My Dad quotes by Anne Serling
#24. On a deeper level, the film [Seven Days in May] displays several themes that are important to my father throughout his career. Prime among these is not succumbing to fear born of ignorance. In the nuclear age, he seems to be telling us, we can't throw up our hands in helplessness over the enormity of the problem. With the stakes as dire as they are, we must all work positively to change things for the better. I think that is why he believes so firmly in the idea of the United Nations. As in 'Twilight Zone's' "The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street", my dad is warning us that the greatest threat we face is if a potential enemy uses our fears to get us to start destroying ourselves. #Quote by Anne Serling
My Dad quotes by Jason Fuchs
#25. I got stuck on the Peter Pan ride when I was nine years old with my dad at Disney World.

'Why is Peter Peter Pan, why is he in Neverland, how did he learn how to fly, etc.?' #Quote by Jason Fuchs

My Dad quotes by Alan Silberberg
#30. When you don't have something anymore, you learn to live without it." That's what my dad told me that first night after he found me sleeping inside a closet underneath a pile of my mom's clothes. All the different smells of her were still there and the memories were alive even if she wasn't.
I looked up into his face and wondered why would I ever want to learn to live without her? That felt like she really would be gone forever, and I wanted to limp on the broken piece of me so I could feel her there all the time. #Quote by Alan Silberberg
My Dad quotes by Marco Rubio
#31. My Dad used to tell us: 'En este pais, ustedes van a poder lograr todas las cosas que nosotros no pudimos' 'In this country, you will be able to accomplish all the things we never could.' #Quote by Marco Rubio
My Dad quotes by Ransom Riggs
#32. I couldn't stop myself, so I thought about all the bad things and I fed it and fed it until I was crying so hard I had to gasp for breath between sobs. I thought about how my great-grandparents had starved to death. I thought about their wasted bodies being fed to incinerators because people they didn't know hated them. I thought about how the children who lived in this house had been burned up and blown apart because a pilot who didn't care pushed a button. I thought about how my grandfather's family had been taken from him, and how because of that my dad grew up feeling like he didn't have a dad, and now I had acute stress and nightmares and was sitting alone in a falling-down house and crying hot, stupid tears all over my shirt. All because of a seventy-year-old hurt that had somehow been passed down to me like some poisonous heirloom, and monsters I couldn't fight because they were all dead, beyond killing or punishing or any kind of reckoning. At least my grandfather had been able to join the army and go fight them. What could I do? #Quote by Ransom Riggs
My Dad quotes by Fetty Wap
#33. People make their life really hard. It was as simple as this: My parents went to church. My grandfather was a bishop. My mom sang in the choir, my dad played the keyboard, and my uncle played the drums. I was into playing the drums, so I played the drums a lot for my uncle, and it got to the point where I was pretty nice at playing the drums. And he let me play every Sunday so, to me, going to church was fun. #Quote by Fetty Wap
My Dad quotes by Beverly Lewis
#34. I grew up Protestant. My dad was a Charismatic pastor of the Families of God denomination.

My Dad quotes by Jarod Kintz

My Dad quotes by Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
#37. I think my dad, when he works with my older son, puts the same kind ofpressure on him that he put on me - that perfectionist pressure. And that can work in two ways: It can make you a perfectionist yourself, or it can eventually break you in the long run. #Quote by Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
My Dad quotes by Cal Ripken, Jr.
#38. Even though my dad was a manager in the minor leagues, I still traveled around with him and saw it from the field out. Now, as an owner, you're kind of looking from the whole baseball activity from outside in, from a fan's perspective. #Quote by Cal Ripken, Jr.
My Dad quotes by Noah Galloway
#39. After mom left, I was doing well enough that I transitioned from the hospital room to sharing the room at the Mologne House with my dad. He was the only one of the family left on a permanent basis. It was just Dad and me in that one room. At times, that was pretty miserable! I would wake up in the morning and he'd be sitting there at this little table in the hotel room, drinking his coffee and just looking at me. I get it now; he was just being a dad. But while it was happening, I thought, What are you looking at, Dad? Quit staring at me. And then he also washed my clothes, which astounded me. He was doing things I'd never seen the man do before. So even with his annoying staring at me while I slept thing, I was grateful he was there. #Quote by Noah Galloway
My Dad quotes by Miriam Toews
#40. During that time, The Mouth came by to pray with us, and my dad began to spend his evenings sitting in the yellow lawn chair and staring at the highway, or down in the basement with his isotope material, finding comfort in the stability that's created from decay. #Quote by Miriam Toews
My Dad quotes by Mila Kunis
#41. My mom and my dad wanted my brother and I to have a better life, you know, better education, better jobs. It was probably harder, much, much harder, for my parents. When you're a kid, you can learn a language much more easily; I learned English in less than a year. #Quote by Mila Kunis
My Dad quotes by Ken Griffey, Jr.

#46. I was born on the other side of the tracks, in public housing in Brooklyn, New York. My dad never made more than $20,000 a year, and I grew up in a family that lost health insurance.

My Dad quotes by Karrine Steffans
#54. People are attracted to your light because they want it for themselves. It's like fireflies.

Then we'd go out the next night and get another firefly. That's how people are. #Quote by Karrine Steffans

And he has tried everything too: little hook next to the door, little bowl next to his bed, keychain makes a noise when you whistle. Nothing worked. So finally, this year for his birthday, the whole family chipped in - and we put him in a home. #Quote by Anthony Jeselnik

My Dad quotes by Libba Bray
#86. Sometimes I just want to go in a room and break things and scream. Like, it's so much pressure all the time and if you get upset or angry, people say, 'Are you on the rag of something?' And it's like I want to say, 'No. I'm just pissed off right now. Can't I just be pissed off? How come that's not okay for me?' Like my dad will say, 'I can't talk to you when you're hysterical.' And I'm totally not being hysterical! I'm just mad. And he's the one losing it. But then I feel embarrassed anyway. So I slap on that smile and pretend everything's okay even though it's not. #Quote by Libba Bray

My Dad quotes by King Krule
#89. I'm trying to create a collection of stories - the 'U.F.O.W.A.V.E.' songs are all stories. I haven't really taken direct lyrical influence from other songwriters, but my dad bought me a book of W.H. Auden's poems when I was younger, and the imagery really interested me. #Quote by King Krule
My Dad quotes by O'Shea Jackson, Jr.

My Dad quotes by Josh McDowell
#93. My father's life was changed right before my eyes [when he trusted Christ]. It was like someone reached down and switched on a light inside him. He touched alcohol only once after that. He got the drink only as far as his lips and that was it-after forty years of drinking! He didn't need it any more. Fourteen months later, he died form complications of his alcoholism. But in that fourteen-month period over a hundred people in the area around my tiny hometown committed their lives to Jesus Christ because of the change they saw in the town drunk, my dad. #Quote by Josh McDowell

My Dad quotes by Stephen Chbosky
#95. I hate you."
My sister said it different than she said it to my dad. She meant it with me.She really did.
"I love you," was all I could say in return.
"You're a freak, you know that? Everyone says so. They always have."
"I'm trying not to be."
Then, I turned around and walked to my room and closed my door and put my head under my pillow and let the quiet put things where they are supposed to be.[pp.28] #Quote by Stephen Chbosky
My Dad quotes by Jase Robertson
#96. I found the same excitement in hunting frogs and deer for the first time. The first time I went frog-hunting, I was dumb-founded that someone could have that much fun without doing something immoral or illegal. I was the ice chest man on my first hunt, which basically meant every time my dad caught a frog I would quickly open the lid and then shut it before the frog jumped out. I realized the best part was being the catcher. I don't want to brag, but I became one of the greatest frog catchers on the planet. #Quote by Jase Robertson

My Dad quotes by Tim Heidecker
#99. My dad is a very quick-witted, sarcastic, dry, humorous guy, whereas my mom's very silly, and that side of the family is very musical. #Quote by Tim Heidecker

My Dad quotes by Joyce Meyer
#103. When I was a teenager, I didn't get to do a lot of the things that other kids my age were doing because my dad was very controlling and he wouldn't allow me to go to school activities, like games and dances.

#106. My brothers always like to believe that my father pampered me and I am spoilt. While it is not true, they felt that way. As for my dad, I could not do anything wrong. So, if I did something wrong, I would put the blame on them, and he would shout at them. #Quote by Sonakshi Sinha
My Dad quotes by Kami Garcia
#107. Sometimes I'd find one of her homemade charms in my sock drawer or hanging above the door of my father's study. I had only asked what they were for once. My dad teased Amma whenever he found one, but I noticed that he never took any of them down. "Better safe than sorry." I guess he meant safe from Amma, who could make you plenty sorry. #Quote by Kami Garcia
My Dad quotes by Nina Riggs
#108. There: I discover a packet of unopened grief. My mother. I try to soft-belly breathe.

It is unexpected for her to find me here in Paris, but there is is. Somehow, an ocean away from my dad and the kids and almost everyone we know makes the distance away that she is feel even more boundless and profound. #Quote by Nina Riggs
My Dad quotes by Candis Cayne
#109. When I told my parents that I was starting my transition, my Dad said, 'Well that makes so much more sense 'cause I never saw you any other way and now it totally works.' #Quote by Candis Cayne
My Dad quotes by Keri Hilson
#110. My dad used to sing in a quartet. He loved everything: adult contemporary, anything smooth. He'd listen to the quartets. #Quote by Keri Hilson
My Dad quotes by Phuc Tran
#111. Maybe my dad was right: Maybe I was too sensitive. You people wasn't always a secret way of saying something bigoted. But I had heard it from a mechanic. I had heard it from a University of Pennsylvania alumnus. I had heard it from my father. In those instances, there lurked a subtle judgement about non-white races, yet I couldn't quite articulate it. #Quote by Phuc Tran
My Dad quotes by Ryan Giggs
#112. I had my footballing heroes such as Bryan Robson and Diego Maradona but my dad was a rugby league star, and he was my real hero. But the relationship with my mum was rocky and we saw things that would affect any youngster. #Quote by Ryan Giggs
My Dad quotes by Albert Finney
#113. My dad was great. He was very droll, very dry. #Quote by Albert Finney
My Dad quotes by Sarah Bird
#114. I guess that's what my dad did. Stopped agreeing with reality. I could do it for as long as it took me to get from my classroom to the office. He managed it for sixteen years. He must have had more mental discipline than me. Or maybe it wasn't that much of an effort to pretend that I didn't exist. #Quote by Sarah Bird
My Dad quotes by Richard Russo
#115. My dad had this rock hard body and would work 12- to 13-hour days. The guys he worked with were scrap-iron guys. Nobody on that road crew had read a book in 10 years, but there was something about the way they lived I really admired. #Quote by Richard Russo
My Dad quotes by Brendan Coyle
#116. My dad was a master butcher and I trained to be a butcher when I left school. I didn't enjoy it at the time but I love cooking now, so perhaps I would have been a chef. #Quote by Brendan Coyle
My Dad quotes by David Mamet
#117. My dad was an immigrant kid and a Democrat and a Jew, and we didn't know any Republicans in our group. So I grew up Democratic. My dad was a labor lawyer - a very hardworking guy, a one-horse labor lawyer - and then I went to hippie college and lived in the bubble. #Quote by David Mamet
My Dad quotes by Trevor Horn
#118. When we started making electronic music I imagined that the reaction we got from the rock musicians must have been similar to the one the beat groups got from people like my dad. #Quote by Trevor Horn
My Dad quotes by Ashlee Simpson
#119. I'm an artist, and I go in the studio and make my music. And then I'll give it to my dad and he does what he does. And he does, you know, the press, and figuring out shows and whatnot. When it comes to my artistic freedom, he doesn't, like, step on my toes or anything. #Quote by Ashlee Simpson
My Dad quotes by Rob Lowe
#120. My parents did divorce, but my dad has always been present for me and loving me and my mom as well when she was alive. #Quote by Rob Lowe
My Dad quotes by Larry The Cable Guy
#121. My dad was a non-denominational preacher, actually a Congregationalist which is really where all congregations come to congregate. That's why it's called a Congregationalist. Later on in life, he just became a non-denominational preacher, kind of a fire and brimstone type guy. That's how I grew up. #Quote by Larry The Cable Guy
My Dad quotes by Cassandra Clare
#122. Alec pulled his knees up to his chest and looked thoughtfully at Jace. "I know," he said. "I'm not jealous. I always knew, from the first, that everyone thought you were better than me. My dad thought it. The Clave thought it. Izzy and Max looked up to you as the great warrior they wanted to be like. But the day you asked me to be your parabatai, I knew you meant that you trusted me enough to ask me to help you. You were telling me that you weren't this lone and self-sufficient warrior able to do everything alone. You needed me. So I realized that there was one person who didn't assume you were better than me. You. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
My Dad quotes by Pedro Pascal
#123. I just went to your typical public schools, and my dad would take us to the movies every week, or he'd buy scalped tickets to San Antonio Spurs games. I remember I was four or five years old and my parents, who were very young, took us to see The Police in Austin, and Iggy Pop opened. #Quote by Pedro Pascal
My Dad quotes by Max Winkler
#124. I don't mind talking about my dad because he's such a good dude. #Quote by Max Winkler
My Dad quotes by June Mottershead
#125. A reply dated 13 May finally arrived from the town clerk. Mr Mottershead could open the zoo subject to: 1) the type of animals being limited to those already described in previous correspondence; 2) the estate should not be used as an amusement park, racing track or public dance hall; and 3) no animals were to be kept within a distance of a hundred feet from the existing road.

This necessitated the purchase of an additional strip of land between the road and the estate, which would have to be securely enclosed, but which couldn't be used for animals. (First it was used as a children's playground and later became a self-service cafe.) Somehow my dad managed to get a further mortgage of £350 to pay for the land and fencing.

Of all the conditions, the most damaging in the long term was the last: the zoo was allowed 'no advertisement, sign or noticeboard which can be seen from the road above-mentioned'. Only a small sign at the entrance to the estate would be permitted, which meant the lodge, which was a good twenty-five yards from the road was completely invisible to any passing car. This would remain a problem for a very long time. For many years, the night before bank holidays, Dad and his friends would have to go out and hang temporary posters under the official road signs on the Chester bypass. The police turned a blind eye as long as they were taken down shortly afterwards. #Quote by June Mottershead
My Dad quotes by Mary Badham
#126. I lost my parents very early in my life. My mom died three weeks after I graduated from high school, and my dad died two years after I got married. #Quote by Mary Badham
My Dad quotes by Eric Shanteau
#127. Obviously, losing a parent is very difficult. I miss my dad every day, but I know he would be proud to see me continuing to swim and going for another shot at the Olympics. #Quote by Eric Shanteau
My Dad quotes by Paul Lynde
#128. Politicians ... talk in generalities and lies, and I think they've caused all our grief. They're so awful, they're really funny. I hate thinking this because my dad loved politics. #Quote by Paul Lynde
My Dad quotes by DJ Ashba
#129. The fact that my dad was never around gave me a lot of determination. It really set this fire full of fuel, so to speak. It didn't matter what anybody was telling me, how many times I got rejected, because it was never as bad as being rejected by your own father. #Quote by DJ Ashba
My Dad quotes by Ezekiel Emanuel
#130. Our dad hugged us and kissed us so much that some friends and relatives complained that he was going to turn us into sissies or homosexuals. But my dad didn't care. Let them raise their kids in a reserved and reticent way. He grew up in Israel, and his boys were going to be hugged and kissed by their father and know they were loved. #Quote by Ezekiel Emanuel
My Dad quotes by Linus Roache
#131. When I went to drama school, I thought that everybody would think I was only there because my dad was on TV. #Quote by Linus Roache
My Dad quotes by Jorma Taccone
#132. I was just blown away by everything my dad was doing, every play. It was amazing to be able to go as a young person to the theater and see these visuals and how creative it could be. More than anything it was realizing you could do that as a life path. #Quote by Jorma Taccone
My Dad quotes by William Shatner
#133. My dad was good with actions. #Quote by William Shatner
My Dad quotes by David Sedaris
#134. He didn't understand that it's all connected, that one subject leads to another and forms a kind of chain that rises its head and nods like cobra when you're sucking on a bong after three days of no sleep. On acid, it's even wilder and appears to eat things. But not having gone to college, my dad had no concept of a well-rounded liberal arts education. #Quote by David Sedaris
My Dad quotes by Nicole Richie
#135. When my dad divorced my mom it was kind of like him leaving me also. #Quote by Nicole Richie
My Dad quotes by Doug Stanhope
#136. I'm a bit of a potty mouth. My dad used to wash out my mouth with soap, but that was just to get rid of any traces of his DNA. #Quote by Doug Stanhope
My Dad quotes by Elvis Costello
#137. My grandfather and my father disagreed about music, not least of all because my dad wanted to improvise. It wasn't just that he wanted to play different music; it was just that he came off the dots. #Quote by Elvis Costello
My Dad quotes by Dylan Lauren
#138. My favorite place in the world is my dad's house in Montauk. #Quote by Dylan Lauren
My Dad quotes by Rachel Vincent
#139. Hang on, Pa, don't reach for yer shotgun just yet," I said, grinning over the protective streak I found funny, when there wasn't actually anything to shelterme from. "We were just circlin' the wagons, not having an orgy."
My dad suddenly looked like he might be sick. "Please don't ever say that word again."
"Wagons? #Quote by Rachel Vincent
My Dad quotes by Rashida Jones
#140. My dad always tell me to make decisions from love and not from fear. #Quote by Rashida Jones
My Dad quotes by Christopher Buckley
#141. Her parents, Austin Taylor and Kathleen Taylor, were big deals in Vancouver - they were civic leaders, and he raced horses in the Kentucky Derby - and my mother grew up a debutante. And when she and my dad were married, there were about a thousand guests at that reception. #Quote by Christopher Buckley
My Dad quotes by Diane Warren
#142. When I was small, my parents came back from Tijuana, and my dad bought me a very small acoustic guitar. I loved it. I started making up my own songs right away. #Quote by Diane Warren
My Dad quotes by Natalie Cole
#143. I thank my dad for leaving me such a wonderful, wonderful heritage. #Quote by Natalie Cole
My Dad quotes by Jason Wu
#144. My parents loved me, and I think they realized that I was probably not going to have a normal 9-to-5 job. For the longest time, my dad thought that I was just going to be home until I was, like, 35, which, weirdly, is completely normal in Asian families. #Quote by Jason Wu
My Dad quotes by Kami Garcia
#145. - L, did you know we're reenacting the Salem witch trials in English
- Haven't been memorizing your case file? Do you even look in your
backpack anymore?
- Did you know my dad is videotaping it? I do. Because I walked in on his lunch date with Mrs. English.
- Ewww.
- What should we do?
- I guess we should start calling her Ms. English?
- Not funny, L. #Quote by Kami Garcia
My Dad quotes by Imogen Poots
#146. My dad moved to London in his early 20s and didn't really go back. So the irony is I've spent lots and lots of time in Ireland, but not with my dad. I've shot films in Belfast, where he's from. And I've shot in Dun Laoghaire. Which is great. And I've shot in Dublin. #Quote by Imogen Poots
My Dad quotes by Mike Weir
#147. The only other time I can recall my dad getting upset at me was when I missed a hockey practice. My parents were away, so my buddy and I decided to skip it. I never told my dad about it, but he found out from the coach. #Quote by Mike Weir
My Dad quotes by Nikki Reed
#148. My dad is a man that, for as long as I can remember, has kept a book of favorite things his kids say. #Quote by Nikki Reed
My Dad quotes by Phil Daniels
#149. I grew up near King's Cross station in London, living in an apartment block where my dad was a caretaker. #Quote by Phil Daniels
My Dad quotes by Charli XCX
#150. [My mom] worries about me going and taking drugs, whereas my dad advises me on what drugs to take and what ones not to take. So, they're very different. #Quote by Charli XCX
My Dad quotes by Richie Sambora
#151. Going through the grief period of my dad and losing him - that was the worst thing because you know when you get that call. When you are seven, eight years old, you have that almost vision in your mind of what that's going to be like and what your going to feel like and it doesn't prepare you. #Quote by Richie Sambora
My Dad quotes by Rihanna
#152. I definitely want to go and do some more research. My dad used to make me sit outside on the steps all night long, looking for a UFO flying by and I had to do that for years. #Quote by Rihanna
My Dad quotes by Scott Adkins
#153. I do find violence entertaining, but that doesn't make me a bad person. I grew up watching all these action films when I was a kid. My dad would bring back 'Rambo' and whatever, and we'd watch it together. It's not affected me in any way other than I just appreciate the entertainment value of violence on film. #Quote by Scott Adkins
My Dad quotes by Steve Sabol
#154. My Dad hated his job. He sold overcoats, but he wanted to make movies. He had a failed career working with the Ritz Brothers - they were like the Marx Brothers, only a tier below. I always had a picture in my mind of him in a straw hat. #Quote by Steve Sabol
My Dad quotes by Anna Banks
#155. My dad always told me that holding a grudge is like swallowing poison and expecting the other person to die. #Quote by Anna Banks
My Dad quotes by Devon Monk
#156. My dad told me he knew where to find Zay. Which meant I had to cooperate with him.
"Do you see what we have accomplished together? The healing of souls with the magic you carry. We have healed souls in death. With light and dark magic."
"We? No, you stuck your hands in my chest and stole my magic and threw it at them. If you try that again, you won't have hands. Where's Zayvion?"
Okay, maybe I was a little rusty on the whole cooperation thing. #Quote by Devon Monk
My Dad quotes by Lee Westwood
#157. Listen, everything I did in my childhood was competitive. Everything we did my dad made it into a game to win. We used to drive my mum nuts. #Quote by Lee Westwood
My Dad quotes by Mark Walden
#158. Good night's sleep?' she enquired, still smiling.

'For Wing, certainly,' Otto replied, 'though possibly not anyone within a hundred yards of him. If whales snore, that's what it sounds like.'

Wing smiled guiltily. 'I did warn you.'

'It's a sign of a good healthy set of lungs, at least that's what my dad always used to tell me,' Laura said, chuckling, 'though I think there were a few nights where my mum was not far from taking a kitchen knife and checking to see if his were as healthy as he claimed, if you know what I mean.'

Otto nodded in agreement. 'I wonder if you snore after you get hit with a sleeper?'

'Don't even think about it,' Wing replied. #Quote by Mark Walden
My Dad quotes by Lily Collins
#159. My dad knows how to tell a story. He'd make me laugh by doing all the different voices. #Quote by Lily Collins
My Dad quotes by Gina Rodriguez
#160. Every morning, my dad would have me looking in the mirror and repeat, 'Today is going to be a great day; I can, and I will.' #Quote by Gina Rodriguez
My Dad quotes by Amy Winehouse
#161. My dad always had music playing around us and he was always a happy chirpy man with a beautiful voice. I was always singing around the house and I assumed that's what all families did. It wasn't until I went through that nasty teenage stage that I started to realise that wasn't the case. #Quote by Amy Winehouse
My Dad quotes by Sarah Rees Brennan
#162. She thought she was getting out of the Water Rising clean, because she didn't see her father anywhere around: there was only Ash and Lillian sitting at a table, and a few other patrons at as much of a distance from Ash and Lillian as they could get. She made for the door, at which point Lillian caught her arm.

"Where are you going?"

"Uh," said Kami, eyeballing her wildly. "I'm going to buy some drugs."

Lillian stared. "I beg your pardon?"

"This is a really stressful time for everyone," said Kami. "So I thought maybe I could buy a little weed, take the edge off. I might be a while. This is a very clean-living town, apart from all the murders, so I don't actually know any drug dealers. I realize Jared kind of looks like one, but he's not, which is a shame because I think the drug dealer's girlfriend gets her drugs free."

"I realize you are attempting to be humorous," said Lillian, after a pause during which she stared some more. "I don't understand it."

"Hey, you're not the only family with a legacy. 'Glass' rhymes with 'sass.' Have you met my dad?"

"I have had that dubious pleasure," said Lillian. "He is, in fact, meant to be meeting me in order to, and I quote, 'teach me to integrate better with society, display leadership skills, win over the populace, and stop acting like a robot princess from space.' I admit that the humor in his humor escapes me as well." She paused and suddenly looked determined #Quote by Sarah Rees Brennan
My Dad quotes by Skeet Ulrich
#163. My mom's been married three times; my dad has been married a lot. I didn't really see my dad that much. #Quote by Skeet Ulrich
My Dad quotes by Marco Rubio
#164. My dad was a bartender that worked banquets. #Quote by Marco Rubio
My Dad quotes by Tom Cruise
#165. I remember looking at my dad and wanting to understand him. I didn't want to just write the guy off. He was lost. I can't speak specifically in terms of why and how he got to where he was - that was his journey. All I can tell you is, he was overwhelmed by life ... My mother basically did all the work, and then they got separated and I didn't see him for a long time. He didn't try to help the family financially or spiritually, and I lived with the effects of the chaos. #Quote by Tom Cruise
My Dad quotes by Melissa Harris-Perry
#166. Undoubtedly, the biggest influence on my life is my mom, followed pretty closely by my dad. #Quote by Melissa Harris-Perry
My Dad quotes by Dolph Lundgren
#167. My dad was in the Swedish armed forces, he was always reading up on different weapons from the Americans and Soviets. When I was a kid, I was in bed looking at his books, reading about the Red Army. So I was very aware of it. I had an interest in military matters ever since. #Quote by Dolph Lundgren
My Dad quotes by Lukas Haas
#168. One day when I was like 9, I heard the Beatles on the radio, and I asked my dad who they were. He told me they were the best band in the world, and I became obsessed. He started giving me their albums in sequential order, and I listened to them - and only them - until I was probably in high school. #Quote by Lukas Haas
My Dad quotes by M.I.A.
#169. My dad grew up in a mud hut and studied by candlelight. He was 14 when he got a scholarship to Russia. He was super clever - the cleverest person. He landed in 5ft of snow, and was alone at 14, studying science and engineering. He didn't have a bed, and he slept on a table. #Quote by M.I.A.
My Dad quotes by Rick Riordan
#170. Tyson okay?" I asked. The question seemed to take my dad by surprise. He's fine. Doing much better than I expected. Though "peanut butter" is a strange battle cry. "You let him fight?" Stop changing the subject! You realize what you are asking me to do? My palace will be destroyed. "And Olympus might be saved." Do you have any idea how long I've worked on remodeling this palace? The game room alone took six hundred years. "Dad - " Very well! It shall be as you say. But my son, pray this works. "I am praying. I'm talking to you, right? #Quote by Rick Riordan
My Dad quotes by Zendaya
#171. My mother's proud of where she's from, and her history, and her past, and same with my dad. I have roots in Africa. Like, I am from Africa as well as from Germany, and I am very proud of that. #Quote by Zendaya
My Dad quotes by Tori Amos
#172. I had a very strict upbringing with my dad and was very close to my mum, who was extremely loving. #Quote by Tori Amos
My Dad quotes by Mitch Winehouse
#173. I felt awful as I drove away to live with Melody in Barnet. I stayed with her for six months before I moved in with Jane. Looking back now, I was a coward for allowing the situation to go on for so long, but I wanted to keep everybody happy. Strangely, after I left I started seeing more of the kids than I had before. My friends thought that Amy didn't seem much affected by the divorce, and when I asked her if she wanted to talk about it, she said, 'You're still my dad and Mum's still my mum. What's to talk about? #Quote by Mitch Winehouse
My Dad quotes by Kelley Armstrong
#174. I walked over to the paper and bent as the pencil began scribbling across it.
You look OK. Are you OK?
"Liz?" A stupid question. Liz was the only poltergeist I knew. But if she was here, that meant. "Chloe?" My heart started thudding again. "Where's Chloe. Did they - ?"
She's outside.
I took a deep breath. "Good. Okay. My dad's there, too?"
I watched the paper. Nothing happened.
"Liz? My dad is with her, right? She called him, didn't she?"
"What do you mean she couldn't. She has her cell - " No, she didn't. We hadn't taken them into the forest. If Chloe had managed to follow me straight from there ...
I swore. "Tell her to get to a pay phone. Call collect. Get my dad and - "
No time. They're packing the van.
"Then you ride with me. You can find out where we go, and return and Chloe - "
We're getting you out.
"What? No. Absolutely not. Tell Chloe - "
Girls rule :D #Quote by Kelley Armstrong
My Dad quotes by Samuel Johnson

My Dad quotes by Justin Halpern
#176. Eventually my dad got home from work and set his briefcase down.
'So. How was practice?' he asked
'It was good. Why? Did you hear it wasn't?' I said, trying to keep my cool.
'Son, no offense, but you play Little League. It's not the Yankees. I don't get daily reports about who's hitting the shit out of the ball #Quote by Justin Halpern

My Dad quotes by Christopher Titus
#179. The only way to tell my Dad something is to write it on a note, and tie it to a brick, and throw it through a window. Of course, now Dad's armed with a brick. #Quote by Christopher Titus
My Dad quotes by Benicio Del Toro
#180. My grandfather was a lawyer, my dad was a lawyer, my mum was a lawyer, I got an uncle who's a lawyer, I got cousins that are lawyers. #Quote by Benicio Del Toro
My Dad quotes by Michelle Phan
#181. My dad and I had been close - he called me Tuyet Bang, Vietnamese for 'avalanche,' because of my nonstop energy. I took a lot from him, like being a risk taker, and I know how much he loved my mother. #Quote by Michelle Phan
My Dad quotes by Robin Thede
#182. My dad worked three jobs and was a teacher. My mother was a teacher's aid, making, like, $3 an hour. My father went on to get his master's and became active in all these minority engineering programs. And my mother started running for public office. All that happened after the kids were adults. But I'm insanely proud of them. #Quote by Robin Thede
My Dad quotes by Kiersten White
#183. I heard a thunk that sounded like Lend's head against the door. "This is stupid. Let my dad take care of it. He's been contacting everyone he knows who is still with IPCA, and - "
I walked over and put my own head against the door, pretending there wasn't anything between us. "And it doesn't matter. IPCA isn't the same. There are new people in charge, and they aren't messing around. I can help her. Raquel would do the same for me. She has done the same for me."
"I don't see what good it's going to do for you to waltz back in there and - "
"Can I tango back in there, instead? So much sexier than the waltz."
"Evie, I'm serious! You just broke out of IPCA! You're going to get tased and tagged again."
"I really doubt it. Faerie backup, remember?" I went to the window and looked down into the yard, where Reth stood in the midst of the dead brown grass, looking like a god of spring and sunshine who had seriously lost his way. He was staring straight up at me, although how he knew I'd look straight down that instant I had no idea. Creeper.
I shivered a little, still not breaking eye contact with Reth. I was in over my head, I knew that, and I knew I'd owe him even more after this. I had no doubt I'd pay in a way I really didn't want to, and soon.
The door shook as Lend kicked it. "Pretty much the only idea I like less than you walking back into IPCA is you walking back into IPCA with only Jack and Reth for protection."
"They owe me."

My Dad quotes by Mickey Spillane

My Dad quotes by Dylan Lauren

My Dad quotes by Laila Ali
#187. My dad is my dad. I love him, and I realize that he's as famous as he is. Of course, I don't look at him like everybody else does. Because I know his little faults, I know his weaknesses. Nobody's perfect. But he's my dad. Just like your dad is to you. #Quote by Laila Ali
My Dad quotes by Emily T. Wierenga
#188. It was about my spirit crying "Abba!" It was about years of hating the church for its hypocrisy and men for the way I'd always wanted my dad to hold me #Quote by Emily T. Wierenga
My Dad quotes by Vanessa Lengies
#189. When I was younger, my dad was making a music video for a band in Montreal. I was goofing around and being a ham. An agent was there and she was telling me, 'Hey, do you think you'd want to go out on auditions?' I was like, 'Yeah, what's an audition? Sure, I'll do it.' #Quote by Vanessa Lengies
My Dad quotes by Rachel Hawkins
#190. Bet you didn't know that when you agreed to be 'betrothed' to me, huh? Husband-eviscerating apparently runs in my family."
Still no reaction, and I felt shame curl in my belly. "Of course, you also didn't know you were getting a damon bride," I added in a softer tone. Very few people knew what my dad really was. I'd always assumed Cal had found out the same night I did.
That's why I was really surprised when he raised his head and said, "I knew."
"I knew what you were then, Sophie. Your dad told me before the betrothal. And he told me about your grandmother, and what happened to your grandfather."
I shook my head. "Then,why?"
Cal took his time before answering. "For one thing, I like your dad. He's done good things for Prodigium. And it-" He broke off with a long exhale. "It felt like some kind of honor, you know? Being asked to be the head of the Council's son-in-law. Plus, your dad, he,uh,told me a lot about you."
My voice was barely above a whisper. "What did he say?"
"That you were smart, and strong. Funny. That you had trouble using your powers, but you were always trying to use them to help people." He shrugged. "I thought we'd be a good match."
The vast dining room suddenly felt very small, like it consisted only of this table and me and Cal. "Look, Sophie," he started to say.
But before he could finish, Jenna walked in. "I am so glad I still get to eat human food, because that bacon smells insane..." she said, #Quote by Rachel Hawkins
My Dad quotes by Christopher Titus
#191. Normal people, want to be accepted. Screwed up people, want to be accepted. It's one of the few things we have in common. My whole life, all I ever wanted was my dad to pat me on the top of the head and go, Who's a good boy ? Who's a good boy? But, instead, all he ever did was wipe peanut butter on the end of my nose and laugh while I tried to lick it off. #Quote by Christopher Titus
My Dad quotes by Jane Green
#192. Horrible as this is to admit, I think I cried less because my dad was dying than for the dad I had never had. #Quote by Jane Green
My Dad quotes by Jase Robertson
#193. My dad has always viewed manhood as a big deal; he likes to say the most endangered species on the planet is manly men. #Quote by Jase Robertson
My Dad quotes by Chely Wright

#195. I grew up with my mom always talking to everyone everywhere, whether it was professionally or in a coffee shop. And my dad was the same way. So I love being able to talk to people, hear their stories and be inspired. #Quote by Katherine Schwarzenegger
My Dad quotes by Judd Apatow
#196. My dad was a big fan of comedy. He wanted to be a stand-up. He loved Lenny [Bruce]. He also loved Lord Buckley and jazz and stuff. He was a hipster. My parents were kind of beatnik-y, you know, for Salt Lake City. But my humor, I think, came from wanting to disarm people before they hit me. #Quote by Judd Apatow
My Dad quotes by Tanner Berryhill
#197. My dad knew that if I wanted to make a career out of it, I needed to go to NASCAR rather than dirt racing. Personally, I like dirt racing a little bit more. It's a little more fun. #Quote by Tanner Berryhill

My Dad quotes by George Saunders
#202. Dad had once said, Trust your mind, Rob. If it smells like shit but has writing across it that says Happy Birthday and a candle stuck down in it, what is it?
Is there icing on it? he'd said.
Dad had done that thing of squinting his eyes when an answer was not quite there yet. #Quote by George Saunders
My Dad quotes by Evangeline Lilly
#203. People were fed up with reality shows about midgets getting married and weird Jerry Springer talk shows. There had been a real dry spell of intelligent family-oriented viewing: the type of program that Mom, Dad and the kids can all watch together. With 'Lost,' there are just so many characters for people to invest in. #Quote by Evangeline Lilly
My Dad quotes by Melissa Etheridge
#204. I can be a rock star with a television show and still have a self-esteem problem. So it's nice to have your dad go, 'Hey Melissa, I'm proud of you - you're doing good.' #Quote by Melissa Etheridge

My Dad quotes by Eliezer Yudkowsky
#207. For an instant Harry imagined his own Mum and Dad in Azkaban with the Dementors sucking out their life, draining away the happy memories of their love for him. Just for an instant, before his imagination blew a fuse and called an emergency shutdown and told him never to imagine that again. #Quote by Eliezer Yudkowsky
My Dad quotes by Louise Rennison
#208. When we did eventually get to the party - me walking next to Dad's Volvo driving at five miles an hour - I had a horrible time. Everyone laughed at first but then more or less ignored me. In a mood of defiant stuffed oliveness I did have a dance by myself but things kept crashing to the floor around me. The host asked if I would sit down. I had a go at that but it was useless. In the end I was at the gate for about an hour before Dad arrived. #Quote by Louise Rennison
My Dad quotes by Devon Monk
#209. Dad hit lecture mode from word one. #Quote by Devon Monk
My Dad quotes by NeNe Leakes

My Dad quotes by Yoon Ha Lee
#211. Above them, stars shine in constellations that Jenny recognizes from the ceiling of her father's house, the ones Mom and Dad helped her put up when she was in third grade. Constellations with names like Fire Truck and Ladybug Come Home, constellations that you won't find in any astronomer's catalogue. #Quote by Yoon Ha Lee
My Dad quotes by Keri Russell
#212. I know not every mom is a secret KGB spy, but every mom has this whole other life. Every dad and every person has this whole other life. #Quote by Keri Russell

possible than ever before to have a great career and be a great dad. #Quote by Scott Behson
My Dad quotes by Courtney C. Stevens
#215. It's as if he wants me to say he could have stopped his dad, so he's handing me a whip to beat him. But I won't, because I'm glad he hid. Glad he's beside me instead of six feet under. #Quote by Courtney C. Stevens
My Dad quotes by Sarah Mlynowski
#216. Dad? Um, listen. I have kind of a crazy story for you ... #Quote by Sarah Mlynowski
My Dad quotes by Krystal Sutherland
#217. Mother. Father. I have news," I announced.
Dad looked up from an article about one of the Kardashians, "You've been conscripted to the war? What decade are you speaking from?"
"Ugh, fine: Home-Daddy, Mama P., I got a live tweet coming at you. Better?"
"Oh God, go back to World War Two, please," said Mom. #Quote by Krystal Sutherland
My Dad quotes by Miranda Kenneally

My Dad quotes by Rafe Esquith
#220. You hear terrible stories because there'll be a story about some terrible kid, but most of the kids I work with are terrific kids. They're poor, maybe their families are broken, so they're not coming home to a mom and dad and a nice dinner every night. But these kids are capable. #Quote by Rafe Esquith
My Dad quotes by Dr. Tony Beizaee

My Dad quotes by Diogo Morgado
#222. It makes you observe small details; even if it's just a kid playing with his dad, if you watch them closely, you can use that in your work. It helps you fully understand people better. #Quote by Diogo Morgado
My Dad quotes by A.S. King
#223. I've never understood white people who can't admit they're white. I mean, white isn't just a color. And maybe that's the problem for them. White is a passport. It's a ticket. The world is a white amusement park and your white skin buys you into it. A woman in economy argued with me about this once. She said, "I've heard this idea and it makes me uncomfortable."

"It probably should," I said.

Dad and I have been broke since he got cancer and sometimes he can't put the heat on over sixty-two or put food in the fridge, but we were always white and he always made sure I knew that. Which sounds stupid because how can a person not know they're white, right?

You don't have to be racist to not know you're white.

But sometimes you do. And Marla has no idea she's white or that the whole world was made for people like her. #Quote by A.S. King
My Dad quotes by John Grisham
#224. Percy had never owned a ball or a glove or a bat, had never played catch with his dad, had never dreamed of beating the Yankee. In fact he'd probably never dreamed of leaving the cotton patch. That thought was almost overwhelming. #Quote by John Grisham
My Dad quotes by S.C. Stephens
#225. How is it you are all here together?"
Dad frowned as he gave Mom a pointed glance. "Your mother spotted Gavin in baggage claim . . . from clear across the room. #Quote by S.C. Stephens
My Dad quotes by Laurie Halse Anderson
#226. That's such bullshit, Mythology repeated by parents because it lets them force their kids into sports and push them too hard by pretending that in the end it will pay off with the holy scholarship. You know how many kids get a free ride? Hardly any. Like, maybe fourteen.' -Finn (165) #Quote by Laurie Halse Anderson
My Dad quotes by Adam Sandler
#227. Back to school to prove to Dad that I'm not a fool. #Quote by Adam Sandler
My Dad quotes by Tim Schafer

My Dad quotes by Octavia E. Butler
#230. These things frighten people. It's best not to talk about them." "But, Dad, that's like ... like ignoring a fire in the living room because we're all in the kitchen, and, besides, house fires are too scary to talk about. #Quote by Octavia E. Butler
My Dad quotes by Brad Pitt
#231. There are no secrets at our house. We tell the kids, 'Mom and Dad are going off to kiss.' They go, 'Eww, gross!' But we demand it. #Quote by Brad Pitt
My Dad quotes by John Green
#232. But I want to show Hazel Grace the basement," Augustus said. "Just Hazel," I said. "So show Just Hazel the basement," said his dad. #Quote by John Green
My Dad quotes by Kimberly Willis Holt
#233. The Mozart sonata Dad picked out begins to play. When we hear the first note, we open the sacks and the ladybugs escape through the opening, taking flight. It's as if someone has dumped rubies from heaven. Soon they will land on the plants in search of bollworm eggs. But right now they are magic-red ribbons flying over our heads, weaving against the pink sky, dancing up there with Mozart. #Quote by Kimberly Willis Holt
My Dad quotes by Aimee L. Salter
#234. I don't know. Girls are just . . . weird," Matt grumbled. "You're ready to forgive Dex at the drop of the hat, but you're pissy with me because I don't want you to get hurt. Karyn's annoyed because I took you home last night, even though she told me to. And Mom's mad because I'm not talking to Dad. But you all smile and tell me everything's fine. What is it with you? Why are you mad all the time and pretending you aren't? #Quote by Aimee L. Salter
My Dad quotes by Clyde DeSouza
#235. Every time you think of your dad, you're
resurrecting him. Why shouldn't he continue to live
in this world while resting in the other? #Quote by Clyde DeSouza
My Dad quotes by Kent Nerburn
#236. It is much easier to become a father than to be one. #Quote by Kent Nerburn
My Dad quotes by Justin Halpern
#237. Who's going to take care of it? You? ... Son, you came in the house yesterday with sh*t on your hands. Humansh*t. I don't know how that happened, but if someone has shit on their hands, it's an indicator that maybe the whole responsibility thing isn't for them. -Dad #Quote by Justin Halpern
My Dad quotes by Marisha Pessl
#238. Dad was a man who, due to his underprivileged background perhaps, never hesitated when it came to the verbs to get or to take. He was always getting something off the ground, his act together, his hands dirty, the show on the road, someone's goat, the message, out more, on with things, lost, laid, away with murder. He was also always taking charge, the bull by the horns, back the night, something in stride, someone to the cleaners, a rain check, an axe to something, Manhattan. #Quote by Marisha Pessl
My Dad quotes by Robert T. Kiyosaki
#239. Most people go along with the crowd. They do things because everybody else does it. #Quote by Robert T. Kiyosaki
My Dad quotes by Mike Kinsella
#240. Cause The one thing that I learned from dad besides the cheap stuff fucks you up as much as the stuff on the top shelf does is it doesn't matter what you say or think, or wish you said but didn't say- just what you do. #Quote by Mike Kinsella
My Dad quotes by Shailene Woodley
#241. There's been times when I've had heartbreaking moments and I'm like, 'I can't believe you said that,' or 'I can't believe you did that'. And it hurts, it still hurts, and it'll always hurt, but I've never had somebody that I truly cared about just walk out on me, whether it was a boyfriend, or an aunt, mom or dad. #Quote by Shailene Woodley
My Dad quotes by Barbara Delinsky
#242. life isn't black or white. There isn't only one picture that's perfect. It's about piecing together shades of gray to make something quite stunning. And the picture shifts. That's another Dad-ism. Remember his sea shadows? Each time the shadow moves, there's a new image. Only sometimes those clouds are stuck up there, so we're the ones who have to move to see it. #Quote by Barbara Delinsky
