I do not hate my father. I hate the person you became.
I'm so ugly - My father carries around a picture of the kid who came with his wallet.
My name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die.
My name is Norval; on the Grampian hills / My father feeds his flocks; a frugal swain, / Whose constant cares were to increase his store.
In his life, as in his death, my father was determined to show the world things that some were afraid to see and others wished they could ignore.
I wish I had my father to hug yet.
My mother was born in Lima, Peru, and my father is American of primarily German and English descent. And as I understand it, Bratt is of English origin. People often ask me if it's a stage name. In fact, it is not.
This is my dad. I'm an only child. My whole life is my father.
It's amicable, believe me. My father supports both of us. Our family's been through a lot. We've been through our ups and downs in the boxing business. It just came to the time where we thought it would be best to go our own separate ways. We wish each other the best, and we'll probably do some business together when the circumstance presents itself.
My father, Ricardo, has been my biggest role model on and off the bike. He was a pretty good rider himself when he was younger. He got me into the sport and I really looked up to him. My older brother, Rich, was a role model in the beginning as well. We are very close as a family and we rode together all the time. My father taught us what was right and wrong. He taught us to work hard and strive to achieve our goals. He was very inspiring for me. My father really taught me that if I work hard enough, I can achieve anything. I think that is important at any age.
My father gave me these hints on speech-making: "Be sincere... be brief... be seated.".
After the awards, I didn't win, my father called me up and told me that the man from Johnstown had put all kinds of signs in the theatre saying, 'This year's Academy Award winner... ' because my father had said I was going to win. And I didn't. But this guy asked if it would be alright if he took the Oscar and put it in the lobby and put a sign saying, 'This is what it would look like if he had won'.
My mother approved, my father just didn't accept the idea of my being an actor. I think that's the reason he kept the hardware store in operation, because I think he was pretty sure that I was going to be found out sooner or later, and he wanted to have a job for me to come back to.
Even though my father never made millions of dollars, he was rich in so many ways. He seemed so content with his life ... fulfilled in every way ... that he exuded this every day. Even at the simplest of gatherings, his joy and genuine happiness made me want to be around him.
My father had a pat answer: I'm extremely proud of all my three children.
I think I was just trying to find my father, ... I hadn't been able to ask him these questions.
When I was young I had all the advantages. My father worked for Howard Hughes, we lived in Bel Air. I went to the best schools, and got the best girls. My intelligence quotient was well above average; and yet I could be a rebellious, troublesome punk who brought more than a little anxiety to my parents.
My father passed away, and that was hard. But we were about to have to move out of our apartment and into a van, and we were able to move into his house. God is definitely watching over us. He sends us angels.
You just ignore it. You know you're qualified. I know my father in my situation ... he's not going to hand me a job just because of who I am.
I can identify with the character really well. The girl loses her father, and I didn't literally lose my father, but figuratively I did.
My father worked for GE for 40 years.
My father always told me, "Find a job you love and you'll never have to work a day in your life.
My father was very proud of the fact he could put my brother through school. He worked very hard as a blue-collar man to raise a doctor, and he's very proud of that.
My father would say being a White Sox fan was on your birth certificate.
Both my father and grandfather were entrepreneurs, in Cleveland. I was exposed to startups and buyouts and management from a young age. In fact, when I graduated, I had offers at Microsoft, Sun, IBM -- but my heart was in Vicious Systems.
