Lessons from my mother famous quotes 7
I was raised by a single mother who made a way for me. She used to scrub floors 
as a domestic worker, put a cleaning rag in her pocketbook and ride the subways 
in Brooklyn so I would have food on the table. 
But she taught me as I walked her to the subway that life is about not where 
you start, but where you're going. That's family values.

"The most important thing she taught me was to never want to look like 
someone else or be someone else. She was a ballerina, and she made me dance,

She felt that if you knew how to own and respect what you're given naturally, 
there's nothing more beautiful."

in society, in work, but don't let anybody change your mind.”
