~ George Bernard Shaw ~
That he delights in the misery of others no man will confess, and yet what other motive can make a father cruel?

~ Bertrand Russell ~
The father who does not teach his son his duties is equally guilty with the son who neglects them.

Scratch any father, you find someone chock-full of qualms and romantic terrors, believing change is a threat -- like your first shoes with heels on, like your first bicycle I it took such months to get.
~ Phyllis Mcginley ~
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.
