Reading Time: 2 minutes

Howdy and Happy Monday!

Today it’s just about Father’s Day! This Happy Monday is dedicated to all you  dads, gonna be dads and father of children.

Smarter people have said it better than me, so here is a quote to make you laugh, make you think, or just to make you thankful.

Spread the diaper in the position of the diamond with you at bat. Then, fold second base down to home and set the baby on the pitcher’s mound. Put first base and third together, bring up home plate and pin the three together. Of course, in case of rain, you gotta call the game and start all over again. Jimmy Piersal, on how to diaper a baby

To be a successful father, there’s one absolute rule: when you have a kid, don’t look at it for the first two years. Ernest Hemingway

If the new American father feels bewildered and even defeated, let him take comfort from the fact that whatever he does in any fathering situation has a fifty percent chance of being right. Bill Cosby

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

Fathers do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord. Ephesians 6:4: 

By the time a man realizes that maybe his father was right, he usually has a son who thinks he’s wrong. Charles Wadsworth

I have found the best way to give advice to your children is to find out what they want and then advise them to do it. Harry S Truman

It is much easier to become a father than to be one. Kent Nerburn

Noble fathers have noble children. Euripides

But I am prouder – infinitely prouder – to be a father. A soldier destroys in order to build; the father only builds, never destroys. The one has the potentiality of death; the other embodies creation and life. And while the hordes of death are mighty, the battalions of life are mightier still. It is my hope that my son, when I am gone, will remember me not from the battle field but in the home repeating with him our simple daily prayer, ‘Our Father who art in Heaven.’  Douglas Macarthur
