Quotes about Parents


Quote by Oscar Wilde in Das Bildnis des Dorian Gray (Book quote)

Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.

Quote by Roald Dahl in Matilda (Book quote)

It's a funny thing about mothers and fathers. Even when their own child is the most disgusting little blister you could ever imagine, they still think that he or she is wonderful.

Quote by Henry Rollins

If you hate your parents, the man, or the establishment, don't show them up by getting wasted and wrapping your car around a tree. If you really hate your parents, out earn them, out live them and know more than they do.

Quote by William Paul Young in The Shack (Book quote)

Let me say for now that we knew once the Creation was broken, true fathering would be much more lacking than mothering. Don't misunderstand me, both are needed- but an emphasis on fathering is necessary because of the enormity of its absence.

Quote by Johnny Depp

Anything I've done up till May 27th 1999 was kind of an illusion, existing without living. My daughter, the birth of my daughter, gave me life.

Quote by Michael Jordan

My heroes are and were my parents. I can't see having anyone else as my heroes.

Quote by Hank Moody from Californication in Season 4 Episode 2 (Series quote)

To my dear beautiful daughter,

I'm writing you a letter. That's right, a good old-fashioned letter. It's a lost art, really. I have a confession to make. I didn't like you very much at first. You were just this annoying, little blob. You smelled nice. Most of the time. But you didn't seem to have much interest in me. Which I, of course, found vaguely insulting.

It was just you and your mom against the world... funny how some things never change. So I cruised along, doing my thing, acting the fool, not really understanding how being a parent changes you. And I don't remember the exact moment everything changed. I just know that it did.

One minute I was impenetrable. Nothing could touch me. The next, my heart was somehow beating outside my chest, exposed to the elements. Loving you has been the most profound, intense, painful experience of my life. In fact, it's been almost too much to bear. As your father, I made a silent vow to protect you from the world, never realizing I was the one who would end up hurting you the most.

When I flash forward, my heart breaks. Mostly because I can't imagine you speaking of me with any sort of pride. How could you? Your father is a child in a man's body. He cares for nothing and everything at the same time. Noble in thought, weak in action. Something has to change. Something has to give. It's getting dark... too dark to see.
