“The true character of a society is revealed in how it treats its children.”

NELSON MANDELA

“As fathers, we need to be involved in our children’s lives not just when it’s convenient or easy, and not just when they’re doing well — but when it’s difficult and thankless, and they’re struggling. That is when they need us most.”

BARACK OBAMA

OBAMA

“Fatherhood is the most insanely amazing, most beautiful, unbelievable thing that can ever happen to you”

“I don’t have to prepare to be wrapped around my daughter’s finger, I have been wrapped around her little finger since she plopped out into this world”

RYAN REYNOLDS

“I have found the very best way to advise your children is to find out what they want to do and advise them to do it.”

PRESIDENT HARRY TRUMAN

Hawking

“One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose, and life is empty without it, Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don’t throw it away.”

STEPHEN HAWKING

“When you meet your kids you realise they deserve great parents and you have to become the person they deserve”

RYAN GOSLING

Redford

“I believe in letting kids be kids for as long as possible. I do constantly talk to them about giving everything their best and doing the thing you love, because I have managed to find my way into a job that doesn’t feel like a job, and if my kids can be lucky enough to do that, then that is the goal, I think. That is the Holy Grail. I want them to just follow their passions and then work hard at it. Because even the thing you love is going to be a pain at some point.”

HUGH JACKMAN

“Don’t wear white…”
