    Re: Quotes about Dad

    A father carries pictures where his money used to be.
    Fathers Day Quote by: Unknown

    Never raise your hand to your kids. It leaves your groin unprotected.
    Fathers Day Quote by: Red Buttons


    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.


    True love is wanting to give to another person without any thought about
    who’s getting the better of the deal.

    Love always creates, it never destroys. In this lie's man's only promise

    ~All quotes by Leo Buscaglia

    I liked this one too. It's very true. This one reminds me of my dad
