- Ingmar Bergman
“I had a bad conscience until I discovered that having a bad conscience about something so gravely serious as leaving your children is an affectation, a way of achieving a little suffering that can’t for a moment be equal to the suffering you’ve caused,” he says. “I haven’t put an ounce of effort into my families. I never have.”
- David Letterman, TV Host
"And here I am, 56, and by all rights it shouldn't be happening. But, there's nothing we can do about it now. And I'm terribly excited about this. I'm scared silly about this. I'm going to be a father."
After the cheers and applause from the studio audience subsided, Letterman joked about the upside of becoming a father for the first time at his age: "By the time the child has trouble in life, you know, I'll be dead. I'll be long gone. By the time the kid's out stealing cars, you know, Dad will be dead a few years."

"I hope I will be balanced, I hope I will be consistent...I am hoping to have a lot of time for my family."
"And even if I don't have enough time, I want to become very good at making time seem to pass slower when I'm in their company. Parenthood will be a whole process of discovery in an area that I have no
knowledge of, really."

"Christians must recognize that this rebellion against parenthood represents nothing less than an absolute revolt against God's design. The Scripture points to barrenness as a great curse and children as a divine gift...The church should insist that the biblical formula calls for adulthood to mean marriage and marriage to mean children. This reminds us of our responsibility to raise boys to be husbands and fathers and girls to be wives and mothers...Willful barrenness and chosen childlessness must be named as moral rebellion."
