Word Origin Comics: If You Can’t Be a Dashing Figure Would You Settle for Being a Figurehead?

What’s a figurehead, Daddy?

Admiral. That part of a warship which does the talking while the figurehead does the thinking.

—- Ambrose Bierce

Dad has told me that he wished he would have showed the players how much he really cared for them, instead of always presenting himself as this stoic figurehead like he did at times.

—- Jim Mora

It’s a wonderful feeling when your father becomes not a god but a man to you- when he comes down from the mountain and you see he’s this man with weaknesses. And you love him as this whole being, not as a figurehead.

—- Robin Williams
