11 Father Quotes from Literature

"Your father, Jo. He never loses patience, never doubts or complains, but always hopes, and works and waits so cheerfully that one is ashamed to do otherwise before him." ~ Little Women by Louisa May Alcott There is probably no more terrible instance of enlightenment than the one in which you discover your father is a man – with human flesh. ~ Dune by Frank Herbert "There is many a young cockerel that will stand upon a dunghill and crow about his father, by way of making his own plumage to shine." ~ Cousin Phillis by Elizabeth Gaskell "Mr. Bazzard's father, being a Norfolk farmer, would have furiously laid about him with a flail, a pitch-fork, and every agricultural implement available for assaulting purposes, on the slightest hint of his son's having written a play." ~ The Mystery of Edwin Drood by Charles Dickens She was trusted and valued by her father, loved and courted by all dogs, cats, children, and poor people, and slighted and neglected by everybody else. ~ The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte Her look at her father, half admiring him and proud of him, half ashamed for him, all devoted and loving, went to his inmost heart. ~ Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens "O Mr. Rokesmith, before you go, if you could but make me poor again! O! Make me poor again, Somebody, I beg and pray, or my heart will break if this goes on! Pa, dear, make me poor again and take me home! I was bad enough there, but I have been so much worse here. Don't give me money, Mr. Boffin, I won't have money. Keep it away from me, and only let me speak to good little Pa, and lay my head upon his shoulder, and tell him all my griefs. Nobody else can understand me, nobody else can comfort me, nobody else knows how unworthy I am, and yet can love me like a little child. I am better with Pa than any one--more innocent, more sorry, more glad!" ~ Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens "Ecod, you may say what you like of my father, then, and so I give you leave," said Jonas. "I think it's liquid aggravation that circulates through his veins, and not regular blood." ~ Martin Chuzzlewit by Charles Dickens "Our father would never tell us what it was he feared, but he had a most marked aversion to men with wooden legs." ~ The Sign of The Four by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Some eighty thousand years are supposed to have existed between paleolithic and neolithic man. Yet in all that time he only learned to grind his flint stones instead of chipping them. But within our father's lives what changes have there not been? The railway and the telegraph, chloroform and applied electricity. Ten years now go further than a thousand then, not so much on account of our finer intellects as because the light we have shows us the way to more. Primeval man stumbled along with peering eyes, and slow, uncertain footsteps. Now we walk briskly towards our unknown goal. ~ The Stark Munro Letters by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
