"My career is all about women finding a voice. When women are empowered and given a voice, that is how we can change the world. … What we have is a lot of tired women; When you’re tired, it’s very hard to feel empowered. … Women who are in charge of their own economic and physical lives will make the world run more smoothly. … Women can learn, think, and have a voice, and this is what will change the world. I do believe that women can have a stronger voice. We can empower ourselves. My hope is that we see a great growth in women determining their own lives.” — Connie Britton (Social Good Summit, 9/22/2014)

“It’s funny—my married friends tell me all the time, ‘What you have is so much easier.’ When you’re doing it on your own, you don’t have to [argue over] how you’re raising the kids.” - Connie Britton
Connie Britton covers the October issue of Redbook magazine.
On how she’s able to be opinionated yet keep her great reputation in Hollywood:
It’s about maintaining a smile and a sense of humor and letting the person know I’m not there to destroy them, but to make this work better for everybody.
I die for Connie. We text; my life is also made. I accosted her at last year’s Golden Globes and it is our one year friendiversary. Connie Britton, who is literally my idol and we became friends this year. She is like, ‘you are just such a dear.’ And I’m like, ‘just put your hand on my back and tell me that every day.’ And she’s just the greatest human ever. I will never have hair as good as Connie Britton’s and I don’t even need to. - Sophia Bush

Your baby grows a tooth, then two,
and four, and five, then she wants some meat
directly from the bone. It’s all
over: she’ll learn some words, she’ll fall
in love with cretins, dolts, a sweet
talker on his way to jail. And you,
your wife, get old, flyblown, and rue
nothing. You did, you loved, your feet
are sore. It’s dusk. Your daughter’s tall.
