I've divided the sayings about fathers into two pages: these Happy Fathers Day Quotes, which express the joy of the father-child relationship, and more of the Fathers Day Inspirational Quotes on a separate page. Those sayings express wisdom and insight about the relationship.
Any of the sayings on this page would fit nicely on a card accompanying one of the Unique Fathers Day Gifts featured on Best Meaningful Gifts.com.
Also, I've added some thoughts of my own following each of these Happy Fathers Day Quotes. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
Happy Fathers Day Quotes
A father is always making his baby into a little woman. And when she is a woman he turns her back again.
This seems to be true no matter how old the daughter - and the father - get! The thing is, the older I grow, the more I appreciate it.
There's something like a line of gold thread running through a man's words when he talks to his daughter, and gradually over the years it gets to be long enough for you to pick up in your hands and weave into a cloth that feels like love itself.
--John Gregory Brown
The above is my very favorite of all the Happy Fathers Day Quotes. Maybe because in my spare time I'm a fabric artist. I love the sensory touch experience, and the image of a cloth reminds of Dad's hug.
Blessed indeed is the man who hears many gentle voices call him father!
--Lydia M. Child
I think this is true for the father of every child, even if he has only one son or daughter. A true father's love extends to his son/daughter's friends - even to all children who need his love.
Fatherhood is pretending the present you love most is soap-on-a-rope.
And we've all given Dad soap on a rope at some time or other! (I know I have.)
You know, fathers just have a way of putting everything together.
Over the years, I've learned to appreciate the way Dad does this. I don't necessarily buy into all his finished ideas, but there's always value somewhere in how he "puts it together."
To her the name of father was another name for love.
My father used to play with my brother and me in the yard. Mother would come out and say, "You're tearing up the grass." "We're not raising grass," Dad would reply. "We're raising boys."
I think there has to be this difference between mothers and fathers. Whether he's raising sons or daughters, a Dad is the one we look to in the "outside world." Mom - even if she has a powerful career - models the "inner world" for us. I don't believe this is sexist. I think it acknowledges the special (and equal) abilities (generalizing here) of intuition and centeredness (Mom) and conquering manifest reality (Dad). We need both for balance.
My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person: he believed in me.
A Fathers Day card inscribed with the words, "Thanks for believing in me, Dad," would say it all.
It no longer bothers me that I may be constantly searching for father figures; by this time, I have found several and dearly enjoyed knowing them all.
Dad, you're someone to look up to no matter how tall I've grown.
My Dad's still taller than I am, even though he's starting to bend from age. I'm glad and thankful that I can still look up to him - both literally and metaphorically.
