Nothing I’ve ever done has given me more joys and rewards than being a father to my children.
— Bill Cosby
I loved those years of being Mr. Mom. One of the saddest days in my life was when Jennifer said, “Dad, I can wash my own hair.”
— Billy Crystal
It’s quite astonishing: I see most of these fathers all year. Depending on the week, a few might be happy, and some are never happy. At this father-and-son tournament, they are all happy, every round, every day.
— Gary Player
When these parenting years have passed, something precious will have flickered and gone out of my life. Thus, I am resolved to enjoy every day that remains in this fathering era.
— Dr. James Dobson
Becoming a father fulfilled my life because it added a sense of immortality, with my life and spirit being passed on to future generations through my children. It also enabled me to relive my childhood through the disguise of being a parent, as I play with my children and their toys. I think each one of us maintains our childhood memories and fantasies. Being a parent allows us to release them.
