It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.
Growing up is losing some illusions, in order to acquire others.
For, after all, you do grow up, you do outgrow your ideals, which turn to dust and ashes, which are shattered into fragments; and if you have no other life, you just have to build one up out of these fragments.
Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.
Even though you're growing up, you should never stop having fun.
I've always been a strong family advocate. I had a wonderful family growing up

Thank goodness I had a great family growing up, a great foundation. But I will say my faith, my parents, my family, all that stuff is very, very important. And I'll say that until the day I die.
The big thing in my family growing up is that everybody had to play a musical instrument. We were like the von Trapps.
I feel like confidence is something that ebbs and flows. I was given a lot of love and attention from my family growing up, so for sure I had a natural confidence.
Me and my family growing up, we cleared our land built our homes and all that. So, I was very well knowledgeable in the construction world. That turned into a commercial development company and construction company.
My parents were very poor, but we never felt any sense of need or want. It was a very close, loving, tightly-knit family growing up, and I never felt any sense of deprivation or anything like that.
