"I think we should all be tolerant of each other and embrace each others' strengths and differences and uniqueness and beauty."
"Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it."Martina McBride on Confucius
"To love beauty is to see light."Martina McBride on Victor Hugo
"Beauty is only skin deep. If you go after someone just because she's beautiful but don't have anything to talk about, it's going to get boring fast. You want to look beyond the surface and see if you can have fun or if you have anything in common with this person."Martina McBride on Amanda Peet
"A woman whose smile is open and whose expression is glad has a kind of beauty no matter what she wears."Martina McBride on Anne Roiphe
"People are like stained - glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within."Martina McBride on Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
"I have a really amazing fan club, it's contemporary but it's a little bit old school. There's a lot of connection. I have a fan club president who really responds to people."
"I have girls who are concerned about how they look compared to models or what have you. It's my responsibility to teach them that beauty is more than superficial."
"That's the hardest thing about being a mom. You want to be cool, and you want them to like you all the time, but you can't always have that. You're gonna have times where you have to say no, and you won't be the most popular person in the house."
"I was into all kinds of music as a teen - country music, because my dad was in a band that played country, and whatever my sister and brother were into."
"My dad was a huge country music fan, but he also had a band and he sang. So he'd listen to a lot of music and the songs that he'd learn for the band were more from the male artists. So my earliest country memories were Waylon Jennings, Conway Twitty, George Jones, Johnny Paycheck even."
