My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.
The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.
One father is more than a hundred schoolmasters.
I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father's protection.
My father didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it.
The greatest gift I ever had
Came from God; I call him Dad!
It is easier for a father to have children than for children to have a real father.
My father used to play with my brother and me in the yard. Mother would come out and say, 'You're tearing up the grass'; 'We're not raising grass,' Dad would reply. 'We're raising boys.'
Fatherhood is pretending the present you love most is soap-on-a-rope.
Old as she was, she still missed her daddy sometimes.
It is a wise father that knows his own child.
To a father growing old nothing is dearer than a daughter.
A father is always making his baby into a little woman. And when she is a woman he turns her back again.
A father carries pictures where his money used to be.
The father is always a Republican toward his son, and his mother's always a Democrat.
A mother has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.
A mother is not a person to lean on, but a person to make leaning unnecessary.
A daughter is the happy memories of the past, the joyful moments of the present, and the hope and promise of the future.
There's something like a line of gold thread running through a man's words when he talks to his daughter, and gradually over the years it gets to be long enough for you to pick up in your hands and weave into a cloth that feels like love itself.
God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers.
