105471. I don’t know what the future holds, but I know that God holds tomorrow, so it is exciting. Even when I have hard things happen, He loves me so big, so much. I come through it and I grow from it, because He has got me. – Barbara Mandrell

105472. I am loving being Momma. I really, really am. – Barbara Mandrell

105473. By our Heavenly Father and only because of God, only because of God. We’re like other couples. We do not get along perfectly; we do not go without arguments and, as I call them, fights, and heartache and pain and hurting each other. But a marriage is three of us. – Barbara Mandrell

105592. For me, there’s a fine line between telling a story that’s fictional with lots of details and then removing yourself too much from it, so it’s bloodless, a little too fictional. – Aimee Mann

105593. One of the things I’ve really gotten past in the last couple of years is the idea of being made uncomfortable by the way things appear, rather than how things are. Clearly in this business you have to contend with a lot of that. – Aimee Mann

105597. In the ’70s, everybody thought drugs were just good times. People didn’t really know about drug addiction, or that such a thing existed. When I grew up in the ’70s I thought you had to take drugs. It was almost like I didn’t think you had a choice. – Aimee Mann

105598. It really doesn’t matter to me what people say about me anymore. – Aimee Mann
