Father Quotes

“My favorite job is being a father. I have four girls now. They’re a captive audience.”

 

Bruce Willis

“I’m much more proud of being a father than being an actor.”

 

Bruce Willis

“The things that I loved about Bob’s [Dylan] music – and I describe him in the book as the father of my country, which he really is – were things that just didn’t fit when I went to do my job. You know, I’d come out of a somewhat different circumstance and shoes – the clothes just didn’t fit.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“I wanted to be the reasonable voice of revenge for what I’d seen [my father] life come to.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“In the early years, I found a voice that was my voice and also partly my father’s voice. But isn’t that what you always do? Why do kids at 5 years old go into the closet and put their daddy’s shoes on? Hey, my kids do it.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“Work creates an enormous sense of self and I saw that in my mother. She was an enormous, towering figure to me in the best possible way. I picked up a lot of things from her in the way that I work… I also picked up a lot of the failings of when your father doesn’t have those things and that results in a house that turns into a minefield.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“I think I created my particular stage persona out of my dad’s life. And perhaps I even built it to suit him to some degree. I was looking for – when I was looking for a voice to mix with my voice, I put on my father’s work clothes, as I say in the book, and I went to work.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“Your secret yearnings and tearful pleadings will touch the heart of both the Father and the Son.”

 

Boyd K. Packer

“We could be like a father determined to provide everything for his family. He devotes every energy to that end and succeeds; only then does he discover that what they needed most, to be together as a family, has been neglected. And he reaps sorrow in place of contentment.”

 

Boyd K. Packer

“There is a falsehood that some are born with an attraction to their own kind, with nothing they can do about it. They are just ‘that way’ and can only yield to those desires. That is a malicious and destructive lie. While it is a convincing idea to some, it is of the devil. No one is locked into that kind of life. From our premoral life we were directed into a physical body. There is no mismatching of bodies and spirits. Boys are to become men-masculine, manly men-ultimately to become husbands and fathers. No one is predestined to a perverted use of these powers.”

 

Boyd K. Packer

“You are a child of God. He is father of your spirit. Spiritually you are of noble birth, the offspring of the King of Heaven. Fix that truth in your mind and hold to it. However many generations in your mortal ancestry, no matter what race or people you represent, the pedigree of your spirit can be written on a single line. You are a child of God!”

 

Boyd K. Packer

“The “magic if” is a tool invented by Stanislavski, the father of acting craft, is to help an actor make appropriate choices. Essentially, the “magic if” refers to the answer to the question, “What would I do if I were this character in this situation?” Note that the question is not “What would I do if I were in this situation?” What you would do may be very different from what the character would do. Your job, based on your analysis of the script, the scene, and the given circumstances regarding the who of your character, is to decide what he or she would do.”

 

Bruce Miller

“People don’t even recognize who the Founding Fathers of the United States were. They were exceptional human beings – when you signed the Declaration of Independence, that was a death warrant they signed their name to. You have to have courage to put your name on a death warrant against the most powerful nation in the world at that time. And yet, we didn’t honor who they really were. They were deists. They lived an enlightened belief system.”

 

Bruce H. Lipton

“All kids love to get dirty, but if I wandered into the garage, my father would say: ‘Son, you’re not going to have filthy hands like mine. You’re going into show business.'”

 

Bruce Forsyth

“My father earned every penny he had, and I would have loved to have bought him a Rolls-Royce because his whole life was cars. Sadly, he didn’t live to see the day when I could have done that for him, which still hurts.”

 

Bruce Forsyth

“Moses is our true founding father.”

 

Bruce Feiler

“…[O]ur Founding Fathers enshrined a constitutional separation of powers for the ages undeluded by the fantasy that angels would win elections.”

 

Bruce Fein

“Moses became Americas true founding father because he evangelized action; he justified risk. He gave ordinary people the courage to live with uncertainty.”

 

Bruce Feiler

“Fathers can find great inspiration in faith.”

 

Bruce Feiler

“Superman’s original name was Kal-El, or Swift God. His father’s name was Jor-El. Superman was clearly drawn as a modern-day god.”
