"I really want to adopt a child... I want to be called 'Mom.' It really is the most beautiful word in the English language."
"My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her."Patti Stanger on George Washington
"The natural state of motherhood is unselfishness. When you become a mother, you are no longer the center of your own universe. You relinquish that position to your children."Patti Stanger on Jessica Lange
"My mother had a great deal of trouble with me, but I think she enjoyed it."Patti Stanger on Mark Twain
"Men are what their mothers made them."Patti Stanger on Ralph Waldo Emerson
"My mother said to me, 'If you are a soldier, you will become a general. If you are a monk, you will become the Pope.' Instead, I was a painter, and became Picasso."Patti Stanger on Pablo Picasso
"Up until age 40, most men are just not as mature as women. So, it makes sense that a lot of women date up in age a bit."
"Think back to yourself at age 18. I know I was mighty different than the Patti I am today. As we grow up, we grow out of our haircuts, our apartments and - often times - our romantic decisions."
"Women are smart in business and dumb in love. They won't date outside their zip code, let alone outside the city. They are city snobs."
"I dated a guy and he liked me but I didn't like him. I went through his wardrobe and cleaned out his house and got him to get a new car. He said to me, 'If I give you $10,000, will you find me my wife because I want someone like you?' And within a year, he got married. That was the first match that led to me leaving my corporate job."
"I have put gay dating on the map."
