As many of you may already know, this Sunday is Father’s Day
You could argue that Father’s Day is just another one of those annual money making scams created by the sweaty palmed, suit wearing big wigs at Hallmark Towers, but that would be a bit cynical…
Father’s Day is a time to celebrate, or remember, our dads in all their quirky glory – after all, fatherhood can’t be easy.
With this in mind, here are a few choice quotes about fatherhood from a hand-picked selection of the world’s famous writers (past and present) for your reading pleasure:
“Before I got married, I had six theories about raising children; now I have six children and no theories.” – John Wilmot
“Son, there are many things a man has to do that he doesn’t like to do in order to protect his family.” – Ralph Moody
“Saturday mornings, I’ve learned, are a great opportunity for kids to sneak into your bed, fall back asleep and kick you in the face.” – Dan Pearce
“When a father gives to his son, both laugh; when a son gives to his father, both cry.” – William Shakespeare
To be a successful father, there’s on absolute rule: when you have a kid, don’t look at it for the first two years.” – Ernest Hemingway
“The child is the father of the man.” – William Wordsworth
I hope these quotes on fatherhood have inspired, amused or entertained (or perhaps even given you something to write in your dad’s greetings card) and whatever you’re doing on Sunday, have a happy Father’s Day.
