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

The father of a daughter is nothing but a high-class hostage. A father turns a stony face to his sons, berates them, shakes his antlers, paws the ground, snorts, runs them off into the underbrush, but when his daughter puts her arm over his shoulder and says, ‘Daddy, I need to ask you something,’ he is a pat of butter in a hot frying pan. ~Garrison Keillor
Dad taught me everything I know. Unfortunately, he didn’t teach me everything he knows. ~Al Unser, Jr.

Be kind to thy father, for when thou wert young, who loved thee so fondly as he? He caught the first accents that fell from thy tongue, and joined in thy innocent glee. ~ Margaret Courtney
While these quotes are not going to tell you everything about being a father they do show you how important a father is to a child because they expand on the relationship that every child wants to have with their fathers. The one thing that you need to remember as a father is that not only do you show your children the way through life, but you also learn and grow from the things that your children show you.
