Several quotes about fathers.

I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father’s protection.

Sigmund Freud

The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.

Theodore Hesburgh

My father used to say that it’s never too late to do anything you wanted to do. And he said, ‘You never know what you can accomplish until you try.’

Michael Jordan

Nothing I’ve ever done has given me more joys and rewards than being a father to my children.

Bill Cosby

The death of my father is probably the biggest thing that I ever faced. Daddy and I were best friends.

  1. I regret the fact that it’s Freud’s quote that speaks very strongly to me. I could wish it to be just about anyone else’s …

  2. JF, I think you may enjoy my post yesterday King Solomon and XBox. Which one of these children’s playthings do you think a wise father would prefer his child spend their time playing?

    • You know my answer. Definitely, harp. I look at my grandchildren today and wonder how much their minds
      are harmed by all these achievements like TV, XBOXES, etc. Fortunately, my
      children taught them to play piano and to sing, to paint, to dance, to read a lot, to play tennis, ping pong
      and basketball and limited how much time they could watch TV and play video games.

        Llimiting time, I agree. However, most parents have no control over their kids. I mainly thought you would enjoy listening to this highly talented young girl based on the content of your posts

        • There is a simple explanation. 😉 I listened to this girl about a week ago and thought about
          making a post about her. You did it before me. 😉
          However, I disagree with you about “most parents have no control over their kids”. What prevents
          them from having control? My wife and I had good control, our children (daughter and son) also
          have good control over their kids. It’s done with love, but it is absolutely necessary.
          Our kids were happy and their kids (26, 23, 20, 17, 12) are happy and value family more
          than anything else.

            I should have said many instead of most based on the news I read and hear about some neighborhoods in Chicago with high crime.

            Your family is fortunately the opposite.

            PS the young harpist is really talented and I am partial to harp music. I sure hope I make it to heaven because I heard their are a lot of harps up there.
