I’m very proud to be representing Latinas and women of color, young mothers and full-figured women. I just love that we’re seeing different types of people on screen.

Dascha Polanco

I love art. My sister is an artist and my mother is a painter, so it is very much in the family. I haven’t ever wanted to be a fine artist myself – my sister robbed me of my artistic talent, I think.

Douglas Booth

‘Harry Potter’ made it cool to read children’s fiction, and ‘Twilight’ did the same for a slightly older age group. What I’m seeing is mothers and daughters who love to read the same books.

L.A. Weatherly

My mother taught me how to love. My mom is the most loving person I know.

Channing Tatum

When I was about nine years old, I announced to my mother that I was going to cook Thanksgiving dinner. And I went to the library and got this whole pile of books. I’d love to say it all turned out great. It didn’t. But, sort of, from that point on, whenever there was serious cooking at home, I was the one who did it.

Nathan Myhrvold

I’ve always been fascinated by books. When I was young, my grandfather used to hand out a book – which would be anything from a biography to a classic – to me every week and ask me to write a piece on what I thought about it. On the other hand, my mother used to love reading thrillers and bestsellers.

Ashwin Sanghi

You don’t have to deserve your mother’s love. You have to deserve your father’s.

Robert Frost

My mother danced; she loved the ballet.

Stefanie Powers

I am just like my mother. She raised me to love and take care of animals, especially the ones that need it the most and so I started Eddie’s Rescue Ranch. We take in animals that need extra care and attention and the animals that get left behind.

Kelly Clarkson

Until 45 I can play a woman in love. After 55 I can play grandmothers. But between those ten years, it is difficult for an actress.

Ingrid Bergman

I am not really much interested in talking to adults, although I suppose practically every mother in the kingdom knows my name and my books. It’s their children I love.

Enid Blyton

I love my mother. My mother made sure, her stubbornness – she made sure we was going to eat. She made sure we had Christmases. That was my mother. My father wasn’t there for that.

Tracy Morgan

I inherited my love of gold jewellery from my grandmother.

Aerin Lauder

I love being a mother. My children fill me up in many ways, and inspire me in many ways, but I need a partner in my life, and I think most people feel that way.

Madonna Ciccone

When it comes to babies and children and being a mother, there is so much to talk about. There are products that I keep discovering – endless products! People love to read about these things. And I interview cool mothers, mums with babies, and mums with teenagers… all mums who I admire.

Julia Restoin Roitfeld

A woman has two smiles that an angel might envy, the smile that accepts a lover before words are uttered, and the smile that lights on the first born babe, and assures it of a mother’s love.

Thomas Chandler Haliburton

I was always singing and dancing for my mother when I wasn’t glued to the television watching I Love Lucy or the Carol Burnett Show.

Debra Messing

I love acting. But I love being a mother. To be a full mother and a full person, you have to do what you love, and that’s acting. But I like the best of both worlds.

Tracey Gold

I came from the South with a mother who was hard working, so I love going to work every day.

Kenny Leon

You’ve got a movie where the pro-choice family gives their daughter no choice. The pro-life family murders. What seems to be the good mother, the kind of hippie painter, sweet and cute mother has no love for her daughter really.

Ellen Barkin

‘Yes’ is the mother of all positive words, next to ‘love.’ Maybe ‘love’ is the father of all positive words.

Jason Mraz

Being a single mother was the right thing for me. But I have a tremendous amount of help from my friends. They’re in love with my kids, and my kids are in love with them.

Edie Falco

I’ve always valued the input of the people I love. So in the past, whenever I’d make a decision – what to wear to an event, whether to pursue a job opportunity – I’d consult those closest to me, like my mother, husband, or manager.

Alicia Keys

My Cape women are generally true to type – big hearted, motherly women who love the sea. My other characters, with the exception of the Portuguese, who I occasionally mention as Cape dwellers, are obviously drawn from the city types one sees in everyday life.

Joseph C. Lincoln

I had a career and I came to motherhood late and am not married and have never had such a trusting relationship with a man – and trust is where the real power of love comes from.

Diane Keaton

Motherhood: All love begins and ends there.

Robert Browning

I love motherhood. I certainly wasn’t aware of any mothering instincts until I had babies. I wasn’t a person who desperately wanted to have kids, but you don’t get it until you do it, and, suddenly, this nurturing instinct exists.

Deirdre O’Kane

People get so trapped by their technology now. Real life is so much better. I love talking with my mother and father. We really enjoy staying in and making a meal together. I’m very close with all four of my older sisters as well.

Sammi Hanratty

Fans love Sosa for his exuberance, for the kisses he blows to his mother, wife and four children. He is Slammin’ Sammy, a fairy-tale figure rising from poverty in the Dominican Republic to the 55th floor above Chicago’s Lake Shore Drive.

Bill Dedman

I love my children, but I don’t really want to talk about them. I’m not that much of a freakish middle-aged mother, I’m just very lucky, and there isn’t much more to say. I’d like not to be constantly expected to be a spokesman for things that are part of the natural rhythm of a woman’s life.

Mariella Frostrup

Even though my parents separated, my mother was in love with my father and never re-married.

Nargis Fakhri

The best compliment that has ever been given to me was, I was at the airport one day and a guy came in and said, ‘Lionel, my wife loves you, the kids love you, my mother-in-law loves you, the family loves you.’

Lionel Richie

That always seemed to be the most critical test that a child was confronted with – loss of parents, loss of direction, loss of love. Can you live without a mother and a father?

Maurice Sendak

The inspiration came suddenly again to surrender to the Mother. It was quite unexpected: And so somehow I made a surrender to the Mother. Then I had an experience of overwhelming love. Waves of love sort of flowed into me.

Bede Griffiths

I may adopt. I love children and I do feel the need to take the legacy forward. I am open to it, but emotionally you have to be ready for it. Raising a child is really a huge responsibility. And I should have that time and emotional energy to give to child. How and when is a decision my mother and I will take a few years from now.

Karan Johar

I bought a place in Milan, but Missoni headquarters are out in the country, in Sumirago. My whole family eats out of the same vegetable garden; my mother raises chickens. I love the city, but if you’re always bombarded with stimulation, you get numb to it. I need to get bored to create.

Margherita Missoni

My mother’s love has always been a sustaining force for our family, and one of my greatest joys is seeing her integrity, her compassion, her intelligence reflected in my daughters.

Michelle Obama

Love and honesty are the things that make a good wife and mother.

Jada Pinkett Smith

I’ve always been in love with Melbourne. When I was 12, I was taken into the city by my grandmother to go to the ballet for the first time.

Kerry Greenwood

To breed a winner, let alone at Royal Ascot, is unbelievable. I’ve got four children and they all love the mother. We pat it most days and she’s a lovely mare.

Michael Owen

Since I’m a mother and a wife, I have to have passion or the frustration would win out. But I love managing people. The product is second to managing the people. And marketing to consumers is so challenging because it is evolving constantly.

Andrea Jung

To suggest that you can’t be both a mother who is completely in love with her babies, and a professional who is tough and tenacious, is ridiculous.

Nancy Grace

My mother was the love of my life.

Colman Domingo

Peace is the beauty of life. It is sunshine. It is the smile of a child, the love of a mother, the joy of a father, the togetherness of a family. It is the advancement of man, the victory of a just cause, the triumph of truth.

Menachem Begin

I couldn’t have foreseen all the good things that have followed my mother’s death. The renewed energy, the surprising sweetness of grief. The tenderness I feel for strangers on walkers. The deeper love I have for my siblings and friends. The desire to play the mandolin. The gift of a visitation.

Mary Schmich

My old boyfriend, Warren Beatty, used to say I was a late developer,’ she reflects. ‘He was right. It took me 50 years to find motherhood and unconditional love.’

Diane Keaton

I have so many pieces that once belonged to my mom and both of my grandmothers. All of these pieces are very sentimental, and I love to wear them. I also have many pieces from my father that I probably cherish the most. I love wearing his dress shirts.

Kourtney Kardashian

Mother Firefly is the kind of character I’ve always wanted to play. She’s larger than life, terribly tragic, and capable of a lot of love.

Leslie Easterbrook

I used to love to play dress-up, where you get your mother’s or your grandmother’s dresses and high heels.

Suzanne Farrell

My son has two loving parents and an extended family, whether it’s cousins or stepmothers or boyfriends. My son is surrounded by love.

Bridget Moynahan

I don’t know about changing my perspective, because motherhood is such a glorious blessing and I am very thankful for that. It’s such a beautiful experience. I so strongly recommend it. It’s bliss, love and fulfillment of another level.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

I love my mother. She’s my first love. She has been through a lot and is a sole survivor.

Missy Elliott

Mother’s love is peace. It need not be acquired, it need not be deserved.

Erich Fromm

I’ve taken the love of fashion from my mother, and journalism from my father.

Natalie Massenet

What are Raphael’s Madonnas but the shadow of a mother’s love, fixed in permanent outline forever?

Thomas Wentworth Higginson

I love being around my family. I am very close to my mum, my brother, my grandmother, my aunts – we constantly poke fun at each other, but it’s all done out of love.

Jourdan Dunn

My mother says I was vaccinated with a phonograph needle. I love to talk. I just love to talk.

Jerry Hunt

The birth mother is placing the baby out of love. I still believe that. Well, the ones we’ve dealt with who were actually pregnant, anyway.

Jennifer Gilmore

The balancing act of motherhood and a career, and being a wife, is something that I don’t think I’ll ever perfect, but I love the challenge of it.

Kerri Walsh Jennings

We didn’t know that Mother had gone through a passionate love affair or that Father suffered from severe depression. Mother was preparing to break out of her marriage, Father threatening to take his own life.

Ingmar Bergman

My mother keeps things in perspective for me. She makes me realize that the acting I do and love is no more important than what one of my brothers does-he works in a shoe repair shop. If my career ever tapers off, I’ll go to college.

Dana Hill

Mothers, stay close to your daughters. Earn and deserve their love and respect. Be united with their father in the rearing of your children. Do nothing in your life to cause your daughters to stumble because of your example.

Ezra Taft Benson

I love my mother Ali so much. I’m a momma’s boy. I just have a very cool mom. It’s not as though I had any say in the matter. I’m just really fortunate. She’s the most kind, loving, giving woman.

Hayden Christensen

When I was a child, next to my own mother, no woman that ever lived took as much interest in me, gave me as much motherly advice or seemed to love me more than did Sister Snow. I loved her with all my heart, and loved her hymn, ‘O My Father.’

Heber J. Grant

Sometimes you resent the people you love and need the most. Love is so fascinating in all its forms, and I think everyone who has ever been a mother will relate to this.

Barbra Streisand

Men who love their mothers treat women wonderfully. And they have enormous respect for women.

Ellen Barkin

Every woman’s path is difficult, and many mothers were as equipped to raise children as wire monkey mothers. I say that without judgment: It is, sadly, true. An unhealthy mother’s love is withering.

Anne Lamott

And I love that even in the toughest moments, when we’re all sweating it – when we’re worried that the bill won’t pass, and it seems like all is lost – Barack never lets himself get distracted by the chatter and the noise. Just like his grandmother, he just keeps getting up and moving forward… with patience and wisdom, and courage and grace.

Michelle Obama

We make authentic Maharashtrian food at home. My mother supervises the preparation and the menu every day. She has been doing this since before I was born. I absolutely love the mutton sukka that she makes.

Riteish Deshmukh

Would not the child’s heart break in despair when the first cold storm of the world sweeps over it, if the warm sunlight of love from the eyes of mother and father did not shine upon him like the soft reflection of divine light and love?

Max Muller

I want to reach everybody, from the little girls who are 3 years old, to the grandmother who watches my soap, to a young man in love.

Thalia

It was the early Seventies, and I discovered makeup by going through my mother’s fashion magazines. I fell in love with the photos, the models, the fashion.

Francois Nars

My father has acted in over 700 films. My mother acted in one film, ‘Kismat with Mithun Chakraborty,’ in which my father also had a role. My father fell in love with her and would drive her around in his sports car, and they subsequently got married. My mom is the most beautiful woman and I think she has taken some serum to look young all her life.

Shraddha Kapoor

My parents loved each other. I was raised in a house of total love and respect. My dad worked very hard and my mother was incredibly devoted to him. I can unequivocally, without any peradventure of doubt, tell you that I was raised with the kind of love that we only dream of.

James Woods

Becoming a grandmother brought me back to the things I forgot to love. Nature. Playing. Seeing animals. A new way of looking. A rejuvenation. A cycle of life – things come back to you. The details.

Carine Roitfeld

I love and adore being a mother. It’s the greatest gift I’ve ever been given.

Uma Thurman

Female influence came from my grandmother and my aunt. They would sing Corsican love songs while cleaning the house and dress all in black and say melodramatic things like: ‘I want to die.’

Vincent Cassel

Being a stepmother has worked out very well for me. I love my stepchildren very much.

Philippa Gregory

I have a mother back there in Illinois who is old and feeble. I haven’t seen her this many a year and haven’t been a good son to her, yet I love her better than anything in this life.

Wild Bill Hickok

I love my mother.

Tori Spelling

My mother, whom I love dearly, has continually revised my life story within the context of a complicated family history that includes more than the usual share of divorce, step-children, dysfunction, and obfuscation. I’ve spent most of my adult life attempting to deconstruct that history and separate fact from fiction.

Melissa Gilbert

The mother’s love for her child is very strong in Korean society – almost on the borderline of being an obsession.

Bong Joon-ho

Your most important friendships should be with your own brothers and sisters and with your father and mother. Love your family. Be loyal to them. Have a genuine concern for your brothers and sisters.

Ezra Taft Benson

While my parents never had the time or money to secure university education themselves, they were adamant that their children should. In comfort and in love, we were taught the joys of knowledge and of work well done. I only regret that neither my mother nor my father could live to see the day I would accept the Nobel Prize.

Sheldon Lee Glashow

I love all the gift guides that the magazines put out, whether it’s ‘InStyle’ doing Mother’s Day gifts or color guides, or the ‘O’ magazine Christmas guide.

Dylan Lauren

I have the biggest sweet tooth! You name it, I will eat it. My all-time favorite is my mother’s butter cake. Every time I go home, my mom will already have the cake made because I love it so much. This makes my siblings mad because they think she favors me. I don’t care because she probably does!

Michael Strahan

I have made so many mistakes as a mother. But the one thing that I know I do is I make sure my children know how much I love them and they are absolutely secure in that.

Ayelet Waldman

It is mother’s influence during the crucial formative years that forms a child’s basic character. Home is the place where a child learns faith, feels love, and thereby learns from mother’s loving example to choose righteousness.

Ezra Taft Benson

My grandfather died when I was 12, but I remember the sorrow of my mother. Even now, she’s an old lady, but when she speaks about her father, she looks young. A love like that is undefeated, you know?

Claire Denis

I absolutely love Ireland. It’s one of the most beautiful places on Earth, and I have strong ties here. Both my grandmothers are from Ireland, and I have spent every summer in Bantry since my father, who is an artist, had the romantic idea 20 years ago to buy an old farmhouse on the west coast and renovate it.

Emily Ratajkowski

The biggest surprise, which is also the best, is that I didn’t know I would love motherhood as much as I do.

Deborah Norville

My mother is a very strange woman… She doesn’t understand me in the least and doesn’t love me much either. If she had either love or understanding she would be prepared to make sacrifices.

Egon Schiele

To realize that your mother’s love life has been far more interesting than one’s own is a weird thing to discover.

Anderson Cooper

I have always admired stylishly confident women who dress with great authority. This lifelong love of elegance began with the humble wardrobe of my late grandmother Mrs. Bennie Frances Davis.

Andre Leon Talley

You are a person of the greatest importance when you are a mother of a family. Just do your job right and your kids will love you.

Ethel Waters

My mother asks when I will do some theatre, and there is something about getting your 15 minute call. That is what you become an actor for – performing in front of people and getting the love from the audience.

Jonas Armstrong

I love making movies, but I was ready to rationalize being only a mother if my career never got back on track.

Jane Greer

I used to love sitting on the bathroom floor in my pajamas and watching my mother get ready for an event. She’d stand in front of her vanity and apply bright red and blue makeup – it was the ’80s, you know.

Ivanka Trump

I love my father very much. I attribute so much of the person I am today to the values that he and my mother set for us, and the way they encouraged us every day of our lives to go out and find what we love doing and to fulfill our potential and really be happy.

Ivanka Trump

I stand fearlessly for small dogs, the American Flag, motherhood and the Bible. That’s why people love me.

Art Linkletter

I like to sing because my mother was a singer. She sang to me all the time, so I learned to love singing. I did have a career as little 10-year-old George Benson. I made my first record as a vocalist, but I’ve been playing guitar since I was 9.

George Benson

I love being a mother; I hate being a housewife – the cooking, the laundry – because it takes away time I could be with my kids.

Marcia Gay Harden

My mum is Brazilian and very proud. I’d love to do a Brazilian film. I’ve been brought up in the Brazilian culture. My mum brought me up on my own, I cook Brazilian food, I’ve never spoken a word of English to my mother.

Kaya Scodelario

I love J. F. K. My mother had been a worker on his campaign and adored him.

Tim Matheson

My purpose is to teach and demonstrate what is possible. To demonstrate love of God and good. Remember what my role is as a woman: to be… good. My role as a mother: to teach, support and nurture my offspring. My role as a grandmother: to remind everybody – right where you are, God is.

Iyanla Vanzant

Mother’s Day is a torment if your mother is dead. Valentine’s Day is a torment if you don’t got one. And at some point in our lives, we will be tormented by Valentine’s Day even if we’re relatively lucky in love.

Dan Savage

Dad was the first man I fell in love with. He was a very funny man. He grew up in the East End of London and was very dynamic, and I understood why my mother fell in love with him.

Patsy Kensit

I have a dream of re-creating the fantastic family I grew up in with my brother and my parents. I am lucky that I have such a good image of family life – my father and mother are still in love, still happy.

Caterina Murino

I’ve done stand-up since I was 18 years old, and I absolutely love it, but I used to go onstage, and the audience was my peers. Now I go onstage, and I could be their mother.

Judy Gold

Let every mother realize that she has no greater blessing than the children who have come to her as a gift from the Almighty; that she has no greater mission than to rear them in light and truth, in understanding and love.

Gordon B. Hinckley

Mildred Pierce was capable of great acts of love as a mother.

Kate Winslet

My most memorable meal is every Thanksgiving. I love the food: the turkey and stuffing; the sweet potatoes and rice, which come from my mother’s Southern heritage; the mashed potatoes, which come from my wife’s Midwestern roots; the Campbell’s green-bean casserole; and of course, pumpkin pie.

Douglas Conant

I knew that I was loved. And that’s such an important thing. And, of course, at such an early age, you take it for granted. Of course your parents love you. Of course Mrs. Hubert across the street loves you and your godmother loves you and your grandparents love you.

Jessye Norman

When it came to using elements of your personal life in your work, my mother was the master, or the mistress. There were three or four songs she wrote about my father – songs about failed love.

Rufus Wainwright

I am the woman I grew to be partly in spite of my mother, and partly because of the extraordinary love of her best friends, and my own best friends’ mothers, and from surrogates, many of whom were not women at all but gay men. I have loved them my entire life, even after their passing.

Anne Lamott

My family’s business was actually an amusement park in New Orleans. My grandfather had started that, and my grandmother was a dance maven in New Orleans. It was just the theatricality and the Mardi Gras and the pageantry that I fell in love with at an early age.

Bryan Batt

There are many ways to be a mother. I have a lot of young actors I mentor, and my nieces and my nephews need a lot of love.

Kim Cattrall

Even though I love my mother, I didn’t want to make an idealized portrait of her. I’m fascinated more by her defects – they are funnier than her other qualities.

Pedro Almodovar

Across the board, from my mother to my father to my aunts and uncles, everybody has always given me a lot of love.

Amos Lee

I was born 20 years after my eldest sister. I was the pampered child. That kind of love gives you an almost unbreakable backbone. My mother had three kids before me. She let me be completely free. I just never had anything to beat myself up over.

Christian Louboutin

To the former child migrants, who came to Australia from a home far away, led to believe this land would be a new beginning, when only to find it was not a beginning, but an end, an end of innocence – we apologise and we are sorry. To the mothers who lost the maternal right to love and care for their child – we apologise, and we are sorry.

Malcolm Turnbull

God has given you your country as cradle, and humanity as mother; you cannot rightly love your brethren of the cradle if you love not the common mother.

Giuseppe Mazzini

But after a few minutes of convincing myself that I really wanted to go – telling myself that I love skating and that my coach is there waiting for me – I would get up and go. And my mother would always get up and eat breakfast with me!

Nancy Kerrigan

I definitely live to eat. I love food in every way imaginable, and it does not have to be fancy. Whether we stay in or go out, I like a hardy meal. My grandmother taught me how to cook, and it was all about no fuss and lots of it.

Bill Rancic

My father died when I was seven, leaving a widow and five sons, ranging in age from five to seventeen. My mother was the most highly-disciplined and hardest working person I have ever known, and this, combined with her love and gentleness, enabled her to make a success of each of her children.

Arthur Lewis

I loved my mother, but I don’t like her.

Mickey Rourke

The love of a mother is the veil of a softer light between the heart and the heavenly Father.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

They wrapped her up like a baby burrito to show to Mom. Here were a mother and her daughter and I love them both so much. I couldn’t wait for Courtney to come to the hospital so I could have all my women together.

Al Roker

I never thought I’d be doing poetry books. I never really studied poetry. But the first one I did was after my mother died, and I realized that people sort of think and talk about her style and fashion, but in fact, what made her the person she was was really her love of reading and ideas.

Caroline Kennedy

Call me All-American, but I love Ham and Cheese sandwiches. And not just any old ham and cheese sandwich… My mother’s is the best. I’ve tried many times to make these sandwiches on my own, but it’s never the same.

Andy Roddick

I am happier when I love than when I am loved. I adore my husband, my son, my grandchildren, my mother, my dog, and frankly, I don’t know if they even like me. But who cares? Loving them is my joy.

Isabel Allende

My mother was very family-oriented. And I do love being with my children.

Richard Rogers

I am a mother and I have been divorced, and I love fashion and the Upper East Side.

Kelly Rutherford

I can’t think why mothers love them. All babies do is leak at both ends.

Douglas Feaver

I think I would love to have dinner with Gandhi; Jesus Christ; Mother Theresa; Ingrid Newkirk, the president of PETA; and Madonna.

Jane Velez-Mitchell

One of the greatest gifts my brother and I received from my mother was her love of literature and language. With their boundless energy, libraries open the door to these worlds and so many others. I urge young and old alike to embrace all that libraries have to offer.

Caroline Kennedy

I listened to a lot of stories when I was a kid. My mother told me stories, and I loved them.

John D. Voelker

I don’t wear much make-up in my non-working life, though I love to dress up and put on a face for a special occasion. As I get older, I see less of the fantasy ‘Indian’ self I inherited from my father, and I see my mother looking back at me.

Diana Quick

As a mother, I love the Leapster handheld because it really delivers on educating children while they play. My daughter enjoys it because it’s fun and touches on all of the activities she is interested in – videos, books and art.

Marcia Gay Harden

When a 12-year-old, a 13-year-old, so desperately wants a baby what she’s looking for is the kind of unconditional love a child gives a mother and a mother gives a child.

Ellen Barkin

When my mother and father fell in love, my mother’s family would never accept it.

Euzhan Palcy

I was a drummer in a group called Three Plus. We were performing at a club in New York, and my mother signed me up for tap classes. I fell in love from the door… so you can blame it on my mother.

Savion Glover

I can’t say I ever loved my mother; I admired her.

Humphrey Bogart

I love my mother. I do love her.

Mindy McCready

Since I was sent to an orphanage, and I saw very little of my mother, I can counsel mothers that you shouldn’t abandon your children. Before you bring a child into the world, think deeply about things, so that they lack absolutely nothing, least of all love.

Juan Gabriel

I grew up in a house full of women: my mother, grandmother, three sisters, and two female cats. And I still have the buzz of their conversations in my head. As an adult, I have more female friends than male ones: I just love the way that women talk.

James Patterson

I love cooking, and I can make real good rajma chawal. It is a time consuming process and only for the consumption of a select few very special people. Also, I can make delicious mutton biryani, but I must confess I have stolen the recipe from my mother.

Nimrat Kaur

My mother is not a model. She is not perfect. That awareness is part of learning to love someone. Predicting the actions of someone is an act of love. We persist, even when we get it wrong. That’s the beauty of love.

Daniel Tammet

I told God, ‘I don’t want a man. I don’t want more gold albums. The only thing I want is the love, friendship, and presence of my mother.’ And God gave it to me.

La India

If you’ve never had a mother or a father, you grow up seeking something you’re never going to find, ever. You seek it in love and in people and in beauty.

Gloria Vanderbilt

Nicolette, Kendalle, and Alexandra are my children. Their mother, Cynthia Beck, and I, love them very much.

Gordon Getty

My mother was all about unconditional love, and I don’t think we give that to our patients a lot. At the end of the day, what they really need you to do is to look at them in the eye and say, ‘I’m here for you. I’m going to make sure this works out.’

Mehmet Oz

With compassion you can die for other people, like the mother who can die for her child. You have the courage to say it because you are not afraid of losing anything, because you know that understanding and love is the foundation of happiness. But if you have fear of losing your status, your position, you will not have the courage to do it.

Thich Nhat Hanh

I love my mother so much, because I see the whole of her.

Alexandra Fuller

When we recognise the virtues, the talent, the beauty of Mother Earth, something is born in us, some kind of connection; love is born.

Nhat Hanh

When I was very small, the electricity was turned off because we didn’t pay the bill. I remember sitting by the oil lamp listening to my mother playing ‘Careless Love’ on the piano.

Jools Holland

I love my mother. I reach out to my mother.

Jeanne Phillips

I would not be a good mother. I mean, I love being an aunt to my niece and nephew. And I used to want to, like, adopt 10 kids – because I had friends who were adopted, and I thought that was the coolest thing, to be chosen. But again, my job is too selfish.

Kelly Clarkson

I grew up in a very British family who had been transplanted to Canada, and my grandmother’s house was filled with English books. I was a very early reader, so I was really brought up being surrounded with piles of British books and British newspapers, British magazines. I developed a really great love of England.

Alan Bradley

A mother defends herself with a heart filled with love before doing so with words. I wonder whether there is any love for the church in the hearts of those who pay so much attention to the scandals.

Pope Francis

I love my heritage! I have my mother, who is an Irish-Italian, and my father who is African, so I have the taste buds of an Italian and the spice of an African.

Alicia Keys

I am doing what I love; acting is what I love best after being a mother.

Karisma Kapoor

You think you know what love is – until you have a child and discover that unconditional mother love.

Halle Berry

When I asked my mother why crowds shouted my name and said ‘We love you,’ she would dust it off by saying, ‘Your work makes them happy.’ She never let it go to my head.

Shirley Temple

I’m not the kind of person who needs to be a mother no matter what. Life brings you people. Maybe I’ll nurture someone who’s not my child, like a friend, or an actor I’m working with who needs some love.

Heather Graham

Mothers are the people who love us for no good reason. And those of us who are mothers know it’s the most exquisite love of all.

Maggie Gallagher

I love to sing with my daughter. Audiences like it because a mother-daughter pairing is a curiosity.

Montserrat Caballe

One of the things I would have loved to have had was a family that worked better together, although I love my mother and father to bits.

Andy Murray

I just ultimately wanted to be a mother. I love children.

Katherine Heigl

My love of baking might have originated with my grandmother. She had a lemon tree growing in her backyard, and one of my favorite memories is of picking lemons together and then baking lemon bars.

Lisa Graff

You initially become funny as a kid because you’re looking for attention and love. Psychologists think that’s all to do with mother abandonment. I think John Cleese has his depressions, and Terry Gilliam’s the same. All of us together make one completely insane person.

Eric Idle

When I was a child I had a nightmare, and in the morning, I asked my mother and father, ‘If I kill someone, would you still love me?’ My parents were very preoccupied with this, but I think I’m not the only one to ask for that – not love, but absolute fidelity.

Claire Denis

Most of the kids that I meet in the street are serious hardened criminals that I meet in the street, never had a mother and a father to love them, to protect them, to teach them right from wrong and lead them out of crime and gangs and stuff like that.

Steven Seagal

I love my mother dearly, but it wouldn’t be suitable for me to live with her all the time.

Keith Emerson

I’ve just learned that love is a very fleeting thing, so we – then we have it; we need to hold on to it but hold on to it in a gracious fashion. Not in the smothering but more so just a covering kind of love.

Betty Wright

Our society loves raw character; we love raw women. We don’t love our mother because she is hot and sexy: we love our mother because she is our mother. We love our granny because she is our granny. We value her. We don’t remember anyone’s face from our childhood; we love our granny’s face.

Kangana Ranaut

My mother taught me to love my work. I learned everything about business from her.

David Geffen

I love being a grandmother. That feeling you have for your own child – you don’t ever think it will be replicated, and I did wonder if I would have to ‘pretend’ with my grandchildren. But my heart was taken on day one.

Joanna Lumley

I really love Scrabble. I played it with my mother growing up. We took it everywhere with us. We didn’t know then about the two letter words. Who knew that AA, or more controversially, ZA, or QI were words? We were a games family generally.

Meg Wolitzer

What I love most about Mother’s Day is that I am acknowledged and honored for being a mother.

Liya Kebede

The picture has made its million back in four months; I have been overwhelmed by letters, hundreds of them, literally, begging me in my next production not to swing over the shallow trash of mother love, father love, sister love, brother love.

Erich von Stroheim

My first memories of music are of my mother playing Dominican music in the house because my parents love to dance. They love to throw parties and dance, so there was a lot Latin music in the house.

Cyrille Aimee

People who have not done their research on me do not know that I am European, born in Copenhagen, Denmark to an Italian father from Napoli and a mother from Alabama who was singing opera and went to Europe, met my dad, fell in love, and then moved back to Rome, where I was raised, between Rome and Hamburg.

Giancarlo Esposito

My love for artichokes comes from when I was very young. My mother and father would slice the hearts and fry them, and they would be crispy around the leaves and tender at the base.

Jose Andres

I’m one of those hovering mothers and I know it’s really important to have an independent child, so I’m trying to back off, but it’s hard. I love him so much, and he’s so funny and cute to me.

Selma Blair

I love children and I love family and I love that interaction. Because I had a really close relationship with my mother, I understand that deep powerful love, and it’s so beautiful. To be a mother to a child is the most brilliant gift; it’s gorgeous.

Alicia Keys

My mother was a stay-at-home mom until I was about 11, when she got a job – and it was like a light came on inside her. It’s not wrong to be passionate about your career. When you love what you do, you bring that stimulation back to your family.

Allison Pearson

My mother actually does most of my shopping for me. I love fashion, but I don’t really love shopping.

Danielle de Niese

For me, and this may not be everybody, but because I do love country music so much, there’s such a feeling of home in Nashville, especially because it’s such a small town. You bring up one song, everybody knows who wrote it, everybody knows their mother and what their cell number is, and all of the stories.

Garrett Hedlund

My mother is an ordained minister. I’m a Muslim. She didn’t do back flips when I called her to tell her I converted 17 years ago. But I tell you now, you put things to the side, and I’m able to see her, and she’s able to see me. We love each other. The love has grown.

Mahershala Ali

When we recognise the virtues, the talent, the beauty of Mother Earth, something is born in us, some kind of connection, love is born.

Thich Nhat Hanh

I love to hang out with my friends and go to the movies. My mom and I are involved in the Mother/Daughter Organization – national charity work. Whenever I get free time, we volunteer. It’s an organization so mothers and daughters can spend time together while volunteering.

Hailee Steinfeld

My father, my mother, and then my father was always on top of me – ‘Keep your nose clean. Do you love what you’re doing?’ ‘Yes.’ ‘Then be aware, or you’re going to lose it.’

Paul Anka

Motherhood is tough. If you just want a wonderful little creature to love, you can get a puppy.

Barbara Walters

I’d love to own a bakery at some point. My grandmother could help me run it – she is an amazing baker! I’d also love to do a cookbook.

Adriana Trigiani

A compliment is something like a kiss through a veil.

Victor Hugo

Thelonious Monk was one of the musicians I most connected with early on. I’m a huge Betty Carter fan, and the way that Abbey Lincoln and Shirley Horn grew immensely from the time they were young is so inspirational.

Cecile McLorin Salvant

Every charitable act is a stepping stone toward heaven.

Henry Ward Beecher

Give light, and the darkness will disappear of itself.

The books that help you most are those which make you think that most. The hardest way of learning is that of easy reading; but a great book that comes from a great thinker is a ship of thought, deep freighted with truth and beauty.

Pablo Neruda

I try not to put anything political on the forefront of what I’m trying to do creatively. At the same time, I do think it’s wonderful when I hear people say that it’s inspirational that I’m an Indian woman on camera. My life is very diverse, and my friends are a diverse group of people.

Mindy Kaling

Space is an inspirational concept that allows you to dream big.

Peter Diamandis

Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It’s perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we’ve learned something from yesterday.

Thought is the wind, knowledge the sail, and mankind the vessel.

Augustus Hare

Health is the greatest possession. Contentment is the greatest treasure. Confidence is the greatest friend. Non-being is the greatest joy.

We all obviously need others to look up to, and be inspirational to us. Ford did a great job as far as putting the presidency back where it belonged, getting the trust back after Nixon. And President Reagan has been one of the most influential presidents.

Steve Garvey

I believe in the city as a natural human environment, but we must humanize it. It’s art that will re-define public space in the 21st Century. We can make our cities diverse, inspirational places by putting art, dance and performance in all its forms into the matrix of street life.

Antony Gormley

Who would have thought that a tap-dancing penguin would outpoint James Bond at the box office? And deserve to? Not that there’s anything wrong with ‘Casino Royale.’ But ‘Happy Feet’ – written and directed by George Miller – is a complete charmer, even if, in the way of most family fare, it can’t resist straying into the Inspirational.

Robert Gottlieb

Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.

Francis of Assisi

We are here to make another world.

W. Edwards Deming

If someone says ‘grunge’ or ‘punk,’ you know what the sound is, but if you say ‘No Wave,’ it’s kind of mysterious. That was the most interesting part and should have been the most inspirational thing about it… here’s this collective sonic insanity, and none of it sounds anything alike.

Lydia Lunch

Live your beliefs and you can turn the world around.

Henry David Thoreau

I used to make up stuff in my bio all the time, that I used to be a professional ice-skater and stuff like that. I found it so inspirational. Why not make myself cooler than I am?

Carter Burwell

The glow of one warm thought is to me worth more than money.

Thomas Jefferson

I’ve been known to write 10 pages a day for 10 days running before I take a breath. I am not a disciplined writer. I’m one of those people who laughingly call themselves inspirational writers, which basically means someone who has no control over their own creative process.

I had hoped when my life was chronicled, it would be an inspirational story.

Rodney Atkins

Nurture your minds with great thoughts. To believe in the heroic makes heroes.

Benjamin Disraeli

‘Do What You Gotta Do’ is a positive, inspirational song that says no matter what it is; whether you’re up against challenges or trying to get your dreams and aspirations met, you should do what whatever you have to do shy of killing yourself or someone else.

Angie Stone

When I was working at the Sprint store, I got laid off. I was bummed out, but I stayed positive. I used the money I had earned while working there to make my first album. Without that job, maybe ‘Corazon Sin Cara’ would never had been made. It’s a very inspirational story.

Prince Royce

I said to the almond tree, ‘Friend, speak to me of God,’ and the almond tree blossomed.

I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.

Jimmy Dean

Hope is but the dream of those who wake.

Matthew Prior

In sports teams, apart from talk of sporting prowess and the imparting of inspirational thought, an extraordinary amount of time is spent discussing, and flaunting, material possessions.

Loretta Young

Bobby Keys

Noble deeds that are concealed are most esteemed.

William Bartram

Reach for the stars.

Christa McAuliffe

Better to be called something positive and inspirational than something negative.

Donnie Yen

I think ‘Heroes of Cosplay’ will show a lot of the positive things, like how much effort it takes to make a costume. These people on the show aren’t taking shortcuts. As long as that effort gets through to the viewers, we will be inspirational. Then there will be people who watch the show that want to get in and hands-on make outfits.

Yaya Han

We convince by our presence.

Walt Whitman

The most beautiful thing in the world is, of course, the world itself.

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.

Rabindranath Tagore

Personally, I can’t see the appeal in trekking down to D.C. for a networking extravaganza, even if it is built around a special moment in American history. While I find the election of Barack Obama inspirational, I don’t have a desire to memorialize it with overly effusive celebration.

Jamie Johnson

I grew up in a bookless house – my parents didn’t read poetry, so if I hadn’t had the chance to experience it at school I’d never have experienced it. But I loved English, and I was very lucky in that I had inspirational English teachers, Miss Scriven and Mr. Walker, and they liked us to learn poems by heart, which I found I loved doing.

Carol Ann Duffy

We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone.

Your big opportunity may be right where you are now.

Napoleon Hill

Brand is not a product, that’s for sure; it’s not one item. It’s an idea, it’s a theory, it’s a meaning, it’s how you carry yourself. It’s aspirational, it’s inspirational.

Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.

Hosea Ballou

My tastes and inspirational artists were always rather eclectic and diverse.

A man has to learn that he cannot command things, but that he can command himself; that he cannot coerce the wills of others, but that he can mold and master his own will: and things serve him who serves Truth; people seek guidance of him who is master of himself.

James Allen

I’m very fond of the British cinema. I’m a big fan of Martin Campbell and Daniel Craig. I actually find Daniel very inspirational, especially on the physical side of things. He really inspired me to get back into shape when I started to add on a few pounds. I think he’s a great role model.

Steven Bauer

In oneself lies the whole world and if you know how to look and learn, the door is there and the key is in your hand. Nobody on earth can give you either the key or the door to open, except yourself.

Jiddu Krishnamurti

At the end of the day, the one commonality that both Hindi cinema and Hollywood share is that they are full of talented and inspirational people. Outside of this, there are many differences, from the scheduling and rehearsal to promotion and directing techniques.

Nargis Fakhri

Inside, I’ve got a real purist desire and dream about the music. I like the idea of being able to carve out a kind of magical, colourful, artistic, inspirational life. And the reality just turns out to be quite different, working with the business to bring this thing you have created into the world.

Damien Rice

A human being has so many skins inside, covering the depths of the heart. We know so many things, but we don’t know ourselves! Why, thirty or forty skins or hides, as thick and hard as an ox’s or bear’s, cover the soul. Go into your own ground and learn to know yourself there.

Meister Eckhart

Be faithful to that which exists within yourself.

Andre Gide

I am so fresh in soul and spirit that life gushes and bubbles around me in a thousand springs.

Georgia O’Keeffe

My father, Oliver Hynes, was an educator. He was originally just a teacher, a very good one, but then he was promoted to be in charge of education for the entire area. He was always an inspirational teacher. He was my big personal supporter, always coming here for the Tony Awards. My mother, Carmel, was a homemaker.

Garry Hynes

President Obama called for a ‘we’ nation in his Inauguration Address. Art convenes. It is not just inspirational. It is aspirational. It pricks the walls of our compartmentalized minds, opens our hearts and makes us brave. And that’s what we need most in our country today.

Anna Deavere Smith

The leaders who we admire who have been able to bring great change in the past – Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela – they’re all inspirational religious leaders and smart tacticians. It would be nice to find the Muslim Gandhi, wouldn’t it?

Dennis C. Blair

This CD became something of a personal journey for me. The tone of the whole CD is uplifting and inspirational. It’s an upper. We have enough downers in the world.

Roma Downey

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.

John F. Kennedy

If there were no night, we would not appreciate the day, nor could we see the stars and the vastness of the heavens. We must partake of the bitter with the sweet. There is a divine purpose in the adversities we encounter every day. They prepare, they purge, they purify, and thus they bless.

James E. Faust

Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.

Max Weinberg

Since we launched the original ‘Pop Idol’ in England, I’ve remained close with Simon Fuller. Working as executive producer on ‘American idol’ for its first seven years not only was an inspirational journey into the heart of American pop culture, it opened my eyes to the untapped potential of the incredibly dynamic young people in this world.

Nigel Lythgoe

Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.

Buddha

A #2 pencil and a dream can take you anywhere.

Joyce Meyer

Queen Elizabeth II

Every man’s life is a fairy tale written by God’s fingers.

Hans Christian Andersen

I am never without my lyric book. If anything inspirational happens, I have it there so nothing’s forgotten.

Gabrielle Aplin

Cara Delevingne

We sing inspirational songs, songs of praise and worship, and about how good and how big God is. We are magnifying the Lord.
