Abbie Cornish
I'm one of five kids and we lived on a massive farm in New South Wales with my mum and dad.
Abigail Van Buren
It is a sad commentary of our times when our young must seek advice and counsel from 'Dear Abby' instead of going to Mom and Dad.
Ace Frehley
I asked my daughter when she was 16, What's the buzz on the street with the kids? She's going, to be honest, Dad, most of my friends aren't into Kiss. But they've all been told that it's the greatest show on Earth.
Adam Lambert
My dad is a Deadhead, my mom's a Jewish-American princess from Jersey.
Adam Sandler
Feels good to try, but playing a father, I'm getting a little older. I see now that I'm taking it more serious and I do want that lifestyle.
Adam Sandler
I never had a speech from my father 'this is what you must do or shouldn't do' but I just learned to be led by example. My father wasn't perfect.
Adam Sandler
I mean, I look at my dad. He was twenty when he started having a family, and he was always the coolest dad. He did everything for his kids, and he never made us feel like he was pressured. I know that it must be a great feeling to be a guy like that.
Adam Sandler
The problem with me, as far as getting married and having a family, is that my comedy is so important to me. So I don't know if I'll ever be as good a dad as my dad.
Adele
There is nothing that would upset me more than my dad being bribed by the press. It's like, 'Just let them run it, then. Don't you give them ammunition.'
Ahmet Zappa
I miss my Dad. My Dad loved cheesy monster movies, so we'd have Godzilla movie marathons. Those are some of my favorite memories, laughing at how the monster outfits were so bad, like black garbage bags for heads.
Al Pacino
My dad was in the army. World War II. He got his college education from the army. After World War II he became an insurance salesman. Really, I didn't know my dad very well. He and my mother split up after the war. I was raised by my maternal grandmother and grandfather, and by my mother.
Al Unser
Dad taught me everything I know. Unfortunately, he didn't teach me everything he knows.
Alan Cumming
My mum always told me I was precious, while my dad always told me I was worthless. I think that's a good grounding for a balanced life.
Alastair Campbell
My dad, Donald, was a vet and had a practice in Yorkshire. Cats and dogs were his bread and butter, but his greatest love was large animals.
Albert Brooks
My mom was a professional. My dad and mom met each other in a movie called 'New Faces of 1937.' My mom went under the name Thelma Leeds, and she did a few movies, and she was really a great singer, and when she married my dad and started to have a family, she sang at parties.
Albert Finney
My dad was great. He was very droll, very dry.
Aldous Huxley
Sons have always a rebellious wish to be disillusioned by that which charmed their fathers.
Alex Pettyfer
My dad's one of my biggest heroes. I also think Paul Newman's an inspiration. I know a lot of people say that, but I love that he's a great role model and a humanitarian. I admire people who don't necessarily want to change the world, but try to make it a better environment.
Alison Lohman
My dad's an architect and my mom owned a French bakery for twelve years.
Allison Williams
My dad keeps joking about sneaking into my grandparents' house and switching out their HBO for PBS so they think I'm on 'Downton Abbey.'
Alvin Lee
I started off playing the clarinet, after I was inspired by listening to my dad's Benny Goodman records.
Amanda Seyfried
My dad, he is such a soft man. Even if he has these opinions about my boyfriends, he will be the sweetest guy. He will make you feel like you're fascinating and awesome, even if he doesn't like you that much.
Amber Heard
I grew up in Texas, and people love their American-made muscle cars there. I grew up around people who loved cars and took care of cars and my dad's a big car nut, so I learned a little bit about cars - how to love them, most importantly. I think that from the time I could remember, I've always envisioned myself in a vintage muscle car.
Amit Kalantri
Father has a strengthening character like the sun and mother has a soothing temper like the moon.
Amit Kalantri
Parents expect only two things from their children, obedience in their childhood and respect in their adulthood.
Amy Grant
Come Christmas Eve, we usually go to my mom and dad's. Everybody brings one gift and then we play that game when we all steal it from each other. Some are really cool, others are useful and some are a bit out there.
Amy Heckerling
Babies don't need fathers, but mothers do. Someone who is taking care of a baby needs to be taken care of.
Amy Klobuchar
My dad was a sports writer when I was younger and then he became just a general columnist. But I grew up with him literally getting into brawls with football coaches.
Amy Sedaris
David and Dad didn't get along too well growing up. I mean we all got along, but it was harder on David, because David wasn't going to be the son that Dad wanted. But now they're like best friends.
Amy Sedaris
My father and I have a very good relationship. We always got along. But I always scold him.
Anais Nin
I stopped loving my father a long time ago. What remained was the slavery to a pattern.
Andre Agassi
You know my dad pushed me to believe that I was going to be the best. I just never thought of life without tennis, even looking forward.
Andre Dubus III
One of the accidental joys of my writing life has been that I've had some lovely, surprisingly good fortune with readers, and I've brought readers to my dad's work. I can't tell you the joy that gives me. Because my father's work was masterful.
Andre Dubus III
My dad and mom divorced when I was around ten, and I didn't live with him after that, though he was close by and we saw each other weekly. I wasn't really aware that he was a writer I didn't start reading his writing until I was about fifteen. It occurred to me then that my dad was kind of special he's still one of my favorite writers.
Andy Serkis
My dad was working abroad, in Iraq, and he was a doctor. We used to go and visit him, in Baghdad, off and on. For the first ten years of my life, we used to go backwards and forwards to Baghdad, so that was quite amazing. I spent a lot of time traveling around the Middle East.
Andy Serkis
I stayed in Baghdad every summer until I was 14. My dad's sister is still there, but many of my relatives have managed to get out. People forget that there are still people there who are not radicalized in any particular direction, trying to live normal lives in a very difficult situation.
Ang Lee
I'm just a pretty regular dad.
Angela Carter
Aeneas carried his aged father on his back from the ruins of Troy and so do we all, whether we like it or not, perhaps even if we have never known them.
Angelina Jolie
I've told Billy if I ever caught him cheating, I wouldn't kill him because I love his children and they need a dad. But I would beat him up. I know where all of his sports injuries are.
Angelina Jolie
And my dad, you're a great actor but you're a better father.
Ann Richards
I have always had the feeling I could do anything and my dad told me I could. I was in college before I found out he might be wrong.
Ann Romney
I am the granddaughter of a Welsh coal miner who was determined that his kids get out of the mines. My dad got his first job when he was six years old, in a little village in Wales called Nantyffyllon, cleaning bottles at the Colliers Arms.
Anna Lee
My father was an Episcopalian minister, and I've always been comforted by the power of prayer.
Anne M. Mulcahy
My dad was an editor and a writer, and that's actually what I aspired to be.
Annette Funicello
I have always thought of Walt Disney as my second father.
Anthony Ryan
I've survived revolution, war, and over a decade on this continent, the Burgrave reflected. But by all the ghosts of the hundred emperors, I think fatherhood will finally do me in.
Anthony Ryan
Nobility is a lie. A pretence that high standing comes from anything more than money or martial prowess. Any dolt can play the noble, and as you'll discover in time, daughter, it's mostly dolts who do.
Anthony Doerr
I always told my dad I'd play professional football.
Anthony Hopkins
My father was grounded, a very meat-and-potatoes man. He was a baker.
Anthony Kiedis
As a father now, I wouldn't do what my dad did, because it left me feeling emotionally unstable as a kid. But he didn't do the things he did out of selfishness or malice.
Anthony Kiedis
I know my dad is a big Internet freak, and he's been known to be a Wikileaker.
Anthony Kiedis
I would have to say the person with whom I am most in love is definitely my son, Everly Bear. Although I'm his dad, I'm also his friend.
Anthony Quinn
Thirteen, 13 children, and I love - I love them all. And I think I've been a good father to all of them.
Arabella Weir
My dad was a diplomat and after living in America, where I was born, he was posted to Cairo.
Aravind Adiga
Indians mock their corrupt politicians relentlessly, but they regard their honest politicians with silent suspicion. The first thing they do when they hear of a supposedly 'clean' politician is to grin. It is a cliche that honest politicians in India tend to have dishonest sons, who collect money from people seeking an audience with Dad.
Arne Duncan
There was nothing more important I could do than be supportive as a dad.
Ashlee Simpson
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.
Ashley Greene
I'm lucky because my dad taught me to be frugal and save. And that's important because I want to know that I don't have to take an acting job for two or three years if I don't want to and that I'll still be able to make my house and car payments and buy food for my dogs.
Ashley Scott
We had our first earthquake over here recently. That was a bizarre feeling. I just became disoriented and I remember my dad freaking out. Nothing broke or anything.
Ashley Tisdale
My family belongs to a tennis club in Valencia, California, so I always go there. I play a lot of tennis with my dad and swim. And I like to go to the gym there.
Ashley Tisdale
My sister is totally my dad's daughter because she loves sports.
Atom Egoyan
That is where the irony of the film comes off, in terms of the language it employs - where he tries desperately to be a 'TV Dad,' to give advice and it's so pat it becomes ridiculous.
August Strindberg
That is the thankless position of the father in the family - the provider for all, and the enemy of all.
Bam Margera
I'm Bam Margera. And I feel like kicking my dad's butt all day today.
Barbara Castle
He described how, as a boy of 14, his dad had been down the mining pit, his uncle had been down the pit, his brother had been down the pit, and of course he would go down the pit.
Barry White
I kept my babies fed. I could have dumped them, but I didn't. I decided that whatever trip I was on, they were going with me. You're looking at a real daddy.
Bear Grylls
I loved climbing because of the freedom, and having time and space. I remember coming off Everest for the last time, thinking of Dad and wishing that he could have seen what I saw. He would have loved it.
Beau Bridges
My father was my teacher. But most importantly he was a great dad.
Beau Bridges
We all feel really blessed to have been with my dad for these 85 years.
Ben Affleck
My mother taught public school, went to Harvard and then got her master's there and taught fifth and sixth grade in a public school. My dad had a more working-class lifestyle. He didn't go to college. He was an auto mechanic and a bartender and a janitor at Harvard.
Ben Barnes
I often talk with other actors about that time when you've just finished a job, because I think you do take on the characteristics of some of the characters you play. Sometimes it can be a great thing and sometimes it's a bit haunting because you're not quite sure how to leave it on set. My dad talks about it as being 'de-personalised.'
Ben Barnes
My mum was raised Jewish, my dad is very scientifically minded, and my school was vaguely Christian. We sang hymns in school. I liked the hymns bit, but apart from that, I can take it or leave it. So I had lots of different influences when I was younger.
Ben Barnes
My dad is a doctor, a professor of psychiatry, and my mum is a psychotherapist.
Ben E. King
He was a manager, one of the singers, I guess talent coordinator for the local talent in Harlem. His name was Lover Patterson. He was living right across the street from where my dad had his restaurant. I guess he saw a lot of kids come in, a lot of my buddies.
Benedict Cumberbatch
My mum and dad had worked incredibly hard to afford me an education.
Benedict Cumberbatch
My mum and dad had worked incredibly hard to afford me an education.
Benicio Del Toro
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.
Benjamin Walker
My dad is kind of a rascal, like in a Dickensian sense. He just goes from career to career.
Bertrand Russell
The fundamental defect of fathers, in our competitive society, is that they want their children to be a credit to them.
Bertrand Russell
The place of the father in the modern suburban family is a very small one, particularly if he plays golf.
Beth Ditto
My dad liked to boil a squirrel head and suck the brains out the nose. Smaller than a chicken, bigger than a rat.
Beth Ditto
My mother told me Homer Ditto was not my father. Nope. Mom had had a fling with some other guy who was my dad. Some dude who didn't stick around too long who Mom was happy to get rid of. She chose Homer, and Homer chose me, so he lent me his name even though I didn't have his blood.
Betty White
During the Depression, my dad made radios to sell to make extra money. Nobody had any money to buy the radios, so he would trade them for dogs. He built kennels in the backyard, and he cared for the dogs.
Betty White
My mother and dad were big animal lovers, too. I just don't know how I would have lived without animals around me. I'm fascinated by them - both domestic pets and the wild community. They just are the most interesting things in the world to me, and it's made such a difference in my lifetime.
Bill Gates
Me and my dad are the biggest promoters of an estate tax in the US. It's not a popular position.
Bill Keller
My dad was an engineer, and he became the CEO of Chevron. His was an engineer's mind-set: Everything's kind of a problem how do you approach the problem?
Bill Kreutzmann
My dad loved black singers. So listening to New Orleans music, eventually I wanted to play an instrument.
Bill Nighy
My dad had a personal style which was very attractive. It was quite reserved and quite elegant, and it was infectious.
Bill Pullman
I also turn down what's probably a good amount of coinage to be made out of playing dads, an incredible number of obnoxious dad.
Billie Joe Armstrong
I'm a father. It isn't just my life any more. I don't want my kid finding bottles in the house or seeing his father completely smashed.
Billy Sherwood
So I was always around music and my dad was in his own way a progressive jazzer, a big band jazzer guy.
Bob Balaban
My dad was the baby. When he was born they were already successful. They sent him to business school - he probably would have loved to have been a poet or a writer or something, and he was very creative.
Bob Balaban
My dad was born in Chicago in 1908... his parents came from Russia. They settled in Chicago, where they lived in a little tiny grocery store with eight or nine children - in the backroom all together - and my grandmother got the idea to go into the movie business.
Bobby Hull
Somewhere in my wildest childhood I must have done something right. Being able to make a boyhood dream come true is one thing, but to have a kid come along and thrill his dad like Brett Hull has thrilled me over his career is too much for one guy to handle.
Bobby Orr
My Dad was my biggest supporter. He never put pressure on me.
Bono
Overcoming my dad telling me that I could never amount to anything is what has made me the megalomaniac that you see today.
Boomer Esiason
My goal is for Gunnar to outlive me. That's the way it should be. My dream is for him to be a dad himself one day, so he can find out all the anxiety that kids bring to their dads.
Brad Pitt
My father came from a very poor background, but I was very fortunate in the sense that we were never in need. My dad was determined to make sure that we didn't want for things. He wanted to give us more opportunity than he had, a better shot at a better life.
Brandon Lee
A large part of my life revolves around my dad. Sometimes, I even feel a strong sense of connection, something very tangible when I learn something new in the martial arts.
Branford Marsalis
My dad was a musician, it was just what he did, like another guy's dad drives a meat truck. Our house was normal. We weren't taken with the fact our dad was a musician.
Brendan Coyle
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.
Brendan Fehr
When you get pure joy out of 'being' rather than 'doing' or 'seeing,' that's when you realize how big and unexplainable some things are and being a dad is one of those very few things.
Brian Austin Green
My mother's incredibly giving, almost too giving at times. And, my dad is a real logical person. He's got logic for every situation. They've been married for 24 years, so there was that stability, also. I really learned to think on my own at a very young age.
Brian Sandoval
Dad worked his entire career as an aviation technician. Mom was a legal secretary who became a teacher. We lived a simple American life.
Brion James
My dad had a movie theater so I was there every night.
Broderick Crawford
My father was always telling himself no one was perfect, not even my mother.
Bruno Tonioli
Dad was a bus driver, and when he finished work he would repair cars.
Bruno Tonioli
When it came to the stylish and graceful art of ballroom dancing, my dad was a king of the clubs, a prowling tiger and a wonderfully natural mover.
Bubba Watson
My dad taught me to be a leader or a follower, and he said follower ain't fun. So I want to be the leader of Bubba Watson.
Bubba Watson
My dad's not here, but he's watching in heaven.
Buffalo Bill
But the love of adventure was in father's blood.
Cameron Diaz
My dad always used to tell me that if they challenge you to an after-school fight, tell them you won't wait-you can kick their ass right now.
Cameron Diaz
I have to remind my dad, 'Journalists - no matter how many cigars they smoke with you - are not your friends, so don't talk to them.'
Camryn Manheim
One of my earliest memories is of my father carrying me in one arm with a picket sign in the other.
Candace Cameron Bure
My mom and dad - they were always there. They were always on the set. They focused on our family life. The entertainment business wasn't the end-all. They weren't out to get the next big paycheck or the next big movie. It was about 'What can we do as a family.'
Candace Parker
On my best days, such as when I was a junior in high school coming off a 42-point performance and near triple-double, my dad was there to tell me I haven't arrived yet and bring me back to reality.
Candace Parker
My dad was my first coach and drove me extremely hard from a very young age.
Candace Parker
From my first dunk at 14 years old to my second NCAA Championship at the University of Tennessee, my intense training with my dad was always to credit.
Carlos Santana
My dad's a beautiful man, but like a lot of Mexican men, or men in general, a lot of men have a problem with the balance of masculinity and femininity - intuition and compassion and tenderness - and get overboard with the macho thing. It took him a while to become more, I would say, conscious, evolved.
Caroline Wozniacki
One day my dad would say, 'OK, if you want to play tennis I can help you out.' And that's how it started. And I had a goal. I wanted to beat my mom first. And my parents and my brother. And that was the ultimate goal.
Caroline Wozniacki
My dad has always been my coach. And I've spent so much time with him. So he's one of my best friends. And I can talk to him about everything.
Carre Otis
I was born in 1968, just eighteen months after my sister Chrisse and just one year after Dad passed the bar exam.
Cat Cora
My humanitarian work evolved from being with my family. My mom, my dad, they really set a great example for giving back. My mom was a nurse, my dad was a school teacher. But my mom did a lot of things for geriatrics and elderly people. She would do home visits for free.
Cat Deeley
The only time I ever look good dancing is if I'm next to my dad at a wedding.
Chad Smith
I'm being a dad and a good husband.
Channing Tatum
If my Dad doesn't like you, you will know. My Mom is just too innocent to ever lie. She doesn't even cuss.
Charisma Carpenter
I had my heart set on becoming an English teacher, but stumbled into acting after meeting a theatrical agent in my dad's restaurant in San Diego.
Charles Schumer
Barack Obama knows that to create an economy built to last, we need to focus on middle-class families. Families who stay up on Sunday nights pacing the floor, like my dad did, while their children, tucked in bed, dream big dreams. Families who aren't sure what Monday morning will bring, but who believe our nation's best days are still ahead.
Charley Pride
I grew up not liking my father very much. I never saw him cry. But he must have. Everybody cries.
Charlie Sheen
Dad almost died of a heart attack in the middle of making Apocalypse Now, the biggest movie of his life. It doesn't make you want to jump into that business.
Charlie Sheen
Dad kept us out of school, but school comes and goes. Family is forever.
Charlie Sheen
What is a normal childhood? We weren't rich, we were pretty middle-class. My dad survived from job to job with him taking care of so many relatives, he couldn't save any money.
Chaske Spencer
I remember my dad, who coached football, would buy some of his players football shoes when they couldn't afford it.
Chely Wright
I recruited my dad to be my bass player and fired him on several occasions. He stayed on as a bus driver.
Cheryl Cole
I love Prince Harry. Good looking and a bit of a rebel. Me and his dad are as thick as thieves and I knew Harry before I knew his dad so we've met a few times. I think he's amazing. And I think you can relate to him because he's made mistakes. He's cool.
Chief Joseph
My father... had sharper eyes than the rest of our people.
Chief Joseph
I pressed my father's hand and told him I would protect his grave with my life. My father smiled and passed away to the spirit land.
Chris Hemsworth
My dad works in child protection and he's spent many, many years in that line of work.
Chris Isaak
My mom and dad played this music all the time when I was growing up, so to me songs by Jerry Lee and Fats Domino are the classics, they're the best songs ever.
Chris Isaak
I think I had kind of an advantage. When I was growing up, my dad had just got out of jail and he had a great record collection. He had - it was all - these were the songs. So I heard a lot of these songs, like, my whole life, so for me it was easy. I already knew what I was going to sing.
Chris O'Donnell
I think it's easiest to teach by example. My dad didn't tell us to work hard we just saw how hard he worked. I know I have shortcomings - like a short fuse - but I've learned you can't come home from a long day of work and snap at the kids.
Chris O'Donnell
I am an obsessive garage cleaner - my wife and the neighbors make fun of me. I remember that my father was the same way, and now when I'm out there unearthing things in the garage, I realize I am becoming my dad!
Chris Pine
My grandmother was an actress too. In the thirties and forties she was under contract with Universal Studios. Crazy credits, lots of them. My dad was also under contract with Universal Studios. And my first film was shot on the same stage they both worked on at Universal.
Chris Robinson
Life is different than it was in the Nineties. I'm a dad, and there are other things I have to get done in an afternoon than just being an artist.
Chris Robinson
If you had told me at 45 years old that I would have to go on tour to get rest, I would've said, 'That's not how it works.' But nothing can be more gratifying. I'm a very hands-on dad.
Christian Bale
I met my grandfather just before he died, and it was the first time that I had seen Dad with a relative of his. It was interesting to see my own father as a son and the body language and alteration in attitude that comes with that, and it sort of changed our relationship for the better.
Christian Bale
My dad was the biggest influence on my life because he was never boring.
Christian Bale
Look, I've got incredible pride for my family. I've absolutely fallen into that cliche of a dad who could just happily talk about my daughter endlessly.
Christie Hefner
No, I never thought about my father's money as my money.
Christina Hendricks
I'm an ambassador for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and one of the children, his wish was to go to the Emmys, so he's going to be my date, along with my husband, and my dad and his girlfriend. So we're going to have a really fun night and it's going to be really exciting. I'm really excited for him to experience that.
Christine Keeler
As a little girl I used to daydream about my real father coming on a white horse to rescue me.
Christopher Eccleston
I know exactly where I've come from, I know exactly who my mum and dad are.
Christopher Eccleston
Often as a child you see someone with a learning disability or Down's Syndrome and my mum and dad were always very quick to explain exactly what was going on and to be in their own way inclusive and welcoming.
Christopher Meloni
The surprising thing about fatherhood was finding my inner mush. Now I want to share it with the world.
Christopher Meloni
My mother raised three children on her own and my dad was a doctor working 16 hours a day.
Christopher Walken
Also for me it was different because I play a lot of villains and in this one I play a dad and I play a good guy, basically. He's the Secretary of the Treasury. I never had a job like that.
Cindy Crawford
Watching your husband become a father is really sexy and wonderful.
Claude Nicollier
I would say the most help I got was from my dad. My dad is a civil engineer in Switzerland he's 90 years old now, so he's no longer active as a civil engineer, but still a very active person.
Clive Owen
I go off and make movies I come home, and I'm a dad and I hang with my girls.
Colin Hanks
Keep in my mind my dad didn't become a huge, huge mega actor until I was halfway through high school - so right around the time he's going through his big renaissance is right when I'm starting to do my high school revolting.
Colin Hanks
My dad has always been extremely supportive in every decision I've made and much more interested in me picking what I wanted to do.
Colin Hanks
I knew that I needed to do something that I desperately loved. There was a period where I did question if it was acting because I knew that I would be making things hard on myself. I knew that there was going to be a little bit of a hullabaloo because of my dad being who he is and all that.
Colin Hanks
When I was younger it was - you know, my dad dressed up in drag on 'Bosom Buddies.' And that was what I was having to deal with at the time. And then around the time that I was into college was when he became statue-worthy I guess you could say.
Connie Britton
For my birthday this year, my girlfriends - who knew I'd just inherited my dad's turntable - gave me a carton of albums like 'Blue Kentucky Girl,' by Emmylou Harris, and 'Off the Wall,' by Michael Jackson. It's all stuff we grew up with. I mean, you can't have a music collection without Prince's 'Purple Rain' - it just can't be done!
Conrad Hall
Dad, wherever you are, you are gone but you will never be forgotten.
Corey Hart
Truthfully, I'm still Corey Hart, Dad, first.
Corey Hart
I needed to step away from music because the truth was I couldn't be the dad I wanted to be to my kids. My truth was that I could not reconcile the two worlds - the entertainment world and being the dad I wanted to be in the present. You can't substitute time, you just can't.
Courteney Cox
You know, my mother's beautiful, my dad was a really handsome man, and there was a lot of talk about looks when I was growing up.
Courteney Cox
At one point my dad called me and said, 'You have always been a great salesman. I think it's time you come home and sell swimming pools.'
Courtney Love
I like all the angels around because they protect me and my daughter. I mean, her Dad's an angel.
Craig D. Lounsbrough
A father teaches his children that the battle is not determined by the enemy that stands around them, but by the God Who stands within them. And that lesson can only be driven home as they watch their father stand around them, while God stands within their father.
Craig D. Lounsbrough
The father who has selflessly poured himself into the life of his children may leave no other monument than that of his children. But as for a life well lived, no other monument is necessary.
Craig D. Lounsbrough
To lead solely on the behalf of those being led is the utter pinnacle of fatherhood, and it is sad that so few ever stand on the summit.
Craig Davidson
When you're a kid all you know is that your dad puts on his suit or overalls and vanishes from your life until nightfall. Sometimes my pops came back exhausted and scarlet-eyed, as if he'd been engaged in a low wattage war someplace.
Criss Angel
I had an amazing childhood, lots of love. But my dad worked his tail off, getting up at 4 in the morning and going off at 5, 6 o'clock, yet he always had time to spend with his kids and his wife.
Criss Angel
When my father died in my arms it had such a profound affect on me that at that very moment when my dad passed I realized that I needed to face my own fears.
Curtis Joseph
I love my hockey, but if you can do that and go home and just be a dad and husband, then you have the best of both worlds.
Curtis Stone
I had the opportunity to go to law school, and my dad, who was an accountant, couldn't believe I wanted to walk away from that and start cooking.
Curtis Stone
Now that I'm a dad, I'm practicing what I call 'one- handed cooking,' because I've got something more important in my other arm. I'm whipping up lots of frittatas and omelets.
Cynthia Nixon
In a school where everyone is famous or rich or whatever, you have a culture, 'What does your dad do?' 'What does your mom do?'
Daisy Donovan
My dad always said, 'Don't worry what people think, because you can't change it.'
Dakota Fanning
My dad named me Dakota and my mom came up with my first name Hannah. So it's Hannah Dakota Fanning.
Damian Lewis
I'm not an American, but I have this weird connection to America in different ways through my dad living here for five years, my godfather being an American who I'm very close to.
Damon Wayans
My father was the guy on the block who said hi to everyone.
Dan Auerbach
Everybody always wants to rebel against their parents' music, but nobody listened to music louder than my dad.
Dan Auerbach
I used to be really nervous when I sang. Like, when I was a kid starting young, 18 and 19, and my dad really had to sort of push me to start singing in front of people. Ever since I got out there and really started doing it, the only thing I've ever tried to do is just sort of is be myself, you know, never put on a voice. Sing naturally.
Dan Fogelberg
My dad was vehemently opposed to electric guitars. He did not look on that kind of music as legitimate in any way.
Dan Savage
My dad was a homicide cop in the gay neighborhood in the city when gay neighborhoods were desperate, depressing, sad places run by the mob. The only gay people he'd met when I came out to him were corpses.
Dan Stevens
My dad's family were pretty working class, actually.

My dad tells me that he took us to a pantomime when I was very, very small - panto being a sort of English phenomenon. There's traditionally a part of the show where they'll invite kids up on the stage to interact with the show. I was too young to remember this, but my dad says that I was running up onstage before they even asked us.
Dan Stevens
I've never tried to find my real parents. I'm very grateful to my mum and dad for adopting me - they're completely incredible people. It was my dad who encouraged me to question everything, to forge my own path, to think, to read. I always felt it was my right to question everything.
Dan Wheldon
The last thing I want my child to see is Dad running around in the middle of the pack. That would really upset me. And that would upset him. I would be embarrassed to take him to school with kids saying, 'Hey, how'd your dad do this weekend?' 'Well, he finished fifth or sixth'.
Danica McKellar
When I was little, we had a Golden Book that had all these Disney characters in one portrait on the first page. My dad used to read from it every night. We'd play this game of find Pluto or find Donald Duck. He'd read us stories and do all the voices. Those are great memories.
Daniel Baldwin
My little son, Atticus, desperately needs his dad and I haven't been there for him... and that's sad.
Daniel Radcliffe
I'm not a religious person. My mom was of Jewish blood and my dad was Protestant.
Daniel Radcliffe
My dad believes in God, I think. I'm not sure if my mom does. I don't.
Daniel Radcliffe
I was in the bath at the time, and my dad came running in and said, 'Guess who they want to play Harry Potter!?' and I started to cry. It was probably the best moment of my life.
Daniel Radcliffe
My dad's got a brilliant eye for scripts 'cos he's a literary agent. He and my agent read a load of scripts and filter them.
Danny Bonaduce
As it has been told to me, my Dad had some kind of deal with Dick Clark. But when we got here, that fell through. So we were out here with no job, no furniture, no food.
Danny Boyle
My dad was a labourer and my mum had exactly the same job as Noel Gallagher's mum - she was a dinner lady at our local school. Everyone comes over from Ireland and they get the same jobs.
