Patrick Hemingway

Famous quotes containing the words patrick and/or hemingway:

    The loosening, for some people, of rigid role definitions for men and women has shown that dads can be great at calming babies—if they take the time and make the effort to learn how. It’s that time and effort that not only teaches the dad how to calm the babies, but also turns him into a parent, just as the time and effort the mother puts into the babies turns her into a parent.
    —Pamela Patrick Novotny (20th century)

    To be a successful father ... there’s one absolute rule: when you have a kid, don’t look at it for the first two years.
    —Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961)
