“I believe that what we become depends on what our fathers teach us at odd moments, when they aren’t trying to teach us. We are formed by little scraps of wisdom.” – Umberto Eco Foucault’s Pendulum

“Daddy had only just got into bed when, from the next room, a small voice called, “Hello?”

“What do you want?” Daddy demanded, perhaps a trifle less patiently than usual.

There came a long silence. Then from a sleepy child came the reply, “I don’t want anything ‘cept I just want to know somebody is there.”

That is the cry of million of hearts, millions who feel they can manage along through life as long as there is someone to share it with.” – Francis Gay

“Whatever’s wrong, you know if it’s worth fixing or not. If it is, then fix it. If not, leave it alone and move on. If I raised you to be strong, then that means I didn’t teach you to sit around and wait on life and happiness to happen to you. You go after it, Macy.
And if something is standing in your way, you go through it.” – Cherrie Lynn

“He treats the person as if they were fully whole.
We become what others expect us to be. Dad expected me to get better and even assumed I would have something helpful to say. Funny how we rise and fall to the assumptions of others.” – Nathan Foster
