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.
Jean de La Fontaine

Parents are often so busy with the physical rearing of children that they miss the glory of parenthood, just as the grandeur of the trees is lost when raking leaves.
Be kind to thy father, for when thou were young, who loved thee so fondly as he? He caught the first accents that fell from thy tongue, and joined in thy innocent glee.
To a father growing old nothing is dearer than a daughter.
It doesn't matter who my father was; it matters who I remember he was.
The greatest gift I ever had came from God, and I call him Dad!
To her the name of father was another name for love.
The father is always a Republican toward his son, and his mother's always a democrat.
Margaret Atwood, Cat's Eyes
