Fathers

When a father gives to his son, both laugh; when a son gives to his father, both cry.
William Shakespeare

Anyone can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad, and that's why I call you dad, because you are so special to me. You taught me the game and you taught me how to play it right.
Wade Boggs

To a father growing old nothing is dearer than a daughter.
Euripides

The child is father of the man.
William Wordsworth

Sons have always a rebellious wish to be disillusioned by that which charmed their fathers.
Aldous Huxley

I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father’s protection.
Sigmund Freud
