I realize that for many New Yorkers, this is the first time you've heard my name, and you don't know much about me. Over these next two years you will get to know me, but more importantly, I will get to know you.
Gillibrand quotes
I was just a young lawyer thinking, What am I doing with my life? What am I doing with my career? As I watched [Hillary Clinton] on that stage I thought, Why arenít I there? It was so poignant for me. And thatís what made me figure out how to get involved in politics.
Gillibrand
My mother is a great hunter ó she usually shoots our Thanksgiving turkey.




Gillibrand Kirsten quotes
[Hillary Clinton] was trying to encourage us to become more active in politics and she said, 'If you leave all the decision-making to others, you might not like what they do, and you will have no one but yourself to blame.' It was such a challenge to the women in the room. And it really hit me: Sheís talking to me.

As a 10-year-old girl, I would listen to my grandmother discuss issues, and she made a lasting impression on me.
Kirsten Gillibrand quotes
She seems like me ó serious and policy-focused.
Kirsten Gillibrand
I don't think clients you represented as an associate are relevant ... I think how you vote is relevant.
Gillibrand Kirsten quotes
The Senate is extremely slow: They have enormous difficulty passing the bills that even get through the House. That's the reality that I've recognized in my two years: that it takes time to change the world.
