Father's Day Quotes

Fathers typically don't receive the same appreciation as mothers. People could go on and on about how great their mothers are, but have few things to say about their fathers. This is partly due to fathers historically playing the role of strict family patriarchs. Father’s Day is the perfect opportunity to change that. Here are a few quotes about fathers and fatherhood for all to enjoy.
