Quote of the Day
Being a father has been, without a doubt, my greatest source of achievement, pride and inspiration. Fatherhood has taught me about unconditional love, reinforced the importance of giving back and taught me how to be a better person.
Real fatherhood means love and commitment and sacrifice and a willingness to share responsibility and not walking away from one's children.
I had no expectations about fatherhood, really, but it's definitely a journey I'm glad to be taking. Number one, it's a great learning experience. When my mother told me it's a 24/7 job, she wasn't kidding.
Each child is biologically required to have a mother. Fatherhood is a well-regarded theory, but motherhood is a fact.
P. J. O'Rourke
There's so much negative imagery of black fatherhood. I've got tons of friends that are doing the right thing by their kids, and doing the right thing as a father - and how come that's not as newsworthy?
All fatherhood is very important because single mothers shouldn't have to raise sons or daughters; they need that help.
Fatherhood is great because you can ruin someone from scratch.
What I love most about fatherhood is the opportunity to be a part of the development process of a new life.
Fatherhood is not a matter of station or wealth. It is a matter of desire, diligence and determination to see one's family exalted in the celestial kingdom. If that prize is lost, nothing else really matters.
Ezra Taft Benson
Anyone who tells you fatherhood is the greatest thing that can happen to you, they are understating it.
I love every minute of fatherhood, staying up all night, changing nappies, kids crying, I find it really funny and inspiring. It connects you to the world in a new way.
Fatherhood is pretending the present you love most is soap-on-a-rope.
My childhood should have taught me lessons for my own fatherhood, but it didn't because parenting can only be learned by people who have no children.
Fatherhood is the best thing that could happen to me, and I'm just glad I can share my voice.
Having been a father for 19 years I realise fatherhood has changed me.
Fatherhood is a very natural thing; it's not something that shakes up my life but rather it enriches it.
The surprising thing about fatherhood was finding my inner mush. Now I want to share it with the world.
Older fatherhood isn't all bad: testosterone rates drop about 1% per year as men age, making them less reactive and more patient, and a professionally established middle-aged man is likely to have more time and money to devote to his kids than a twenty-something who's just getting started.
Most single guys I know think fatherhood is terrifying.
I was quite able at the insignificant work I did in MI6, but absolutely dysfunctional in my domestic life. I had no experience of fatherhood. I had no example of marital bliss or the family unit.
John le Carre
And in that time, I lost my dad and had kids of my own. It was like, OK, I get it now. I know what fatherhood is all about. And you look at your parents differently.
I think I'm actually built for fatherhood. I love to have a good time and play, but at the same time I've got a really serious side to me, and I think that's the balance you have to have. Get on your kids' level, but at any point in time, let them know who the parent is.
Fatherhood is the most amazing thing that could ever have happened in my life.
With marriage and fatherhood, I've finally found two fixed points in my life. They've taught me patience. They've also taught me that I don't need to feel guilty about being happy. My emotional seasons are less extreme.
Fatherhood isn't always a planned thing, but when it happens you just do it. It's very natural and in that sense it's not really difficult.
