~ Fathers Day Quotes - Honoring Real Dads ~



Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away ~ Dinah Craik

"Once, an old man was sitting on a bench of a garden with his 25 yrs old son. There was a tree beside the bench. The old man saw a bird sitting on the tree and asked his son -""what is that?""  His son replied, ""its a crow".
The old man again asked “what is this?” His son said, “I already told you that its a crow”. The old man again asked what is that? His son angrily said, "Are you deaf or mad, papa? How many times must I tell you that it’s a crow. Can't you understand?"

The old man, patiently replied, "my dear son, when you were 5 years old, you asked me the same question 174 times a day – What is this, what is that. I replied every-time with a kiss, “that is a crow”!  Now how come you get so irritated when I ask you only three times. The son just stared at his dad. Let me tell you, said his dad. It’s the difference between the love of a dad for his child and the love from a child!"

Remembering Dad:-
When I was:
Four years old: My daddy can do anything.
Five years old: My daddy knows a whole lot.
Six years old: My dad is smarter than your dad.
Eight years old: My dad doesn’t know exactly everything.
Ten years old: In the olden days, when my dad grew up, things were sure different.
Twelve years old: Oh, well, naturally, Dad doesn’t know anything about that. He is too old to remember his childhood.
Fourteen years old: Don’t pay any attention to my dad. He is so old-fashioned.
Twenty-one years old: Him? My Lord, his hopelessly out of date.
Twenty-five years old: Dad knows about it, but then he should, because he has been around so long.
Thirty years old: Maybe we should ask Dad what he thinks. After all, his had a lot of experience.
Thirty-five years old: I’m not doing a single thing until I talk to Dad.
Forty years old: I wonder how Dad would have handled it. He was so wise.
Fifty years old: I’d give anything if Dad were here now so I could talk this over with him. Too bad I didn’t appreciate how smart he was. I could have learned a lot from him ~ Anonymous

Sherman made the terrible discovery that men make about their fathers sooner or later... that the man before him was not an aging father but a boy, a boy much like himself, a boy who grew up and had a child of his own and, as best he could, out of a sense of duty and, perhaps love, adopted a role called Being a Father so that his child would have something mythical and infinitely important: a Protector, who would keep a lid on all the chaotic and catastrophic possibilities of life ~ Tom Wolfe

Sometimes the poorest man leaves his children the richest inheritance ~ Ruth E. Renkel

Spread the diaper in the position of the diamond with you at bat.  Then fold second base down to home and set the baby on the pitcher's mound.  Put first base and third together, bring up home plate and pin the three together.  Of course, in case of rain, you gotta call the game and start all over again ~ Jimmy Piersal

There's one sad truth in life I've found
While journeying east and west -

Are those we love the best.
We flatter those we scarcely know,
We please the fleeting guest,
And deal full many a thoughtless blow
To those who love us best ~ by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
