10 Of The Most Memorable Quotes By Whitney Houston (Photos)

Whitney during her skinny years

She might have been a number of things to a number of people, but for Whitney Houston, she was an incredibly devoted mother to her daughter, Bobbi Kristina.

Sure, she had a lot of questionable quotes attached to her name throughout the years (remember “show me the receipts?”) but she did make it clear in a number of interviews that being a mother was more important to her than being on one of the most powerful Divas in the world.

Whitney will be remembered for both the words she spoke and sung and there is no doubt that her legacy will live for years to come. Check out our top ten quotes from Whitney on everything from motherhood to death of another superstar and tell us your thoughts.
