“I understand how extraordinary my childhood was, and that my mother’s gift and all of the people who’ve loved her [have afforded me] the opportunities I have. I also had a really great mom. We had a lot, and as much as I knew that everybody didn’t live that way, she didn’t raise us with a sense of entitlement. She used to say things like, ‘Oh no, no, no, I worked for all of this. This is mine and I’m not leaving any of it to you. I’m going to spend it, so you’d better get a job, little girl.'”

-Tracee Ellis Ross on her mother, Diana Ross, to Essence, 2015.
