Father’s Day Quotes


When Father’s Day comes around we are reminded how important the men in our lives are. Fathers, Grandfathers, Uncles, Brothers and even Sons make a big impact in our lives and deserve to be recognized for their contributions. With that in mind, here are some great quotes to remember this Father’s Day:

    • It is easier for a father to have children than for children to have a real father. -Pope John XXIII
    • I know that I will never find my father in any other man who comes into my life, because it is a void in my life that can only be filled by him. – Halle Berry
    • A father is a man who expects his son to be as good a man as he meant to be. – Frank A. Clark
    • Any man can be a father but it takes someone special to be a dad. – Anne Geddes
    • A truly rich man is one whose children run into his arms when his hands are empty. – Proverb
    • The authority of a father to guide and govern the education of his child is a very sacred thing, bestowed by the Almighty, and to be sustained to the uttermost by human law. It is not to be abrogated or abridged, without the most coercive reason. For the parent and the child alike, its maintenance is essential, that their reciprocal relations may be fruitful of happiness and virtue; and no disturbing intervention should be allowed between them whilst those relations are pure and wholesome and conducive to their mutual benefit. – Lord O’Hagan (1870)

    • It doesn’t matter who my father was; it matters who I remember he was. – Anne Sexton
    • The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother. – Theodore Hesburgh
    • My father didn’t tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it. – Clarence Budington Kelland
