Family Quotes A-Z by Author 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.
Eli Broad - Money - Business - Success - Philanthropy - Rich - Family - Wealth - Generous - Education - Research - Art

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.
Eli Broad - Success - Proud - Accomplishments
- Family - Hard Work

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.
Prince Charles - Food - Farming
- Consumer - Knowledge - Family - Cultural

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.
Hillary 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.
Simon Cowell - Bankrupt - Friends - Business - Banks - Loan - Family - Money

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 doctrine.
Charles Darwin - Truth - Christianity - Belief - Family - Punishment - Control

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.
Steve Forbes - Tax - Family

I'm serious when I do my work. I'm not serious when I'm home with my kids.
Bill Gates - Work - Family

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.
Bill Gates - Work - Family - Time

It's all about quality of life and finding a happy balance between work and friends and family.
Philip Green - Happiness - Work - Life

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.
Andrew Grove - Family - Companies

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.

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.
Hugh Hefner - Life

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.

- Ambition - Encouragement - Strength

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.

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.
John Madden - Jobs - Hard Work
- Family

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.
John Madden - Jobs - Family


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.
Nelson Mandela - Peace - Compassion - Retirement

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.
Akira Mori - Family - Opinions


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 potential.

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.
Howard Schultz - Employee - Family - America - Inspirational - Poverty - Companies - Hope

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.
Howard Stern - Family - Fear


The early Rockefellers made their wealth from being in certain businesses and remained personally very wealthy. Tata’s were different in the sense the future generations were not so wealthy.

Ratan Tata - Family - Business - Wealth

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.
Mother Teresa - Challenges - Love - Philanthropy - 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.
Noel Whittaker - Rich - Family - Planning

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 meal.
Noel Whittaker - Family - Planning - Learning - Ideas


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.
Suzy Welch - Woman - Confidence - Family - Time - Commitment
