  • Quotes

    • Lindsay Greenbush: (about "Little House on the Prairie") It teaches us to support one another, and to be there, and to have compassion, and to care for your fellow neighbor and your family, and working together to survive. Those are key values that are really lacking in society today. Now, with my daughter, we're reading the books together, and I get to share that with her in a whole other aspect, in a whole other way. And I get to pass those values on to her now.

    • Lindsay Greenbush: I wanted to take a break from acting when I was 16. It was an awkward time to find work anyway, and I just never went back.

    • Lindsay Greenbush: (when asked if she would change anything about her character on "Little House") I still watch the episodes. I still see things I wish a could change, and scenes I wish I could do over, because I know I could do them better now. And I wish Carrie could have been more involved with her sisters and everyday family life. They make it look like Carrie wasn't really close with her sisters, and Laura never takes her fishing or riding. I grew up on a ranch till I was seven, and sometimes the only people to play with are your siblings.
