Mercedes Schlapp
People are so complex and multidimensional that raising someone to ‘hero’ status is too great a simplification.
Dalia Mogahed

Julie Sweet
You have to really respect what your kids are doing with their kids and how they’re raising them. You can’t push your way into areas where you shouldn’t be saying anything. You have to always remember they’re not your own kids. Play with them, love them, spoil them to death – then hand them back.

Ted Yoho
I am good at raising money.

Jennie Garth
As long as we, in the United States, continue to insist that our politicians have to spend all of their time raising millions of dollars for television ads, it will be corrupt. If we leave it up to the politicians to clean up lobbying and finance reform, nothing is going to change.
Kevin Spacey
There’s a lot of neuroscience now raising the question, ‘Is all the intelligence in the human body in the brain?’, and they’re finding out that, no, it’s not like that. The body has intelligence itself, and we’re much more of an organic creature in that way.

Jesse Ventura

Hailey Baldwin
I see city finances within the context of an economic strategy… We are going to solve our financial problems by growing the economy, and I have rejected some corners that have called for a slash-and-burn approach, and I’ve rejected others who have called for raising taxes and leaving government as is.

The quality of life is so different in France. There is the possibility of living a simple life. I would never contemplate raising my daughter in LA. I would never raise any child there.
Johnny Depp
Teaching is a truly noble profession. It’s sad the amount of responsibility that teachers have today. They’re not only teaching kids: they’re raising kids, policing kids – and they don’t make a lot of money.
Jesse L. Martin
After raising twins, you get organized.
Scott Ellis
My domination is getting so strong that it’s starting to become much clearer now who’s the best featherweight, but I’ve been raising this debate for a long time.
Patricio Freire
I support raising the federal minimum wage. What I’ve said is I don’t want San Diego to be at a competitive disadvantage, particularly for our small businesses and our entrepreneurs to have one set of wages for San Diego and a different set of wages for surrounding cities.
Kevin Faulconer
Instead of helping a lucky few to escape disadvantage, a Labour government will aim to abolish poverty completely and create a more equal society, raising the living standards and well-being of all.
Angela Rayner
Our need for certainty in an endeavor as uncertain as raising children makes explicit ‘how-to-parent’ strategies both seductive and dangerous.
Brene Brown
Europe's budget plans are better designed: countries fr

Europe’s budget plans are better designed: countries from France to Greece are raising retirement ages; others, from Britain to Germany, have created new organisations and rules to encourage fiscal probity. But Europe risks overkill.
Zanny Minton Beddoes
You should have the same rules for boys and girls at homes. You should ask them the same questions because there is a defect in the way we are raising our kids. You have to give them the same liberties, the same treatment, and the same freedom.
Mahima Chaudhry
We are so fortunate that our new and existing investors share our vision of making Hyperloop the world’s first new mode of transportation in over a century. We initially targeted $50 million and ended up raising $85 million instead.
Shervin Pishevar
Nevertheless, there is another threat on the horizon. I see this threat in environmentalism which is becoming a new dominant ideology, if not a religion. Its main weapon is raising the alarm and predicting the human life endangering climate change based on man-made global warming.
Vaclav Klaus
Early in my career, I didn’t want to disappoint my colleagues, clients, or family. So I said yes to everything. This ended up raising my stress level and shortchanging everyone else – including myself – because I couldn’t give anyone 100 percent of my time, nor could I pay close attention.
John Rampton
My cats, Jacob and Frank, mean the world to me, and by partnering once again with Fresh Step with the power of Febreze, I’m raising awareness for its Million Meow Mission to help every shelter cat find a forever home.
Hannah Simone
You spend some time raising a child in London, carrying it around on one side of your body – it puts your back out!
Matthew Goode
My grandfather did a lot of things in his life. What he was most proud of was raising his family.
Tagg Romney
Despite broad public support, raising the minimum wage is always difficult owing to the disproportionate influence that wealthy firms and donors have in Congress.
Angus Deaton
I think everyone around me played a part in raising me; there isn’t one individual I could pick out – it was more a case of it taking the whole village to raise the child.
Joseph Fiennes
I have no issue with raising minimum wage, but then the customer can’t say to us, ‘Why are you raising your prices?’
Tilman J. Fertitta
It’s very difficult for me to do fund raising for my own organization if I’m working for other companies because sponsors will say, ‘Well, hey, man, if she’s doing a ballet for Ballet Theatre, we’ll give money to Ballet Theatre.’
Twyla Tharp
I signal with an independent label, Continuum. After that I put out a totally independent record, sold fourteen thousand of them from my basement, bought a house, started raising my kid, made a decent living.
Kid Rock
Biological fathers are of slight importance to the raising of children, after all, and the larger the welfare state, the more employment for crucial members of the Democratic base.
Heather Mac Donald
Raising children is an incredibly hard and risky business in which no cumulative wisdom is gained: each generation repeats the mistakes the previous one made.
Bill Cosby
The truth of it is that every singer out there with songs on the radio is raising the next generation, so make your words count.
Taylor Swift
We need long-term tax reform that promotes private sector job creation. And legislated mandates that kill jobs by raising the cost of payrolls need to be eliminated.
Elaine Chao
Those who have gone through a divorce know the pain and special challenges of raising a child under such circumstances.
Mike McGavick
We’re raising our girls to understand the real meaning of Christmas, and to know that it’s most important to have Christmas in your heart. We go to our local mall and donate toys, and we say prayers for all the people in the world who might not be as lucky as we are.
Faith Hill
An increase in shareholder value can arise for reasons other than greater efficiency, such as increased power and the resulting ability to increase profits by raising prices.
Janet Yellen
Here’s the problem if you keep raising tax rates: You slow down economic growth.
Paul Ryan
There is one funding suggestion that should be part of any transportation discussion, but most people don’t want to talk about it – raising the gas tax.
Michael Capuano
What your beliefs are about anything creates your actions. What you believe about marriage creates the way you handle your marriage. What you believe about raising kids creates the way you do that.
Dave Ramsey
The Bush tax cuts should be extended permanently for families with annual incomes of less than $250,000 and should be phased out slowly for those making more than that. Raising taxes on anyone now, when the economic recovery is so fragile, would be a mistake.
Mark Zandi
I’m a single parent, and I just found that it was too difficult to manage raising my kids and doing the traveling involved in making movies. So I took a little bit of a break. And the little bit of a break turned into a longer break, and then I found that I really didn’t miss it.
Rick Moranis
I can’t imagine my life without my kids. Raising them has been the greatest joy in my life.
Josie Bissett
Raising funds for my fourth expedition proved to be very difficult.
Louis Leakey
I personally don’t believe we ought to be raising taxes or cutting spending, either one, until we get this economy off the ground. I’ll pay more, but it won’t solve the problem.
William J. Clinton
There’s no recovery on Main Street, I can tell you that for sure. And in a re – in an economy like this, we don’t need to be raising anybody’s taxes.
Haley Barbour
Whether it’s raising the minimum wage, fixing our broken immigration system or supporting an economic climate that gives our businesses that chance to succeed, I hope to continue to fight these important battles on behalf of my constituents.
Joe Kennedy III
My mum did really well raising me and my brother by herself. I know it was a struggle, and even from a young age, when I was boxing, it was always to make my mother proud.
Nicola Adams
I feel like, in my 20s, I was putting my hair in a pony

I feel like, in my 20s, I was putting my hair in a ponytail and pinching my cheeks and raising my voice an octave. So I feel more comfortable being a woman than I did being a young ingenue.
Rosemarie DeWitt
My ex-husband is very involved in raising our beautiful children. We’re very lucky because we both grew up in working families in middle America. We’re on the same page that way.
Reese Witherspoon
My father very early on had both short and long-term strategies in his approach to raising his children, so my father was disturbed by the extent to which I was interested in both hip-hop and sports.
Thomas Chatterton Williams
One of the biggest lessons I’ve learnt is patience. It’s critical when raising a child.
Rahul Dev
In any other context, ‘icing’ is a great and exciting word: The proverbial icing on the cake, for instance, is a bonus – a wonderful thing on top of another wonderful thing. But in hockey, icing merely results in the referee’s raising his right hand, as if swearing an oath to the deity of downtime.
Steve Rushin
The Liberal carbon tax is just about raising revenue for government.
Andrew Scheer
The reality is what Black Lives Matter are raising as an issue is an issue.
Martin Luther King III
We all know how powerful the web can be for raising political money. Well, if you’re game, the Duke Cunningham Legal Defense Fund is apparently ready to accept your donation.
Joshua Micah Marshall
Training a puppy is like raising a child. Every single interaction is a training opportunity.
Ian Dunbar
No matter what, once the doors are open for business, the entrepreneur has no choice but to be directing multiple attacks at once – raising money, writing software, prototyping, selling, collecting, training, and marketing.
Michael Gerber
Anybody who is familiar with the historical data from the IRS knows that raising income tax rates will likely actually reduce federal revenues.
Mike Pence
Maybe a person’s time would be as well spent raising food as raising money to buy food.
Frank A. Clark
Manipulating the bond market is so greatly reducing the cost of capital that so far companies have been able to maintain profit margins without raising prices. As a result, we’ve been exchanging capital cost for commodity costs but you can only do that for so long.
Porter Stansberry
Even today, you get criticized if you’re staying at home, because you’re not doing enough with your life, but you get criticized for being a career woman because you’re not raising your kids.
Sarah Drew
Americans don’t think we should be raising taxes on anybody, especially in the middle of a recession.
Mitch McConnell
One of the most important accomplishments of the Caucus is raising awareness with law enforcement and communities nationwide on the issues of child safety and Internet safety.
Nick Lampson
Raising the minimum wage isn’t just pro-worker; it’s pro-economic growth.
Tom Perez
Raising awareness for Nepal was and still is an important role for me.
Michelle Yeoh
I had a world of people raising me; it was like a little village.
Gaby Hoffmann
We have no interest in raising taxes.
Kim Reynolds
It’s always about finding the right balance between answering some questions and raising new ones to keep your story going.
Oren Peli
In the South, everyone speaks, if you know each other or not. I’m raising my daughter more Southern, like how her father and I were raised.
Shanola Hampton
I don’t even know if I have kind of a personal, like a take or a mental manual of how I’m raising kids. It’s really – I think with everybody, it’s just day-to-day and you just try to deal with every situation as they come.
Steve Carell
I’ve wondered if ‘Harry Potter’ would have been as big if it was ‘Harriet Potter.’ Now that I’ve written a screenplay – and raising a son in particular – I’m looking at story content and realizing how limited women are onscreen.
Gillian Flynn
By raising the minimum wage in California, 700,000 people are going to lose their jobs. There are a lot of opportunities for companies to prosper in Florida and compete here, and that’s what I’m going after.
Rick Scott
Raising property taxes in Alabama is never going to happen. The people are never going to vote for that. I don’t like property taxes, either.
Robert J. Bentley
I’m raising kids, and so much of American culture sustains me and gives me things to think about and work on.
Colson Whitehead
No one’s raising children any more. To love a child, you’ve got to work for it. You have to change its diapers and feed it at night!
Lauren Hutton
I don’t think anyone enjoys raising money, but for some reason I seem to have a knack.
Louis Susman
I have been raising money for the past 14 years for diabetes research.
John Ratzenberger
The single hardest part of leading any organization is knowing what is going on. There’s too much noise in the system, too much complexity: you absolutely depend on people speaking up and raising concerns.
Margaret Heffernan
The need for raising the awareness of this shameful cha

The need for raising the awareness of this shameful chapter in U.S. history is more apparent than ever.
Mike Honda
Business cycles lengthened greatly during the 20th century, as central banks learned to manage national economies by raising and lowering interest rates.
Alex Berenson
I have learned that raising children is the single most difficult thing in the world to do. It takes hard work, love, luck, and a lot of energy, and it is the most rewarding experience that you can ever have.
Janet Reno
Helping parents to meet the everyday costs of raising their families, helping them lift themselves up to create a better life for their children and keeping them safe is what motivated me to get into public life, and it continues to drive me every day.
Erin O’Toole
I think it’s important that people know what raising the debt ceiling is. It’s Congress giving permission to the federal government to borrow more money that we don’t have, and we borrow it for the purpose of spending it.
Michele Bachmann
Honestly, when I had the idea to make ‘An Inconvenient Truth,’ and I was going out and raising the money, and I said, ‘I want to make a movie about Al Gore’s slide show, will you give me a million dollars?’ People thought I was insane, looked at me cross-eyed.
Lawrence Bender
In an era when party fundraising is badly tainted, dinners are a really good way of raising cash for campaigning. Lots of people giving very small amounts of money through ticket sales and raffle prizes: yes, it’s much harder work than big donations, but I think it’s a more democratic and transparent way of fundraising.
Lucy Powell
The point at which we worked with some of these actors, they weren’t really stars yet. Nicolas Cage was not a big star when we did Raising Arizona. A lot of these people were also virtually unknown, too, when we worked with them first.
Joel Coen
Like a lot of Irish households we read a lot of Irish history. It was almost Soviet, raising the next generation with a mythic view of their history.
Fiona Shaw
I came back and started living with my parents, and you depend a lot on your parents. That was the time when my mother was diagnosed with an illness; she needed help and she could not be of that great help for raising my child.
Mahima Chaudhry
As far as I’m concerned, raising the bar or encouraging kids in large numbers to be interested in science, I can’t think of anything I’d rather see happen.
Jamie Hyneman
I know the game wasn’t a classic, but the night was about more than that-it was about bringing back the memories and raising money for former heroes who have now fallen on hard times.
David Ginola
I was raised by women. Now I’m raising women. I was always better around girls. I live in an all-female household. I even have two female dogs… It’s funny how that turned out.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson
I would say raising capital is one of the weakest things for most entrepreneurs.
Robert Kiyosaki
We are going to try and turn Lord’s red for the day as a testament to my wife Ruth, but more importantly as a way of increasing awareness and raising funds for the Ruth Strauss Foundation.
Andrew Strauss
I’m currently raising a 15 year old son and an 18 year old daughter, which a guess is my punishment for a wild youth!
Gil Gerard
It’s just hard not to listen to TV: it’s spent so much more time raising us than parents have.
Matt Groening
I admire identity politics for raising the fact that there are terrible and constant microaggressions against all minorities.
David Baddiel
My character Esteban is a guy who really didn’t think he was gonna be there at this point in his life. He’s in his early 30s. He’s got a son. He’s raising his son as a single father.
Esai Morales
Failure is not an option. So, we’re committed to the success of not just our relationship but to raising two amazing girls… It’s dedication. We’ve anchored ourselves to a foundation of accountability, and we’ve set out to be successful at this, so we’re going to do it.
Ian Ziering
For future Snowdens, we want to show there is an organization that will do what we did for Snowden – as much as possible – in raising money for legal defense and public advocacy for whistleblowers so they know if they come forward there is a support group for them.
Sarah Harrison
My mom has always been a huge inspiration. She was a single mom raising two kids in New York. Now that is full-on all the time.
Kim Raver
I think it’s important to show a husband and a wife together, in a room, raising children, because you don’t see that anymore.
Tyler Perry
I can’t imagine raising a child with a goal of that child being a baseball player or a lawyer or whatever. Odds are, they’ll be something else. In this world, there are a lot of opportunities.
Oliver Luck
I take pride in how great my relationship is with Chris, but having said that, of course, in this crazy world where he’s off doing movies and I’m in L.A. raising our child, of course I’m going to feel vulnerable, like any normal human would.
Anna Faris
My hobby is raising my children.
Lynn Nottage
First and foremost comes my family and my life with Brad. We have so much joy in raising our children and teaching them about the world that nothing really compares to that.
Angelina Jolie
Why dictator Musharraf, raising the slogan of ‘Pakistan First,’ did not think about construction of Dasu and Basha dams?
Shehbaz Sharif
Growing up raising three boys on your own is either gonna make you strong or make you crazy. It definitely made my mom strong.
Rasheed Wallace
Raising money, like sausage-making, ain’t pretty to see, and it would be just criminally naive to rely on the big hearts of big donors.
Richard Cohen
If you really spend time with movies, it’s three years of your life from beginning to end. I started out planting the seed with ‘Monster’s Ball’ about independent cinema and raising money and that whole thing as a producer, and then it becomes easier for me.
Lee Daniels
We got babies raising babies, and its important for us

We got babies raising babies, and its important for us as responsible adults to go out and do what we can to make sure that our kids are steered in the right direction.
Alonzo Mourning
Trade deals are not the vehicle for raising or lowering standards of protection for consumers, the environment, workers or anyone else. Regulations are made by governments and parliaments.
Kenneth Clarke
I do not support raising the minimum wage, and the reason is as follows. When the minimum wage is raised, workers are priced out of the market. That is the economic reality that seems, at least so far, to be missing from this discussion.
John Sununu
I think we can reform Social Security without raising taxes, which is better for economic growth.
Margaret Hoover
I love this city. I’m raising my family here. I’m vested in it just like every San Diegan is. I want the best for us.
Kevin Faulconer
Raising a family is life’s greatest joy, but it can also be humbling. You cannot do it alone.
Erin O’Toole
In 2008, Senator John McCain forbid his staff from using an ad that referred to his opponent Barack Obama’s inflammatory former pastor Jeremiah Wright or from raising that issue in any other way. He believed it was a sneaky way to use Obama’s race against him.
John Dickerson
My mum was too busy raising four of us to encourage my hopes. But I’m glad I had the upbringing I did. It made me a worrier and a thoughtful, curious person.
Ellie Goulding
Modesty means admitting the possibility of error, subsuming the self for the good of the whole, remaining open to surprise and the gifts that only failure can bring. There are many ways to practice it. Try taking up golf. Or making your own bagels. Or raising a teenager.
Nancy Gibbs
This is the culture you’re raising your kids in. Don’t be surprised if it blows up in your face.
Marilyn Manson
As a parent, I can empathize with how difficult raising children can be. There are challenges, especially within the framework of divorce, when parental guilt can sometimes blur what should be the best decision.
LZ Granderson
I can’t say ‘I’m proud to say’ – because it’s not a choice for many Americans – but I can say I’m fortunate enough to not be raising my kids on McDonald’s.
Laura Dern
And a special thank you to the citizens of Massachusetts: You are paying all the taxes, creating all the jobs, raising all the children. This government is yours. Thank you for letting me serve you. I love this job.
Mitt Romney
Japanese tend to put sales and market share first. They make many products with the aim of raising sales. But then profits decline, and companies find themselves falling into debt… I changed the mindset at Canon by getting people to realize that profits come first.
Fujio Mitarai
I consider myself very fortunate. I have a beautiful wife who supports my work and is raising our daughter when I’m out on the road.
Kurt Elling
We never knew we’d have kids playing pro football or going to Super Bowls. That wasn’t ever a part of our plan in raising kids, so we really feel blessed.
Archie Manning
Miami is not optimal for raising a child.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan
Raising teens is a challenge – that’s for sure.
Kyle Richards
It’s no coincidence that I began writing the day my daughter started school. I knew everything I knew before I began to write, but I was raising two children and didn’t have the time to get to the typewriter.
Susan Isaacs
People always say to me, ‘It must be so much pressure and so difficult playing out there in front of 60,000 people.’ I always say, ‘No, not really.’ Playing football and earning great money isn’t difficult. Working three jobs and raising kids alone, which is what my Mum did. That’s difficult.
Troy Deeney
I try to be really conscious. I don’t want to ever look back and regret not raising my kids and not being around.
Zac Brown
As a chef, I had started working with groups like Share Our Strength and various local food banks in New York, raising money for hunger-related issues. And not only me, but the entire restaurant industry has been very focused on this issue.
Tom Colicchio
Where is instruction in relationships, in the management of career, in the raising of children, in the pursuit of friendship, in the wise approach to anxiety and death? All this sort of stuff I craved to learn about when I was a student and down to this day.
Alain de Botton
Since the age of four, I’ve been exploring what I can do with the written word: everything from championing literacy and youth voice to raising awareness about world hunger.
Adora Svitak
Leaders get out in front and stay there by raising the standards by which they judge themselves – and by which they are willing to be judged.
Frederick W. Smith
It’s about getting a more democratic Wales for the purpose of improving our economic performance, for improving the delivery of health care, for raising educational standards.
Ron Davies
My undergraduate degree was in art history! Raising money for Chipotle was really my MBA. The money for my first restaurant came from my dad, the second from mostly cash flow. The third was an SBA loan. After my dad invested $1.5 million to open a few more, he suggested I raise the money myself for the experience.
Steve Ells
It has to have a payroll tax that’s dedicated to Social Security. The Social Security tax has been very successful over the years in raising almost all of our elderly citizens out of poverty.
James Roosevelt
My grandfather pioneered exploration of what he called ‘our water planet,’ then my father sought to understand the human connection, and now, as part of the third generation, I’m dedicated to not only raising awareness but also to empowering people to take action.
Philippe Cousteau, Jr.
Losing your patience and your temper isn’t the most attractive thing, but as kids get older, you wind up raising your voice.
Peter Krause
My mother has been really instrumental in raising a lot of money through the Boys & Girls Club in my hometown.
Chris Long
I am prepared to discuss the things that I believe we n

I am prepared to discuss the things that I believe we need to do not just to raise the debt limit. Raising the debt limit is the easiest thing. That’s one vote away. The hard thing is to show the world we are serious about putting our spending in order so we can show people we’ll able to pay our bills down the road.
Marco Rubio
God put us here to prepare this place for the next generation. That’s our job. Raising children and helping the community, that’s preparing for the next generation.
Dikembe Mutombo
Raising a family is difficult enough. But it’s even more difficult for single parents struggling to make ends meet. They don’t need more obstacles. They need more opportunities.
Bill Richardson
I’m constantly trying to educate myself with new material on raising children as opposed to the rule book from 20 years ago.
Asher Keddie
Right after graduation, I married Samuel Fisher Babbitt, an academic administrator. I spent the next ten years in Connecticut, Tennessee, and Washington, D.C., raising our children, Christopher, Tom, and Lucy.
Natalie Babbitt
As for Aamir Khan, he keeps raising the standard with every film. For an artist like me or a newcomer like me, we can only look up to that and dream, ‘When will that be us someday?’ There’s so much to learn from him. He is the encyclopedia of acting.
Tiger Shroff
To be in love with someone and be raising a family with someone and want to make that commitment and not be able to is ludicrous, just ludicrous.
Brad Pitt
I’ve had a family my entire adult life; I started raising kids when I was 21. I suspect that being part of a family has probably informed my life as a writer as much as anything else has.
Amy Bloom
Single mothers are raising more of America’s children than ever before.
Gayle Tzemach Lemmon
I love Bill Belichick. He is a great coach, great man – raising men to do the right thing and win championships in this league.
Ed Reed
Most arguments for instituting or raising a minimum wage are based on fairness and redistribution. Even if workers are getting a competitive wage, many of us are deeply disturbed that some hard-working families still have very little.
Christina Romer
I’m just raising money. Dead presidents are my relatives.
Juicy J
I love my mum for raising us, and I love my dad for teaching me what to avoid.
Joe Wicks
Raising five boys is a handful, trust me.
Barbara Bush
How about a good comedy? ‘Raising Arizona.’ Remains the funniest movie I’ve ever seen in my life.
Lee Unkrich
I’m committed to raising teacher pay and will fight to make significant progress every year until we get there.
Roy Cooper
Whether you’re raising money for a cause, a personal need, or a project, most crowdfunding sites center on you hitting up people you already know. These sites make it easier to tap your social network for funds, but only the most compelling cases inspire support from strangers.
Charles Best
I’m the person that I always was, but in terms of how I approach my living, I’m not the same person at all. At all. I’ve buried a child, I’ve ended a marriage, and the grandson that I was raising is now grown. My family has totally shifted.
Iyanla Vanzant
The first and continuing argument for the curtailment of working hours and the raising of the minimum age was that education was necessary in a democracy and working children could not attend school.
Grace Abbott
The disconnect between what people think and what the political leaders are actually doing is something that we really need to start raising.
Peter Maurer
I believe that if today’s youth work together raising our collective voice, we can affect the positive environmental change that Planet Earth needs so desperately.
Aidan Gallagher
We’re raising a generation of kids who are being overly praised for incredibly minor accomplishments. I think it’s counter-productive.
J. K. Simmons
Jews bear children not only because the carnal election of Abraham must continue. For Jews, raising children is essential to living a rounded ethical life.
Meir Soloveichik
With the amount of money I have, it’s difficult raising children the way I was raised.
Adam Sandler
I’m raising my family in The Church, and I’m proud of that.
Brandon Flowers
Raising the minimum wage does not take from growth, it adds to growth.
Phil Murphy
As an older dad who grew up in a rural culture in the South, certain things were expected of women, and that included raising the children. But I think it’s just as important for the father to give the baths, to hug, to change the diapers, to tell the stories.
Clyde Edgerton
Robotics, manufacturing, medicine, farming, energy – all will be pushed to and beyond their limits and, by so doing, will advance at speeds far faster than without the impetus and challenge of opening a frontier – thus also raising the odds of survival in our favor.
Rick Tumlinson
I never worried about raising a kid on my own.
Marianne Lake
I saw firsthand the impact of women’s efforts inside and outside the home from watching my wonderful mother, Nancy. A nurse who trained at Hopkins, she balanced the demands of raising our family with her work at our rural hospital on the Eastern Shore.
Ralph Northam
Raising the minimum wage represents a substantial financial burden for employers, particularly start-ups, early stage companies, and family-owned businesses. In response, business owners would be forced to either lay off workers or raise prices to offset the rise in labor costs.
Fabrizio Moreira
My mother grew up strong. She was a charismatic leader

My mother grew up strong. She was a charismatic leader among her peers, staging plays, organizing projects, raising money for charity; she was fiercely protective of her younger brother, with whom she shared a passion for jazz and rock and roll.
Anand Giridharadas
Colin Campbell should be thanking me for raising his profile. I’m the only one who’s put the Colin Campbell name on the map. Who has even heard of Lord Colin Campbell?
Lady Colin Campbell
We are committed to raising our children as Jews. I knew that it had to start with me at a greater level, at a deeper level, if it was going to be a meaningful example to them.
David Gregory
I know about raising money.
Nancy Pelosi
We are raising a generation of kids where everyone gets a trophy. But in real life, everyone don’t get a trophy.
Killer Mike
Stacey Abrams – very articulate, very smart, but she just has radical views on wanting to grow government, raising taxes, trying to have these big government policies that didn’t work in the Barack Obama administration.
Brian Kemp
Conservatives should single-mindedly privilege marriage as the solution to poverty and the best path for raising successful children, and not rationalize the real of destructive cultural change.
Heather Mac Donald
Schizoaffective disorder is a big mental mash-up of a disease. It combines just about every disorder, from depression, delusions, and paranoia to mania, schizophrenia and hallucinations. My mother bounced between all of these regularly while raising me alone in our Hollywood home.
Shawn Amos
For the good producer, raising capital is about the last thing to worry about. If you’re good, the money comes very easily.
Irwin Winkler
Let us more and more insist on raising funds of love, of kindness, of understanding, of peace. Money will come if we seek first the Kingdom of God – the rest will be given.
Mother Teresa
We’re not raising children with the love that we need to.
Bill Cosby
Raising awareness on the most pressing environmental issues of our time is more important than ever.
Leonardo DiCaprio
Hyperinflation can take virtually your entire life’s savings, without the government having to bother raising the official tax rate at all.
Thomas Sowell
People question me all the time about my experience. They question my experience in politics, and the first thing I always tell them is yes, I have no experience raising taxes over and over. I have no experience increasing the debt in a state.
Jon Runyan
My father became completely responsible for my education and for raising me.
Diego Luna
I think a man and a woman, on a whole array of issues, including raising children, have differences, and then you work them through.
Teresa Heinz
Disciples of Keynes, who focus on aggregate demand, view any increase in household wealth as raising employment because they say it adds to consumer demand.
Edmund Phelps
I have great memories from childhood. Of course, the divorce, when I was 11, was tough. But my mom, especially, did a great job in raising us.
Malcolm Brogdon
Unions continue to be important for raising the standard of living for working Americans, whether or not they happen to be in a union.
Jason Kander
As a mom raising two kids on my own, my life requires a certain kind of constant juggling that is hard to keep on track.
Stephanie Land
If your startup is only in the development or idea stage, there is almost no better predictor of failure – I mean, utter failure, scorched-earth bankruptcy – than raising too much money in the first round.
Steve Jurvetson
I believe Nebraskans appreciate the fiscal discipline I’ve brought to state government, balancing the budget without raising taxes and prioritizing education funding.
Dave Heineman
The biggest source of getting the country to a balanced budget is not by raising taxes or by cutting spending. It’s by encouraging the growth of the economy.
Mitt Romney
Liberals don’t think parents can be left to their own devices when it comes to raising our children.
Mike Gallagher
