Description

"I felt something impossible for me to explain in words. Then when they took her away, it hit me. I got scared all over again and began to feel giddy. Then it came to me--I was a father."--Nat King Cole"I can run the country or I can control Alice [his daughter]. I can't do both."--Theodore Roosevelt"The simplest toy, one which even the youngest child can operate, is called a grandparent."--Sam Levenson"John Elway is a great football player. He used to be my son. Now I'm his father."--Jack Elway"My father was not a failure. After all, he was the father of a president of the United States."--Harry S. Truman"When I was fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years."--Mark Twain THE QUOTABLE DAD is a collection of hundreds of memorable quotations about the relationships between fathers and their sons and daughters--some wise, some thoughtful, some hilarious. The quotations range from the thoughts of an expectant father, to the rewards and challenges of raising children, to the delightful musings on being a grandfather. They are culled from sources as varied as famous writers, actors, athletes, comedians, captains of industry, politicians, and philosophers.show more
