I was immensely moved by these fathers-day quotes. They reflect on the greatness of fathers, which are quite often ignored by people. Take a closer look at the father-child relationship with these great fathers-day quotes.
  • Mark Twain, Old Times on the Mississippi
    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.

  • Queen Victoria of England
    None of you can ever be proud enough of being the child of such a Father who has not his equal in this world – so great, so good, so faultless. Try, all of you, to follow in his footsteps and don't be discouraged, for to be really in everything like him none of you, I am sure, will ever be. Try, therefore, to be like him in some points, and you will have acquired a great deal.

  • Mario Cuomo
    I watched a small man with thick calluses on both hands work fifteen and sixteen hours a day. I saw him once literally bleed from the bottoms of his feet, a man who came here uneducated, alone, unable to speak the language, who taught me all I needed to know about faith and hard work by the simple eloquence of his example.

  • Mario Cuomo
    I talk and talk and talk, and I haven't taught people in 50 years what my father taught by example in one week.

  • Josefowitz
    My father died many years ago, and yet when something special happens to me, I talk to him secretly not really knowing whether he hears, but it makes me feel better to half believe it.
