My family - my husband, my daughters, my grandchildren, my great-grandchildren, all of them - are the most important thing in the world to me.

I have never once regretted missing a business opportunity so that I could be with my children and grandchildren.
I'm most proud of the longevity of my marriage, my kids, and my grandchildren. If you don't have that, you really don't have very much.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
If this world is going to be a better place for our grandchildren and great-grandchildren, it will be women who make it so.
My mother said, Don't worry abot what people think now. Think about whether your children and grandchildren will think you've done well.
For the sake of our health, our children and grandchildren and even our economic well-being, we must make protecting the planet our top priority.
I play with my grandchildren. I tend to my garden, which I love. Of course, I love to read, and family is really what it's all about.
Why do grandparents and grandchildren get along so well? The mother.
I really don't have any weaknesses. I do have areas of my life that I am working on to grow, heal and evolve. Giving myself permission to rest is an area I am working on. Not rescuing my children and grandchildren is another area.
People ask how I can be a conservative and still want higher taxes. It makes my head spin, and I guess it shows how old I am. But I thought that conservatives were supposed to like balanced budgets. I thought it was the conservative position to not leave heavy indebtedness to our grandchildren.
My goals have changed throughout my life. At one time it was winning awards, selling out concert dates, selling more albums than anyone else. Now, my goals are to see my grandchildren grown, live a long and healthy life with my family and friends and travel the world.
I'm not as concerned about me. What's happened to me has been great. I got five great kids. Seventeen grandchildren.

You better arm yourselves to answer your children's and grandchildren's questions... no matter what the question is... without being judgmental.
No mother wants to hear her son say he's gay. Those two words rip the picture of a daughter-in-law and grandchildren into pieces. I felt sorry for my mom and wanted her to know everything was going to be all right. But then she said, 'I don't really care, Johnny, as long as I know that you are going to be happy.'
I hear music that comes out of need, out of grief, sorrow, suffering and out of overcoming these things, as well. That journey to freedom still goes on today. It's an incremental change, the culmination of many events in your own life and the lives of your children and grandchildren.
