Mika Brzezinski Quotes

I am a marathon worker and marathon mother. I’ll spend three or four days completely swallowed up by work.

Mika Brzezinski
Marriage, Parenting, Realize

We have to unclutter our brains from worries that maybe people don’t like us. Women tend to worry about popularity; it doesn’t matter if they like you. They need to respect you. They need to show that respect for you in your pay check. And that needs to be okay.
Mika Brzezinski
Women, Respect, Matter

Mika Brzezinski
Time, Good, Family
