Fathers Day Quotes

When you take a look at all the pages on the internet to search for  great fathers day quotes, it seems a little difficult to find the really positive quotes and sayings about fathers.

There are of course a lot of reasons for that.

One of them is that the role of the father has always been more distant. He had to take care of the family income, bringing the food home to the family and providing a secure shelter. 
That was the way he showed his love to his children, according to the more or less unspoken rules of society, almost up to today.

When I look around I am so happy to see that this pattern in the family has changed a lot, and the fathers of today are much more affectionate and caring, taking a much bigger part in their children's lives.

How his role has been, and I guess will still be in a lot of families is very well described in this quote:

Listen, there is no way any true man is going to let children live around him in his home and not discipline and teach, fight and mold them until they know all he knows. His goal is to make them better than he is. Being their friend is a distant second to this.” - Victor Devlin

Whereas the newer aspect of the father's role, or the way it would be great if it was, is seen from this quote:

Being a role model is the most powerful form of educating...too often fathers neglect it because they get so caught up in making a living they forget to make a life.” - John Wooden

That is of course if you are so lucky to have a father who could be a good role model - but I think that if you want to find Father's Day Quotes it is because you want to celebrate just that!

You will find a lot of clip art for Father's Day here.


Here comes the Father's Day sayings and quotes to use for sms, gift tags, letters and more on Father's day. 

If you add a Thank You to these quotes, I think they will be very well received by any father on Father's Day:

"My father didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it" - Clarence Kelland 

"A dad is someone who lets you find your own way." - Unknown

"A father is the one man who will never give up on you! " - Unknown

"A child looks up at the stars and wonders. Great fathers put a child on his shoulders and helps them to grab a star" - Reed Markham

If you like you can always change these quotes to fit what you want to say.

Like changing the quote "A dad is someone who lets you find your own way" to "Thank you Dad for letting me find my own way." or  the quote above to "Thank you Dad for never giving up on me."
