Father! - to God himself we cannot give a holier name. ~William Wordsworth

My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person: he believed in me. ~Jim Valvano

What a father says to his children is not heard by the world, but it will be heard for posterity. ~ Jean Paul Richter

Father taught us that opportunity and responsibility go hand in hand. I think we all act on that principle; on the basic human impulse that makes a man want to make the best of what's in him and what's been given him. ~Laurence Rockefeller

One father is more than a hundred schoolmasters. ~George Herbert

My father didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it. ~Clarence Budington Kelland

A man's worth is measured by how he parents his children. What he gives them, what he keeps away from them, the lessons he teaches and the lessons he allows them to learn on their own. ~Lisa Rogers

You don't have to deserve your mother's love. You have to deserve your father's. He's more particular. ~Robert Frost

It is easy for a father to have children than for children to have a real father. ~Pope John XXIII

Being a great father is like shaving. No matter how good you shaved today, you have to do it again tomorrow. ~Reed Markham

That is the thankless position of the father in the family-the provider for all, and the enemy of all. ~August Strindberg

The fundamental defect of fathers is that they want their children to be a credit to them. ~Bertrand Russell

The older I get, the smarter my father seems to get. ~Tim Russert

Dad taught me everything I know. Unfortunately, he didn't teach me everything he knows. ~Al Unser, Jr.

Black and white still of father and child

It is a wise father that knows his own child. ~William Shakespeare

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

Fatherhood is pretending the present you love most is soap-on-a-rope. ~Bill Cosby

The father is always a Republican toward his son, and his mother's always a Democrat." ~Robert Frost

The father of a daughter is nothing but a high-class hostage. A father turns a stony face to his sons, berates them, shakes his antlers, paws the ground, snorts, runs them off into the underbrush, but when his daughter puts her arm over his shoulder and says, 'Daddy, I need to ask you something,' he is a pat of butter in a hot frying pan. ~Garrison Keillor

Life was a lot simpler when what we honored was father and mother rather than all major credit cards. ~Robert Orben

It is not flesh and blood but the heart which makes us fathers and sons. ~Johann Schiller

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

A father is a man who expects his son to be as good a man as he meant to be. ~Frank A. Clark

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

Love and fear. Everything the father of a family says must inspire one or the other. ~Joseph Joubert

Old as she was, she still missed her daddy sometimes. ~Gloria Naylor

At a time of reproductive freedom for women, fatherhood must be more than a matter of DNA. A man must choose to be a father in the same way that a woman chooses to be a mother. ~Mel Feit

A man knows he is growing old because he begins to look like his father. ~Gabriel Garcia Marquez

To support mother and father, to cherish wife and children, and to have a simple livlihood; this is greatest blessing. ~Buddha

      As a child I had the best dad in the world. But he made a mistake my dad left me and my 6 sisters and 1 brother. At the age of 10 years old I couldn't understand why he ran from his responsibility . My dad died 2 years ago, he left once and he left me twice and I didn't get a chance to say I forgive you, for not being my Dad. RIP Alfonso Davila may God forgive you for your sin's

      My real father was a crazy lazy alcoholic. I had to take care of him and my drug addicted mother. I am only thirteen and have been adopted bby some wonderful people. Sometimes i wish that they were my biological family. sure we all might fight but we still are a fanmily my real dad just chugged another bottle of vodka. i never have had a dad to look up to. But the foster dad that i now have is the best. He knows how make me laugh, cry and cheer me up. My dad will always be there for me. i almost cried while i was reding the quotes. My parents also helped me meet my current boyfreind!

      fathers are very important but sometimes mothers choose our fathers after we are here... is that ok?...i do not remember my father and he is a distant memory to my mother...but is now a part of my that ok? mother has chosen 2 more fathers for that ok? second father instilled fear and love in me...but mostly that ok?...when he passed away i cried...but my sister/his daughter did that ok? third father instilled security and hatred in me... is that ok? it is respect, admiration, gratitude and love of a that ok?

      i love my dad....he's a real role model for me..

      now that i have a baby boy...

      the more i realize the unconditional love he gave me..

      raise me till become the way i am now..

      we share our tears of joy together upon my baby boy's birth in the hospital tough..

      back when i was a kid, he never really shown he's love openly, he taught me in a hard way and full of discipline..

      but now i realize that all things he taught me are the things that keeps me going...being a man!

      being a man you should think and see everything 100 times ahead..

      being a husband you should think and sees everything 1000 times ahead...

      being a father you should think and sees everything 10000 times ahead..

      I am a father of 11 years. I hated my dad for most of my childhood. Then I grew up and realized the man had 30 years on this earth on me. I knew he loved me but why was he always so hard, indifferent, always gone at work and focused on everything negative about me. Then I realized he had one of those horrible fathers like some of the ones mentioned here. I took it upon myself to give him the love and respect a father NEEDS from his child. I stopped being the bitter, resentful and rebellious son. Stopped talking back at and bad about him. This was a man who intolerantly beat me over spilled milk or broken toys. A few months later I can hardly recognize the man. He is not only the excellent father I knew he was inside; loving, caring, proactive, positive and gentle, but he has turned into the ideal husband to my mother. No hard feelings anymore, just a few scars and the best friend I’ve ever had. Break the cycle. Regardless. No excuses... Just break it! God bless everyone! :)

      My father is dying. He wasn't perfect, he wasn't always there, and there's loads of things he could have done differently. Having said that, he is my daddy and I'm going to miss him so much. The quote that hits me is...

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

      I think this just sums it all up. I love you daddy and I wish so many things had been different, but those things don't change how I feel about you or that I will miss you very much.

      At first a touchy subject because my dad wasn't around not by any fault of his own he didn't know who I was. But I had replacements and its true it takes DNA to be a father but it takes a whole lot more to be a dad. Optimistic quotes aren't a bad thing they should remind you men what you have to live up to. MY home life was never good and women tend to look for men like their father or father figure so I love that these quotes are here. Being a real father is something to look up to and children deserve someone that loves them like only a father can.

      Great tribute to the men out there who are great dads. (I liked it so much, I linked it to one of my hubs.) I've always heard, "Any man can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a Daddy." In fact, there is a cross stitch that hangs in my parents' bedroom that proclaims it. I am proud to have a man such as this as my Dad. I couldn't have asked for a better one. I wish everyone could say the same...

      Our parents were not perfect. Nor was I. I live with guilt and regret. It is now my job as a grandparent to impart wisdom to my son and tell him of my hindsight and imperfections and help him try to not those same mistakes. I cannot dwell on the past. I CAN learn from it and move forward a better person/parent.

      Re: Abby's comment, I don't know who said it first, but this quote has been repeated almost adnauseum, ever since. I disagree with it, to some extent. Loving our children's mother is important, certainly, but I don't believe it is the most important thing we can do for them. I would say it is loving them and loving and obeying God.

      My father never earned his title. For that I have learned how important it is to have a good father, and of how much I missed out on. I am not a father, nor will I ever be. I envy men that are good fathers, and have the opportunity to leave an indelible mark on posterity by raising a child responsibly.

      when you have a second chance at having a father, these quotes mean so much more than they did before and then when you find out that you are going to lose the father you love they are words that speak for your heart when you yourself cannot.

      The father of a daughter is nothing but a high-class hostage. A father turns a stony face to his sons, berates them, shakes his antlers, paws the ground, snorts, runs them off into the underbrush, but when his daughter puts her arm over his shoulder and says, 'Daddy, I need to ask you something,' he is a pat of butter in a hot frying pan. ~Garrison Keillor

      Oh how true. The pat of my little girl hands on my shoulders, was a whole lot different then my boy's. It uh kinda melted my heart.

      I am a father who knows how lucky he really is. I have a 23 year old daughter, 21 year old son, two year old son, one year old daughter and another daughter on the way. Of all the jobs I have ever had, being a dad is the most rewarding.

      Thanks Maddie.

      May I be so bold as to add a quote of my own?  I take an early  morning walk most days, and one morning seeing the length of my own shadow, I realized that this was a picture of the effects a father has on his children.  So my quote is simply:

      A father casts a long shadow.

      Thanks. As my kids grow older, I have gone from heroic fixer of bikes, and baiter of hooks, to knower of nothing. It's good to know I'm not as clueless as my two teens seem to think.

      My father gave me a great example as to how not to be a father. I cherish everyday that I get to spend watching my daughter grow. I take pride in her success' and in her failures. I am touched deeply by your hub and hope that many others take the time to read it.

      Fantastic quotes about Fathers. My Father taught me that you can learn anything you want without a college degree.
