"When one has not had a good father, one must create one."
"Any man can be a father,
but it takes a special person to be a dad."
"To support mother and father, to cherish wife and child
and to have a simple livelihood; this is the good luck."
"A truly rich man is one whose children run into his arms when his hands are empty."
"One night a father overheard his son pray:
Dear God, Make me the kind of man my Daddy is.
Later that night, the Father prayed,
Dear God, Make me the kind of man my son wants me to be."
"To a father growing old nothing is dearer than a daughter."
