A Quote by Boyd K. Packer on ancestry, birth, children, fatherhood, generations, god, heaven, mind, mortality, nobility, people, spirit, and truth

You are a child of God. He is father of your spirit. Spiritually you are of noble birth, the offspring of the King of Heaven. Fix that truth in your mind and hold to it. However many generations in your mortal ancestry, no matter what race or people you represent, the pedigree of your spirit can be written on a single line. You are a child of God!

A Quote by Boyd K. Packer on children, fatherhood, god, and relatives

Get to Know Yourself Once you start getting acquainted with yourselves, finding out who you are and where you belong and who your relatives are, spiritually speaking as well as in the earthly frame of reference, you come to the astounding, overwhelming realization that you are a child of God-that you belong to Him, that He is your Father. He is our Father.

A Quote by Robert ‘Bob' Dole on america, beginning, compassion, country, death, doubt, family, fatherhood, future, generosity, god, home, learning, lies, life, love, needs, neighbors, richness, strength, understanding, war, wealth, world, worth, and yout

Anyone who wants to understand me must first understand Russell, Kansas. It is my home, where my roots lie, and a constant source of strength. My father's view of the world as "stewers versus doers" registered early. From my neighbors, I learned to feel deeply for God, country and family. In Russell, I came to understand there are things worth living for, and, if need be, dying for. The Russell of my youth was not a place of wealth. Yet it was generous with the values that would shape my outlook and the compassion that would restore life's richness after I had begun to doubt my future following the war. Ever since, I have tried in my own way to give back some of what the town has given me. I have tried to defend and serve the America I learned to love in Russell.

A Quote by Blaise Pascal on fatherhood and leisure

Reverend Fathers, my letters did not usually follow each other at such close intervals, nor were they so long. , , , This one would not be so long had I but the leisure to make it shorter.

A Quote by Bishop Lancelot Andrewes on belief, christ, faith, fatherhood, god, goodness, grace, jesus, life, sons, and world

FAITH Coming unto God, I believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him: I know that my Redeemer liveth; that He is the Christ the Son of the Living God; that He is indeed the Saviour of the world; that He came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief. Through the grace of Jesus Christ we believe that we shall be saved even as our fathers withal. I believe verily to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

I am interested in physical medicine because my father was. I am interested in medical research because I believe in it. I am interested in arthritis because I have it.

A Quote by Bern Williams on fatherhood

The average man will bristle if you say his father was dishonest, but he will brag a little if he discovers that his great-grandfather was a pirate.
