Famous quotes with Papa

  • I fed them every day. So it was a papa that kept food on the table for them. I did that. I did my part.
    Joseph Jackson
  • La plupart des femmes obtiennent leur belle apparence de la mère, à moins que le papa se trouve être un chirurgien plastique.

  • My dear grandmother, we enjoy ourselves so much on our beloved Standart. Every day we go ashore with papa. Maria, Anastasia, and Aleksei go spearately. Olga and I go with papa, as papa walks a great deal, and Aleksei and the boys march up and down by the shore.
    Grand Duchess Tatiana Nikolaevna of Russia
  • Every bit of land is a holy land, and every drop of water is a holy water, and every single child is a son or a daughter of the one earth mama, and the one earth papa.
    Michael Franti
  • Love — but not marriage. Marriage means a four-post bed and papa and mamma between eleven and twelve. Love is aspiration: transparencies, colour, light, a sense of the unreal. But a wife — you know all about her — who her father was, who her mother was, what she thinks of you and her opinion of the neighbours over the way. Where, then, is the dream?
    George Moore (novelist)
