Family Quotes A-Z by Author|
To me, money is a means to do good. I reached
a point in my life where I had enjoyed tremendous
business success that afforded my family
everything we could possibly want. My wife
and I then decided that we could use our
wealth to make a difference. So we created
the Broad Foundations to do four things:
to improve urban public education, to support
innovative scientific and medical research,
to foster art appreciation for audiences
worldwide and to support civic initiatives
in Los Angeles.
Broad - Money
While I am proud of a number of accomplishments,
there are real costs to being unreasonable.
Long hours. Too little time with family.
A near incapacity for, as they say, stopping
and smelling the roses.
Broad - Success
Family, religion, friends.. these are the
three demons you must slay if you wish to
succeed in business.
Burns - Family
The resentment that criticism engenders can demoralize employees, family
members and friends, and still not correct the situation that has been condemned.
Carnegie - Criticism
Personally, I have been very impressed by the slow food movement. It is about
celebrating the culture of food, of sharing the extraordinary knowledge, developed
over millennia, of the traditions involved with quality food production, of the
sheer joy and pleasure of consuming food together. Especially within the context
of family life, this has to be one of the highest forms of cultural activity.
Charles - Food
No government can love a child, and no policy can substitute for a family's care.
But at the same time, government can either support or undermine families as they
cope with moral, social and economic stresses of caring for children.
Rodham Clinton - Government
On one level, going bust didn't bother me.
It was the 80s, and there wasn't the stigma
about bankruptcy that you might think. My
mates weren't bothered. My dad was in business..
he knew that it happened, too. He loaned
me the money to bail me out, and I got a
loan from the bank to pay him back.
Cowell - Bankrupt
I can indeed hardly see how anyone ought
to wish Christianity to be true; for if
so the plain language of the text seems
to show that the men who do not believe,
and this would include my Father, Brother,
and almost all my best friends, will be
everlastingly punished. And this is a damnable
Darwin - Truth
Start by scrapping the tax code. Don't fiddle
with it. Junk it. Throw it out. Bury it.
Replace it with a pro-growth, pro-family
tax cut that lowers tax rates to 17% across
the board and expands exemptions for individuals
and children so that a family of four would
pay no taxes on the first $36,000 of income.
Forbes - Tax
I'm serious when I do my work. I'm not serious when I'm home with my kids.
Gates - Work
Having kids has been a fantastic thing for me. It's meant that I'm a little
more balanced. In my twenties I worked massively, hardly took vacation at all.
Now, I, with the help of my wife, I'm always making sure I've got a good balance
of how I spend my time.
Gates - Work
It's all about quality of life and finding a happy balance between work and
friends and family.
Green - Happiness
- Work -
It's not enough to make time for your children. There are certain stages
in their lives when you have to give them the time when they want it. You can't
run your family like a company. It doesn't work.
Grove - Family
Follow your own particular dreams. We are handed a life by peers, parents
and society, you can do that or follow your own dreams. Life is short, be a dreamer
but be a practical person.
Hefner - Dreams
I didn't want to repeat my parents' life. I saw in their lives a routine
and a lack of dreaming, a lack of the possibilities, a lack of passion. And I
didn't want to live without passion.
Hefner - Life
The mission statement of my company, Kathy Ireland Worldwide, is to find
solutions for families, especially busy moms. I'm reaching out to busy moms because
that's what I am. That's what I know, and I know this woman has been underserved.
Ireland - Customers
- Help -
I work with wonderful people who support me. And, my beliefs are that the
business needs to serve the family rather than the family serve the business.
Ireland - Help
- Work -
My family gave me values that have sustained me through situations that would
challenge any person. My personal relationship with the Lord inspires me in all
Ireland - Family
When you're a self-made man you start very early in life. In my case it was
at nine years old when I started bringing income into the family. You get a drive
that's a little different, maybe a little stronger, than somebody who inherited.
Kerkorian - Motivational
The right to private property meant at the same time the right and duty to
be personally concerned about your own well-being, to be personally concerned
about your family's income, to be personally concerned about your future. This
is hard work.
Khodorkovsky - Money
They talk about how hard coaches work. They work 18, 20 hours a day. They
sleep on a couch. They don't come home. You know, that's not the hard job. The
hard job is a coach's wife, believe me. The job of the coach's wife, she has to
be mother, father, driver, doctor, nurse, coach, everything, because the coach
is out there working.
Madden - Jobs
- Hard Work
As I look back now on my coaching career, I think of my family, I think of
the days that we spent together. I say this to coaches everywhere: If you ever
have a chance to take your kids with you, take them. Don't miss that opportunity.
Because when it's all over and done with, when you look back, those are going
to be your fondest memories.
Madden - Jobs
I really wanted to retire and rest and spend
more time with my children, my grandchildren
and of course with my wife. But the problems
are such that for anybody with a conscience
who can use whatever influence he may have
to try to bring about peace, it's difficult
to say no.
Mandela - Peace
Self actualizing people have a deep feeling
of identification, sympathy, and affection
for human beings in general. They feel kinship
and connection, as if all people were members
of a single family.
Maslow - Self
Help - Feelings
Success means different things in different parts of my life, but overall if I
have to define ultimately what success means.. the bottom line.. then for me its
if the family is healthy and happy.
Phil - Success
In my family, there were Kei and Minoru
and then there were the rest. Everyone in my family is very opinionated and everyone
tried to join the debate. But by the time my turn came, there was nothing left
to say. I couldn't keep pace, so I looked to do my own things.
Mori - Family
My parents shared not only an improbable love, they shared an abiding faith in
the possibilities of this nation. They would give me an African name, Barack,
or blessed, believing that in a tolerant America your name is no barrier to success.
They imagined me going to the best schools in the land, even though they weren't
rich, because in a generous America you don't have to be rich to achieve your
Obama - Encouragement
Policies that support families aren't political
issues. They're personal. They're the causes
I carry with me every single day.
Obama - Politics
I am convinced that material things can
contribute a lot to making one's life pleasant,
but, basically, if you do not have very
good friends and relatives who matter to
you, life will be really empty and sad and
material things cease to be important.
Rockefeller - Wealth
According to an old French motto, Noblesse
oblige - one must live up to one's name.
The Rothschilds' condition of life has imposed
on them a second motto: Richesse oblige
- one must live up to one's fortune.
de Rothschild - Wealth
I grew up in a working class family where
there was no health insurance. I saw first
hand the fracturing of the American dream
and the bitterness that comes when there
is no hope and a lot of despair. So I wanted
to build the company, in a sense, that my
father never got a chance to work for.
Schultz - Employee
Everything I have, my career, my success, my family, I owe to America.
Schwarzenegger - America
We have to show leadership in protecting our environment so that we have
a future for our children and grandchildren.
Schwarzenegger - Environmental
My mother was very involved with me. And we had a dialogue constantly. And
it was like an umbilical cord. As long as the words were flowing back and forth
we were connected and feeding each other. And I probably grew up very afraid of
losing that connection.
Stern - Family
The early Rockefellers
made their wealth from being in certain
businesses and remained personally very
wealthy. Tatas were different in the
sense the future generations were not so
wealthy. They were involved in the business
but most of the family wealth was put into
trust and most of the family did not in
fact did not enjoy enormous wealth.
Tata - Family
It is easy to love the people far away.
It is not always easy to love those close
to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice
to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness
and pain of someone unloved in our own home.
Bring love into your home for this is where
our love for each other must start.
Teresa - Challenges
Let us not be satisfied with just giving
money. Money is not enough, money can be
got, but they need your hearts to love them.
So, spread your love everywhere you go.
Teresa - Inspirational
Everybody today seems to be in such a terrible rush, anxious for greater
developments and greater riches and so on, so that children have very little time
for their parents. Parents have very little time for each other, and in the home
begins the disruption of peace of the world.
Teresa - Challenges
I run my operation like a family business. I sign every check, every receipt,
Im not tough, but Im strong.
Trump - Family
I like to live. I like to dance. I like to eat. I like to work and I like
my family. I like to enjoy. And.. knock on wood.. its nice that I can live
Trump - Family
- Life -
Family is the root of all that is good in our lives, and I am so grateful
Trump - Family
Becoming wealthy is not a matter of how much you earn, who your parents are,
or what you do.. it is a matter of managing your money properly.
Whittaker - Rich
At home we have always regarded the dining table as the prime seat of learning.
We planned it so it was impossible to see or hear a TV from the table, and it
has paid dividends in the volume of ideas that have been shared over the evening
Whittaker - Family
I think women have proved themselves beyond
a shadow of doubt that they are as capable
and as confident in delivering results.
The "B" word.. babies or biology
is a complicated one. Because it doesn't
mean that women can't do the work, it means
that women have a point, a period in their
life of maybe.. depending on how many children
they have, of 5 to 10 years where they have
a lessened amount of availablity. And in
many many corporate settings you have to
be available for face time in the office
and travel. And when you make the choice
to have a kid you also make the choice to
be not available as much.
Welch - Woman
