“What do I wish I’d had when I was growing up? A mother and a father—parents I could depend on from the beginning, balanced and sure of heart. Parents I could talk to about my hopes and dreams. Parents to make me aware I had choices. … Being a mother wasn’t what I expected at all. Little did I know that [my children] would be the greatest joys of my life. … As your mom, I am allowed to imagine accelerating and infinite heights for you. That is what mothers do. Excelsior!”

-Gloria Vanderbilt talks about motherhood in her and son Anderson Cooper’s best-selling book, The Rainbow Comes and Goes: A Mother and Son On Life, Love, and Loss.
