Without my dad, I wouldn’t be here.
Man becomes man only by his intelligence, but he is man only by his heart.
Anyone can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad, and that’s why I call you dad, because you are so special to me. You taught me the game and you taught me how to play it right.
My dad was my best friend and greatest role model. He was an amazing dad, coach, mentor, soldier, husband and friend.
Old as she was, she still missed her daddy sometimes.
Being a father has been, without a doubt, my greatest source of achievement, pride and inspiration. Fatherhood has taught me about unconditional love, reinforced the importance of giving back and taught me how to be a better person.
It’s an ongoing joy being a dad.
I would say my greatest achievement in life right now – my greatest achievement period is – and I’m still trying to achieve it – is to be a wonderful father to my kids.
When a father gives to his son, both laugh; when a son gives to his father, both cry.
Becoming a dad means you have to be a role model for your son and be someone he can look up to.
A good father believes that he does wisely to encourage enterprise, productive skill, prudent self-denial, and judicious expenditure on the part of his son.
My father used to say that it’s never too late to do anything you wanted to do. And he said, ‘You never know what you can accomplish until you try.’
This is the price you pay for having a great father. You get the wonder, the joy, the tender moments – and you get the tears at the end, too.
I mean, I look at my dad. He was twenty when he started having a family, and he was always the coolest dad. He did everything for his kids, and he never made us feel like he was pressured. I know that it must be a great feeling to be a guy like that.
We looked up to our father. He still is much greater than us.
My role model is my dad.
I wasn’t anything special as a father. But I loved them and they knew it.
I am not ashamed to say that no man I ever met was my father’s equal, and I never loved any other man as much.
I can definitely say the older I’ve got the better I’ve become at being a dad and a husband.
I’m a strong person, I’m a strong family man, I’m a strong husband and a strong father.
I decided in my life that I would do nothing that did not reflect positively on my father’s life.
The most important thing in the world is family and love.
Father’s Day is hopefully a time when the culture says, ‘This is our moment to look at who our men and boys are.’
One of the greatest titles in the world is parent, and one of the biggest blessings in the world is to have parents to call mom and dad.
One of the greatest gifts my father gave me – unintentionally – was witnessing the courage with which he bore adversity. We had a bit of a rollercoaster life with some really challenging financial periods. He was always unshaken, completely tranquil, the same ebullient, laughing, jovial man.
My dad is my best friend, my father, and my boss. When I do something that is exciting and he likes it, it feels three times as good as you can imagine.
I would want my legacy to be that I was a great son, father and friend.
I’m always going to love my father.
I pray to be a good servant to God, a father, a husband, a son, a friend, a brother, an uncle, a good neighbor, a good leader to those who look up to me, a good follower to those who are serving God and doing the right thing.
I’m a father; that’s what matters most. Nothing matters more.
The number one thing I’ve been doing is being daddy.
Our dad was a great guy and we will never forget him.
Fatherhood is the best thing that could happen to me, and I’m just glad I can share my voice.
I would love to be a father. I had a great father who taught me how gratifying that is. I’m not going to deny myself that. I think I’d be good at it. Everybody wants that experience. I definitely do.
I was raised by my father; I was daddy’s girl.
Being a father helps me be more responsible… you see more things than you’ve ever seen.
A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
You don’t have to deserve your mother’s love. You have to deserve your father’s.
Until you have a son of your own… you will never know the joy, the love beyond feeling that resonates in the heart of a father as he looks upon his son.
Dad, wherever you are, you are gone but you will never be forgotten.
I have a Father’s Day every day.
The best thing about being a dad? Well, I think it’s just the thing that every man wants – to have a son and heir.
I’m a good dad; I spend a lot of time with my kids.
One father is more than a hundred schoolmasters.
I want to congratulate all the men out there who are working diligently to be good fathers whether they are stepfathers, or biological fathers or just spiritual fathers.
To me, having kids is the ultimate job in life. I want to be most successful at being a good father.
I’ve said it before, but it’s absolutely true: My mother gave me my drive, but my father gave me my dreams. Thanks to him, I could see a future.
I admire my father greatly.
My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.
In our house, Mother’s Day is every day. Father’s Day, too. In our house, parents count. They do important work and that work matters. One day just doesn’t cut for us.
It is a wise father that knows his own child.
My father always used to say that when you die, if you’ve got five real friends, then you’ve had a great life.
When it comes to Father’s Day, I will remember my dad for both being there to nurture me and also for the times he gave me on my own to cultivate my own interests and to nurture my own spirit.
It doesn’t matter who my father was; it matters who I remember he was.
My dad’s not here, but he’s watching in heaven.
My Dad is my hero.
I imagine God to be like my father. My father was always the voice of certainty in my life. Certainty in the wisdom, certainty in the path, certainty always in God. For me God is certainty in everything. Certainty that everything is good and everything is God.
Dad taught me everything I know. Unfortunately, he didn’t teach me everything he knows.
To be as good as our fathers we must be better, imitation is not discipleship.
I was raised in the greatest of homes… just a really great dad, and I miss him so much… he was a good man, a real simple man… Very faithful, always loved my mom, always provided for the kids, and just a lot of fun.
To a father growing old nothing is dearer than a daughter.
My dad’s my best mate, and he always will be.
Son, brother, father, lover, friend. There is room in the heart for all the affections, as there is room in heaven for all the stars.
I had no expectations about fatherhood, really, but it’s definitely a journey I’m glad to be taking. Number one, it’s a great learning experience. When my mother told me it’s a 24/7 job, she wasn’t kidding.
We should all aspire in life to do a multitude of things well – to be a great father, to be a good husband, to be a good lover, you know, to try to do things the best you can is very important to me.
I think my mom put it best. She said, ‘Little girls soften their daddy’s hearts.’
Mothers play an important role as the heart of the home, but this in no way lessens the equally important role fathers should play, as head of the home, in nurturing, training, and loving their children.
