father Quotes

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.

Zulfikar Ali Bhutto

Simple, sincere people seldom speak much of their piety. It shows itself in acts rather than in words, and has more influence than homilies or protestations. Beth could not reason upon or explain the faith that gave her courage and patience to give up life, and cheerfully wait for death. Like a confiding child, she asked no questions, but left everything to God and nature, Father and Mother of us all, feeling sure that they, and they only, could teach and strengthen heart and spirit for this life and the life to come. She did not rebuke Jo with saintly speeches, only loved her better for her passionate affection, and clung more closely to the dear human love, from which our Father never means us to be weaned, but through which He draws us closer to Himself. She could not say, "I'm glad to go," for life was very sweet for her. She could only sob out, "I try to be willing," while she held fast to Jo, as the first bitter wave of this great sorrow broke over them together.

Alcott, Louisa May

Then, there's the modern mother-in-law. In her mid 40s, she is the compact car of her breed: efficient, trim, attractive and in harmony with her times. She's pretty stiff competition for the plain young matron who's overweight and under-financed. If there is going to be friction in this relationship, it could start from envy and resentment in the younger woman. But Father Time is on her side, even if Mother Nature played her a dirty trick

Abigail Van Buren

My family has never suggested to me that my identity or value to them depended on my station in life. I knew that they did not consider me any more or less valuable because I held some political office. They valued me as a husband and father, whether or not I won an election. Nor did they regard holding office on Capitol Hill or in the Missouri statehouse as the epitome of success. Quite the contrary, my family had endured numerous personal sacrifices because of my public positions.

John David Ashcroft

Necessity is the mother of invention, it is true, but its father is creativity, and knowledge is the midwife

Jonathan Schattke

In a husband there is only a man; in a married woman there is a man, a father, and mother, and a woman.

Honore de Balzac

It is easier for a father to have children than for children to have a real father.

Pope John XXIII

A father is a guy who has snapshots in his wallet where his money used to be.


When one has not had a good father, one must create one.

Friedrich Nietzsche

When a father gives to his son, both laugh; when a son gives to his father, both cry.

William Shakespeare

I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father's protection.

Sigmund Freud

A father's words are like a thermostat that sets the temperature in the house

Paul Lewis

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

J. August Strindberg

Small boy’s definition of Father’s Day: It’s just like Mother’s Day only you don’t spend so much.
