Having children is like living in a frat house. Nobody sleeps, everything’s broken and there’s a lot of throwing up



It's the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. You realize what's important in life.



I feel like the success of parenthood is feeling like I failed all day today, but I get to wake up tomorrow and do it again and hopefully they turn out to be a good human being



“It’s legitimately the greatest thing ever…It just makes me want to be better.



Fatherhood is the best thing I ever did. It changes your perspective.



My father used to say that it's never too late to do anything you wanted to do. And he said, 'You never know what you can accomplish until you try.'



She did not stand alone, but what stood behind her, the most potent moral force in her life, was the love of her father.



When you're young, you think your dad is Superman. Then you grow up, and you realize he's just a regular guy who wears a cape.
