Rose Kennedy Quote
In response to criticism of funding of her son Robert's presidential campaign
“Whenever I held my newborn baby in my arms, I used to think that what I said and did to him could have an influence not only on him but on all whom he met, not only for a day or a month or a year, but for all eternity - a very challenging and exciting thought for a mother.”
As quoted in: Journal of the Steward Anthropological Society, Volume 4, No. 1 (1973), p. 125
