I never tried to emulate my father. Anyone trying to do that would be a second-rate carbon copy.
It’s my father’s legacy. My father’s view was that the public is the employer of these government employees and has the right to know what they’re up to.
The church is not a brick-and-mortar structure. The church is made of flesh & blood. Followers of #Christ are the church.
If you don’t like your sister or don’t get along with your father, let’s find out if you like yourself. Let’s not sugarcoat anything about it.

I have the solution to all my problems. I have money, position, the running of one of the country’s legendary cattle stations. I can even get the girl I want. I can’t buy her, of...
I’m not a guy who curses very much in my personal life. When I curse it sounds like a kid trying to be cool. But I think there are quite a few people, my father...

My father is Chinese, Spanish, and Filipino; my mother is half-Irish and half-Japanese; Greek last name; born in Hawaii, raised in Germany.

I was three. My father in jest said that he’d tell the doctor to give me a shot if I didn’t behave. Good heavens, I have a mental picture of the living room and the...
He was like my father. They each wanted me to be their audience, to hear the things they needed to express.
In terms of style I typically veer toward a certain masculinity. My style inspirations range from images of my father in his 1970s suits, to Tilda Swinton, to Hugh Hefner, to Sharon Stone and her...
An important impression was my father’s one Sabbatical year, spent in England and Europe in 1937.

My father’s an early aviator, and my first flight was with him at age two. Now, despite the fact that I got sick on the flight, I still enjoyed it, I believe.
Don’t let hard lessons harden your heart.
I remember when I was very young, I had a fever – a long rheumatic fever in bed for four months. And in the days, I stayed alone with the maid. I only had my...
I came from a mother and father who always made me secure in my beliefs, and that’s where the love came from.
Can you become a man without becoming your father?
My dad had limitations. That’s what my good-hearted mom always told us. He had limitations, but he meant no harm. It was kind of her to say, but he did do harm.
It’s a source of great sadness to me that my father died without having seen me do anything worthwhile. He was constantly having to make excuses for me.
The sudden loss of her father was like living with a wound that would never heal, yet her memories of him were fading more and more every day.
Father Sams, a mirthful shaman, looked at a nighted photograph of actress Lar Park Lincoln beneath his glass of bourbon con hielo.
My dad taught me everything I know about being a man, and most of what I know about being a woman. The rest I had to learn from textbooks.

My father is a man of impeccable character who has worked tirelessly for the United Nations for many years. His integrity is beyond reproach.
My dad is a loving person. He would never disown me. At some point we will be together again. I love my father, and he loves me.

Fear not, brothers and sisters, God, who is full of grace and abounding in steadfast love, meets us in our sin and transforms us for God’s glory and the healing of God’s world. In the...
My father taught me that the easiest thing to do was to quit. He’d say, ‘It doesn’t take any talent to do that.’
He wipes tears off my face and then snot. He uses his hands. He loves me that much.
But he leaves it up to his children to accept his will. It is their agency. He cannot force his will upon them. If he did, he would cease to be God. They . ....
