Father’s Day Quotes, Toasts And The National Alzheimer’s Association
As Father’s Day approaches, why not share your memories, stories and thoughts with Dear Old Dad by giving him a VoiceQuilt? One good way to begin is with a quote that best expresses your feelings. Here are a few of our favorites.
My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me. ~College basketball Coach Jim Valvano
Give yourself permission to dream. Fuel your kids’ dreams too. Once in a while, that might even mean letting them stay up past their bedtimes. ~Randy Pausch, author, “The Last Lecture”
He opened the jar of pickles when no one else could. He was the only one in the house who wasn’t afraid to into the basement by himself. He cut himself shaving, but no one kissed it or got excited about it. It was understood when it rained, he got the car and brought it around to the door. When anyone was sick, he went out to get the prescription filled. He took lots of pictures, but he was never in them. ~Erma Bombeck, humorist and author
A man never stands as tall as when he kneels to help a child. ~ Knights of Pythagoras
Or maybe you prefer something humorous:
She got her looks from her father. He’s a plastic surgeon. ~Groucho Marx
A father carries pictures where his money used to be. ~Unknown
Fatherhood is pretending the present you love the most is soap-on-a-rope. ~Bill Cosby
As Father’s day approaches, we hope you’ll thank your Dad - in whatever way feels most appropriate. We also hope you’ll take a moment and help VoiceQuilt give back. Three Dads and their families have graciously shared a wonderful “I love Dad” VoiceQuilt message. All you have to do is vote for YOUR favorite and VoiceQuilt will donate $1 to the National Alzheimer’s Association. It’s a terrific cause and we’ll even enter you into a random drawing for a steak dinner – so that you can treat your Dad in style this Father’s Day.
VoiceQuilt wants to help celebrate the special people in your life and this one is all about Dads. Please vote!
