I think that sometimes she doesn’t realize how much I love her and respect her and respect what she is, as a woman and as an actress and what she’s contributed to her profession and her world. And I think that she needs to know that.” — Stephen Bogart

I think the qualities that my mother gave me include intelligence, humor, sensitivity, the ability to scrutinize people. I feel she gave me her sense of power and her sense of strength as she deals with the world around her. And her contribution to women and to women’s issues in addition to being to a loving mother. She has also, just as a woman, been a great example for me.” — Leslie Bogart
