Father's Day

It is much easier to become a father than to be one.  ~Kent Nerburn, Letters to My Son: Reflections on Becoming a Man, 1994

 My father used to play with my brother and me in the yard.  Mother would come out and say, "You're tearing up the grass."  "We're not raising grass," Dad would reply.  "We're raising boys."  ~Harmon Killebrew
 He didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it.  ~Clarence Budington Kelland
 A truly rich man is one whose children run into his arms when his hands are empty.  ~Author Unknown
 One father is more than a hundred Schoolemasters.  ~George Herbert, Outlandish Proverbs, 1640
 Blessed indeed is the man who hears many gentle voices call him father!  ~Lydia M. Child, Philothea: A Romance, 1836
 Sometimes the poorest man leaves his children the richest inheritance.  ~Ruth E. Renkel
 A father carries pictures where his money used to be.  ~Author Unknown

 The father who would taste the essence of his fatherhood must turn back from the plane of his experience, take with him the fruits of his journey and begin again beside his child, marching step by step over the same old road.  ~Angelo Patri
