fatherhood

A Quote by Angela Carter on emotion, fatherhood, inventions, justice, life, motherhood, satisfaction, and women

Mother goddesses are just as silly a notion as father gods. If a revival of the myths of these cults gives woman emotional satisfaction, it does so at the price of obscuring the real conditions of life. This is why they were invented in the first place.

A Quote by Angel Abrea on betrayal, criticism, faith, fatherhood, friendship, impatience, journeys, life, patience, travel, and path

When on life's journey it becomes our lot to travel with criticism of skeptics, the hate of some, the rejection of others, the impatience of many, or a friend's betrayal, we must be able to pray in such a manner that an abiding faith and a strong testimony that the Lord will be with us to the end, will compel us to say, "Nevertheless, Father, Thy will be done, and with Thy help, in patience I will follow firmly on the path that takes me back to Thee."

Angel Abrea (1933 -)

A Quote by Alfred North Whitehead on disappointment, effort, fatherhood, mathematics, science, study, water, and weapons

The study of mathematics is apt to commence in disappointment. . . . We are told that by its aid the stars are weighed and the billions of molecules in a drop of water are counted. Yet, like the ghost of Hamlet's father, this greatest science eludes the efforts of our mental weapons to grasp it.

Alfred Whitehead (1861 - 1947)
