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


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

~Author Unknown

When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around.  But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years.
~Mark Twain, “Old Times on the Mississippi” Atlantic Monthly, 1874


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

*This one especially speaks to me today as my dad is no longer with me but with God, my heavenly Father.
