Thoughts for Thursday: Fathers

Thoughts for Thursday is a new meme hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

With this Sunday being Father's Day, I thought it appropriate that this week's theme be quotes about Fathers. (I chose green in honor of my father. It's his favorite color. ;D)

It is a wise father that knows his own child.--William Shakespeare
The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.--Theodore Hesburgh
"The monsters are gone."
"Really? Doubtful.
"I killed the monsters. That's what fathers do."--Fiona Wallace
Blessed is the man who hears many gentle voices call him father.--Lydia M. Child 
A father is a man who expects his son to be as good a man as he meant to be.--Frank A. Clark

Which is your favorite quote about fathers? Do you have one to add?

    I love those quotes especially "Blessed is the man who hears many gentle voices call him father." Great selection though!
