The Importance of Fathers

What a father says to his children is not heard by the world, but it will be heard by posterity.
Jean Paul Richter

I believe that what we become depends on what our fathers teach us at odd moments, when they aren’t trying to teach us.
Umberto Eco

If mothers would understand that much of their importance lies in building up the father image for the child, the children would turn out well.
Samuel Liebowitz

A father is neither an anchor to hold us back, nor a sail to take us there, but a guiding light whose love shows us the way.
George Douglas

When I was a child I loved to watch my father shave. I sat on the closed toilet seat and marveled at the sound of the razor gliding over his face, pushing aside the foamy soap like a shovel in the snow. I adored him, this grand figure who slapped lotion on his cheeks every morning, buttoned his clean white shirt and hugged me good-bye.
