I don't believe we own our children, they're their own souls who make their own choices, we just guide and support them.Elle Macpherson

At this stage I am not involved with young adults as closely as many other writers. My children are grown up and my grandchildren are still quite young.Margaret Mahy

Writing for young children I find I often use particular jokes with words and exaggerated, funny events, but some of these haunt the more complex stories for older children too.Margaret Mahy

Certainly, I know what it's like to be obsessed. I haven't always been there for my children. They could reach me, but I wasn't always there. But, you know, that's not necessarily anything to do with being a writer. I mean, a taxi driver could have the same problem... Maybe.Henning Mankell

My father always taught me to appreciate what you're fortunate to have and give back to those who need it. No part of our society is more important than the children, especially the ones who need our help.Dan Marino

My children did not go through a stage of being rude to their parents. I'm sorry if that sounds incredible.Judith Martin

I need to tell the world what I'm about, my nature, because not doing so would be teaching my children how to lie. I didn't want it to be.Ricky Martin

My priorities are: I need to be good; I need to be well within for my children to be well within; and then the creative process flows, organically and smoothly. I'm not looking to experience what I went through in the 'Livin' La Vida Loca' days again.Ricky Martin

At the end of the day, it's about the best interests of the children.Marlee Matlin

Living modestly in a suburban neighborhood while trying to support four children through private school is not extravagant or living large.Marlee Matlin

I also really liked playing Mr. Tumnus in 'Narnia'. I got to play my favorite character in children's literature, which I loved. You don't get the chance to do that in other jobs.James McAvoy

I did 'Narnia' because it was a good opportunity and all that, but really? I wanted to play Mr. Tumnus because he's my favourite children's character. That was awesome.James McAvoy

If you ask 99.9 percent of parents who have children with autism if we'd rather have the measles versus autism, we'd sign up for the measles.Jenny McCarthy

Unfortunately, cancer is the number one killer of children in this country today, and it destroys not only these innocent victims, but their families as well.Michael McCaul

Frequently parents forget that children are people. I don't try to treat Kristen as an adult, but I do try to treat her as a person, with a child's sensibilities.Kent McCord

People who are exceptionally intelligent are often lonely because there are few people as intelligent as them. I have two little children, and everyone says: 'I hope they're doing well in school. I hope they're bright.' And I think: 'Why would anyone want their children to be the brightest?' Academia is a lonely world.Helen McCrory

My grandparents never understood why my mother Noreen chose such exotic names for her children: Damon and me. My granny insisted on calling my brother Dermot - a good Irish name - until she died; I was just known as 'wee one.'Natascha McElhone

When I was a kid if I was unhappy, I'd stroke my dog. I was into bringing injured birds into the house, RSPCA activities. And the relationship that you have with animals, you can get that from your children: that unquestioning love and adoration and equal need.Steve McFadden
