Tribute to Fathers

I loved my father – always deep in my subconscious I have referred judgments back to him, what he would have thought or done.
Edward Fitzgerald

When someone who knew my father says I’m like him, I feel flattered. He was a shy, undemonstrative man, but good natured with a great, whimsical sense of humor.
Paul Newman

When I think about our relationship, I’m always reminded of a picture of me and my dad under his old car, Dad teaching me how to change the oil. If my dad had had his way, he would have taken me everywhere with him – including to work. I have so many great memories of time spent fishing, hunting, going to ball games together.
Leigh Ann Hester

The graduating class at Yale University voted on this question: “What man in the world do you most admire?” And a majority answered: “My father.”
William Phelps

Raising two daughters, Dad had to learn about dresses, ballet and even tea parties. To be candid, he wasn’t very good at any of those things. But he did give me something of himself that has sustained me through very difficult times: persistence, toughness and the unswerving belief that God is faithful and we can trust Him with our lives . . . and the lives of our children.

Find a Mentor

The mentor is someone who tells you what you may not want to hear in order for you to see what you may not want to see so you can be all you have always wanted to be.
Don Shula

To a large extent, how well we play the game of life will be determined not merely by the quality of our mentors but also by their sheer quantity. Seek out as many good mentors as you can possibly find.
M. Scott Peck

One attains fortune through knowledge. One attains knowledge through mentors.
Italian Proverb

Study anyone who’s great, and you’ll find that they apprenticed to a master, or several masters. Therefore, if you want to achieve greatness, renown and superlative success, you must apprentice to a master.
Robert Allen

Role models and mentors play an important part in the success of people with real talent. They can impart skills, either by example or by actively teaching us. More important, they can help us keep our commitments.
