Famous quotes containing the words falling and/or long:

    The falling out of faithful friends, renewing is of love.
    Richard Edwards (c.1523–1566)

    We long for our father. We wear his clothes, and actually try to fill his shoes. . . . We hang on to him, begging him to teach us how to do whatever is masculine, to throw balls or be in the woods or go see where he works. . . . We want our fathers to protect us from coming too completely under the control of our mothers. . . . We want to be seen with Dad, hanging out with men and doing men things.
    Frank Pittman (20th century)
