Parents Quotes

When Charles first saw our child Mary, he said all the proper things for a new father. He looked upon the poor little red thing and blurted, She's more beautiful than the Brooklyn Bridge.
Helen Hayes
The typical American of today has lost all the love of liberty, that his forefathers had, and all their disgust of emotion, and pride in self- reliance. He is led no longer by Davy Crocketts he is led by cheer leaders, press agents, word mongers, uplifters.
Henry Louis Mencken
The fundamental defect of fathers is that they want their children to be a credit to them.
Bertrand Russell
They do not leave home without American Express. ... Blame the moral carelessness that parents pass off as the gift of freedom as they cut their children loose like colorful kites and wish them an exciting flight.
Roger Rosenblatt
Start a program for gifted children, and every parent demands that his child be enrolled.
Thomas Andrew Bailey
I think that parents only get so offended by television because they rely on it as a babysitter and the sole educator of their kids.
Trey and Matt Stone Parker
Children begin by loving their parents. After a time they judge them. Rarely, if ever, do they forgive them.
Oscar Fingall O'Flahertie Wills Wilde
For thousands of years, father and son have stretched wistful hands across the canyon of time, each eager to help the other to his side, but neither quite able to desert the loyalties of his contemporaries. The relationship is always changing and hence always fragile nothing endures except the sense of difference.
Alan Valentine
Honesty may be the best policy, but it's important to remember that apparently, by elimination, dishonesty is the second-best policy.
George Carlin
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Seeing our Father in everything makes life one long thanksgiving and gives rest of the heart.
Hannah Whitall Smith
There is divine beauty in learning, just as there is human beauty in tolerance. To learn means to accept the postulate that life did not begin at my birth. Others have been here before me, and I walk in their footsteps. The books I have read were composed by generations of fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, teachers and disciples. I am the sum total of their experiences, their quests. And so are you.
Elie Wiesel
A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all other virtues.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
My father hated radio and could not wait for television to be invented so he could hate that too.
Peter De Vries
If a man withdraws his mind from the love of beauty, and applies it as sincerely to the love of the virtuous if, in serving his parents, he can exert his utmost strength if, in serving his prince, he can devote his life if in his intercourse with his friends, his words are sincere - although men say that he has not learned, I will certainly say that he has.
Confucius
If I was a father in a waiting room, and the nurse came out and said, 'Congratulations, it's a girl,' I think a good gag would be to get real mad and yell, 'A girl You must have me mixed up with THAT dork' and point to another father.
