Father Betrayal Quotes

Thy wish was father, Harry, to that thought

William Shakespeare

When I was twelve, I went hunting with my father and we shot a bird. He was laying there and something struck me. Why do we call this fun to kill this creature who was as happy as I was when I woke up this morning

Marv Levy

The place of the father in the modern suburban family is a very small one, particularly if he plays golf.

Bertrand Russell

All America lies at the end of the wilderness road, and our past is not a dead past, but still lives in us. Our forefathers had civilization inside themselves, the wild outside. We live in the civilization they created, but within us the wilderness still lingers. What they dreamed, we live, and what they lived, we dream

T.K. Whipple

We never know through what Divine mysteries of compensation the great Father of the universe may be carrying out His sublime plan; but those three words, "God is love " ought to contain, to every doubting soul, the solution of all things.

Dinah Maria Mulock Craik

Gueorgui love to the forest, the forest as old as a legend, gentle as a mother and stern as a father.

Nicolai Levkov

Jesus brooded upon the Divine imminence until at last he could declare, "I and my Father are One

James Allen

Victory has a thousand fathers, but defeat is an orphan.

Father! - to God himself we cannot give a holier name.

William Wordsworth

That is the thankless position of the father in the family-the provider for all, and the enemy of all.

J. August Strindberg

Any form of card-case, beyond the most battered and unassuming, is surely an aesthetic and social travesty. To withdraw, say, a silver case from the pocket before removing a card is surely to trumpet a ludicrous gaucheness and maladroit pretension. It is impossible for the intended recipient of the card to view the case as anything other than a misjudged piece of peacockery; unfeasible to avoid a brief inner commentary along the lines of oh, hes bought one of those... he decided this would make the act of handing over a card a signal of his success as a businessman and a certain refined elegance as a gentleman... probably picked it out himself... please God it was a Fathers Day gift from a child who knew no better.

Derren Victor Brown

Wild was the day; the wintry sea Moaned sadly on New England's strand, When first the thoughtful and the free, Our fathers, trod the desert land.

William Cullen Bryant

My father liked Iowa. He lived his whole life in the state, and is even now working his way through eternity there, in Glendale Cemetery in Des Moines.

William Cullen Bryant

Yes, to obviate his becoming such a gentleman as his father.

Anne Bront

Digression is the soul of wit. Take the philosophic asides away from Dante, Milton or Hamlet's father's ghost and what stays is dry bones.

Ray Douglas Bradbury

If for thy Father askt, say, thou hadst none;And for thy Mother, she alas is poor,Which caus\'d her thus to send thee out of door.

Anne Bradstreet

At the dinner table when I was very little, I would hear people bickering the father saying something, the mother choosing to defend herself. To escape the bickering, I started modelling the soft bread with my fingers. With the dough of the French bread sometimes it was still warm I would make little figures. And I would line them up on the table and this was really my first sculpture.

Louise Bourgeois

England is very, very important to me, because in my family the English could do no wrong. When my father picked a mistress, it was always an English girl: if he made her pregnant, she could be shipped back to England and he would not be held responsible. It never happened, but I've made a lot of work called The English Can Do No Wrong.

Louise Bourgeois

Thou wilt draw nigh! Father it is no dream that Thou art near No dream that, in my sin and misery, I may look up to Thee, May hide beneath the shadow of Thy wings, From all the restlessness of outward things, And from my own heart's self-accusing fears For Thou art nigh.

Hetty Bowman

Clever father, clever daughter; clever mother, clever son.

Russian Proverb

To a father growing old nothing is dearer than a daughter.

Euripides

Let me first tell you one thing: It doesn't matter what the world says about Israel; it doesn't matter what they say about us anywhere else. The only thing that matters is that we can exist here on the land of our forefathers. And unless we show the Arabs that there is a high price to pay for murdering Jews, we won't survive.

David Ben Gurion

Poverty may be the mother of crime, but lack of good sense is the father

Jean de la Bruyere

Your grand-father taught me the politics of pride, your grandmother taught me the politics of poverty. I am beholden to both for the fine synthesis. To you, my darling daughter, I give only one message. It is the message of the morrow, the message of history. Believe only in the people, work only for their emancipation and equality. The paradise of God lies under the feet of your mother. The paradise of politics lies under the feet of the people.
