Perpetual summer in your heart.

Come mothers and fathers throughout the land
And don't criticize what you can't understand

For the times they are a-changin'.
Bob Dylan

A father is always making his baby into a little woman. And when she is a woman he turns her back again.
Enid Bagnold

A photograph never grows old. You and I change, people change all through the months and years, but a photograph always remains the same. How nice to look at a photograph of mother or father taken many years ago. You see them as you remember them. But as people live on, they change completely. That is why I think a photograph can be kind.
Albert Einstein

The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.
Theodore M. Hesburgh

It is much easier to become a father than to be one.
Kent Nerburn

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
The Bonfire of the Vanities

There are three stages of a man's life: He believes in Santa Claus, he doesn't believe in Santa Claus, he is Santa Claus.

Euripides

Any man can be a father, but it takes a special person to be a dad.
Proverb

Gerald Manley Hopkins

Sleep and rest, sleep and rest,
Father will come to thee soon;
Rest, rest, on mother's breast,
Father will come to thee soon;
Father will come to his babe in the best,
Silver sails all out of the west,
Under the silver moon:
Sleep, my little one, sleep, my pretty one, sleep.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
Sweet and Low

When one has not had a good father, one must create one.
Friedrich Nietzsche

The thing to remember about fathers is, they're men. A girl has to keep it in mind: They are dragon-seekers, bent on improbable rescues. Scratch any father, you find someone chock-full of qualms and romantic terrors, believing change is a threat - like your first shoes with heels on, like your first bicycle I it took such months to get.
Phyllis McGinley

It doesn't matter who my father was; it matters who I remember he was.

Anne Frank

By the time a man realizes that maybe his father was right, he usually has a son who thinks he's wrong.
Charles Wadsworth

A father is a banker provided by nature.
French Proverb

I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father's protection.
Sigmond Freud

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

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.
John Gregory Brown

It kills you to see them grow up. But I guess it would kill you quicker if they didn't.
Barbara Kingsolver

Never raise your hand to your kids. It leaves your groin unprotected.
Red Buttons
