“You don’t raise heroes, you raise sons. And if you treat them like sons, they’ll turn out to be heroes, even if it’s just in your own eyes.” ― Walter M. Schirra, Sr.
“Every dad, if he takes time out of his busy life to reflect upon his fatherhood, can learn ways to become an even better dad.” — Jack Baker
“Every father should remember one day his son will follow his example, not his advice.” ― Charles Kettering
“My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.” ― Jim Valvano
“It’s only when you grow up and step back from him—or leave him for your own home—it’s only then that you can measure his greatness and fully appreciate it.” ― Margaret Truman
“The quality of a father can be seen in the goals, dreams and aspirations he sets not only for himself, but for his family.” ― Reed Markham
“He adopted a role called being a father so that his child would have something mythical and infinitely important: a protector.” ―Tom Wolfe
“Recently I noticed my father’s watch in a dark corner of my safety deposit box. Its presence there exemplified the great value I had assigned it. As I turned the watch in my hand, I remembered my father’s commitment to being on time … always … if not early.” – Harold Ivan Smith
“The extension of the positive characteristics of a father can contribute more to the healing of a nation than all the money-laden do good programs combined. It is these caring, compassionate, respectful and loving attributes that can not only encourage and heal a family, but can be extended outward to a neighborhood, a town, a city, a territory, a region, and a country.” – Byron R. Pulsifer
“What works for one couple or father may not work for another couple or father. You will need to research to locate or help find your comfort zone for you and your growing family.” – Jacob Westlin
“Part of being a successful father is taking extreme care of our children. The other part of that equation is that we must also take extreme care of their mother.” – Nate Dallas
“The guys who fear becoming fathers don’t understand that fathering is not something perfect men do, but something that perfects the man. The end product of child raising is not the child but the parent.” – Frank Pittman
“A truly rich man is one whose children run into his arms when his hands are empty.” Author Unknown
“To be your father is the greatest honor I have ever received. It allowed me to touch mystery for a moment, and to see my love made flesh. If I could have but one wish, it would be for you to pass that love along. After all, there is not much more to life than that.” – Kent Nerburn
“Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretzky, Pete Marivetch, John Maxwell, and others are all examples of a father’s strong influence in the success of their children. Sometimes that influence leads in right directions and at other times not. But the strong father’s influence provides identity, values, and confidence in the son or daughter.” – William Johnson
Blessings in abundance!
