Text Quotes
In my father’s later years he asked several times that I remember him the way I knew him. He said that after his death, people would talk. They would say ‘things’ about him and he wouldn’t be there to defend himself.  (Jennifer Grant Quotes) Simple. Pared down. Timeless. The ties were never too thick or too thin; the pants were never too flared or too skinny. In my life with Dad, he wore Western apparel because we went riding - jeans, cowboy boots, the turquoise belt buckle. But it was all very simple, and that classic look is very ‘Ralph Lauren.’  (Jennifer Grant Quotes) It’s something he used to say when he was happy. It could be a very, very simple day. We might be sitting out on the front lawn. Dad loved classical music and we might be listening to some Stravinsky or something and having some tea and eggs. And he’d say, ‘Oh, good stuff, isn’t it?’  (Jennifer Grant Quotes) He was an amazing father. I clutched my memories of him to my heart for so long, but he’s a part of the world.  (Jennifer Grant Quotes) I remember him reading ‘Sleeping Beauty,’ and he would play the score by Tchaikovsky as he read it. We’d also read ‘Winnie the Pooh,’ and, you know, those probably that he most often read me were ‘Beatrix Potter’ books, ‘The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck’ and ‘The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle.’ I still have at least 15 of them.  (Jennifer Grant Quotes) Can’t blame men for wanting him. And wouldn’t be surprised if Dad even mildly flirted back. Dad somewhat enjoyed being called gay. He said it made women want to prove the assertion wrong.  (Jennifer Grant Quotes) He’d forgiven who he needed to forgive, let go of what he needed to, and accepted himself as he was. Archibald Alexander Leach, Cary Grant, and all.  (Jennifer Grant Quotes) Most men are far younger when they have their children and they’re building their careers. If they are older they probably don’t have the luxury of retiring - and generally sixty something-year-old men don’t choose to have a child and spend all their time with that child. So it was a very unique situation.  (Jennifer Grant Quotes) The process was remarkably cathartic. I’d sit and listen to my father’s voice - having not heard some of these tapes for 30 years and hearing his voice laying me down for a nap, our giggles and cooking dinner - and I remembered all those wonderful days. Normal days.  (Jennifer Grant Quotes) I’m sure there was some part of his soul was intrinsically happy, but he probably had to go through some permutations to really get that to blossom. I’m sure Dad had his challenges, but I think that joy was there from the beginning and he had to find a way to make his life support that and express that  (Jennifer Grant Quotes) I have a lot of favorite films. I tend to love the silliness of ‘Bringing Up Baby.’ ‘Charade’ is fantastic. ‘His Girl Friday,’ the banter in that, that alone made me want to be a writer  (Jennifer Grant Quotes) One of the myths about Dad was that he was mean. That simply wasn’t true. I always found him generous to a fault but he wasn’t reckless with his money, which was rather rare in Hollywood. He’d grown up with nothing and he wasn’t about to fritter it all away  (Jennifer Grant Quotes) I fell completely in love with acting. I guess I was bitten  (Jennifer Grant Quotes) The grief of losing my father has come in waves over the years, as it does with most people. His love and devotion as a father provided my closest, most intimate relationship. Dad, and our time together, is in my bones. While reflecting on him, the memories themselves seem to boil down into certain ‘essences of Dad.’  (Jennifer Grant Quotes) Few men in their 70s looked as good as my father did. What was his secret? Genes, maybe, since he didn’t exercise or diet, and he kept a candy drawer, drank a pot of black coffee every day, and read in the middle of the night. Still, he took such joy in being a dad - and in life in general - and his happiness showed  (Jennifer Grant Quotes) I am my father’s only child. The world knows a two-dimensional Cary Grant. As charming a star and as remarkable a gentleman as he was, he was still a more thoughtful and loving father  (Jennifer Grant Quotes) Shoot for the moon. If you miss, shoot again  (Jennifer Grant Quotes) It’s not what your parents give you. It’s what you do with your own stuff  (Jennifer Grant Quotes) Dad was synonymous with his charm and wit and grace, and it was sort of the perfect way to go for him  (Jennifer Grant Quotes) Dad somewhat enjoyed being called gay. He said it made women want to prove the assertion wrong  (Jennifer Grant Quotes) It’s better to walk alone, than with a crowd going in the wrong direction  (Jennifer Grant Quotes)
