We've never seen the father here, but we have known the son, The finest type of manhood since the world was first begun, And summing up the works of God, I write with reverent pen. The greatest is the son he sent to cheer the lives of men. Through him we leaned the ways of God, and found the father's love; The son it was who won us back to him who reigns above. Our God did not come down himself to prove to men his worth, He sought our worship through the child he placed upon the earth. But be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, In spirit, in faith, in purity. How can I best express my life? Wherein does greatness lie: How can I long remembrance win, since I am born to die? Both fame and gold are selfish things; their charms may quickly flee, But I'm the father of a boy who came to speak for me. In him lies all I hope to be; his splendor shall be mine; I shall have done man's greatest work if only he is fine. If some day he shall help the world long after I am dead, In all that men shall say of him my praises shall be said, It matters not what I may win of fleeting gold or fame, My hope of joy depends alone on what my boy shall claim. My story must be told through him; for him I work and plan, Man's greatest duty is to be the father of a man.

A Quote by Dr. Paul W. Popenoe on automobiles, cheerfulness, children, day, fatherhood, good, justice, money, praise, respect, and responsibility

How you can prevent it! Set them a good example, keep cheerful, especially father's - let your children know you are pleased with them, (find something to praise them for even if it is only a hug at the end of the day) talk things over with your children, plat with them, respect them, give them responsibility, don't allow children to have too much money to just spend as they want, don't get them a car until they can pay for it and take care of the expenses.

A Quote by Diophantus on children, fatherhood, god, grief, life, marriage, science, and sons

His epitaph: This tomb hold Diophantus, Ah, what a marvel! And the tomb tells scientifically the measure of his life. God vouchsafed that he should be a boy for the sixth part of his life; when a twelfth was added, his cheeks acquired a beard; He kindled for him the light of marriage after a seventh, and in the fifth year after his marriage He granted him a son. Alas! late-begotten and miserable child, when he had reached the measure of half his father's life, the chill grave took him. After consoling his grief by this science of numbers for four years, he reached the end of his life.

A Quote by Dick Clark on fatherhood, humor, jokes, laws, and truth

Humor is always based on a modicum of truth. Have you ever heard a joke about a father-in-law?

A Quote by Delbert L. Stapley on age, belief, body, challenge, character, christ, church, day, divinity, evolution, faith, fatherhood, foolishness, god, indifference, liberals, life, men, sons, spirit, spirituality, truth, and elightenment

In this day of modern liberalism when revealed truth is so frequently questioned and the decrees of God challenged, we, members of the Church, cannot afford to be carried away by the philosophies and sophistries of men's teachings and become complacent and indifferent to such inroads on our faith in divine and spiritual things. Advocates in these fields of man's speculations frequently consider gospel teachings childish-therefore foolish and unsuited for this enlightened age in which we live. Regardless of man's claims to the contrary, God is still God; Christ is His son-His Only Begotten Son in the flesh. He is in the express image of His Father's person, and is our Redeemer, Savior, Lord, and King. The scriptures teach us that we are descended from the lineage of the Gods; therefore, we are created in their likeness and image, in both spirit and body, and we are endowed with like character traits, qualities, and powers. We are not the product of evolution from some lower organism of life as man speculates and would have us believe.

A Quote by Delbert L. Stapley on affliction, direction, experience, fatherhood, learning, obedience, perfection, strength, suffering, and support

We learn obedience, as the Savior did, by the things which we suffer. . . . Sometime in the eternities to come, we will see that our trials were calculated to cause us to turn to our Heavenly Father for strength and support. Any affliction or suffering we are called upon to bear may be directed to give us experience, refinement, and perfection.

If necessity is the mother of invention, discontent is the father of progress.

The best gift you can give to your father or mother is to let them know that you are emulating their ideals and that you are going to carry their name in respect and honor.

A Quote by David Oman McKay on fatherhood, heart, language, prayer, soul, spirit, and words

Prayer is the pulsation of a yearning, loving heart in tune with the Infinite, It is a message of the soul sent directly to a loving Father. The language is not mere words but spirit vibration.

A Quote by David Oman McKay on blessings, fatherhood, heart, language, prayer, sincerity, soul, spirit, virtue, words, and work

Prayer is the yearning of the spirit. It is the message of the soul sent directly to a loving father. The language is not mere words, but a loving heart in tune with the infinite. Sincere praying implies that when we ask for any blessing or virtue we should work for the blessing and cultivate the virtue.
