Mother to Daughter

- Regina King
I have to be a teacher to my daughters.
- Carnie Wilson

My mother was a good recreational cook, but what she basically believed about cooking was that if you worked hard and prospered, someone else would do it for you.

My mother said I was a clingy kid until I was about four. I also remember that from the age of eight she and I fought almost every day.

- Sophie Ellis Bextor
My mom taught me not to talk about money.

My mother taught me about the power of inspiration and courage, and she did it with a strength and a passion that I wish could be bottled.
- Carly Fiorina
My relationship with my mom is so amazing. We never got to have that stage that people go through, like when you're 13 and you think you're too cool for your parents. When you're embarrassed by them and stuff. We never went through that because I was constantly working and she constantly had to be there.
- Hilary Duff
My mom can't defend herself to the world. She is such an amazing woman, with such an open heart. It's a real hard line, and I crossed it. I took everyone's life story and assumed it would be a great thing to put on screen. I was being selfish and I feel so horrible about it. I feel so guilty.

My mom was the picture of the blue-collar mom: Two and three and four jobs to make sure that me and my sister never needed, that was her thing.
